Trump + 38 States + SCOTUS (soon) = VoterID Time

Voter fraud is arguably the largest threat to our republic. Unless you want a federal voter registry – and I don’t, nor would the Founders – the only way to tackle the problem of illegal voting is to pass an amendment requiring State govt-issued VoterID in all elections.

The use of this can be indirectly mandated via threat of application of the 14th Amendment’s clause to limit representation (House seats, Electoral College votes) as a result of fraudulent voting if this ID is not used.

Amendment wording to require States to issue tamper-resistant photo IDs would prevent States from suing […]

Trump, VoterID and the Enumerated Powers

VoterID is an issue Trump can – and should – address immediately. As long as the Left is angry, let’s give them something to be angry about, and get it out of the way before we get any closer to the mid-terms than January 20, 2017.

The Constitution is crystal clear about voting:

The times, places and manner of holding elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such regulations, except as to the Places of choosing Senators.  –Article 1, Section […]

Post-S. Carolina View

Welcome to the post-South Carolina world.

Adult choices are between bad & worse. Rarely are they between good & bad. Voters looking for easy choices are going to be disappointed.

Let’s look at the remaining candidates.

Re: foreign policy: The American people aren’t going to allow the country to go non-interventionist. This is why Rand is out. The Right demands war all the time. The Left demands war when their guy is in power (Libya). They both demand overthrowing dictators they don’t like, and plunging nations into chaos and savagery (Egypt, Libya, Iraq, Syria…) or at least don’t complain about […]

Democrats, 2A & the Oath of Office in a Constitutional Republic

The campaign item question that intrigues me the most right now is guns.

The Second Amendment does not grant to Americans the right to keep and bear arms.

The Second Amendment PROTECTS that PRE-EXISTING RIGHT from government infringement. The Bill of Rights does not GRANT rights to Americans, it PROTECTS EXISTING rights from government interference.

Bluntly, the Constitution tells government to butt-out of anything to which the government is not granted authority.

And they’re told pretty bluntly to butt-out of our guns: “shall not be infringed.”

SCOTUS has held, multiple times, that the Second Amendment is the protection of an […]

SCOTUS to Constitution: DROP DEAD. GOP: Thank you, Sir, May I Have Another?

Once again the GOP demands federal government action on something not among the enumerated powers and so on which any federal response is irrelevant, gets the federal attention it demands, loses a skirmish, surrenders the battle — and then has no idea how to win an eminently winnable war.

And Americans continue losing the war on liberty being waged by our government against its citizens.

Whose side is the GOP on?

What are the “enumerated powers”? They are listed in Article One, Section Eight of our Constitution, and are the limits placed on the federal government by […]
