I'm confused...


Recommended Posts

If "Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,"...and if the governed have essentially stripped away any doubt as to whether or not the government has been given consent to redefine marriage (or any other "controversial" issue) through passage of a Constitutional Amendment, where then do the courts (a branch of government) get the idea that they somehow have the power to act against (and therefore without) the consent of the governed?

Right now our "Leaders" feel that they know best and can do whatever they want, however they want, and of course there are no polititions who can say hey, that's not legal! So we get what we deserve by electing people who seek not to govern on our behalf but rather because they know what is "best" for us. The failure to govern by the rule of LAW, pick and chose what to enforce or not etc., is a path to lawlessness, "redistribution" of wealth and many other wonderful things to come.

Get ready to call each other comrad and know that personal property will be a thing of the past. Bread lines here we come!

Adam Carolla had an interesting (and very true) take on things...in a Fox News interview in regards to his new book:

"FOX411: Are you a registered voter?

Carolla: I am. I'm an Independent.

FOX411: Do you think both sides are idiots?

Carolla: For the most part. They're both in the game of trying to figure out what the idiots want and are trying to give it to them, which is not what they should be doing. It's like a school teacher with 30 kids in the class. 'Who wants to study the constitution?' Everyone says boo and then the next teacher says, 'Who wants to go outside and eat peanut butter cups?' Everyone goes yeah! Who's going to win the election? Not the one who says buckle down and do your homework.

And by the way when they're running they say, 'Hey you don't want to elect the guy who makes you sit inside and read all day.' That's kind of what this thing is turning into which is scary. Also we end up taking issues and talking about them and we never get to the real stuff. California is I don't know, 49th in education or something insane like that but all we do is talk about secondhand smoke. The biggest problem I see is ignoring the big problem and focusing on the stuff that distracts us.".

All politicians corrupt and power hungry. Obamama changes laws with out Congress. Enacts laws by Executive Orders. Reid will stop any bill he wants for spit to the Republicans. Obamma and Holder state they will not enforce laws "they don't like". EPA sets rules by whim. New fuel economy reg for trucks, coal and now oil fueled power plants to name a few. The Surgeon General is now classifying guns as a serious health issue via ACA. White House and Congress are moving to allow the UN to tax Americans for food, water, internet and emissions. $390 Billion dollars for a new set of "shovel Ready" projects to repair our highways and bridges.

NYS Governor Cumo tells residents" if you have traditional views of marriage, believe in the right to own any weapons and have Christian Conservative values...we don't want you in our state"

Local school board election in Hempstead at the close of voting is won by an unknown candidate. The next morning the election board "finds" 100 absentee votes for the loser, and swear her in ASAP. The State of N.Y. board of elections says it will be to costly and a long affair to remove the "winner". The "winner" with the absentee votes was black, the unknown was Hispanic....

It is beyond comprehension to see what is considered "normal political business".

Before the current administration came to power, these "transgressions" would never be tolerated.

We have gone from "by the people , for the people" to "by the government for the government" Paul
