Uncommon Sense

politics and society are, unfortunately, much the same thing

Suddenly we care about the law of the land?

Respect the Constitution

Respect the Constitution

For years progressives (of both major parties) have pushed ever greater restrictions on free speech, freedom of religion, right to bear arms, the freedom of association, etc. Ironically, some rights not even mentioned in the constitution are lauded as sacrosanct.

Take for example abortion. While health care undergoes an overhaul with Obamacare, including ever more regulation of the health care industry, the invented right of abortion somehow escapes certain health care regulations that should pertain to it, especially since this “right” is sold to the American people as a “health care issue.”

But at this moment the big talking point in defense of the Affordable Care Act is “law of the land.” Please. If progressives gave a damn about the law of the land why all the push for gun control, hate speech codes, etc.? Progressives can pretend the law of the land actually means something when it is expedient to do so. Don’t let them forget it. If this talking point is good enough for Obamacare it’s good enough for rights that are actually in the constitution. Stop giving up when new laws are put in place to restrict constitutional rights. Speak up and make the point heard. But since “law of the land” is used ad nauseam for Obamacare it is now legitimate parlance for real constitutional rights. If they ignore this point when you bring it up they are giving you the right to ignore the “law of the land” when you disagree with it too. It’s one thing when Joe schmo progressives do that, but entirely different when a legislator or other officer of the government does this.
