Top Republican Distances Himself From GOP's Election-Rigging Plan

Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) distanced himself from his partyís effort to rig the election by appropriating electoral votes based on gerrymandered Congressional districts, telling MSNBCís Andrea Mitchell on Friday that he opposes the effort.

Republican party leaders in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan have proposed legislation that would change how most electoral votes are allocated, awarding more electoral votes to the winner of individual Congressional districts, rather than the winner of the state as a whole.

Since Republicans plan to implement the proposal in states that are heavily gerrymandered to favor the GOP, the resulting maps would guarantee that Republican candidates would win a majority of each stateís electoral votes, even if the Democratic candidate wins the state as a whole.

A growing number of Republicans have rejected the plan. Barbour has now joined their ranks:

You want proof? Go learn all of the mathematics you can, learn all of the science you can, and learn to have a vast imagination. After this you'll see how illogical the Bible really is after you read it. I mean come on! Did people who burned and slaughtered each other because of beliefs know more about our universe than what the smartest minds of today know? You can either take the next logical step and search for truth, or you can continue to take evidence from one single book as to why you really exist today. I'm telling you, a lot of the questions many of you seek have been answered but a lot of you deny the evidence. Who is more humble? The people who say you must live your life by this book (Bible) and forget all of the lives and fallacies of it, or the scientists with an open mind who accept everything the universe has to teach them? The same spiritual performing that people find in religion can be found in science, by coming to know, if you will, the mind of God.

Diary of an Unborn Child
OCTOBER 5:
Today my life began. My parents do not know it yet, but it is I already. And I am to be a girl. I shall have blond hair and blue eyes. Just about everything is settled though, even the fact that I shall love flowers.
OCTOBER 19:
Some say that I am not a real person yet, that only my mother exists. But I am a real person, just as a small crumb of bread is yet truly bread. My mother is. And I am.
OCTOBER 23:
My mouth is just beginning to open now. Just think, in a year or so I shall be laughing and later talking. I know what my first word will be: MAMA.
OCTOBER 25:
My heart began to beat today all by itself. From now on it shall gently beat for the rest of my life without ever stopping to rest! And after many years it will tire. It will stop, and then I shall die.
NOVEMBER 2:
I am growing a bit every day. My arms and legs are beginning to take shape. But I have to wait a long time yet before those little legs will raise me to my motherís arms, before these little arms will be able to gather flowers and embrace my father.
NOVEMBER 12:
Tiny fingers are beginning to form on my hands. Funny how small they are! Iíll be able to stroke my motherís hair with them.
NOVEMBER 20:
It wasnít until today that the doctor told mom that I am living here under her heart. Oh, how happy she must be! Are you happy, mom?
NOVEMBER 25:
My mom and dad are probably thinking about a name for me. But they donít even know that I am a little girl. I want to be called Kathy. I am getting so big already.
DECEMBER 10:
My hair is growing. It is smooth and bright and shiny. I wonder what kind of hair mom has?
DECEMBER 13:
I am just about able to see. It is dark around me. When mom brings me into the world it will be full of sunshine and flowers. But what I want more than anything is to see my mom. How do you look, mom?
DECEMBER 24:
I wonder if mom hears the whispering of my heart? Some children come into the world a little sick. But my heart is strong and healthy. It beats so evenly: tup-tup, tup-tup. Youíll have a healthy little daughter, mom!
DECEMBER 28:
Today my mother killed me.

I donít know where you are on your path
I have never stood in your shoes
I see not with your eyes.
I know not what your purpose is here
In this stage of your evolution
But I feel blessed to know you
As you are not in my life by chance
And you are my teacher
As I hope you learn from me
I pray I show reverence to you
I pray not to judge you
I wish to let you be
Who you are
Who you dream of being
I will just be beside you
And watch you grow
And the day will come for sure
When we will know why
Our paths crossed this way
And until then my friend
Be who you must be
Good Day all...

Sure...

well since u know he is real why dont u explain the big bang that put god in to existance? or is it one of those things that your god dont need a creator but with out him nothing else would ever have came to be. that just takes it back to either way u look at it one or the other needed a bang to get goin. i think ill side with science cuz atleast they can show u evidence other than its the truth becuz it says its the truth. the circular arguments the religious use are just HAHAHA. the rules u want science to follow are completely suspended for u in order for u to even have a voice in the argument anyway. all i wanna know is why can your god just form himself from nothing? isnt your main argument that something can not come from nothing? so heres your chance to be the next nobel prize winner, explain why your god can do the very thing u say can not be done without the famous cop out, god can do it cuz he is god. if thats all u got go back to grade school and start off cuz your thought process is slower than that of a pre schooler.
I say...
Since God is a Spirit, and lives in that Alternate Universe the scientists try to prove exists... We don't know much about that realm, but do get to know Him while your here, cause we all will be there at our last breath, as a friend, or an enemy of God!
If yer of a mind to, at that time... Do ask Him!

What you are describing seems to be directed to minorities, old, unemployed and impoverished whites. Country is indeed changing, yet if any dictatorship is instituted it will by pattern after Islam by christofascism. Then republicans will truly will control the Cabal.
A master race of Christians to institute the 1000 year reign of Christ. How to save the Democrats from the coming genocide on the poor and weak by blood thirsty republicans. Neocons seem to always threaten war even with their own countrymen.

VERY Interesting Analogy I saw online that completely applies to the topic at hand:

"Elephants are power animals, able to lift logs with their trunks and knock trees over using their heads.

You might think it is strange then to find that elephants are usually kept tethered by their handlers with a length of rope or small chain that they could easily break.

This IS because they have been conditioned. This is accomplished by trainers through the use of a heavy metal chain to tether the elephants while they are still young. The elephants learn during their development that they cannot break the bonds and they associate them with their limits, boundaries, and freedoms. Later, when they are fully grown and are of adult size and strength, they still believe they cannot break that bond and so they never really try.

From then on, only a rope is necessary to keep them from breaking their bonds, freeing themselves, and realizing their true strength. You do realize I am not really talking about elephants at all don't you?"

There is no better analogy to explain why: 1. religion doesn't need to be pushed on children. 2. religion has no place in schools. and 3. fundamentalists are so angry - they covet the freedom and happiness of the untethered.
