The Left’s New Crusade Against the “Flawed Constitution”

You have to give it to leftist “scholars” and their brain-dead acolytes.

The light bulb goes off for these people and they treat it like no one had ever come up with this idea/thought/topic before.

Take for example the Constitution.

Everyone with a brain knows the document has been flawed since it was written.

The “anti-federalists” spilled considerable ink on the subject.

If you’ve taken any of my courses–or read my book The Founding Fathers Guide to the Constitution–you know that those in favor of the document had a hard time convincing a reluctant public to adopt such a flawed document.

Executive government, a political Supreme Court, and a central authority with virtually unlimited power show that the document Americans bought in 1787-1788 isn’t the one they were sold.

But leftists are just figuring this out thanks in large part to Donald Trump.

If he only had one redeeming quality, this is it.

When I was in grad school, my roommate and I would discuss how someone could so drastically undermine the presidency that everyone would learn to hate it and the flawed Constitution.

Trump pulled it off, maybe.

Or maybe the left did it to themselves. Either way, confidence in the executive office is at historic lows.

That’s great.

We should never have adopted an American king in the first place.

Leftist legal “scholar” Aziz Rana warns in a New York Times opinion piece that the Constitution won’t save us from Trump.

The horror.

It didn’t save us from Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Wilson, FDR, Truman, Johnson, Nixon, H.W. Bush, Clinton, W. Bush, Obama, or Biden, either.

It never could. But after Trump, leftist dopes like Rana are worried that someone else might assume office and abuse power.

These people have no self-awareness.

Of course, Rana’s solution is a summary of every current leftist talking point, right down to abolishing the Electoral College, adding more States, and eliminating the powers of the Senate.

You know, everything that would rig the game in their favor.

It’s always about power. As Calhoun pointed out, the Constitution never mattered.

But Rana’s piece was great Podcast fodder.

I discuss it on Episode 966 of The Brion McClanahan Show.
