The 112th congress opened session yesterday with a reading of the constitution.  Frankly, I’m not really impressed.  It is a symbolic act and I appreciate it as such.  However, the corrupting influences in Washington cannot be over matched by the simple vocalization of our nation’s supreme law.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hold that anyone believes just reading the constitution is a remedy to any of our country’s ills.  There are going to be some very tough battles, the toughest being the battle against the status quo.

Washington is a machine.  It has A LOT of momentum.  The interconnections and intricacies of regulation, legislation and the bureaucracy that keeps it all humming along is MIND BOGGLING.  Further, that bureaucracy is deeply entrenched and deeply committed to ITS OWN SURVIVAL.

We’ll see what happens.

This decade's battle will be The Constitution, a document of maybe 50 or so pages, against the massive bureaucracy of Washington D.C.
