Conservatives don't believe in the US Constitution.
What in the Constitution justified the decision in Bush v. Gore? Where in the Constitution does it say that the US Supreme Court has the power to stop the counting of the popular vote in a presidential election rather than leave the decision of how to count the votes up to the Supreme Court of each state? What kind of usurpation of power was that decision? It was a trampling of American democracy. It was a Fascist decision, pure and simple. In 2000, the American president was Appointed by a 5 to 4 decision of the Supreme Court, not elected by the votes of 200 million Americans. Talk about judicial activism. Talk about judicial restraint . Talk about the original intent of the framers and the Founding Fathers. Baloney!
Rather, let's talk about the hypocrisy of today's Conservatives who rail against judicial activism and dare to call themselves interpreters of the Constitution's original intent. What bald-faced liars and hypocrites these Conservatives are.
Where in the Constitution does it say that corporations are people and are entitled to the free speech protections accorded to individuals? Where in the Constitution does it say that the states and governments which created these artificial creatures -- corporations -- cannot also limit their right of free speech and the amount of money they can contribute to political campaigns? What in the original Constitution gives corporations the free speech protections accorded to living, breathing human beings?
Frankly, it seems to me that the only part of the original Constitution that Conservatives truly believe in -- heart and soul -- is the provision which says that Negroes are only 3/5 of a human being. When Conservatives say they are original strict constructionists, that seems to be the one part of the original Constitution that they most fully support.
