Has Tucker Carlson ever read our Constitution? Maybe not!

Tucker Carlson seems to be giving in to the socialist mantra of a “living wage”.

Last night Tucker seemed to be promoting the socialist nonsense of a “living wage” while condemning Amazon’s owner.

Everyone working for Amazon, or any other company, are blessed to have the right to personally negotiate the value of their own labor, while business owners likewise have the right to negotiate what wage will be paid for a particular job being offered.

If a person is not earning a “living wage” at their current job, the solution is to find an additional job or increase their skills to a level which will demand a “living wage”.

Tucker Carlson’s inner socialist tendencies seem to be getting the best of him by attacking the owner of Amazon rather than the problem, the problem being unskilled employees being delinquent in improving their skills, or taking on an additional job in order to earn a living wage.

Instead of Tucker attacking Amazon’s owner because some employees are receiving food stamps, why not attack government force being used to provide government cheese?

"Under a just and equal Government, every individual is entitled to protection in the enjoyment of the whole product of his labor, except such portion of it as is necessary to enable Government to protect the rest; this is given only in consideration of the protection offered. In every bounty, exclusive right, or monopoly, Government violates the stipulation on her part; for, by such a regulation, the product of one man’s labor is transferred to the use and enjoyment of another. The exercise of such a right on the part of Government can be justified on no other principle, than that the whole product of the labor or every individual is the real property of Government, and may be distributed among the several parts of the community by government discretion; such a supposition would directly involve the idea, that every individual in the community is merely a slave and bondsman to Government, who, although he may labor, is not to expect protection in the product of his labor. An authority given to any Government to exercise such a principle, would lead to a complete system of tyranny." See Representative Giles, speaking before Congress February 3rd, 1792

The unavoidable truth is, the Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’, Andrew Gillum and Ayanna Pressley’s socialist plan for “free” college tuition will be paid for by taxing millions of college graduates who worked for and paid their own way through college and are now trying to finance their own economic needs.

And a republican form of government we have.
We also vote for representatives to vote on how our gov functions, laws, etc which means we practice representative democracy.


#44

If you wanted to be intellectually honest you would put that quote in it’s proper context.

Previous to saying those words he made it quite clear he was speaking of so called “pure “ democracies. Government by the people wherein they vote for elected representatives (which we clearly and undeniably have) is a type of democracy.

We live in a democracy, deal with it.

It is interesting you omit referring to a constitution when you write “And a republican form of government we have”, while avoiding referencing our system as a “representative republic”, which would be more in line with what our system is.

The fact is Tucker Carlson, as well as a number of other personalities at Fox, excluding Hannity who uses the proper terminology, refer to “our democracy” for some unknown reason. Democracy is a vile form of government which is best described as mob rule government or two wolves and a sheep voting for dinner’s menu.

Our system is best described as a constitutionally limited Republican Form of Government as is mentioned in Article 4, Section 4 of our Constitution. Referring to our system as a “representative republic” is also far more accurate than “our democracy”.

And in case you missed it, Webster’s Dictionary 1828 - Online Edition explains the differences between a “Republic” and a “Democracy” as follows:

DEMOCRACY, noun [Gr. People, and to possess, to govern.] ”Government by the people; a form of government, in which the supreme power is lodged in the hands of the people collectively, or in which the people exercise the powers of legislation. Such was the government of Athens.”

REPUB’LIC, noun [Latin respublica; res and publica; public affairs.]
”A commonwealth; a state in which the exercise of the sovereign power is lodged in representatives elected by the people. In modern usage, it differs from a democracy or democratic state, in which the people exercise the powers of sovereignty in person. Yet the democracies of Greece are often called republics.”

Tucker Carlson should know better than referring to our system of government as “our democracy”. Seems that he, like so many others, have fallen victim to the intentional propaganda dished out at our government schools, our socialist controlled media, and their Yellow Journalist.

So tell me, why do you have such a problem referring to our system as a constitutionally limited Republican Form of Government, or a representative republic, which are far more accurate phrases than “our democracy”?

At the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on September 18, 1787, a Mrs. Powel anxiously awaited the results and as Benjamin Franklin emerged from the long task now finished asked him directly, Well, Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?'A republic, if you can keep it,’ responded Franklin.

It’s true. Tucker goes way back, all the way to his Ambassador to the Seychelles papi. His billionaire upbringing, free-pass ivy league education, through being a team member of Brett Kavanaugh’s cabal in the 90’s with his ilk consisting of Matt Drudge, Ann coulter, Alex Azar, Mark Paoletta and Barbara Comstock and later Arianna Huffington, which was really just a precursor to being a statist on CNN, a mouthpiece on MSNBC and now a complete tool on FNC.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh.


#48

Are we really debating whether or not the Fox News guy is a tie wearing Che Guevara?


#49

Yes, we also have a Constitution, I was not intentionally omitting that.

In modern parlance republic means we aren’t ruled by a monarch and the power rests in the hands of the public.


#51

So we don’t vote for potus or congressmen?


#52

No need to rub it in.


#53

Ah, old Argument #12. Democracy or republic. How boring.


#54

Of course there is. :wink:


#55

Your lack of reading comprehension skills suggests you are a victim of a government school education.

Let us not forget that the Obama Administration engaged in a Long train of tyranny, including giving aid and comfort to ten enemies of the United States by FREEING them from GITMO.


#56

Your vote for POTUS is designed to give a sense of preference, not elect a President.


#57

On election day, under our representative Republic, we vote for electors …… not the president! Our electors determine who is president.

As I keep telling you and others, we are not a democracy. Take a civics class.

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."


#58

I read your posts all the time John…but libs will never except the reality in which this nation was founded upon. Never.


#59

We’re a democratic republic.

This monthly democracy-versus-republic false dichotomy arrived a bit late this month.

It has got to be one of the dumbest ongoing arguments on this forum.


#60

Because we have lots of left-wing idiots here…thus the reason why the topic comes up all the time.

When you aren’t whining, Conan, what are you doing?
