Response to Amonester (Reply #13)

67. This POS is supported by the First Amendment, and the majority of the US HoR.

US House of Representatives total: 435
Republican Majority: 240
Democratic Minority: 190
With 5 vacancies.

Treason lost its meaning in the legal system. Sedition is almost never charged. Elected officials serve at the whim of their constituents and reflect their warped values and venality. Unless this particular POS, just one of many GOP, was literally incarcerated and denied the privilege of his office, he'd be re-elected for this screed. There is an entire generation brought up on the world view espoused by this POS, so he gets a pass.

Besides, he hasn't been charged with anything. There have been Republicans calling for revolution and killing Obama for quite some time now, and nothing has ever been done about it. And as long as they hold majority in states and the House of Representatives, nothing will ever be done.

When we had Democratic majorities in D.C. in the Nixon era, there were enough people to hold him to account. He resigned because he knew their next move was impeachment. They would have rightfully done so, to protect the political system, considering his guilt, which was proved in criminal court. His conspirators went to prison in his stead.

He left office and Ford used his privilege immediately to pardon him for those crimes. Then Carter was elected to get back to where we needed to be and the eternal enemy of democratic government reared its traitorous head again and has never stopped being in control. People that want to blame Obama for the direction this country is in, and has been headed on for over thirty years must be political neophytes or swallowed Fox, libertarian and conspiracy lies of all three media.

This gang has been steadily transforming this country with Koch monies, right wing religion and media. They have been playing on the easily corrupted, with a long term game that has changed the culture of this country. If they weren't so destructive, I'd give them a high five.

I wish that the Section of the 14th you quoted was taken seriously in this country. Proabably less than a 1/3rd of the voters even comprehend the language contained in the Constitution anymore. Most likely, 1/3 believe the Constitution as revised by Falwell, Robertson and every scummy GOP who has a bull horn.
