Do Democrats Believe in Democracy?

Where did Harry Reid go to school? Didn’t he have a civics class of some sort? How does one get to be in the Senate when one doesn’t understand the basic framework of our constitutional system of checks and balances? Congress can not overturn a decision of the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is the final judge of the constitutionality of a law. Even if there were enough votes to pass your bill it would have been overturned by the Court mostly likely by a 9 to 0 vote.
The attempt to overturn the Hobby Lobby decision should be seen exactly as it is, a blatant attack on the power of the Supreme Court and a rejection of our constitutional system of checks and balances. The founders of our country created this system to protect us from the tyranny we experienced under the British. Ironically, the Democrats picked the same month we celebrate our independence to attack our system of government. Harry Reid thinks he and his fellow democrats should be the final judge of the Constitution. Soon we will have a president who believes he is the final judge. Maybe we will stop having elections every 4 years. Is this what we fought for in the Revolution? Is this what over a million have given their lives for and millions more have risked their lives?
If Congress disagrees with the Court there are two things Congress can do. One is to pass a new law following the guidelines of the Court. The other is to impeach the judges but Lord help any representative who votes for impeachment just because he disagreed with the Court’s decision. The American voters won’t stand for it.
Why is it that the Democrats feel so free to take away the freedoms so many have fought and died for? Our rights and system of government have come at a great cost, the blood of our soldiers. We dishonor all those in uniform and all those who served so valiantly in the past by ignoring the Constitution they defended. We owe it to those who sacrificed everything not to tolerate tyranny.
Our soldiers believed in the democratic system. We have to ask if the Democrats believe in democracy.
