the Hong Kong thing, and the chinese came back to the table. you should listen to the reasons the president gave yesterday. why didn't you if you were curious?
Voter ID has nothing to do with one man one vote.
And it is the GOP blocking all attempts to secure the integrity of the vote.
“Fair” isn’t irrelevant.
We are going to change it.
now that's just special, when one can't even fathom a discussion point.
Go for it. I'd prefer a decent candidate but you can go the other route if you want.
you are? how?
I thought progressives were all about fair? what happened? can't compete evenly anymore eh? yeah we get your losing strategies, it's why you lose.
If we divide the total U.S. population (about 319 million) by 538 electoral college votes, each electoral college vote should equal about 593K people.
So if we take our nation’s most populated state—California—and divide its 39.1 million population by 593K, the state should get sixty-six electoral college votes. Under the Electoral College system, however, the state only gets fifty-five electoral college votes.
That’s a difference of eleven electoral college votes.
Meanwhile, if we look at one of our nation’s least populated states—North Dakota—and divide its 757K population by 593K, the state should get about one electoral vote. However, under the Electoral College system, it gets three votes.
That means in North Dakota a voter has three times more say in who gets to become President. And it means that a California voter has a vote that is worth only about 83 percent as the rest of the country.
well then you need to get rid of senators and representatives that the electoral college is based off of.
The forefathers placed a limit on the number of Electoral Votes that can be distributed so States Like California could not game the system by importing Hordes of Illegal Immigrants in to their state and hog Federal Resources and Wield an unfair advantage over the rest of The Country, politically.
If you want a more representative number for your EC votes, Deport the 15 Million Illegals living in your state.
