The Constitution limits power and thus often gets in the way of Left’s notions of equality, redistribution, social reconstruction, and safety. These days, the only two inalienable rights in the founding document are abortion and gay marriage. The rest — self-defense, speech, due process—is all up for debate and modification.I've titled a lot of posts "The Left hates free speech" because they're very comfortable trying to muzzle free speech, whether through overturning Citizens United or prosecuting Exxon for global warming heresy. This morning on "Face the Nation", Dianne Feinstein averred that a new gun-control proposal that completely violates due process is kosher because - hey - you can go to an appeals court to have your Constitutional rights restored.
Isn't that nice of our tyrannical overlords?
