    That was the general idea of the electoral college. Who the hell would goto PA and Ohio 50 some odd times during an election season when they would only have to goto NY, Cali and Texas.

    Got to love the founders. and you have to question anyone who seems to think they know better than the founders on what type of government we need set up. There is a reason we have checks and balances after all. So why not just rip them all out and somehow we will remain a free nation.

    On a side note, maybe we should start the Pennsylvanians against stupid ideas group. First on the agenda will be preventing Kerry from being elected. how stupid an idea is that. lol
