Leftists want a “living Constitution”, one that is flexible, one that allows changes to be made without a Constitutional Amendment process. As long as the decision is in their favor, then a handful of Oligarchs, lawyers who think they know what’s best for the people, can make the decisions.
As some liberal websites are saying, Justice Kennedy condoned the idea of a “living” Constitution with his decisions last week because they changed the Constitution without a process. They didn’t amend law. In three recent cases, they wrote the law.
Oligarchical Collectivism is theorized in George Orwell’s 1984. It explains the political philosophy of totalitarianism through story telling. In the fictional Oceania, people who don’t abide by the will of the collective ruled by Big Brother are tortured, re-educated or executed for their political insanity.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, in an interview with World Net Daily, told their reporter Leo Hohman, that if the Supreme Court can force people to buy health care from a private business, there is nothing it can’t do.
He is very concerned about the way the same-sex marriage decision came down.
“The thing that bothers me the most in this decision, though, is the way the court acted as essentially five oligarchs,” he told WND. “If we wanted to change the U.S. Constitution, there is a process for that, and there was a robust debate going on in all states, where some states elected to change the definition of marriage, others had not, and these five decided to act like legislators. And my concern is, it takes away from the legislative authority of Congress. And if they can do it with gay marriage, they can do it with anything.”
The problem with the same-sex marriage ruling is the way it was done. It was done unconstitutionally to achieve what most believe should happen. In the end, we were ill-served. Our Constitution is our rule of law. Without it, we have anarchy.
The Obamacare decision was not much better, he said.
“You had one justice, Roberts, go along with the five other oligarchs and change the way people get their health care in the United States and make them buy a product,” he said.
Roberts actually said the words didn’t say what they said. He defined “state” to mean any government, including the federal government.
Sheriff Clarke suggested that Conservatives might need a revolution to change the course of events.
He said our Constitution is being “obliterated” and “our democratic way of life is being transformed into a socialist agenda, and I don’t know what it’s going to take short of a Lexington-Concord type moment,” Clarke said.
“We had a Civil War. We see a great divide forming again. That’s a part of the landscape that has come from Obama; he’s an Alinskyite, and he knows you have to create a critical mass. So they’ve created all this division, stirring up racial animosity in our cities, rich against poor in the Occupy movement, and now it’s this religious divide. That’s why I keep telling people gay marriage is not the issue; you’re missing it. You have to peel back the layers and look at this transformation. It happens subtly right before your eyes, and you’ll miss it.”
Back in January, Sheriff Clarke warned of a revolution if the government attempted to seize guns. He also said he wouldn’t comply if ordered via Executive Order.
“The problem with the way they decided is they did not end the issue. They now opened up the question of how do we protect the free exercise of religion? What are churches going to do? What are businesses going to do? And that’s usually what happens in life when you take shortcuts. You just open up other avenues of contention,” Clarke said. “I’m concerned, because it just became murkier to me. It didn’t clear anything up.”
Sheriff Clarke is stating the obvious – the people should have made the decisions.
He said that people have to decide how they are going to respond. “That’s going to be for individuals to determine on their own. I believe the Constitution is about individual liberties, not group liberties.”
The Constitution is being used to turn our country into a collective where the Hegelian president gets to take away our individual liberties.
He said that in accordance with Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals he is destroying “faith or religion” because it does not conform to what they believe.
He also talked about the incrementalism used to make people come around. It’s an offshoot of Cass Sunstein’s “nudge” theory.
“It’s like anything else in life: If you do something you’ve never done before that violates your sense of right and wrong, at first it’s difficult, but over time it gets easier and easier. That’s the overriding strategy of the radicals as they seek to transform our society,” Clarke said. “I read Alinsky’s book about 10 years ago, and you can see what this whole process is about.”
“After a big decision like this, people scream and holler, ‘This is bad for the country,’ and then we just acquiesce,” Clarke said. “I believe one of these decisions might just be a catalyst to not just say we don’t like it but to actually do something, to defy this stuff.
“And that’s what churches are supposed to do is resist. And if the court comes back and says you don’t have a right to exercise your religion, then they’re going to have to decide what to do next. … But who would have thought that in the 21 century homosexuality would come out of the closet and churches would be forced to go into the closet?”
Speaking of churches, most have remained silent except for some like the Episcopalians who said they will perform same-sex marriages.
He pointed out that Obama now says we have the freedom to “worship” not “religion” which is a not-so-subtle change to our Constitution.
The Daily Signal pointed out that Barack Obama has consistently used the phrase “freedom of worship” in lieu of “freedom of religion”.
The administration has done something similar to the Second Amendment. On the White House website, it’s defined : “The Second Amendment gives citizens the right to bear arms”. The Second Amendment actually says, “… the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
We can’t just survive, Sheriff Clarke says. “If we don’t resist, we can see what is happening right before our eyes.”
