The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775


"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

They Just Rewrote The Constitution And You Had Nothing To Say About It

Here's the Nonsense:  The Senate has forced Obama into a corner on the Iran nuclear deal and it will protect us from Obama making a deal that would endanger the world.

Here's the Horse Sense:  The Senate action actually helps Obama and weakens the constitutional protections we have against the president making a bad deal.  Once again, the GOP have stabbed the American people in the back.

It's said you should keep your friends close and your enemies closer.  Given the actions of the GOP*, the question is raised as to whether that means you should keep the Democrats or the GOP closer.  The violation of trust the electorate has experienced from the GOP is beyond anything most could have imagined.  And now we have more proof of their disdain for the voters and intentions to deceive.  
*(By "GOP" I'm referring to the establishment Republicans who control the party, not the minority of Republicans in political office who are true conservatives.)

The GOP are either joining in with the Democrats to intentionally destroy the republic that America's founders created, or they are ignorantly allowing it to slip away because of their spinelessness. However, given their actions it appears they are not ignorant, they are complicit.  

Truly Benjamin Franklin's statement to Mrs. Powel was correct when he informed her that the founders had given America a republic as our form of government if we can keep it.  And right about now it seems apparent that we can't.

As we watch our government in action, horrendous things continue to happen.  WND reported this past week that the Senate rewrote the treaty provision of the Constitution to make it look like they're doing something to stop Obama on his Iran nuclear deal, but in reality it makes it virtually impossible for the president to be stopped.  

Until this revision treaties had to be approved by a ⅔ majority of the Senate.  Now, with the changes ushered in by the GOP, instead of having to get a ⅔ approval, it now takes a ⅔ vote to stop the president.  So, in other words, the president only needs ⅓ + 1 vote to be safe from the Senate being able to stop him.  

This means that Obama will easily get what he wants, which is a nuclear Iran.  That, many experts believe, has already set the stage for a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. 

So, once again the Republicans are selling out the voters.  It's bad enough when they won't take a stand, but they're actually helping the president make an unstoppable deal with Iran.  

This comes down to far more than ignorance on the part of the GOP.  This is, once again, an action that points to the GOP being complicit with the president in his actions.  

Are the GOP's actions because they, too, don't care about arming an evil regime like Iran with nuclear weapons?  Are they because the GOP doesn't really care about starting a nuclear arms race in the Middle East?  Are they because regardless what the GOP says, they are like Obama in their hatred for Israel and want to facilitate an attack from Iran?  

The bottom line is that, as I've said so many times before, the establishment GOP are not your friends.  They must be stopped and the last chance to do it is in the primaries for the 2016 congressional and presidential elections.  That is when the candidates are chosen for the general election.  With all that has happened and is happening it is very clear that 2016 is pivotal for freedom in America.  

Those who think they can just sit home and not vote are simply voting for the destruction of our nation.  The ability to change America through voting will not exist as we know it after that.  Too many changes are being made to our laws, and when laws are violated by the government the Republican leadership are not standing up against it.  We do not have a party that will stand up for the Constitution anymore.  

Whether you want to hear it or not, it is the voters fault.  The American voters have allowed this to happen and elected and reelected the politicians who have taken us down this path.  It is time to get involved now to impact the 2016 primaries.  That's the only time you have a chance to decide who will be the candidates in the general election.

The primaries aren't very far away.  It's time to get involved so that the will of the American people can be forced upon the Republican leadership and give us truly conservative candidates for the Senate, House, and the White House in 2016.
