    Restore Moderation? Get Rid of the Electoral College

    True, I don't see an amendment being passed. However, I believe there are ways (you just highlighted the main one) to circumvent it.

    Restore Moderation? Get Rid of the Electoral College

    It wouldn't cease to exist. It would have to actually adapt to survive (and it would). Think about it, making the Republican party actually have to change its platform to be more popular among more Americans, what a concept! Both political parties, competing for votes from the general public...

    Is the best path towards justice to have the police kill people in our streets?

    Police shouldn't be acting as police, judges, and executioners. Also, we have a bill of rights that is supposed to protect citizens from these types of crimes. We should focus less on the 2nd amendment and more on amendments 4-8.

    Restore Moderation? Get Rid of the Electoral College

    I think most of us want moderation back into our political world. However, the Electoral College doesn’t encourage moderation. It favors increasingly rural and homogeneous states. It actually favors minority party rule, which is destroying this country as the population becomes increasingly...

    falling in love with the world’s worst dictators, bowing to Putin, torturing children on the border, alienating our allies, ignoring climate change, plunging us into debt, stoking the fires of racism, coarsening our political rhetoric, and lying about covid? Did I miss anything? So much winning!

    i think him showing massive amounts of debt leaves him open to criticism/scrutiny. Especially when we know he receives massive influxes of Russian cash. Is that why his foreign policy always favors the Russians? Because they bail him out financially?

    So true. Why the hell wasnt Trump imprisoned years ago? As a country, we waste so many resources imprisioning people for carrying weed yet let crooks like Trump off easily. Honestly, maybe this is the plan? Maybe trump is going to use this as leverage? @colton called this out years ago about...

    I get what you're saying. You're right, they didn't slap fines on them. But what they did do is make a law that took away their voting rights until those fines were paid off. Thus, enacting a poll tax. Which essentially defeats the entire point of the ballot initiative that was passed. Article...

    because felons recently were given their voting rights back and republicans then engaged in taking them away with poll taxes. Why didn’t Republican philanthropists help out? btw, this isn’t a Bloomberg operation. Lebron james and others kicked in too. Why didn’t any republicans help out? Why...

    It seems to me that if we want people to become productive members of society, we should do all in our power to help them. Preventing former felons from obtaining welfare, SNAP, food stamps, voting, and slapping fines onto them, seems counterproductive to me. Why pile on? We’re not setting them...

    A ballot initiative passed in 2018 gave these former felons the right to vote. The Republican legislature with its Republican Governor then tacked fines onto these people, preventing them from voting.

    Why should former felons be left with fees that prevent them from voting? The ballot bill that was passed made no such requirement. Why should felons who have paid their debt to society in prison time be left with financial debts which prevent them from voting? Why would it be a crime for...

    very good post. But if the cops did that, they’d receive backlash. Those white and affluent drug dealers would lawyer up and fight. It’s a lot easier to just bust some black or brown person for carrying some weed. They won’t resist. They’ll take the first plea bargain offered. it’s a win win...
