Not saying they ...............

Done editing. It is what it is.

Time to drink.
Agreed, everyone wants to put their own spin on what they think the Constitution means but considerably fewer know anything about how we ended up with it the way it is. You don't even have to read it anymore, you can just sit and listen.

That was hysterically sad. I watched the old men and women embarrass themselves.

Someone may disagree with how they interpret what the founding fathers meant but that doesn't mean they are anti-constitution.
I won't say I blindly fall in line to either of these categories, but a Constitutionalist can essentially be defined as one who wishes to strip 85% of the powers that the Feral Gov has assumed it has. Protect our citizens and provide for them before anyone else. Secure our sovereignty.
I agree that no one party can be defined as "anti-Constitution" but there are (IMHO) vastly more far left liberals in our government that wish to ignore it than there are far right who wish to do so. Coming from the left, I see how far down that rabbit hole they go. Which is why I realized they no longer share my values as a whole.

I think it is because the Dems dont want to hear how well the country (generally) is doing despite the blockade. My curiosity is piqued as to why the president has agreed to delay. The man does nothing without forethought. He may seem impulsive at first glance but is a chess player in reality.

I think they always keep one or two Justices away for national security, she could be exempted, in the unlikely event terrorists nuke the capitol then we're left with a handful of Sen's/Rep's and Justices to organize continuity of government, scary that it would be fully in her hands though, maybe the new guy (Kavanaugh) should be exempted from appearance, I'd rather he were involved in post apocalypse restoration than her.

I think we're going in the direction of national emergency as the next stop in the Trump train....

Im sorry, I am completely lost. So you think - RBG (you childishly call Ruth Vader Ginsberg? and the Democracts as demonrats? - geez, I wonder why we are so politically divided...) is actually dead? And somehow, the Democrats are able to hide this? The republicans are so inept that they can't figure this out?

Now on to more serious discussion - I think saying the federal government needs to 85% smaller does really make sense - at least without any other information. For one, what do you define as the "government" and what would you like to see made smaller?

Now you take offense to demonrats and Vader Ginsberg (who BTW says she doesn't consider our constitution in her decisions), and you say nothing about the 24/7 negative news coverage of the president of the United States and insinuate our name calling is why we're divided? You can't be serious! The Obamahmed administration used the power of the government to spy on a political rival, Clinton destroyed evidence, the political hacks on the left routinely call the president a racist, a liar and worse. The lame stream news media is a propaganda wing of the democrats as evidenced just this past weekend when they completely ignored the black racists and Phillips lying about the entire encounter along with his military service, and trashed a bunch of innocent HS kids simply because they were white and wore MAGA hats. We're divided because the last administration made it their goal to divide us and the fake news media has been on board all the way.

EVERYTHING in government needs to be smaller. The government should not be the biggest employer in the country. For one thing, it's just not sustainable fiscally.

The news media is a commercial entity that is catering to its audience. The same can be said about Fox but its the propaganda machine of the right. Its like this because WE - the consumers of the media - let it be that way. Like any business, their main goal is to make money and they do so by drawing audience and getting ad revenue. So yes, I blame interactions like this as the foundation - the media feeds off the devide, but they didn't create the divide. You want to change it - then be informed, stop watching news that just agrees with your position, hold the news to a higher standard and be informed.

Blaming Obama is not true nor does it solve the problem.
