In the years since the Massachusetts health care law went into effect nothing has changed my view that a plan crafted to fit the unique circumstances of a single state should not be grafted onto the entire country. Beyond that, had President Obama actually learned the lessons of Massachusetts health care, millions of Americans would not lose the insurance they were promised they could keep, millions more would not see their premiums skyrocket, and the installation of the program would not have been a frustrating embarrassment. Health reform is best crafted by states with bipartisan support and input from its employers, as we did, without raising taxes, and by carefully phasing it in to avoid the type of disruptions we are seeing nationally.

Ted Cruz criticizes DOJ for arguing international treaty can trump the Constitution

Justice Department attorneys are advancing an argument at the Supreme Court that could allow the government to invoke international treaties as a legal basis for policies such as gun control that conflict with the U.S. Constitution, according to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

Their argument is that a law implementing an international treaty signed by the U.S. allows the federal government to prosecute a criminal case that would normally be handled by state or local authorities.

That is a dangerous argument, according to Cruz.

"The Constitution created a limited federal government with only specific enumerated powers," Cruz told the Washington Examiner prior to giving a speech on the issue today at the Heritage Foundation.

"The Supreme Court should not interpret the treaty power in a manner that undermines this bedrock protection of individual liberty,” Cruz said.

In his speech, Cruz said the Justice Department is arguing "an absurd proposition" that "could be used as a backdoor way to undermine" Second Amendment rights, among other things.

Ted Cruz 'stands for everything America doesn't,' says Harry Reid[s-u-r-e hairy]

"If I didn't care so much about the country, I would hope he got the Republican nomination for president, because that would mean the end of the Republican Party," Reid said. "He stands for everything America doesn't."

But, but, but McAuliffe was leading by 15% just yesterday!!!
Poll: Virginia governor race a nail-biter
By TAL KOPAN | 10/30/
With less than a week until Election Day, Virginia gubernatorial hopeful Terry McAuliffe holds a slim lead over Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli in a tightening race, according to a poll on Wednesday.
McAuliffe leads Cuccinelli among likely voters 45 percent to 41 percent, with 9 percent for Libertarian candidate Robert Sarvis, according to a Quinnipiac University poll. The edge is within the polls margin of error.

Tell us now, Rogue. Should McAuliffe win, will it be fraudulent? Like Obama's two wins?
Did I say that? Did I hint that? Has there been any allegations? Right now there are three gubernatorial candidates and the Libertarian is taking away votes that would probably go to the Republican, but that is not fraudulent!
Fact is that Bush-41 would probably have won the election of 1992 if it were not for Ross Perot. Likewise Al Gore probably would have won the election of 2000 if it had not been for Ralph Nader who won 2.74% of the vote.
Fact is is that third parties are often times spoilers and it happens to both parties. But that is just politics.
Fact, many of those who are on this forum are not Conservatives by Libertarians just like few on the other-side are are not Liberals but Progressives.
I consider myself a Conservatarian in that I am a Fiscal Conservative but a Social and Religious moderate. True Libertarians are ultra-conservative on Fiscal issues by Liberal on Social and Religious issues.

I wonder if anyone in this administration gave any thought to identity theft before crearing healthcare.gov ? It's only one of the biggest problems associated with the net.

The Feds simply do not possess the authority to tell Americans "you must buy this or we will fine you"! They've never had that authority. Guess I need to call and remind them!

No, you didn't say that. Geez, sensitive, are we? I simply posed the question. And, btw, you are not a Religious moderate. You are a bigoted religious zealot, as you call anyone who is not religious or who criticizes Christianity an atheist. Politically-wise, I am none of the things you wrote, I am just me, for sale to no one, particularly not to the 1% like you.

Rewind. Gore WON the 2000 election, were it not for Jeb Bush and the majority repub supreme court. Gore had the votes. Everyone but you knows that. As to being smarter, you're not gonna tell me GWB is smarter than Gore, now will you? Remember, I did not say GWB was dumb or stupid, as he is neither, but as to which man is smarter...

Kerry lost fairly to GWB in 2004, but it was not because he was stupid, he is not. None of those guys are. He just ran a bad awkward campaign, with his stupid salutes, "as he mouthed ready to serve or something". GWB ran a much better campaign, and Kerry's aides were no match for GWB's Cheney, Grove, Rice etc.

Anyone that is honest and has knowledge of the matter will tell you that they aren't sure who would have won Florida (and thus the election) had the counting continued. Subsequent reviews suggested differing results depending on how generously counters attempted to infer the "intent" of the voter and how many counties were counted.

The one truth is that Clinton's affair and subsequent song and dance caused the election to be much closer than it otherwise would have been.

I disagree. Bush won in 2000. Or, at least the vote was so close that Gore was stupid to have counted on Florida and should have assumed that he would lose that state and put resources into other states. As has been pointed out, Clinton's actions had a lot to do with Gore losing--but the fact is, he lost.

Sound reasoning, that. Could be rehashed forever and everyone would be right AND wrong. Let's say it was close. This is interesting :

United States presidential election, 2000

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


United States Presidential Election, 2000

United States
----------

Popular vote
50,456,002 50,999,897

Percentage
47.9% 48.4%

----------

The United States presidential election of 2000 was the 54th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 7, 2000. The contest was between Republican candidate George W. Bush, the incumbent governor of Texas and son of former president George H. W. Bush, and Democratic candidate Al Gore, the incumbent Vice President.

Incumbent Democratic President Bill Clinton was not eligible to serve a third term, and Vice President Gore was able to secure the Democratic nomination with relative ease. Bush was seen as the early favorite for the Republican nomination, and despite a contentious primary battle with Senator John McCain and other candidates, secured the nomination by Super Tuesday. Many third party candidates also ran, most prominently Ralph Nader. Bush chose former Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney as his running mate, and Gore chose Senator Joe Lieberman as his. Both major party candidates focused primarily on domestic issues, such as the budget, tax relief, and reforms for federal social insurance programs, though foreign policy was not ignored. Clinton and Gore did not often campaign together, a deliberate decision resulting from the Lewinsky sex scandal two years prior.

Election results hinged on Florida, where the margin of victory triggered a mandatory recount. Litigation in select counties started additional recounts, and this litigation ultimately reached the United States Supreme Court. The Court's contentious decision in Bush v. Gore, announced on December 12, 2000, ended the recounts, effectively awarding Florida's votes to Bush and granting him the victory. This marked only the fourth election in U.S. history in which the eventual winner failed to win a plurality of the popular vote (after the elections of 1824, 1876, and 1888). Later studies have reached conflicting opinions on who would have won the recount had it had been allowed to proceed.

==========

Above last sentence is important. But the Supreme Court halted all of that.

And I think that Kerry's mistake was not using Clinton in his campaign - he was afraid of the effects of Clinton's White House shenanigans. He was wrong. Clinton would've helped him and Obama, though the two can't stand each other, was smart enough to use him. And he won, and I don't think, in both cases, that one could discount Clinton's contribution.

Not sure he lost, but as I just wrote, everyone that speculates as to who won or lost are wrong AND right. I disagree with the Clinton factor. Had Clinton been allowed to run for a 3rd term, he would've won hands down against any contender. Gore was afraid, of the Lewinski affair, as I just wrote to LTR, but I reckon he misjudged a democratic electorate and some conservatives that had forgiven his stupid indiscretions. Had he solicited Clinton more, he probably would've won without a recount.

Not anticipating that Clinton's actions would impact Florida of all places was inexcusable on the part of Gore's campaign. In more recent elections he has been a big help for the Democrat in many elections. But for Gore he was an albatross
