**** that guy.
this is why politics sucks. Romney had a stance (against medical marijuana) that you may or may not agree with. fine.

but he's also smart enough to realize that even if he's against legal marijuana, he doesn't want to get caught on camera saying he's going to arrest a crippled guy for smoking weed bc he realizes that's just a horrible use of resources. he's in a no win situation at this point bc the most reasonable stance of "look let's just turn a blind eye to people smoking weed and concentrate on real issues" isn't a legit stance he can take bc then he isn't LAW ABIDING AND CONSERVATIVE. so instead he has to run away from the issue.

Yeah the electoral college is a total joke but I remember those states were supposed to be close or go to Romney and Obama crushed. Obama is the GOAT but even so, a black guy beating someone with Romney's optics in those states means the country is clearly trending in the correct direction.

Unfortunately Hildawg sucks and inspires no joy or hope at all. Still think we might end up feeling the BERN when it's all said and done. I certainly hope so.

he's a Republican that Massachusetts people could get behind. let gay people be gay and not cater to the religious right and restrict gun sales and health care is a good thing but capitalism is ALSO a good thing!

but those stances don't don't fly nationally with the GOP so...he had to change tune or mumble **** about states rights.

Man, I love the way Romney handled that wheelchair pothead. Say what you want about his stance, that is just an all-time epic thing telling. Real leadership.

Hillary is really the only electable candidate IMO. but I'd really like a choice. I hate that to elect a true capitalist I'm also voting in the religious right.

None of the people you think are "true capitalists" actually are.

It's great on so many levels. Ben Franklin actually wanted the national bird of America to be the turkey. I'm pretty sure all birds have both a left and right wing. etc.

Ohio Republicans recently decriminalized paraphernalia and seemingly have no issue with the marijuana decriminalization that has been in place for a very long time.

Re: SE Politics Containment Thread (This Should Be Interesting)

Am I considered a far-left Whacko for openly saying the 2nd amendment should be repealed?

Let states/counties/cities hold referendums on whether or not they want to allow guns in their area. If you live in an area that bans guns, and guns are that important to you, then there are plenty more places in America that will have you.

I think it's a pretty silly issue to be left to State's rights strictly from a pragmatic perspective.
