In “Paper Worship“, Nathan Damigo discusses the ‘procedural suicide’ of Constitutional Conservatives (or what I call ‘Checklist Conservatism’) like Ted Cruz and his supporter Glenn Beck:
I am talking about the Constitution. You know, that quaint document that has been used by the Supreme Court to uphold and justify every major social policy that conservatives are at odds with, from the legalization of abortion to gay marriage. The only explanation for such fidelity towards its presently compromised existence is religious fanaticism, as displayed by creeps like Glenn Beck who once told an audience that the Constitution “came from God” and was a “sacred scripture.”
Respect for the Constitution was once and is today a unique phenomenon created by the collective expression of elite diaspora Europeans on the North American continent. As it currently stands, this primitive article of antiquity will not solve the problems we face in the 21st century. In The Current Year, the Constitution has ceased to be a vehicle for progress and has instead devolved into a major obstacle to our future.
