Arizona does not know how to treat people. I will never vacation there until this gets resolved -pro-immigrant.

They had better strike down Arizona's anti-immigration law. I will not vacation there until they do.

GOP Con judges are having an orgasm over Obamacare case. Finally another chance to try & deny Obama a 2nd term But it will not work with voters who can think crititcally & use logic which eliminates Fox GOP fans - loyal followers- ditto heads

Both alternatives as written contain truth. The law does indeed violate the 1st, 4th, and 14th Amendments. But so what, when you're dealing with this Court's right-wing majority? My prediction is we'll see another of those 5-4 decisions upholding it.

@dianhow,

"But it will not work with voters who can think crititcally & use logic"

True--so that's 15% to 20% of American voters we don't have to worry about. :-/

The Problem of the Establishment

One thing that both parties have in common in this primary season is the fact that there's a sharp divide between "We, the People" populism, and the rich and powerful Washington establishment.

On the Republican side, Donald Trump is leading the race by running on a populist platform based on the fact that he's not beholden to the billionaires or lobbyists, and that he's never been part of the political establishment.
