Recommended Posts

Well, you have the corrupt Obamao admin dropping the charges, inexlicably, against the new black panthers.


you have people in cherry picked districts (read: Democrat/mintority advantage) giving people there the right

to vote as many times as there are candidates.

Come on.


You have widespread voter fraud, including prison inmates voting illegally.


You have the corrupt Obamao admin using the suckup dishonest liberal media to spread lies and assassinate

republican opponents to Obamao, and opponents running against Dems for Congressional seats.


You have this corrupt socialist president lambasting the UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT for allowing

corporations to donate political $$$$ as they see fit... JUST LIKE THE FREAKIN NEA does, JUST LIKE THE GIANT LABOR

UNIONS DO, JUST LIKE ALL THE STATE TEACHERS UNIONS DO. but the unions always seem to donate to Democrats.

The corps will probably donate more to Republicans. There goes the Democrat two faced huge advantage.

Too freakin bad, Obamaosucks.





You have the leftists in Congress and all over the liberal marxist media lying about Bush and Cheney outing Plame.

It never happened.

It was Holbrook. Once that was determined, the corrupt leftists in the media and Congress went silent.


You have the phoney investigations and declarations of racist wrongdoing in that the Bush admin fired those attorneys.

It was perfectly legal, but the investigation was only last week dropped, and they found no cause for charges at all.


You have the corrupt Obamao admin and leftists in Congress WANTING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO COME HERE, so they

can give them amnesty, and get their millions of votes in a bloc of depedent, easily duped and lied to and manipulated and

uneducated immigrants who BROKE THE LAW.





There's more.


But check this out: Now the leftists want a popular vote, so the illegals, and the giant populated mass voters

can dominate every election, leaving all sorts of states completely irrelevent to the electoral process.


What next? Maybe giving all Hispanics and Blacks ten votes a person? Or banning white people from voting?


or, maybe just getting rid of the electoral college?


I think we are in for big, big trouble.



Mass. Legislature approves plan to bypass Electoral College


July 27, 2010 05:09 PM pointer_top.gif By Martin Finucane, Globe Staff The Massachusetts Legislature has approved a new law intended to bypass the Electoral College system and ensure that the winner of the presidential election is determined by the national popular vote.


"What we are submitting is the idea that the president should be selected by the majority of people in the United States of America," Senator James B. Eldridge, an Acton Democrat, said before the Senate voted to enact the bill.


Under the new bill, he said, "Every vote will be of the same weight across the country."


But Senate minority leader Richard Tisei said the state was meddling with a system that was "tried and true" since the founding of the country.


"We've had a lot of bad ideas come through this chamber over the years, but this is going to be one of the worst ideas that has surfaced and actually garnered some support," said Tisei, who is also the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor.


The bill, which passed on a 28-to-9 vote, now heads to Democratic Governor Deval Patrick's desk. The governor has said in the past that he supports the bill, said his spokeswoman Kim Haberlin.


Under the law, which was enacted by the House last week, all 12 of the state's electoral votes would be awarded to the candidate who receives the most votes nationally.


Supporters are campaigning, state by state, to get such bills enacted. Once states accounting for a majority of the electoral votes (or 270 of 538) have enacted the laws, the candidate winning the most votes nationally would be assured a majority of Electoral College votes. That would hold true no matter how the other states vote and how their electoral votes are distributed.


Illinois, New Jersey, Hawaii, Maryland, and Washington have already approved the legislation, according to the National Popular Vote campaign's website. The new system would only go into effect once a sufficient number of states have passed laws that would make it work.


The current Electoral College system is confusing and causes presidential candidates to focus unduly on a handful of battleground states, supporters say. They also say that the popular vote winner has lost in four of the nation's 56 elections.


Presidential candidates now "ignore wide swaths of the country" they consider strong blue or red states and focus their campaigning on contested states, Eldridge said. If the president were picked by national popular vote, he argued, candidates would spread their attention out more evenly.


"That's really what we're talking about is making sure that every voter, no matter where they live, that they're being reached out to," he said.


Opponents say the current system works. They are concerned about a possible scenario where Candidate X wins nationally, but Candidate Y has won in Massachusetts. In that case, all of the state's 12 electoral votes would go to Candidate X, the candidate who was not supported by Massachusetts voters.


Tisei also criticized the proponents for not following the normal procedures to seek a constitutional amendment.


"The thing about this that bothers me the most is it's so sneaky. This is the way that liberals do things a lot of times, very sneaky," he said. "This is sort of an end run around the Constitution."


The measure passed both branches of the Legislature in 2008 but did not make it all the way through the process.
