Re: Outcome shows need to have popular vote. The outcome only prompts the desire of those who didn't like it to want a popular vote. The republic gives all states influence in the vote for president by way of electoral so the tyranny of the majority does not leave those who own the remaining 70% of the land in this country without a voice.

Putnam has no qualifications or original vision. Most likely he'll be divisive, pushing laws that create winners and losers rather than serving everyone.

The rule isn't to have the most votes but have a majority. It is clearly set up that way.

From: If Donald Trump has the most votes entering the GOP convention (but not a majority), should he be awarded the nomination?

"No one else is giving up any rights with this latest executive order. No one is going to be harmed by it"? Here's just one violation of privacy and discrimination toward the violated woman:

"She went to the front desk after someone who looked like a "man" entered the women's locker room while she was changing.

"I wanted to know why there was a man in the women's locker room," she told CNN. "He looked like a man, and that's what stopped me in my tracks."

She said the front desk employee told her about Planet Fitness' "no-judgment" policy, which allows people to use changing room based on "their sincere, self-reported gender identity."

Unsatisfied, she said she called Planet Fitness' corporate headquarters and heard the same thing.

"That should be something they pointed out when I signed up," she said.

"If you have male parts you don't need to be in the women's locker room. I don't care what you are; I don't care if you're gay lesbian, transgender or transvestite. I am uncomfortable with you as a male in my locker room, in my restroom."

She returned to the gym Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday "to get the word out" to other women that they "let men in the women's locker room," she said.

"Every day I said 'just so you know, there's a man they allow in this locker room and they don't tell you that when you sign up,' " she said.

The next day, she found out that her membership had been canceled."

You should tell people what "public accommodations" means unless you are afraid to be honest. The majority supports nondiscrimination but doesn't support men in the women's bathrooms, locker rooms and showers.

The real crime is the switch from the superior design that was submitted with application. This is a real bait and switch. This building looks like a low end mall.

Your ad hominem, Paul Kazee, against Mr.Barney's good name makes you pretty much what you accuse him of. Mr. Barney's response to the letter where AIDS deaths had been injected as a red herring made clear that the relationship posed between how many people have died from AIDS and the passing a codification of the federal RFRA is a non-sequitur. It is enlightenment, not "stone age" to recognize cause and effect. I suppose, to be consistent, you would agree alcoholics, who are born that way, should drink as they wish, regardless of who gets hurt or killed; after all there is a far better case for them being born that way than there is for your assertion, which is quick to excuse the innocent deaths and homosexual deaths based on that. You might be quite sure you are really a bird and one day spread your arms a leap from a tall place and fly majestically into the ground. No matter how you frame your reasoning, urges, creation, you will be just as splattered. People who recognize this are far from ignorant, but pave the way through the 21st century.
