April 3, 2012

Barack Obama lashed out at the supreme court yesterday (based on what some speculate is a leak from his former Solicitor General, Elena Kagan, that the court has found some or all of the bill unconstitutional), stating that the overturning of ObamaCare would be an act of judicial activism.  Now, either Obama does not understand judicial activism, or [...]

Article V of the United States Constitution discusses the concept of amending the Constitution.  Most people are familiar with the traditional way of amending the Constitution – 2/3 of each house of Congress proposes amendments, which then have to be ratified by the state legislatures or by conventions in 3/4 of the states.  But there [...]

Shredding the Constitution Under the Guise of Economic Stimulus

March 16, 2009

Several Governors, most notably Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC) and Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), have refused stimulus funds, due to the enormous amount of strings attached.  Yet due to a provision in the stimulus bill itself, legislatures have the power to override the Governor’s decision, and it appears that at least in South Carolina, that provision [...]

Democrats Ignore Constitution in D.C. Voting Rights Bill

February 20, 2009

The D.C. Voting Rights Bill is a perfect example of why Democrats should never be taken seriously when they accuse other people of violating the Constitution.
