    I am surprised that so many of you find it outrageous that a man running for congress in the USA is not willing to reject a part of the Declaration of Independence. Broden is not calling for an uprising. He is simply echoing the notion of our founders that government is made to serve man, not the other way around. I find it very refreshing in a politician.

    Kinda funny since you just called an African American a "redneck". You seem to have confused your cultural slurs slightly.

    Finally. I am a citizen residing in District 30. I have a sign for Stephan Broden in my yard. His opponent is a nightmare who gave a bunch of grant money to her own grandchildren, other relatives and employees children, and denies to this day she has done anything wrong.

    Some of you underestimate this man. He is endorsed by the Dallas Morning news, and I along with the majority in my district will vote for him.

    They have continued to spend money we don't have on projects that have been proven don't work.

    I have been waiting to hear this out in the open. For almost a year I have heard this said and have seen and been told of emails that were hinting of the possibility.

    Okay first he misquoted the Declaration of Independence which says:




    I want the revolution to come Nov.2nd at the ballot box, not as suggested by radical followers of Mao in the Obama administration at the point of a gun.

    Besides as I have pointed out Obama has violated his oath of office as it relates to Article 4 Section 4 of the Constitution, which says in part: "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion,"

    This is an impeachable offense and it's only one of many, and that's god enough for me.
    Sorry you missed your flight back to earth. I'm sure you can catch one tomorrow.

    Sorry, but even if you don't like Obama (obviously you are not a swing voter), things are far, far more under control than you let on. I thought GW Bush was an incredible disaster, yet the union lives on (though pretty seriously wounded economically).

    Don't deal in hyperbole and you will find you (and those around you) will live a much happier life.

    Anyway, I hope he wins.

    I honestly think it hurt the DMN to its core to have to endorse him. They even spend the first paragraph of the endorsement lamenting they cant endorse Johnson.

    But the nepotism scandal that Eddie Bernice Johnson was involved in is an amazingly big deal.

    Strangely, nothing was in there about Muslims who want Sharia law. Which makes that totally irrelevant to this thread.
    If you don't get the connection between Sharia Law, revolution and the obvious threat to the Constitution then, for you, there is none.

    Seems like an excellent candidate, Capslock. America needs more people like him at this point in their history.

Now I don't advocate revolt at this point; and as he says there are Constitutional options by which we can first try to regain control. I don't see anything particularly wrong with his statement.
    You know, Ikari, it's interesting that you say that revolution of government is a tool of the People and yet it is a Republican candidate who is advocating revolt. I find this interesting because there are conservatives in the Republican Party who are also advocates of the repeal of the 17th Amendment, which provides the direct election of Senators. Such an appeal would take power the People have over the federal government away from the People.

    So while the People have the power to enact revolution, it's important that it not be advocated by a smaller group wishing to impose their own kind of tyranny over others.

    Personally, I think that the Constitution allows popular initiatives over the federal government, and some process for that should be enacted so the People have a direct method of control over the federal government. I think that before any faction advocates revolt on behalf of "the People" they should first advocate more methods of direct democracy for "the People."

    But good luck with that.

    If this government believes that the government is made to serve man, not the other way around, then does this candidate advocate gay marriage, repeal of DADT within the military, is pro-choice regarding abortion, and favors a public option government health care plan?
