Do You Know What This Is?

The top map shows the congressional districts won by Obama in states that Romney won. The bottom map shows the congressional districts won by Romney in states that Obama won.

In other words, if electoral votes were allocated by congressional district, rather than a popular vote winner take all of each state, Romney would be president.

This new way of counting votes is being introduced as legislation in Virginia.

    It’s time to retire the Electoral College. Libs are killing us with redistricting crap.

    You can pretty much bet dems will never allow the current system to change.
    The way it is now, they are working for permanent power.

    Sauerkraut, I dunno. Think back to the Gore-Bush election. They were all set to do away with it back then. If we had some shrewd conservative in there, it might happen.

    Did you know that you can drive from my house that teeters on the edge of the Atlantic, all the way to the Pacific ocean in California and never drive through a blue county?

    You can also drive from the Texas coast on the Gulf of Mexico all the way to Canada and never drive through a county Obama won.

    If you choose to only drive in Obama land, and never drive in Romney land all you need is a Chevy Volt, because you can’t get very far…

    I’ll go find that map and link it…

    I think we should go with POPULAR VOTE ONLY! And with ONLY voters will be TAXPAYERS and CITIZENS! If you are on welfare or any other type of taxpayer funded system YOU DON’T VOTE.

    The whole system is corrupt. The millions of filthy city dwelling freeloaders throw everything off ballance.
    But this is not anything that a good ol’ civil war wouldn’t fix.

    Look at California…. People think we are a bunch of progfucks out here…when actually California is overwhelmingly conservative. VERY CONSERVATIVE.

    The problem is we have a couple of uber-rich one-percent elitist dumbass bitches as senators….and a whole bunch of faggots in SF and LA.

    When Obuttpirate collapses the union….California will have it’s own little civil war….

    Hope and change baby….

    grayscape, I don’t think the civil war will happen here because of all the people leaving the state. It will be fascinating though when this place runs out of other peoples money. The Bullshit thats flowing out of these Hispanic elected officials now that they have a super majority is scarey then hell though. That might touch something off.

    @Brad, you’re cracking me up….sauerkraut.

    Its kind of like camapign reform, whenever the party in charge gets in power, its swept under the rug if it was to their advantage.
    I do think it does need to be revisitied so “everyone has an equal voice”, but that might’ve meant Gore would’ve been president instead of Bush, and imagine the EPA mandates we would’ve been facing…………well, kind of like now.

    These maps highlight Presidential and statewide elections’ vulnerability to strategic, targeted fraud. In states and counties controlled by Democrats, systematic fraud is encouraged and winked at by the press, the executive, and the judiciary. It does not need to be widespread, it only needs to be enough to win. Frankly, I have no assurance that this election was not fixed.

    I have seen this pattern repeated over and over again in Latin America and it has been building steadily here in the US since election “reforms” were enacted decades ago. When I turned 18, I had to show my birth certificate and proof of residency, but that was a long time ago. Motor-voter is a sham.

    It sickens me that the Republican Party refuses to act aggressively in protecting the electoral process. Even here in Utah, Mia Love’s campaign refused to contest a very, very tight election. The Democratic Party was very active in GOTV activities here in my area and judging by their past actions here, I think it would have been prudent to have reviewed the vote and the registration rolls, even at the risk of being wrong.

    I remember learning about how Nixon, in an act of patriotism, refused to contest his loss to Kennedy despite obvious fraud in Texas and Illinois, in order to maintain stability in the nation. Unfortunately, that act planted the seed of our destruction. It only emboldened the Democrats to double down in committing electoral fraud, and it established a precedent that has been followed ever since by the Republican Party — that it is better to roll over than to fight.

    I feel strongly that if we are to avoid a Dictocracia (A dictatorship brought to power democratically. I guess that would be dictocracy in English, but it really doesn’t translate with the same force.), we cannot rely on the Republican Party to save us. The progressives are playing for keeps and the “way things are done” is no longer relevant. We are going to have to think and act outside the box in order to save our country. I hope I am wrong, I hope I am just paranoid, but I have seen this script played out before and it isn’t pretty.

    (I did not support Mia Love. I think she is a fine lady and very enthusiastic, but she is a blind ideologue and lacks political maturity. Despite that, I did ultimately vote for her in State Convention against a strong but surprisingly inept opponent who blundered spectacularly at the last moment; and when it came to crunch time in the polling booth, I just couldn’t bring myself to vote for Matheson.)
