Senator Kamala Harris rejects White Call call: "we want nothing to do with you" (7-9-2018)

Treason is a catch-all term to describe Democrats and RINOS.

All very fair points. I do not disagree with this at all. Do you know whether a Constitutional amendment would need to be passed to implement this for Presidential elections? I believe each State would have to pass its own legislation, to implement something like this for State elected offices.

I’ve always believed that we should make “Voting Day” a national holiday. Both for sense of ease of voting, but also to inspire more to be a part of the process. But I doubt it will happen in my lifetime. Also, I believe that many on the right would fight this tooth-and-nail, as the greater the turnout, the lower their chances are for gaining or retaining power.

If you vote, and are politically active, then I doubt that my dear. :wink:

The Constitution disagrees with you.

I’m not a legal scholar, and i don’t pretend to be one here on Like you, I believe at the State level it’s fairly simple (as simple as passing legislation to change how we conduct elections; not simple at all). For President, well, the States currently get to determine how they award their electoral votes. Not every State uses a winner-take-all system, therefore I imagine they could change their votes based on their ranking-system-voting-system, if they so chose.

It’s not going to happen though. It’d effectively take away power from the major two parties. I don’t think either Party wants to cede power, even if it was to a politician who hold similar positions to their own. Party power goes far beyond a single politician.

I agree with everything you posted, but clipped this part out in particular, because you are spot on here. I could not agree more that this power is everything to these two parties, and they will never volunteer to give any of it up.

Thanks for keeping me in check. I wouldn’t want the power to go to my head.

I have no idea what you are talking about? You’re other-worldly in my book Cali! :+1:

Seriously though; what kind of banana logic is it that anyone can edit a post once it’s been edited the first time?

I think, hopefully, they are working on resolving the issue. And just getting some trial runs and kinks worked out.

But I do understand the concept of allowing any of us to edit things like OP’s though. To re-assign them to proper categories, etc. To make it more of a community effort, and take some of the workload off of the moderators. So we can somewhat self-moderate the forum. And if posters are too ignorant and take advantage of it, and treat this power irresponsibly, then they should eat a ban, be it temporary or permanent.

I suppose. It’s pretty foreign to me though, and I’ve been hitting discussion forums for 20+ years.

Oh thats Rich! LOL& LOL again!

As have I, and I understand your point. When it was first explained at the beginning of the new site, it made some sense to me. But then after edit disappeared, I’m less convinced at its applications now.

Either you’re very very old or quite young to not remember this internet classic:


Its a Classic

I’m not as GOD-like as I briefly thought I was. It’s probably for the best.

Lol how bout shooting off a nuke.


That would be stupid of them to do.

But that would make them a threat,right?
