"The Simulacrum of Self-Government"

Mark Steyn peels back the curtain on just one day of Washington, and points out:

As I say, just another day in the life of the republic: a corrupt bureaucracy dispensing federal gravy to favored clients; a pseudo-legislature passing bills unread by the people’s representatives and uncomprehended by the men who claim to have written them; and a co-regency of jurists torturing an 18th-century document in order to justify what other countries are at least honest enough to recognize as an unprecedented novelty. Whether or not, per Scalia, we should “condemn” the United States Constitution, it might be time to put the poor wee thing out of its misery.
Somewhere, rule of the people, by the people, and for the people, got replaced by an overweening concern for the rights (or desires) of a few. Anyway, read the whole thing.
