I don't think this has ANYTHING to do with hunkering down for doomsday-
if he gets re-elected, it will be doomsday (IMO).
He's just campaigning and playing the political BS game to get elected.
Our electoral process desperately needs a REVAMP ASAP.
I mean, COME THE F* ON...
A population of ~3 million,
LESS THAN 1% OF THE TOTAL AMERICAN POPULATION.
And it is not representative of America as a whole- Iowa is very homogenous regarding political/socio-econ issues. Not saying it's good/bad/otherwise,
just saying that they are not an appropriate/reasonable sample group to be representing the American people overall.
(...and it's usually the state I forget when reciting the 50...that or Montana lol...)
Am I the only one who thinks it's absolute absurdity that Iowa has been given so much power over primary elections?
I don't think any one state should have this kind of influence!
But if it's unavoidable, let's at least have the more diverse/more populated states playing that role.
I mean, SERIOUSLY.
And New Hampshire is even more ridiculous:
42nd/50 with a population of 1,316,470.
That's 0.42% of our total pop.
Oh wait, I forgot...
the America I knew and loved and believed in is now a circus - and not a Cirque du Soleil kinda circus...
even the French get SOMETHING right now and then...
- But a freakshow, BS, pissing-contest of a country,
where we choose our candidates based on what IOWA and NEW HAMPSHIRE say.
*pffft....Even DELAWARE laughs at New Hampshire*
