Oddly enough, the “superdelegate” concept is a throw-back to what the founders originally set up for our election process: The Electoral College. These were supposed to be people from each state sent as states representatives to the national elections whereby, at that time, the state delegates would then vote for a specific candidate. The result would mean, no one could possibly tell who would be the President. Oh, by the way, the same process would then determine that the person who got the second most votes would become the Vice President. Obviously today, the Constitution has been amended and the states supercede the constitution by making their own process to get delegates to promise to support a given candidate. Now, a President and Vice President are elected through citizens voting for a delegate who promises to support a particular candidate; it is as close to a popular vote as is possible without actually amending the Constitution….which is the intention of the political powerhouses.

And after closing Gitmo, Obama will give the land back to Cuba so it cannot be used again.

I too am in favor of a single Spring primary. All this caucus stuff is nonsense and only serves to let the money people know who to put their money behind, it does nothing for the country or the election process.
A voice of reason.
Considering how small a number of voters that are even aware of what process their own states follow, as there are way too many goofy formats, non-polling places in a general election precincts, and underhanded 'party' people involved, a definite change is needed for the primary process.

What a sniveling whiner; it’s just a caucus, not even a primary election. Folks, Trump is not Presidential material.
Not even close to being Presidential. Certainly not Commander-In-Chief material. Can you imagine this blowhard having the power to deploy troops?
Trump: "Canada is so unfair to us...so unfair. They refused to let my old company, which is now run by my son, build a casino in Ottawa. It's so unfair. It would have been YUGE! It would have been Fantastic! It would have made Canada a shining star in the Global community. So unfair.
Therefore, I am ordering the 101st Airborne to invade Canada. Right after breakfast."
Notice that somebody is always mistreating him, unfair to him, they’re disgusting, they’re mean, they’re not nice, and they are losers?
What about us Mr billionaire? What about the people who lost their properties? Was that fair?
The democrats would shred his candy ass. Hillary plant anyway.

The gist of the debate is even greater than this: did you know mosquitoes have killed more people than all the wars of the world combined, but Liberals chose to outlaw DDT which since it was outlawed, million of Africans have died from mosquitoes. Bleeding hearts? Not so much! They just want to control people and have their way. Where is the outcry against mosquito larvae? Who is not in jail, because they let mosquitoes grow? What are we doing here? the real killers are allowed to sting anyone they want to and nothing is being done to them. I think we should outlaw mosquito stingers, what a say?! Let’s go rank them suckers off those bugs; we have the government behind us. oh no, I guess it was the government that allowed so many people to die protecting the mosquito.
First off, it wasn't because DDT was hurting the poor mosquitos. It was because it was hurting the already endangered falcons and eagles that were eating the contaminated bugs. The bigger problem with DDT is that it was harming people too. I agree that something should be done about the mosquitos, and many things are being done, and they are having results, though slowly. But DDT was not the right answer, and it is a good thing that it is gone.
"Mosquitoes have killed more people than all wars of the world combined"? Do you have any facts to support this ridiculous claim? Regressives are so easily duped by any charlatan who wants control them.

: an unmanned aircraft or ship guided by remote control or onboard computers, that’s Merriam Webster’s definition of drone. These quad copters are not drones, they are a toy, a hobby, a nuisance, just like the fixed winged toys men have played with for years, but they certainly do not qualify as a DRONE, so let’s stop calling them what they are not.

Nero, you at least admit having a baby out of wedlock is a sin. So then, why rejoice about sin? Hey I got an idea, let’s praise the rapists, and child molesters in and out of jail. Afterall, sin is sin, as you put it, so let’s not judge those people either.
Didn’t David and Bathsheba rejoice at the birth of Solomon? As I recollect they were adulterers. Child is always a blessing. As for the other sinners please get real.
So, you are qualified to throw the first stone. She didn't abort the baby. BTW, there is forgiveness for all if they will receive it - you included.
You're not here to judge, are you.

This interview shows just how incompetent the conservative elites are. Kurt scoffs at the recent establishment presidential offers, yet dislikes a person that stands for something (Trump). Snide remarks about horse riding or beach walking is all these people have today. It is hard to understand why these guys are so critical of an American, as opposed to what the party wants us to vote for.

I like that Trump has stirred things up, but he has one glaring flaw; he acts like a spoiled brat, who thinks belittling everyone else, makes his light shine brighter. We know you are old Donald, now try to grow up
The main problem is people read too much into Trump. He acts the way he does to get media attention and draw the fire away from everyone else. He has been playing a tactical role in all of this, but I think few see that.
Trump has the same demeanor as Obama. He has a similar ideology too.
He's incable of that!!

“Conservatives” like S.E. Cupp are the problem with the Republican party. In this debate she wants to offer foreigners legal constitutional status just because they want to come to America. Once upon a time, the number of immigrants that were allowed in this country, had to be sponsored, then they spent time being assimilated into our system and culture and they were required to pass a test and learn English in order to become a citizen the American Constitution protects, but not until then. Let us not forget we are talking about a legal document that was designed for a specific country. Heck, the real question is why don’t the immigrants stay in their own country and change what is going on in there? Tell me, were Americans migrating to foreign lands when we had our civil war? Did Americans go to France, Germany, England and try to change their way of life because they wanted political asylum? NO!
They also had guns Zorch, and could defend their nation. These people in Syria, and other places, don't have guns, and can't defend themselves against ISIS. There's one difference.
Look, we DO have a "Muslim" problem in the world today, but I'm curious to know why you think usurping the Constitution is any kind of "solution"???
There seems to be two choices in this debate: 1: Let refugees flood in here, and risk ISIS infiltrating them, or 2: Keep every single Muslim out.
This is what we call "False Choices". There is ANOTHER REMEDY, which doesn't require us to bring them here, and doesn't require us to abandon our principles either.
Allow me to offer up a THIRD solution: Kick their ass OVER THERE, and establish "buffer zones", "refugee zones", or "safe zones", which are protected by NATO troops, or American troops OVER THERE. They don't have to come here, and we don't have to trash our Constitutional principles and create "religious tests" either.
This argument that it's all or nothing is a FALSE CHOICE, which Trump, like liberals on the other side, is exploiting for political points.
Cruz is actually the voice of reason and measure. Like Cruz, I understand there's a THIRD CHOICE, and that we don't have to usurp our Constitution, but we don't have to bring those refugees HERE either.
Trump's plans ALL increase the size of governmental power, and I'm baffled that "small government conservatives" are supporting him.

This is not the correct article to write this but, there are many sects of Christians but only one will reveal the way to reconciliation with God. There is only one Islam, but the many murderers will be the ones who dictate to the rest, their way to Allah. These will become their “spiritual leaders in the Caliphate” but we see them as radicals. They are not radicals, they are what Islam believes their religion should be all about, but only a small percentage are willing to do the work required to conquer the world. Christians? Well, we would rather argue about just who is a Muslim or a radical Muslim or is what they are doing work place violence? WAKE UP!!!!
There are lots of Christian pastors, Bible translators, soul-winners, missionaries, relief workers and philanthropists doing tremendous acts of selfless good but you never hear anything about them in the news unless they've been slandered by leftists or kidnapped by Islamic terrorists.
One day things will turn around and no one will even know what a jihaddist or a snarky atheist is or ever was.

This president is immigrating terrorists and shipping them across the USA at the expense of the American taxpayer. When an event occurs caused by a terrorist in the USA, it mean Obama has blood on his hands and should be prosecuted as an accomplice. Presidents are not untouchable. They too, need to answer to the laws they are supposed to defend, by the people they are supposed to protect.

It looks to me like the pew survey argues against the title of their article. The very first paragraph states 58% say offensive speech is okay. Done. Survey over. The Title is a lie!

Hey, I got an idea. Why don’t we start a protest for the Appalachian people who lost their homes and farms when the government decided to build dams which flooded the farm lands?
Where are their spokesmen?

The elephant in the room? Demonstrators admitted they are being paid to riot through funds from George Soros: why hasn’t he been arrested for inciting riots in American cities?
Where is the DOJ and the Congress on this issue? Why should cops put their lives on the line when the politicians and the DOJ close their eyes to reason for all the destruction?
That is 100% fiction.
Why post it?
I think Alinsky's heirs are also chipping in.

The crux of the medical problem is the Pharmaceuticals. After the AMA was invented, pharmaceuticals controlled pricing and “allowable” medicines. Pharmaceuticals are behind the notion of disallowing over the counter herbal remedies. Follow the money! Then you will see why the cost of all things medical, continue to rise, no matter what is done through legislation (which they lobby for themselves). Did you know, 100 years ago you could buy heroine at your local apothecary? Now, we need the AMA to approve what is acceptable.
Natural ingredients are most often preventative in nature which is good. But we need modern medical doctors when the Sh it hits the fan. It's like on sept 12th, 2001. No one woke up and said, "I wish Al Gore was in charge." My beef with the medical industry is that there is too much cya going on. We really need Tort reform.

Anything on a hard drive is always recoverable, but the more important question is Where did she move those emails to?
You could be accused of believing Obama too, if you think she does not have those historical documents stashed away somewhere. Let’s get out best working on this, surreptitiously, like hiring the best hackers there are, or, get them out of jail to do the job.

So Obama doesn’t think the President has the right to issue executive orders where taxes are concerned yet he do so some 20 times while trying to make Obamacare palatable. But, what’s new? He’s a lying liar.
only a king would say something like that and he ALWAYS LIES ALWAYS PERIOD

It’s all very simple; the theaters charge too much to see a movie. As a child I paid 10 cents then a quarter, and on Saturdays, for a dime you could see 30 cartoons. Now, accounting for inflation, I do not believe a quarter translates into $9.50 – 11.00 to see a movie. Theater owners say they have to up their prices on concessions because they do not make enough money off the ticket price to keep open, SOOO concessions are also sky-high. Result? Stream; wait till it comes out on DVD, or fugitaboutit!
10 cent movie? did you have to turn the crank yourself?
I'll bet you saw the original release of Birth of a Nation!
I love 3D but at an Imax theater we're talking around $16.

Most of the great Thespians are those whose lives have never been revealed. For the most part, they are schizophrenic; they do not have or do not know what a normal life is and often seek help in booze or drugs, which only compounds the problem. For some reason, they have suppressed their childhood and created characters they can live as, so as not to face the truth. If a chemical imbalance is present in a persons brain, it can be repaired but a person must be willing to submit to the tests and the treatment. Robin Williams made a choice to commit suicide, BUT was it the real Robin Williams? we don’t know. Who does? Is there anyone out there that knew Robin Williams the man, and not the many faces he gave us during his acting career?
