"If the personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution inhibit the
government's ability to govern the people, we should look to limit those
guarantees." William Jefferson Clinton

"The Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. It says what the states can’t do to you, it says what the federal government can’t do to you, but it doesn’t say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf." Barack Hussein Obama

As we saw in this video Between Two Rivers first alerted me to, Congresscritter Phil Hare (as in Hare-brained) from Illinois, shows why Chicago still holds the Most Corrupt Political Machine in the Country trophy. New Orleans’ strong efforts to take the title away, especially after Katrina, led Chicago to pull out all the stops on corruption and cover-ups, giving us President Barack Obama.

At any rate, Phil Hare, a tiny clueless, corrupt, power-hungry cog in a great big clueless, corrupt, power-hungry wheel committed the greatest sin for an Illinois politician, or any politician for that matter; he told the truth. What’s worse, he told the truth on video.

Caught with an inconvenient truth in regards to politicians’ (and not just those with a D behind their name) sheer contempt and disdain for the Constitution and We the People, Hare & Co. responded unthinkingly and mechanically with the same old leftist programmed responses….deny, obfuscate, and make counter accusations. (A) Deny: “My statement was taken out of context.” (B): Obfuscate: Muddy the waters, or change the subject entirely, especially to handy Big Lie talking points. “People are dying every day because they don’t have health care!” (C) Make counter accusations: Blame the opposition. “Victim of a Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy!” Lately, the “Hate” or “Racist” card just gets dealt into the hand automatically as well. Anything to stifle discourse. Phil and his handlers did basically just that.

Someone named Jaika K came charging to the defense of Phil the Shill on his Facebook page. "I'm truly sorry Congressman Hare had to endure heckling from the Party-of-NO. They pushed him and twisted his words until they got a statement they could run with. He doesn't spend time worrying about the Constitution because he knows it protects the rights of Congress, one of which is to pass and uphold laws for the benefit of Americans. Democrats will fight hard to re-elect their courageous leaders! We are full of Hope not Hate."

I know I don’t have to point this out to my regular readers, but for any progressive spies: “He doesn’t spend time worrying about the Constitution because he knows it protects the right of Congress…” WTF!?!? The nanny welfare state and what the government passes off as education these days has obviously succeeded in the mission; the dumbing down of America and turning John Q. Citizen into a helpless sheep. If that’s her definition of what the Constitution is and does, God help us all.

A glimmer of hope is still alive with folks like us. And folks like Paula D, who said. "My congressman doesn't care about the Constitution...disturbing. He has read the bill three times but can't explain it other than to give sob stories. Then don't know the difference between the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. November can not come soon enough for the 17th District and the country."

All incumbents need to go. Actually, just about everybody in the District of Columbia needs to go, D or R, but we’ll take what we can get in November. It’s just a shame it can’t be like the old days, when we could ride them out of town on a rail and covered in tar and feathers.
