Where Does The Hatred Of Constitutionalism Come From?

"There is no doubt in my mind that a great conflict is near, between those of us who value liberty and constitutional protections, and those who would destroy them. This battle is unlikely to be solved with words. The anti-constitutionalist rhetoric is becoming so ruthless, so malicious, that it can only lead to a hardening of our own hearts, and an equally forceful response."

THe hatred of the Constitution is based upon that it is a set of rules which governs their behaviour and limits their power to rule absolutely.

Worse it was written and laid down before they were politicians and they cannot grasp the reality that anything was of any validity before their briliance shone forth on the political stage.

They hate the concept of a rule of laws greater than themselves.

Public schools are prisons for kids where bullies get away with anything and victims are punished, classrooms are turned into laboratories of compulsory leftist social engineering, the more kids hated it—some to the point of homicide.

Abolishing the public-education system has no downside. A few million obese, incompetent, corrupt, vicious teachers and parasitical bureaucrats will finally be fired.

In 2001, the National Center for Education Statistics reported the average SAT score for intended education majors to be 481 math and 483 verbal. Only those interested in vocational school, home economics and public affairs scored lower.

But while the SAT is considered to be a generally reliable intelligence test, the 2001 SAT is not the same SAT that many of us took prior to attending university. Those 2001 scores on the 1996 SAT, which was replaced this year by the New SAT 2005, are equivalent to pre-1996 SAT scores of 451 math and 403 verbal. In case any education majors are reading this, 451 plus 403 equals a cumulative score of 854.

Examining an SAT-to-IQ conversion chart calculated from Mensa entrance criteria, a combined 854 indicates that the average IQ of those pursuing an education major is 91, nine points lower than the average IQ of 100. In other words, those who can't read teach whole language.

The immortal PJ O’Rourke once declared: “Anybody who doesn’t know what’s wrong with America’s educational system never screwed an el-ed major.”

The Iron Curtain started with a single strand of barbed wire . Ms. Feinstein is busy spinning thousands of miles of wire to separate us from our 2nd amendment rights . It's called the Bill of Rights not the Bill of Privileges.

I'm rather doubtful about constitutions. It's not so much that I hate them, but that I don't think they do what they are advertised to do: limit governments. Ours didn't even limit government back in the 19th Century when Spooner wrote.

In fact I am very doubtful about a whole lot of things like the notion of social contracts (contracts that apply even if you don't sign on to them). Just more excuses for tyranny, seems to me.

However I think Constitutionalists and anarchists CAN work together. Especially if Constitutionalists are willing to write into their constitution that anarchists will be left alone. That would definitely get me more favorable to the idea. We just don't care to be imposed on. I know, that's just being unreasonable!

As I mentioned before, I wrote this article:
