Okay, here we go. We knew liberals were fundamentally illiberal, and Democrats were fundamentally undemocratic, but little did we know that in an ocean full of leftist lies we could find a thimble full of truth.
So when an obscure Democrat governor from a southern state starts rambling about “suspending elections” until the economic crisis is over, my commie radar starts pinging like crazy.
Here’s what Perdue said:
“You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things. I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that. The one good thing about Raleigh is that for so many years we worked across party lines. It’s a little bit more contentious now but it’s not impossible to try to do what’s right in this state. You want people who don’t worry about the next election.”
Sorry, the Democrats are the ones who should be worrying about the next election. Trust me, the American people are looking forward to it. If Perdue wants to play chicken with the American people, we’re more than game.
If some think Perdue’s words were a “joke” or a “fluke,” recall this? Democrat Socialists of America member Jose Serrano (D – NY) proposed removing Constitutional restrictions on presidential term limits immediately after Obama was elected:
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House concurring therein),
That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years after the date of its submission for ratification:
`The twenty-second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.’.
This is one of those “crazy amendments” Americans would have to watch out should the states ever hold a Constitutional convention, even under the auspices of repealing Obamacare.
But if these examples seem too far out of the Democrat mainstream, one could look to NY Times mandarin Thomas Friedman and his admonition that U.S. should be “China for a day” and “authorize the right solutions” to America’s problems. Hmm, sounds eerily familiar. Could that day be November 6th, 2012?
More recently, Peter Orszag directly calls for “less democracy” in a New Republic piece (of sh*t), ostensibly so government can “solve” our economic problems. Hey, dillweeds. Government caused the problems to begin with! Why do you think the nationwide economic meltdown was nationwide? Housing market collapses don’t happen that way unless there is a common denominator, such as federal government intervention in the market.
Between the distinctly unfunny Bev Perdue episode, Elizabeth Warren’s comments about no one getting rich on his own, Obama’s “class warrior” posturing, and other examples of insane rhetoric on the left, one can presume that the Democrats’ desperate strategy will be to continue unveiling their true socialist colors. Now that they’ve already begun that painful process, they are truly going to wish to repeal elections. Being a slimeball leftist is hard; getting overly rejected by the American people makes it that much harder.
But alas, it is too late. Obama is going down and taking his socialist Democrat friends with him, along with America. There is no way the Democrats are getting off unscathed, as easily as waving a magic wand and suspending Congressional elections. In your dreams, Democrats.
