Join the Discussion at Gay Patriot: On "Equality" and the United States Constitution

Collectivism in America: United we Progress toward
a "more perfect union" Image: Obama post election, 2008


by the Left Coast Rebel

I'll never forget the first time I saw one of the post election Barack Hussein Obama stickers (above) here in southern California, Obama's "more perfect union" Orwellian, Yes we Did campaign statement.

It was a glaring example of just how many in our society are duped in the promise of statism and collectivism through clever marketing and perhaps lack of a moral/philosophical compass.

Progressive-collectivists apply subjective misnomers such as a 'more perfect union' (applied by the barrel of a gun, redistribution), 'fairness' (fair, according to whom) and 'equality' ( vs. liberty) to the Constitution where they simply do not exist.

Writing at GayPatriot, LCR friend B. Daniel Blatt points this out:

In his latest email, the head of the gay affiliate of the California Democratic Party “Equality California” tells us about “the U. S. Constitution’s promise of equality for all”. Funny, I’ve read the U.S. Constitution more times than I can count and have never found that promise*. The framers did indicate that the charter’s purpose includes securing “the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”.

Save for the Fourteenth Amendment when the word, “equal,” appears, it only refers to legislative voting. And that Amendment specifies that “No State shall make or enforce any law” which denies “to any person within its jurisdiction.” Not sure how you get from that to a “promise of equality.”

Go jump in the comment thread of his article, he's getting attacked for pointing this out by the progressive gay lobby and even called the 'Uncle Tom' equivalent for a gay conservative.

Back him up!
