Interesting, I thought that the adults back in the room meant no more drama. Democrats control all levers of power, they can't blame the GOP for anything. They should find a compromise and stop with the extremism. As for the debt ceiling being idiotic, I think its great we have it, so we hold our p...

Re: Voter ID Law Blocked in North Carolina

Nobody does. The problem comes with arbitrary rules set up by one side to limit who can vote, where, and when. They then flip it around and start saying "liberals" don't want ID to vote. Which is a lie. Everybody wants secure elections. One side wants to be the only ones to get elected. D...
