The attempt to achieve a desired result using extra-constitutional means isn’t new. However, this ruse is a new low in political opportunism, as the contradiction is so obvious even a constitutional scholar can comprehend it. Politics in the U.S. has degenerated to the point where it is fashionable to cite the Constitution only when it conforms to one’s political objectives. When the Constitution as written does not conform to one’s political convenience, it is equally fashionable to ignore it or to pretend that it means something that it does not. The so-called “Living Consititution” theory has been assumed by all the political players, including republicans who have previously been somewhat less inclined to betray their oath of office.p>At this juncture it is apparent that that anything goes, and the Rights of the People as stated in the Constitution remain secure only to the extent that they conform with the convenience of the ruling elite. This is a recipe for a dictatorship or a revolution. br> — Bud Hammons /p> p> PRICELESS br> Re: John Tamny’s Embrace the Wealth Gap /p> p>I spend rich.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
