Was chuckling when I heard about the recent presidential campaign kickoff event in which Herman Cain, one of my recent Saturday Sellout profiles, made an embarrassing gaffe.
While lecturing people to 're-read' the constitution, he made this statement:
We don’t need to rewrite the Constitution of the United States of America, we need to reread the Constitution and enforce the Constitution,” Cain said. “And I know that there are some people that are not going to do that, so for the benefit of those that are not going to read it because they don’t want us to go by the Constitution, there’s a little section in there that talks about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
“Because that’s when it says when any form of government becomes destructive of those ideals, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.”
Um dude, 'the life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness' statement is part of the Declaration of Independence. So is “when any form of government becomes destructive of those ideals, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it.”
You conservapeeps are so busy trying to rewrite and misinterpret the Constitution to fit your ideological point of view and selfish gain you not only haven't been reading it, you don't know the meaning of any amendments other than the 2nd and 10th, and you're loud and wrong on those, too.
Herman Cain, take your own advice and re-read the Constitution. Start with the 13th 14th and 15th Amendments, take copious notes and work your way around to the other 24 as well.
