When Did I Sign Up for this New “Social Compact”

President Barack Obama kicked off his “Shared Responsibility, Shared Prosperity” tour last week with a spirited defense of progressive principles — hereafter known as America’s “basic social compact.” Now, for those of you who believe we already have an American compact in the Constitution, your selfishness is undoubtedly clouding your feeble memory.

There are several good things in this post, but my favorite is the simple point about how the only true social compact in American is the Constitution.  How liberals miss this and come up with their own “social compacts” – which they then go about forcing us to adhere to with new laws – shocks me.  But, to a liberal, they don’t even see the intellectual inconsistency of this.  To them, makes perfect sense.
