A Republic No More

Last night in the U.S. House of Representatives, a party’s leadership refused to abide by a legal vote (Volunteer Opinion Journal).

The vote was on a Republican measure to strip from a farm bill language that guaranteed welfare for illegal aliens. The vote was 215-213 in favor of stripping the guarantees.

But Nancy Pelosi wanted a different result. So, her minions essentially burned the ballots, declared there was no vote, and ordered a new one (Michelle Malkin).

Republican members and staff witnessed Democrat thugs intimidating junior Democrat Congressmen into changing their votes. The strong-arming is on video. Republicans, incensed that the Democrats had illegally overturned the vote, refused to participate in the charade–the Republicans walked out (Gateway Pundit).

If the majority party can nullify lawful votes because the leaders disagree with the results, is there really any point in pretending we are still a republic? We’re not. We’re an oligarchy, and a crappy one at that.

Since we’re now operating well outside the parameters of the Constitution, perhaps the President should send the Army to seize the Capitol, expel Congress, and call new elections.

To hell with a bunch of Democrat crooks.

UPDATE: Captain’s Quarters: “House to Investigate . . . Itself!” I can predict the result: a recommendation to eliminate the photo ID requirement at Congressioal voting booths.

One Commnet on “A Republic No More

  1. Except that such a move from a President would be the exact same thing Hitler did. The Democrats are the ones trying to wrest power and villifying Bush; let’s not give validity to their argument by suggesting that sort of thing, even in jest. No, popular opinion is not always right; but if we conservatives are the real majority, then why are there so few turning up for our protests? We empower liberals by remaining quiet, which largely we are. We need to retain our dignity for sure, but we need to make ourselves more visible and fight harder to make America better.
