    You forgot to mention how the neighbors keep trying to apply their house rules to your home. Many of the decisions for how to run your home have to get full agreement from everyone in the neighborhood.

    I predict a very tame convention compared to the Democratic one. At least inside. If San Jose is any indication, there will be plenty of violence from the side that claims to be the most tolerant.

    > After two years …

    Wheels of justice take a little longer when you stonewall, stonewall, stonewall and command all your henchmen to do the same. Incidentally, the Watergate scandal took well over two years too. Perhaps there was nothing there either?

    Huh. I never put an asterisk next to our first black president, first potential woman or Jewish presidents. Who’s doing that? Who feels it’s necessary? Hell, which party must segregate it’s constituency into labels at all?

    You’re the type of constituent bureaucracies love! TSA, NPS, and other alphabet-soup federal agencies have figured out how to fool you every time.

    • Close down an open-air national park
    • Spend millions on software a 5th grader could build in 3 hours.
    • Spend billions on machines that you’re not allowed to use.
    • Do this instead of hiring more worker
    • Do these things instead of focusing on actual security (90% of their own audits FAIL).
    • Cry “we don’t have enough money!” and emphasize this by making sure the lines are slower & longer.
    • Rinse & repeat.

    It’s a lovely lie. Using Bush’s policies the number of “removals” (formal deportations) have increased. But the number of “returns” (less harsh, basically turn around at the gate) has decreased significantly. Add to that the overall increase in crossings due to public statements made by the president.

    Or the Democrat line when it comes to saying who can use what bathroom, what the definition of marriage is, what the drinking age should be, how to teach their children in schools, what the speed limit should be, whether their citizens should have to wear a seat belt, what kind of weapons they can own…

    [The President] should consider following the practice of a majority of his predecessors and not — and not — name a nominee until after the November election is completed.

    The Senate, too, Mr. President must consider how it would respond to a Supreme Court vacancy that would occur in the full throes of an election year. It is my view that if the President goes the way of Presidents [Millard] Fillmore and [Andrew] Johnson, and presses an election year nomination, the Senate Judiciary Committee should seriously consider not scheduling confirmation hearings on the nomination until after the political campaign season is over.

    I’ll start off by saying I’ve never lived in Iowa but I support the current system.
    The reason Iowa is first actually comes down to a new Iowa Democratic Party rule in 1972 that said they had to hold it 60 days before the convention for administrative purposes. It wasn’t a big deal because primaries weren’t really that important at the time – most candidates having been selected quietly. But that year McGovern took advantage of the new rule to campaign door-to-door. He overwhelmingly beat expectations which garnered some press. Four years later, an unknown Jimmy Carter took his down-home wholesome act to Iowa and blew away the other candidates. Suddenly Iowa was seen as important.
    The biggest negative of this kind of campaigning is it seems to last forever and, yes, it lowers the importance of later states.
    However, the arguments for are numerous. First, Iowans take their job extremely seriously. They’re more conservative than the average voter, yes, but that also speaks to how much they vet. The candidates are required to really define their platforms and answer questions that the media and the masses never get to ask. Iowa populace is pretty spread out so individuals get to speak one-on-one with the candidates. It also gives those candidates – like Sanders or Cruz – an opportunity to float to the top because it doesn’t cost a billion dollars in ads. It also helps remove the weak from the herd. Finally, because of how Iowa caucuses, the vote itself is a debate and discussion, not an anonymous pull of a lever.
