Well friends, we’re almost there. We’re almost to the election and the subsequent election results. It’s been a ride hasn’t it? This year has been one for the ages, that’s the for sure. So, for today, I’m going to do things a bit differently.
I want to open up the discussion for you leading into the election. My goal is to answer, educate and help inform, especially when it comes to the Constitutional significance of something but it helps me to know what kinds of issues you need information about and what concerns you have.
Please comment, debate, share and discuss in the comment section below.
What are your greatest concerns leading into this 2020 election?
Are there specifics issues that you need Constitutional clarification about?
In what ways do you foresee the country changing based on either outcome and what might Americans do with such a change?
What’s the feeling around your city, town, state regarding the election?
And finally, leading into the election, what specific policies or issues do you need an “Is It Constitutional?” blog post about?
In these last days before the election, we really need to come together, help each other, educate each other and equip each other with as much knowledge, support and information as we possibly can. Who knows what may or may not happen next week but we need to be ready to face it head on armed with every bit of Constitutional information we can muster.
Please do comment below. I would like to see a healthy and vibrant discussion, indicative of a healthy and vibrant citizenry, looking to arm themselves with every bit of Constitutional knowledge possible… as if we only have a few weeks left with it and what we know of it will be all of it that is left.
Because you know what friends? These next few weeks may very well be the last few weeks of the Constitution.

"IS IT CONSTITUTIONAL"?
Great question but seeing we are facing an election on the 3rd of November I would like to take this is a slightly different direction.
Here we are faced again with the binary choice of two bad decisions but the miasma we are experiencing is the result of having to vote for these same two evils over a number of years. The problem isn’t that the American political system is broke, the problem is the system is FIXED. The problem as I see it is the two party system which IS NOT MENTIONED anywhere in the Constitution and which the founding fathers warned us against is ruining American democracy. It is no longer a government of the people, by the people and for the people nor do they need the consent of the governed. Instead it is two semi private entities who work behind the scenes having total control of the two parties, creating rules and regulations governing these parties and authorized to restrict entry barriers to keep out all competition. The only control government has over them is campaign finance laws and the mass of passive members have little to say about it except to shut up and vote what is offered. When you add in the administrative state which isn’t elected and answers only to these same two parties you understand why the system doesn’t work for a growing segment of our society. The two parties deal in aggrievement not achievements and no longer feel it is necessary to even offer a political platform. This is why we get populist demagogues whose empty rhetoric attracts disgruntled and desperate constituents.
We need to summon our better angels. America has always been great. The challenge is to live up to what makes her so and the choices we are given profoundly lacks that ability.
"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under it’s leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution."…………………………………John Adams
