You know what I think is the great thing about this country.. our electoral system.

I mean, how could we ever live without the electoral college..

I mean, hey, I know you dem asses hate it, and I being a repub shithead surrounded by a state of dems absolutely detest it..

"Each state has a number of electors equal to the number of its U.S. senators (2 in each state) plus the number of its U.S. representatives, which varies according to the state's population. Currently, the Electoral College includes 538 electors, 535 for the total number of congressional members, and three who represent Washington, D.C., as allowed by the 23rd Amendment. On the Monday following the second Wednesday in December, the electors of each state meet in their respective state capitals to officially cast their votes for president and vice president. These votes are then sealed and sent to the president of the Senate, who on Jan. 6 opens and reads the votes in the presence of both houses of Congress. The winner is sworn into office at noon Jan. 20. Most of the time, electors cast their votes for the candidate who has received the most votes in that particular state. However, there have been times when electors have voted contrary to the people's decision, which is entirely legal."

Yes yes, the whole votes shouldn't go only to populace centers, but that is stupid. votes go to people. I think we should all have equal say in a democracy...

I'm not afraid to admit I voted for bush, it's what we republicans do... I do however feel strongly that Gore should have been President based on popular votes.

It's not a democratic issue, a republican issue, it's a god damn common sense issue.

Because really, my vote counts for 2 things in the state of MD. Jack and Shit, and Jack left town.

and btw, this exerpt from the above paragraph drives me nuts "However, there have been times when electors have voted contrary to the people's decision, which is entirely legal".

It's the time of the 4 years where everyone's politcal opinions bloom like Goatse's ass.
