How's that been working for us?
Marjie went way beyond just Q though. She talked about putting bullets in people. That should not be tolerated.
It's a R+27 district. We wouldn't be handing anything to the Democrats.
Ok. Thanks for the research. How do they get rid of her without the usual, "Your subverting Democracy" arguments?
Did she? I think that's disputed. Do you have a link?
If true, that's reprehensible. You can't talk like that.
I was wrong because she didn't say it but liked a post that endorsed execution of democrats. Marjorie Taylor Greene Signaled Approval For Executing Top Democrats Before Seeking Office
You say No. Again, you don't shitcan her because the Democrats are calling for it.
The voters can decide who represents them in the House. They don't decide committee assignments. The House decides that.
You strip her of the committee assignments. She's not getting expelled.
No problem here with that. Even the Democracy argument is a bit hollow. How far does it go? Elect a Nazi? Is it strictly the will of the people? I think we know that a straight Democracy is very problematic. Tyranny of the majority. Electing an extremist. You have to hope the country as a whole is not the average of two extremes but a instead a bell curve of rational people.
She still gets to vote in the house. Taylor Greene simply loses the ability to be a jackass during committee hearings.
I'm with Deez. Where do we get those Jewish laser beams? I want some.
Not the same.
Is that ^ really new math?
When Tenney’s sworn-in, the Democrats’ majority in the House will shrink to 221-212 over the Republicans.
Two vacancies remain, and they’re both in Louisiana. One is the seat that was held by former Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond, who joined President Biden’s administration last month. The other was the seat won last November by late GOP Rep.-elect Luke Letlow.
The new margin means the Democrats will only be able to lose four votes and still be able to pass a bill without help from House Republicans.
What would we say if Ilhan Omar had liked a post calling for the execution of Republicans?
It's will of the people to elect whomever they want. If they want to elect a Nazi, they can do that. If they want to elect a chick who believes in Jewish space lasers, they can do that. If they want to elect an impeached federal judge (Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Florida), they can do that. The people do get to decide who represents them on a base level - meaning they get to be members and vote on legislation on the floor.
However, the House has rules, leadership positions, and committees that give members significant power beyond their votes on the floor. The Constitution gives the power to structure those things to the House, not directly to the public. They decide who's on their leadership teams. They decide who sits on committees and who doesn't.
Is it sometimes appropriate for the House to actually override the will of the people and expel members? Yes, but that's generally done for misconduct, not goofy beliefs. It's hard to do it - requires a 2/3 vote, and other than during the Civil War, the House has only expelled 3 members.
Re: The Will of the People
"An oft-repeated Barry quote came in the aftermath of his victory in the Democratic primary election, in which he counseled those voters who opposed his mayoral campaign to "get over it."
Nothing has ever been done about Omar's anti-semitic tweets. How do you know she hasn't liked tweets calling for killing anyone?
I know. Omar is a dumpster fire.
Statement from a House member popular with some here
Who could disagree with her?
Who could think whst Biden did is good for America?
Is there any poster on here who could defend that?
We get it. They hate Trump and want to erase everything he did.
But is stabbing yourself in the eye really a good emotional outlet for that?
This is just more evidence that China owns Joe and the Ds.
I'm a Trump supporter. Never digged into what Qanon was all about, and don't care. None of my friends know of it either. Other than far out there **** (AOC says hello), what is it all about? I don't know, don't care.
Yet you state above the group is bordering on the size of Trump's base. You make little sense most of the time, to be honest.
This is coming from someone who earned their GED 8 months before being elected to office. I empathize with some of the concerns over higher education but voters please stop throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
The people elected David Duke to a state office full knowing he was a Klan leader. The will of the people is the will of the people. Sometimes they're idiots.
Yes they are. I was just reminded as I drove to take some supplies to my mom and my wife's son. They are out of water and heat. On the way, I'd say 95% of the pick-up truck drivers were aggressively driving as if it was mid-summer. We're talking about melting ice and snow. It was passable but these guys are so typical with their macho bravado.
As for the subject at hand, I believe a Democracy is so over-rated and it's comical how Democrats love to attack people over "our" Democracy. The populist argument is alive and well. They love a majority except when they don't.
White power is merely a voting majority if you want to simplify things. So a Democracy would a horror if they all voted for white interests. It's kind of funny.
