Like spoiled children

Unable to get their way playing by the rules, some leading progressives are now advocating not just banning the filibuster, but eliminating the Senate altogether.

Granted there’s a snowball’s chance of this ever happening, yet these left-liberal intellectuals are truly laying bare just how little they care for the constitutional order we’ve created here. They don’t want representative democracy; what they want is a form of Jacobinism.

Of course, this is an old theme in progressivism; Woodrow Wilson, our first progressive president, also was the first to speak disparagingly of the Constitution and considered representative democracy a phase whose time was passing. (Liberal Fascism, pp. 81-93)  FDR was so impatient with the Supreme Court that he wanted to subvert it through his court-packing scheme.

Still, they worry me.Nailbiting

      Was that Webb video yours? It was very good.

      And thanks for the link; I love Suess and that video should get a post of its own. 🙂
