Well, in fairness I also want to change/amend the constitution and radically transform the country. Of course I doubt that the Republicans in this convention would support scrapping the Senate and the 'winner take all' model of representatives, so....


Anyoneseemykeys

Why would they?


SilverSkink

Absolutely insane. Fitzpatrick is not a moderate.


MinimumGuarantee

Republicans: the constitution is the end all, be all Also Republicans: we must throw out the constitution


wmcguire18

Correct me if I'm wrong but proposing amendments isn't throwing out the constitution


[deleted]

What is stopping the Republicans from "proposing" these amendments now, when they don't have the majority in congress? Why do they need to wait until they have majority?


Siferatu

Calling a Convention now would hand all power over to the Democrats. If you love America, you don't want Democrats holding any power, let alone Convention power.

I love freedom of choice. Don't tell people what to want.


Siferatu

Freedom of choice inherently means the right to be wrong, hence the existence of the Democratic Party.


Th3V4ndal

See. It's that mentality thats destroying thus country. Let me guess. Everything you don't like is socialism and antifa... Fucking dork.


Siferatu

Wanting to improve America is destroying America? Must be a fascinating place inside your mind where up is down, women have dicks, and 2+2=7. Do us all a favor and keep it there.


Th3V4ndal

Nothing wrong with wanting to improve America, but you clearly don't. Why do you care about what genitals people have? Seems like a weird fascination you got there. Republicans nuked a plan to set limits on how expensive insulin can be. They tried like hell to block aid to veterans who were burned from tar pits. A whole shit ton of Republicans apparently have no problem with stealing a whole election because your chosen candidate didn't win. You're forcing women, who many times can't afford another child, to have a baby and then preventing any legislation to help said family at all. I'm not even a Democrat, and I can't stand Biden. But stop acting like Republicans are the only people who care about this country, when it's constantly shown that they don't, and by that token, it's clear that you don't either.


Siferatu

>Why do you care about what genitals people have? It's your crusade against truth that I care about, not the method or which group of people you use along the way.


Staubachlvr17

No you're absolutely correct


bontakun82

"if they aren't going to make the choices we want we'll just take away their right to choose"


RainyReese

I am so done with Republicans. So many people I know are sick of their bullshit, hate spewing, bigotry, racism, gun worship and now trying to regress and undo all the good the US came to with human rights.


tiredbrownbelt

And many people I know are sick of you leftists. What’s your point?


RainyReese

I'm not a leftist. You're a proven idiot by assuming that. Thank you for proving my point, though. The left has its own issues with the alt left but understand they are a minority who are loud and proud. They're still more like gnats unlike psychotic Republicans who believe in straight up made up stories with no facts based on reality in any fucking universe.

If i DoNt LiKe It, iTs LeFtIsT....

So, proposing amendments to the constitution to be voted on is a threat to democracy and destructive to the constitution even that's literally how you are supposed to amend it, but unelected bureaucrats issuing regulations and politicians issuing executive orders that are in direct opposition to what's written in the constitution is fine and wonderful and Democratic? Maybe you need better editors over at the Beacon


RDGCompany

Except this isn't proposing *amendments*. A constitutional convention can completely rewrite the US Constitution. They could strip the first 10 amendments, the Bill of Rights. Are you willing to risk that? The Theocratic Right Wing would love to repeal the 1st Amendment. They've said as much with their *Christian Nationalism * talk. They just succeeded in stripping civil rights with Roe v. Wade, next on their list is Oberefell v. Hodges. When will they stop? Loving v. Virginia?


Siferatu

>The Theocratic Right Wing would love to repeal the 1st Amendment Except it's Leftists dictating speech mandates


SuggestAPhotoProject

Which new speech laws are you referring to?


Anyoneseemykeys

Pretty much all the censorship on social media that was done in tandem with the biden administration. That’s not exactly legal.


SuggestAPhotoProject

So a private company made rules about using their companies services? That’s not the government. That’s not the Biden administration. That’s a private company, and Twitter didn’t break any laws by creating rules for their users. Do you really not understand that Joe Biden doesn’t control Twitter and Facebook? I didn’t think anyone could be this misinformed about the world, but here you are.


Anyoneseemykeys

Do you not understand that the government participating and working in tandem With a private company to censor Americans is illegal? Ie: the White House issuing guidance on how and when to censor Americans. I didn’t think anyone could be this misinformed about the world, but here you are.


SuggestAPhotoProject

This is hilarious. I’m sorry you don’t know the difference between private companies and government legislation. It’s not that hard of a distinction to understand, and I bet, through hard work and dedication, you too can learn this concept. In the meantime, feel free to show us how Joe Biden controls Facebook, Twitter, Truth Social, Reddit, etc. When you’re done, feel free to point to the laws that you think were broken. After that, kindly explain why the overwhelmingly Republican court system hasn’t struck down these illegal acts that you imagine happened. This should be funny, I can’t wait to see your “evidence.”


Anyoneseemykeys

Do you actually feel dumb or just pretend you’re not when your talking points are so easily contradicted by reality? https://www.wsj.com/amp/articles/censorship-coordination-deepens-11626474643


SuggestAPhotoProject

I don’t feel dumb at all, because I know the difference between a private company and government legislation. We’re all still waiting for you to tell us which laws were broken.

Twitter is under no obligation to carry the speech of a dimwitted manchild. They are not the government and are not obligated to allow whatever speech someone thinks they should. That same dimwitted manchild is also free to find an audience for his babbling. That his attempts to fail to find an audience is not the fault of Twitter. There is no conspiracy that Trump is a joke in the eyes of the majority of Americans. Despite how much someone may want to believe in the 'truth' of his babbling many, many others see it as garbage. If pushed by means of violence to make his vision a reality there will be violence shown in return. It will be costly and it will be painful. White conservatives will lose and they will lose things they will miss.

Go fuck yourself fascist scum


Staubachlvr17

Democracy is fascism now. Cool I didn't even say if I agreed with him (I don't. I don't want those amendments passed). I was simply talking about the procedure of how our government works You're what's wrong with reddit, and society. Go live in the mountains far away from everyone for the good of society

Truly horrifying
