   333,000 votes in four swing states would have given Romney the Presidency. Also, a set of external genitalia would have given him an uncle instead of an aunt

And he would have lost the popular vote still by a large margin. The electoral college is a f*cked up system.

How is it a democracy if half the people want someone else as president? Maybe they should split the term percentagewise based on votes. Obama first 25 months, Romney last 23? Stagger it?

swaniefrmreddeer: The electoral college is a f*cked up system.


Why? It prevents one or two states from completely disenfranchising the rest of the nation. As much as you'd like it to be, the United States is not "California and New York".  The Electoral College isn't a perfect system, but going strictly by popular vote would be a disaster.

Obama's victory doesn't constitute a mandate for his far left agenda to "transform America" into some nightmarish amalgam combining the worst features of a European socialist state with an Indonesian oligarchy.

Really is, 4-5 states should not decide an election. Candidates not even needing to campaign in the largest states as well is just silly. And it does stifle voter turnout. If you live in CA and are not a Democrat, Texas and not a Pub, you know your vote is thrown out, so why do it? Same here in VT, unless you are a Democrat, your vote is useless.

No reason to have the college, none.

Obama gets to be president every day from Midnight to 12:30pm. Romney takes over again until 11:57pm; Gary Johnson gets the 11:57pm to midnight shift.

300k (200k in AZ and 100k in NC) would have given him 356. Too lazy to find the shortest route to 400 though.

Well, that's all I needed to hear to consider an armed revolt to be justified!

Otherwise, I'm failing to see the point. Perhaps we can talk about the narrow margin by which GW Bush won the popular vote?

Despite losing the popular vote 51% to 48%--not a landslide for Obama by any means...

Yeah it's not like the '04 landslide where GWB got 50.73%.

Breitbart's corpse is right, republicans shouldn't take this loss as meaning anything, the "squeaker" win that Zerobama pulled off shouldn't cause them to change their OP one bit. If anything the votes they did get were because of them and they should double down on the anti-science, morality police, anti-immigration rhetoric and throw in some more fear mongering and promises of military adventurism too all while ignoring any criticism or fact checking from the liebral-leftist-lamestream-driveby-med ia conspiracy. In short, suck it libs!

Not protesting Obama or anything, but the Electoral College "winner take all" system is absolutely stupid.

Every election we hear the "your vote counts" garbage. That's not true. The message should be "your vote counts if you live in Ohio or Florida".

I understand why we don't do national popular voting (recount nightmares... yikes)... but voting should be done electorally be DISTRICT instead of at the STATE level.
In other words,
All states should do what Nebraska and Maine do.
.
It makes the most sense, and it doesn't leave voters feeling disenfranchised like the current system does.

However, it would never pass, because liberals in blue states and conservatives in red states wouldn't allow it.

House Dems received significantly more votes than GOP Reps. That identifies a significant problem with how the districts are drawn.

They should each take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the weak.

But all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting.

First, as someone else pointed out, it's a Democratic Republic.

Second, More than half the people who voted wanted Obama as president. He won the electoral college votes and the Popular vote. Therefore, Obama is president again.

This is how Democratic Republics work.

Dems just have the advantage. Mexicans, blacks are all in their corner no matter what and they breed like crazy. That alone gives them elections. Then you have moron young people, who cannot get a job out of college but still scream for Obama's nut droppings.

Just going to get way worse before, if ever, it gets better. Math is simple, and we cannot afford this route as a country. Eventually, you run out of successful people to tax because their won't be enough, and the screaming hordes of young unemployed Democrats will never see reality because they are idiots.
