Barack Obama and His Urban Parasites Declare War on the Constitution
American Thinker ^ | 5/28/2014 | William A. Levinson

Posted on 05/28/2014 2:28:10 AM PDT by markomalley

Who needs the birthers when we have Barack Obama himself? His recent statement about the role of the U.S. Senate proves that he is a self-declared enemy of the United States Constitution and of its checks and balances on federal power.

At a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, Mr. Obama told a small group of wealthy supporters that there are several hurdles to keeping Democrats in control of the Senate and recapturing the House. One of those problems, he said, is the apportionment of two Senate seats to each state regardless of population.

“Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming. That puts us at a disadvantage,” Mr. Obama said.

Of course, Wyoming has the same Senate representation as California specifically to prevent individuals like Barack Obama, and his constituency of urban parasites, from imposing their will on the less populous states. This "Great Compromise" of 1787 was a condition of these states' willingness to join the United States in the first place.

This is also why each state gets no fewer than three electoral votes, regardless of population. Hillary Clinton dislikes this arrangement, because it gives her constituency less leverage in presidential elections.

Yep, good piece. Obama and the Rat commies care only about the big cities. Rural America can either move there and submit to the collective or shut up, for all they care.

That was the idea.

And, it’s time to return to state legislature election of the Senators, too.

It’s no secret that Zero and 0bamunists are working diligently to destroy America. That is old news. This is just another twist of the knife...

You would think that “Constitutional Scholar” would know why there are only two Senators per State.

All this is old news. Odumbo and his ilk have been declaring war on our Constitution since the day he took the oath of POTUS.

Yes, it was a good column, except the first sentence about “birthers” could have easily been left out.

There are very legitimate concerns about “Obama’s” past and his possible ineligibility to even run for the office of President. I know, I know—it’s too late now.

New England is by far over represented in the Senate. Tiny Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts send six Bolshevik Senators between them. They are losing population to the southern states so why does NE get so much influence?

It’s not the Progressives in office who are the problem,
it’s the people who continue to elect them and who believe the collectivist propaganda that we live in a “democracy”.

Say hello to the “dictatorship of the proletariat” comrades and say hello to government officials who swear to uphold the Constitution yet who continue to undermine it.

One day they’ll have the audacity to say that the Constitution is unconstitutional.

IMHO

C'mon now; You know why, If we had an honest, active engaged, freedom-loving mass
media, these B@$t@rds wouldn't see the inside lights of the Capitol Hill..but we don't,
do we?
..they're as corrupt; as the Establishment Party, they cover in Wash. DC.
Is it any wonder, we only get the truth about our Gov't. from the UK/Canada? We have
very few papers (Wash. Beacon/Times) who actually work on their own stories.
Most; If not all, rely on the DNC/Marxist sycophants @ the NYT (NY/Boston/Wash/
Chic./LA axis) posts, as their leads..no such thing "as freedom in the print" in the axis.

Progressives declared war against the Constitution 150 years ago.

The Constitution makes it clear that Senators represent the states equally - two per state.

Or at least that is the way it started out.

But we can't expect an Affirmative Action constitutional scholar to understand historical details like that.

Obama whines to wealthy supporters in gangland Chicago: “Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming. That puts us Democrats at a disadvantage,” Mr. Obama said.

THE AUTHOR EXPLAINS: Of course, Wyoming has the same Senate representation as California specifically to prevent individuals like Barack Obama, and his constituency of urban parasites, from imposing their will on the less populous states. This "Great Compromise" of 1787 was a condition of these states' willingness to join the United States in the first place.

===================================================================

REALITY CHECK Obama, the man who campaigned on his alleged Constitutional expertise, still does not "get it".... the constitutional mechanism of the bicameral Congress, and three separate branches of government, is there to impede reckless agendas, such as his. The Founders (who lived under tyranny) constructed our govt to smack down tyranny whenever it raised its ugly head. The Founders' attention to this detail actually works.

We need these protections now, more than ever. To contemplate changes to consolidate the power of an individual or a party, is very, very foolish.

Quite right.

One of the roles of the Senate's "one state, two votes" arrangement is to stop the parasites from voting themselves bread and circuses.

For some reason, two democratically derived houses of congress made sense to most Americans in 1913. It was self-betrayal, and unless it is reversed, it will rightfully be blamed as the cause of our destruction.

Because the constitution specifically, directly acts on the states as states. If the constitution acted only on the people, there wouldn’t have been any need for state representation in the senate.
