Obama once again shows his contempt for the Constitution
This subject line is almost a standing headline when it comes to King Putt. Recently, Obama made the statement that the problems he is having are the fault of the Founding Fathers and how they set up the structure of the Federal Government.
It seems that Obama is objecting to the Senate only having two members from each state. Because it Senate isn’t set up like the house, we have gridlock and it’s all the fault of the men who wrote the constitution. Here are the details from the Washington Times:
President Obama is taking a swipe at the Founding Fathers, blaming his inability to move his agenda on the “disadvantage” of having each state represented equally in the Senate.
I see that the “Constitutional Scholar” has once again missed the reasons things were set up the way they are. The House represents the people, and the Senate represents the states. But Der Fubar has never been one to let facts get in the way of his desires.
At a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, (May 22, 2014), Mr. Obama told a small group of wealthy supporters that there are several hurdles to keeping Democrats in control of the Senate and recapturing the House. One of those problems, he said, is the apportionment of two Senate seats to each state regardless of population.
“Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming. That puts us at a disadvantage,” Mr. Obama said.
As I mentioned above you moron, that is what the House was set up for.
The Founding Fathers decided in the “Great Compromise” in 1787 to apportion House seats based on population and give each state two seats in the Senate regardless of population. The solution was a compromise between large states and small states in a dispute that nearly dissolved the Constitutional Convention.
The reason for the “Great Compromise, for those of you who attended Public School and never studied American History, is simple. The smaller states were afraid they would be run over by the larger states. Since the House of Representatives was set up so that each state had seats apportioned by the number of people in it, states like New York would have more representation then states like Rhode Island. The Senate was created as a check on the large states, and worked fairly well until the changed the way Senators were chosen1.
The president also blamed “demographics” for the inability of the Democratic Party to gain more power in Congress, saying Democrats “tend to congregate a little more densely” in cities such as New York and Chicago. He said it gives Republicans disproportional clout in Congress.
“So there are some structural reasons why, despite the fact that Republican ideas are largely rejected by the public, it’s still hard for us to break through,” Mr. Obama said.
And here we see just how delusional Il Douche is. What has been rejected by the productive members of American society, as opposed to Obama and the PLFD’s “Free Stuff Army,” is the socialist agenda they have been ramming down the throats of the American People. Right off the bat, we have Obamacare, which was opposed by the majority of the people when it was being put together, and has only grown more unpopular since it went into effect. However, President Bubble Boy really only cares about his golf handicap and not what is actually happening in the world.
The fact is, our form of government is in the process of collapsing. By rights, Obama and probably Biden should have been removed from office by now, Obama for high crimes and misdemeanors and Biden for mental incompetence. The only reasons those two are still in office is the Senate being controlled by the most corrupt senate majority leader in American History, (Harry Reid), the utter disregard for the Constitution and their duties to the nation by the Progressive Liberal Fascist Democrats and the outright incompetence and cowardice of the Establishment Republican Party.
The problem with the Federal government is very simple. Our elected and appointed officials have lost their fear of the people they purport to represent. Rather then heed the lessons of what happened at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada, (Or almost happened), they are doubling down on their plans to end the Republican form of Democracy that our founders created 214 years ago. People like Obama won’t be satisfied until they no longer need to worry about things like elections, the rights of the people or the constitution. When that day comes, the Great Experiment2 ends and the Light of Liberty goes out.
