  Only A Liberal could say and believe that!  Or a Romper Room kid.

Only a blind man or a fool could deny it.  The Constitution was pretty much killed by FDR.  Look at the government and try to HONESTLY say otherwise.

I will play your game.  Only a blind liberal or a fool could say that the Constitutions is dead.  You Lib's have been trying for years to kill It be HONEST about it.

Actually, I am for punishing violating the Constitution with death...but no, it is pretty much dead.  The Supreme Court has ruled that it does not mean what it says.  From Miller to Kelo to Obamacare, they openly ignore it.

I understand your frustration but I don't think the Constitution is dead. I think there is a well organized, well funded group of people in our public sector working hard to subvert the law of the land and there is currently no effective opposition to that group of people. Look at what happened with Kim Davis.

Some people have made this about the First Amendment and religious freedom, so many in this thread that it was moved to the religion forum. I'm not saying they're wrong and I'm not trying to minimize the beliefs of others but arguing religious freedom in this case is a dead end. What happens if the religious freedom argument is accepted and honored? Basically nothing, the feds still get away with a non-sensical, contradictory ruling and their overreach is still in place because the applications will still be signed by someone in the clerks office. The fact that some clerks in Kentucky even bothered to appeal to their Governor, Brashear, to help them shows an astounding level of political naivety.

I'd love to see the feds run according to the law again but in my opinion there needs to be a cohesive, well thought out strategy on how to fight overreach by the feds and there doesn't appear to be right now.
