“10 Minutes Closer to Freedom”
I this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I talk about the bipartisan attack on the Constitution in the wake of the Orlando shooting. As I put it in a recent article, Gun-grabbers to the left of me, voyeurs on the right.
People often complain about partisan bickering and gridlock. But we find plenty of bipartisan agreement when it comes to violating the limits on government power written into the Constitution.
Sure, the Democrats and Republicans pick different parts of the Constitution to shred, but they walk in lock-step agreement on the general principle that the Constitution should not stand in the way of achieving policy goals.
We’ve witnessed this on full display in the wake of the tragic Orlando shooting. Republicans and Democrats have tripped all over themselves, and each other, to exploit the tragedy and push their political agendas forward. Democrats are giddy about the prospect of more gun control and Republicans have found the perfect excuse to expand the surveillance state. In the meantime, the Second, Fourth and Fifth Amendments get trampled underfoot.
In this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I talk about it.
