Constitutional Topic: The Bill of Rights:

The United States Constitution thought of as an outdated 'niche' subject?


The Center for American Progress is a Progressive organization. Their "2010 Recommendation Package" recently submitted to the Obama administration includes a section of niche areas in education that could actually be cut. Thus 'Niche' programs on OUTDATED TOPICS such as 'The United States Constitution' and 'American History' were put on Congress' budgetary chopping block.

So if you have impressionable minds you are wards of, I highly recommend you consider becoming proactive. Teach them The Constitution and Bill or Rights when you crack open that non-revisionist American History Book you have sitting somewhere in the recesses of your personal library shelf.

The Democratically held Congressional Majority we currently have installed, have already burdened our youth with unsustainable future debt even before they became of age to vote or possibly had been born.  At the least, make available to our young people the ability to decide where they constitutionally stand on issues for themselves.  Perhaps they will find wisdom evading the adults of today.

 

Who are you ... really:

The Libertarian Party is a growing minor U.S. political party founded in 1971 advocating personal liberty, the free market, free trade, and non-interventionism as inalienable rights regardless of age, color or creed of the individual, giving wide girth to personal rights.  They don't want government telling you what to do; they don't want ANYONE telling you what to do.

Basically, Libertarians want The Constitution restored to its purest form as written by our Founding Fathers, changing from its widest interpretation as it is now.  They do not believe it should be a living, breathing, ever evolving document.

  • For living breathing examples, Congressman Dr. Ron Paul of Texas is a strict Libertarian as well as investigative journalist John Stossel.  But as in any political party there is a left, right & center. Centre is usually refered to as moderate.
The Democratic Party is a major U.S. political party, one of the two major political parties in the United States, and formed after a split in the former Democratic-Republican Party under Andrew Jackson in 1828.
An Andrew Jackson July 10, 1832 quote: "It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government to their selfish purpose."
Generally they are for ever bigger expanding government with many ubiquitous social programs requiring a large tax base to support them.
The Democratic Party uses The Constitution as a malleable document. 

The Republican Party was founded in founded in 1854-1856 to oppose the extension of slavery, and stand for small government, low taxes, fiscal responsibility, adherence to the Constitution, defense of American sovereignty, and personal responsibility.  It uses The Constitution as a malleable document, but respects its past-to-present relevancy.

 

  • Progressives are a left-wing-of-center faction in the Democratic & Republican Parties.  Believing The Constitution does not serve the government well, deems it an irrelevant document.  
  • Conservatism is a right-wing-of-center political philosophy based on a tendency to support gradual rather than abrupt change and to preserve the status quo. It is found in both major political parties and the growing minority Libertarian Party.
  • Liberalism has been co-opted into the Progressive movement, warping its true meaning, but liberalism was a political theory stressing individualism: a political ideology with its beginnings in western Europe that rejects authoritarian government and defends freedom of speech, association, and religion, and the right to own property, and is currently incorperated into the Libertarian Party’s platform.
