Obama thinks our Constitution is flawed.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on October 27th, 2008

From Bill Whittle at National Review Online:

“Speaking on a call-in radio show in 2001, you can hear Senator Obama say things that should profoundly shock any American ó or at least those who have not taken the time to dig deeply enough into this manís beliefs and affiliations. Abandon all hope, ye who enter here. (click “here” for Obama audio on YouTube)

Barack Obama, in 2001:

“You know, if you look at the victories and failures of the civil-rights movement, and its litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded was to vest formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples. So that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at a lunch counter and order and as long as I could pay for it, Iíd be okay, but the Supreme Court never entered into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society.

And uh, to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasnít that radical. It didnít break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution ó at least as itís been interpreted, and Warren Court interpreted it in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties: [It] says what the states canít do to you, says what the federal government canít do to you, but it doesnít say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf. (italics added)

And that hasnít shifted, and one of the, I think, the tragedies of the civil-rights movement was because the civil-rights movement became so court-focused, uh, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change. And in some ways we still suffer from that.”

He thinks the Constitution should say what government should do for the people, especially that it should outline the distribution of wealth. Fact is, the purpose of the Constitution is to protect citizens from the power of the federal governement.

  1. Don DeBusk Says:

    As with all liberals, he has no knowledge of history. Prior to the Constitution of the United States of America, ALL governments were based on the idea of command and control. The Constitution of the United States of America is fundementally about keeping government out of your head, your body, your home and your pockets. Since before the ink was dry, there have been those who have sought to invade these; some, to great success.
    I find it tremendously ironic that those who pretend to be the greatest supporters of the Constitution of the United States of America, would also seek to upbraid the right of the individual to do with and to one’s body what one will. You may agree with one’s choice, or not, but that is where YOUR right ends. The idea that government should dictate these things is abhorrent and treasonous.

    My pride in America and in being an American is based in one thing alone; by belief that the Constitution of the United States of America is the greatest document ever written. I live by it and would die for it. Those who would tread on it, decry its content, or seek to change it are my enemies. I cry for Thomas Jefferson every night, then pray for his peace of mind beyond the grave.
