Politics in this country has degenerated in the age of President Trump that a child molester was the Republican nominee for an open senate seat, and said president endorsed him happily, and the RNC supported him.
In 2011, Roy Moore appeared on a radio show, where the host said that the government should get rid of every Constitutional amendment following the tenth. These include the 13th, which abolished slavery, the 14th, which guaranteed former slaves citizenship, the 15th, which gave black men the right to vote, the 17th, which established that senators will be elected by popular vote rather than appointed by state legislatures, and the 19th, which gave women the right to vote.
Moore’s response to getting rid of these 17 amendments? “That would eliminate many problems,” he said. “You know people don’t understand how some of these amendments have completely tried to wreck the form of government that our forefathers intended.”
In 2017, Roy Moore lost the 17th-amendment-mandated popular vote for the senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when he became President Trump’s attorney general. The main reason why he lost that vote is because of black voters and women voters.
Karma’s a bitch, ain’t it?
