That is not the only thing he lacks, but yes, you are quite right. I concluded after my first few encounters with smokey that it is quite pointless...

Only because you filter out what you don't want to know.

Yup, any liberal will tell you, the Constitution is an outdated document, written by bigoted white guys to enslave the population.

The law is the law. Unless you're a liberal who doesn't like the law and ignore it like their queen who is above the law and preaches there are no consequences for breaking any of them.

after reading my comments .... how did you conclude that Hamilton and Madison equated States to Mob .... it is pointless to continue a discussion with you .... because you seem to lack basic comprehension skills ....

You interjected that point about Madison and the EC.

I think it implies those who hate Trump should jump, perhaps a good idea.

Maybe get Madonna to lead the liberal lemmings to their resting place.

OMG, there are radical Conservatives.


What do you consider a radical conservative ??

where did I get the idea ..... The Federalist Papers #10 .....and I never used the term conservative ..... I used the word electorate ..... try to get your information from relevent history books ... not Wikipedia ....

If you consider the States collectively as a mob, then yeah … It is the American mob.
What happened this weekend across the country was a useless mob. They had no Idea why they were out there other than someone told them to go out and socialize.

See, this is a perfect example of how oblivious you are to your own hypocrisy regarding the Constitution and the ideas of the founding fathers.

You like to constantly proclaim that, "We are not a democracy, we are a republic!", and point out that majority rule = 'tyranny of the majority'

But then in the very next breath, you make an exception for YOUR favored group - "Conservatives". Majority rule by Conservatives is somehow NOT mob rule. You make an exception. You're ok with tyranny of the majority, just so long as YOU and YOUR GROUP is part of that majority mob rule.

You are injecting your own comments into what I have said.

you do not understand the original purpose of the Electoral College ...... refer back to my first post ...

I got what you said. I don't know where you got the idea that Conservatives are considered a mob.

The EC worked exactly the way it was supposed to whereby the states get equal representation, and the vote is not decided by 1 or 2 states based on popular vote.

Sorry Smokey but I heard the speech and it was directed to the population that voted for him. No healing, no uniting, just Trumpisms.
Give him time and he'll prove I'm right on this one.

If you are talking about making government run the way it is supposed to and not be used support the liberal dependents that have made a living at the expense of others, then yes I agree it wasn't a speech for their cause.

If that is really true, then why do you consistently act completely clueless regarding your understanding of the Constitution?

Or perhaps when you say you "studied Constitutional Law", what you mean is that you read a few right wing fringe screeds on the subject, and listen to some right wing pundits rant about the Constitution.

What part am I so clueless about ??

nothing has changed .... as I wrote .... you have no idea as to why the Electoral College was established .... you pretend you know .... but you don't .....

I studied Constitutional Law. So don't try preaching to me about how you think it is supposed to work.

I do not think you have any idea as to why Hamilton and Madison advocated for the electoral college .... I suggest you read the Federalist Papers .... Hamilton and Madison referred to the electorate (you) as the MOB ... the Electorial College was designed so that YOU would not have a direct vote for either the President or Vice President .... please do not write with authority, about subjects that you have limited knowledge of ....

WOW dude … There are no words for where you pulled that rant out from.

Of the 14 Republican candidates, Trump would have been my 15th choice. I understand that no one party should be in power for too long but Trump was just a bad choice. Even his inauguration speech was divisive in it's content and delivery. I never thought I'd say this but I look forward to the day when he's removed from office and Pence becomes President.
I'd rather have Pence, a man I disagree with on a multitude of issues than Trump who lacks integrity and has an ego that won't let anything go. The Office of President shouldn't be feuding with Saturday Night Live, Alec Baldwin or Madonna.
Bill Gates said that the three things he looks for in an employee is Integrity, Intelligence and Drive. Of the three, Trump only has two and that's just not good enough.

There was nothing about his speech that was divisive. If you believe that it was, you didn't listen to it and are regurgitating liberal garbage.

I agree... but you have to admit, the guy is a bit of a hail-mary on the part of our country. (as far as him restoring the integrity of any of the 3 branches)

It is up to each of the branches to keep the others in check. I am somewhat confident that this will happen as they seem to be more eager to keep their own held accountable than the other parties, which I can't begin to understand.
