    It really does perplex me about the Left's whining about the Electoral College. Do Democrats not know what an enormous advantage it is having California and New York locked up as a safe state at the get go? That is almost 1/3 of the votes necessary to win right there. Every election, the Republican Presidential candidate is basically forced to run the table in terms of picking up every swing state out there, and said candidate has to run on a platform that appeals to the wildly different voting groups in those said states. Which is why Trump, and none of the other 15 GOP candidates in 2016, was the ONLY one capable of defeating Hillary because he had the chops to be able to go into not only Florida and Ohio but Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, michigan and win. 
     
    Again this wouldn't be an issue if maybe if Democrats didn't pick terrible human beings like Algore in 2000 who lost his home state of Tennessee because of gun control or an even worse human being like Hillary Clinton in 2016 who didn't even bother to run a campaign, had to cheat to win her primary and who is loathed by her own party because of it, and has worse popularity numbers -as we speak - than the President, who is supposedly so embattled. 
     
    But with the way things are going so far in 2020, I don't see the Democrats actually taking that advice, which is why the Party is collectively squealing in terror over the fact that Howard "Sonics to OKC" Schultz is running as a filthy Centrist who thinks that America is OK and we should all come together as a country!
     
    What nerve!

    The 3/5s rule was designed to LIMIT the power of the Southern slave states.

    As long as it's enforced and not used as a loophole to stuff the country with illegals for political or economic gain, then I agree.
     
     
    I don't think so. A better idea would be to curtail or even end the practice of funding the vampiric college system.
     
    Of course I think workers of all types should have a pathway to the US that is much more navigable than it is now, but treating immigrants as a labor force strikes me as too volatile a policy to support.
     
     
    Much to the chagrin of the DNC leadership, if true.
     
     
    I'd trade intervention in the Middle East for a renewed Monroe Doctrine in a heartbeat, but weren't you one of the guys who complained about Trump pulling the troops out of Syria? Or was that just Bele? Honest question. Anyway, way I see it we have interests all over, and we must pick and choose where we intervene. Unbridled military activity around the globe is not financially sustainable.
     
     
    The issue is that rogue Mexican Army units in the pay of the Cartels can come over the border and kill Americans, dude.

    About any other country in the world would be at war with Mexico right now. You can stare at statistics (whether right or wrong) all you want, but don't close your eyes to this shit.
     
     
    I thought Trump's wall was actually a fence. Eminent domain is a sticky issue as it's necessary for some security programs (yes, like the Wall, but also the Interstate Highway System) yet at the same time it's easily abused. I share your concern about it.
     
    But basically, you support a wall (or fence, whatever terms you prefer), you just don't support The Wall. Why do you think that is?
     
     
    Then we agree that the country should aggressively tackle voter fraud of any kind.
     
    At the end of the day, I want a country that works. The US doesn't work. Democrats are evil, and the Republicans don't have the spine to fight them (also they are evil too). I know not what kind of creature Trump is, but at least he's a vertebrate, and hates the Democrats.

    You know, you can summarize that whole list up instead with "people who have the same interests".

    Here's my tinfoil hat take on this bomber. He's a result of the FBI,  he'd been egg'd on and pushed by an agent into acting so that he could be intercepted. I think the FBI does this kind of thing regularly, trying to infiltrate groups or locate weirdos to push them forward and get them to do something they wouldn't otherwise do. 
     
    Another thing to note is that almost all of the people targeted have security details that check incoming mail. Didn't some of them get into the offices buildings where the person was? This whole event looks rotten.

    They are terrified because of their country's state-controlled media were reporting on that much violence at home, they really would have something to worry about.
     
    It's the Florida Man effect. The US is one of the safest, most open places in the world, but it also has some of the best transparency policies, and in the big scheme of things it's one of the least corrupt places in the world. So the picture people see is not as polished as it would be elsewhere.

    I love how Trump conned Sen Warren into paying for a test to prove definitively to the world that she lied about her Indian heritage.

    What I love more is how Warren thought it was a 'gotcha' moment and decided to roast herself.

    A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against President Trump by adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who claimed the president had defamed her earlier this year on Twitter.
    The lawsuit was filed over a tweet Trump sent in April suggesting Daniels was lying about being threatened in 2011 not to go public with her story of an alleged sexual encounter with Trump.
    "A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!" the president tweeted.

    Warrens DNA test shows maybe some south American in her so far back it doesn't matter, but she still claims she an Indian! 
     
    "A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person's ancestors were indigenous to North or South America. Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation. Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong. It makes a mockery out of DNA tests and its legitimate uses while also dishonoring legitimate tribal governments and their citizens, whose ancestors are well documented and whose heritage is prove. Senator Warren is undermining tribal interests with her continued claims of tribal heritage."
    - Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin, Jr.
