John Garon’s liberal rant against the Tea Party and the GOP reminds me of something Ronald Reagan said, which was basically that liberals weren’t ignorant, it was just that they knew so much that wasn’t so.
Mr. Garon calls the Tea Party undemocratic because of the government shutdown. Looking back only as far as the 70s, Mr. Garon must have thought that Tip O’Neill and the Democrats were evil incarnate for the 12 shutdowns that happened during that Democrat speaker’s reign.
Now that we are past Mr. Garon’s ignorance of history, let’s focus on his ignorance of the Constitution. Despite the rant of unconstitutionality that Mr. Garon puts out, even Democrats didn’t try to make the false argument that the shutdown was unconstitutional. Mr. Garon asks, where in the Constitution does it say that you don’t have to submit to a law you don’t like? Really, Mr. Garon? Why don’t you send that line to Mr. Obama? He tells the entire government to ignore laws he doesn’t like.
Take immigration, for example, where he told the ICE people not to enforce sections of the immigration law. And how about Obamacare, where he grants exemptions and changes effective dates, like the employer mandate, with the stroke of a pen like a dictator. It doesn’t say in the law that he can do that, he just does.
So, Mr. Garon, if you want to talk about adhering to the Constitution, try looking in your own backyard.
