There is an absolute rule of human nature. Desperate people do stupid things. Desperate people say stupid things. The more desperate someone is, the more likely they are to do something that reveals their true intentions.
Nothing could be truer than with the Democrat Party right now.
Why are they desperate and what are the true intentions they are revealing?
They are desperate because they see the tsunami coming. As water recedes from a beach before the tidal wave, the signs are there that 2012 will be such a disaster for the Party of Treason that it may take a generation for it to recover, if it can ever recover.
Election forecasts show significant gains for the GOP in the House, expanding their margin. The GOP is poised to take control of the Senate and if trends continue, the only real question will be does the GOP get a super majority in the Senate. And the White House increasingly feels like the Titanic, inexorably sinking with nothing that can be done to stop it and no lifeboats for the socialist ideas the Obama/Pelosi/Reid axis of fiscal evil wants to impose on this nation.
The desperation to impose socialism on America against the will of the American people is now being seen from members of the Party of Treason. They speak openly of the problems of liberty.
Peter Orszag was the Director of the Office of Management and Budget in the Obama Regime. In a recent interview in the left leaning The New Republic magazine, he said:
“So what to do? To solve the serious problems facing our country, we need to minimize the harm from legislative inertia by relying more on automatic policies and depoliticized commissions for certain policy decisions. In other words, radical as it sounds, we need to counter the gridlock of our political institutions by making them a bit less democratic.”
Of course, there is the answer right there. Let’s kill liberty. Let’s take away the rights of the people to vote, to speak, to petition their government for redress of grievances.
Liberals love dictatorships. In a dictatorship, they can just push their crackpot ideas and not have to worry about the little people complaining about a few minor details like, the ideas don’t work. The ideas suck.
Their model has worked so well in the past. History has the precedents of their ideas. Just look at the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, and China under Mao, Eastern Europe under the Warsaw Pact, Vietnam after 1975, Cambodia and Cuba.
Seeing the handwriting on the wall, left wing North Carolina Governor and certifiable lunatic Bev Perdue said yesterday:
"You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things. I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won't hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.”
What Bev Perdue and the left do not want is the next election that is going sweep them out of power. This is the moment where they will be the most dangerous. Between the unelected czars and the left’s last desperate gasp, as they try to push socialism down our throats one last time, we face not only the time of greatest peril but also the time of greatest opportunity.
We must find new leaders to replace these bad leaders. The people we select must have as an overriding belief in the idea that big government must be dismantled and we must take steps to ensure that never again is a socialist in the White House.
We need to remember the words our founding fathers put in the Declaration of Independence.
“That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,”
We must make certain we have new leaders in 2012 to replace the bad leadership we have had. We must make certain that our new leaders are committed to liberty and the destruction of big government. Our government needs much altering. Let us alter government before it becomes destructive of these ends and requires abolition.
Three words describe the Democrats desperation; i.e., obama, Reid and Pelosi . . . . . this triumvirate represents the bitter end of the Democratic Party☺☺
No need to repeal the 16th. It was never ratified. This was proven by the people in the great state of Wyoming. Bill Benson wrote a book, "The Law that Never Was." Type that in as one work . com and read his documentation.
Secretary Philander Know pushed it through any way. This is another secret the IRS and other have hidden very well.
I think we should repeal the 17th amendment and return the election of Senators to the state governments as was originally intended by the writers of The Constitution.
Additionally, I think the names of the candidates for President should no longer be listed on the election ballot and we should be going to the polls on election day for the purpose of electing the college of electors per The Constitution as originally written. (Copied below.)
Our nation was intended to be a REPUBLIC, not the half-assed pathetically inept democracy that it has been turned into by the scam artists who have prevailed in most of our 112 Congresses as well as in most of our state legislatures.
Clause 2: Method of choosing electors
|“||Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.||”|
Under the U.S. Constitution the President and Vice President are chosen by Electors, under a constitutional grant of authority delegated to the legislatures of the several states and the District of Columbia (see Bush v. Gore). The constitution reserves the choice of the precise manner for creating Electors to the will of the state legislatures. It does not define or delimit what process a state legislature may use to create its state college of Electors. In practice, the state legislatures have generally chosen to create Electors through an indirect popular vote, since the 1820s.
In an indirect popular vote, it is the names of the electors who are on the ballot to be elected. Typically, their names are aligned under the name of the candidate for President and Vice President, that they, the Elector, have pledged they will support. It is fully understood by the voters and the Electors themselves that they are the representative "stand-ins" for the individuals to whom they have pledged to cast their electoral college ballots to be President and Vice President. In some states, in past years, this pledge was informal, and an Elector could still legally cast their electoral ballot for whomever they chose. More recently, state legislatures (exercising their constitutional authority to do so) have mandated in law that Electors shall cast their electoral college ballot for the Presidential Candidate to whom they are pledged.
Each state chooses as many Electors as it has Representatives and Senators representing it in Congress. Under the Twenty-third Amendment, the District of Columbia may choose no more electors than the state with the lowest amount of electoral votes. No Senators, Representatives or federal officers may become Electors.
|“||The Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot for two Persons, of whom one at least shall not be an Inhabitant of the same State with themselves. And they shall make a List of all the Persons voted for, and of the Number of Votes for each; which List they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the Seat of the Government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted. The Person having the greatest Number of Votes shall be the President, if such Number be a Majority of the whole Number of Electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse [sic] by Ballot one of them for President; and if no Person have a Majority, then from the five highest on the List the said House shall in like Manner chuse [sic] the President. But in chusing [sic] the President, the Votes shall be taken by States, the Representation from each State having one Vote; A quorum for this Purpose shall consist of a Member or Members from two thirds of the States, and a Majority of all the States shall be necessary to a Choice. In every Case, after the Choice of the President, the Person having the greatest Number of Votes of the Electors shall be the Vice President. But if there should remain two or more who have equal Votes, the Senate shall chuse [sic] from them by Ballot the Vice President.|
And so the GOPwins a super majority and then what?
They cave again to special interests. It is nto enough that the GOP wins, we must take out the long term politicians and exchange them for working men and women who will accept term limits.
It is always important to read the whole post. I read the first part of your post and started getting my exercise by jumping to conclusions, and running my mouth. Then I got to the end. Ahhhhhhhh. I agree.
