ONLY ELECTORIAL VOTES COUNT!!!!!!!!!!!!
There's no need to waste time voting, popular votes don't count. So whether you vote or not, you're just wasting time. I wonder why do people give money at these fund raisng events when the Electorial College SELECTS whose going to be President of the USA?

Give us some stats on the history of electoral votes by individual state, along with each states total popular vote. Don't be calling someone an idiot unless you can back it up. I'll be waiting.

Let me explain the system so you guys understand...

It's voting day!
Everyone Goes and Votes!
Once Voting time is up They count the Votes!
They then show the results to the Electoral College!
It is expected the the Electoral College vote the way the people request!
However they are not required to follow what the people request!
This means in Texas for Example if 61% vote Obama you would expect the Electoral College to put there votes on Obama.
Texas being a Strong Republican State might go ahead and vote and against the population because who the fuck wants Obama again?



The only thing that is actually required from the Electoral College is that they all cast the same vote meaning they can't be 50/50.


I hope this clears up the system.

I totally get that, but that's an extreme (number one, you're not going to find a 61% popular vote in Texas for Obama... maybe California, but come on!). In addition, it's rare that the Electoral Vote does not match the popular vote in that specific State. It's rare, and in the past when it ever did happen, it had little outcome on the result. It's in place so that states like Texas and California do not carry the majority of the popular vote and out-vote smaller states, thereby not giving them a voice.

Re: ONLY ELECTORIAL VOTES COUNT!!!!!!!!!!!!
The only election decided by the Electoral College is the Presidential election. All the other elections this fall are by popular vote.

When did people get so brain dead? Oh, that's right, since they started listening to the Internet tripe of its flood of error and disinformation in the massive efforts to dumb down the people of the planet. Its worked pretty good to that ends, the Aliens of the Matrix found the perfect solution.

Re: ONLY ELECTORIAL VOTES COUNT!!!!!!!!!!!!
Instead of blabbing on with hearsay...why not get the facts


From here: [link to www.archives.gov]

"Are there restrictions on who the Electors can vote for?

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.

Today, it is rare for Electors to disregard the popular vote by casting their electoral vote for someone other than their party’s candidate. Electors generally hold a leadership position in their party or were chosen to recognize years of loyal service to the party. Throughout our history as a nation, more than 99 percent of Electors have voted as pledged."

Have been asking since 1970 just what the names of the Electoral College member are... so far I have not succeeded in finding out.

In fact the very term "Electroal College" reminds me of the "Electoral College" that used to vote on who was to be the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire.. and only the Cardinals and the Kings and Princes had a vote.

it only takes 50.1% of the votes in only half the states to win the election.

that means a well placed 25% of the popular vote decides the electoral vote.

"•George W. Bush who lost by 543,816 votes to Al Gore in the 2000 election. " BUT Bush won the electoral votes...Electoral voters DO NOT need to vote as per the popular vote...

In my opinion the majority of the population have no idea of this because the media makes it sound like people do matter in the elections with all the polls, debates, fucked up commercials - which today attack their opponet instead of saying what they are going to fix or the what they can do for the people Or they are stupid or just don't give a fuck........

Sheeples if you are going to stand up for yourself PLEASE get some facts or do a fucking little research first...

Like in the 1980 election when democrats got 40.98% of the popular vote but only got 9% of the electoral votes.

or 1984 when dems got 40.56% of the popular vote but got only 2.4% of the electoral votes.

Or like when 1988 when dems got 45.65% of the popular vote but got 20% of the electoral votes.

or in 1992 when Ross Perot got 18.9% of the popular vote but a whopping 0 electoral votes.
