The Constitution Matters Too

Talk about associations affecting one's personal perspective on life, let's talk Newt Gingrich and Alvin and Heidi Toffler.

Gingrich wrote the Introduction to the Heidi and Alvin Toffler book: The Third Wave

If Gingrich doesn't believe what the Toffler's wrote, shouldn't Gingrich reject the Tofflers? For instance, the Tofflers argue for a drastically new and according to them, improved, United States Constitution.

What does Newt Gingrich have to say about that chapter?

Nothing. Nobody has ever asked Gingrich whether he believes in his heart the United States Constitution basics are well basic enough to keep, or whether the basics are out of touch with the United States of the future.

It may be dry reading, the Constitution, but it's what any President will take an oath to not only abide by, but defend and preserve with his/her every breath.

It's about time the media read it, and determine who else has followed it and will continue to follow it after taking an oath of office to uphold it as President of the United States.

John McCain's Attack on the 1st Amendment
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

John McCain will be unable to honestly take this oath of office. As we've seen through his passage of McCain-Feingold and his attacks on 1st Amendment rights he is incapable to say the words "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution" without chocking.

Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Whose Future Is it, Anyway?
Steve G. Steinberg

Gingrich has been a friend of futurists Alvin and Heidi Toffler since the early 1970s, back when Alvin Toffler's Future Shock was riding the bestseller lists and Gingrich was a history professor. Since then, the Tofflers have become an integral part of Gingrich's brain trust and a clear influence on Newt's vision of the future. Although Gingrich's views on cultural issues like abortion and homosexuality are well to the right of the Tofflers' and can seem more antediluvian than futurist, Alvin Toffler is adamant that Gingrich is a 21st-century figure...
