The most recewnt Sc decison that I think posed a threat to the Constitution was Dred Scott, the rest is just dishonesty from you
You on the other hand have proposed gutting at leas the first and the second amendments, and have advocated for government control of political speech.
Pain shared is divided, joy shared is multiplied
And that's their personal opinion, not part of any progressive movement I've ever heard of.mikekerrIII correlates, but does not show causation:
Read this thread and especially the second amendment thread may progressive here consider the Buill of rights and the Constitution obsolete and too old to be revelvent.

plus, most of those he is referring to aren't even part of the broad american progressive movement because they're foreigners
By the way, the idea of Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Karl Rove, Newt Ginrich, Eric Cantor, Mitch McConnell, and John Boehner having to be honest makes my bowels quake with terror because it will surely destroy this nation, the Greatest Nation on Earth (TM).
I mean, what the fuck kind of paranoid delusional wuss thinks that such a law would be a threat to freedom? That we could not withstand what would obviously be a Slippery Slope (logical fallacy) to Fascism is ridiculous.
Im hearing accusations that congress is trying to create a financial crisis to divert attention away from gun control discussions. That is a massive stretch.

Let's get back to complaining about Republicans ...
Republicans Now 100 Percent AWOL From Fiscal Cliff Talks
John Boehner gave up on fiscal cliff negotiations after he was unable to get House Republicans to agree to any proposal at all, even one that he himself had crafted. The fate of the Republic, he said, was now in the Senate's hands. So how is Mitch McConnell handling things?
An aide said Wednesday that McConnell had not been in contact with any top Democrats, including Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), the majority leader, during the holiday break....Always cautious, McConnell has kept a decidedly low profile during the last few weeks of political theater in the Capitol....Behind the scenes, he  helped devise Boehner's Plan B maneuver, which failed to gain enough Republican votes to be brought up in the House. In the aftermath of that defeat, however, McConnell may be unwilling to take on the job of deal-maker. The reasons reflect the pressures that have buffeted his fellow Republicans.
"I cannot emphasize how little a constructive role he will play in this," Democratic strategist Jim Manley, a former top Reid aide, said of McConnell. "He's going to be very reluctant to get involved, and to the extent he does get involved, he's going to move very slowly."
I don't think that's how negotiations are supposed to work. Is this a shoot-the-hostage situation?
Then again, I think that the media have really over-blown the effects of the fiscal cliff. The biggest problems are that it signals to the markets that our government is completely dysfunctional and makes it difficult for most government agencies (including the military) to plan for the rest of the year and following years. But if taxes go up and they make a deal, they go right back down with your next paycheck.
