Trying to find Herman Cain? No problem. Every morning, he holds forth in the Madison booth at Sandy’s Documents And Waffles:
Can presidents sign constitutional amendments? No. Can they demand a 2/3 vote to upend tax legislation? No. Can they overturn Supreme Court decisions? No. Why? Because these things are unconstitutional.
You can go on and on and lecture us, Herman. You can tell us how appalling it is we haven’t bothered to read the Constitution. You can point right at us and tell all your friends we’re the least patriotic dunderheads you’ve seen in your life.
But when you mock us with “Life, Liberty and Happiness,” or its foundational kin, this:
“. . whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it . . “
. . you’re not just talking traditional American ideals. You’re quoting the Declaration of Independence.
