I am an old fart and a Libertarian.

It is apparent to me that our President hates the Constitution, especially the 1st and 2nd Amendments.

Yes. American leftists hate the concept of negative liberty because it flies in the face of their ideological goals. The Bill or Rights is a barrier to a lot of their desired legislation.

These are people who want the power of European Parliaments. You can give Obama credit for being open about his beliefs. You didn't get that from the progressives (Clintons). The good news is that with any luck the hard push left will make the pendulum swing back just as hard.

I sit around having nightmares about President Sanders and another AWB, plus dead economy, and oppressive centrist government.

Joy of joys.

Removed for rule 6:

[Temp. Trial Rule] All politics posts must go into the stickied politics megathread, which is refreshed on the 1st and 15th of every month. If something big is happening (eg. the M855 ban), the moderators will create a specific megathread for that event at their discretion.

Could you post this as a comment in our political megathread instead? It's a new thing we're trying out for at least this month. We're trying to keep all the political posts in one spot. Thanks!

Oh, just a word of advice, the current thread dies at midnight EST and is getting replaced with another sticky, so you may want to wait until after the new thread is up before you post there. You'll be able to find it right at the top of the sub where the current one is now.
