The “Party of No”


Dems have begun again using this line, again in conjunction with elections, this time various off-year elections in various states and localities.

Let’s take a look at the concept of a party of “No” in American historical context, shall we?

The Bill of Rights to the Constitution of the United States of America:

1st Amendment: “Congress shall make no law…”

2nd Amendment: “…the right of the People… shall not be infringed.”

3rd Amendment: “No soldier shall…”

4th Amendment: “…shall not be violated and no warrants…”

5th Amendment: “No person shall…”

7th Amendment: “…and no fact tried…”

8th Amendment: “…shall not be required…”

9th Amendment: “… shall not be construed…”

10th Amendment: “…powers not delegated…”

American government was DESIGNED to be a government of “No.” That’s why it’s called a “limited government.”

Dems want an unlimited government, but let’s not pretend that wanting America to be a government of “Yes” is either a good idea or a historically accurate representation of the country in which we live.

About Alex Scipio

About Alex Scipio: Alex moved out of the People's Republic of California to the Free State of Arizona, finally tiring of the lack of the Bill of Rights, the overgrown idiocracy, and the catering to non-Americans & welfare recipients. He still wonders how America got from Truman, Eisenhower, and Daniel Patrick Moynihan to the Liberal and Conservative extremes so badly managing America today. And, yes, islam DOES need to be annihilated. And doing what he can to get folks away from the extremes of political life.
