Constitutional hurdle

The Obama Depression Extender (which he calls a "stimulus") doesn't pass constitutional muster. In fact, it doesn't even make it past the preamble, which states:

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare...." thud. It just hit the wall and failed. "General Welfare" is something that benefits everyone. This 800 trillion dollar debt is not general welfare, it is particular welfare and is therefore un-constitutional. In fact, any bill with earmarks (and this one is 100% earmarks) is un-constitutional.

To those who put their hopes in the Supreme Court: do you think these empty robes will strike down this bill as un-constitutional? No...they probably think Obama is the best president we've ever had empty robe has empathy for an empty suit.

The Leader of the Free World speaks

"The United States should take a lesson from the pages of Russian history and not exercise excessive intervention in economic activity and blind faith in the state's omnipotence. In the 20th century the Soviet Union made the state's role absolute. In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive, and this lesson cost the Soviet people dearly. Nobody wants to see that repeated anywhere. Nor should we turn a blind eye to the fact that the spirit of free enterprise including the personal responsibility of business people, investors and shareholders for their own decisions is being eroded in the last few months. There is no reason to believe that we can achieve better results by shifting responsibility onto the state." ---Vladimir Putin

Why can't we find a leader like this? The best and the brightest political mind of the 21st century is the leader of......Russia?? Actually, the Russia of today is far more powerful than the Soviet Union ever was because the Russia of today is led by a man who knows what righteousness is and from where it comes and makes his decisions based on this knowledge. Glory be to God for Vladimir Putin.
