- Question:-How is Grover Norquist not a enemy of the United States of American?
Our fading generations are now the most dangerous problem we have in the US now. I think this guy is a enemy of the United States. If a company or group of people can cause problems in the economy government will try to save its people and spend so much that it will have to shrink itself aka cuts. "My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years, to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub" _Grover Norquist May 24th 2001.
Answer:-= "My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years, to get
= it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub"
He does not call for drowning it in the bathtub -- nor for any other violence.
He calls for it becoming so small, that it would fit in the bathtub... And I agree.
- Question:-Has Grover Norquist permanently changed the Pledge of Allegiance?
Grover Norquist persuaded hundreds of U. S. Representatives and Senators to ignore those citizens who had elected them, and to sign a pledge of allegiance to him instead. The new pledge reads as follows:
"I pledge allegiance to the United States of Norquist and to the Plutocracy for which it stands, one ideology, underground, indivisible, with avidity and suffrage for millionaires all."
Does not the signing of the Norquist pledge, override the oath of office taken by the members of congress who signed it?

- Question:-What did Grover Norquist mean when he spoke of drowning the government in the bathtub?
Or more specifically; that he wanted to make it small enough that it could be drowned in the bathtub?
What did he mean by that?
Answer:-I would understand liberals being confused by this.
The American way of thinking is that government is an impediment to freedom and must be restrained and limited in size, scope and power.
The totalitarian way of thinking is that people are the enemy of government and that government must be preserved, trusted and enhanced for the good of everyone.
Liberals are just not honest about what they believe.
- Question:-When conservatives made their pledge to unelected lobbyist Grover Norquist?
Did they write it in blood or something? Why can't they just tell Grover to go pound sand?
"Sorry.. just kidding bro.. maybe go whine to big-bird or something dude"
That's what they should tell this guy that's holding America hostage to his idea on how America should be run. How is that even democratic.. one man holding the nation hostage?
Answer:-Well most likely because they are aware of Norquist's right to free speech. During Obama's first pres. campaign he loudly proclaimed "Lobbyists will find no place in MY administration" President now has more than 40 ( maybe as many as 200) on his payroll, including Eric Holder and tax cheat Tim Geithner.As usual, old Obie was talking out of both sides of his purple lips
