Constitution of the State of New Mexico says Obama can't win

It is not possible, because his base cannot vote in the state.
Every citizen of the United States, who is over the age of twenty-one years, and has resided in New Mexico twelve months, in the county ninety days, and in the precinct in which he offers to vote thirty days, next preceding the election, except idiots, insane persons and persons convicted of a felonious or infamous crime unless restored to political rights, shall be qualified to vote at all elections for public officers.

That pretty much takes out all of his voters in the state....:tooth::p

    Ha! Don't we all wish it were true. Good idea, though.

    Of course, I'm just joking. But the part I find really funny is, that is exactly how it reads in the NM constitution. Word for word. In the 2002 general election, a proposed amendment to lower the voting age to 18 and remove the terms "idiots" and "insane persons" was defeated by vote. It is still written exacty how I quoted it above.

    Of course you have to remember when the NM Constitution (effective 1-6-1912) was written.....the term "Idiot" was not a derogatory term, but rather utilized to mean "persons of limited mental facilities"...to put it in a nice way.

    Still....it's pretty damn funny in current context! :tooth:
    God show's mercy on drunks and dumb animals.........two outa three ain't a bad score!
