Gingrich Pledges to Violate Constitution as President

    “It is time to insist on judges who understand the history and meaning of America as a country endowed by God.”  –Newt Gingrich, Winning the Future, p. 45

This statement goes far to exemplify a critical aspect of Newt Gingrich that makes him unfit to be an American leader.

On its face and without being isolated for focus, this statement is easy to gloss over and neglect the radical nature of his idea, which is to violate a core principle of our original and existing U.S. Constitution.  Consider:

    “…no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”  U.S. Constitution, Article VI

If you read the whole sentence from the Constitution, it includes the charge that a President Gingrich would have to swear an oath to support the Constitution.

Does Newt Gingrich support the Constitution or not?  His own words impeach him and invalidate his candidacy.

    That “argument” from Newt really shows his autocratic streak, and makes him unfit. Obama was critical of the SCOTUS while they sat in the front row during his state of the union speech, but Newt is going further and issuing a challenge that we last saw from FDR, in his threat to expand the size of the SCOTUS.
