There is something dramatically wrong with a party that commits political suicide and votes against the will of the vast majority of Americans. Or is there? What do Democrats know about Obama's plans that would motivate them to defy the people?
In an apparent act of suicidal defiance of the American people, virtually every elected Democrat in Washington voted to place a massive target on their back and invite people to shoot arrows in November.
Why would they do this? Why would the leadership and members, virtually en masse, agree to commit political suicide?
Answer: They wouldn't.
So, what's up?
The American people have just been given a clear and resounding warning that Obama has plans to deal with the huge electoral problem Democrats have just created for themselves.
Will it be a manufactured crisis that Obama uses to declare a state of marshall law to postpone elections until things settle down (i.e., until Democrats can recoup some of their support)?
Or will it be massive fraud using a well-funded ACORN to generate sufficient "votes" to ensure Democrats retain control of Congress?
Or will it be some other contrived distortion of the American electoral process.
One thing is certain. Something major will be done, no doubt "Chicago style", to counter the enormous hit Democrats would take if the elections were held today!
We know Democrats are not the brightest people in the world, but they are not so monumentally stupid that they would commit political suicide for their party.
Bob Webster, a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
