Somtimes I wonder if Romney and Ryan forgot what the Constitution is about. They are supposed to defend it against enemies foreign and domestic. Are they for the Constitution or do they want to be bean-counters and enablers for the 1%?
Listen to the latest anti-social, anti-collectivism, pro-individualist rhetoric coming from both of them and the Tea Party. It is just propaganda designed to justify union bashing and trashing and create division among the voters. I think the founders were pro-collectivist understanding the importance of unity as evidenced in the preamble. The words "me" and "I" are not in it. The Republicans and faux Tea Party have been marching off the map for quite awhile now.
The preamble to the Constitution says –
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
