More Fun With Ron Paul

Drew's tasted blood, and he likes it:

"Under the United States Constitution, there are only three federal crimes: piracy, treason, and counterfeiting. All other criminal matters are left to the individual states. Any federal legislation dealing with criminal matters not related to these three issues usurps state authority over criminal law and takes a step toward turning the states into mere administrative units of the federal government." http://www.house.gov/paul/tst/tst2007/tst050707.htm

Talk about not placating! This guy is so hardcore he's more original than the guys who wrote the Judiciary Act of 1789 (many of whom were Founding Fathers) and which was signed by George Washington).

Not hardcore. Just an idiot crank.

An originalist looks back at how the Founders originally conceived the words of the Constitution in order to resolve ambiguities. An idiot literalist, on the other hand, looks only at the words of the Constitution, and ignores what the Framers actually meant, because what they meant cannot undermine the Clear Import of those Holy Words.

And if the First Congress passed legislation making a whole raft of things federal crimes (including uniquely federal ones, like interfering with a federal officer), what do they know? Ron Paul knows what their words mean better than they do. They completely misinterpreted the document they had drafted, immediately, before the ink on it was even dry.

Now it falls to Ron Paul -- the only man in America who can save us -- to clean up the mess left behind by Jefferson, Washington, Madison, Hamilton, Adams, and all the other socialists and fascists.

As Justice Marshall wrote like six hundred times in one opinion, "It is a Constitution we are propounding." A Constitution. Not hyperprecisely worded legislation. A Constitution. Broad strokes, simple language. (PS: Justice Marshall was a Nazi.)
