It’s almost a month past the election and liberals are still are protesting Trump’s presidential election.
First, they took to the streets, rioting, burning buildings, and even killing people!
Then they demanded a recount, along with Jill Stein. Hillary Clinton got on board and democrats raised millions to implement the recount, which at this point has not the changed the vote tally much at all.
Liberals also stirred the pot with the Electoral College. They demanded the Electors go to bat for anyone rather than Trump. They insisted this was in the name of democracy, as Hillary won the popular vote, but lost the Electoral College vote.
They moaned that the Electoral College was unfair and outdated.
No surprise, but they were screaming against the Electoral College for doing exactly what it was intended to do, give a voice to all the States, and not just the States with heavy populations.
But no matter, that’s not convenient to note, so they ignore it.
Now, it seems there is a new game in town, according to WND.com
Mark Weston, author and columnist for Time magazine, is suggesting this:
“The approximately 65 million Democrats who voted for Hillary Clinton should pledge that in the future if a Republican wins the presidency with fewer votes than a Democrat for the third time in our era, we won’t pay taxes to the federal government. No taxation without representation!”
Interestingly, Mark continues:
“If the Republicans won’t help amend the Constitution so that America can resume being a democracy, then Democrats, lacking the representation that supporters of a future popular vote-winner ought to have in the executive branch, should not submit to paying taxes to the federal government.”
Weston, in suggesting that 65 million Americans shouldn’t pay taxes because they disagree with who was elected, is absurd. When Obama was elected, millions weren’t represented in our views.
Millions didn’t consent to Obamacare being shoved down our throats.
Millions didn’t consent to Planned Parenthood using our tax dollars for abortions.
Millions didn’t consent to scores of other policies Obama implemented.
We didn’t mutiny. Rather, we demanded our representatives vote differently.
Weston also shows his ignorance of the entire system of American government by saying “so that America can resume being a democracy”.
America is not a direct democracy. Our founding Fathers didn’t give us one. In fact, they put the Electoral College in place exactly for that reason.
America is a Democratic Republic. We elect representatives who we expect to govern in a way that represents all of us.
This prevents mob rule. This prevents the sanctuary cities like Los Angeles and New York for speaking for all of us.
Millions of us don’t want illegals coming and milking the welfare state.
Millions of us want to protect our homes by bearing arms.
Millions of us want to undo the damage of Obama wasting our tax dollars on programs that hurt America.
Ironically, Weston is saying millions of Democrats should stop paying taxes if they lose again, but one has to already being paying taxes in order to stop.
The millions of Democratic voters who live on the welfare state and vote for people who will continue to give them a free ride already don’t pay taxes.
They’re already getting that free ride on the backs of hard-working conservatives who do pay.
