For a country that supposedly leads the way on democracy, your weird electoral college system is worse than China or Russia systems. When will you abolish that? It's crazy.

There is no good system. But you most definately cannot leave a world super power exclusively to the votes of its people (do you know how many idiots there are in the US?)

Say every single brainwashed fag in New York and California votes for their messiah. They would be well on their way to winning the popular vote. It's divided by states so something like that can't happen. The programming isn't that good yet.......voting machines and fires take care of the other dissenters. But the real joke is - it doesn't really matter who you vote for.

So effectively you ignore about 40 states to try and win college votes in the most populous . Sorry, but in a proper democracy it's should simply be the person with most votes wins. End of. Has Obama or Romney ever set foot in places like Montana?

Some states are "in the bag" like california is so democrat there is is no point in wasting money campaigning.

Elections in USA are a fine science balancing Hype, science, fraud and persuasion in a well orchestrated dance. Most Americans identify themselves as "republicans" or "democrats" there are only a few who change sides. Consequently elections are interesting affairs focused on the few "swingers"

With only 2 candidates (effectively) you don't give the people much choice. Goes back to your archaic 2 party system. You need a third and fourth choice to compete effectively for the millions who aren't represented by either democrat republican or rag tag independents.

If you really think about it, deeply, there is no good system for electing leadership due to media, due to lying, due to voter fraud, due to many reasons. Its just the way America does its voting for the new puppet. Seriously, this is old news. I didn't vote, and have never voted. Yes its a "right" but if you really want to get involved in politics, vote for your local and state governments.

Repubs have no room for complaints (see the year 2000 election).
