SUNSTEIN: OBAMA WANTS ‘SECOND BILL OF RIGHTS’

by Tony Lee, Breitbart:

Mere hours after Breitbart News published an excerpt from an interview with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) in which he speculated that President Barack Obama would “prefer a different kind of constitution,” one with a Bill of Rights based on the South African model, former Obama administration regulatory czar Cass Sunstein published an op-ed making a similar argument: that the president wants a “second Bill of Rights” alongside the existing one.

Sunstein located the source of Obama’s inspiration in Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 1944 State of the Union address, rather than the South African constitution–though the American academics whose writings inspired South Africa’s ambitious Bill of Rights could well have taken Roosevelt’s proposals as their foundation.

Roosevelt’s Second Bill of Rights–not a list of constitutional amendments, but policy goals–was as follows:

In our day these economic truths have become accepted as self-evident. We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established for all regardless of station, race, or creed.

    If they want their own bill of rights, then go to Africa where ‘they’ belong, and do it. We are quite happy with how the Country was working prior to you jokers came to power. I will absolutely join the revolution when it happens…notice I said, ‘when,’ not if. This is simply ludicrous! I say it can’t happen soon enough. Damn a**holes.

    You have the right to sing the blues, you have a right to cable television, oh wait. I think that was from a “police academy” movie.
