This government has always been about checks and balances. Install checks and balances and we do not have to worry about a president maliciously using it against the innocent. Congress is just too damn lazy and too partisan too set down and think up a smart plan for drone use in the States.

Perhaps the (de-)evolution of the Tea Party is a microcosm of the principle that pure capitalism by itself is an unmarketable concept to a majority, or even plurality, of the population. That you need social conservatism to get the ignorant to vote against their short-term interests.

looks like this guy figured a way the Republicans can come back to power

Quote:
Patterson is hoping his penchant for packing heat can bolster him in the crowded, four-way Republican primary for Texas lieutenant governor. He's one of three top candidates trying to prove he's more conservative than incumbent David Dewhurst, even suggesting in a slightly joking manner that rather than Texas seceding, the U.S. would be better off if four liberal states -- California, New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut -- were kicked out of the union.

Canada will take the Northeastern States. California, yeesh, that train wreck is on its own.

The Tea Party isn't minority friendly and that may backfire on them if it hasn't yet.

California can annex to Mexico.

This is pretty funny

http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slate...src=burger_bar

Quote:
During a Monday rally for Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli, Rand Paul took to the stage and dropped some 1990s movie knowledge, using the plot of Gattaca to paint a bleak future where a combination of abortion and scientific breakthroughs lead to the practice of eugenics.

One problem (other than the obvious issue that he doesn't seem to have mentioned how awesome that movie is!): The Kentucky senator appears to have lifted his description almost verbatim from the movie's Wikipedia page. MNSBC's Rachel Maddow flagged the apparent plagiarism last night. Here are the relevant passages:

1) Rand Paul: “In the movie Gattaca––in the not-too-distant future, eugenics is common. And DNA plays a primary role in determining your social class.”
Wikipedia
: “In the not-too-distant future, liberal eugenics is common and DNA plays the primary role in determining social class.”
*** *** **
2) Rand Paul: “Due to frequent screenings, Vincent faces genetic discrimination and prejudice. The only way to achieve his dream of being an astronaut is he has to become what’s called a ‘borrowed ladder.’”
Wikipedia: “Due to frequent screening, Vincent faces genetic discrimination and prejudice. The only way he can achieve his dream of becoming an astronaut is to become a ‘borrowed ladder.’”
*** *** ***
3) Rand Paul: "He assumes the identity of a Jerome Marrow, a world-class swimming star whose genetic profile is said to be 'second to none,' but he's been paralyzed in a car accident..."
Wikipedia: "He assumes the identity of Jerome Eugene Marrow, a former swimming star with a genetic profile 'second to none,' who had been injured in a car accident..."
*** *** ***
4) Rand Paul: "Jerome 'buys' his identity, uses his DNA—his blood, his hair, his tissue, his urine—to pass the screening."
Wikipedia: "Vincent 'buys' Jerome's identity and uses his 'valid' DNA in blood, hair, tissue, and urine samples to pass screening."

Hmmm, didn't the Texas politicians cry that if Obama won a second term, that they were going to file to have Texas de-unionized? So, I guess that didn't work, huh? So, why are so many people against the New England states? And not all of California is bad, just the LA part.

There's no provision in the Constitution for a State leaving, or being kicked out of, the Union.

Once you're in, you're in.

I love the New England states, just that the taxes are too damn high. I would move up there in a second if I could take my "no state income tax" with me.
