    More than memorization, we need a good IQ test. If you're not a classic academic, you can't vote. No dumb people f'n us over so much.

    Why don't you have a "right to vote"? Seems to me that was set up long before you moved there or I was born

    What are you whining about now? If people like me all moved away, many people who are like you would starve to death

    did you know that more Americans can tell you the two finalists of whatever was the last American Idol than can name the two federal senators from their own home state?

    I'm all for DC voting rights, but this is about the Presidential election, not Congressional representation. DC residents do in fact get electoral votes when it comes time to vote for the President.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Romney only because I don't want Obama to appoint 4 more judges. Then again if Obama polls remarkably well in California I'll just vote for Gary Johnson.

    Uhhh..... I don't typically "play" things that I have no clue what they are.....
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Yes, because voting the status quo all these years has worked so well for us.
