There's little that's intelligent or informed about Time magazine editor Richard Stengel's article "One Document, Under Siege" (June 23, 2011). It contains many grossly ignorant statements about our Constitution. If I believed in conspiracies, I'd say Stengel's article is part of a leftist agenda to undermine respect for the founding values of our nation.

Is constitutionalism akin to blind faith? Some statists certainly think so, as they have called the position “constitution-worship.” In light of this, what should we call those who lack that “faith”? Given that they don’t believe in the Constitution, and that the document is the supreme law of the land, can it be said that they don’t believe in law? Are these people, who are often atheists, also “alegalists”?

Casey Anthony, the young woman arrested and tried for having murdered her three-year-old daughter, has just been acquitted of the most serious charges that had been leveled against her. Scores of people who had been following this case closely from the beginning are outraged over the verdict. Like O.J. Simpson 16 years earlier, Anthony, they swear, just got away with murder.

If you are a conservative, a Christian, a libertarian or just a concerned parent and have children in the public schools, you need to attend a homeschool convention. You have to know that there is a wonderful alternative to the government school where children are being deliberately dumbed down in order to serve an increasingly perverse authoritarian state. And when you come away from that convention you’ll know why your child deserves something better than public-school politically correct indoctrination.

The most potent “reality check,” especially among industrialized nations like ours, is the one discovered by accident. It’s the one that can’t be scripted, the one that makes a person sit up and say “Whoa!!”
