    Your post is totally irrelevant, not only to the thread but to United's post that you were replying to.
    the difference is Libs are rewarded for corruption..,,

    your post is totally irrelevent to the subject

    What's wrong with an open primary? It's one of the things I like best about Texas.

And remember, the Clintons worked hard to get their boy McCauliffe elected governor in 2013, too. That's one reason I'm glad Ohio is not an open primary State. If you're registered Repub, that's the ballot you get in the primary, and vice versa, and the people at the voting places have those records. Open voting is only allowed in Presidential elections, which I think is fair.

    Greetings, Pero.
    Georgia is and I like it that way. I probably have no business in voting in either the Republican or Democratic Primaries as a Reform Party Member, but what the heck. We don't have party registration, you are just registered to vote, period. But once you vote in the primary, if there is a runoff, you can't switch from Democratic to Republican to vote in the runoff or vice versa. You must vote in the runoff of the party you originally voted in in the primary.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Do you notice why Indiana and Missouri's senate seats remained in democratic hands in 2012?

    In Indiana, the republicans primaried senator Richard Luger, a muti term incumbent, as not conservative enough. The guy who intended to replace Luger, Richard mourdock, proved too far right for the general election and lost the seat to the democrat.

    As for Missouri, the republican canidate, Todd akin, was simply too extreme for the voters and rejected him in favor of keeping the democrat.

    Since the thread topic is Cantor not the corruption in California, educate yourself.

    I know what stop and frisk is. And I'm saying that in an earlier thread, it was claimed that stop and frisk was a "liberal policy."

    NYC's murder rate has NOT climbed. Shootings have, but the murder rate has not.

    Even as shootings rise, murder rate falls in New York City

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - The number of shootings in New York City has spiked by 13 percent so far this year, though the murder rate is on track to hit a 50-year low, a statistical paradox that experts said reflects quick medical response.
    That said, there's little evidence to suggest the correlation between the correlative relationship between more shootings and less stop-and-frisk is a causative one, especially given that a. S&F still exists, and b. the increase in shootings has also been attributed to an increase in gang activity that predates de Blasio.
