Can you believe that at one time they used to read all bills aloud three times in the chamber before they could take a vote? HA! They'd still be reading Obamacare in the chamber and we could have saved ourselves a lot of trouble. And to think, the "rules" that the executive branch makes for the laws that Congress supposedly makes (which are actually drafted by lobbyists) are even longer. Gorsuch wants to overturn the Supreme Court Chevron decision that allows unfettered unconstitutional "rule" making, here's to hoping. All of it is by design and like everything, was predicted by the founders. James Madison Quote: "It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood."

Yep. Hard to believe they were ever that impeccable (even reading them aloud, so no one could claim dyslexia, or poor eyesight--kek!). I think Madison was also the one who warned against a 2-party system? Boy was he right! We reached the "little avail to the people" part long ago, imho.

Yeah it fucking blows my mind that they have the fucking gall to not only make laws so huge, but also to pass them without reading them. That's so nuts. They should have to read them aloud and should ahve to BE PRESENT for the entire reading to even vote. And there should be some sort of page limit. AND pirk should be illegal. If it doesn't directly related to the bill it's a different bill.

and the Cabal media has half the country thinking Trump's an idiot that doesn't read that much, just watches InfoWars and Fox News.

These people are stupid for trying to sell this lie.

Imagine the Cognitive Dissonance that half the county is going to be in soon.

It reminds me of that king at the Island of Create, who would make laws and hang them so high his subjects could not read them. But violating such law meant punishment none the less.

Welcome to the desert of the real

Ha, very much like it. With the volume approach, there are so many laws and regulations that you and I and everyone we know is in violation of something all the time. All they have to decide is who they don't like, and then find the law/reg that person is violating.
