Q. Are the ONLY ones bound by the Constitution
Edited on Wed Oct-09-13 06:42 AM by No Elephants
the sheeple people who pay all of government's bills?

Just asking.

'Cause I don't know about you, but I'm feelling like we don't have any real rights anymore that government cannot rationalize taking away and we don't have any real representation anymore unless we are lobbyists for big business. (Maybe we never did, but I happen to be living now.) And they get plenty of help rationalizing away their wrongs by the fans of whichever "team" happens to be ignoring the Constitution at the moment. (And the chief spokeman for that beleaguered document was a man who feared "mob" rule--also known in some circles as "the will of the American people.)

BTW, Scalia said recently that even he would amend the provision I quoted in my OP if he could. Hey, why not? He amends the Constitution quite often, while pretending to be ascertaining the intent of the Framers, whom apparently agreed with each other on everything, including channeling as one through Scalia.

That reminds of an OP I've been wanting to do about Scalia. Not today, though.

Meanwhile, thanks for the "interesting."
