The writers of Politico continue to prove themselves to be illiterates by stating, for all the world to see, that they have never read the Constitution.

Here’s a brief hint, Epstein: Stating that the Constitution should only be changed and can only be changed through the Article V method of doing so is neither un-Constitutional nor hypocritical.

Of course, you would know that if you’d ever learned to read, but it’s never too late to start.

Or are you suggesting that we should immediately scrap all of the Amendments to the Constitution as being “un-Constitutional?”

How very scholarly of you.

Seriously, Politico, can’t you find anybody with an actual measurable IQ to work for you?

Really?

Thatisall.

    Apparently not.

    I’m shocked!

    The Politico hacks didn’t mention Republicans wanting to toss puppies and kittens into blenders and
    sacrificing babies to Karl Rove in their terror inducing screed.

    Of course not: if they did possess a measure of lucid cognition, they wouldn’t qualify for the description “politico”.

    We are in the middle of a lawsuit here in Colorado.

    We have the rights of Initiative, Recall, and Referendum built into the state constitution. Using the right of Initiative, in 1992 we passed amendments to the state constitution called the Taxpayer Bill of Rights [TABOR]. I won’t go into the details, but the rate of growth in state revenues and expenditures is limited, all taxes have to be referred to the voters, and any extra money that the government collects above the limit has to be refunded to the taxpayers. We kind of like it, even though we had to pass it over the panicked opposition of both parties.

    The Democrats in Colorado have filed suit in Federal District Court to have TABOR declared unconstitutional. Their theory is that Article IV, Section 4 of the US Constitution guarantees every state a republican form of government. They state that requires only a representative form of government, and therefore and Initiative, Recall, and Referendum are forbidden; voiding TABOR and every act passed by IRR [and a lot have been here]. They explicitly state that the only role that citizens have is to vote to choose between the candidates put forward in the election.

    Not unexpected, from the National Socialist Democratic Workers Party.

    But before anyone starts feeling mushy about the Republicans in comparison ….

    The “leaders” of the Institutional Republican Party here, and about half of the Institutional Republican “leadership” in the Legislature have signed on alongside the Democrats in this suit.

    Both major parties want subjects. We are going to have to prove we are citizens. And free ones at that.

    POLITICO is just following their masters.
