For those who want the Electoral College eliminated

The following is a link Ken Edwards provided below.
Even I had no clue as to how totally commanding President Bush's victory was. If YOU look at this map, there can be only ONE conclusion as to why anyone would want the Electoral College eliminated: Having the welfare state rule the working classes. Doubt me, then explain this:

George I'm confused

Why should I give up the political posts when you are not? Double standard?


I looked- I'm seeing Blue as areas of higher population..

This response submitted by Junipera on 11/4/04 at 10:36 PM. ( ) 66.66.1.216

Blue is where the jobs are, universities are--more opportunities, better standard of living, higher per capita income, quality medical care, more services, better educated people, etc.---- So you pass this stuff amongst yourselves and make your own "Grassy Knoll" (tea leaves) conclusions----- Mars to george.


It's a simple thing

George, I'm not sure why you're having a hard time with this? Majority of votes cast wins the election. Period. What's so difficult about that?

in most of the blue areas you will see the inner city ghettos, drug user, southern black trash to lazy to work give me a handout, my vote can be bought for a Colt 45 or Old English, or the Queer non Christian, Political corret whiners.

Damn straight I am saying like it is.

This is my opinion and does not reflect the the opinions of the site owners.


Why not split electorial votes instead of winner take all

This response submitted by Ed on 11/5/04 at 12:27 AM. ( ) 216.51.174.213

Why not split the electorial votes in the states by the percentage of the vote? If the state has 10 electorial vote and one guy gets 60% of the vote give him 6 electorial votes and the other guy gets 4 electorial votes.

Colorado was voteing on it this year but I assume it didn't pass as it would have been effective in this race if passed and I didn't see that they slpit thier electorial votes


Tony did you take Civics

You ask George whats so hard about it yet you yourself don't seem to understand we live in a Constitutional Republic not a Democracy.Its not who gets the most votes wins and never has been..Its who gets 270..Thats it.

Charles, you beat me to it. Thanx

Tony, for someone of with your education, it amazes me that your intelligence isn't equal. This microcosm of neoliberals here reflect the national drive towards socialism. To break down the tenets of the U.S. Constitution individually is the goal of this socialist movement. Once one is broken, none are sacred from that point on. That's what's truly scary.

And Mellonhead, to call you an idiot is to imply you have some modicum of intelligence.


Our national vote never counts

If you look at the state of NY, you will see that about 80% of it is red. Our vote is ALWAYS sucked up by the NY City liberals. Well, I have to thank all of you Southerners for doing the job for us. If you ever secede again, at least you'll have somebody "behind the lines."


Too inteligent or too stubborn

This response submitted by TonyH on 11/5/04 at 5:53 PM. ( ) 216.120.159.168

Again, I understand the merits of the electoral college. I simply believe the merits are wrong. But insult my inteligence if it makes your pants feel tigher. I know what I'm saying.


No Tony, I didn't mean it that way

This response submitted by George on 11/6/04 at 9:28 AM. ( ) 64.12.116.199

What I meant was that I'm incapable of understanding what logic you're using to say that. Or at least, you haven't explained it well enough where I CAN. In a Democracy, you are right, but the US is NOT a Democracy. We have a republican standard of government whereby we elect representatives through democratic means to vote for us in a republican standard of government. To follow through your statement, we could save billions of dollars by firing the whole Congress, Supreme Court and President and just vote on every issue. But then our capitalistic means of survival would vanish.
