Changing from "Lock and Load" to "Liberals Own It" without changing you ISP is stupid.

First off, you have to register to vote. If you are illegal, you cannot register to vote. If you are not registered to vote and you show up to vote, you will be given a provisional ballot. Whether a provisional ballot is counted is contingent upon the verification of that voter's eligibility. The provisional ballot is not counted until 7–10 days after election so their vote does not affect the calling of the states to different candidates.

The only reason that a undocumented alien might be given a provisional ballot is because of the law passed by a republican house, a republican senate and signed into law by a republican president called the Help America Vote Act of 2002. Another act forced upon us by republicans that republicans later regretted. lol

Yes.... all you racist right wingers still cannot accept the fact that a Black man is the president.
Actress Angie Harmon rejects the idea of Hollywood elitist who call her a racist just because she disagrees with Barack Obama.

“Here’s my problem with this,” Harmon said.“I’m just going to come out and say it. If I have anything to say against Obama, it’s not because I’m a racist. It’s because I don’t like what he’s doing as President and anybody should be able to feel that way.”

Oh, I remember them alright. I just don't watch FOX or listen to Rush so everything I know about the past two centuries can pass a fact check. You can't say the same.
So you must watch the main stream media which doesn't report anything which opposes Obama at all. You actually do not know anything but what they WANT you to know.

You are really limited!!!!

Republicans lost popular vote twice; now want to ignore it: Editorial
Republicans have lost the White House twice straight, and five of the past six popular votes. Some say it’s time to evolve. Others say it’s just easier to change the rules.
These sore-loser laws, by design, defy the will of the voters.
Here’s how to do it right: Nine states, New Jersey included, want to make the popular vote more important, not less. They’ve passed laws pledging all their electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote, as long as other states with a combined 270 electoral votes do so, too. That would ensure the popular vote winner becomes president.
It’s a simple ideal: The person who gets the most votes should win.

Just because a media outlet tells you what you want to hear doesn't mean the information is accurate.

What would you consider an impartial/reliable source?

Just what is the "Mainstream Media"?

Any credible news outlet who fact checks stories before airing them have been dubbed "Mainstream Media" by fox news and other right wing talking heads.

The term "Mainstream Media" was demonized by Sarah Palin when she referred to them as the Laimstream Media and the republican tea party idiots loved it.

These are the same type people who convinced their followers that the words "American Civil Liberties" meant something dirty or vile. Of course their followers aren't the brightest stars in the sky either.

YES, it's funny the dictator hasn't commented on this ex-cop? WHY, NO COMMENT FROM THE MESSIAH?..... WE'RE WAITING FOR HIS SUPPORT OF THIS EX-COP. And then again, just what if this ex-cop got framed by his cop peers? maybe he is telling the truth, and everything concerning what really happened SHOULD BE BROUGHT INTO THE LIGHT ONCE AGAIN......there were witnesses that never were called to his defense, WHY? Now as he says "he has been ruined and wants revenge on all LAPD officers & families! If this guy was framed then the only way to stop this madness is to come forward and admit what they did to this guy. Now this cop is so mad for what he feels was unjustly done, he has even killed because of his anger towards those he feels ruined him AND WHO KNOWS? HE JUST MAY BE RIGHT. NOW HE DOESN'T EVEN CARE ANYMORE, if he lives or dies.....he just wants to get even and take as many with him as he can, then he will probably kill himself... all BECAUSE HE FEELS HE GOT BETRAYED by his peers.

I want to know what is truly going on in the world and in politics. I make a real effort to watch and read a variety of news sources in order to obtain the facts. I can tell you the main stream media has proven to me they will rarely report anything which reflects negatively on Obama.

It disturbs me that people who only watch and read main stream media receive information that everything around us is improving and Obama is the best President since Lincoln. This is not true but for many people if this is reported in the "news", it must true.

I am not sure there are any sources which are totally impartial but I would rather watch something which reports the good, bad, and ugly and attempt to figure it out myself.

I don't like the guys politics, but his father immigrated to the U.S. from Cuba in 1957 and his mother is a natural born U.S. citizen.

He's a citizen.

"...Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where his parents, Eleanor Darragh and Rafael Cruz, were working in the oil business.[8][9] His father, in 1957 during the Cuban Revolution, was a Cuban immigrant to the United States.[10] His mother, an American, was reared in Delaware, in a family of Irish and Italian descent.[9][11] Cruz's family returned to the U.S. when he was four years old..."

A study cited frequently by critics of a "liberal media bias" in American journalism is The Media Elite, a 1986 book co-authored by political scientists Robert Lichter, Stanley Rothman, and Linda Lichter.[23] They surveyed journalists at national media outlets such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the broadcast networks. The survey found that most of these journalists were Democratic voters whose attitudes were well to the left of the general public on a variety of topics, including such hot-button social issues as abortion, affirmative action, and gay rights. Then they compared journalists' attitudes to their coverage of controversial issues such as the safety of nuclear power, school busing to promote racial integration, and the energy crisis of the 1970s. The authors concluded that journalists' coverage of controversial issues reflected their own attitudes, and the predominance of political liberals in newsrooms therefore pushed news coverage in a liberal direction. They presented this tilt as a mostly unconscious process of like-minded individuals projecting their shared assumptions onto their interpretations of reality.

In a survey conducted by the American Society of Newspaper Editors in 1997, 61% of reporters stated that they were members of or shared the beliefs of the Democratic Party. Only 15% say their beliefs were best represented by the Republican Party.[24] This leaves 24% undecided or independent.

A 2002 study by Jim A. Kuypers of Dartmouth College, Press Bias and Politics, investigated the issue of media bias. In this study of 116 mainstream US papers, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the San Francisco Chronicle, Kuypers stated that the mainstream press in America tends to favor liberal viewpoints. They argued that reporters who they thought were expressing moderate or conservative points of view were often labeled as holding a minority point of view. Kuypers said he found liberal bias in reporting a variety of issues including race, welfare reform, environmental protection, and gun control.[25]
