Does Your Vote Matter?


www.businessweek.com

The underlying problems that led to the Presidential election crisis still exist and could stretch on for years.
What has changed is hardly for the better. The country is even more split among politically polarized regions. Republicans dominate "Red" states of the Deep South, much of the Farm Belt, and the Mountain West. Democrats control "Blue" states along the coasts. Meanwhile, the number of swing states has dwindled to 17 or 18 -- effectively disenfranchising millions of voters residing in the "already decided" areas.

To make matters worse, an Electoral College system conceived by the Founders as an insulating mechanism between a landed aristocracy and the masses makes more 2000-style fiascoes distinctly possible. With Democrats and Republicans at parity, either party's candidate could again triumph in the popular vote while losing in the Electoral College. Such an outcome could spawn a crisis of legitimacy, dog the "winner" for the duration of his term, and reinforce doubts about government by the people and for the people. Who loses? Everybody.

Why bother to vote? Your vote doesn't count and never has. The president is not voted into office by popular vote...but by ELECTORAL VOTES! Read up on it at the link provided...
Why go through all this hype leading to the two conventions is a ridiculous waste of time and money. However, withouth all the bashing, bad mouthing, lies and so on...our MSM personalities would have no jobs!
Each side spending millions of dollars to convince those sitting in the Electoral College seats to select him/her? The whole spectacle of selecting our next president is a joke!

a local radio talk host in Baltimore once said: "If your vote counted, they wouldn't let you".

All we know is who the media tells us wins the election
But don't worry. The U.N. has observors here to "watch" this election. The leader of the U.N. group is a Liberian laywer. There job is to watch for depression of votes based on race.
If the numbers are even close, and Obama loses, there will be blood in the streets. I guarantee Martial Law wil be imposed

ALL HAIL Sir BUSH (dictator)
