Obama Campaign Hints at New Bill of Rights

Yesterday an audio tape surfaced from 2001 in which Barack Obama stated his contempt for the U.S. Constitution because of it's lack of requiring the federal government and state governments to do things on your behalf. Today we found out what those things are.
U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D. Toledo) whipped the crowd up before Mr. Obama took the stage yesterday telling them that America needed a Second Bill of Rights guaranteeing all Americans a job, health care, homes, an education, and a fair playing field for business and farmers.

Obama believes the Warren court wasn't radical enough because it wasn't able to circumvent the Constitution. He believes in bringing about redistributive change and spreading the wealth. His campaign has used intimidation and character assassination to keep people from asking tough questions of their candidate. They've lied about campaign finance, even resorting to fraud to raise money. And now they are advocating a new bill of rights in which the federal government provides us a job, home, healthcare, and "education"...

Will the American people continue to cheer Obama's name as he rings in a Brave New World?

Interesting comment about making it a right to a job. How would that dovetail with democrats support of welfare and spreading the wealth? Democrats seemed to be against forcing people on public assistance to work for their handouts. So if you guarantee every American a job, would that mean everyone has to take a job? Or could people still collect a check without working.

As far as the second bill of rights, Marcy and company can knock themselves out and add as many new rights or amendments as they wish, so long as they follow constitutional procedure. The last time I checked, that meant 2/3 of the House and Senate approving the amendment and 3/4 of the state legislatures approving it. If they can pull this off then add as many rights as you wish.
