Site Meter Ogre's Politics & Views: Jefferson on the Constitution
“They are not to do anything they please to provide for the general welfare, but only to lay taxes for that purpose. To consider the latter phrase not as describing the purpose of the first, but as giving a distinct and independent power to do any act they please which may be good for the Union, would render all the preceding and subsequent enumerations of power completely useless.” —Thomas Jefferson
Well I guess that's pretty clear when applied to today, isn't it? The Constitution is completely, and utterly useless. I guess we still pretend that it applies so that people will think there's law and order in America today. Here's a clue: there isn't. The current legal system is about people deciding to punish people they don't like and to raise cash to spend on the legal system.

Once again, R.I.P. America.
