Gawker reports that Cliven Bundy has now decided he’s going to teach the American people about their own history and the meaning of the Constitution. That might be slightly easier if he wasn’t a moron, but he isn’t gonna let that stop him. He’s got a series of videos on Youtube (but password protected). Here are some of the particularly stupid claims he makes on them:
…I’m free to tell the world what I think and I will. When we get to spiritual things, I have people ask me, “Well, how do you know the Constitution’s an inspired document?”
How I know that is I know that those men that were on that committee that created the Constitution, they were God-fearing men and God-loving men and they did bow their head and get on their knees in the morning before they went to these sessions, and they did gain some inspiration. And when they went and created this document, that inspiration was included in these documents. That’s how come it’s an inspired document.
John Adams clearly stated otherwise, as I’ve quoted many times. And in fact, when Ben Franklin suggested that they pray during a very contentious debate during the constitutional convention, the motion was tabled and not taken up. But you know what they did a lot of? Drinking. At a single party during the convention, the 55 men in attendance drank “54 bottles of Madeira, 60 bottles of claret, eight of whiskey, 22 of porter, eight of hard cider, 12 of beer, and seven bowls of alcoholic punch.”
So where we are here today at this time is we’re finding out that our government is become a central government. One similar to the one that our founding fathers fought at the revolutionary war. They’re very similar.
We have a central government with unlimited power. A central government that wants to dictate to us and wants to start telling us what to think and how to live. What religion. And you know what religion we can’t.
They become, our government is become just sort of the opposite what our founding fathers wanted they created three branches of government. Our executive… uh… uh, our legislature, and… our… adjudical.
Oh yes, the famous “adjudical” branch of government.
We go back over 400 years ago and our forefathers were pilgrims and they had come from other countries. And why would they risk their life, and you know, back then, transportation was in a sailboat. They figured wasn’t very far out there, the ocean was flat out and would fall off, that was how much education, how much we knew about the ocean…
Uh, no. They knew the earth was round, not flat. It was known for hundreds of years prior to that. They weren’t nearly as ignorant as you are.
They had a central government which was Europe, with the strongest army in the world, and they ruled with unlimited power…
Yeah, that famous central government of Europe that we defeated in the Revolutionary War. And again in World War I and II. This guy is a genius.
The individual is the power here. We didn’t have the state government, we didn’t have the national government, those things didn’t exist, they had the thirteen colonies, but we the people formed a constitution. And so one thing we didn’t want was a central government. We didn’t want a big central government, we didn’t want a big state government, we was even leery about having even a local government. So one thing we didn’t create is a big central government. And that’s sorta what we have now is a big central government. And we the people didn’t create that.
Hey guess what you would have learned if you’d taken an actual history class? That the entire point of the Constitutional Convention was to replace the Articles of Confederation because the federal government under those articles was too powerless to be effective.
All of our government problems can be solved by just following the Constitution of the United States. It’s that great a document.
And not only that, all of the problems of this world, other countries, and their domestic and their religious and their government problems and their battles between each other and all of that, can be really solved by following our Constitution.
Our Constitution is based on ten things, and it’s based on the Ten Commandments, most everything that was done in the Constitution follows that law, which would be our founding fathers’ law, the Ten Commandments. And when we vary from that, then our Constitution becomes sort of worthless. And we as a nation have varied a long ways in our moral standards as far as upholding and sustaining not only the Ten Commandments but upholding and sustaining our Constitution.
Funny, I can’t find any mention of the Ten Commandments anywhere in the Constitution. In fact, at least 7 of them would be blatantly unconstitutional if they were passed into law. This is what happens when you replace thinking with the memorizing of ignorant talking points, you end up sounding like an idiot. Or in this case, being an idiot.
