We The People ... a beautiful sentiment, isn’t it? It was pure genius to use such simple words to launch such a powerful document. It took just three little words – written, by the way, in very large letters – to summarize the entire purpose for writing the document in the first place. Of course, I’m talking about the Constitution. It’s an amazing document.
Ever read it?
It’s truly amazing what you can learn when you do read the Constitution. For instance, did you know that the Constitution explicitly states – and I quote – “All forms of psychological and physical torture and inhumane treatment shall be prohibited. Any confession coerced by force, threat, or torture shall not be relied on.”
So why does our government condone torture and admit coerced testimony in its prosecution of enemy combatants? Haven’t they read the Constitution?
The Constitution also explicitly prohibits wiretapping without a warrant. Yes, it does. It really does.
The Constitution states – and I quote again – “The freedom of communication, and mail, telegraphic, electronic, and telephonic correspondence, and other correspondence shall be guaranteed and may not be monitored, wiretapped or disclosed except for legal and security necessity and by a judicial decision.”
