When even fairly conservative voters are asking this question of Senator Brownback and his war on porn and loving gay couples:
Isn’t there something else, you know, going on in the world? Like a war on terror?
you know that his presidential campaign is pure self-aggrandizement.
And it’s not that Brownback never heard of the 10th amendment, he just doesn’t like it. Apparently all of the first doesn’t pass muster either, and I bet he has serious qualms about the 9th, 4th, 5th and 6th. I wonder how he feels about the 8th, too.
A while back, Kevin Drum listed all of the Constitutional amendments submitted in the last year. The Constitution isn’t a rough draft, it doesn’t need 5 different line item vetoes, etc.
Take Jesse Jackson, Jr. out of the picture, and Republicans are vastly more likely to try to scribble all over our founding document. Something to consider.
