    Wow, take off the tinfoil hat. Obama is busy handing America over to his foreign masters, and this is the best you can come up with?

    Stick to the ‘toon at hand, please boys?
    Those are paintball splatters he’s got on the 2012 side, and that’s basically how the campaigns have been.
    I’m surprised he’s still smiling; some of those had to hurt. ; )

    question from a canadian. IF and I am saying IF, the electoral college picks the president, then why spend all the time and money asking the people for their vote. In canada the people vote (not enough by the way) and the guy or gal with the most votes gets the job. For Better or worse. I mean not enough people get out and vote. you only get one vote, even if you vote for the loser. which most politicians are. politics. two words, poli meaning many tics meaning blood sucking animals. go figure

    Your system is much too simple, one man one vote is much more effective when you toss in the electoral college and gerrymandered congressional districts.
    Actually it makes as much sense to me as the way we deliver healthcare.

    “poli” is government (originally, city/state), tick is a pest. “tic” is a twitch. ie: US politics = US governance twitches.

    Good question. My take is that they do it on the honor system—i.e. they give their votes to the candidates who get the largest popular vote in their state (with exceptions!)—and that to violate that honor would mean the potential end of an institution (for better or worse).
    States mull ways to manipulate the system, but usually the efforts are beaten back. (e.g. Pennsylvania is dickering around with the system now to make it more GOP friendly to offset the influence of Philly and Pittsburgh voters).

    Obama won by three million votes, 73,858 in Florida, and by 126 votes in the electoral college. I would call that a landslide.

    i think the next goal of the Democratic Partty is to make some of the arrogant Republican Governors unemployed.

    I think you need to look at how both sytems work. You vote for the candidate in your district, the party that gets the most districts wins the PM office.

    The US vote for their president (AKA the electoral college voter) and the person who is elected votes for their rep for president. I’m pretty sure all hell would break lose if a district voted one way and their rep decided to go with the other guy.

    That being said, the biggest things they could take from the Canadian system is to attach their voter registration to their tax returns (you know, the little box you tick on yours) and national standardization of the rules and forms.

    Poor folks spend money, whatever the source. Their spending creates jobs. Individually they have little impact, but collectively they matter.

    They also pay sales taxes on most of their purchases…the preceding also applies to the much-mligned “public employees”.

    Finally, their kids make up most of our military forces. EVERYBODY wins when the system is more just, and the safety net is dense.
