Gullibility at its finest

I’m not going to touch what’s going on in 2 days.  I’m still taking a wait and see attitude.  I might need some popcorn for the show though, since it looks like it’s going to be a doozy.  For all of those who are saying Democrats lost, get over it – remember you didn’t.  Remember the assertions that Obama was Muslim, that Obama wasn’t born in the US.  All of those assertions were proved wrong, but people still insisted on believing them.  Now if anything is brought up about Trump, then it’s ‘but Hillary… emails!’ Whatever.  She wasn’t elected, so what does she have to do with the illegal stuff he’s doing?  I do look at everything else, and have my thoughts, which I’m sure I’ll come out with soon enough.

I did have to laugh today though.  I got an email from Causes – sometimes they have good causes and I don’t mind signing a petition.  Today I got this:  https://www.causes.com/actions/1787170-sign-the-petition-to-lawmakers-in-your-state.  I was curious what was really going on, so I did a quick Google search.  You know, a bit of research to verify that it was something we needed to worry about before I signed.  Instead, this is what I found:  http://www.nationalreview.com/article/440506/constitutional-amendments-states-convention

Now that makes it very interesting.  A lot of people are fed up with who we have in Congress.  They want to impose term limits.  Well, they’re not very well going to do it themselves, but there’s a way the states can start constitutional amendments.  We can force what congress isn’t willing to do, we just need to follow Article V of the Constitution.  I for one like the idea of imposing limits on some of what’s been going on.

We have grown adults acting worse than a preschooler in congress, because they aren’t willing to compromise.  I’m sorry, at that point it’s more like they’re saying they’re going to take their toys and go home.  Let’s not even think about the simple obstructionism that’s been going on for 6 years.  If we have to clean house for the white house, let’s clean the rest of the cesspool as well.

I’d rather take a wait and see attitude for the constitutional amendments as well.  Let’s see what they come up with before we decide to petition our lawmakers to reject something.  Because once we know what amendments they want to add, then we can act.  It’s not too late – oddly even after it’s passed, it’s not too late.  Look at the 18th amendment – prohibition was an actual amendment to the constitution after all.

Just don’t touch the 19th amendment.  I want my voice heard still.
