Open thread: Let’s celebrate New Year’s by giving up on the Constitution

posted at 8:31 pm on December 31, 2012 by Allahpundit

There may or may not be fiscal-cliff action tonight — a Senate vote of some sort is likely, a House vote is not — so here’s your thread for Congress-watching and/or holiday revelry. Either way, drinking is mandatory.

In lieu of a QOTD, let me leave you with an excerpt from the op-ed page of the liberal establishment’s flagship paper. 2012 was a banner year for them: The Supreme Court upheld ObamaCare and a younger, more diverse electorate delivered four more years to The One. The tectonic political realignment that they thought had happened four years ago might actually have happened this year. What’s left for a leftist to dream about after two victories as momentous as that? Jettisoning the final check on their power, I guess:

As the nation teeters at the edge of fiscal chaos, observers are reaching the conclusion that the American system of government is broken. But almost no one blames the culprit: our insistence on obedience to the Constitution, with all its archaic, idiosyncratic and downright evil provisions…

Our obsession with the Constitution has saddled us with a dysfunctional political system, kept us from debating the merits of divisive issues and inflamed our public discourse. Instead of arguing about what is to be done, we argue about what James Madison might have wanted done 225 years ago.

As someone who has taught constitutional law for almost 40 years, I am ashamed it took me so long to see how bizarre all this is. Imagine that after careful study a government official — say, the president or one of the party leaders in Congress — reaches a considered judgment that a particular course of action is best for the country. Suddenly, someone bursts into the room with new information: a group of white propertied men who have been dead for two centuries, knew nothing of our present situation, acted illegally under existing law and thought it was fine to own slaves might have disagreed with this course of action. Is it even remotely rational that the official should change his or her mind because of this divination?

And that, my friends, is how America is finally Perfected. Let a thousand Wilsonian flowers bloom.

Thanks to all of you for reading these past 12 months. See you next year!

I wonder if ALL of the states will go along with the idea of NO Constitution? Seems to me that once pandora’s box is opened, many states may simply decide to not be a part of the ‘new order’.

A liberal friend linked this article on FaceDURRRK, describing the Constitution as “American Scripture” and putting his contempt for it/both on full display. Brave soul that I’m sure he is, I’d expect him to fall back on “JUST KIDDING, GOSH, Y SO SERIOUS” if pressed to have the courage of his convictions and just admit his disregard for the supreme law of the land.

Years ago I happened to be making conversation at a gathering with a brilliant young Danish lawyer who tilted left even within his home country.

He mentioned in passing that he didn’t fancy the U.S. system because it made it “too difficult to make changes.”

I’d never heard a better unintended endorsement of the U.S. Constitution or the checks and balances of our system until I read this article.

Why is it these constitution haters all have to point out how they are constitutional scholars of one kind or another? If they truly were scholars of the constitution, they would understand the constitution was nothing more than a brake on federal power. It has nothing to do with who wanted when. It’s designed limits on power are inherently timeless.

No sooner was the Constitution in place than our leaders began ignoring it. John Adams supported the Alien and Sedition Acts, which violated the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of speech. Thomas Jefferson thought every constitution should expire after a single generation. He believed the most consequential act of his presidency — the purchase of the Louisiana Territory — exceeded his constitutional powers.

I started to answer this, but now I don’t see the point. The article is sophistry, and correcting it would mean rewriting it.

I’ll just avoid from now on clicking links to New York Times editorials, so that I don’t inflate their visitor numbers and help them sell advertising space on their website.

What I hate most about the Constitution:

The 3rd amendment:

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

What part of the Constitution do you hate the most?

Seriously … this is my least favorite part:

The 16th amendment:

The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

“Homicide rates are down since the 90′s due almost in total to abortion. 20 yrs after abortion is legalized, homicides fall and keep falling. Because so many potential killers were never born.”

Yes, well, they’ve been ignoring /re-writing the constitution for a LONG time, as the article so astutely points out. I don’t see why they’d go about fully repealing it, when they can simply invent new definitions of words and find penumbras whenever they need an excuse to expand the definitions even more.

But sure, why not just end the farce and have an up and down vote on repealing the constitution?

Sigh… All of my guns sank to the bottom of the pacific ocean in a freak boating accident off the coast of Arizona… o_O

Let a thousand Wilsonian flowers bloom.

… as I gleefully spray many gallon jugs of Round-up on them.

Wishing all of you at HotAir a happy, healthy, prosperous New Year. Let’s do it in spite of Obama, sort of like that old aphorism: “Living well is the best revenge.”

Former druggie? Interesting, didn’t know that. But yeah, everyone loves a self righteous prohibitionist.

It’s for the protection of the entire neighborhood…and what’s left of my wife’s dignity.

Hey bud, fancy seeing you over here.

I don’t think the government should be in the prohibition business or in the sin tax business, so I agree that drugs should be legal and not taxed any differently then anything else.

The “sort of” was that obviously he was being facetious … no one wants to give drugs to kids. It’s a parents job to keep that from happening, but thats a different issue.

OK, good enough.
