Same goes for Al gore he won the popular vote,we got stuck with the dumbest President ever in G Worst Bush.

What don't you understand:
'The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.'
That's the wording you are allowed to see now. The original document (located in the cellar without a light or stairs, in a locked filing cabinet with sign saying "Beware the Leopard") had an asterisk.

Here's the full Constitution's 4th amendment:

"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.*"

* Not valid in states where prohibited. Not valid in airport security areas. Not valid during no-knock warrants issued to the wrong address. Not valid in Arizona. Not valid during a routine traffic stop and the drug dogs trained to alert on command is probable cause. Not valid Driving while Black in a white neighborhood. Not valid within 20 miles of a Planned Parenthood office. Not valid if you are a CEO as there is no probable cause whatsoever. Not valid if you exercise any other amendment such as, but not limited to, freedom of assembly, freedom of speech, freedom of religion. Not valid to non-citizens even though Constitutional protections extend to them in US jurisdiction. Not valid to anyone declared an "enemy combatant." Not valid to those who petition their representative without a campaign contribution. Not valid to women, slaves, nor non-land holding white males. Not valid to any law enforcement officers as they are exempt from the law. Not valid in any state that has an vowel in its name.

Strict majority rules has been shown to be a bad way to go. Look up tyranny of the majority.

One way I could see fixing the winner takes all electoral college is to allow weighted voting on the President. Have x number of candidates on the ballot (for example, let's go with 5).

Your first choice would get 5 points, second choice gets 4 points, 3rd choice gets 3 points and so on. Whoever gets the most points in a state wins the state and their electoral votes.

Now this is a bad thing for those who are trying to buy their government - where do you spend your dollars now to ensure favorable legislation?

Much easier to choose between two.

And the funny thing might be whoever runs under a wildly crazy party might end up President as more people chose them as their 2nd or 3rd choice.

The food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is

Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to

"please do not feed the animals,"

because the animals may grow dependent and not learn how to take care of themselves.

Romney has a 24 point lead with veterans, according to Gallup.

Romney 58%
Obama 34 %

I seem to remember a poster made the comment that Obama was leading with veterans. Either that poster was lying or misinformed.

Gallup has publicly stated that Obama now has a higher chance of losing rather than winning.

By May, Gallup gave Jimmy Carter a lead over Reagan of 49 to 41, higher than Obama today.

Carter suffered a landslide defeat.

It looks like Obama will be the Jimmy Carter of 2012.

There's a third possibility: two different polls showed two different results.

Two weeks ago a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed that by 44 to 37, veterans and their families favored Obama over Romney.

So now another poll says something different. That hardly makes me lying OR misinformed, does it?

But rather than making predictions based on polls from 32 YEARS AGO(!), how about naming the states that will give Romney 270 electoral votes.

And in 1992 GHWB was riding an 80% approval rating. He seemed unstoppable. And again, we all know what happened to him.

What happened to both Carter and Bush was the same thing. The ECONOMY. And unless this current economy turns around a LOT, Mr Obama may suffer those same consequences. He will be fired.

He spent all his capital in his first two years not by growing the economy so jobs could be created, but rather by pushing through a health insurance plan the country did not want. Remember, it passed the House by only 5 votes. And 62 Democrats who voted for it were fired in 2010.

Everybody can claim this poll, that poll, but the American people will vote with their wallets, as they do every time.

Historically the military has always supported the GOP.

Polls will change for the coming months. What can't be disputed is that Obama is not doing that well for an incumbent.

Were you the one that mentioned the poll several weeks ago? I didn't remember who it was.

I know that's true. So when a poll of a Republican-leaning group shows that they're leaning toward the Democrat, that's a significant finding, isn't it?

But when a poll of a Republican-leaning group shows that they're leaning toward the Republican, it's hardly something to crow about.

And, yeah it was me that posted the Reuters poll. Questioning whether "a poster" was lying when Reuters/Ipsos had a poll result seems a little silly, doesn't it?

Many are now saying Romney can win. There is a good article by Thomas Beaumont of the Associated Press..." Warning signs for Obama on path to electotal map", posted 5/28/12.

There was another article I read that gave breakdowns on how Romney could win. They are slowly starting to happen. Looks like Wisconsin will go Romney, as will Florida, and so forth.

Another one by Tim Stanley of The Telegraph..."But in the last two weeks,things have chsnged. Obama's reelection is no longer guaranteed; some pollsters think it is unlikely. Day by day,the odds are improving that Romney will be the next President of the United States."

I also hear many people that voted for Obama in 2008 are now saying they won't vote for him again.

As far as the Hispanic vote going for Obama.. most of those states are for Obama anyhow, so it really doesn't matter.

Obama doesn't drwa the crowds like he did in 2008, he is met with protesters, he has become an aging rock star that no one wants to see anymore.
