    Is there a rich people college scandal thread? Not seeing it.

    I'm pretty sure we both told each other we had matching votes. But what you do in the poll is your secret to tell.

    Never thought about that before. I really wonder if I would have voted HRC if I thought Trump winning was actually a possibility. I dont recall.....but I think it was write in, not 3rd party.

    I think in theory this is a good thing. It allows the voters to more transparently review options and have choices. Rather than the GOP/DEM political machines just deciding "who" will represent them. I think this was the DEMs fatal flaw with going with Clinton instead of Bernie. I think a pretty strong case could me made that Bernie would have beat Trump in 2016. Honestly I feel that if Bernie or Clinton had won we would still being having HUGE issues and I'd be just as unsettled. But at least they would have done it with finesse, tact, and respect!

    Personally, I could make an argument on both sides for or against voter ID. I think the issue around IDs should not be focused solely on elections. I think having an ID card is something that everyone in the country needs. It should be easy to get and free. They should find a way to weave it into public health and education IMO. (oh how liberal conservative paradox of me....) I didn't mean to go off topic. I more was pointing out the irony of using the same argument to contradict opposite things. Far right screams voter fraud, far left says "doesn't happen". Far left screams voter suppression, far right says "vote integrity". It all starts local. I wish more people were involved in their local political scene....making changes there - it's the long game, but it would yield the needed steps to get where I think the majority of the country wants to be. This Hot/Cold mentality is nuts. And whenever someone like me even tries to bring a middle of the road view point, we get shunned from both sides. As much as its fun to be labeled a bleeding heart and a cold hearted conservative within 5 min of each other......time to call it a night.

    So is this how this works? Someone points out a flaw in your logic. And instead of staying the course and discussing the true argument.....we make bold statements to try to bait me down a rabbit hole? Stop assuming that just because someone has a different view than you, that they are 180 degree from you. I'm smarter than I look.

    yup. "Meredith and his colleagues estimate that 0.3 to 0.6 percent of Michigan voters didn’t have photo IDs when they showed up to vote during the 2016 general election." https://journalistsresource.org/studies/politics/elections/voter-photo-id-law-research/ Keep in mind that was in a state that does NOT require an ID, simply asks if the voter has one. Would it not follow that this tiny population, if they were wanting to ensure they could vote, and was now required - would obtain an ID? State IDs in Michigan are free for those who need it. I believe one of the last proposals I saw on this, actually included a budget to subsidize the cost of said IDs for those in need. Take politics out of it, we need to as a society make sure everyone has EASY access to obtaining an ID. Without it, people in need of many programs are in eligible. Let alone, unable to secure employment or be identified easily if something was to happen and they were not around people who knew them.

    And there's no evidence people would vote for someone on the opposite party in an attempt to "help" their party.

    Since y'all love to quote stats that say "voting fraud is practically non-existent". Who has a stat for how many people who vote, don't have a photo ID? I like facts, not anecdotes.

    Do you not see the irony in this? You don't believe primaries should be fully open for any registered voter to be able to vote for the candidate they feel best represents the party they are affiliated, because "people are corrupt and will abuse it" but requiring someone to prove they are in fact who they are when casting a vote is "a form of voter suppression". This right here shows how both sides are so crooked that they talk out the side of their head to fit their narrative. And this is a large reason why there are so many of us voters that are fed up and don't like either of the candidates that either major party ends up putting up.

    Out of curiosity....what's your stance on requiring IDs to vote?

    I'd be happy even with them allowing Indep/NPA. Most states, they don't get to participate in primaries at all. But honestly.....is the false negative really a threat? Do you really think tons of Rep would be willing to give up their vote for their Rep. Primary choice to vote instead for a Dem? If so, couldn't they just register as the other party and do the same thing?

    I don't know much about her. At this point its like College Ball....as much as I try, the roster is just too large for me to really get into it. I need to wait and see how things shake out once they are entering the major leagues before I start placing my bets.

    And if he does that. I really hope his speech is NOT focused around her being female. I love me some Biden, and will be very surprised if I didn't end up voting for him. But one of the worst things he could do to turn me off.....is putting a woman in a position just because she is a woman. I don't want to be pacified.....I want to see a VP that truly compliments and challenges him. A ying & yang. She may very well be that, and I hope if he goes that direction he does her service in focusing on her merits, and not her gender.

    Would this be too simple? States move to "open primaries" and then people like me (registered Rep, but anti-Trump, left/right based on issue) could vote for a more moderate and well rounded candidate who then opposes Trump, and I will vote for them. More complicated - we need a computer algorithm to draw district lines. Note : the alternative is not that I would vote for Trump.....that will NEVER happen. But what would happen is that I end up going third party or "write-in".
