2010 Liberal Jackass Quotes of the Year - #20

Rep. John Yarmuth (D - Kentucky)

"[The Constitution] really doesn't prohibit the government from doing virtually anything - the federal government...I am not sure there is anything under current interpretation of the Commerce Clause that the government couldn't do."

I used to be surprised to hear Democrats say stuff like this, but it's becoming so regular I'm ceasing to be shocked at all...Not that I'm any less disgusted.

My favorite part is the statement about "current interpretation" ; which is at least a little truthful, because there's no way the Founding Fathers or our leaders in the 19th Century and most of the 20th looked at the Constitution in such a way...Only modern-day Liberals do.

"The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government." - Patrick Henry

The scary thing is the way Democrats use their "interpretation" of the Constitution to dictate to and rule the people.

"Government is not reason; it is not eloquence.  It is force.  And force, like fire, is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." - George Washington

There should be no doubt who Rep. Yarmuth plans on being the master (government) and the servant (the people).
