Although when it suits barefoot, he will look to the actions rather then the literal letter of the law.
Take the anti-atheist legislation that exists in various state constitutions. Are these laws in place? Yes, they certainly are.
Using barefoot's logic, that's as far as it goes. The fact that in practice they aren't used, shouldn't count for anything.
Nor should the twelth amendment that clearly states that the Electoral College, and only the Electoral College, votes for the president of the United States.

Yet, Barefoot claims that the people do.

You "demonstrated" the members of the House of Common had the power to dissolve Parliament for ten days before finally admitting that you were wrong.
Nice try at switching the focus of my post.

My post was speaking about -your- claims (and nobody buys that you "really" meant the Lords or you would have explicitly said so) that the CoE appoints MPs.

They don't. They don't appoint anybody.

Is this "you were wrong about the Queen not dissolving parliament!" the only thing you can parrot? AFC fans are derided for living in the team's glorious period in the 1980s; you are fastly going down that route.

And of course, I pointed out that you were wrong minutes after you posted it.
Why anybody would admit this is beyond me.

Life. Get one.

And you confused the House of Commons with the Lords, not me.
When you say "members of parliament" expect it to be interpreted as MPs.

I still maintain that you knew exactly what you were doing here and meant both chambers.
barefoot2626 wrote:
<quoted text>
And you insisted you voted for people that you never voted for.
I never claimed that we voted for anyone other than MPs. It took until I demonstrated that the CoE plays no role in appointing MPs to the Commons before you started claiming that you meant the Lords and only the Lords.

To normal people, that is moving the goalposts.

I merely pointed out that you lied.
We have established that you do not know what lies are. Like Buck, you think lies are false statements made on ignorance.

Lies are intentional statements with the purpose of deception. Never would I lie, let alone on a trivial internet forum.

Tell us, darling: WHO APPOINTS THE MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE OF LORDS?
It doesn't take three paragraphs, it can been done with one word.
If you have ignored my reference from Wiki twice before, what good is citing it for a third time?

The Electorial College Vote Is Yet Another Tool To Bypass The Peoples Wishes. Corruption Abounds......Voter Fraud
The Last Election Was Won This Way, And It Seems To Be Worse This Time, Liberal Judges Refusing To Mandate IDs For Voters, Even Though States Are Giving Them Out Free.

Personally, I Think Hanging Is To Good For The Treason Going On.

The Mess We Have Now, Is A Accumulation Of Failure As Presidents Since Reagan. Both Sides Contributed Plenty To Our Current Situation.

I Would Vote Third Party, And LIke Paul, Except For His Esentrics, However, Your Throwing Your Vote Away If You Do...And Basically Giving It To Odumbo Hussien.

Ron Paul would be great if we could have congress filled with people like him. What eccentrics of Paul dont you like,,??

Romney might be better in a few small ways...But he still will add trillions to debt and bury this nation....just ot as fast maybe..
