    I'm not talking about the GOP. I'm talking about a future party that will "never vote for legislation unless the proposed measure is expressly authorized by the Constitution."

    Simple question: Yes or No.

    I can't answer. Too many assumptions for the basis of the question leading potentially to a false dichotomy.

    I want ALL parties back to a strict constructionist basis.

    I want the act of knowingly voting for unconstitutional legislation akin to high crimes and punishable by long prison terms or capital punishment.

    I want those in office actively/knowing supporting designed to undermine the constitution removed from office for violating their oath.

    I don't care what party they're on. If they will being the process of rolling back the last 160 years of unconstitutional legislation, I'd be ecstatic. And if it can't be rolled back, move it to the states where it IS constitutional and let the people of that state bear the burden while those who do not, get rid of it.

    We must stand up and fight this fascism that has currently seized the government by the throat and is preparing to rape and enslave the American Populace.

    Are you saying that it is perfectly okay to purposefully write laws that are un-Constitutional? And that the people we elect have a duty to vote for those kinds of laws?

    Because the only way to see this is to oppose any party that deliberately writes laws that violate the very foundation of our society just to satisfy the cowardice of a few.

    No. I consider the Constitution to be an incomplete document...a foundation on which to build the rest of the laws.

    I'm not saying anything. There are plenty of politicians who write laws that are unconstitutional and yet people keep supporting them, so I'd assume there would be a lot of people who would answer 'No'. A 'Maybe' would most likely be a 'No' unless the person has no idea how our country was founded.

    It's a poll. Yes or no.
