They aren’t what we thought they were.
The rules, that is.
Folks, I’m at a point where I can not, I say can not stand it. I’m as heated as Yosemite Sam, confounded as Foghorn Leghorn, and as perturbed as Daffy Duck. The only things I am not, are as racist as Bugs Bunny, or a brute, like Crusher:
Before I came to believe that he was recruited and trained by the CIA to be their in-house counsel, I thought barack Obama was the guy I thought he was. I thought he was a dude who hit the streets and worked it to the top-seat. I certainly believe he has accomplished great things, yet I understand now that the humans which inhabit the office of POTUS are a continuation of one another, over time. That being said, I feel his intelligence and mastery of US constitutional law would have gotten him a top-job with any firm, anywhere in the world. But he was touched by the unseen hand early, and the man wanted office. THE office. At my age, participating in my fifth election, I feel that this is as close to truth as it gets:
The presidential seat is not promised to anyone, yet each election there is a candidate who has the favor of some big, big money and special interests, and the race is theirs to lose. I can’t explain why, but I believe Barack Obama is a CIA agent who is functioning as their in-house counsel from the position where the US constitution can be rewritten with ease.
I certainly do not care where Obama was born, how much time he spent in the Phillippines, or what his intention was with the affordable care act.
Here is my 3 up, 3 down with the last 8 years.
- Up with marriage equality getting passed on his watch, I do not care who financed it.
- Up with Cuba. All the way, up, Chief.
- Up with commuting the sentences of nearly 500 Americans who were jailed for drug offenses.
And now, down. . .
- Down with the NDAA the rotten sore on the face of mother Earth that is US Military Detention Center Guantanamo Bay, Cuba
- Down with the stroke of your pen that legalized the rule-of-law violations from the previous administration
- Down with the Iran nuclear deal (hope I bump into you on the North Shore someday so I can ask you about that)
Now that I have proved my ability to stay apprised of current events, there are three questions that require your attention:
-You may not wear clothing or display any support for any candidate or ballot measure when you vote at the polls
-The popular vote is cast, but does not determine the outcome of the race
-Your state of residence contains an electorate (group of incumbent representatives) who is required to vote for the candidate their party has nominated
Do the research and tell me how your vote will count. Will it?
Do you live in a democracy?
We do not have a direct election.
You live in a republic, not even a representative democracy. . .
and you are free to do as they tell you.
State law 6909:
The electors, when convened, if both candidates are alive, shall vote by ballot for that person for President and that person for Vice President of the United States, who are, respectively, the candidates of the political party which they represent, one of whom, at least, is not an inhabitant of this state.
