Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

You don't think the Democrats wouldn't have already done this if the shoe were on the other foot?
If these states vote to change the rules, them's the breaks.
they never did, not after Reagan, not after BushI, not after BushII.

Funny how you project all the sinister acts of Republiclowns onto the Dems.

Your level of discussion is that of a 5th grader.

"Well, they would do it, too!! NYAA NYAA NYAA!!"

This is lengthy but important.
As the Republican National Committee concludes its three-day meeting in Charlotte, N.C., Republicans are looking to improve their standing in time for the next presidential election. They want to do a better job reaching out to Latinos, they want to soften their tone when it comes to social issues, and they want to narrow their technological and get-out-the-vote operation gap with Democrats.
Here's the big news...
Some Republicans are looking to change the Electoral College system in battleground states that Democrats have won in the last two cycles. As the Washington Post reports, Republicans in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia -- all controlled at the state level by the GOP -- have proposed awarding their Electoral College votes by congressional district instead of the winner-take-all approach used by every state except for two (Maine and Nebraska).“No state is moving quicker than Virginia, where state senators are likely to vote on the plan as soon as next week,” the Post says.
That would give the GOP a HUGE advantage: The Republicans advocating these changes say they would give smaller communities more of a voice in presidential battleground states. But there’s a bigger story here: The moves would give the GOP a significant advantage due to the fact that redistricting has concentrated the Democratic vote to just a handful of congressional districts in these states. Take Virginia, for example: Obama won the state in 2012 by four percentage points and by about 150,000 votes -- and he took all of the state’s 13 electoral votes. But under the proposed changes, Mitt Romney would have won nine of the state’s electoral votes to Obama’s four. Put another way, if every electoral vote in the country was awarded by congressional district, Romney would have defeated Obama, 276 to 262 in electoral votes according to Emory University’s Alan Abramowitz. And if only the states of Florida, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin were changed to this system, Obama would have BARELY won, 271-267, Abramowitz adds.

This should raise a few eyebrows.
Raises my eyebrows that they would try such an obvious cheat. Based on the last election they're saying Romney would have won the electoral vote even though Obama won the popular vote by 10 million. That'd be a friggin' travesty and probably the end of the electoral college entirely.

Yet, overeating is not even close to being on the politically correct no-no list.
Neither drug abuse and alcohol-related health problems.
Well, you've got multiple issues.

You're a smoker.

You're overweight.

You have high cholesterol (i.e. clogged arteries)

I'm all for penalizing those who practice dangerous health practices, including obesity, alcoholism, smoking, drug use.

We had a hunting show schedule in PA in early Feb.
Since this is a hunting show and in light of Newtown, show managed said gun vendors could not show or sell assault type rifles at the show.
The gun nuts & NRA went bonkers & had a fit & gun vendors withdrew from the show. The net result is the show is basically cancelled.
There are a lot of gunaphobes that would ban these types of events where guns are sold.
I find it funny that the gun nuts just did what the gunaphobes had hoped - closed down a gun selling show.
"real dumb"
Your kind of folks. Have a show for sportsman, hunters, and then restrict what the vendors sell. It has to piss you off but gun and ammunition sales are booming across the nation. As a professional 'gunaphobe' why do you not start a movement to suspend the 2nd. amendment?

It's up to the states. Seems fair to me seeing that's the way it is in most states.

Winner takes all in these states despite bipartisan districts doesn't seem fair to some of us.

We are way beyond that now unless you want to cut military spending too, which oh by the way Romney wanted to increase by a couple trillion. Cost him my vote.

If states like Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia were all controlled at the state level by Democrats, you can be sure proposing awarding Electoral College votes by congressional districts instead of the winner-take-all approach used by every state except for two would already have been the new rules.

The party chairman Rinse Pubis is openly advocating this, flat out claiming that it won't matter who the Democrats run. How is this legal?

I am in favor of eliminating the EC altogether anyway
