Has the very notion that we still have the Constitution and Bill of Rights as a legal basis now laughable? Media reports have begun addressing our society as ‘post-constitutional America’, and perhaps they’re tragically correct.
In the entire history of the nation, and in what should include today, the Constitution has stood as the indisputable law of the land. And in the eyes of those who understand how true liberty and true tyranny work, it certainly still should be. But in the eyes of those who wish to dismantle it in order to further the takeover and control of the United States public, the Constitution is now nothing more than a piece of paper standing in the way of their incessant absorption of power.
HOT WAR ON THE CONSTITUTION
I’m talking about the sociopaths that head up the Department of Homeland Security, which goes way beyond simply ignoring the Constitution. The worthless, expensive, and damaging agency behind the TSA now openly challenges the Constitution’s authority and the very founding principals of the United States with its own regulations. No longer are these government agencies in a ‘cold war’ of sorts against the Constitution and civil liberties, in fact, but an openly hot one that is increasing like never before.
Specifically, I’m talking about the DHS creation of literal ‘Constitution free zones’, in which the agency stands above the Constitution in authority and declares that the Bill of Rights does not exist for over 197 million within this nation. We’re talking about searches with no suspicion or warrants that essentially burn the Fourth Amendment.
And that’s not even getting into the highly invasive TSA ‘security’ measures that include groping young boys and detaining 3-year-old little girls in wheelchairs with medical conditions on their way to Disney World. That alone is enough to add credence to the notion of a ‘post-constitutional America’, which is the phrase used in an Alternet article I discovered entitled ‘We’re in a Post-Constitutional America: Our Country Is Going Sideways in Plain Sight, and Nobody’s Saying Much About It’.
The sad reality is that the article is really quite on point, as devastating of an admission as that is. We now have whistleblowers like Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning demonized by the discredited media for revealing the inner workings of our corrupt government, and it’s now up to foreign nations to rescue them from our own government. And unless we do something about the erosion of our liberties now, the Constitution is quickly on track to be completely erased by the very same high level politicians who seek to destroy it.
