UM… Beto O’Rourke just suggested the US may need to DITCH the Constitution

Texas really dodged a bullet when they elected Ted Cruz as their Senator.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Beto O’Rourke suggested that it might be time for America to ditch that 230-year-old Constitution:

Throughout the two-hour interview — which was often interrupted by bystanders urging him to run for president — O’Rourke boomeranged between a bright-eyed hope that the United States will soon dramatically change its approach to a whole host of issues and a dismal suspicion that the country is now incapable of implementing sweeping change.

When asked which it is, O’Rourke paused.

“I’m hesitant to answer it because I really feel like it deserves its due, and I don’t want to give you a — actually, just selfishly, I don’t want a sound bite of it reported, but, yeah, I think that’s the question of the moment: Does this still work?” O’Rourke said. “Can an empire like ours with military presence in over 170 countries around the globe, with trading relationships . . . and security agreements in every continent, can it still be managed by the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago?”

O’Rourke doesn’t yet know the answer, but he’s ready to discuss it.



Yeah, let’s ditch the ideas that made America the greatest country in the world. That sounds like a great plan!

These socialistic morons will lead this country into ruin! And wow does it sometimes feel like that’s the way we are headed.

Earlier in the interview, Beto said he was absolutely opposed to the wall. But when asked how to fix our illegal immigration problem, he…um….paused again…and said he has no idea:

In a digital ad that recently went viral, Beto O’Rourke tore into President Trump’s desired border wall with soaring footage of the Rio Grande Valley and an explanation of what the wall would do: cut off access to the river, shrink the size of the United States and force the seizure of privately-held land.

It noted that most undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States in the past decade came not over the border but on visas that then expired.

So what should be done to address visa overstays?

“I don’t know,” O’Rourke said, pausing in a lengthy interview.

Yeah 2020 is gonna be awesome.
