That doesn't help my small engines at all. Riding mower, push mower, 2 trimmers, leaf blower, and chainsaw. For the past few years I've been able to find non-ethanol gasoline to use in them. I'm sure that's going to get harder to find.

And don't even start about battery powered yard equipment, not when my yard is bigger than a battery can handle.

The Constitution goes even further. The state legislatures could choose the electors and not even let the people vote on them. The Supreme Court has already ruled that no one has a Constitutional right to vote for President.

Any time you read the word "state" think "country", because that's exactly what the states are, semi-independent countries bound together with a central federal government. The Constitution was written to limit the power of the central government and actually left most power with the states and people. Kinda turned upside down now, isn't it? See our point?

I'm not questioning his being right. What I'm questioning is his wisdom, or lack thereof. A person can be really, really smart and still not be wise. I suspect he's so focused on his line of work that he can't see the bigger picture.

What he is advocating will result in nothing less than civil war, and that's just foolishness.

I get all the fake news I can stand from MSNBC, CNN, CNBC, FoxNews, NYT, Washington Post, etc. etc. etc.

I believe the corporate news people are really pushing the "fake news" stories to try to discredit and/or censor legitimate news sources that they don't agree with. Just stop it already. Americans are smarter than they think, but if a few are so stupid they can't tell real news from fake news, I'd rather they not vote anyway.

I wonder if this crap is revenge for some people calling Democrat voters "low information voters".
