THE PEOPLE VERSUS THE PEOPLE | 2004-04-17

The Constitution says that its only source of authority is , "We the People of the United States of America."

So nine lawyers in black dresses overrule the popular will in the name of "We the People of the United States of America."

How far can you go if you say you are "interpreting" the Constitution? O'Reilly says the Founding Fathers demanded interracial high school dances because they called it the UNITED States of America.

He's serious.

Once you start "interpreting" the Constitution, there is no limit to how ridiculous you can get.

And you can kill anybody who gets in your way.
