O’Rourke boomeranged between a bright-eyed hope before drastically changing his approach to a whole host of issues.

Earlier this year, presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke suggested that the United States should ditch the Constitution, questioning its modern-day relevance and whether the country should still be governed by “the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago.”

Before the Texas congressman announced he would run for 2020; he openly mulled how the nature of the changing world meant the founding document of the country was out of date.

During a two-hour interview, O’Rourke boomeranged between a bright-eyed hope before drastically changing his approach to a whole host of issues.

Even back then, Beto still didn’t have an answer on the best way to tackle the border crisis.

“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?”

Now O’Rourke is vying for the White House, that quote has come back to haunt him.

Even back then, Beto still didn’t have an answer on the best way to tackle the border crisis.

“That’s a problem when you’re like, ‘It will be a wall,’ or ‘It will be this,’ or ‘We can only do it with this,’” he said.

“The genius is we can nonviolently resolve our differences, though I won’t get to my version of perfect or I, working with you, will get to something better than what we have today.”

“It’s rare that someone’s ever been able to impose their will unilaterally in this country. We don’t want that.”

In April, O’Rourke has doubled down on calling for the Electoral College to be abolished by suggesting it could be related to a reparations-style apology for the institution of forced labor.

Last month, ‘Beto’ cited Hillary Clinton’s defeat against President Donald Trump in the 2016 election as a reason to abolish the current system.

He joins the growing number of Democrats who believe that eliminating the Electoral College would facilitate Democracy.

But O’Rourke went further comparing the current to “slavery,” according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Beto has managed to make a perfect A$$ of himself – all by himself. He will go nowhere – never.

Every time I see this pic of “Beto” I think he is signing that HE IS THE LOSER. IF so that is an excellent sign to make!
