If he's right, then literally, the fate of the Republic is at stake. I'm hoping he's wrong. In "Liberal Facism", Jonah Goldberg talks about totalitarian aspects of Liberal ideology...and now, we have mainstream liberal politicians calling for dictatorship. Congress isn't broken, what's broken are Liberal's desires to dictate what you can and cannot do, not just publicly, but inside your home.
It's bad enough that on average, every single American commits (however unknowingly) 3 serious felonies a day...but, now, leading liberals are calling for the suspension of the Constitution and rule by executive fiat. What's next? Punitive arrest of those who oppose the will of The One? This is a very slippery slope that we're heading for...
UPDATE: Jackson is being pounded on both the left,
Debbie Halvorson, his likely 2012 primary Democratic challenger, said their shared district’s residents do not want “a do-nothing politician who is looking to get a quick headline.”and the right,
“In Rep. Jackson’s entire congressional career, he has never introduced a single jobs bill,” Halvorson said. “Now, he’s calling on the president to suspend the Constitution? As a representative of the people, you don’t give up when you hit a roadblock and throw the Constitution out the window — you keep working to get something done.”
Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh issued a similarly harsh rebuke. On his Facebook page, Walsh wrote, “Jesse Jackson Jr., you asked Obama to declare a jobs state of emergency, bypass Congress, and take action by himself? If you want a dictator and state run jobs program, you might be happier living in North Korea with Kim Jong Il.” “Contact my district office if you need to expedite your passport,” Walsh snarked.Sometimes...being stupid just doesn't pay.
