    Oh, he'd never advocate that. He'd hate having to live under Sharia law. He just wants a more authoritarian government, one that will reward people like him for being, well, people like him.

    What part?

    The only serious talk of changing the Constitution comes from Republicans.

    Fareed Zakaria suggests Constitutional changes on NPR
    I suggest he change his name before he makes stupid statements like this.

    Obama's expansion of regulatory activities to areas that deliberately violate congressional intent (such as the regulation of CO2 as a pollutant by the EPA), violates article I of the Constitution, which limits the lawmaking powers to congress. His repeated refusal to comply with congressional oversight committees is also a blatant disregard for Article I. Article II compels the president to see that the laws are faithfully executed. His abrogation of immigration law and harrassment of those states that have taken up the slack is a clear violation of this obligation, as is his disregard for the Voting Rights Act as applied to the New Black Panther Party. Obama has sought to reintroduce the "Fairness Doctrine", which is in direct conflict with the First Amendment. He has repeatedly claimed that some news outlets, such as Fox, do not meet the standard for being actual news outlets, which indicates a desire to muzzle those parts of the press that do not comply with his agenda. His use of the White House website to gather criticisms of his administration smacks of the creation of an enemies list and further indicates a plan to regulate speech. He has sought to implement "Card Check", which imposes union rule without a free election by secret ballot. Fast and Furious was a deliberate attempt to manufacture a crisis that could be used to justify further gun control, in violation of the Second Amendment. Obamacare violates the Fourth Amendment guarantees against unreasonable searches (your medical records are part of the papers that the amendment secures), the Fifth Amendment (takings), Sixth and Seventh Amendments (due process), Ninth Amendment (rights retained by the people) and Tenth Amendment (limits federal powers to delegated rights)...

    How many examples do you need?

    This is true. Democrats don't feel the need to change the Constitution, they just interpret it in ways that allow them to do what they want.

    Well he is already on record saying that "the U.S. has suffered from a fundamentally flawed Constitution that does not mandate or allow for redistribution of wealth."

    He's also on record regarding his disdain for the Constitution because it doesn't give the federal government enough power to do things to you as opposed to what the federal government can't do to you.

    Guys,
    AD doesn't really want proof of the Marxist's disdain for and desire to wipe his @$$ with our Constitution. He merely desires to continue to publicly fellate and kiss the Butt of his chosen god.
    Facts are merely troublesome little speed bumps in his world, a nuisance to be ignored.
