Looking forward to Reading this new publication! So will there be any actual places to get a copy, or will people need to try to locate a standing vendor?
Permanent? No matter one's views on the issue, arbitrary royal decrees are not permanent and can be undone by later arbitrary royal decrees. That "phone and a pen" thing is a bitch.
Thank you, Ms Stein, for your accurate well-written news story, reminding us that women's reproductive rights are being taken away by the states and are now badly threatened again at the federal level. I hope people are donating to the organizations who are working hard to protect rights, volunteering at the medical clinics that are licensed, and supporting other women like Ms Blackburn (not her real name). The public needs to stay aware!
It's nice to see all you right-wing nuts getting your panties in a wad about an obscure and very relevant clause in the Constitution - nervous, are you?
Wyman, I wasn't going to dignify your adolescent and uninformed response with a reply, but here goes: In the Trump world there are no checks and balances. Remember him saying that if he's President he could do what he wanted? With the Congress he now has he can do that. Hold on to your shorts, boy, or you're gonna lose 'em!
Look up 'corporatism', 'oligarchy', 'supply side economics', 'unlimited annual growth', 'nepotism', 'trickle-down economics' and get back to us - all of us, not just your wealthy friends.
I've been on the edge all of my adult life because of ignorant jackasses like you - keep it up - I might stroke out (LOL - I'm in it for the long haul - don't get your hopes up!
BTW, a "whack job" is a professional hit. Try more accurate terminology. I like passionate patriot. You'd be surprised at all I already have to say about what goes on. You think Hollywood doesn't have a say? We've already had a B actor for President - now we get a reality (right) show p...y grabber and WWE fan. Hollywood DOES run the show.
Matt 2, the point is that the population is generally not qualified or sane enough to elect qualified people. A popular vote would have made it possible for Hollywood to run this country. Michael Jackson would have been president. Would you want someone like vietnamized to have any say at all in anything? Absolutely not! He is a whack-job on the edge and there are a million more like him.
People are foretelling doom but we only need to recognize the propaganda that emanates from Washington DC, checks and balances take care of the rest. It is always good when one party shoots down the other party's legislation. Richard Nixon did untold damage with his war on drugs and the creation of the DEA and THAT was all propaganda. The people bought it hook line and sinker, Once something is law it is hard to undo. If they would stick to the Constitution they couldn't stick it to us.
Shut up in advance vietnamized, don't care about your opinion of me or anyone else,
What in the hell is Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments? And EEOC is at the service to employers. Human decency is uncommon among those who hire employees, they do as they please and if you don't like it then it sucks to be you.
murderous religious freaks have been sticking their noses into women's crotches for decades. holier than thou attitudes leave them to believe they should have control over every woman's body because of their fairy tale book they like to cherry pick.
as for the p***y grabber president elect, we will wait and see what his take on this is this week... he does think he should have control of every woman's body... to grab.
And don't get me started on the emoluments clause - Article II, Section 9 - and let's not forget NEPOTISM!
Duh - it's http://asktheelectors.org
Having been around the military all of my life I'm pretty worked up about foreign interference in our election...
BTW, Abadi Dirt, pants-pooping is what draft dodgers like Ted Nugent do when they don't want to get shot at - was that your tactic?
BTW, Priss. Hillary has a present 2.8 MILLION vote lead. That's the will of the people!
YAY, CHUCK DOUDNA! Couldn't have said it more succinctly for these morons myself!
Matt2 - The purpose of the Electoral College is beautifully and fully stated in Federalist 68 by Alexander Hamilton - take a break from the dab and read it. The language is a little stilted - you might have to get the dictionary out, but do it anyway - for yourself, your children and your country.
Priss, the States cannot supersede Federal Law. They can penalize "unfaithful electors", but that's all. All State laws that bind electors are unconstitutional. Period. When we caucused we were subjected to the same pledge...but then we didn't know that the Russian government was going to be behind the hacks and the drip drip drip of leaks too WikiLeaks and subsequently to the good ol' "liberal" media (my aching red ass they are).
The interference President Obama was talking about was the hacking of voting machines - do YOU remember that? This had nothing to do with the voting machines...it was disinformation, which has been a KGB/FSB tactic all over the world for decades. Putin is a master spy and a master puppeteer, and, if you voted for Trump you elected Putin - dummy! The Baltic states (Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania, if you're geographically challenged as well as Constitutionally challenged), the Ukraine, Romania, Czech Republic, the rest of the former Soviet Union - they are all at risk. And so are you, whether you choose to believe it or not. Wake up. NOW!
Abadi Dirt, i'm pretty sure you're as dumb as your post. Take a little time and read the Constitution, and the essays that comprised the Federalist Papers. If you read objectively you will understand that the Founders put that section in Article II to protect our Republic from exactly this kind of foreign influence. My father spent his entire life keeping the USSR in check - patrolling the East German border airspace and the polar routes. If he were alive he would think you're as big a dumbass I do. Personally, I got to peer through the barbed wire at the Communist guards on the East German border numerous times, and even visited East Berlin before the Wall came down. Putin wants to reconstitute the Soviet Union under the Russian banner.
You want more information? Try reading. Pretty much anything will improve your limited knowledge, but "The Plot to Hack America" by Malcolm Vance would improve your IQ by about a hundred points - maybe to 120?
The electoral college has been around for over 200 yrs, and you whining democrats didn't change it when obama could have either legally or illegally cuz he don't care about the constitution or the law. Only when its not in your favor do you cry about it go host a cry in poop your pants out of grief. If the shoe were on the other foot you'd crying foul. Trump wasnt my pick either but what you guys are proposing is dangerous, and really just shows how immature and sore loosing you are grow up guys and gals.
THIS IS A FEDERAL ELECTION NOT A STATE ELECTION. SCREW THE STATE. VOTE YOUR CONSCIENCE, OR IF THAT BOTHERS YOU.....RESIGN. DON'T VOTE AT ALL. IF TRUMP DOESN'T GET 270 VOTES HE CAN'T WIN.
If electors can't vote differently from the popular vote, then what's the point of the electoral college?
If electors can vote any way they want, regardless of the popular vote, then what's the point of the electoral college?
Does anyone recall the pre-election speeches by both President Obama and Hillary Clinton, stating fervently that the election results should be accepted graciously and that the 'loser' should aspire to work with the President Elect to ensure they are successful? Remember those remarks? Obama also ensured the nation that elections are not and cannot be rigged, by Russia or anyone else. Remember those remarks? Guess not, because now that the Dems lost out they are doing everything to ensure Trump fails. Give the guy a chance! We sat here and let Obama practically destroy the country for 8 years.
I was at caucus. Electorates pledged that they would abide by the laws in place and vote the will of the people. Why would a small group of people think they are better or know more than the people they 'represent'? What arrogance!
