Or just eliminate those “victimless crime” laws, those that harm no one but certain corporations’ profits.

“I’d rather subsidize a prison to keep it’s doors open than subsidize Planned Parenthood to campaign for Hillary Clinton and butcher millions of babies.”
And I’d rather the state/county/city use my tax dollars to operate prisons directly, than farm it out to some private for-profit entity that could convince politicians or judges to criminalize more things in the hopes of keeping their precious little profit centers running.

Exactly. Texas should be much higher than 28th place, but they’re dragged down by their 49TH place in personal freedoms. (Thank God for Kentucky.)

Indeed. George Wallace et al. were all about the “self-preservation” of the white race.

I just wish he could’ve worded that better. No matter what he really meant, the MSM is gonna make a ton of hay out of this.
It doesn't matter what he meant. It matters how it was understood. And a lot of people (as evidenced by this very comments section) are already clutching their guns, ready to water the tree of liberty with Hillary's blood. All you need is one crazy person getting lucky. Agree or disagree with political opponents, one should not wish for their death.

Let’s hope that the courts don’t rule in the SJWs’ favor. If that can be construed as a racist symbol, ANYTHING is fair game, and freedom of speech/press is toast.

It’s such BS. They’ll hijack any word and claim it’s offensive to black people.
I caught hell from one of my Twitter followers because I used the word “savage”, which has the same problem as “thug”, apparently.

I’d also like to add it’s not just the absence of jobs, it’s the runaway inflation of basic things people need, such as a place to live, education and transportation. Food and phone service are relatively cheap these days, so I’m not worrying about those things. But when entry-level cars cost $15,000, two-bedroom homes sell for $200,000 (or a million-plus in the Bay Area) and people still paying for student loans decades after they graduated college, it’s no wonder everyone’s clamoring for a wage increase. (And yes, I’m aware that a crapton of government regulations and restrictions are a major contributor to the high cost.)

Oh please… if Ted switches parties, he’ll more likely join the Libertarian Party, not the Dumbocrats. #FumpTruck

Is that like Black Don’t Crack? Gay Don’t … Fray?

Remember that poll of 58% who wanted someone other than Trump or Hillary, you vote-shamers. :P
 July 21, 2016 at 10:24am
Remember who won the Texas primary, pal.
Plenty of folks here who’ll still ditch the Trump Train in favor of the Fump Truck. :P

Well, when the convention is deliberately flooded with Trumpa Loompas, I’m not surprised that the audience was that hostile.
I definitely see Ted’s point though. Defend the family honor, even if it costs you your good name in the Trumpublican Party.

Well, when your choices are “crybaby” or “cuckold”…

At least give him some credit for standing up for the 2nd Amendment… check out “Man’s Best Friend” on the Death Certificate album.

They’re songs, people. Should Johnny Cash have been indicted for lyrics about murdering people (Delia’s Gone among others)? You wanna slap some cuffs on Miranda Lambert (Gunpowder & Lead) or Dixie Chicks (Goodbye Earl)? (Yeah, I’m sure a lot of you would love to see the latter happen…)

I don’t want that guy anywhere NEAR a Veep or Cabinet position. His hatred of cannabis is just one of many reasons.

But it’s Mob Rule per state. Whoever gets the most votes gets ALL of the EC votes, not a proportional allocation according to vote percentage. That doesn’t sound like a fair system to me, just another “majority rules” action.

I would have more respect for the Electoral College if all states went proportional like Nebraska, instead of the travesty we have now that is the “winner-take-all” policy.

The electoral college lost its integrity when almost all of the states went to a winner-take-all system binding every single vote per state to the winning candidate. Delegation without representation, I call it.
If all the other states emulated Nebraska’s proportional system, more parties would have a fighting chance to gain power instead of the Big Two having a stranglehold on the electoral system and the rogue-vote-shaming we have going on today as a result.
