It was back on October 30, 2008 when then-Senator and presidential candidate, Barack Obama said at a rally in Columbia Missouri, “we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Folks cheered, and no one said, stop the presses, what are you talking about? Indeed, five days later he was elected president, and reelected in 2012. For the next eight years we saw many a challenge to our fundamental rule of law, the United States Constitution. There were amendments to laws, not by legislative process, but by executive order. Obamacare, is but one example. We witnessed Obama enact an unconstitutional executive action that was outside his enumerated powers, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). We saw a Supreme Court “making law” when their enumerated power was to interpret law; Obergefell v Hodges, the same-sex marriage case. When Obama said that he had a pen, and a phone, and that he basically would rule, not govern, we heard not a peep from the liberal progressive media, who now talk about President Trump being an autocrat, or even a dictator.
The left is angry because they felt they were on a roll. They deceived the American people via identity politics, and elevated a tried and true leftist socialist to the highest office in our Constitutional Republic. They truly believed they would use the same tactics to elevate another into the office of the President of the United States of America (POTUS). However, someone threw a really big monkey wrench — oops, is that racist — into their plans: Donald J. Trump, along with the American people. Daily, now, the left displays their utter angst, and displeasure, and they want to get their plan back on track. What plan you ask? You know, the plan to fundamentally transform the United States of America, and undermining our constitution.
As reported by the NY Times, via a published opinion piece titled ‘Think the Constitution will save Us? Think Again’:
“Consider a few facts: Donald Trump is in the White House, despite winning almost three million fewer votes than Hillary Clinton. The Senate, the country’s most powerful legislative chamber, grants the same representation to Wyoming’s 579,315 residents as it does to 39,536,653 Californians. Key voting rights are denied to citizens in the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and other United States territories. The American government is structured by an 18th-century text that is almost impossible to change. These ills didn’t come about by accident; the subversion of democracy was the explicit intent of the Constitution’s framers. For James Madison, writing in Federalist No. 10, “Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention” incompatible with the rights of property owners. The byzantine Constitution he helped create serves as the foundation for a system of government that rules over people, rather than an evolving tool for popular self-government. Writers on the left such as Jacobin’s Seth Ackerman and the journalist Daniel Lazare have long argued that constitutional reform needs to be on the agenda. Even some liberals like Vox’s Matthew Yglesias rightly worry that the current system of governance is headed toward collapse.”
Just so you know, this opinion piece was authored by Meagan Day and Bhaskar Sunkara. Day is a staff writer, and Sunkara is the editor at a far left publication called Jacobin. This leftist piece is a great indicator of how we no longer have a system of education, but rather a system of indoctrination, one that does not teach civics, or any objective study on our constitution.
First of all, President Donald Trump sits in the White House because he more than won the requisite amount of 270 electors to become our 45th President. What these chuckleheads do not realize — actually, I think they do, they just refused to write it — was how our bicameral system of legislative governance was structured. The Founding Fathers were brilliant in that they did not seek populist rule, certainly not based upon a pure democracy, and focus on major population centers. Our House of Representatives is based upon population, hence the reason our constitution mandates a census every ten years, to track population shifts, and reapportion congressional districts.
However, the framers of our constitution, the aforementioned James Madison, along with John Jay, and Alexander Hamilton, did not want a unicameral legislative branch based upon population — that would not be “fair” to states with smaller populations. Therefore, the US Senate makes our states equal — now why wouldn’t any progressive socialist not like that — apportioning two senators for every state. Madison made the Senate the Upper Chamber, however, the power of the fiscal purse is granted to the people’s house, the House of Representatives, where all matters of taxation must emanate . . . a little constitutional issue for Obamacare, which originated in the Senate under Harry Reid.
The District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and other US territories are not States, period. If folks do not want to reside in the seat of our federal government, they can live in neighboring states, like Virginia and Maryland — which happen to have several of the most lucrative counties in the country. Coincidence?
In this article, these two deceptive leftists make the assertion that, “The American government is structured by an 18th-century text that is almost impossible to change.” Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot? There is a process for amendments to our Constitution in the Constitution, and it has been done 27 times, so what are they talking about?
“Yet whether or not the president knows it, the Constitution has long been venerated by conservative business elites like himself on the grounds that it hands them the power to fend off attempts to redistribute wealth and create new social guarantees in the interest of working people. There’s a reason we’re the only developed country without guarantees such as universal health care and paid maternity leave.”The US Senate makes our states equal -- now why wouldn't any progressive socialist not like that -- apportioning two senators for every state.

This what the progressive socialist left is talking about: they want a pure populist democracy that supports their ideological agenda. They want no possibility of any political opposition, and that damn pesky US Constitution stands in the way. This is why the leftists want no borders, no ICE, and our census to be based upon numbers — population — not citizens. The Founding Fathers created a Constitutional Republic and a representative Democracy. The left wants a dominant totalitarian state, and this is why they call themselves, Democratic Socialists . . . just like East Germany was known as the DDR — Deutschland Democratic Republic. Oh, yeah, the leftists are very good with deceptive language.
What is the fundamental transformation of the United States of America? This opinion piece by leftists at the NY Times just told us, “While preserving and expanding the Bill of Rights’s incomplete safeguards of individual freedoms, we need to start working toward the establishment of a new political system that truly represents Americans. Our ideal should be a strong federal government powered by a proportionally elected unicameral legislature.” The left wants America to be Californicated. After all, the authors of this piece started by stating they see no reason why Wyoming should be equal to California — based upon one criteria: population. This is the leftist strategy, control of population centers, and we see that here in Texas, and elsewhere in Red States. They want control of the major population centers, urban areas, and the rural areas of our great land are irrelevant, meaningless.
What the progressive socialist left wants is reflected in The Hunger Games series. The elites reside in, and rule from, the Capital, while the rest of the country, the districts, work to serve, and provide resources to the Capital — major urban centers, population centers.
Remember these words from this opinion piece in the NY Times, ” . . . we need to start working toward the establishment of a new political system that truly represents Americans. Our ideal should be a strong federal government powered by a proportionally elected unicameral legislature.” That is what the progressive socialist left wants, that is, their fundamental transformation of the United States. This opinion piece was written on August 9th, and, surprisingly, it has not received widespread recognition. Ask yourselves: are these the people, is this the mindset, is this the ideological agenda you want to dominate our country? These people are not just delusional, they are dangerous, and diabolical in their intentions. With the help of folks like George Soros, Tom Steyer, the social media tech giants, and incompetent politicos like Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and a host of others . . . they seek to obtain their demented scheme.
Here is the closing sentence from this opinion piece, “As long as we think of our constitution as a sacred document, instead of an outdated relic, we’ll have to deal with its anti-democratic consequences.” These progressive socialist writers have embarked upon the ultimate assault, redefine the US Constitution as being anti-democratic because it does not allow for the ideological domination, tyranny, of a pure democracy based upon population. This is what is being taught in our colleges and universities. This is why we need the Old School Patriots because we are in an ideological war.
I implore and challenge y’all: find the courage to push back against this tyranny. I ask you to share this missive widely, we must know who these people are, and what they intend. And never forget the words of Vladimir Lenin, “the objective of socialism is communism.” Not on my watch. What say you?
