    Wait a minute. Wasn't ole Hillary that wanted to abolish the Electoral College following the 2000 elections, effectively eliminating the interior states as a factor in determining the outcome of national elections?

    All I've heard are sound bites about "closing the border," "comprehensive reform of this or that," "Get the troops out," "Leave the troops in."

    The good ship USA is heading for some choppy waters and strong currents. Our current captain is having the deck hands fire all cannons at the wind, trying to convince it to slow down. The sails are rotten, the crew is ill-trained and surly, the bilge pumps are barely keepin up with the leaks, and the ship's doctor refuses to see anyone who will not sign their pay over to him.
