People in the 'ex-gay' business are pedophiles in disguise
.
Operating under the veil of 'religion'; they engage in mental rape instead of physical rape (and sometimes both)

We need to set up a federal hotline so kidnapped gays can call the National Guard for rescue

The "National Guard' is not federal. It's actually a state's militia, and it's commander is that particular state's governor.

And stop trying to federalize EVERYTHING !

In addition to the governors; President Obama can call up the National Guard too; as in the example of Guantanamo on the east end of Cuba

Like so many of the Southern States; the state I live in is dysfunctional and obsolete; and would be better off without its own government

The feds may have to dissolve the state charter to restore functionality

You obviously have NO concept of the nature, function, and history of the governments in the U.S. PLEASE, DON'T VOTE as you are oblivious.

"dissolve the state charter" ???!!! What the heck is that supposed to mean ?!

The STATES made the federal government, NOT the other way around.

And as per The United States Constitution, particularly THE BILL OF RIGHTS, the states retain their sovereignty. Perhaps you should take 20 minutes one day and actually read the U.S. Constitution, and try to understand it.

It's clueless numbskulls like you who endanger our republic. An excellent example of why the Founders did NOT include a "right to vote" in the U.S constitution.

Oh not that crap again.

The issue of voting rights in the United States has been contentious throughout the country's history. Eligibility to vote in the U.S. is determined by both federal and state law. Currently, only citizens can vote in U.S. federal elections.[1] Who is (or who can become) a citizen is governed on a national basis by federal law. In the absence of a federal law or constitutional amendment, each state is given considerable discretion to establish qualifications for suffrage and candidacy within its own jurisdiction.

The SCOTUS Case was referring to the election of ELECTORS TO THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE.

AMENDMENT XII

The electors shall meet in their respective states and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves; they shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President, and in distinct ballots the person voted for as Vice-President, and they shall make distinct lists of all persons voted for as President, and of all persons voted for as Vice-President, and of the number of votes for each, which lists they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate;--The President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted;--the person having the greatest number of votes for President, shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice. And if the House of Representatives shall not choose a President whenever the right of choice shall devolve upon them, before the fourth day of March next following, then the Vice-President shall act as President, as in the case of the death or other constitutional disability of the President. The person having the greatest number of votes as Vice-President, shall be the Vice-President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of electors appointed, and if no person have a majority, then from the two highest numbers on the list, the Senate shall choose the Vice-President; a quorum for the purpose shall consist of two-thirds of the whole number of Senators, and a majority of the whole number shall be necessary to a choice. But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.

Oh and St. John's Newfoundland is in Canada so they don't have the 2nd Amendment right to bear arms like you claimed on that thread.

And you DARE to tell others not to vote!

I was mentioning the right to vote tangentially. That was not teh thrust of my statement.
