Vermont Wrestles With Popular Vote Vs. Electoral College Prez Selection

Party Jumping, Sham Voting in Ohio

As we start scraping into Tuesday, March 4th, it’s not difficult to hear the calls of right-wing radio openly advocating that Republicans getting themselves involved in some party hopping, or, specifically, voting in the Democratic Primary. For Obama. (Update note: … Continue reading
