    It's not a technicality. Obviously, there aren't enough voters who want Conyers on the ballot.

    Not surprising, since Conyers and his compatriots are against voter ID, so why would they think they should have registered voters to sign a petition to get him on a ballot? At least it's consistent with their ideology of anyone that will vote for them should be allowed to vote, even if they aren't a citizen or even not registered to vote. Again, not surprising. Laws and rules don't matter to these folks when they're inconvenient or block them from doing what they want to do.

    Not in this case. It seems that he went out of his way to find a reason to uphold the law, and sided with the 4 liberals.

    I wish I knew why.

    Good for the goose, good for the gander.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I am not againist them if they can be acquired readily and without placing additional burdens on people.

    He is a strict constitutionalist. Should he change that so he only makes rulings you like without regards to the constitution? How very conservative of you...

    Because contrary to what that poster said, he is not consistently conservative.

    Moderator's Warning:
    Judge puts U.S. Rep. Conyers back on primary ballot[W:28]Just a friendly reminder, the topic is not each other.
    I don't attack my constituents. Bob is my constituent now.
    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Name one case that he ruled in a manor at odds with conservatism.
