Democrat Congresswoman Justifies Obama Agenda with "The Constitution Does Not Cover Everything" - Audio


Here is audio of New Hampshire Democrat Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter telling a caller on a radio program, "The Constitution does not cover everything." She made the statement in answer to a caller who questioned where Congress thinks they have the authority to propose legislation like ObamaCare.

Shea-Porter rattled off a litany of things she said were "not in the Constitution," and then made the summary statement, "The Constitution does not cover everything."

Actually, it does provide clear principles to cover everything, the most basic of all principles that people ought to be free, and government is to be limited in what it does.

Members of Congress like Shea-Porter have lost the big picture principles that are in the Constitution, and they are instead all about reinterpreting it to support the radical leftist agenda they seek to impose on the nation. The caller's sentiments are reflecting the mood of a growing and fed-up number of Americans.

Since the FCC czar has expressed that the goal of this administration is to emulate the "Revolucion Bolivariana" of Venezuela, it's obvious they intend to do away with the Constitution. It explains the years of actions by Congress to tear down this country and destroy our economy in order to create a much larger mass of jobless. It's been a plan, not a coincidence. We need to wake up, and soon.

Congressman Carol Shea-Porter is not stupid but is wrongly (criminally?) playing games with the people concerning the Constitution. More specifically, regarding her deceptive argument that the Constitution doesn't cover some things, she is ignoring the Founder's simple rule concerning the division of federal and state government powers as evidenced by the 10th Amendment, one of the shortest, easiest to understand amendments in the Constitution.

10th Amendment: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

In other words, those powers not expressly delegated to the federal government by the Constitution, most of these powers listed in Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, are reserved to the states or the people, not the Oval Office and Congress. So Shea-Porter is deceiving people when she says that the Constitution does not cover everything because the 10th Amendment automatically delegates all powers not covered in the Constitution to the states or the people.

Finally, the following link should help people to understand why they are at fault for putting enemies of the Constitution like Congresswoman Shea-Porter into office.

The 16th & 17th Amendments and the big, corrupt fed. gov.

Save the pious "Protectors and Defenders of the Constitution" crap. Where were you folks when Bushie invaded Iraq, or his daddy went after Iraq the first time? The Constitution clearly says who has the power to decalre war, and it ain't the President. So where were your loud and aggrieved voices then?

The only reason you open your yaps now is because the guy you didn't vote for won the election. And you're sore losers. Get over it: America is a democratic republic. And the 70 million who voted Obama into office aren't going to let him change our system of government. But change how our government operates? Yeah, that's change I can and do believe in. The neocon mentality does us more harm than good.

And there are roughly 70 million people who agree with that basic premise.
