Are They Really This Ignorant?

Congressmen without a clue. The congressmen who want U.N. observers in U.S. vote

"We are deeply concerned that the right of U.S. citizens to vote in free and fair elections is again in jeopardy," the lawmakers wrote to U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan.

The Democrats said they feared a repeat of the 2000 election, which was won by George W. Bush, a Republican, through the Electoral College count even though he lost the popular vote.

I have news for the congressmen. It could very well happen that the next president is elected by the Electoral College count even though he loses the popular vote. That is by design, that's the way our government works. The United States of America is not a strict democracy, it is a republic. I know that''s a little complicated but really, anyone taking part in the American political system should understand the difference. Anyone who has a job should know what their job is and what is required of them, is it too much to ask that of our political leaders?

Is it that they do understand the difference and don't care? Or are they trying to subvert our form of government? I have my suspicions.

Here is another take on it: Treason in Congress

These are people who have no concept of what makes America special in the world. They have no concept of the horrors perpetrated around the world by dictators and would-be dictators. They have no concept that America as a nation under God is and has been the great hope of the world.

Has Eddie Bernice Johnson ever read the Declaration of Independence? Has she ever read the Constitution? If she doesn't like our system of government here and thinks Kofi Annan and other foreigners have something better to offer, why doesn't she move out? Why does she flagrantly violate the Constitution she swore to uphold in an attempt to embarrass the country that has given her so much?
