Well you repeating what you think I should do isn't particularly productive. But here we are. "Laws still on the books" is totally irrelevant. It has no force or effect. Hmm. Your posts are kind of like that. I see what you wrote. But it has no force or effect. It's ineffectual! Yes, we e...

Hate speech is not free speech. The first amendment disagrees hence why the Nazi party or any other far right party hasn't been outlawed. Based on your standard if Im on the Board of Elections and you run for office and I think your views on democracy and how procedure should be thrown out because ...

Law's still on the books, Well that's another thing that is shit about US law and particularly state law , is that law "on the books" which has been ruled invalid by a court, gone through all appeals, and is completely unenforceable ... stays on the books because sullen legislatures can't...

Got some sauce on this, because states can and have done this before. Some asshole state might have tried it, doesn't mean they're still allowed to now.

You sure as Hell can if it threatens the very existence and lives of this country and the people who live in it, which is what the American Nazi Party essentially is No you cannot .

No you cannot. Convicted felons after their sentence is up can run in many states. The mayor of Bridgeport, CT is a convicted felon.

And they're wrong, and so are you. Other than the fact the party is the definition of standing against all the values America allegedly champions, and most of us would be killed, you wouldn't stand for it, and neither would I, ergo they should be banned.

Heart attacks and cancer are nature too, should we stop having doctors? To be fair, unlike heart attacks and cancer, snakes are an essential part of their local ecosystems (provided they aren’t invasive) since they help keep rodent and other pest populations under control. I'd rather have mice than...

What do you mean so? The only way to ban political parties would be via constitutional amendment as there is no other legal way to do without running afoul of the first amendment.

Because dead, desiccated trees and foliage provide excellent kindling for wildfires when left unmanaged. We actually clear them off the ranch for that reason, as well as to prevent snakes from finding too cozy a home in places where we would prefer not to have snakes. Thats nature. Snakes were ther...

One could argue letting massive corporations dump their money onto politicians is a form of free speech, and yet a lot of people want money out of politics.


Isn't there a court case that said just that?

That's a shame. Its freedom of speech. There is no legal way you could abolish parties with violating the first amendment. You can make elections non partisan. Some judicial elections and municipal elections do that. For example all Chicago city elections are non partisan by law. The Nebraska Senat...

I forgot for a moment that cabinet positions aren't usually just for a couple months. It's going to take some getting used to again with a cabinet that doesn't have a higher turnover rate than a temp agency.
