Actually, you are laughing as you say your vote does not matter but the truth is... IT DOESNT!
The Popular vote has never mattered. Al Gore WON the popular vote, did he become President? No he did not. I have no idea why you continue to ignore
FACTS and the thing is none of this is anything new. Let us look at the vote totals from the 2000 election. Al Gore vs George W Bush.
Al Gore (D)
Popular vote total: 50,999,897
percent of popular vote: 48.38
George W Bush (R)
Popular Vote total: 50,456,002
percent of popular vote: 47.87
So maybe you can explain to me how the popular vote mattered in the 2000 election? If the popular vote truly mattered, Al Gore would have been
declared the winner and President elect, but that did not happen. This is a FACT you can not run away from. So feel free to laugh it up, but guess
what? How delegates are awarded based on the popular vote does not matter and NEVER has. If the 2000 election did not teach you that, then there is
no helping you. You are living in a fantasy world. It is for this very reason that MSM's delegate count is completely flawed and inaccurate. The MSM
awards delegates based on the popular vote, which is why you always see the word "projection" on their delegate count listed. It is an assumption,
an estimate, a projection. Which is just another word for a "guess" and silly people like yourself grasp onto these things and pass it off as fact
when the real fact is the count is nothing more than a guess.
Now let us talk about delegates. Delegates are unbound. RNC attorneys pointed out this FACT in 2008 when a Utah delegate refused to cast a vote for
John McCain (who won the State of Utah) at the Republican Convention and instead cast his vote for Mitt Romney (who had already dropped out of the
race). Rule 38 has nothing to do with Ron Paul. It is just the rule, it is part of the process. I certainly did not hear anyone complaining in 2008
when Mitt Romney was the benefactor of this rule which was upheld by the RNC legal counsel.
If you want to actually "debunk" these things, you are facing an uphill battle. If you think the popular vote matters, then let me see you
"debunk" how Al Gore won the popular vote and still not become President. Let me see you "debunk" the Utah Delegate who successfully cast his vote
for Mitt Romney even though John McCain won the State and he was "bound" to vote for McCain. There is nothing to debunk, these things happened. It
would be like trying to "debunk" the fact that water is wet.
