The Governor takes on all your questions, including the current obstruction against the SCOTUS nominee Merrick Garland. Should Senator Chuck Grassley, the Republican chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, go to jail for obstructing a vote on Garland, and, in turn, obstructing the Constitution?
Robert from Florida asks: Do you agree with the petition to remove Chuck Grassley for not holding confirmation hearings from Obama’s SCOTUS nominee?
I find it appalling that people who claim to respect the Constitution would knowingly violate it. That's what they are doing here; it's as simple as that. Obama is the President: he has to fill the Supreme Court seat, as the Constitution dictates. Those who obstruct the Constitution should have to go to jail for it. But they won't. That's why the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are worthless documents today: people like Grassley who abuse or ignore the laws of the land. If it were to work in his favor, you can bet he would be demanding that the Democrats approve the Supreme Court nomination. We've already seen the hypocrisy on both sides: just go back 20 years and you’ll see Democrats pulling the same card on Republicans. What does that tell you? They’re all a bunch of hypocrites. Simple as that.
Aaron from Virginia wants to know: Do you think we should hold American businesses abroad to the same labor laws that we do here in the States?
Yes. All this question requires is a yes or a no. And I say yes.
Matthew from Michigan asks: The way our country is going, how close are we to a police state and getting rounded up and put into FEMA camps?
We are getting closer and closer. They just rounded up protesters and put them in jail for exercising their First Amendment rights. When you’re not allowed to petition your government, that means they are now using the Constitution against us. And yet the Constitution was designed to protect the citizens. We’ve allowed this to happen because we continue to elect these people.
