Obama vs the Constitution

American Thinker provides a brief history of tyranny, and how our Constitution has provided over

“200 years of peace and stability across 3,000 miles of territory, with only one great breakdown, the American Civil War.  Protected by two great oceans and a constitutional balance of powers, millions of people born in the Old World were able to thrive in freedom — not perfect freedom, which does not exist, but far greater liberty than other major countries. “

Civic Literacy

When our group started meeting back in April of 2009, Roger brought a copy of the Constitution for each attendee.  He highlighted Article I Section 8: Powers of Congress (enumerated in 17 paragraphs) and the tenth Amendment :  “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States are reserved to the States respectively, or  to the people. ”

This was an eye opener to me as I can’t remember if I ever read the Constitution prior to this meeting.  I wasn’t alone and so when we had a candidates’ forum last year, I handed out a pocketbook copy of the Constitution to all attendees.

Last week, on January 6th, members of the new Republican-led House of Representatives took part in an unusual event: a reading of the U.S. Constitution on the floor of the chamber. This should happen every year!

From Hotair:

Elected officials know less about the Constitution than the public. So claims the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, which just concluded a five-year study on the American public’s knowledge of its foundational legal document.  The bad news: the general public gets an F, with just a 54% average on the 33-question civics test.  The worse news: those who identified themselves as public officeholders scored an average of five points worse than the general public.

Take the quiz yourself and see if you need a remedial civics class!

If President Obama’s motto is “Yes, we can,” the Constitution’s is “No, you can’t.”   –By U.S. Senator Jim DeMint

When a reporter asked House speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) during a press conference last year where the Constitution granted Congress the authority to enact an individual health-insurance mandate, she answered, “Are you serious? Are you serious?” Speaker Pelosi then dismissed the question and moved on to the next reporter.
