    Default Obama supporters really think the Constitution is about socialism

    I thought that it was that few actually read the Constitution but it seems they have read it and interpret it as a socialist document.

    I know that this is at Yahoo Answers and the intellectual level is really low but these are the people that vote.

    Thus the horrors of a "living document".
    "It's a Free Country."
    "They hate us for our Freedoms."
    "The troops are protecting your Freedom."

    Then, it's a good thing that our Founders did not design it as such.
    I have many friends in the libertarian movement who look down on those of us who get involved in political activity,

    I heard the Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, talk like a socialist. I couldn't understand how he could say he's pro-constitution, yet interpret the constitution that way. Then I heard him talk about the "general welfare" of the U.S.

    Here's a copy of the "Preamble," from the U.S. Constitution, which is what I guess he was focusing on:

    "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

    General Welfare means the enumerated institutions of government.


    Here is the Preamble to the Bill of Rights:
    THE Conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution.
