    Yeah, if only a bunch of random groups had tax-exempt status, that would have changed everything.

    Guess what? According to the numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau, you're losing.

    But believe what ever you want to believe. That won't cost me a penny.

    Hell, a better argument could probably be made that DENYING people the ability to vote in an election and voice their approval for one candidate over another simply based on their party identification could be the thing that's infringing upon their speech

    If you want to say you have a problem with the open primary notion or that it's a corruption of the system...fine, that's debatable. I would probably even agree with that to a certain degree. But you're trying to suggeset that:

    1. Their vote is nullified
    2. Their "speech" is being surpressed

    And factually those things are just not true. Disliking the process doesn't make them true.

    No one can stop time and/or change.

    Where should we meet?

    In fairness, it would seem that where you live, willingness to be invaded by foreign countries is part of the culture. Here, not so much.

    I don't know for sure how it works in Virginia, but in Tennessee I'm not a registered ANYTHING. So each primary I choose which primary to vote in. There is no 'right' for the GOP to refuse my participation in their primary, even though I lean democratic. In Virginia the rules the legislature set for their elections explicitly allow for people to cross 'party' lines (if they even register with a party) and vote in any primary they choose. How is that a violation of anyone's rights? Politicians set the voting rules, and you're saying if the rules work against them in isolated cases that their 'rights' have been violated. That's insane.

    And the reason many of us oppose the latest batch of Photo Voter ID laws is they are a solution in desperate search of a problem to solve. I also get a little tired of right wingers conflating "Voter ID" with "Special Photo Voter ID." Fact is in TN we've had to show ID forever. What changed is the type of ID allowed - instead of a broad list of acceptable ID, in addition to the normal checks during registration, the polls only accept a narrow list, with many forms of ID accepted for years without ANY issues no longer allowed.

    I'm completely with you here. That's why I love the two party system, where one party has a duty to temper the other. Gridlock is good.

    That's a different discussion - about term limits.

    There will always be someone in command. Always. And those that are will always be in the cross hairs of the opposition, both inside and outside of their party.

    I like Graham. He isn't my favorite by a long shot, but I respect him, his intellect and his commitment. Even though they're from SC, and I'm from NC, there are a few really good politicians that are from SC - Trey Gowdy is one as well.

    Then why have a primary? Just have one big General Election where everyone throws in their hat?

    If you live long enough you'll see it happen.

    Whether you believe it or not is up to you, but your belief or disbelief won't change a thing.
