Republicans Who Oppose Constipation Read Document They Do Not Understand In Congress

One of the many contradictions of the conservative movement is that they oppose the system of government established by our Constitution while frequently citing the Constitution as justification for their reactionary views. They have no concept of how the Constitution was written after the failure of the Articles of Confederation, which established a government more along the lines advocated by today’s conservatives. They actively oppose many important aspects of the Constitution, such as separation of church and state, while desiring to eliminate several amendments.

These Republicans who oppose the actual content of the Constitution had the document they are quite ignorant about read upon taking control of the House of Representatives. It is doubtful that their ignorance of the Constitution will be changed by this reading.

Rather than reading the Constitution which they oppose, Republicans might have been better off reading the Conservative Constitution written by David Cole, who teaches constitutional law at Georgetown University and is the legal affairs correspondent for the Nation. This version shows what Republicans really stand for.

Yet another irony of this Constitutional reading is that the Republicans have already violated the Constitution by allowing two members to vote before being sworn in. There’s little doubt, based upon their history, that the authoritarian right will propose far more serious violations of the Constitution.
