Oh my God, you have to understand, whiney little liberal **edited**: I can't get off the computer ever. I have to stay inside twenty-four hours a day. So if I don't like the content of a thread that you create on my forum (which I am confined to since I choose it in lieu of a social life), then I'm going to **edited** and complain and assert that a good, fun discussion doesn't matter.

I for one would much rather read about important "What Music Are You Listening To?" threads—POTUS, politics, and etc. don't even matter, Christ.

That was sarcasm.

Give the guy a break, you tightassed kids. The thread is relevant because the report is recent. Now shut the hell up, and if you don't want to talk about an old election's results, then don't post. Better yet, honestly debate the report and not which candidate your parents like better. Trust me—I'm sure you won't mind the one thread sitting in T/O that you don't want to open.

Sifting through that "oh, shut up—the election was forever ago lol!!!" trash is a lot more of a hassle than choosing not to type in this here box.

The Electoral College was created by our founding fathers because they thought the average citizen would be too stupid and gullible to make an intelligent decision about who will run our country.  Based on the many idiotic people I have encountered in real life and seen on the news; I have to say they made yet another wise decision.  People need to realize that they aren't voting for the president, they are just voting to decide who will choose our next president.

I could honestly care less about what amazing probability some college professor has come up with.  Odds only show likelihood and should not be taken as a guarantee.

Case Western Reserve University... not MIT, Harvard, or Brown though. I understand that an Associate Professor of Underwater Basket Weaving at the Community College of West Fargo concurs with his statistical findings. C-O-N~spiracy!!!!!!!

I have no problem with political threads, but I can't stand to hear one more liberal wine about Bush winning and proposing things like this.

Whether he won or not, he is president.

President George Bush won the election.  Get over it.  Senator John Kerry lost the election.  Get over it.  All you are doing GSmitty is bringing politics to the forum which turns into personal attacks and then nobody is happy.  There are many errors with that article, you are just trying to find some excuse as to why your favored candidate lost.  It actually makes you look like a two-year-old if you can't accept the fact that the leader of this country won fairly.  I wish you stop throwing your hissy fit soon.

The report tells me that my vote really doesn't matter, so why vote?
I am saving my vote for the local school levy from now on. The
presidential election is so rigged it's pathetic. Pathetically obvious.



God, its friggin April. Kerry lost. Bush won. Who gives a
damn? I'm not a Bush or Kerry supporter, they are both idiots.

OGM TEH LECTION ESH RIGGEDF!!!!!!! OH NOEZ.

Shut the hell up already.

Don't stop there, the more edited words you have in your post, the more you'll be respected.


I don't give a damn what you think.

Britain is a representative democracy, just as the US is.  They just have a parliamentary system instead of our republican system.

I do not believe there has EVER been, in the history of EVER, a single democracy that was not a representative democracy of some kind.  The first thing any democracy does is elect one or more leaders.

In a "pure" direct democracy, every decision would be decided by vote.  That is so silly as to defy logic.  As soon as the voters delegate decision-making authority to elected officials, you have a representative democracy.

Very true - a side effect of the electoral system is that some votes count more than others, and that can suck if you are in the "less" counted areas (which is most of the country).

But, to offset that, you get the benefit of the two-party system:  Even between elections, they are constantly readjusting to "fit" their constituency.  So even though your official vote is deeply discounted, your unofficial counts as much as you are willing to yell and complain.  I always figure that a letter to your congressman is worth hundreds of votes.

I completely understand your argument Clark. I just tend to feel less of my vote when I know it doesn't actually count for much, especially if I live in a rural area with little population.
