Majority Rule – Isn’t

leave a comment »

Well, the Ninth Circus Court of Appeals has decided that the people don’t have the right to decide for themselves what is constitutional.  A three-judge panel has decreed Prop 8 as unconstitutional because it supposedly treats homosexuals as a lower class of citizen.

Of course, homosexuals have always been pushing to have “class status” – but they want to be treated like some other minority class.  But that’s a different argument for a different day.

Decisions like these stand against everything that the Founders sought to avoid.  The idea behind a constitutional republic that is built around democracy is that majority rules.  Liberals are pretty quick to point that out when it suits them.  However, when it comes to California’s Proposition 8 which bans homosexual marriage by constitutional referendum, suddenly, it doesn’t matter what the people say.  Two judges have effectively overrode 52% of the Californian voting population.

Another sickening reminder that our country has deviated from what the Framers had intended – how a handful of people can defy the will of the people.  When the people decides to amend their constitution through a majority vote, the amendment becomes constitutional because it is part of the constitution.

Or can someone out there explain whether prohibition was constitutional when it was passed.  Or was its repeal constitutional?

This is what happens when the judiciary goes messing around with a constitution.

Planned Parenthood – It’s All About the Abortions

with 2 comments

I’ve regularly have written on The Rabid Conservative critically about the abortion issue.  And I’ve had people regularly comment about how wrong I am, while continuing to justify the slaughter of innocent babies while using the terms “women’s health”, “right to choose” and the like.

But the argument breaks down because the pro-choice (anti-life) and pro-life (anti-abortion) groups have no fundamental agreement on the definitions of life and moralities tied to it.  As I have said before, the pro-choice crowd simply does not believe that the fetus (latin: baby) is alive until it passes through the birth canal or is extracted via c-section and is born.  Up to that time, the legal status in the pro-choice eyes is that the baby is a “thing”.

But it goes deeper than that.  For the liberals, abortion is more akin to a religious conviction than it is a social matter.  It’s almost like what happens when so-called “infidel” dares insult Islam.

When the Susan B. Komen Foundation announced that it was going to stop granting funds to Planned Parenthood, the outcry was so over the top.  What gets me is since Komen is all about curing breast cancer and not so-called “reproductive rights”, Planned Parenthood acted just like how the labor unions react when a company decides to try and cut ties. It’s sickening how much Planned Parenthood extorts – it’s just like taking hostages.

  1. Planned Parenthood’s primary purpose in life is to provide abortions, despite the amount of cover PR that they do.  90% of all the women that use PP’s services are coming for abortion-on-demand.
  2. Planned Parenthood continues to extort around $350 million every year from the tax payers to fund all the other stuff so they can continue to make money on abortions without having to worry about overhead costs.  Overall, PP’s extortion’s pull in a billion dollars per year.
  3. The abortion crowd will continue to attack anyone who attempts to even remotely get in the way of making sure that abortion can continue unabated and fully funded.

How long are we going to allow the atrocious extortion and murder continue?
