The new name for the Democrat Party should rightly be the CONTRA-CONSTITUTIONAL PARTY. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, contra means, in opposition or contrast to, which is a perfect description of the modern day Democrat Party’s opposition to the U.S. Constitution. It can no longer be thought of as the party of John F. Kennedy and other past great Democrat leaders such as Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman.
These icons were real leaders and believers in the greatness of America. While these presidents, like their predecessors, tried to exert as much authority as possible for the Executive Branch, they managed to stay within the structure of the Constitution. Even a casual observer would have to agree that the Democrat Party has swung so far to the left of center, Kennedy, and perhaps even Roosevelt and Truman would be considered ” Republicans” today!
The great Founders of that unique governing document, the U.S. Constitution, built-in a remarkable set of “checks and balances”, where the three branches of government, the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial, would wield equal power. Among the duties of each branch included checks against the other two branches to insure that the rights of the people and the states would be protected against the unlawful usurpation of authority that the govern had acceded to when the Constitution was ratified.
This document has served our nation well since 1787, but some Supreme Court Justices obviously do not understand the “concept” of this remarkable document and show outright ignorance and disdain which have placed bonafide cracks in our governing structure when in 2012, Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg told an Egyptian TV station that she would, “not recommend the U.S. Constitution as model for Egypt’s new government”, according to the Heritage Foundation’s Daily Signal.
You see, the problem is that the “U.S. Constitution is a rather old constitution“, Ginsburg said, and suggested that Egyptians should look instead to the Constitution of South Africa (written in 1996 and well over 100 pages in length) or perhaps the European Convention on Human Rights (written in 1953). These are “much more recent than the U.S. Constitution” . . . These lengthy and very wordy documents are an overkill and a bastardization of the English language, in an effort by government to micro manage every aspect of its citizenry’s lives. This sounds all too-familiar with the Contra-Constitutional Party we see in Democrats today.
The timeless beauty of the U.S. Constitution, according to the conservative Heritage Foundation is that the Constitution is still among the shortest and most elegantly written constitutions in the world. By comparison, South Africa’s constitution with its endless number of pages is filled with tables, schedules, and such elaborate passages detailing provisions for a Financial and Fiscal Commission including gobbledygook sections and subsections on complex issues that only a Philadelphia lawyer could understand if he were forced to read it from beginning to end.
The claim that the U.S. Constitution is obsolete or too antiquated to apply to the modern world, anyone with an ounce of sense would understand that it has earned its place at the top of the world’s best governing documents because it is based on the most enduring of all foundations, “Human Nature” that were first articulated centuries ago, been proven over time, and are not tied to the material conditions of a bygone age, or that would be restricted by future global conditions. The Constitution itself does not address political policy solutions, but rather creates a framework for a free people to confront and answer the political questions of their times. Imagine God declaring that the Bible should be discarded because it is an “old document” . . . go ahead and bastardize the Ten Commandments; they were meant for only a short period of time, and couldn’t possibly have any meaning in today’s secular world.
Politicians (both Democrats and Republicans) just don’t live in the real world. Most politicians, by nature tend to be lawyers and therefore are always lost in the age-old axiom of, “how can we fool them today”. Those of us who work real jobs and must live under and pay the price for the laws we are handed by the government, are fed up to our tonsils by those in power who believe they know what is better for us than we do. The Contra Constitutional Party and its cadre of liberal progressives who understandably idolize any constitution that does not severely restrict the power of government, is living proof as to why Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election.
Governing documents usually go far beyond merely establishing a framework for government. The South African Constitution addresses and guarantees progressive policies—such as environmental issues, welfare, and other aspects the leftists in politics want to control (and make us pay for) such as government handouts, and every social engineering idea they can dream of and put on the backs of the taxpayers.
Such government documents don’t just create a framework for government, but strive to layout every conceivable scenario that might possibly occur, providing their supposed postulated solutions, which could only work in an educational or sterilized research environment and lead to a promulgation of socialism/Marxism policies . . . in real life, most of their solutions are just more costly bureaucratic bloat, and have been proven time after time to be as irrelevant as the paper they are written on. To these elected fools, they only see governing as their road to more and more power and control over the people.
Is it any wonder that socialist countries around the world as well as the large metropolitan cities of America run by the Democrat Party, are all bordering on the edge of insolvency? As Margaret Thatcher once said in an interview with journalist Llew Gardner for Thames Television’s This Week program on 5 February 1976, “Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people’s money”. Additionally, socialism has proven to be a failure, bred by ignorance, and class envy. It’s end result has always been the equal sharing of misery, with the highest level of achievement being mediocrity.
The brilliance of the Founding fathers was designing the U.S. Constitution to be a “framework for governance”, rather than being written to micro manage every aspect of the government and every thought of the American people. It contains just 7,591 words including the 27 amendments, and is not bogged down with rules, regulations, and laws that would probably be obsolete every few years, and would have had to have been a massive volume of pages, to cover governance of the U.S. over the passage of time since 1787, written as anything other than a framework by which to govern. Written 240 years ago it has proven to be the most effective governing constitution ever conceived by man.
By employing the framework based on natural law, under its guidelines we have the people limiting the powers of government, and a guarantee of our inalienable rights to freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is the very foundation of our country, yet it is flexible enough to adapt to changing times by using the amendment process to make modifications or adjustments when necessary. In simple terms, “James Madison and Company” had a unique perception in 1787 and gave America the map to the future not just a constitution.
As brilliant as the Founders were, no one could ever anticipate events far into the future. They were smart enough to create a process that the people could use to make changes which would be needed to accommodate the needs of the country. The process was purposely designed to prohibit changes based on the spur-of-the-moment whims of the political party in power. Under Article V of the Constitution, “on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states”, the amendment process can begin. The amendment process necessitates the legislators to debate the issue carefully and fully over time, and then requires the approval of 3/4 of the states to be ratified. This is a legislative process yet does not need the signature of the president. The amendment process has been used 27 times.
Additionally the Constitution has a built-in protection for the people as was spelled out under this same Article V, whereby, even if the legislators refuse to make modifications as needed, a final redress to the concerns of the citizens, We the People can by-passed the governing body to amend the Constitution ourselves. Yes, the Constitution can be amended without permission from Congress to make amendments, but circumstances have not yet been such that this second avenue of amendment has been used.
This one article alone however, is more than enough proof that the Founding Fathers feared the possibility of any government encroaching on the freedom and liberties of the people, and was the reason so many safeguards we the people have at our disposal to reign-in a government that may become deaf to the will of the people . . . in such a situation, the amendment(s) “shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states”.
With these thoughts in mind about governance, and with the changing of the guard so to speak, with the election of Donald Trump, it is imperative that the country understands the perilous course that the Democrat Party has charted in an attempt to nullify the results of the 2016 presidential election. Subverting the Constitution and the will of the people, using every avenue at its disposal including lies, innuendo, false evidence, violence, upheaval, disorder, and assault and battery – the media, the educational system, the entertainment industry, including the corruption of our national security agencies, and politicizing the Justice Department – are the primary means the “resistance” is using to overthrow the duly elected presidency of Donald Trump by the Democrat Party.
Bestowing upon the Democrat Party the new name, Contra-Constitutional Party would be an appropriate move by those of us who believe in the Greatness of America, that our country was built on the Judeo-Christian beliefs and natural laws that give us our freedom and liberty, and which has set us apart from all other countries . . . God Bless America.
