This can’t be the Tea Party because the Tea Party is just Taxed Enough Already mad about OUTOFCONTROLSPENDING and the DEBTDEFICIT. //

Rather disturbing that all these state constitutions that still officially require religious tests, even if they aren’t enforced.

Well, this sounds like “small government” to me.

The teatards need to stop flaunting their pocket constitutions and actually read the fucking thing.

Rep. Ford’s full-time job: the owner of two North Carolina Gospel music radio stations.

No conflict of interest there. In a sane state, he’d be facing a recall, at the least.

Their constitution is just like their bible; it says whatever they want it to say. Why bother to read it? It will just confuse them.

Hey, gang: check the byline on the original article. This is from April. IIRC, the bill died fairly quickly. I think even most hardcore conservatives knew this would never fly.

Still, it speaks volumes about today’s conservatives that this sort of thing would even see the light of day.

Yeah only concerned about fiscal issues huh Tea Party, keep on telling yourselves that.

That took longer than I thought it would.

This bill may be dead, but that’s not going to stop them form trying again and again and again until they set up their theocratic state within a state.

These people are dangerous, very dangerous.

I really expected it to be South Carolina, not North Carolina, that tried this. It didn’t work in 1834, it didn’t work in 1860. For that matter, it didn’t work when Ohio tried to tax the federal bank (1819) or when various southern states tried to void desegregation and integration of schools (1950s).

The simple fact is that the Tenth amendment applies ONLY when the federal law doesn’t exist. That’s the essence of the supremacy clause, of the document of which North Carolina was a ratifying state.

How’s that “rebranding” effort going for ya?

Heck, if I was a Democratic Strategist I’d be quote mining those nutters in NC and Texas for all they’re worth.

14 Eclectic Cyborg  Tue, Jul 9, 2013 9:19:36am

Wait, if the 1st amendment doesn’t apply to the states, just who in the heck does it apply to?

As originally passed, only Congress. It took the 14th amendment (and some supreme court decisions) to make the first amendment binding on state governments.

This is relevant again in relation to the news that the same people are now trying to limit abortion. It clearly demonstrates their prime directive at the least.

Once again, the people who claim to love the constitution prove they never read the damn thing. Teabaggers oppose raising taxes because government spending is the root of all evil. And they fight that evil by wasting tax dollars on publicity stunts that, even if it were to pass, would just get struck down by a federal judge or SCotUS anyway. After all, its not a lawmaker’s job to know the law.

/do I need to?

Once again, I advocate for mandating high-school level comprehension testing for anyone running for public office. People this f***ing ignorant shouldn’t have the power to make laws.
