Link is "". Try changing it to the normal "" link? Probably a bug.

Hm, I can't reproduce. I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, FIrefox 50.1.0. What distro/version of Linux?

Makes sense. The Backfire Effect at work: when people's beliefs are challenged, they get stronger, as a psychological self-defense mechanism.

    Trump’s victory, which defied the long-held conventional wisdom about the prospects of black-hearted candidates, has been described as a watershed moment for the nation’s millions of black-hearted Americans whose overwhelming support buoyed his run for the presidency. Encouraged by the possibility of one of their own occupying the highest seat of power in the nation, black-hearted Americans reportedly turned out in record numbers in all 50 states, propelling Trump to a historic victory.

I thought The Onion was satire?

mk I haven't made any changes recently. Do you have any idea what could've broke it? I can try to look into it this weekend, if you don't.

    only some people should get to elect our leaders

The technical term for that form of government is "Tyranny".

    If Hillary Clinton wins the U.S. Presidential election, it will be the first time in history that two U.S .Presidents have slept with each other!

That we know of.

I can respect someone who honestly doesn't believe it will work. But I think they're wrong. Conservatives regularly make the argument "it just won't work in the US, we're too big" (despite countries like Sweden having vast swathes of frozen wasteland). But you know what? Colorado is about the size of any given European country, and with a strong tech economy. I want to see what happens. Worst case scenario, we can repeal it if it explodes, and the only thing lost is some spending money from a few well-to-do middle class people like myself who can spare it.

But, practicality notwithstanding, as a Christian, I'll almost always vote for social things. I believe Jesus' #1 physical ministry was to the poor. I don't have to tell you, there are countless verses in both the Old and New Testaments commanding helping the poor. And some pretty dire consequences for not doing it in Matthew 25.

When I lived in Texas, most of the Conservative Christians I knew used the argument, "It's not the government's job, it's the church's job." You know what? The church isn't doing its job. And at the end of the day, I don't care who does it, as long as it gets done.

Historical trivia: on July 30, 1974, The Washington Post published, with Dr. Seuss' permission, replacing Marvin K. Mooney with Richard M. Nixon, the entire poem. Ten days later Nixon resigned.
