The fact someone can get more votes and lose is nothing short of a total joke.
    Work out the mechanics of the process some day and get back to us.

    For some strange reason the Al Gore team, in addition to trying to manufacture votes in Floriduh! was also trying to get Electoral College Electors supposedly dedicated to Bush to switch and cast their vote for Gore. Why would Al Gore try that kind of underhanded trick if the electors were constrained to vote for the "winner takes all" candidate? Answer: The electors are chosen by the victorious party, but their votes are still their votes.

    If you're going to insist on being ignorant about how the EC works, can you at least be silent about your ignorance?

    How did Clinton run up the debt? Oh yeah, he didn't. Besides, how does debt violate the Constitution? You're such an idiot.

    Re: Amendment to get rid of the Electoral College?

    In truth, our health care has become too expensive for all but the most wealthy. To say that most Americans do not want the government to "meddle" is true.. No body wants "meddling"....Its also true that most of us are not wealthy, and do want something done....and who better than our federal government, to bypass the AMA and lawyers.
    My idea is a pay as you go system and insurance only for catastrophes (cancer, polio, serious accidents, ect).
    It is the insurance and its misuse by the people and the doctors that has caused medical care to be so damned expensive. Also, we must get rid of the lawyers and the AMA...this would help...talk about two impossible tasks...

    Oh please, this is hardly a socialist government Scarecrow. Almost every President since John Adams has broken the Constitution in someway, and we still survive.

    Your right, sorry. If he is a conservative why does he state Republican beliefs are unconstitutional?

    Three more questions for you:
    1. How does two president's actions represent every Democrat when there has been a lot more than 2 democratic presidents?
    2. What do Republicans believe in that violates the Constitution (since you said republican beliefs violate the Constitution)?
    3. What does the Constitutionality of these two parties beliefs have to do with the poll?

    Oh, yes, he did.

    The national debt increased EVERY SINGLE YEAR under his regime, accounting gimmicks using FICA revenues in the operating funds without substracting the corresponding debts incurred is an accounting scam that would put accountants in the commercial world in jail, but dupes find it acceptable when their government does it. Stupid dupes, don't they know that tricks are for prostitutes, not accountants?

    Clinton took the defense savings from the former presidents' victory in the Cold War and spent them on more socialist BS, instead of allowing the savings to show in the budget. He then took the savings from successfully paying off the Savings and Loan snafu, on which he profitted, and spent those, instead of reducing government spending by that much. Two MAJOR multi-hundred billion dollar savings events simply redirected into more perpetual government spending by the Democrats' Rapist Co-Presidency.

    So, no, the rapist impeached pervert corrupt president wasn't any good at all.
