The "Republic" has been effectively destroyed by the abolition of state sovereignty. A republic is a form of representative democracy. What we actually have is an oligarchy which is more like a monarchy or dictatorship than it is like democracy. Lifetime appointments to the SCOTUS is a big reason for this. It was a catch-22, on the one hand we certainly can't have the high court mired for fear of losing their jobs, on the other, they gather so much power during their lifetimes with virtually no accountability that they can completely undermine the constitution. Which they have for decades.
Well... We used to. Now it seems we have a elitist playground where we are told what is good for us.

Hannity is a narcissistic ass; I haven’t watched him in at least 10 years. Complete jerk, dirtbag. The end.

Let’s be very clear; “democracy” may have been preserved, but NOT the Republic. We don’t have a Democracy, we have a Republic. We need to force the dialogue to go back to the original words, because to leftists, this headline sounds like a good thing.
HERE, HERE!!! (or hear, hear...lol). well said.
The linda greenhouse remark was simply a snarky gloat...nothing more.

Let’s make this simple; this school is in The United States of America, so celebrate the holiday’s that the majority of AMERICAN’S want to celebrate. If you don’t want to have your child celebrate a holiday, they are excused from school that last HOUR of classroom time.
The PC culture is killing us. People used to come here wanting to be like us, but now, we’ve watered things down so much that we don’t even recognize ourselves.

What a freaking sissy la-la. Can’t handle the heat; real substantive questions, so he calls Megyn Kelly a “lightweight”. He’s just a schoolyard bully.

WHY are we giving Al Jazeera ANY space on the Blaze?? Let’s interview the guy ourselves!
You are not missing anything. They are talking, but not really saying anything -- just mumbling incoherently and talking in circles.
here.. let me help you.. " DUH.. ..DOH.... I dunno..... no freakin Idea... what ?? um... er uh.... rich guys.... well... "" that's about the extent of these leftist superior intellectuals responses to a VERY SIMPLE QUESTION !!!

It’s maddening enough that he read this to the children, he ought to have been fired; this should have been a permission slip event, but HOW does a man who cannot form a correct sentence become a teacher???? “When me and my partner sat down…” REALLY???!!!
We’re so hosed.

Where were you Bill when the initial warning about Obama was shouted from the rooftops by Glenn and others? Oh yeah, sitting down for a cozy and banal interview and then talking about what a “nice guy” the Marxist is. Bill, you are partly to blame for this.

Without the “moral and religious people” that Adams said were needed for the Republic to work, the Convention of States is a very bad idea. Very bad.
Absolutely concur. Couple that with the IDIOCRACY we are today compared to the wise Founders...there would be debates on wearing underwear on the outside vs inside our pants.

@GlennBeck I’m glad the feud is over, but Levin is wrong on Article V; please don’t sign on to it. If we had a nation of virtuous people, maybe it could work, but let’s restore what we have; RESTORE, not replace.

Glen! Glen! Glen!!! You almost have it right, but not quite!!! The Declaration of Independence “dictates our rights”, the Constitution codifies them into laws!!!! PLEASE correct this!!! It’s bad enough that Mr. Wall is so ignorant, don’t spread it!!
The Declaration of Independence declares our rights not dictates them. The Declaration justified the independence of the United States by listing colonial grievances against King George III, and by asserting certain natural and legal rights, including a right of revolution.
ImJetta you can't even spell his name correctly, thus anything you say is moot.
No the Bill of Rights dictates our rights sweetie. The Bill of Rights are Amendments to the Constitution not the Declaration of Independence. You apparently flunked American History. The Declaration of Independence is when we told King George to go F himself. Where new Americans fought for Independence from England.

Excellent, but sad. This will be the norm before it’s all over.

“I didn’t want anyone’s children hurt”; funny, that’s what he SAID he wanted. Did he want it, before he didn’t want it? Or did he not want it before he wanted it?

I’m sorry, but ANY teenager comes in my store and buys $350 worth of merchandise is going to be scrutinized; that being said, if they showed ID, and it matched, and the photo was the kid in question, I can’t see what the big deal is. I am HAPPY when they ask to look at my ID to see if it’s really me using the card!

It’s not only the “one size fits all” becoming valuable that’s no good, but we’re also paying the elitists to indoctrinate our kids while we go into debt for it.
Well done Mr. Rowe, thank you!
