Americans voted “for revenge” and gave Obama “more flexibility.” The result won’t be pretty.
We apparently live under one-party rule now. Harry Reid has the votes to eliminate all filibustering. He wants to end the possibility of any filibustering on debating legislation and other Democrats want to require members who threaten the filibuster to actually deliver a “talking filibuster.”
Reid is going for the nuclear option which will change the rules of the senate to require only 51 votes rather than a two-thirds majority for a filibuster. Now that the Republicans have only 47 seats, it will be easy to do.
With his usual Alinsky-style twisting of the truth, he said, “I think that the rules have been abused and that we’re going to work to change them. We’re not going to do away with the filibuster, but we’re going to make the Senate a more meaningful place, we’re going to make it so that we can get things done.”
Harry is basically going to eliminate the Republican and Conservative voice. He likes the idea of a one-party, commie-type system of government.
Then Reid is going for an immigration overhaul. That’s a lot of Democratic voters for the party and I’m sure he will push for them to have automatic citizenship. We need the reform but it’s the automatic citizenship thing I have a problem with. Who knows what else he will pack into his idea of reform. No doubt he will encourage more illegal immigration. Napolitano has already admitted that drug dealers and terrorists slip over that border.
Reid also threatened Republicans and said if they try to block his proposals, they do so at “their peril.” [info from the jacks at Politico]
Reuter reports that “hours after U.S. President Barack Obama was re-elected, the United States backed a U.N. committee’s call on Wednesday to renew debate over a draft international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global conventional arms trade.”
Goodbye second amendment. That treaty is absolutely aimed at ending our second amendment. The only small arms Obama wants to control are ours.
It will not be immediate I suppose. It will be more like a slow, painful death by regulation.
Harry Reid can get this treaty through without much of a problem. It will supersede our constitution.
Oh, and at the same time, Obama wants to have another arms treaty with Russia. The treaties are used to destroy more of our weapons. He has already gutted our missile self-defense and soon he will move on to small arms. He has talked about it and he will do it. If you think the first four years were bad, wait until you have lived through the next four.
Yep, elections have consequences.
