9 thoughts on “Democrat Governors Discuss Subverting The Constitution With Obama”

  1. I think it’s a great irony. When Obama’s party controlled Congress, he ran roughshod over the rights of the states. Now he needs them.

    As to the alleged subversion of the Constitution, the states are independent powers and properly have some ability to act separately of the federal government. This can be a legitimate way to do things. Obama (as well as some of the governors) has a tendency to take miles where inches have been given, but it’s still not inherently illegal or unconstitutional to try this sort of runaround.

  2. Article 1 Section 10: “No State shall, without the Consent of Congress,….. enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State……”

    States can only go so far without “Consent of Congress”.

    OT, but the States could declare War on Mexico because they are being “invaded”, do you think?

    Article 1 Section 10: “No State shall, without the Consent of Congress,….. …or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.”

    There has been plenty of delay on that issue.

  3. As long as they don’t have any free-rider issues (or as long as they don’t understand any free-rider issues; these are Democrats…) they ought to be able to go pretty far without any agreements, compacts, or consent of Congress.

    That’s how the “laboratories of democracy” were supposed to work, no? A bunch of people have an idea, it first gets tried out in the state with the most agreeable population, and the rest of us watch how it succeeds or fails. If it’s succeeding then other states adopt and try to improve it; if there are serious problems then other states nominate the responsible Governor for the most philosophically-opposed party’s presidential bid.

    Well, that’s almost how it was supposed to work, anyway.

    1. This is my sentiment. Democrat Govenors are free to ruin their state, so long as they don’t expect other states to bail them out. This is the problem in the EU right now. Greece screwed up, but there is this expectation that other states bail them out. Well, California and Illinois are in a race to failure. They are welcome to continue their socialist attempts to fix their economic situation, but I draw the line at the border as to what I owe either of those states to help them out of the failure they created.

  4. I tried to find out how many of these Dem. Governors are in re-election fights this year, but I couldn’t find a full tally anywhere. Does anyone know?

    I’m asking because our (NC) Guv has said she won’t run for re-election. (well, the scuttle butt here is that the WH asked her NOT to run, for fear of losing His Majesty any votes if she loses)

  5. Who needs to consult parliament when you’ve got a king supported by lords, dukes, and barons, all of whom were bred to wisely govern?

  6. And they wonder why people are stocking up on guns and bullets as fast as they can. Keep this sort of garbage up and we will have to put up a store of tar and feathers just in case. They make the case for an early return of the Vigilance Committees. Cheers –
