Enter The Know-Nothings

We have another Republican candidate for president who doesn’t understand the Constitution but has no problem using it erroneously:

“As president, I would take seriously the Tenth Amendment,” former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) told a friendly crowd during the speech kicking off his presidential campaign on Tuesday. As Huckabee understands the founding document, it “was explicitly clear about keeping the federal government small, so it would be able to focus on some simple things like providing a military and securing our borders.” Meanwhile, Huckabee called out one particular federal government function that he believes to be unconstitutional — “there is no constitutional authority to dictate education from the federal government. Why even have a federal Department of Education? It’s flunked and it need to be expelled.”

Mike, let me introduce you to the general welfare clause. The Congress most certainly has the power to shape and improve America. The Tenth can’t abridge that power. Stop editing the fucking document, sit down, shut up- you are hopeless. Why is it that the people who love the Constitution so much don’t know what’s in it?

About The Head Seminarian

I went to war, I went to father, I came, I saw, and it is a mess. I wouldn't have it any other way. Shitty people amuse me, people who act like human volcanoes fascinate me like fine art. Life is beautiful, and it is under attack in a manner heretofore unseen in history. I might be writing a blog. Yes, that's all I am doing, now that I think about it. Even I forget sometimes, so we're cool.
