    I really hope he loses. Everything I see about him is the worst of the worst. He has to be one of the top three most destructive people running this country.
    I agree .
    He's for sale.
    Reminds of the the Team Owner in 'The Natural' who wants to throw the series.
    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.

    What is there is the Constitution, as it exists today, do you take issue with?

    I don't necessarily have any problems with the constitution, I'm not a legal scholar. I was responding to the complaint about liberals not following the constitution. I don't believe it should be blindly adhered to just because its the constitution. If we find better ways of doing things and it is in conflict with the constitution we should carefully review WHY this is occurring and use that to make an informed decision about whether to proceed with straying from it.

    IOW, we should use the amendment process if necessary, not judicial activism...

    No, my thinking is that if the issue is important enough, we will and should change our governing document, but if it's not, then shopping the issue to the courts is simply bastardizing that document leading to the divisiveness we see today...

    Of course, she's much better looking than turtle-guy. That has to count for something.
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.
    This group is the worst enemy of America and its freedoms. It includes, but is not limited to, all Trump supporters.

    While I too have much disgust for McConnell, replacing him with a Conservative is the answer, not this twit the dems are running out there.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
