The Senate Just Became A Democracy. Harry Reid And The Nuclear Option.

Harry and the Boys just crossed a 200 year old line in the sand.

What’s that you say we are a Democracy? Nope sorry , but we are a
Constitutional Republic/ Federal Republic depending on who you ask. The difference is in a Democracy the Majority/Mob rules. A simple majority.
In other words Mob rules. Here’s an example.
You have 100 people 60 Men and 40 Women.
Certain Men want to rape the Women and they keep voting on it , but they keep losing by a vote of 59-41. So they can not rape.
Now simple rule change and “Democracy/Mob Rule” they vote and it is now 51-49 Men win and get to rape Women. Do you now see why it was important to keep the vote at 60.

But Karma is a Bitch and after 2014 the Demtards will have to pay the piper.

Legal expert says Senate Dems’ nuclear option could lead to ‘mass destruction’

 [youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i548245_hBU]Jay Sekulow, the Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice , told Fox NewsMegyn Kelly Thursday Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid’s decision to invoke the so-called “nuclear option” could change the face of the federal judiciary, saying “when you use a nuclear weapon there is mass destruction.”
Sekulow said on “The Kelly File” the Senate decision to approve a rule change that strips the minority party of its primary power to block nominations could be a slippery slope.
“I think Supreme Court nominees aren’t going to be off the table either, I don’t think legislation is off the table,” Sekulow said. “I think what Harry did today was use the nuclear option and Megyn, when you use a nuclear weapon there is mass destruction.”
He said Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, Obama appointees considered to be very liberal, could seem moderate in comparison to future appointees in other federal courts.
(Yikes!)  s_shocked-15
“The president said he wants to remake the federal judiciary and you can imagine the image in which that is going to be remade,” he said.
However, Sekulow said the Democrats’ move may backfire, because Republicans will be able to do the same when they regain the majority in the chamber and there is a Republican in the White House.
“The fact of the matter is they need to play tough too because it is good for both, this is not a one-way ratchet here,” he said.

Some Of Skippy’s Greatest Statements .

  1. “Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s.”

  2. “I’ve now been in 57 states I think I have one left to go.”

  3. “On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes, and I see many of them in the audience here today.”

  4. “What they’ll say is, ‘Well it costs too much money,’ but you know what? It would cost, about. It it it would cost about the same as what we would spend. It. Over the course of 10 years it would cost what it would costs us. (nervous laugh) All right. Okay. We’re going to. It. It would cost us about the same as it would cost for about hold on one second. I can’t hear myself. But I’m glad you’re fired up, though. I’m glad.”

  5. “The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system.”

  6. “I bowled a 129. It’s like – it was like the Special Olympics, or something.”

  7. “Of the many responsibilities granted to a president by our Constitution, few are more serious or more consequential than selecting a Supreme Court justice. The members of our highest court are granted life tenure, often serving long after the presidents who appointed them. And they are charged with the vital task of applying principles put to paper more than 20 centuries ago to some of the most difficult questions of our time.”

  8. “Everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma, they end up taking up a hospital bed, it costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early and they got some treatment, and a, a breathalyzer, or inhalator, not a breathalyzer. I haven’t had much sleep in the last 48 hours.”

  9. “It was interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate. There’s a lot of I don’t know what the term is in Austrian, wheeling and dealing.”

  10. “I have made good judgments in the past. I have made good judgments in the future.”

Goldwater Institute – Groundbreaking US Supreme Court decision on the Tenth Amendment

Posted by Arizona Tea Party on June 17, 2011 at 11:30am

Yesterday the U.S. Supreme Court issued one of the best and most important decisions ever on federalism. The Court unanimously held that not just states but individuals have standing to challenge federal laws as violations of state sovereignty under the 10th Amendment. This decision is as radical in the direction of liberty as the New Deal was radical in the direction of socialism. Click here to read the decision.

In short, freedom advocates like us just got a green light from the USSC to bring more cases under the 10th Amendment. This will have huge—positive—implications for freedom so long as the current constitution of the court holds

Here is our favorite passage: “Federalism secures the freedom of the individual. It allows States to respond, through the enactment of positive law, to the initiative of those who seek a voice in shaping the destiny of their own times without having to rely solely upon the political processes that control a remote central power.” We will put this precedent to work immediately when we file our opening brief in the Obamacare lawsuit Monday, and also in our defense of Save Our Secret Ballot against the NLRB challenge, and many more cases to come.

One other important note: Sometimes little cases make big constitutional law. This case involved a woman who was prosecuted under federal law for harassing her husband’s girlfriend—not the set of facts ordinarily creating an important precedent. Some of our cases, too, are seemingly “little” but with big principles at stake.

Freedom is making strides in the courtroom, and we’ll do our best to keep that momentum going. Thank you for your support that makes it possible._______________________________________
