Trump's Bully Pulpit

Maybe we should require all potential political candidates to pass a test on the U.S. Constitution before allowing them to run for office. The passing grade for that should be 100.

Yesterday Dickless Don revoked President Obama's guidelines on the use of bathroom's in public schools by transgender students. Dickless said he believed this was a matter of states' rights. Yes, Dickless wants to take America back to the mentality that gave us slavery.

Our Constitution is all about the rights of the people. Understanding this is fundamental to understanding the Constitution. The Preamble makes this clear.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Every United States citizen takes his/her rights with her/him as they travel from one state to another in the United States. When this doesn't happen, we have chaos and terror. Remember the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850? Remember prior to June 26, 2015, when the states could decide on whether or not to recognize same-sex marriage? Remember when women couldn't vote? Remember segregation?

Any politician who tells you that any citizen's rights are determined by any individual state as opposed to protected by our Constitution has no business running for office - it is the ultimate act of cowardice in the United States.

Holy Moly!
