    Re: Nyc does not reflect our entire state

    If they're doing it to please the masses, wouldn't they just go with the popular vote?

    I'm talking about the election. Not the end results.

    They want people to feel like they really have a voice in who gets elected.

    Re: Nyc does not reflect our entire state

    when obama took office the market was around 6500 now it is hovering around 13000 not to bad,also last time i checked he was leading in the popular vote.Peoples votes do matter because whoever wins the popular vote a state gets the electoral votes. If you didnt complain when the system worked for you ,you cant complain when it works against you.The election system we have in this country works better then any country in the world so stop being a sore loser cry baby. Oh by the way i wrote in ron paul.

    Beads? We don't need no stinkin beads.

    At least you voted for the right person. Not every state has laws requiring electorates to vote for the popular vote.

    I'm not crying. I already know what's coming. Just going to have to hunker down and load up on precious metals. Lead and brass.

    http://www.archives.gov/federal-regi...l#restrictions

    There is no Constitutional provision or Federal law that requires Electors to vote according to the results of the popular vote in their States. Some States, however, require Electors to cast their votes according to the popular vote. These pledges fall into two categories—Electors bound by State law and those bound by pledges to political parties.

    The U.S. Supreme Court has held that the Constitution does not require that Electors be completely free to act as they choose and therefore, political parties may extract pledges from electors to vote for the parties’ nominees. Some State laws provide that so-called "faithless Electors"; may be subject to fines or may be disqualified for casting an invalid vote and be replaced by a substitute elector. The Supreme Court has not specifically ruled on the question of whether pledges and penalties for failure to vote as pledged may be enforced under the Constitution. No Elector has ever been prosecuted for failing to vote as pledged.

    Re: Nyc does not reflect our entire state

    There is no word that is more denigrating and dismissive than the Marxist word "masses". None of us consider ourselves as part of the "masses", but as individuals with our own concerns and opinions.


    Regardless of party or ideology, to refer to the majority of Americans as the "masses" implies an ignorant, clueless, bunch of sheep. I would not use this term for anyone on this site or anyone I know.

    Most Americans are a bunch of sheep. Yesterday proved it.

    Listen, I would have preferred someone like Ron Paul to be in the mix also, but lets be realistic here. Writing in a name makes a great statement, but if you like Ron Paul, then you already lean right of center, and voting for him is taking a vote away from Romney, and essentially voting for Obama.

    Re: Nyc does not reflect our entire state

    I can equate this election to given peanuts to an elephant. The elephant is very happy standing there taking the peanuts. What the elephant failed to realized is that the peanuts have a coast. Sometime in the not to distant future the person giving the elephant peanuts is going to shoot the elephant in the head and take his ivory tusks to pay for the peanuts.
