More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted. Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010.

You cannot claim to be for greater freedoms, while voting AGAINST gay rights, abortion rights, or legalized marijuana.

Scalia was just a common corporate shill who bent the law to serve his corporate backers. Even the trip he got caught dying on…. was a gift from a litigant in his court.

You may kiss your view of democracy goodbye, and say hello to a better quality of life.

Obama fudged the numbers so that persons caught crossing the border were classified as deportees. BP officers are told to stand down. They sued Obama to be able to do their jobs.

Prof. Hasen wrote the piece in order to inform us that he himself happens to dislike the political implications of Justice Scalia’s work on the bench. Which tells you more about Prof. Hasen than about the late Justice.

We don’t need another Scalia. I can’t believe the Republicans are openly planning to delay confirming any nomination by Obama. What if they lose the presidential election. Who do they trust the most to pick a Justice, President Obama or Hilary.
