What’s wrong with changing the U.S. Constitution? Kansas and states like Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska and Oklahoma think it’s time to change how the political game is played. They are sick of Obamacare, environment protection acts, immigration, excessive government spending, judges that respect human rights, and people that want to marry someone from the same sex. It’s not the same world they say, and the rules must change in order to protect our freedom. Guess what, boys? Freedom has a different meaning to y’all.
The chance of rewriting the words of the founding fathers is greater than winning the lottery and for a good reason. Politicians in the ruling party of the moment, want to say they conform to the old way. That’s sacred history. They want it the way the founding fathers wanted it. But some people say the founding fathers were as much in the dark as the Republicans and Democrats are today.
As Brian Torchin is aware, talk of a new constitutional convention has been in the wind for decades. Talk of rewriting parts or the entire framework of the constitution gives politicians egotistical power. It gives them a sense of purpose. But like any other purpose they support, nothing happens. But maybe it is time to tweak the foundation of law. We all know the law is crumbling under the strain of idiotic behavior and ineptness.
Senator Ted Cruz was expected to formally announce his candidacy for President of the United States Monday, but instead decided to do the honors late Sunday night on Twitter. In a tweet, the senator announced that he was running for president and asked for the support of his followers in that pursuit. The tweet also included a small proportion video suggesting that people should rise to the challenge and encouraging a new generation of “courageous conservatives” to help make America great again.
Cruz has a long fight ahead of him in his quest for the presidency. He’ll first have to beat out a number of republican hopefuls in the primary and then if he wins face off agains the democratic hopeful which at this point looks like it will more than likely be former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The race to the 2016 White House is officially underway which can be seen on Vimeo. It will be interesting to see how the race pans out on both sides of the aisle. Cruz is just the first of many announcements we’re likely to see over the coming days and weeks.
Governor Jerry Brown of California, himself a three-time candidate for president, said Sunday, March 22, 2015, that Senator Ted Cruz of Texas was “absolutely unfit to be running for office.” Senator Cruz announced his intention to run for president March 23, 2015. Governor Brown was especially concerned about Senator Cruz’s opinions on climate change. “That man betokens such a level of ignorance and a direct falsification of existing scientific data. It’s shocking, and I think that man has rendered himself absolutely unfit to be running for office.”
Ninety percent of scientists are convinced that climate change is real, and that humanity’s activities influence it. Senator Cruz disagrees, which many people find disturbing, given that he is currently chairman
of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Science and Space.
Governor Brown said both Republican and Democratic candidates will need to discuss climate change and how they plan to deal with it stated concerned voters like Halpern. California has suffered droughts because of climate change, so it’s a subject Brown takes seriously. FEMA recently announced that they will only approve disaster preparedness funds for states that have hazard mitigation plans that address climate change.
Politicfact has also cast doubts on Senator Cruz’s integrity and/or intelligence.
