    It is a fair question, but I think a big difference is that polygamy is a conscious action whereas homesexuality is a born trait

    14th doesn't trump 1st, it upholds it.  14th amendment is not what you are complaining about

    Has anyone proposed a law on an outright ban of the confederate flag?  Is there a law banning the use of a Confederate flag on cakes?
    We were talking about the 1st amendment right?

    I took the www.isidewith.com survey and I agreed with Bernie Sanders on 95% of the issues (although there were nuanced differences in many of the questions where we had similar responses)
    But here is the thing with Bernie Sanders that I need to know more about.  I like and agree with a lot of his ideas.  Things like investment in infrastructure and tuition free college are great ideas.  I am not 100% sold on single payer healthcare, but am for a public option.  But Sanders wants Medicare for all single payer system.
    But I have the same question I have for Rand Paul's tax policy.  How do we pay for all this?  That is likely at least a trillion dollars in new or expanded programs.  Where does the money come from?
    I am all for raising taxes on the wealthy and closing corporate loopholes, but I view it more as a deficit reducing measure moreso than a vehicle for more or expanding costly programs.
    I want to support Bernie Sanders, but I am interested to see more of how his platform mechanisms work and if reasonably raising taxes on wealthy and closing corporate loopholes would generate enough revenue to cover these programs without exploding the deficit.
    On its face he has great ideas, but the devil will be in the details.

    Yes the confederate flag is free speech.  Is there any laws being proposed to outright ban the confederate flag?

    He may very well never come here.  But if he does make it to the end of his contract and we don't go 100% all-in to get him here and at least give him something to think about I will rage and burn TWC Arena to the ground

    My point is this whole thing is symbolic.  Don't get me wrong.  Government building should never have had that flag flying over it.
    But this other stuff.  Does it really do anything besides empty symbolism?

    This is all well and good but does this really, truly do anything to help race relations in the US?

    Just drew a huge crowd of 10,000 in Wisconsin

    Is still behind in Iowa but "surging" up in the polls
    http://www.radioiowa.com/2015/07/02/clinton-52-percent-surging-sanders-33-percent-in-latest-poll-in-iowa/
    A lot of people (including me) wrote this guy off pretty early, but it seems his message might be resonating with Democrats at least.
    I feel like Hillary is living off of name recognition, could another bold voice sneak up on her again and ruin her ordainment?
    Maybe I will get that steak from Pstall after all.
