    Thatís rich. Tell me again what party has used the courts to shove their agenda down the throats of Americans.

    Your claim:

    ďRepublicans know that they canít win democratically...Ē

    So tell us, how many issues did liberals take to the courts because they couldnít win through the ballet box?

    Sorry Jimmy, but even a high school history student can name court cases that were used to pass measures that faced losses at the ballet box. Youíre the one making the claim that republicans canít win democratically. Not my fault you donít remember court cases where liberals did exactly that. Bypassed the democratic process because they couldnít win at the ballet box.

    Trick question. Both of them have.

    Though I would say the Democratic Party does do it more often.

    Both parties have no issue doing what it takes to win. Itís just pure irony that Jimmy attacks Republicans for trying to subvert the democratic process when many of the most important liberal victories, over the past 50 years, have been handed through forcing the issue through the courts when ballet box measures fail. Even better is changing up the senate and house rules and than complaining when your opponents start playing by your own rules.

    First off I didn't claim there was anything wrong with going through the courts, that's what courts are for. But you made the challenge that only liberals win through the courts, so it's up to you to prove it.

    She didn't say only.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    I never said that. Maybe you should try not making up something in order to make it easier to refute. The point is that democrats are more than willing to subvert democratic processes, in order to win. A thing you seem to believe to be something only republicans do.
