LOL. Kentuck is at it again.
The Democrat party is THE PARTY OF SPECIAL INTERESTS. They just unsuccessfully try to hide it.kentuck (62,157 posts)
Any political Party that does not represent We, the People, is illegitimate. (Of course "we the people" is liberals.)
...and unconstitutional, by the most basic definition of the Constitution of the United States.
That is why the Republican Party is illegitimate. They are not a Party of the People. They are a Party of a few special interests that deceive many people into believing they are there for their interests. They should be banned as a political operation in this country, not by law, but simply by the lack of participation by their naive supporters.
The Democratic Party is well on its way to the same state of illegitimacy if they do not break their ties to the big corporations and their wealthy interests and return to their origin of the Party of the People's interests.
Any political Party that does not support the interests of the people is illegitimate. That is why our Constitution was written. For the People.
But unconstitutional? What constitution is he looking at?
Yep, feel good sentiment is all it is. Makes him look ignorant though.hughee99 (8,538 posts)
3. I'm having a little trouble seeing where political parties are unconstitutional
looking within the constitution itself.
I can create Hughee99's political party which represents me and only me, for the sole purpose of advancing my personal interests and it is both legitimate and constitutional. I can't think of a reason in the world why anyone other than me would join it, but that doesn't make it illegal either.
I love the sentiment, but made up law is not the basis for a sound argument.
In other words kentuck is having a temper tantrum. It isn't FAIR that Republicans have a say in government so therefore he wants to find a way to silence them so he can get his way!!kentuck (62,157 posts)
26. As I stated in my post...
"They should be banned as a political operation in this country, not by law, but simply by the lack of participation by their naive supporters."
That would be in line with our Constitution. It happened with the Whigs and it can happen again. They lost their legitimacy.
I do not believe the Republican Party represents the people at all. They get their legitimacy by deceit and naive voters, in my opinion. By our laws and elections, they are legal and legitimate.
Yes, they would say the same thing about us. I think they are wrong. They believe they are taxed too much and that government is too big.
