I am still wondering how Wisconsin can hold primaries and recalls at the same time. I would think that the recalls would be separated from other elections in that the others would be to replace the recalled politicians. Trying to do both things at one time seems purely stupid to me. I guess union controlled people must have made that rule up.

If this is your best attempt to explain how Wisconsin does that little trick maybe you better study their system enough to let me know just how it works. I am really serious in wondering about it.

I bet that the woman who suggested something newer than the US Constitution as a model to the Egyptians sure wouldn't use that one as an example.

That form specifically requires a candidate to state that their candidacy is ‘representing’ the political party for which the primary is to take place. This statement must be made under oath,”
so then any candidate can register as a democrat, and run in the democrat primary as long as they follow the rules? heaven forbid that should happen. oh wait the democrats do the exact same thing to the republicans. it called politics, and there is NOTHING illegal about it.

in fact due to a quirk in the local laws in pennsylvania my uncle was able to get on both the democrat and republican primary ballots in a local election. there was nothing illegal about it according to the election board. by the way he won on BOTH ballots.

Fodder, always has been, no one in America has less respect for the Constitution than conservatives.

As far as "personal liberty" and "freedom" is concerned, it was 5 conservatives on the Supreme Court who now allow a strip search anytime you are arrested for anything (a nun at an anti war rally, for example), you think any conservatives on this forum were bothered by the ruling? Of course not. They have slavish devotion to authority, and not to the principles and laws in the Constitution.

LOL. So basically both Democrats and Republicans are sleezy? Glad I vote for candidates and not the party. Anyone who votes for the party is an idiot.

That's not accurate.

Well that of course isn't true. The actual ruling allows for strip searches when you enter jail, a perfectly reasonable position. But then again, judging by the posts in this forum, the truth isn't terribly important to the left. They are truly, the ends justify the means types.

O'danny isn't exactly unbiased. The republicans could ban turd-sandwiches and he'd eat one up as fast as he could. Just like many of the raving far righties we have around here.

Honestly, I frankly wonder how some of the posters around here can function. I suspect many are in some sort of assisted living community where they scream political screed at the quirrels in the park.
