Pethegreat;4591913Look at the assassinations of US presidents. It only took Oswald 3 bullets to change the government back in 1963. I don't look at hypothetical situations. I am here in the US by chance. The rest of your post is trolling material, so I am not even going to respond to that.

You sound like, you think your shit dont stink.......You dont even vote, how moronic an attitude you have.One wonders if your an actual US citizen, and if you applied to be one at all, and one wonders what selfish motivations it took to want all the rights of citizenship, yet your to lazy and inconsiderate to vote in the same country that has a system of democratic order, what happens if no-one at all votes.Imagine how fucked this world would be if everyone had your moronic view !Why have a democratic system at all, lets all live under chineese rule, sound good ? And if you dont do hypotheticals, l guess we will never see you in the religious thread again will we............or any other thread yes ? Do you just lie when it suites you ?

I already signed up, not to elect the best choice, but to not elect the worst. I want to be able to say "I told you so" if Obama wins and (when)he tanks the country.

I will vote, albeit reluctantly . . . I disapprove of both candidates, but I will choose the one who will screw us over the least in my opinion . . . once I decided which that is . . . not that it'll matter, the electoral college'll pick the worse one anyway haha.

I actually find voting effective in local level elections since those guys tend to determine what levels they'll tax you on your property, possible changes on education, bond elections, city codes, and so on. Most people tend to over look them though.

I personally try to vote when I can, but if you don't want to vote, that's your right to a free choice as an American.

I vote locally but the Presidential Elections are a sham.

There should be a major push to ban the Electoral College. It had a purpose 225 years ago but with internet and media its purpose has passed on and now its a obsolete archaic political reward for loyal political service.

852 people who for the most part no one votes in to office have no business determining the will of over 300 million Americans.

IIRC about 23 states have passed laws requiring the popular vote to be the official vote or requiring electoral college voters to vote same as the popular vote. Now just make it a national law.

But... but... the founding fathers!!!

Seriously though, the above argument will stop what you suggested from happening every time.

Our founding fathers who created the passage "all men are created equal" were slave owners and despised the Native American population. We started on a foundation of bullshit and hypocrisy, see? You can get into the semantics of how it was a different time, but those facts remain. The sad thing is that they don't put that in your history book and conveniently leave it out. Just like they conveniently leave out the Native genocide and manifest destiny.

Therefore, that argument holds NO water.

I'm not saying it does. I think the opposite.

However, that argument will stop electoral reform guaranteed.

I liked him in The Drew Carey Show. I don't find him that funny TBH. If you really want to vote, and you don't want to vote for those candidates, vote for Ralph Nader or Ron Paul. Those votes defintely won't count.
