    What are we gonna do? Take them to court? First we have to find the one magical individual in the country who actually has "standing" to do so. State governments, individual voters, electors, candidates, none of them seem to have "standing". So who does?

    That type of rhetoric terrifies men like Krugman. "Leave my patrons alone!"
    Why did he write it? Because he's an unprincipled hack, that's why. As is the case with all leftists, his opinion on every topic depends solely and completely on who is presenting it.

    Krugman doesnít write his columns. Itís one of his graduate students or assistants, someone who comes and goes often. This is why the opinions are inconsistent and constantly contradictory.

    Writing a newspaper column is beneath him.

    CTH has written an excellent article on what exactly Trump is up against: There are Trillions at Stake - The Big Club and UniParty Opposition to President - The Last RefugeThe Last Refuge

    This one I already posted, doing it again because it's an useful supplement to the article above: DC's Corrupted Legislative Process and Why The Dem/Rep UniParty Dismisses Your Opinion of It... - The Last RefugeThe Last Refuge

    Can anyone help us understand why the possession of "body vest armor" in the State of New York should be either a misdemeanor or a felony?

    We can see that even here, there are a people that believe he is a crusader against moneyed interests. Nyckid somehow did not notice that Krugman and Wall Street supported the same presidential candidate, indicated by op-eds and public campaign finance records respectively. I suppose it is possible that they don’t “like” each other, though, despite being political allies. Nyckid makes his bed in the sordid town, so maybe he has inside information on this.

    There’s something surprising about the fact that even a person who takes your outlook towards the ostensible superiority of “coastal elites” is so chary to accept that a Yale Man could be intellectually careless…

    We're no better than China or Russia.

    Corrupt as can be.

    All government seats are questionable.

    We have no idea what is legitimate.

    Here's a snip from the above: "Any person currently in possession of a "body vest", as such term 13 is defined in subdivision two of section 270.20 of the penal law, shall have 15 days from the effective date of this act to dispose of such body vest at any local or state law enforcement agency."

    Replace 'body vest' with firearm and you are seeing the future.

    First we have to find the one magical individual in the country who actually has "standing" to do so. State governments, individual voters, electors, candidates, none of them seem to have "standing". So who does?
    To whom does the Constitution give explicit responsibility for electing the president?

    Article II Section 1 Clause 2

    Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.
    I've emphasized who has standing to file suit in regards to the presidential election.
