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.
