Does No One Read the Constitution?

I get that people mis-speak and I hope that’s all this was.  But… really?

After using illegal immigrants as props to push the DREAM Act, Sen. Durbin (D-IL) made the following statement at a Senate committee hearing:

“When I look around this room, I see America’s future. Our doctors, our teachers, our nurses, our engineers, our scientists, our soldiers, our Congressman, our Senators and maybe our President.”

This is basic constitutional stuff, Senator.  You have to be born American, to be a US President.

I was also aghast to hear Re. Sheila Jackson Lee say that abortion was a “constitutional right.”  The constitution’s not that long; I don’t think knowing the basics are too much to ask of our representatives.  (And no matter what one thinks of abortion, it is not a right listed in the constitution.)

About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
