Seven ways Rick Perry wants to change the Constitution | The Ticket - Yahoo! News
Thank you. That doesn't change the fact that I am still not voting for him.
I was just thinking we hadn't had a Rick Perry thread in about 5 minutes...
Kudos on your cut and paste, though...
Just as I asked Sky with her attack on Christians I will ask you.
How does a President change the Constitution?
Let me answer for you, he can't.
Now if he managed to get 218 believers in the House , 51 believers in the Senate and could convince the majority of voters in 37 States he might change the Constitution. What is the chance of that happening? And if it does, I would suggest to you it was in fact, the will of the people as provided for IN THE CONSTITUTION.
What I want to know .... Who gives a crap about Rick Perry?. Looks like a diaper failin' kid to me.
1st, Perry can 'want' anything he feels like wanting... it's a free country.
2nd, he can't 'get' the changes unless Congress, the Senate, and 37 states agree.
3rd, here's the list of what he 'wanted'...
Personally, four is ok with me.
Before the ratification of the 17th amendment, the state legislature would elect U.S. Senators.
I am not opposed to that.
The house speaks for the people directly and the Senate speaks for the states directly.
As I elect a representative to the state legislature, my vote for U.S. Senator is by proxy through my State Representative, just as my vote on U.S. law is by proxy via my U.S. Representative.
You gotta wonder why lefties whine about fair and balanced FOX and want to hush Rush when they have the rest of the media in their back pocket. Yahoo news might as well have been the Al Jazzera news when Americans were fighting in Iraq. Now we have to wade through liberal drivel according to an editorial blogger named Chris Moody.
and Rick Perry is qualified to change the Constitution for why?
and I want to trust a blockhead to understand how the Constitution works, why?
Alot of that sounds pretty good to me.
