The Federal Government could use a few lessons from the Chicago Machine….

The federal government needs to take a seminar from the Chicago Machine.  They are after all, the ones who designed, authored, and conceived of the diabolical Article 1, Section 22, of the Illinois Constitution which states, “Subject only to the police power the right of the individual citizen to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” 

A classic attorney trick in the court room is to ask a series of several questions that are obviously answered with “yes” then throw in a question that requires a “no.”  The witness then is droning along answering yes, yes, yes and is then tricked into answering yes to a no question.  Then the attorney will pounce on the witness’ mistake and try to impugn his character, or memory, or to cast doubt on his credibility and integrity.

In Illinois the authors of the state Constitution placed the RKBA section at number 22 unlike the founders who placed it 2nd.  At that point the general public got sucker punched ‘cuz’ they just didn’t read it that far.  If they did, by then they were just hurrying through like the guy sitting on the witness stand answering yes, yes, yes.  I mean this is the Bill of Rights, not even the Chicago Machine would screw with that, would they?  

At this point the Obamunists are determined that any church organizations such as hospitals and colleges and schools will have to include abortifacients (life terminating drugs), contraceptives, sterilization services, among other things that directly oppose the moral and religious convictions of many Catholics and protestants.  If the Obamunists would get together with the Chicago Machine they surely could have got this through in a lot more subtle manner.  After all, as far as I know, until I started fussing about the term “Subject only to the police power” nobody seemed think it was any big deal.   The Feds need to import some of our Chicago Rulers who are artists at sugar coating the poison pills.

Now, it is amazing how the Feds have managed do some pretty good tricks of their own.  I am still trying to figure out what slight of hand the Obamunists are going to use to force the People to buy health insurance.  Can you force the People to sign and enter into a contract?  Any contract signed under duress or threat is null and void on its face.  I forgot the government seems to think it can make its own rules and then change them in the middle of the game. 

I guess one smart thing that the Obamunists did is to give everyone a year to “figure out how to violate our consciences,” said Archbishop Timothy Dolan.  I suppose giving everyone time to contemplate just what the consequences are to violating federal law might encourage one to go along with the program.  Well we will see.  Although the more I think about the eternal consequences to violating God’s law. . . that might outweigh even the Obamunists and their Obamunistic plans. 

I suppose if judges can turn “shall not be infringed” into meaning “shall not be infringed very much,” they could surely turn, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise of thereof” into, “For the most part Congress shall make no law . . .”  Yeah that ought to handle it.  After all, no right is absolute.  What seems to be absolute is that the “compelling interest” of the state shall not be infringed, at all!  Thou shalt not infringe the compelling interest of the state, no matter how many fundamental rights have to be infringed. 

I guess that pretty well takes care of abridging freedom of speech and the press and peaceable assembly and petitioning the government for redress of grievances.  Shoot, while we’re at it we can certainly moderate the other rights as well; I mean after all the whole purpose of government is in the interest of maintaining public safety!  Or, is it?

I think the out-of-date and antiquated document called the Declaration of Independence in part reads this way: “we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights among those are the right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, and that to secure these rights governments are instituted among men.   Ooops, it looks like the whole reason for government is to secure Rights endowed by our Creator, not for the primary purpose of maintaining public safety.  Don’t worry; the Chicago Machine can teach the Feds how to get around it.  I got faith!
