I Can’t Believe They’re Actually Running With It!

They floated the trial balloon last week in the NYT. Now CBS Morning News is running this as a genuine option for political debate. Talk about raising the temperature of the debate.

You know what, let’s just do away with all laws. No leaders. No binding legislation. Just bi-weekly sessions of voting where non-binding suggestions can be offered to the people as they pick up their gov’t cheese and disability checks. It still amazes me that these fools can sit, with a straight face, and suggest ignoring the rules when the system doesn’t work in their favor, but become the vanguard of constitutional protection when it helps them out.

Calm…Breathe…1…2…3…4… Exhale.

Let me put this in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS, for the record:

I swore my life to the defense of the Constitution of the united States of America. That sacred oath has no expiration and my offer still stands. NEVER, will I live in an America which ignores the Constitution completely.

    This asshole should be stripped of his citizenship and sent packing to… the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea!

    That man is a deluded utopian. Not only a deluded utopian, but one that does not really fathom the consequences of what he’s asking for. What he’s asking for is a populist-friendly form of government that shifts to and fro with the shifting socio-political winds.

    If he had his way, he would probably suggest that we hold national referendums every decade to remake our constitution in whatever way we see fit at any given time.

    The horrifying implications thereof aren’t only realized by “people that can’t tolerate change,” believe it or not. Such an environment is the epitome of mob rule, economic uncertainty, and scapegoat-ism.

    After a tragedy such as Sandy Hook, 51% votes away gun rights. Some guy makes a video that gets the Islamic Maghreb chanting, and the 1st Amendment gets restricted by certain… “qualifications.” After it is revealed that the black community comprises only ~15% of the population, but commits ~45% of its crimes, suddenly we impose curfews on the black community.

    All of these changes in such a system, as the one that the pundit above talks about, can be implemented pretty quickly. Striking while the iron is still hot is how power-hungry populists operate, in order to best take advantage of peoples’ emotions.

    A deliberate, methodical, reasoned approach is that of the constitutional republic. To undermine its steadfastness is to invite volatility… and then the inevitable “strong man” to stabilize the volatility.

    Why not? We could just do whatever the fuck we want to do day to day and have majority rule, winner-take-all electoral system. Whatever….

  4. R.D. Walker says:

    I guess this ass doesn’t realize the Constitution offers the means to change it to say anything we want it to say.

      /whines, “But it’s so haaaaaarrrrddd!”

      Per Article VII, thank God it takes a 2/3 majority of the states to amend the Constitution. And it takes on average 7 to 9 years to accomplish.
      However, the Supreme Court could legislate from the bench and nullify Article VII in 5 minutes.
      WTF?

    Democracy fetishists have such short memories.

    The media no longer makes any attempt to hide what side of the line they are on. We know, and have known.
    Leftist shriek about Fox, but lets face it, Fox is pretty ineffectual.
    Good article here:

    • xenicalman says:

      Too bad that Fox is losing its identity. Appears to be steadily moving toward center. Angry they dumped Sarah Palin. O’Reliey bloviates and throws too many soft balls. There appears to be no other credible voice in the mainstream.
      Thankful for Real Revo though

    I don’t think this guy is talking about us having no rules or having general elections every couple of weeks. I think he is advocating for a leftist utopia where the rules are made and changed every couple weeks by a leftist central planner. He’s proposing doing away with laws made by the people and toward rules made by people like him.

    It’s a leftist’s notion of utopia and it will never work because those in power will consolidate and enlarge their power and their decisions will be made based upon whims and revenge.

    This idiot will be one of the first to enter the gulag when he starts whining about ‘Fairness’.

  8. Roy Ryder says:

    It’s frightening that the leftists feel so empowered by the recent election that crackpots like this are given a national forum instead being isolated to a streetcorner in hobotown. They’re starting to believe their own propaganda and advancing toward extremist goals that set themselves on a collision coarse with the rest of America. I hope that the collision occurs in the arena of politics and elections, because if it goes beyond that then we are in some serious, serious trouble.

  9. notamobster says:

    Just another log on the fire that seems to burning hotter by the week, Roy! If it stays in the political arena, we suffer 4 years of mind-numbing gridlock & endless whining. I’m afraid that won’t happen. I think Barry sees himself as having a mandate and thus emboldened, will push well beyond his Constitutional authority, sparking a dangerous conflagration.

  10. Tony says:

    Obviously this is not a 2nd Amendment argument. This it an argument for ignoring the Constitution. Not amending the Constitution but ignoring it. This man is attempting to utilize the passion of those opposed to firearms as an argument to ignore the Constitution. Unfortunately some will buy into this line of thought.
    Just the last week a friend suggested the Constitution was outdated and was “written by a bunch of old white guys”.

  11. notamobster says:

    In your friends defense, it WAS written by a bunch of old white guys… and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. That is one of the many ways in which liberals try to associate being white, with being a bad thing. Like, somehow the fact they were white makes their logic any less valid.
