Drink every time any candidate breaks out into a coughing fit. (one drink per instance) Drink at any remark that gets booed. (counts for moderator remarks too) Drink every time the moderator “fact checks” a statement by one of the candidates.
When the Constitution gets to the point where it can mean anything the justices need it to mean, it will at once come to mean nothing. We will be living in a post-constitutional America. The three Supreme Court justices that our next president is expected to appoint, if they are liberal, activist judges, will be more than enough to effectively end the era of the United States as a constitutional republic.
Keep the Constitution alive in your hearts- soon that may be the only place it will have any meaning.
Are there issues facing this country that Kaepernick, his fellow athletes, and the rest of America should rightly speak out about? Of course. Protesting by taking a knee during the national anthem is their unquestioned right. The irony is the country that offers them that right ought to be respected for it. A further irony is that these professional athletes are rewarded for work in their chosen professions at a level that is far disproportionate to that of those who protect their rights. Their chosen form of protest does not show respect; it shows a fundamental misunderstanding of why Americans honor their country by standing for the Star Spangled Banner. The object is not to show total approval for their country, but to honor what it has been at its best, the great accomplishments of its people, and what it strives to be.
Landscaping lead me to my next job, one to provide income during the winter months. It was to clean out vacant houses. That was perhaps the hardest, filthiest work I’ve ever done. You don’t want to know some of the conditions me and my coworkers had to work in at times. My coworkers by the way, were all American. I guess we didn’t get the memo that this sort of work could only be done by migrants or illegal immigrants.
I'm not his biggest fan, but Trump showed me something Wednesday. He showed me that he's willing to do the hard things, he's willing to put his candidacy on the line. Meanwhile, Hillary has been MIA for most of the past fortnight. She hasn't even gone to Louisiana after both Trump and President Obama went. Baton Rouge should be mostly dry by now, will she ever go?
