My Life Verse

God causes all things to work together for good, for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose...

Throughout my life, in all its ups and downs, this has been the one constant truth I can confess.

Oh why do you rattle on so about the Constitution? It's a "living document" that is supposed to adapt and be tailored to fit the times. There's no need for it to be treated and interpreted so narrowly against the greater will and needs of our government and it's citizens. The Supreme Court justices have, on numerous occasions, clearly implied that the Constitution is not the letter of law and rights, but rather the guide by which our nation "evolves", refines and clarifies constitutional boundaries for government and individual.

The Patriot Act doesn't infringe on the 4th Amendment, the justices have told us that this is so.

Government shall have the right to take (force or seize) your private property for the greater good of the local community and that it does not infringe on the 5th Amendment ("..nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation").

The mandated must-purchase provision of ObamaCare doesn't infringe on the 9th and 10th amendments-- the justices have told us that this is so.

So, the IRS doing what it has done with regard to the extra scrutiny of conservative groups; the Department of Justice secretly obtaining telephone records from the AP News Service; and the Executive Branch and Department of State withholding critical information regarding their respective actions pertaining to the Benghazi terrorist attacks and resulting deaths--- all of these actions must therefore be protected by the "flexible and adaptable" nature of the Constitution, after all the government does know whats best for us-- and only has the most noble of intentions in all that it does-- right!?

Now Gordon... one might think that you are being a bit sarcastic in those comments.... however, since I know you so well, I, of course understand that nothing is further from your mind.... ;>)
