    as long as the electoral college exists, an individual’s vote will never count.

    Your vote DOES count. How do you think electoral college delegates are chosen?

    Enlightenment can be a real downer sometimes.

    When you begin to believe that your vote doesn’t count, just remember Florida in 2000 ! I urge everyone who hasn’t yet done so, to get out today and vote – even if you don’t like the choices, make your choice, and VOTE !

    Every vote counts.
    Even if you vote for the other guy, you send a message to every candidate that you as a citizen care about your country.

    If we get another president who didn’t win the real vote, they better get rid of it once and for all.

    The electoral college doesn’t matter because the frauds have long since decided the election. A few examples: Video of pols on camera talking about how to steal votes by the hundred. Busloads of non-citizens being driven to the polls and told how to vote. Voting machines in at least 6 states recording the vote for one candidate as being for the other one. Pols being arrested for voting multiple times. Pols posting on facebook how they’ve voted 4 times and plan on voting more. Military ballots not being mailed on time. Military ballots vanishing in fires. Military voters being removed from the rolls because they didn’t vote while they were deployed. etc. etc.. etc.

    Our elections are slightly less honest than those in North Korea, the USSR, or any respectable banana republic.

    Wish they would get rid of the elect. col…..with comps. it would take no time at all to count the votes…(I do remember Florida, a mess. ) But I will vote and pretend it counts. I have been voting for quite awhile and remember some props. won by a landslide in the past but not ever put into effect …But I will still vote, maybe things will change…

    Every vote counts, but it doesn’t do any good if your state always votes the opposite of your choice…..When I see both candidates speak for more than a few minutes, I can’t help but notice that Obama knows what he’s talking about, and Romney won’t even give us a clue about what he’s talking about…or intends to do He’s been all over the map on everything…At least with the President we know what we get….a moderate Democratic President….And they are basically harmless, but good for business…And workers too…

    Hey, electoral college? It would be wiser to let the freshman class at Western Michigan University chose the president….just not on Saturday morning…

    Seriously, Friday night would be better, and a lot more entertaining…

    Look, I really try to be cynical about this process, I really do…But the fact of the matter is we get to freakin’ vote…That’s gotta count for something…I wish we used the purple finger here…Stop. Think. Vote….

    The UN was concerned about vote fraud after Bush stole two elections. Texas threatened to arrest anyone from the UN who turned up to monitor their vote. I guess they don’t want their corruption exposed.

    People who say we should eliminate the electoral college probably don’t realize it’s purpose. If elections were done by straight popular vote the more densely populated states such as New York and California would have the lion’s share in determining the future of our government. About 1/2 of the states wouldn’t be worth campaigning for at all because their population numbers simply wouldn’t matter enough. So by popular vote alone a select few states would have almost all the say in our government and too many states would have little or no say. The electoral college is divided up exactly the same as the congressional seats are divided amongst the states. There’s a reason the founding fathers structured things this way. This nation is a union of states after all and all states must be fairly represented in governance and vote. Not just the few really crowded ones. If you can’t see the logic in this still, maybe if we switched to popular vote like you say perhaps they’ll just stop bothering with elections in your state entirely. I bet you’d get it then.
