Constitutional Lessons For the New Congress

From Laura Flanders at GRITtv (video):

It might seem amusing for government officials to read a government document as proof that government is the problem, but instead of laughing, people of the progressive bent might do better to read along.

While that people's democracy of Adams and Jefferson is still a work in progress, Republican legislators don't own the Constitution. In fact, they should be held accountable to it: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare...” Oh my! All that talk of of Common, General, and "We the People" -- don't tell Glenn Beck --it sounds like a front for socialism.

Shit, reality sounds like socialism to Miss Becky.
