Democrats Charge Ahead…Against the Constitution and Our Will!

by John Allison III, Editor

Last year, President Barack Hussein Obama demanded Congress get Obamacare to his desk by the August Recess…then the Thanksgiving Recess…then the Christmas Recess. Didn’t happen. Why?

Because the American people didn’t want it.

And now he’s set another deadline…the Easter Recess. And again, the American people don’t want his government takeover of our health care system.

But Congressional Democrats don’t care what the people think, they are charging ahead. Earlier this week Pelosi basically told us we just have to trust her to know what’s best for us. “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it,” she told the American people. She plans to do just that this weekend.

She and her Democrat allies have even devised a plan to trash the constitutional provision demanding a House vote on the Senate bill using the “Slaughter Solution.” This latest trick was designed by House Rules Committee Chairwoman Louise Slaughter (D-NY) to help vulnerable Democrats avoid a direct vote that will very likely end their political careers.

If adopted, the rule will allow Democrats to “deem” the Senate bill passed without the up-or-down vote President Obama has called for recently. This blatantly disregards the constitution’s (which I’m now doubting any of these Democrats have ever read) Article I requirements for a vote on legislation.

Article I, Section 5

Each House shall keep a Journal of its Proceedings, and from time to time publish the same, excepting such Parts as may in their Judgment require Secrecy; and the Yeas and Nays of the Members of either House on any question shall, at the Desire of one fifth of those Present, be entered on the Journal.

So the constitution requires, if 1/5 of those present request it, that Yeas and Nays on any question be recorded!

I’m just about 100% sure we can get at least 20 Senators and 87 Representatives to request a vote be taken and the results recorded.

But these Democrat tyrants have no regard for the constitution! And no regard for the majority of Americans who oppose their tyranny! If they can disregard this clause, they can pick the entire document to pieces. An article here, a clause there, a section here, an amendment there…until our founding document has been completely shredded. Our rights, enumerated by our forefathers over 200 years ago, like so much confetti.

Rise up America! Use the links at the right to call, write, and email you Congressman and Senators today. Otherwise, this may be the last week our Constitution is worth the paper it’s written on!

More Proof: What Democrats Think of You!

Representative Louise Slaughter (D-NY) explains why she won’t hold town hall meetings, and it reveals the utter disdain she holds for the Americans, her constituents, who wish to have their voice heard.

“I’m not going to give those people a forum…”

“My own dignity and the dignity of the office I hold is important to me…”

“I’ve got the best relationship with my constituents that anybody could ever imagine…”

“They know I’m not going to do anything to hurt them…”

These high and mighty Democrats have begun to consider themselves a cut above those of us who vote to put them in office. They’ve assumed some sort of noble status as a permanent ruling class. We’ve been labeled un-American, Right-Wing Extremist, Right-Wing Terrorist, and now this…beneath the dignity of their office.

Vote these pompous fools out in 2010!

House Dems to Republicans: Sit down and shut up

That’s basically what Representative Louise Slaughter(D-NY), Chairwoman of the House Rules Committee, said to Representative David Dreier (R-CA) when he wanted to ask questions about upcoming appropriation bills in the House.  “Even the Democrats on the committee were stunned to silence…We knew this day was coming, but it really is a sad day when the Democrats stop any form of questioning between the Republicans and chairmen who are presenting their bills before the committee,” an observer noted.

Just last month, Obama claimed he expected more bipartisanship and that Americans “want results, not bickering.”  Is it bickering to pose questions when it comes to wasting taxpayer money?  After Joe Biden plainly stated the administration and its Democratic allies in Congress are wasting money, I believe the people want more debate, more questions, and more who are willing to stand up and demand accountability.  But the Democrats’ definition of bipartisanship is for the GOP to lay down and play dead as evidenced by Slaughter’s silencing of Dreier.  Apparently, Democrats have decided recent Republican challenges to their burgeoning spending programs have awaken the American people to the fallacy of their Utopianic promises to tax and spend America into prosperity.  To counter, they result to the totalitarian tactic of silencing all dissenters.

Just consider what happened Tuesday night at the Capitol and you’ll see this isn’t just an exaggeration by a Right-Wing Extremist.

Most lawmakers left at 6:30 pm after approving an emergency war spending bill, led to believe by the Democratic leadership that no more votes would occur that night.  But the plan all along was to ensure Republicans wouldn’t get a chance to offer key amendments that Dems didn’t want to see attached to another spending bill.  Almost two hours after being dismissed for the day, lawmakers were suddenly summoned to return for the vote they’d been told would not occur.  Of course not all made it back.  This trickery avoided debate over two key amendments that would have denied federal funding to the criminal organization ACORN, a well-known patron of Democratic candidates.  The third was an amendment to launch an investigation into the House Speaker herself, lying Nancy Pelosi, over her accusations that the CIA lied to her about waterboarding terrorists.  The trickery worked for the tyrannical Dems and debate on the amendments was quashed by a vote of 179-124.  More than 100 Congressmen didn’t get the word and their constituents were disenfranchised by the totalitarian rule of the Democratic majority.

With an overwhelming majority, the question is “Why do the Democrats have to resort to such tactics?”  The answer is their positions can’t stand public scrutiny.  Recent Republican criticism has pointed out obvious flaws in the Democratic agenda on issues from health care reform to the closing of Gitmo.  Polls are beginning to turn against the party that seeks to ram its Socialist policies down the throats of all Americans and the Dems don’t like it.

But if they can’t win an honest debate, the Democratic leadership is showing that it can and will resort to tyranny and trickery.
