Re: SCALIA DEAD!!!!!!!

See John, I think this is what bothers me about the argument. You see it as Obama having an eight year Presidency, except he has not. He's had a four year Presidency + four year Presidency. The Constitution allows the People to elect someone every four years and in 2012, they did and Obama won. The...

Re: RBG has Cancer...Again

I also agree if it was changed to this: The People pick the Legislature; the Legislature increases the size of the Judiciary. That is how it works. SCOTUS keeps overturning the will of the People? Weaken it, because that's fundamental checks and balances. If the nation becomes more progressive with...

Re: RBG has Cancer...Again

To paraphrase John Adams, the United States is a nation of laws, not men. The role of the judiciary isn't to work for the people. It's job is to apply the law, period. It is insulated and cannot be subject to sudden whims of "the people". I see why you hate the Constitution so much. You don't under...

Re: RBG has Cancer...Again

Bamboozled or not, the system is set up this way. It was set up by white, privelaged men of their times with little to no input from anyone who would be represented by the Constitution, and we've continued this set-up as our foundation. The Constitution makes it difficult to take into account the n...

Re: RBG has Cancer...Again

The flaws are pretty severe. It's a triumvirate type system where two branches will always gang up on one - a major reason historical triumvirates end up falling into disarray. The Constitution also weakens the Legislative branch (the one which best represents the People) by further dividing it int...

RIP. This. RBG was an excellent justice and member of the Supreme Court. The Court and the country are lesser places without her. Hopefully, we have justices who can fill her (and Scalia's) robes in the pipeline. Agreed. The amount of good she's done is immeasurable. She dedicated an entire life to...

Apparently the WP is saying turnout in Loudoun County is even higher, with the wait over there being four hours.

Re: 2020 General Election

Huge turnout for early voting in Fairfax County. The line at the government center (only polling place open) is two hours long.

Officials saying this is the largest first-day turnout ever for the County.

Plainly said - anyone that looks at Biden and DOESN'T think some is wrong with his mental capacity is either fooling themselves or just ignoring all evidence which supports it. or Both. :roll: Here's 90 minutes of a round table event from two days ago. It's boring, but he sounds pretty coherent and...

Him and Trump are the same in that regard. They both are awful choices for POTUS. Indeed, this bending over backwards to try to make Biden seem like a Rhodes Scholar is incredible.
