Why bother having the people vote in the primaries if the delegates are not at any point bound to the will of the people? This guy is trying to set a legal precedent that will nullify the will of the people in the primaries. I guess Jeb still has a chance.
That's exactly what I was thinking. Why not just have all of the delegates pick the candidate for us and bypass the American voters?
But I pray not.
Idiots like this are the reason we have Alternates. Take the Case, Dismiss the Case (It's stupid), Dismiss the Delegate (for being stupid), Activate an Alternate, Send them to the Convention. Problem Solved.
I'm sorry, You volunteered to be a Delegate, Delegates represent the will of the people. The People voted for Trump. You voice the vote of those people whatever that will may be.

Virginia law states: “Delegates and alternates shall be bound to vote on the first ballot at the national convention for the candidate receiving the most votes in the primary unless that candidate releases those delegates and alternates from such vote.”

House Panel Uncovers Possible Violations
So. The house has proven it’s ineffectiveness at investigating violations. Why waste taxpayer money on another one. The house should dissolve all their panels and stop wasting the time and money.

Sounds like a set up for Parliament overriding the vote and staying. They’ll use the drop in stocks to scare the people into begging Parliament to save them from their own “recklessness”. They’re fools if they fall for it. The EU is a sinking ship. No one who stayed on the Titanic survived.

The grey stands for “no vacancy”. It’s not that we’re anti- immigration it’s just that we’re already overpopulated. Sorry, but I’m sure you understand.

“It’s not the U.K. referendum that would make Europe fall apart,” he said. “It’s the lack of solutions to problems, whether its low wages, high unemployment or the terrorist threat.”
So true. Once the rest of the EU sees the UK doing better the exit will accelerate. Fear of the unknown will no longer hold it together. Europeans will figure out that central control fails because one size fits all solutions don’t exist. Now if Americans would wake up perhaps they would understand the the federal government has become our version of the EU and demand it return the states powers or just dissolve. The anti-federalist were right. Federalism is socialism wearing lipstick and is more dangerous than any perceived danger of not having a federal government. If the states can’t come together to defend each other without a federal government then we were never united to begin with. Trading liberty for security results in neither regardless of how it’s done. Todays federal government is proof positive of that. The constitution is a complete failure at keeping government in check. It has no teeth and is easily disregarding by the individuals in DC. Start hanging politicians for violating it and maybe it will have some effectiveness. Otherwise it may as well be tp.

Merrill said that Clinton “has always made an effort to be transparent since entering public life, whether it be the release of over 30 years of tax returns, years of financial disclosure forms, or asking that 55,000 pages of work emails from her time of secretary of state be turned over to the public.”
What about the transcripts of her speeches to wall street? Or were we supposed to forget about those?
Yep....and ALL of what she HAS released has been RIGGED AND/PR SELECTED for release,
by her "Buds" in IRS, and the State Dept.
It's those darn emails that SHOW UP in others email boxes FROM HER,
Calendars & her Speaking Engagement Transcripts that she CAN'T seem to get around! :)
IF she could, I'm pretty sure, they too, would be unavailable.
Hillary Clinton - QUEEN OF DELETE!

The next president can only be a disaster if he or she goes along with congress. Hillary definitely will and Trump likely will. That would make the status quo in congress the problem. Obama only gets to be a dictator because congress allows it. Likely because he is advancing the agenda the RINOs want. Hillary will be even more popular with the RINOs because she is a warmonger too. Since I always vote independent, I like the idea the of one being electable this year but doubt it will happen. My only point is that congress is a much bigger problem than the presidency at this point. That being said the idea that Trump would be a bigger disaster than Hillary is absurd. He can only buck the establishment or get along. So he can either be as big of a disaster as Hillary or less of one. I encourage republicans to go independent but understand that without dumping the republican party forever, nothing will be fixed. As long as your voting republican your telling the likes of McCain and McConnell that you like what they’re doing. If you don’t believe me then go back and look at their reactions to 2010,2012 and 2014 congressional election results. The republican party is as progressive as the democrats. Your not going to unrot a bushel of apples by tossing in a fresh one. The president can only sign legislation passed by congress. There is no way congress will pass legislation a non progressive wants. Being independent this year and republican in 2020 won’t fix anything.

They fake attacks overseas. Why would this be a surprise?
They are master propagandists....and "lying" is allowed by the Quran to further their aims.

The UK could flush the 350 million pounds a week down the toilet and get more for it than dumping it into the EU.
Same could be said of the money we dump into the UN and NATO. The global fiat currency system run by the central banks is a one way ticket to Greece. The Brits were wise to dump it even if they didn’t understand what they were doing. We should be so lucky here.

More likely they’ll remember mom getting arrested for spanking them. Next time it will be the kids that call the police. It may have been them who called this time.

Osama never had any problem acquiring guns. He was well connected to the black market. Just like buying drugs. Want some? No problem. Even if you are currently in prison.
Eichenwald is too stupid. These perps get their guns from the black market unless they lie like Mateen did…so even if you put people on the watch list they will still get guns. This law would only keep law abiding Americans from getting guns which is the agenda of the left– like communist countries where millions of people have been annihilated by the government who took the guns away…is this guys dad a nazi?? That was the thinking of Hitlers regime…..

If the graph is accurate then the country is doomed since it shows that at least half of America is willing to allow government to change or ignore the constitution at will. It’s “shall not be infringed”, a legal amendment to the constitution or the document means nothing.
An overly simplistic view of the words of the 2nd Amendment is the bread and butter of gun nuts...
...the idea that firearms cannot be regulated or certain types of arms banned from private ownership has absolutely no basis in reality or historical accuracy...

Maybe if democrats stood for something they would get more respect.
He does the radio bit, other folks do this site. And yes the ads and running script and late news suck at times. TrumpBart on the other hand.. Well, there you go.

They can vote however they like. They are not going to be allowed to leave. Their own rulers will make sure of that.
 June 23, 2016 at 10:13am
Politicians are no longer even trying to hide the fact that they view themselves as rulers, not representatives. Sadly, the people accept it and support it. Things will only get worse until we hit bottom. Then we’ll stay there for a hundred years or more. At least we did it all “for the children”.
Progressives demand rulers. Government by the people is abhorrent to them. They have never encountered a dictatorship that they didn't love and support.
 June 22, 2016 at 10:37pm
Why? Let them sit there until election. It’ll prevent more damage. Anything worth passing would never get through either chamber or be signed by the president anyway. They should let the democrats sit there and give we the people a break from anymore “pass it to see what’s in it” legislation more a few months. Who knows, it might make congress more popular.

Young people use the internet for Facebook and possibly shopping. Neither is very useful for being informed.
Everybody I know who is addicted to Facebook games is 45+, just saying. And I know most millenials are better at being indoctrinated than being informed, but it's the older generations who have gotten us into the mess we're in now, which is largely what drives people my age to electronic escapism in the first place. It's not our fault the system is broken and the future seems so hopeless.

It would be more effective to simply outlaw insurance. The same way the 30 mortgage allowed housing costs to skyrocket, insurance allows health care to skyrocket. Insurance is nothing more than privatized socialism and leads to the same result. Eventually the system runs out of other peoples money. That’s why insurance must be mandated to get everyone involved. Just like fully socialized countries like N Korea must force people to stay to continue to have a population.
You have correctly described the concept. Insurance SHOULD be a savings account set up by you for the purpose of taking care of healthcare emergencies. Insurance companies saw an opportunity to make money while helping out people. (And yes, the original concept started as groups getting together, pooling donations to a general fund to take care of the group.) Over the years it morphed into what we had which was in need of an overhaul because it fed rising prices. The big problems started when politicians began telling people that insurance is a "right", not a responsibility. Or a privilege offered by companies enticing the most qualified employees with benefits..
When the government gets involved you can bet they just want more of what's in your pocket.
