Why I Groan Sometimes

You can't have non-partisan elections because blacks need to know who the Democrats are so they can vote for them.

No Kidding.

The city of Kinston N.C. voted to do away with party affiliations in local elections, but the Federal Government decided that they can't do that.

I can think of several things wrong with this.

1) The Constitution does not recognize political parties and they are a pragmatic rather than legal structure that is outside the Constitution. I can't say that they are unconstitutional, but rather they are NON-constitutional. So what gives the government the need or right to enforce their existence?

2) Why does the Justice Department equate one party with one race? This is blatant racism and blatant partisanship.

3) As long as people are not denied the right to vote, what does it matter if a local jurisdiction wants to recognize parties or not?

4) And of course we need to look at the previous decisions by the unelected bureaucrat that made this decision. Sad to think that such people have any authority whatsoever.

This is silly. What, they can't inform themselves as to the position of each candidate. A lazy electorate indeed.
Conservatives should just join the Democratic party to get the Black vote.

But then again the Red Neck vote might go to the Liberals!

The Constitution---does it exist anymore---the states were meant to supersede the Federal government---not any more...
We lost original intent slowly....

My mother used to say that if a voter cannot name the candidates in a major election, that voter shouldn't be allowed to cast a ballot.

Harsh? Yes.

But it would prevent all this crap about voting for the Party instead of the person running for office. Sort of, anyway.

Oh Tim, if libs aren't using the race card, then they blame Bush, can you stop both practices and actually consider that what your side is doing is wrong?!?

Tim: No, no, no...you got it all wrong. Democrats should join the Republican Party. Only then the elitist "High-brow" vote would go to conservatives.

Can't have that.

It's also paternalistic and condescending. This automatically assumes blacks cannot make a decision based on anything other than what they have been taught by the left.

For decades, I've been trying to figure out how the Democrats, who brought us the KKK and who voted AGAINST the Civil Rights Act while the Republicans voted it in, managed to con the black vote over to their side to begin with, then continue to hold the vote even though they haven't done a durn thing for blacks except talk a lot and blame the Republicans for all ills.

I mean, I understand their desperation, without the black vote things would be pretty bleak for the political left. Now they want to make it as easy as possible for black voters to identify the Democrat?

The U.S. Justice Department is no longer interested in 'justice'. It is interested in furthering the goals of Obama and the loony Left.

The Constitution no longer is applied.

A good blog. I myself am sick of the two-party system.

For literally decades, the Republican Party was the party of blacks. Check the history of the GOP and Dem.

I read on another blog a comment from someone that calls himself "Truth101 saying that
Rush Limbaugh is indeed an A$$hole. Case dismissed.

Well maybe he is and maybe he isn't, but Rush being an A$$hole doesn't excuse the left from using false comments to justify his being dropped from the purchase of the Rams.

It's funny how the Liberals always change the subject when they are backed into a corner.
The subject was about healthcare and Obama.
"Healthcare Reform" is an American political myth. Politicians since Harry Truman have tried to nationalize medical services by various means. It's the same mythology: Too expensive and Americans have some unknown right to these services. Before Obama there was GWB hustling the Medicare prescription drug expansion, and Hillarycare. If anything defeats this monster this time, it will be someone getting a too short stick - Doctores, Pharma, insurance concerns...in the meantime America's other moderate party is waiting for the Dems to continue crashing so they can help keep the President from "failing" while telling middle America they saved their butts from Obamacare. Sorry to break to all you angry folks depending on the GOP, but the real "threat", the real bamboozling will eventually emerge with Grassley, Issakson, and the rest of the CINOs elected as Republicans negotiating for a Senate compromise. Those who resist will suddenly understand, we are all Sarah Palins.
And another thing, I think that Republicans who negotiate across the aisle with socialists should be thrown out of office. This bill should be voted down in whole. Also, the funding and appointment of the treatment decisions panel in the previous stimulus bill needs to be revoked and/or taken to the Supreme Court.Why are these criminals still in office? They are trying to install Socialism in our Country. The Guy in the Oval office is trying to force Socialism on us..
Saying the public now senses that Øbama has been less than straightforward with them, is an understatement. This clown lies through his teeth. He has broken every single campaign promise he ever made. The real kicker is when he promised there would be 5 days to discuss every Bill put before Congress, then he rammed through a thousand-something-page stimulus Bill and gave Congress less than 24 hours to read it and vote on it. Then the crook-clown Øbama takes a liesurely 4-day weekend to go on another vacation to Chi-town and signs the Bill on a Tuesday? Then to add insult to injury, his so-called stimulus Bill that cost nearly $800 billion and if we passed it RIGHT NOW unemployment would not go above 8 percent? Hello? Would you buy a used car from this man?
That's it in a nutshell. The public does not believe that BO has leveled with them. Or to put it another way he's a liar.
