    Yep, and if you read page 2, it states exactly what I did. If someone ran unopposed, they report 0 votes. Feel free to read the RCP article, quite a good read.

    From the fec pdf:
    In some states, there were unopposed candidates whose names did not appear on a ballot and
    therefore received no votes.

     “Total Votes,” “Total State Votes,” “Party Votes,” and “District Votes” represent all the valid
    votes cast for the candidates in the election. State totals (and the totals for the territories and the
    District of Columbia) are found in the summary charts and at the end of each state/territory
    section. Blank, void, under and over votes are not included.
    “Combined Parties” represents all the valid votes cast for one candidate, regardless of party.
    (This method is used where a candidate may be listed on the ballot more than once, with
    different party designations; i.e., in Connecticut, New York and South Carolina.)
    These votes
    are then broken down and listed by party. The party votes are enclosed by brackets [ ].

    The minority does not determine what the Govt. can and cannot do. This is basic civics class stuff.

    OK, what? Are you now trying to move the goalposts for yet again? After you've brought up how the Republicans lost the popular vote in the house you're now trying to say votes don't matter? Your arguments get weaker by the minute.

    Rinse & Repeat.

    The Trust fund got an extra 60 billion at an initial cost of 66.18B, for a loss of 6.18 billion.
    You mean a GAIN for the trust fund and the American workers that paid into it.

    And I repeat, who would you rather the Govt. borrow its money from and pays interest to?

    The number of votes matter, until they aren't in my favor, then the number of votes don't matter or perhaps only sometimes matter...

    It would have been cheaper to issue a one time transfer from the yearly federal spending of 60 billion, than to issue special funds. Why do you hate math? Do you eschew the sciences because they cannot be made to conform to your dogma?

    No, what we are all saying is that you don't understand how irrelevant the total vote is in the overall election numbers. Maybe you should seek some help to understand what is being posted

    Maybe you should learn what a representative Democracy is. Looks to me like the Republicans control the Peoples House

    Well since you're the one who mentioned that the number of votes someone receives matters perhaps you should issue a retraction or edit your post.

    lol at "the people's House" but somehow it's not "the people's president" or "the people's senate". Why is that I wonder?
