The main value of the Constitution, in fact the only value of it, is its use in controlling the US government.

It has no other purpose.

Since that isn't working and cannot be made to work, the Constitution has no value, certainly not a religious or intrinsic value.

The problem here is that the Tea Party'ers depicted in the Newsweek article are still confusing the US government as being America.

The US government has never been, isn't now, and will never be America. It is merely a government which can be either altered or abolished by Americans.

We secessionists are abolishing it, for ourselves, others may wish to continue with it, as is their want.

That's not what I'd recommend.

The only possible use I could have for News Weak, is to take a nice, long, wet, odiferous shit on it, and cram the result into it's editors' face.

If I may expound on the valuable observations put forward by the regular poster and learned scholar, Pat H.

America is the culture, heritage and customs, the land and who we are as a people, our values.

The government is the corporate D.C. beast we have lost all control over, if we ever had any. It is an entity that perpetuates its own interests and not the interests of the people. There is no end to its lust for power, its thirst for control over all aspects of our lives. It has demonstrated this lust thorough its monopoly of force.

The importance of this distinction is to be found in where we go from here. Are we to live as slaves to this monstrous thing that feels an entitlement to our productive labors or do we say no more?

Government is like a very large and vicious dog that has never been trained and fails to recognize the hierarchy of who the master is. This dog is now off the leash and threatening to maul us all and devour our children. It is too late for training the beast. What options are available other than to slay the beast?

The NewSpeak piece is rank propaganda as foul as anything ever produced by the Nazis, Stalinists, or Chicoms.

And calling Cass Sunstein a centrist is positively ridiculous!

Newsweek plays the race card, referring to the America-hating Socialist-in-Chief's merely being "an urban black man with a Muslim name" as the reason we "forces of orthodoxy" oppose him.
So Christine O'Donnell and Sarah Palin, under pressure, couldn't name a bad Supreme Court ruling and a Founder respectively. Where was Newsweek when Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, urging renewal of the ban on semi-autos, didn't know a barrel shroud heat shield from a folding stock? "That shoulder thing that goes up." My 12-year-old granddaughter is more articulate.
My local paper did not endorse anti-gun socialist Rep. Bobby Scott, but it DID commend him on "his ethics and hard work."
freerepublic.com calls it their Media Dinosaur Death Watch.
Suicide Watch is more like it.
