One aggravating attribute of liberals today is that they dismiss, as too fussy and old-fashioned, conservatives' traditional interpretations of American history, our nation's exquisite exceptionalism, and, when you get right down to it, the wholesome value of the 'three Rs.'
For instance, who but pompous liberals in striped pants would argue with Herman Cain's reading of the U.S. Constitution -- something once nobly taught to eagerly patriotic schoolchildren, yet, these days, honored only by old-school conservatives?
I quote Herman:
We don’t need to rewrite the Constitution of the United States of America, we need to reread the Constitution and enforce the Constitution.... [F]or the benefit of those who 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."
You know, those ideals that we live by, we believe in, your parents believed in, they instilled in you.... [D]on’t stop there, keep reading. Cause that’s when it says "when any form of government becomes destructive of those ideals [or, "of these ends"], it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it." We’ve got some altering and some abolishing to do!
OK, OK, you're way ahead of me. Both hallowed phrases are from the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution. Still, we really should listen to what conservative morons like Herman Cain have to say, since, unlike liberals, they're so splendidly -- nay, spiritually -- informed about true Americanism.
