More Political Malpractice
In Congressman Phil Hare's own words, when it comes to ObamaKare “I don’t worry about the Constitution...":
Democratic Congressman Phil Hare represents Illinois's 17th congressional district. He took office in January 2007 and at that point took the following oath:
"I, (name of Member), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."Obviously, Hare doesn't give a hoot about the oath he took. Did he have his fingers crossed behind his back, or what?
Quoting now my fellow blogger Epa over at Infidel Bloggers Alliance:
This off hand comment is not some GOOF. This is the offhand, unguarded REAL OPERATING FEELING OF RIGHTNESS AND ENTITLEMENT these utter morons work with, and are elected to do.In my view, now that Hare has decided to disregard the Constitution, he should be drummed out of office and into court for oath breaking and, possibly, treason. Now.
This guy is not from some downtown, left wing district ...this is farm country and FOLKS WILL DRIVE THIS MORON OUT,,,
In the meantime, as we await the November 2010 elections, each and all the member of Congress as well as the White House need this reminder drummed into their thick skulls:
"Constitutions of civil government are not to be framed upon a calculation of existing exigencies, but upon a combination of these with the probable exigencies of ages, according to the natural and tried course of human affairs. Nothing, therefore, can be more fallacious than to infer the extent of any power, proper to be lodged in the national government, from an estimate of its immediate necessities." --Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 34
