Oh I agree the primary was 100% rigged for Hillary. Not the general election which is what I was referring to above. You know the election in which at almost every campaign stop Trump kept saying it was rigged, but then he won and had nothing else to say.


If the primary was rigged, she and her backers surely tried for the general election.

IMO I think without cheating she would not have even gotten the popular vote in the general election either.

She sucked so bad that amount of rigging that would have had to happen especially in the non big liberal states for her to win the General election , would have been impossible to perform.

However I'm willing to bet it surely wasn't for lack of trying.

The use "regulated" at the time must be held in the meaning of the word at the time, not whatever the present day mis-definition says. The militia is equally clear, and further clarified by the "Dick Act." But like you said, interpreting with respect to the original intent is understandable and necessary, but attempting to re-define the document is not
