With a little help from the RNC, by not supporting the republican in the race.

The constitution already has a remedy--Impeachment. I would take these clowns more seriously if they would just do their constitutional duty instead of self-aggrandizing themselves with a "lawsuit". This action will be no more effective than an impeachment vote, but I guess we won't have to hear the whining about "it's a fight we can't win" tripe. If George Washington waited for a fight he could win, we'd still be speaking British.

Great article, well said. Supports my tongue-in-cheek axiom: Tee-ball is the root of all evil.
If there is any silver lining to this, perhaps the collapse of insurance coupled with the fecklessness of the government will allow a cash medical environment to flourish, where the prices of doctoring get back to earth where they belong and day to day healthcare actually becomes affordable. Then, groups of like minded people can pool their resources to help defend against the catastrophe. One can dream I guess. And don't bother whining if you don't have the cash. Anything worth having is worth paying for.

Reminds me of an adaptation of an old joke. Q: What is the difference between and liberal and a fascist? A: A fascist is a liberal that's serious.
I hear you, my own mother actually called me a racist while trying to defend border security. I realized at that point that if there was ever going to be any peace on our visits, politics was off limits. Of course, she loved politics, but I would gently remind her that as soon as it got personal it was over, and after a few more times she realized that she was unable to argue her position without trying to discredit the opposition. She never changed positions, but did quit bringing up politics at family gatherings.
The author was attempting to convince the reader that all 3 cases were equally BS, regardless of what your opinion of the victim was. Whether you like Baldwin or not, he has a right to his opinion just like anyone else. The author makes a valid point by trying to convince the reader that it is important to be consistent in the application of conservative principles, so that the liberals won't tear your arguments apart because of "hypocrisy", something they are very skilled at.
I completely understand why they want to take away our guns. I always believed this stuff to be an aberration, and not systemic. But between the act of denying Christmas cards, and the number of Park Service "americans" that were willing to carry out orders to provoke and annoy the most harmless of Americans, I have to believe that this government holds its subjects in contempt, and there is probably no limit to how low the bottom of the barrel will be when all is said and done. Nothing is accomplished by either of these acts except to demonstrate in the most petty way possible that the government has power over you. Taken to its natural conclusion, I am reminded of a video of an SS officer shooting a weak, unarmed, nearly naked prisoner in the head for his inability to march fast enough, while everyone else looks on, but not in horror because evidently it occurs pretty often.
