133 Words or Less: I Love the Constitution Until I Don’t

This quote from a Facebook comment sums up everything wrong with the “conservative” movement in America.

I’m all for state’s rights, but sometimes a federal rule makes sense! Redacted-Constitution

News flash: you aren’t really “all for state’s rights.”

This particular individual wants the federal government to force every state to recognize every other state’s conceal-carry permit. But we find self-proclaimed conservatives expressing a similar attitude relating to a host of issues.

“If it’s a really good idea, have the feds implement it across the good ol’ USA!”

Constitutional limits on federal power fly out the window when these champions of “limited government” find a policy they want implemented.

But if the Constitution means nothing, and you shove it aside when it stands in the way of achieving your policy preference, it literally means nothing.
