Scholar Hans von Spakovsky of the conservative Heritage Foundation and author of Who’s Counting?: How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk.

"It is correct that there is not an explicit provision in the Constitution guaranteeing the right to vote," he said, "but several amendments guarantee the right to vote at age 18, free of racial discrimination, and protected by the Equal Protection doctrine."

Also the Electors are to be decided BY the people to do their will. The Elctoral college is a perversion of that.


No, they don't. Those Amendments state that you cannot be denied a right to vote for reasons of age, race, or gender. They don't specify that you actually can vote.

No, like that made him swear to stay on the Republican ticket just to dump him.


So why they let him in in the first place when he's so divisive and insulting to everyone he meets? They must have known this about him beforehand…

Letting him in the door to trash the place only makes things that much easier for the Democrats to win.

I think they were fooled by him at the outset. He 'promised' to be a good boy and then resorted to his usual behavior.

Like who didn't see that coming?

Or its all a big dog and pony show, the whole thing scripted from the beginning. They already know who's going to be president but keep up the appearance its a 'race'.

actually REAd what it says. Another poster said earlier where Im getting the following though. the people in each state according to their laws ELECT REPRESENTATIVES. And the ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES elect who the people told them to vote for. Its a REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY AKA a republic.

Again CAPS means EMPHASIS.

That's how it works for most offices, but the the EC isn't bound to vote the way their state decides in a general election. In a primary which we're discussing right now, the parties aren't even obligated to have voting, and it's only been a relatively recent thing where they've even had the public vote on a candidate, they used to be determined internally.
