    Should dirt be allowed to vote over people?

    Romney backers are posting election results via county (just as McCain voters and Bush voters did in 2000-2008).

    Their argument is essentially a sea of red in America means for some reason that Obama/Kerry/Gore are clearly losers.

    Except that they ignore that much of that space is essentially empty land. Hawaii has more electoral votes then several Republican voting states but has far less land, because it has far more people.

    Therefore, if we take the logic they are pushing, that land, not people matter, should dirt be allowed to vote?

    Re: Should dirt be allowed to vote over people?

    I understand thier reasoning. Its pretty disheartening to see just a few counties appear to matter more than the majority of counties in any given state. The whole state is suppose to matter and make a difference, not one or two counties.

    But you are right that it is the people that matter and the reason that its just a few counties that "appear" to matter more than the rest is beacause that is where the majority of people live. The solid red and blue is illusionary. I would bet that if you used dots instead of solid colors the whole thing would look more purple than red or blue in most (not all) counties across the US.

    The dirt would vote native american, true to the people who originally inhabited America.

    Sure, Democrats should be allowed to vote, as long as they show valid ID.
