Two Thirds of 435 Is 290
According to the Constitution, it takes two thirds of the Congress to override a Presidential veto. It also takes two thirds of the congress or states to purpose an Amendment to the Constitution, but 3/4 of the states have to ratify it before it becomes part of the Constitution. Two thirds seems to be very important to our representative Constitutional Republic. What happens when an incumbent person running for a house seat in Congress loses the election by 38 points, or 68% for her opponent and she only gets 27% of the vote? That’s only 95%. What happened to the other 5%? Who knows? Well, anyway, if one loses by 41% of the vote or 38 points, that’s a lot! AND, 68% of the people’s vote is more than two thirds of a majority – 66.6%. Mark of the beast with a decimal point? I doubt it!
The People of Wyoming have Spoken
Liz Is Out!
Oh, she stood for our Democracy!
We’re a Republic!
That’s what the U.S. Constitution says.
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
I guess many people have forgotten that and most that swear an oath to uphold and defend it are in violation of their oath.
Sure ain’t doing much on that invasion thing either!
Well, enough for civics 101.

How about this two thirds?
KJV(i) 7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. 8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. 9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.
KJV(i) 1 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. 2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. 3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word. 4 The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. 5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting (H5769) covenant (H1285).
What is the everlasting covenant?
KJV(i) 15 Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death (H4191 – …worthy of death). 16 Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, for a perpetual (H5769) covenant (H1285). 17 It is a sign (H226) between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed.
*H4191 – מוּת – mûth – mooth – A primitive root; to die (literally or figuratively); causatively to kill
KJV Usage: X at all, X crying, (be) dead (body, man, one), (put to, worthy of) death, destroy (-er), (cause to, be like to, must) die, kill, necro [-mancer], X must needs, slay, X surely, X very suddenly, X in [no] wise.
*H5769 – עלם עולם – ‛ôlâm ‛ôlâm – o-lawm’,o-lawm’ – From H5956; properly concealed, that is, the vanishing point; generally time out of mind (past or future), that is, (practically) eternity; frequentative adverbially (especially with prepositional prefix) always.
KJV Usage: always (-s), ancient (time), any more, continuance, eternal, (for, [n-]) ever (-lasting, -more, of old), lasting, long (time), (of) old (time), perpetual, at any time, (beginning of the) world (+ without end).
*H1285 – בּרית – be rı̂yth – ber-eeth’ – From H1262 (in the sense of cutting (like H1254)); a compact (because made by passing between pieces of flesh)
KJV Usage: confederacy, [con-]feder[-ate], covenant, league.
*H226 – אות – ‘ôth – oth – Probably from H225 (in the sense of appearing); a signal (literally or figuratively), as a flag, beacon, monument, omen, prodigy, evidence, etc.
KJV Usage: mark, miracle, (en-) sign, token.
Note: In the New Testament it is the seal of God. The mark of the beast was whoever changed it. Rome and the Roman Church!
KJV(i) 25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

What I would like to hear is this:
Isn’t what we cherish so much endowed by our creator?
Our Bill of rights or the first 10 Amendments to The Constitution!?!?
God has a Constitution too! It’s called:
The Ten Commandments
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
KJV(i) 12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
Come out of Babylon for her judgement is near!
Love that you say: “God has a Constitution too! It’s called:
The Ten Commandments
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
So many live as though the ten commandments are just suggestions. Many Blessings Dear Brother.

Great post! Thanks for the link to how our representatives voted. My representative voted NO. This caught my attention, SpendingTracker.org estimates H.R. 5376 will add $1.63 trillion in new spending through 2031. That does not look like it reduces anything. 🙂
