well who is the electoral college anyways?? martians?
I have my doubts about the electoral college as well, but EVERY single attempt to dismantle it has failed.
the president beat Mitt romney by 124 electoral votes and 4 million popular votes??
now WHO won??
it wasnt romney.
ps; any plan to subvert the popular vote BY STATE, would be compleatly unfair...

Well said. Does he think the racist north would die fighting to free the slaves? It's amazing how the liberals are educated from movies. They should watch the Civil war documentary by Ken Burn's since they don't seem to be able to read.

depends on the felony?? and if it involved guns OR violence.
and espungment is espungment....
you cant get esponged of a hainous crime that easy...
if there wasnt a premeditated gun violation??
id say his chance of regaining the right to own a gun is good indeed.
we dont give hainous criminals back their voting rights immeadiatle,and unconditionally, even in blue states...
so it depends on the circumstances of the case.
in 13 southern states, no felon gets their voting rights back(a shame)
I thought that whole three stikes thing that clinton pushed on us was stoopid.
they passed a mitigation to that law, last election, here in california...
they are having serious over crowding issues anyhow...
so they had to send violent criminals to COUNTY lock up(believe it
if someone who has two strikes?? gets caught later in life with a bag of meth for instance....
it is stoopid to hand out a LONG sentence(even in a hard ass state, with more room in their prisons)
even though meth is stoopid itself.....two stoopids(locking up drug addicts) dont make a smart..
prohibition itself creates the crime surrounding drug use.
educate not incarcerate.

when i asked you "who are they??", that was a rhetorical question.
but thanks for the research anyways.

Well, it can be a daunting task, arriving at the truth, when we are inundated by propaganda, but if one has many sources of input, it can reduce the difficulty. I have lived extensively abroad, and that helps a lot. Getting a completely different view from the outside is a rare thing. Having lived for a spell in the Mideast, I know that most Muslims are wonderful people, but that the few have given them a bad name.

That's because people far more intelligent than yourself understand why we have an electoral college.

i HAve watched that documentary....
you know ken is gay right?
I watched that, and somehow it didnt turn me into a republican, or a slavery lover... or someone who was sore at the union ..it potraited a middle of the road explaination....
i wouldnt have watched it if it was some weird right wing peice of agiprop....
the republicans were really the first party of civil rights...
and MADE this country in many ways....
buT that was the 19th century...
and the culture of the twentieth century is waY different.
and soemhow the repubs became the party exclusion.
I KNOW how, but you wont buy it, and neither may rock.

I understood that,:D, but had to find out, anyway...

AK, I don't trust the Electoral College, I believe in Popular Vote...Even though the Framers gave it to us, to "..guard against a rash act by the people.."

reich and rock
the republican party was reborn in the 70's and eighties, because the democrats at large, no longer represented the MORAL values of the dixiecrats.
and so nixon and then reagan capitalized on this new paradigm. the southern strategy.....im sure youve heard that term spoken. now the south votes pretty much republican
back when the civil rights act was passed???
it wasnt passed along party lines...
it WAS passed along geograpic lines, with the south voting against it...
where are all those moderate northern republicans who voted WITH those who wanted voting rights ensured for minoroites.??? where have they gone?
your party(reichardo) is no longer the party of inclusion....
they have ALWAYS been stingy bastards, when it came to social programs??? but they use to at least CONSIDER progressive civil actions.
