John Kerry: Founding Fathers Would Be Against Balanced Budget Amendment ~

“As I have said in the past, the most compelling argument against this amendment doesn’t come from me or from anyone on the floor. It actually comes from the real experts, the people who framed the Constitution of the United States. If they were here on the Senate floor today, they would against this amendment because it violates the Constitution’s basic tenet which is major rule”


Wild Thing's comment........

He certainly does not know the history of our country.

The founding fathers were all about constraints on a limited federal government.

Any reading of the writings and letters of James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, John Jay, and Alexander Hamilton, the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Federalist Papers which they wrote, clearly describes how the founding fathers sought a limited federal government. Federalist 45 in particular, affirms and concludes this to be true.

Modern day liberals like Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts are revisionists and central planners that contort history and seek incremental empowerment of a federal government's majority rule over the people; not a government of, by and for a free people.

Liberty is just simply incompatible with the society that elitist liberals like Senator Kerry never stop telling us that they want.

The modern day liberals' agenda is not only directly opposed to liberty, but has no other means of being realized except through tyranny with their incremental central planning under the guise of compassion, equality and environmentalism all resulting in subsequent tyranny.

It is not progressive at all either, but clearly regressive, tired and old since time in memorial by proven past failures of human misery though a life by government ration.

If as you say, Senator Kerry, the founding fathers were here today on the Senate floor, they would be seated to the right with the conservative Republicans and furthest away from you, Senator Kerry.

"I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."

-Thomas Jefferson.

If the Founding Fathers were on the Senate floor, John Kerry would either have been beaten our shot.

Once again that traitorous, pompous, horse's ass, shows his vast lack of knowledge of this Great Nation's history.

I often think that people like Kerry, Reid, Schumer, just to name a few, make statements like this, just to get their name in the news.

It is really interesting watching these Liberal/Progressive fools make these grandiose statements and put downs of the Republican plans, while at the same time offering no solutions of their own.

"If you can't dazzle them with words, baffle them with BS", certainly seems to be the current Democratic theme for dealing with this crisis.

Kerry is nothing more than walking pig excrement with lips.

Huge thank you, your input means so much.

BobF is exactly right. The founders were about standards and constraints and would shoot our current central bankers for debasing the currency and shoot John Kerry for spending money. After all what percent of the money Kerry wants to spend is authorized in the Constitution. The tenth amendment say Kerry is in violation of his oath of office almost every day.
