The portents, we might say, are favorable. BUT... None of this will be enough.

Left-liberals, who disdain most of the Constitution's provisions, will fight like rabid dogs to defend the welfare state on the basis of the "general welfare" clause. They'll also demand that abortion "rights" not be touched, as they're protected by a Supreme Court decision. Conservatives, who mainly favor limiting the federal government to its Constitutional preserve, will defend the Air Force and the War on Drugs with equal ferocity. If we take the Constitution as indivisible and not dismiss the parts we dislike, then all four of the above-cited activities of the federal government are out-of-bounds. -- Francis W. Porretto - Eternity Road
