Anything and everything the democrats can do to circumvent the established rules in order to shove their abominable agenda down the throats of America they'll do. This should be no surprise.
Obama has a tendency to conjure the name of Ronald Reagan in much that he does, likes to try to compare himself to the Gipper.
Well, I for one am not a huge fan of Reagan.
There is one thing that Reagan did which Obama has failed at miserably. He made us proud to be American.
Now, some Obama leg humper is undoubtedly going to say, "This is Reid, Obama had absolutely nothing to do with it, it is a issue of the Legislative branch not the Executive, you Obama haters just will do anything to drag his name into the mud, no matter who does what!!"
To them I will say -- Grow up. Stop being naive. This is done with the sole intention of stacking the bench with ideologically aligned judiciaries who'll march lock and step with the worldview Obama has for us. If you don't think Reid, Pelosi, and Obama haven't been commiserating, than you really know nothing about political affairs and perhaps your time would be better spent on Pinterest than on a political chat forum.
Today the senate just became another House of Representatives. From this day forward any party who has the majority in the senate now is free to dispense with a filibuster with only 51 votes. The Precedence has been set. The idea or American ideal as John Adams put it, that we are “A nation of laws and not of man,” is gone. Anytime any party with a simple majority can change the rules and the law that had applied to suit themselves or the man, the nation of law and rules is gone. The rule of man has superseded the rule of law.
If anyone thinks this will stop here, it won’t. Both parties are now free to change rules that protected the minority party to suit the majority; tyranny of the majority is at hand. When one party controls both chambers of congress and the president, it is now free to repeal any and all laws that have been passed by their opposition party when they were in power; there is nothing now to stop them. No checks or balances on absolute power of a simple majority and that party can pass and enact any legislation it wants as long as it controls both chambers of congress and the presidency. If the Republicans were to gain back the senate, keep control of the house and win the presidency in 2016, I wouldn’t be surprised if they used this Senator Harry Reid Precedence to repeal Obamacare, to cut taxes on the rich, perhaps abolish the corporate tax, privatize social security, abolish the EPA, the labor board, and I could go on and on. All they have to do is use the precedence set today by Harry Reid as he abolished the rights of the minority.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
