    Maybe one day you'll dial down the hackishness to a reasonable level, but I doubt that day will EVER come.

    Are you going to stalk me around the forum again today?

    But, I will add this as I did some time ago with a group of youth's bemoaning our issues here...."When was the last all candidates meeting you went to and made a fuss?" What has always amazed me is that I learned my stuff in America. We linked arms and faced bayonets and we got our asses "arrested" - they drive you ten blocks and let you go. And then I look at the birth of the Tea Party. All they had to do was meet and the liberal press went ape****.

    At the time of the government shut down i asked what would happen if every Vietnam vet occupied a federal park in DC?
    What would happen if 50 to 100 people wearing signs hat said "no more lies" showed up at both their local nominating meetings to influence the vote. With that I am reminded of some people in rural BC who were fed up with the choices so about 50 of them helped get their guy nominated at the Liberal party event, then turned around and got the same guy elected at the NDP meeting a week later. It didn't stick but it sure woke people up.

    Then there was my great motto of the 60's "suit up, show up, throw something" today it's cheap shots but you get the idea.
    Yep, it all boils down to getting involved. Voting is the average American involvement in our political process. No more, no less. But in any presidential election only a bit more than half of Americans even bother to vote. So that mean 45-50% depending on the presidential election do not get involved at all. Then around 38% average in midterms bother to vote, that mean 62% of all Americans do not get involved. Fewer than 10% bother to vote in a primary which picks the two candidates that will face each other in November. But a whole lot of Americans will bitch about their choices.

    But so far those who are involved only voted. How many actually worked on a campaign outside of putting a bumper sticker on their car. I think for most Americans, non-involvement outside of bitching is their motto.
    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.

    Kobie, I dont stalk anyone-its not conducive to meaningful discourse. I think perhaps you overestimate the brilliance of your signature eye-roll emoticon.

    How can things be worse? Don't answer that. Because as soon as I say that, things gets worse. I take it you mean gerrymandering of state legislative districts. Congressional gerrymandering would be irrelevant to choosing a senator. I would love to see gerrymandering outlawed. Each state has the power to do exactly that, but won't. You see the party in power in the state uses gerrymandering to ensure they stay in power.

    Nonsense. People learn about platforms through the news and other sources and discuss various political issues at home, the office and during recreation. I can't go a day without a political conversation initiated by someone, even at a place like a bar.

    Why do you discount ground level education and interaction?

There has only been one AG in years who was actually the best available lawyer for the JOb. It was acting AG Peter Keisler Ashcroft wasn't bad. Bill Barr was pretty top flight as was Carter's last AG Benjamin Civillettti
    You mean Peter can't look at a tit Ashcroft?

    Yes, I do. And I know the states won't, which is why the feds need to step in. Gerrymandering is the single greatest and most prevalent tool of disenfranchisement that exists.
