    People with skin in the game should get more say.
    That's a different issue than elected office LOL. Not every vote on every issue is the same.

    Oh you mean it's giving power to the areas that are most densely populated? With actual people? What a horrible idea... And that's not what the Electoral College was implemented for.

    no one will ever overturn Roe vs Wade. not unless this country is going to be overrun by the likes of Pat Robertson, which will never happen. Democrats bring up Roe Vs Wage with every Republican being nominated to any civil post. Its fear mongering by the democrats.

    This isn't true.

    It's not about overturning it, it's about giving the power back to the states to decide it, which would be a disaster.

    And also the limitations placed upon it, another concern.

    Just because you don't understand or believe the threat doesn't mean it isn't real. And frankly, it's not your concern. I'm more concerned about women's Reproductive Rights. You're clearly not.

    you don't know what my concerns are. Your paranoia doesn't bother me. I voiced my opinion on Roe vs Wade.

    Can’t overfund* the military. They’re the biggest push behind most technology and innovation. I’m fine with taking that private, too.

    And isn’t pbs publically funded? That’s what their commercials say. (But again - fear)
