The only thing politicians hate more than the Constitution are American citizens who have read it.
But how do they keep getting away with violating our nation’s founding documents?
In this episode of Making the Argument, Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas exposes how the Left abuses and deliberately misreads the Constitution to expand their own power.
The Democrats’ distain for the Constitution is only matched by their tendency to deliberately misinterpret it to suit their own ends.
With the supreme law of the land more often than not standing in the way of much of the Left’s political agenda, it isn’t surprising to see politicians in Congress routinely try to rewrite, re-interpret, and renege on their oaths to uphold the Constitution.
But how exactly do politicians get away with deliberately misinterpreting the Constitution to expand their own power?
From the excessive overinterpretation of the General Welfare Clause as a blank check to expand government into every aspect of the American people’s lives, to attempts from both parties to use the Interstate Commerce Clause to ban anything they wish, to Democrats’ attempts to use the Necessary and Proper Clause to justify any new government agency or tax hike, it’s clear that most politicians in Washington have intentionally used a skewed reading of the Constitution to advance their own agenda.
In this episode of Making the Argument, Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas breaks down how the Constitution actually works, and what ways politicians on the Left routinely try and misread or misinterpret the Constitution to suit their own ends.
