    Let the be no mistake: liberals hate the Constitution. They hate rules, checks/balances (unless they're writing checks, usually with no balances) and will do whatever they can to nullify it.

    Post examples when you find them.

    Here is just the latest example:

    Bill Gates: ‘Some days I wish we had a system like the UK’ to give Obama more power [VIDEO] | The Daily Caller

    Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, the wealthiest American, said on “some days” he wishes the U.S. political system were like England’s, so that President Barack Obama could have “slightly more power.”
    Gates was asked for his assessment of President Obama’s job performance during an interview at Politico’s “Playbook Cocktails” event.
    “Some days I wish we had a system like the U.K. where, you know, the party in power could do a lot and you know, you’d see how it went and then fine you could un-elect them,” said Gates on Wednesday.
    “Now, over time, our system has worked slightly better than theirs, theirs has worked okay but so it’s ironic that right now it feels like I wish there was slightly more power in the presidency to avoid some of these deadlocks. So I think what he [Obama] wants to do and what he’s actually able to do, the gap is so big there that it’s hard to know in some ways.”
    Gates praised President Obama for his education policy and commended former President George W. Bush for The President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
    “I think the education piece is probably the most unappreciated piece there where Bush, he was definitely unappreciated for the AIDS work. I went to an AIDS conference where somebody mentioned Bush and the audience was like, ‘boo’ or something like that. Well that is deeply, ironically unfair.”
    He called PEPFAR a “phenomenal thing” that would not have happened without Bush’s “leadership.”
    “I feel the same way about a lot of the education things that have happened in the last four years,” Gates said.

    Funny, they're all for giving the Pres unlimited powers now because they worship the ground he floats above, but fail to consider what would happen if a Pres they didn't like came to power with the free reign they would willingly bestow upon their current savior. I'm pretty sure when Bush was in office, they weren't clamoring to do away with the Bill of Rights or term limits or pining for the way things are in Merry Olde England, even if he did have a hand in PEPFAR.

    Liberals live on both sides of the aisle in government. More power, feed me, free stuff, yum yum, we'll fix every thing because we're so great, wise and all knowing. Tax and spend us into prosperity we will. Even liberals hate other liberals and aren't happy until nobody's happy.
