Nancy and the constitution

June 30, 2012

When Nancy Pelosi, asked where the Constitution authorized the mandate, exclaimed “Are you serious? Are you serious?” she was utterly ingenuous. People steeped in Congress’ culture of unbridled power find it incomprehensible that the Framers fashioned the Constitution as a bridle.

Maybe it’s just me, but I simply can’t fathom how one cannot learn from history.  Government entitlements and overspending have brought down more towns, cities, states and countries than any other cause.  Socialism has failed EVERY time it has been tried.  Yet, there is always a group willing to step up and claim ‘This time it will be different’.  And it never is.

It must be about the power, the control one has over people and the ‘feel good’ that comes of giving stuff away.  The only problem, of course, is that every dollar the government gives to someone, it had to take from someone else.
