This is kind of genius.

How baller would it be to see ballot questions done all across the country with the question of banning CRT for its unequal treatment of color?

Ideally that would be great and should be done. Realistically, it would pass, then an activist judge would slap it down, just like what happened in California when the citizens to define marriage between a man and a woman.

California also has a law saying you can't discriminate based on political ideology. Courts ruled this only applies to pro-gay sentiment.

Kentucky like 3 to 1 passed a marriage constitutional amendment that marriage was 1 man + 1 woman.

Doesn’t matter now.

Many are leaving the public schools when they don’t win the lotto for a charter, if they can afford to leave. If they’re still voting Democrat after that, they can’t be helped.

Yeah, philly said they had an issue with the machine that removed mail in ballots from the envelopes so counting them was delayed because they needed to open them by hand and said now it will take like 3 days. So they will just print how ever much they need to flip it to no

Now I'm not so happy. The margins on 1 & 2 are about 150,000 to the good right now. Given what happened in PA in November, that's nothing.

I don't know how "emergency powers'" throughout this country ended up becoming a dictatorship of governors. I always thought emergency powers were a stop gap until the legislatures got a chance to meet and democratically decide by legislation and votes what to do about it. At most, emergency powers should last about two weeks, tops. At that point, the congresses of each state should have taken over and discussed, debated and proceeded in such a way that constituents would have some input via representations. I have no idea how so many Americans could just all nod and say yep yep to themselves when Governors just flat out took over everything, cut legislatures out and started arresting and fining citizens that disagreed.

Our system works because of the consent of the governed. It does not work when the governor just flippin' decides things in a vacuum based on what some guy that governor appointed said crap in the governors ear. That's how dictatorships and monarchies work - despots, tyrants and dictators use a bunch of supposedly "knowledgeable" people to advise them. There's a reason why those types of supposedly knowledgeable people have been called magicians, wizards and "holy men" throughout the ages" and looking at Fauci and others who make up these advisory councils and cabinets, you can see why. Their advice and pronouncements are every shifting. Their advice seems mostly arbitrary. They just say whatever crap seems popular with the governor and the snobby class at even given time. They don't deal with those who question, dissent or disagree, they just flippin' criticize them, disparage their motives and label them the enemy despite no reason to do so. They make up crap just to oppose those who disagree with them. That's why those old monarchical and aristocrat systems kept humanity stupid, poor, illiterate and isolated for millennia - because education, technological advancement, losing control scared the shit out of those with power and most especially, their magical advisors. Without the "special erudite insight" of the magical advisory and administration class, that entire snobby class are just a bunch of do nothing, bloviating mutton heads.

yuge_covfefe 4 points ago +4 / -0

+1 for consent of the governed, but consent of the governed works both ways. The govt will try to get away with as much tyranny as they can, it is their nature. Consent of the governed means there's a point where people say "no more". Think of it this way. The Constitution is a piece of paper, it has no guns, it won't tar and feather anybody, it won't form an angry mob and storm the castle doors. It's just a contract, and if a contract isn't enforced then it may as well not exist. Until people are willing to enforce it, the govt will do whatever the hell they want. Because until the people say "NO", the govt will assume (correctly) "YES". They have our consent by default, disgusting as that sounds, because they are willing to grab power and we're the only ones who can slap their hands away. The Constitution may say otherwise but until people are willing to give them a reminder (and it seems we have a way to go yet before that'll happen), it can simply be ignored.

(There's the meme about not advocating violence - I'm really not, here. I think we need to pursue all peaceful avenues, and I think we still have a few left to try. But when those run out, that's when "consent of the governed" needs to kick in. Or rather, our consent be revoked.)

Smurfection 3 points ago +3 / -0

I don't think the people are really consenting to the governors taking all that power that they have taken. It's mostly that one team, the Democrats, want their Democrat governors to become tyrants in order to punish Republicans and conservatives. I don't think Democrat partisans can even fathom the idea that the same tyrannical powers they are endowing governors with by default now, can be used against them in the near future. btw, it's not even really "the people" that are allowing the governors to do this because Republicans aren't. Republican states have consistently being pushing the states that are red to open up, lift mask mandates, open up schools, open up businesses etc. It's a power struggle in the red states and I don't see Republicans surrendering there. IN blue states however, there's not any real organized pushback, mostly because as soon as people start organizing, the entire Democrat apparatus from elected officials, courts, law enforcement, thugs in streets and screaming karens descend on those who are organizing. I really don't know what to say about that other than, It may be that New York and California really are despotic states now.

4
yuge_covfefe 4 points ago +4 / -0

Yeah but don't mistake me here, I'm not saying that people are totally fine with being oppressed. My point was that if tyranny is left unchecked, and if it really has infested every level of a state (legislature, executive, judiciary), the buck stops with the people. If the people are unwilling to defend their rights, and the state decides they're going to trample those rights, then they have the "consent" of the people by virtue of those people bending over and taking it.

They can fake the ballots all they want, hide the counting, have Rs and Ds playing on the same team, tell everybody to wear 15 diapers on their face, and generally ruin the system. I doubt very many people are "fine" with all that. But are they willing to allow it to continue? So far the answer's been yes, and THAT is consent.

Again I'm not saying we are to the point where open revolt is required (the PA ballot results look promising for example), although I am a little surprised we haven't seen a few armed and angry mobs breaking down the doors of certain governors' mansions by now. My point though is theoretically, if the entire system has become despotic, it will ultimately be the people -- not politicians, not judges, not cops, but average people -- who decide to let that despotism continue, or not.

2
Smurfection 2 points ago +2 / -0

I do agree with you on that and I hope and pray that it won't come to that. That sort of thing rarely ushers in anything better. On the other hand, our Revolution was atypical and unique that not only did it created something superior to Britain and the European powers in all ways, but it became a blue print for the entire world to demand more say in their own respective governments.

2
yuge_covfefe 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yeah, all we can do if it does come to that is pray that the precedent set by our own Revolution will be used as a blueprint by ourselves going forward. You're right, it's hard to predict what comes next, that is why this is such a dangerous game they are playing with us. They're gambling we'll never react in the first place, or that if we do we'll lose. Even the last and most extreme peaceful step we could take - a convention of states - could have dire, unexpected outcomes even without bloodshed.

On the flip side though. If they're right, we never fight back or are incapable of doing so, and we live to see the final erosion of our rights under a despotic system, in that case have we not already lost our country, slowly over time, and just never realized it?

"... I agree to this Constitution, with all its Faults, if they are such; because I think a General Government necessary for us, and there is no Form of Government but what may be a Blessing to the People if well administered; and I believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a Course of Years, and can only end in Despotism as other Forms have done before it, when the People shall become so corrupted as to need Despotic Government, being incapable of any other." -- Benjamin Franklin's final speech in the Constitutional Convention.

I know this right now, my own government is a far bigger domestic threat than any foreign threat can possibly be. I don't fear Islamic terrorists exploding dirty bombs in even fifty of our biggest cities. We had our wake up call on 9/11. I moved out of the city so not my problem anymore.

I don't fear every state getting nuked from China or Russia. So what? The chances of it hitting me and mine are really remote and I don't believe the fall out is nearly the threat that the scare mongering over nukes makes it out to be. I've already died from Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima.

Heck, I don't even give a darn to some degree if the ChiComs either because they only have as much power of the U.S. at this point that we give to them and it's the lefties and Democrats giving them all the power.

What I do fear is the insanity, the incompetence, the hatred and the moral self righteousness of the Democrats and the woke left. They are exactly the type of people who will all do their part in a Stalinist or Nazi type government to see the trains run on time and they don't care who is on them, where they are going, what's happening or the destruction of humanity. They sincerely don't give a damn about human life. What kind of sick people are they when the prioritize using the wrong pronouns over human life? They let criminals out of prisons but put political demonstrators in solitary confinement without bail, lawyers or trial? That's what I fear and yeah, when it comes to it, it comes to it. If my back is up against the wall, I'm not going to wait around ...................

I would argue the question about discrimination was a win too. The language was already there but it’s now more broad so that anyone, of any race, is protected and can take legal action, if justified. It’s not an equity issue. At least, from my understanding.

Donttreadonme16 21 points ago +21 / -0

From my understanding, these protections were already in place for everyone. This ballot measure just adds language to make it more ambiguous... and I’m never a fan of ambiguity

nachosamplerREBORN 4 points ago +4 / -0

That was mine too. But I also read several groups were concerned because the language would provide more of an opening for a white person to sue for discrimination. I hate these ambiguous laws too. Nobody should be discriminated against by race or gender, but it should apply equally.

Need4Pede 3 points ago +3 / -0

I hear you. I live a few counties West of Philly. It's still a great place, but the rats are leaving the city and my county used to be SOLID RED, now it's Pink..ish. Even crossing a few miles in the county is a big difference. Lots of retirees in my county and were hit hard from the fuckup in retirement homes. Tell me that wasn't intentional to weed out old conservatives. we got 73% on the YES/YES amendments. The last 2 questions had people really confused. They campaigned on vote YES YES YES. Which, made people think they should have voted YES on the 3rd and in return YES on the last question. They should have been more clear on signage because we have A LOT of those yard signs all over.

1
ACActual 1 point ago +1 / -0

The 3rd question was something about adding the word "Equity". FreePa believed it to be a Trojan Horse for Illegal Immigrants. I told everyone to vote YES YES NO NO.

GravityBounce1976 3 points ago +3 / -0

I took at look at the ballot questions. There appears to be four. The first two limited power of the executive, and passed with a slim margin. Question 3 changed from "no discrimination against ANY person" to "no discrimination because of race or ethnicity" which seems to me bad, because now that opens the door to discrimination for other reasons, like political views. The last question now seem it will use debt to fund local services, which are already funded through taxes. How much are PA local governments spending where their local taxes don't even pay for their services. You know this is all going to just fund their pensions.

Texas has a bill languishing in the house committee, chances are it will never advance, HB 1406 (I think) that limits the power of the governor to enact emergency measures without act of legislature.

Sadly I think it will die in committee, probably why Abbot has been stepping back the covid crap.
