  •  Yeah, they defend the Constitution, (13+ / 0-)

    they're strict obstructionists. They claim to revere The Founders too, even though it was the Gubmint that the Founders founded.

    The free market is not the solution, the free market is the problem.

    •  Just like the Bible (12+ / 0-)

      They pick parts of the Constitution they like:
      2nd ammendment - hell ya!
      Promote the general welfare... uhh... wha?

      Freedom isn't free. That's why we pay taxes.

      Unreconstructed Rebel
      (Major Innes Randolph)

      Oh, I'm a good old Rebel,
      Now that's just what I am;
      For this "fair land of Freedom"
      I do not care a damn.
      I'm glad I fit against it-
      I only wish we'd won.
      And I don't want no pardon
      For anything I've done.

      I hates the Constitution,
      This great Republic too;
      I hates the Freedmen's Buro,
      In uniforms of blue.
      I hates the nasty eagle,
      With all his brag and fuss;
      But the lyin', thievin' Yankees
      I hates' em wuss and wuss.

      We got three hundred thousand
      Befo' they conquered us.
      They died of Southern fever
      And Southern steel and shot;
      And I wish it was three million
      Instead of what we got.
      I can't take up my musket
      And fight' em now no mo',
      But I ain't a-goin'to love' em,
      Now that is sartin sho';
      And I don't want no pardon
      For what I was and am;
      And I won't be reconstructed,
      And I do not give a damn.

      originally printed in Collier's Weekly in 1914

      "Woe to those who make unjust laws,
    to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights
    and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, 
making widows their prey
    and robbing the fatherless."
