Reid vs. Romney, haha.

Anyways, I'm not sure if his losing would be much of a liability, just like Warner losing a 2006 Senate race might not be much of a liability. Both Lincoln and Nixon were losers before they became President (1858 IL Senate "race", 1962 CA governor).

Obviously the best is anarchy, but if we could get at least laissez faire lite would e a great advance.

The non consecutive "who's the daddy" and "you married your (adopted) daughter" President is off.

Exactly. Two[/b] candidates. The original text explicitly mentions that you can't cast your two votes for the same person, the amendment's text does not repeal or contradict that.
XIIth specifies that two "distinct" ballots be cast. The original specifies that two persons be named on one ballot.

I don't see any reason why they can't be for the same person, unless those are electors from that candidate's home state, in which case whatever relevant part of the constitution applies where they can't both be from their home state.

Not happy at all. We need to get back to our populist roots. We are no longer the party of the working class, and the American people know it. We've sold them out.

0 Republicans and 25 Democrats voted against the bankruptcy bill in the Senate. That's a bare majority of the Democrats, which is pathetic, but still much better than the Republicans.

The oriiginal states no longer had the power to make an amendment become law by 1939, as it requires a 3/4ths vote of the states at the time of ratification. Otherwise, the titles of nobility amendment would have become law in 1819. Sure they could have ratified it, but by that time it needed 36 of the 48 states.

Some other states have ratified amendments long after they became law. First instance, in 1995 Mississippi recently ratified the anti-slavery (the real 13th) amendment.

He's got a damn good change at winning the primary. He's in bed with the Christian right, has threatened to fillibuster the stem cell legilsation, lives in a tax exempt "church", and is pretty stupid. Those are all pluses for the Republican nomination.. This idiot could easily be elected President.

Can you not register at the polls? Or is that not something you can do in the U.S.?

So many restrictions... In Canada, you only have to be 18 and over and a citizen to vote. (providing you are not the chief electoral officer or his deputy)

Republicans like barriers to voting. Some midwest states have same day registration. The rules are better than they used to, every state has to accept registrations 30 days before.

If two-thirds of the Senate is killed, can the other third still meet quorum?

Quorum is a majority of living Senators.

CARLHAYDEN, htmldon, possibly Richius (he's extremely partisan).
I thought Richius is conservative.

I think WalterMitty and bullmoose might stay in the Republican Party. SamSpade would stay in the Democratic Party.

Bullmoose, SamSpade, and CarlHayden would stay put. WalterMitty might switch. Richius would definitely switch.

Hell no. I'm not voting for some bigotted warmongers just because they're not so hard right on economic issues. 1 out of 3 doesn't cut it.

It it was for mangling/manufacturiung the facts when the post, it would be Moldie, JFRAUD, and Shira, but not necessarily in that order.


How about them 940 heads and 60 tails?

What do you mean by "continue to push to the left" on economic issues? The Republicans under GWB have just continued to move even further right. Look at the tax cuts in 2001 and 2003, and the repeal of the estate tax. And Bush want to privatize social security, cut funding to most non-defense government programs, and give huge windfalls to business through things like his energy bill and tort reform. How has there been any movement to the left by the GOP on economic issues?

If the GOP actually did inexplicable move left economically, I would probably vote for whichever party supported higher taxes on the wealthy.

No kidding, the GOP is clearly trying to bankrupt the federal government. You can't have any social programs if the federal government is broke.

McCain rejected an offer to be Bush's running mate in 2000, not Kerry's in 2004.

Carlhayden, It honestly took me forever to figure out which party he was in
Gabu and Mitty are good choices as well

No, CarlHayden is an ultra-partisan Republican without the avatar. He thinks that the WA Republican secretary of state stole the election for the Democrats.
