RE: Dems go full Emperor Palpatine
The comments are even scarier b/c it shows this isn't just some lone opinion.

But Dems have hated the Senate for a long time b/c they hate it doesn't give NY & CA unlimited power.

Dems want the very dangerous unbridled majority rule

And moving the majority of power back to the states? I'm all for it. Really wish the democrats would lay off trying to attack the 2nd amendment as well.

something, something, something, Climate Change

I can't see the tweet so i can only guess at what the specifics are, but when I read the headline, this is what came to mind. Its a meme of sorts for those that don't get the reference.... but 'dark side'

When I saw the headline the first thought I had was that just like in Star Wars the Empire was trying to resurrect a dead Palpatine, Dems keep trying to pump life into a practically brain dead "president."

Just for a second every now and then I read this outlandish crap they are proposing and wonder if they are just trolling the public to see if we the people still have a damned pulse! The America I grew up loving would have been ballistic two to three decades ago.

My what public indoctrination posing as education has done!

Millennials, Gen Z, and today's kids are taught to hate America, hate white skin, and believe that socialism is the answer.

Shame on all of us for not cleaning house on Public Education 30 years ago. I took on some issues in the 80's with my oldest daughter and then sent my youngest to Catholic school. I was out of it as a parent by the 90's, but way too many people I knew would simply say "What the Hell" when their kids came home with whacko ideas they had been told. The teachers weren't confronted enough and the local school boars weren't petitioned about it and way too many said, well they'll learn the truth when they go to college. But that was polluted too. Then their excuse while they cheered on State U was well college is always liberal they learn when they get a job. But not if the job is corporate and their CBE's are just more leftist indoctrination and by the time they work for a corporation they are too scared to buck the system for fear of becoming unemployable with a corporate blackball in their personnel file delivered as a paper dagger by an HR idiot with a degree in Psychology they got online and an online counselor's license.

I'm afraid that with the death of private business (mostly due to government regulations on the little guy and perks for the conglomerates) that we've lost our last window to learn practical values.

Apparently you haven’t seen the John Adams quote that the Constitution is only going to work for people with religious and / or moral fiber. Something this country has lacked for a long time. I used to think if the common citizens ever became like our politicians we are in real trouble. Guess what Tom?!?!? That time has come.

So when you pray tonight make you say Our Father which art in Washington? It must feel really good as that propaganda kool aid washes your brain daily. Wow, I just spotted some trees in the forest!!! Sorry wrong guy you still haven’t spotted any.

The 2nd Amendment is not going anywhere. It's well within the power of the president and congress to impose limits on things.

Saying you can't own a nuclear weapon or making you wait a week after passing a background check to purchase a gun is not taking away your Constitutional right to an arm.

HOnest question... since I can't see it... can you give me the 10 second summary??

There's no 60-vote requirement anywhere in The Constitution.

Yes, I get the fact that The Constitution gives the senate the right to make their rules.

And just like when Harry Reid eliminated the 60 vote rule and it came back to bite the Dems on Supreme Court nominations......this latest Dem tactic will eventually come back to bite them again.

The Dems have a penchant for playing the “I want it right now” game as though the pendulum never swings back the other way.

It’s the classic “short term satisfaction but long term detriment”
