    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    I don't think it matters who is on the ballot in RI. They're going to vote for whoever is the Democrat. RI hasn't gone for a Republican since Eisenhower.

    If they really were serious about making sure politicians don't create laws for personal gain ( I couldn't even type that with a straight face ) they'd make it across the board. Not only for Republican presidential candidates, but Senate, House, and local government, right on down to Town Councils.

    It's already been ruled that constitutionally, you can't add additional requirements to run for state office - and that would apply also to federal.
    “Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.".Daniel Webster

    Another way Democrats found to waste more taxpayer money.

    They should have killed two birds with one stone...They should have also required a candidate to submit a certified birth certificate as well...

    AZ tried that, but to make it worthwhile one must add in a lot of crap, and the R governor at the time said she wouldn't sign such a thing. To a certain degree, I agreed with her concept. However, I'm pretty sure her objections could have been overcome.

    The difference, of course, is that place of birth actually is in the Constitution for president:
