I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government
THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.

Millions of people had the abillity to vet this President properly so there's really no excuse for casting a vote in his favor.
I'm really sick and tired of the supreme court not understanding their job. Instead of striking it down on constitutional grounds like they should have done, they instead struck it down on the basis that it is outdated. All they ever have to do is stand by the constitution and yet they never do. They don't even do it in cases like this where it is clearly unconstitutional, but instead just make up some stupid basis to strike it down. Pathetic.
Interestingly enough, I happened to read the Voter's Rights Act a few days before the ruling. My initial reaction was this law no longer applied and needed to be removed. I'm not so sure that SCOTUS had Constitutional reasons to do so. Probably should have been repealed legislatively. Though I agree with the outcome, I'm not so sure I agree with the process.
