More From The Gestapo Left

Yesterday I posted about those crazy guys on the left wanting to solve our gridlock problems in Washington by effectively declaring a dictatorship. The problem, it seems, is we have too much democracy.

Now we have the follow up:

GOP: No 'Joke' for North Carolina Governor to Suggest Suspending Elections

Read the article

The Governor of North Carolina has proposed we not hold Congressional elections for 2 years to give the current Congress time to work on getting the country's fiscal house in order.

The thinking is that the members of Congress would not feel pressure and would then be able to accomplish something. More on that in a bit.

Have these people ever heard of the Constitution of the United States?

Article I, Section 2:

The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States, and the Electors in each State shall have the Qualifications requisite for Electors of the most numerous Branch of the State Legislature.

What about election for President? If we are going to trample on the Constitution why stop at Congress?

The real question though is, why shouldn't they have pressure on them? This goes to the heart of a democracy, people get to elect representatives that look out for their interests. We have now decided that this is not true? We want them to govern as they see fit without the pesky citizens bothering them? Is this not a dictatorship?

Darn that pesky Constitution! It's standing in the way of our power.

These people have been very comfortable and more open lately about bypassing the Constitution and US law. The reaction wasn't quite what they thought it would be, so now they think they can lie they're what out of what Perdue said and meant by it.

It demonstrates the arrogance and disconnect with the people that has pervaded the political establishment. Warning signs are all over the place. People need hold those elected officials accountable or we will end up with government like Cuba or Zimbabwe.

That is so typical of Bev. She is so out in left field that even she is lost.
Bev would love to suspend all elections not just congressional ones. She knows that come next election her butthole buddies in Congress are going to come home a packin with no where to go. She also knows that without that support she is toast next election.
She has been a disaster for the state of NC according to my daughter and my many friends who live there.

Is that the best idea the libs can come up with to keep Nobama in the White Houses a little longer?

This governor is spouting treason, IMO. Did she or did she not take an oath to uphold the Constitution? Read the NC Oath of Office HERE. Excerpt:

Before entering upon the duties of an office, a person elected or appointed to the office shall take and subscribe the following oath:

"I, ..........................., do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and maintain the Constitution and laws of the United States, and the Constitution and laws of North Carolina not inconsistent therewith, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of my office as ............................................., so help me God."


She is basically saying, "You THE PEOPLE don't know enough to elect the 'right' people."

Pfffft.

AOW , that is exactly what she is saying and exactly how she thinks. She and her cronies know what is best for everyone.

AOW, exactly right. We are not electing the right people

Ticker, agreed
