It’s only 3 to 1 in favor. Seems pretty close to me.

I don’t think this is going to help St. Louis win the 2012 Democrat convention.

“only 3 to 1 in favor. Seems pretty close…”

And only half the precincts have reported; so this signifies nothing. In fact the final ratio may only be a paltry 2.9 to 1–which would obviously signify a mandate to Obama and his Eliteniks to press their agenda harder than ever.

Hmmmm… two cities hate the measure and the rest of the state think it is a good idea… So, of course, it will be challenged as unconstitutional…

Well, butter my butt and call me “Biscuit!” The folks in Mizzou-rah came through in force. How dare they reject the awesome benefits bestowed upon them by O’Obama the All-Knowing and All-Merciful. Obviously, the “yes” votes on Prop C were from a fringe group of astroturfers, racists, nazis, and teabaggers. Although, shore do seem to be a lot of them fringes down in the Show Me State!

Let the MSM sneering begin! I imagine Olberman will be foaming at the mouth.

Go, Missouri! 71%! Congratulations!

How long til impeachment?

On those numbers, you’ll have the votes in the House for sure, and pretty close in the Senate!

But then, in a Westminster system

such a vote would indicate no confidence in the prime minister and if they had any self-respect they would resign

Sounds good to me. Get results like this in say 10 more states and Obama morally has lost his mandate to govern or to remain as President

Yo, what is this with all this government by the people, for the people and of the people in MO? It’s like there was a Constitution and States or something!

Love the headline on Drudge this morning:

Looking good for November in Missouri. Primary votes for Blunt exceeded those for Carnahan by 147,000 in St. Louis County.

Barney…

“…two cities hate the measure…”

Not completerly. No votes in neither city reached 60%:

KC:
Yes 43.5%
No 56.5%

St. L:
Yes 41.1%
No 58.9%

In some of the counties, the yes vote was 81 to 85 percent!

WTF, I live in Charlotte and, despite the efforts of our business elite and politicians, strongly hope that our fair burg does not get the convention either (I would not want the Republican one either. I see, frankly, too little benefit to the vast majority of the populace.). I see no benefit in it (other than the city boosters getting to say “See, we’re a World Class City”)and much grief.

“MO ballot measure wins, impotently attempting to reject the massive subsidies that will flow from coastal states to MO. Smart folk.”

As a resident of one of those coastal states, thank you, Missouri. It sucks being the endless target of expropriation to massively subsidize everybody.

Looks like that 147,000 margin was more like the statewide margin than the St. Louis County one, but still, Carnahan will have a tough battle in November.

I understand the moral victory here, but what practical effect can this have? I don’t see how a state law can immunize (!) a person from federally imposed sanctions.

We’ll see, won’t we? Because if Obama really wants to push this thing, he basically massacres the Democratic Party in this state and probably lots of other places as well.

Scoreboard? Who cares. A judge might nullify it.

Federal judge overturns Gay Marriage ban that was approved by California voters in 2008.

Katherine

What will come of these deeply unpopular laws is a general disregard for the rule of law, and nullification in practice and perhaps refusal of civil authorities to participate and of juries to convict on violations. This is the kind of damage we’re heading for, not civil war but civil dissolution.

I mean if a state can pass this, why couldn’t a state pass:

1.330. 1. No law or rule shall permit, directly or indirectly, any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in any abortion or other procedure that leads to the death of the embryo of fetus.
2. No person or employer or health care provider may pay directly for abortion services and shall not be required by law or rule to pay penalties or fines for refusing to provide abortion services. A health care provider may not accept direct or indirect payment for abortion services and shall be personally and severally liable to pay penalties or fines or serve terms of incarceration or suffer any other penalty including life without parole or death for accepting direct or indirect payment from a person or employer for abortion services.

Proposition 8 Judge throws out California’s gay marriage ban

You’ve already got dissolution. As for war: the question you need to ask yourself is: would the US Marines fire on the Missouri National Guard? or the state police?
