“The Warren court wasn’t that radical because it didn’t break free of the constraints that the founding fathers put in the Constitution. It is a charter of negative liabilities. It outlines what the government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the government must do for you.” Barack Obama, radio interview Chicago 2001.

On every question of construction, let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable on in which it was passed.” Thomas Jefferson.
The founders of this country put the constraints on government into the Constitution because they knew first hand that the heavy hand of government could take their liberties away. They knew that if the government was big enough to give you everything you wanted, it was big enough to take everything away.
Obama has nothing original, his second bill of rights was introduced by Franklin Roosevelt in the 30s. His spreading of the wealth is the same as Johnson’s failed Great Society.
