I'm just guessing but I would venture to say that half of the US population is children.

there is only about 240 million of voting age but I think I get your point. Here is something I wrote yesterday I "think" is on topic with your rant..

There are around 240 million adults of voting age in the USA. 59 million went Obama, 57 million went Romney. So around 124 million people voted "None of the Above" by not participating. So lets end this "will of the people" nonsense. This isn't majority rules, do the math. Presidents are selected by a minority of the population, in this case less than 25% of eligible voters. Think about that for a second... that means that over 75% of Americans will now be ruled by policies they either voted directly against or didn't see any benefit in voting for. I don't really have a point I'm getting at, just seems pretty crazy to me.

I see what you're saying but the people that didn't vote, chose not to vote. They are saying either they don't care and let the chips fall where they may, or, I don't like either so whatever happens, happens. The process is flawed as far as I'm concerned with the parties and electoral votes, but it is the process in place and everybody that votes (general public) are playing by the same rules.

Your choice as a voter is to vote for one of the candidates presented, a write in vote for someone not on the ballot, or not vote at all. But the important thing is, you have a choice.

I completely agree with our words, I didnt vote, as there was no reason to, there wasnt one single person running worthy of my vote. The only candidate I saw worthy of my vote got stone walled and cheated out, to put Romney, the guy everyone already decided they didnt want 4 years ago, into the vote.

Romney is a loser, obama is a loser. Neither has any intent of actually helping the people, they only serve their masters.

This is the same as the old world feudal system, where only the same " noble" bloodlines may command. The country will not take alot more of this, there will be consequences.

You are the popular vote. That's why it didn't matter.

If they got rid of the electoral college vote, then Romney would won.

But, because that will never happen, you are SOL.

Your vote counts for nothing.

Simply put.

I don't back Obama and I don't back Romney.

Like really, who wants to support a rapist?

With Caucasians quickly becoming the minority in this country, I don't see any scenario moving forward where a Republican nominee wins the Presidency... If anything, the vote trends will only get worse moving forward, especially if inner-city voter turnouts steadily rise..

I guess we're a one party system now

i have to say that i thought the best thing to do would be to run the candidate most likely to succeed, what i saw with Mittens was the GOP not actually wanting power this time round and letting the democrats take the fall for the do do that will hit the proverbial over the next couple of years.
Although if that is the case they let the socialists take charge for another 4 years, Greece anyone ?

Nope, he actually lost that vote as well. By two million. Which is actually a small margin considering, what over 104 million voted all together.

While I have always advocated a third and even a fourth party system, I'm starting to lean more towards getting rid of the party system altogether.

I don't see you logic. Are you implying that conservatives are racist? Or that republicans are racist?

You do know that the republicans wanted to free the slaves in the civil war, and the democrats started the KKK right?

My post wasnt meant to cover racism at all... Most conservative voters fit a "specific" demographic and the same can be said about Democratic voters (more minorities vote democratic) so with the minority populations growing in this country its likely that the republican ticket will always be at a disadvantage now..

The choice between Coke or Pepsi? Burger King or McDonalds? A bullet in the left or right foot? I don't see that as much of a choice.

Or do you mean the choice to vote or not? It is "nice" of our masters to allow us the opportunity to vote, though it is a shame that the vote doesn't really matter as all it adds up to is a suggestion to the electoral college.

I think the important thing is that the government only represents a minority of the citizens yet masquerades as though it has some majority backing it.

Republicans and Democrats are by themselves only a small minority of citizens, put together they don't even make up half of the adult population yet they have complete control over the government and the election process.

A small minority of the population rules over the majority of citizens. The minority of citizens in charge may change but the crap they put on all of us sure doesn't. There is no choice, only the illusion.

Thanks for the reply, sorry if I am coming off a bit adversarial.

It is a simple cause and effect relationship. A high percentage of minorities receive government handouts, the dems always wanna give free stuff, the repubs don't.

It is literally the choice between your boss at work, that only pays you for working, and santa clause who gives out free goodies.

That is a pathetic way of deciding who one would vote for IMHO

I wouldn't vote for either, as both are equally pathetic choices. The repubs give "gifts" to the already rich, the dems give "gifts" to those that don't work. Neither deserve to receive any "gifts", as one already has plenty, and the other isn't willing to work for the things they need.

They both broke the economy, by spending money we don't have, and making it perfectly acceptable to be a drain one the working class. The rich don't pay enough to live on, but that's ok, the repubs will just pay for your billion dollar profits by subsidizing your slave waged workforce with food stamps. The dems just want everyone to get free stuff so they feel grateful and reelect them again.

Ok I almost spit my coffee out laughing to hard!


Oh and OP
I am amazed that many people voted! But I think more than half who did vote made the decision...

I hate to disappoint, but Obama won both the popular and electoral vote.

strike my earlier post i imagine around 10 to 20 percent of the people that voted voted more than once. Based upon his strong mail in and absentee votes. so my figures are all wrong.

Hope someone explained that affirmative action does not give minorities a right to vote more than once....

They refuse to vote for two evil candidates. The majority reject the system and don't want karma from participating.

That really invalidates the system.

80 million of them will get representation once they are 18 years old. I know some people think it is unfair, but five year olds still don't get to vote. Maybe they should start a movement for an amendment or something.
