Interesting article by David Frum:

America's voting system is a disgrace - CNN.com

The article illustrates a dichotomy I've often marveled at: that the U.S. can be at both the cutting edge and toward the bottom of the totem pole, depending on the issue.

Yeah, well, the point is to bring more attention to something that, while it may seem academic to you, most Americans are largely ignorant to.

It's like handing people blank checks with no real controls. What does anyone think will happen?

Maybe because it is run differently by each state.

No, it's more like:
Next time, let's have the two top parties run together on the SAME ticket.
Save billions of dollars in campaigning, and give it all to me!

Banks.

Owned and run by the GObP.

Oh, yeah, what could possibly go wrong.

Maybe because it is run differently by each state.

When rw's say they want something or other done at the state level, they never think it through, never really look at what a disaster that has been in the past. Nor do they ever seem to think about how much ore it will cost.
