If you're upset about the recent overreaching decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court, the Christian satire website Babylon Bee has a solution: vote Republican even harder next time.
Here's an excerpt from their (hilarious) article:
U.S.—Conservatives have been betrayed by Republican-nominated judges yet again. But they have a plan to fight back: they're going to vote Republican even harder next time.
"I'll show the Republican Party a thing or two," growled long-time Republican Bud Harper of Plano, Texas as he cleaned his AR-15. "If they can't get their act together, I'll go right to the ballot box and vote Republican again. Hard."
"If this doesn't show them we mean business, nothing will." He then shot his AR-15 into the air as a warning shot to the Republicans about his plan to keep voting Republican no matter what.
This article is satirical, of course, but like all satire, it makes a serious point. We can't trust Republicans to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government.
We can vote for politicians who promise to pursue limited-government principles and shrink the jurisdiction of the federal government. We can support judges who say they'll adhere to the text of the Constitution and not abuse their power. But when the rubber meets the road, almost all of these politicians cave to the will of D.C. politics.
There's only one real solution to federal overreach, and it doesn't come from Washington. An Article V Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments.
These amendments -- once ratified by 38 states -- can effectively and permanently limit the size and scope of the federal government. They can reverse the last 100 years of judicial activism and give the states a real recourse when the Supreme Court oversteps its bounds and legislates from the bench.
But there's more. A Convention of States can also mandate term limits for federal officials (including SCOTUS justices) and impose fiscal restraints on Congress.
Millions of frustrated Americans from both sides of the aisle have voiced their support for the Convention of States Project. These men and women are tired of overreach, waste, and abuse in the federal government, and they want more control over their lives and the future of our country.
