“Actually JC my original response was to a misguided individual that chooses to think that the tea party i.e. the obstructionists in the HOR could have any insight into our constitution or for that matter Democracy. You are merely a tangential part of that conversation looking for development. I could care less about you or what sort of life you lead because you don't pique my curiosity, whatsoever. Its good though that you feel curiosity towards another mans thoughts as most elephants I speak with do not; perhaps your curiosity may ponder on that.”

“Guess what? I'm no elephant.
"That is the growth of our constitution that you and the other elephants live for and see as a beautiful living document. Sadly, for you and your brethren, you are going to wake up later in life when you have gained a wee bit of insight and see the misuse of your ignorance by your political choices. "
I do love how some people think they know anything about someone just by reading a post they make tho. Thanks for demonstrating how error filled that can be.”
“John Roberts re-interpretation of citizens rights to now include Corporations the right to express themselves because they are people is not on topic? How so? That is the growth of our constitution that you and the other elephants live for and see as a beautiful living document. Sadly, for you and your brethren, you are going to wake up later in life when you have gained a wee bit of insight and see the misuse of your ignorance by your political choices.”

“So, you start out this thread by saying you don't want to go back to supporting the constitution because at one time it didn't include voting rights for women and did include slavery. Then you bounce to corporations writing laws as if that was a response to my post that the constitution grows along with us.. If you want the constitution to grow in a different direction then you need to go thru the process to follow thru on that. BTW, what supposedly do you think my political choices are? Later in life? Again it seems you are assuming me to be of a certain age? Seeing how you know nothing about me I'm curious to see your assumptions.”
“Democrats give the poor and working class a hand-up. Republicans give handouts and bailouts to the rich and Corporations. Only a neanderthal couldn't pick the party that is obviously 10x more destructive to his self-interests.”
“Actually, Reagan was a huge huge liar in the vein of Nixon. Although GWBush made an exceptionally good case as the worst liar of all time but I suppose that is debatable in terms of Nixon's supreme duplicity.”
“Without propaganda Americans might actually demand representation for the masses rather than our current state of 'representing' the top 5%. Not going to happen while moneyed interests still have $$$ to spend.”

“And as long as people don't fact check and vote. I understand why they don't and it has a lot to do with the plan to make them work 24/7 to support their families. Absolutely no time for anything else.”
“If Obama did not have deadweight from the House in his way unemployment would be at 3% instead of the 7% we now have. Kudos to republicans for their successful efforts at keeping millions of Americans from the workforce.”
“Your argument is intellectually void. Business owners in the 60's argued the Supreme Court that private business should be able to descriminate on their beliefs. They wanted to not serve black clients/patrons because it was their business and their beliefs. Jim Berry you need to think about the ideas you put forward. If a business wants to do business in the market place fine but by going into the marketplace you are "consenting" to a set of market regulations and standards.”
“Study after study has found that nationwide, and that includes NC and all these states which have done all this crap, there is .001% fraud. Most of the fraud takes place on absentee balloting, not early voting or voting day votes.

“Now you need to tell the repubs/cons how that affected the elections.”
All the costs surrounding this change for one lousy fraud case a year in NC. But that is not what voter ID is about. Its racism by the governing elite whiter ace in NC to keep their power and keep minorities from having representation through Democracy.”
