The General Welfare
When dealing with the Liberals who willfully misuse and misinterpret the US Constitution to further their aims to replace America with a nation built upon their ideology of government mandated and controlled non-merit based equality of result it is useful to refer to what our Founding Father’s actually meant.
With respect to the two words ‘general welfare,’ I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.
– “Father of the Constitution,” James Madison
Now, in truth, the Nanny-Statists of the Left care very little for Madison or his thoughts, but Americans do. Referring back to the words, wisdom, and thoughts of the “Father of the Constitution” is always prudent when Liberals foul our Constitution by daring to cite it as an excuse for their beliefs and goals.
Keep your eyes open. Travel light but load heavy, and always put another round in the enemy after they’re down. 😉
