Default ELECTORAL COLLEGE

The debate has started again as to whether the US Constitution should be amended in order to change the presidential election process. Some promote
eliminating the Electoral College in favor of a direct popular vote for president while others believe the Electoral College should remain unchanged. Just as compromise solved the initial problems of the framers so it is that compromise can solve this problem. The solution is to change the electoral votes to electoral points and reward each candidate a percentage of points based on the percentage of popular votes received in each state.

This would eliminate the "winner take all" system thus allowing for all the votes to count. A voter is more apt to believe their vote counted when a percentage of popular votes are taken into account rather than the "all or nothing" system currently in existence. Further, this new system would integrate the desire for a popular vote for president with the need for the individual states to determine who actually gets elected.

As for political primaries the number of delegates awarded in each state should be determined by the percentage of votes won by each candidate.

For 2016 multiplying the percentage of votes each candidate received {in each state} times the number of electoral votes {in each state} results in the following: Clinton 256.985 and Trump 253.482.

JOEBIALEK,

1. go to Kroger and pick up the most succulent ear of corn that they have

2. go home, shuck the corn, making sure to remove all the silky strands on it

3. fill a pot with water, put the corn in the pot, and put it on the stove eye set to "high"

4. when the water begins to boil, take the pot off of the heat and let it sit for just a few minutes--you want the corn to be cooked but not soggy, just nice and crisp

5. remove the corn from the water and while still hot, slather in butter and salt to taste

6. sit down and enjoy your well deserved treat, making sure to finish and savor every last kernel

7. take the corn cob, and your opinions, and shove them so far up your ass that only Richard Gere's gerbil will be able to get it out

If dumbass liberals [redundant] wish to change the rules, go ahead. They've had New York and Cali locked up for decades now, but if y'all want to put 'em back in play for the R's, keep pushing this.

Ought you be thanking Trump by now for hiring a Zionist ambassador to Israel to counter the crypto-muslim in chief who just backstabbed that country yet again the other day?

no, I don't support Jewish fascism or any other kind of fascism because I don't feel crippling inadequacy over the size of my penis

So you think its fair O and the U.N. criminalize a bunch of Israeli's for living in certain regions of the country?


Point is, Obama, like most foaming at the mouth libs these days, don't lose with dignity. Worse yet, O is doing all he can to muck things up for the next administration at a time most lame ducks take the ceremonial bow out while pardoning some cronies.

The West Bank is not part of Israel, it's an illegal annexation project
