New York Times: Throw Off Bondage of ‘Evil’ Constitution

The biggest liberal newspaper in the country has printed a column from a top progressive scholar calling on the American people to ignore the Constitution with its “evil provisions,” revealing the far-left agenda for what it is and making sense of several major actions of the Obama administration.

Those who love liberty and our Constitution need to speak up and be heard. The Constitution is the cornerstone of the United States of America as a nation. It holds us together, gives us our national identity, and is the surest safeguard against an all-powerful government.

That is why every officer of federal and state government must take an oath to support and defend the Constitution before they can assume the powers of their office. Every military officer must swear to support the Constitution, including the words “against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

And every lawyer—as an officer of the courts—takes an oath to support the Constitution. I have taken such an oath ten times in my career, including one standing before the nine justices of the Supreme Court.

So did Professor Louis Michael Seidman of Georgetown, but now he evidently thinks taking such an oath was a mistake. In a New York Times column, he calls for America to free itself of “bondage” to the Constitution. Speaking of what’s wrong in the country today, he laments that “no one blames the culprit: our insistence on obedience to the Constitution, with all its archaic, idiosyncratic and downright evil provisions.”

Looking through American history, Seidman claims that “flagrant disregard of the Constitution [has] helped us to grow and prosper.” He lauds governmental systems like Great Britain that have parliamentary supremacy, where the government can vote to do absolutely anything it wants. This is precisely the form of government we rejected when we revolted against Britain and declared independence in 1776. Perhaps Seidman thinks the American Revolution was a mistake.
