I consider their vote an affront to the separation of powers, an affront to the Constitution, an affront to representative government, and an affront to the spirit of law, equally applied, that is the lynchpin of a constitutional republic.
I wish there were some method for removing elected representatives who lied in order to get elected. But that would mean ridding ourselves of most of them.
Which may not be such a bad idea — at least until we can figure out how to fix the broken system. And that will involve a resurgence of Governors, state nullification, refusal to abide by SCOTUS decisions that are facially unconstitutional (by violating the 9th and 10th amendments, and by granting the federal government powers not expressly enumerated).
We live in a post-constitutional police state. The establishment, safe in their gated communities, with their children in private schools, sneer at us.
But that is only because we, the people, have allowed them to.
Mark Levin reads the names of the 14 GOP Senators that voted for amnesty today and while doing so, apologizes for backing Orrin Hatch:
Mark has on occasion over the years infuriated me with his support for obvious shit sandwiches like Hatch, generally on the notion that our shit sandwich is marginally better than their pile of shit. What he’s always missed is that a shit sandwich may not be a pile of shit, but it’s still stuffed with shit, and it will poison you.
I think he’s coming around at last, though. At least I hope he is.
We can’t take on the Democrat-Socialists unless and until we either renew or replace the Republican Party with an organization that actually represents the American people, and defends their Constitution. And that means no longer supporting Ruling Class Republicans who think their allegiance is to the Ruling Party, rather than the people, ideas, and founding documents they are supposed to represent. We may be in the wilderness for a while during the cleanup and rebuilding process, but how is that worse than what we have now?
As Jeff points out: We let them do it to us.
