    People who take largesse should be happy to get it, and not have the ability to vote themselves more of the same.

    No.

    Informed people can't vote for Democrats, not if their goals are Constitutional.

    They don't vote for most Republicans, either.

    No.

    The Eighteenth Amendment was frivolous.

    You're wrong. I'm informed on the issues, and I believe my goals are constitutional, and I vote democratic.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Obama was elected.

    That was clearly the most ignorant thing Americans have ever done in the entire history of the nation, and I'm including the election of Clinton and the election of Carter in my assessment.

    Re: Amendment to get rid of the Electoral College?

    There are many important things that Congress must be working on

    Our economy

    health care reform
    The trade deficits
    infrastructure and the overall condition of our nation
    education
    the budget and the shortfalls (deficits)
    prison population
    Mexican immigrants
    homosexual rights
    and now this, another controversy, and at this time, not necessary.

    How does voting for Clinton or Obama equal to voting for something unconstitutional?

    Then your belief that you're right is wrong.

    Health care, to name one example, is not a Constitutionally allowed federal concern.

    Nor is education, the arts, the ethanol and farm subsidies, nor almost anything anyone can figure out that a Democrat politician is actually for. You just can't find the authorization for this nonsense in the Constitution. You can pretend, but honest people can see that your emperor is stark butt naked and has waaaaayyy too much cottage cheese on the thighs, as well.
