The ‘debate’ over popular vote vs. electoral college?
It shows there is no Trump mandate but really a distraction.
Early morning Tweet storms?
Shows a lack of self control and a very, very thin skin but also a distraction.
No. There are solid reasons why Donald J. Trump will not be a legitimate President.
Ignorance and on so many, many levels.
I don’t expect a President to be knowledgable about every topic, but Trump has shown a lack of knowledge that is dangerous.
When you lack even basic understanding of our Constitution and International laws, it becomes a danger to be attempting to make decisions that will have consequences.
And these are not isolated events.
Once is an occurance.
Twice is coincidence.
Three times is a pattern…….
Ignorance of ‘Use of Force’ and International Laws –
1. “Why can’t we use them (nuclear weapons).”
It’s called M.A.D. – Mutually Assured Destruction.
2. “We bomb the shit out of them (ISIS)”.
“Bombing the shit” implies massive civilian death and injuries – a clear violation of basic human rights under international laws.
3. “We take the oil”.
So the United States, since we have the military might and weapons, can now just plunder what ever we need from other Nations.
Again a clear violation of again basic international laws.
Ignorance of the Constitution –
4. “I will defend the Constitution even up to Article 12”.
There is no Article 12.
Just the 7 the Founding Father wrote and passed to form our Constitution.
5. “Anyone who burns the flag should lose their citizenship”.
The Supreme Court long ago included flag burning into a protected right of freedom of speech.
“Well, I happen to disagree with the whole concept of anchor babies. I mean, you look at anchor babies–”
“But that’s in the Constitution”.
“No, it’s not in the Constitution. If you read and if you look, and if you go to the real scholars, like different people that I can give you, they will tell you. Somebody comes over and they have a baby on our border and it happens to be on this side of the border, we’re not mandated to take care of that baby. You do not have to change the Constitution”.
The Constitution – 14th Amendment, Section 1-
““All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws”.
The Moral Clause – The Lack Of Character –
7. 7 Years of “Obama was not born in the United States”.
8. ‘Women need to be punished…..’
9. Insulting our military
10. Our Children Are Watching – Disrespect For Women –
