Trump can't go a day without telling us to be afraid of something.

You call yourself a Christian and in the same breath say that man is inherently good? If each person is the determining factor of their own goodness, what you end up with is a society perpetually at war with itself, and...........oh!.........wait...................! Here’s something that’s in the Christian Bible: “without a vision the people perish”.

What do trump supporters expect him to say? of course he will always claim any poll, news, or event that is negative to trump will be dismissed as "fake news", but what if the trends are correct, and trump is losing support among every demographic except the "poorly educated" white men who make up his base.

It will be so entertaining watching trump twist himself into a pretzel trying to explain why he is losing support among smart people.

The left is taking notes from the rights play book.
They are using them to play the political game against the right.
The right is going to get a good taste of their own medicine.

This is something both parties have done from the beginning. Blind ambition, as always, is the fuel driving all governments!

Flip it, what gives you the right as a minority to tell the majority what they are going to do?

You, as a minority of the country have a right to move to a state where you have majorities of your kind of people that can determine how your state wants to live. In fact I see this as where we are headed, people get fed up with california so they move to states the believe are more free. So then when your more free state that doesn't support health care and doesn't want to participate in federal programs, your people will get unhappy at what the people of other states are getting and move back to a commie socialist state. Your kid will get sick and you will move for the sake of your kids.

As far as I'm concerned ignorant people who don't want to live in democracy can move to red states, keep them red and under performing economically.

And that is the entire point!! The USA is, by design, a federation of sovereign states. That federation has only the power DELEGATED to it BY those states. The Constitution makes this very clear.

Good point!

No, it is should be researching comments made by people who actually worked, and are working, in the energy industry instead of listening to the ideology of the politically driven and deliberately misinformed!

What's funny Blade is that I can tell that you didn't even read what I wrote. To the founders, a Republic and a representative democracy were one and the same. But hey, cherry-pick away, how else could you believe anything...

Here's my question to you Blade how do we elect our representatives if not by individual vote for a individual person with the one who holds the majority the winner? Is that not what we do in a democracy? Even the electoral college is set up for a majority. Our house and senate vote by majority and even SCOTUS is predicated by majority. These are all principles of democracy Blade and if you do not think so then don't vote and that will settle that, problem solved...

The constitution doesn't generally contradict itself very much, the bible a bit more. So those who believe in god, what do they believe when the bible sends mixed messages, which ones do people go by? Many go by the message that is what they want to believe, that fits their personal beliefs. One christian adheres to tenets of loving their fellow man and they have a tolerance for gays, others flip out about gays and latch onto words that are harsher about gays.

My point being the basic fundamental premise of a democracy is one person one vote, all votes being equal whether they be a black, white, hispanic, or muslim.

The concept of taking the power of their one vote away from people is anti constitutional to the core. Given the one person one vote basis there is a conflict of interest that needs to be sorted. Either say we are not a democracy by the people for the people or take a hard look at the very concept of what an electoral college is and what it's for, and determine whether that is more important than the core premise. The united states is the only country in the world that deviates from one person one vote, and it is an idiotic concept.

States have their sovereignty in singular state issues that the rest of the country can't dictate to them that their state government can set the rules on, the united states has an obligation to provide the same basic rights to everyone in the country concerning civil rights. Election rules need to be adopted that standardize rules and procedures that work so that states can't monkey with people's ability to vote the way several states are.

As pointed out by Hayes, since 1992 republicans have won the popular one time but had three presidents, if it were the other way the electoral would have been eliminated a long time ago. Republicans can keep their red states and do whatever they want for those states, but America is unfortunately a dem majority country and the rules need to favor that majority. This minority controlled country is destroying democracy to keep control.

The Constitution guarantees to every State a Republican form of government. That’s a quote.......that’s what it needs no “interpretation “!!

The USA used to have open borders, but now Americans want to live in a country like North Korea.

Americans scream that they hate illegal immigrants, but Americans think that the US can kick out illegal aliens without having a police state.

Do you really believe that the government can get rid of illegals without having a wall, concentration camps, checkpoints, immigration raids, license plate readers, DNA collection, and NSA wiretapping?

Do you honestly think that Americans are never arrested by the Border Patrol?

Do you think that closing the border might prevent Americans from leaving?
