Ron Paul: An Enigma Wrapped in a Riddle Wrapped in the Constitution

by Kris E. Benson

Yesterday, we learned that noted constitutional scholar Ron Paul accepts and cashes his Social Security check even though it is “unconstitutional.” He did not say why, exactly, Social Security is unconstitutional (although Your Wonkette suspects it has something to do with his poor grasp of a common law system), and so it remains one in a long list of items that Ron Paul thinks is unconstitutional absent any discussion of relevant jurisprudence. Of course, as we all know, ThinkProgress released a 2011 video listing all the things that Ron Paul finds unconstitutional but since then, there have been more! And there are some that ThinkProgress missed!  For example, did you know that sexual harassment is TOTALLY CONSTITUTIONAL but abortion is not? YES. It’s TRUE. So please behold an updated list of the things that would be unconstitutional in a Ron Paul presidency, as well as a list of things that are in fact Constitutional, which will allow for more substantive critical analysis.

Things that are unconstitutional:

  1. The Civil Rights Act, but ONLY because it destroyed privacy, not because Ron Paul is racist.
  2. Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, the Fed, and paper money, but we knew that already.
  3. Use of executive branch powers to create jobs for struggling Americans absent Congressional action.
  4. The federal debt ceiling limit because it leads Congress to take on functions outside its constitutionally mandated purview.
  5. The Affordable Care Act (that’s “Obamacare” in GOPspeak).
  6. Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank because they over-regulate, which is unconstitutional. Regulate women, not markets, amiright bros? Which brings us to…
  7. Roe vs Wade, except possibly for raped and sodomized virgins who can mercifully be given a “shot of estrogen” if they come to the emergency room on time, are insured, and are lucky enough to have a presiding physician who isn’t rabidly pro-life.
  8. The Federal Marriage Amendment because these things should be left up to the states.
  9. Regulation of sexual and reproductive practices on a Federal level as described in his “We the People Act.” How does this articulate with his introduction of the Sanctity of Life Act, which defines life as beginning at conception and would have outlawed hormonal birth control if passed? This, like so many things in Ron Paul’s mind, remains a mystery.
  10. Funding Family Planning (on the Federal level, of course); Paul introduced the “Freedom of Conscience Act” to protect us from this particular ill.
  11. Public school, because the federal government has no business promoting education.
  12. Federally funded loans and scholarships for college because “education is not a right.”
  13. National Parks, which should be sold to private investors, because camping is not a right either.
  14. The VA because Veterans should be served by private hospitals, which will “honor” them better.

Things that Are Constitutional

  1. Biblical law. Yes. Biblical law, which articulates nicely with
  2. Letting poor people die of being poor (video at link).
  3. The Defense of Marriage Act, and yes, DOMA is constitutional even though the Federal Marriage Amendment is unconstitutional.
  4. A patriarchal society wherein the church appoints judges to solve all of our problems.
  5. The Sanctity of Life Act, an Act introduced by Ron Paul himself, and which would have defined life as beginning at conception.
  6. Funding stem cell research using federal tax credits, even though life begins at conception.
  7. Sexual Harassment, which is probably the fault of the woman anyway.

Who can make sense of this for Your Wonkette? Anyone? Can anyone explain why DOMA is constitutional but the Federal Marriage Amendment is unconstitutional? Or perhaps why public school is unconstitutional but church-appointed judges and Patriarchal Law makes the cut? Have at it and get back to us when you have figured it out.

kingofmeh June 21, 2012 at 4:11 pm

it is impossible for a constitutional amendment to be unconstitutional, because logic. some classifications in the constitution – like requiring presidential candidates to be native-born, because discriminating against naturalized citizens almost always violates equal protection – would be unconstitutional if they were statutes. but, because one part of the constitution is not "better" than another, any properly enacted amendment to the US Constitution is, by its nature, constitutional.

DustBowlBlues June 21, 2012 at 4:44 pm

Second Amendment! That, and the free speech amendment that protects wingers right to spew hate talk. They are the only two that matter.

Get a job, hippie!

sullivanst June 21, 2012 at 5:01 pm

First amendment protects wingers' right to spew hate talk by prohibiting anyone else from speaking against it, specifically.

starfanglednut June 21, 2012 at 5:10 pm

Freedom of religion, also too. When freedom of religion means conservatives being able to force other people to live according to their distorted interpretation of the bible.

Who can make sense of this for Your Wonkette? Anyone?

Oh oh, let me try! It's because, of course.

More precisely, "because, shut up, of course"

HogeyeGrex June 21, 2012 at 4:14 pm

There's FREEDOM and TRANNY and the first is good and the second bad and when the gov't says ya gotta do something lame, like get that rusty old car that you've been throwing trash into and is now infested with rats off of your front lawn that is TRANNY but Ron Paul says you can have your rattrashcar and that is FREEDOM and you can smoke crummy weed too and now I have to get back to work at the video game store."

The federal debt ceiling limit because it leads Congress to take on functions outside its constitutionally mandated purview.

I agree that the debt ceiling is unconstitutional, because it violates Article 6, not for Paul's bullshit reason, though.

Actually, I'm beginning to question if most libertarians/conservatives have every even read Article 6. That thing's like a progressive permission slip.

Were you voted "most likely to comment on wonkette 5000 times" in high school?

sullivanst June 21, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Article 6 only applies to debts and obligations entered into under the Articles of Confederation, though.

Section 5 of the 14th Amendment seems more relevant, especially given the proportion of our debt that's owed to Social Security.

Libertarians/conservatives certainly seem to have a highly selective reading of Article 6 – they skip right past the supremacy clause to the bound by oath clause, which they only pay attention to when it suits them, and never get as far as the no religious test clause.

Just like his pretend girlfriend, that hag that looks like she stepped out of a spooky Mormon hell dream: everything is unconstitutional for you but not for me unless it's something I don't give a shit about, like reproductive rights for women. Just like Ron Paul, it was nothing Ayn R. Her looks and those yellow teeth was all the contraception one person needed.

BerkeleyBear June 21, 2012 at 4:55 pm

Personally, I preferred the property rights freak I had for two semesters who was both taking financial aid and worked in billing at a hospital in a job that without Medicare/Medicaid as well as all sorts of state subsidies probably doesn't exist.

biblioteq_tress June 23, 2012 at 12:47 pm

I work for a federal agency that pays various entitlement benefits. At least once a week I will get a call from some, um, l'll stick to the word "client" who will rant about federal waste — then ask where his check is and complain about how low it is. This usually comes from an older client whose annuity payments have long since exceeded his contributions. Then there is a one in three chance he will finish it off with a racist slur about our president.
Sometimes I hate my job.
BUT for shear unwitting irony, nothing beats when I worked in a government archive. I regularly got pulled away from my regular job to respond to wingnut queries– like why does the government hide the truth about Clinton selling Montana to China. No small number would also unleash on how the government is wasting his money. Really? Like by spending fifteen minutes answering your asinine question, pulling documents from the archives that prove Montana is still US soil, mailing photocopies to you? And when confronted with proof, did you change your mind?
Sometimes I hated that job, too.

“If you try to improve relationships by forcing and telling people what they can’t do, and you ignore and undermine the principles of liberty, then the government can come into our bedrooms,” Paul explained. “And that’s exactly what has happened. Look at what’s happened with the PATRIOT Act. They can come into our houses, our bedrooms our businesses … And it was started back then [Civil Rights Act].”
