        I have a feeling it will be about as profitable as teaching a pig to sing.

          If it is not that, can you explain why gerrymandering sometimes divides the electorate along racial or ethnic lines?

            Both sides do it to give them whatever political advantage they can get.

              So, are ethnic and racial boundaries, Party boundaries also?
              If so, who are the Party of white Christians?

                I'm colorblind. Both literally and figuratively.

                  I assume you understand that Democrats are citizens of the Republic too?

                    Absolutely, just misled ones.

                      It is important to not demonize your fellow countrymen who salute the same flag and recite the same anthem that you do. But you also should reject those who do behave that way on your wing of the political spectrum, and leave them friendless, when they will learn the error of their ways. The Dems are not misled. They just have a different opinion.

                        I never demonize the sick, the afflicted, the backslid, or the ill-informed.

                        It's like the story of the Catholic kittens, ff.

                        The priest saw a little boy with a box of newborn kittens, and asked the boy what kind of kittens they were.
                        "Catholic", he replied. The priest beamed with pride, and continued on.

                        A couple weeks later, the pries saw the boy with the kittens, and said, "how are our Catholic kittens doing?"
                        The boy responded, "Oh, father, they're Baptist kittens".

                        Noting the priest's surprise, the boy explained... "yesterday, they opened their eyes!"

                          Well no, many on the left are anti first and second amendment, and lean strongly towards socialism - which makes them unamerican.
                          Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

                            Sure, you're a Trump supporter, which is proof that you don't give a damn about the constitution.

                              Well, the first part is your childish false narrative, and the second has nothing whatsoever to do with my request.

                                The Act was concerned with program impoundments - this is different from foreign policy, which is a presidential power.

                                From the Act:

                                =Title X: Impoundment Control= - Impoundment Control Act provides that nothing contained in this Act, or in any amnendments made by this Act, shall be construed as: (1) asserting or conceding the constitutional powers or limitations of either the Congress or the President; (2) ratifying or approving any impoundment heretofore or hereafter executed or approved by the President or any other Federal officer or employee, except insofar as pursuant to statutory authorization then in effect; (3) affecting in any way the claims or defenses of any party to litigation concerning any impoundment; or (4) superseding any provision of law which requires the obligation of budget authority or the making of outlays thereunder.Makes technical amendments to the Antideficiency Act. Repeals the existing impoundment reporting provision of the Budget and Accounting Procedure Act of 1950.

                                *emphasis mine

                                Dubious that this even applies - Obama can rest easy.
