New York Times Op Ed: “Let’s Give Up on the Constitution”
January 2, 2013
This New York Times Op Ed by Louis Michael Seidman, a constitutional law professor at Georgetown University, is one of the most absurd and dangerous articles I have read in a very long time. This guy’s incredible conclusion is that it is the Constitution of the United States itself that is causing all that ails the nation at this time. Not once did I read about the Federal Reserve, or the “war on terror,” or the banker bailouts, or the complete destruction of the rule of law in recent years. Nope, none of that. Instead, this scholar’s conclusion is that the founding document, which created the fertile breeding ground for freedom and free markets and led to tens of millions of people to flee to from all corners of the globe, is the problem.
I suppose someone failed to remind Mr. Seidman that the oath of office for the military and those that hold political office continues to be:
I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
