Change Constitution so AOC can run for President.

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/vox...-for-president

Being discussed on political radio shows this morning.

Hmmm...no.

But I am willing to make a compromise. Lower the age to be president to 25, and make the age to vote be at least 25 (unless one has an armed forces ID card or Honorable discharge).

At first I was thinking," yeah, let her run - no way this moonbat crazy chick would get elected!" But then I remember how Obama got elected, and half of America voted for Hillary and how many supported Bernie - well, I have no faith in the majority of the American voters to use logic or common sense. She may actually have a chance to win. So, no, we are not changing the Constitution.

I mean fuck it, lets go Direct Democracy, 51% popular vote gets you everything, including Judicial.

The Tyranny of the Majority is only something societies dealt with in the Classical Age, we as a species have clearly evolved since then, right?

What could go wrong?

Probably the single best thing we could do is rally to pass an Amendment that would force clean, single-item bills only. No adding bullshit to proposed legislation. You know, no adding war funding to an agricultural bill.

Vox is and always has been fucking stupid.

However this might be the smartest thing this newly elected person has said that I've heard:

Quote:
Even Ocasio-Cortez pushed back on the premise:

“How about... no,” she wrote. “Sometimes political media is too fixated on personalities instead of policies. The whole country JUST went through an exhausting midterm election. We need a break.”

As the pendulum swings more and more extreme - we are likely to have some sort of communist idiot as our next President. President after that likely to be a right-wing extremist.
This girl probably will be elected President one day. Look out.

If our Government operated as intended, there would be proper checks on the Executive Branch. Sadly, Executive Orders are the new way to relieve Congress of any responsibility and allow a single person to dictate by fiat until challenged. The courts, though biased, appear to at least be holding the line.

We shouldn't turn into a place where every asinine political discussion heard on tv or radio is then brought here.
