Dude what are you taking about @6. It's perfectly acceptable to take issue with a headline that belittles one candidate and validates the other. The article may be fair but the headline doesn't treat them as equals.

Pretty sure he says "Doesn't seem very necessary."

Yeah this is pretty lame. That guys is pretty clearly trying to get to the sidewalk and is pretty much there when the cop grabs him and brings him back in to the street.

@2 Yeah you are right. This is just like Benghazi. Can't believe I never thought about that before. Get real man.

Can Cruz technically run. I thought he was born in Canada. Wouldn't that disqualify him or has this been debunked?

Okay interesting. I appreciate all your feedback. Just to be clear I'm not trying to be a troll. I thought I was cultivating a nice debate about something I'm a little fuzzy on. A couple things that strike me though because I've been reading the full text of the intiative on and off today. Found here by the way...

@16 I was reading (f) from section 4 as one big run on sentence. I didn't realize each (i) (ii) was a different exception

That being said there is absolutely no reason to use the R word. It just makes your argument look childish. I understand this is a hot topic but lets not resort to name calling (I know I know I'm living in a fantasy world)
