Next, the Electoral College is the grandest FAILING of our political system. I did not vote for Obama. In fact, the district in which I reside overwhelmingly voted for Romney. However, the entirety of Ohio's Electoral College votes went to Obama. So, who was disenfranchised??? The votes of my district did not count toward the election.

The last one foundered on internal opposition so they are getting more cnning by removing the link to congressional districts - defusing that previous problem.
the plan remains the same - "red" states will give all their electoral college votes to a single candidate, but "blue" states will be forced to split their vote so that the "red" candidate will get a subsdtantive portion of the electoral college votes from them.
All you anti-obamaites are worried about Obama's non-existent plans to sieze guns, sociailise medicine, and other fantasies should pay real attention to this -THIS is how your vote will be made meaningless - and it is not a fantasy!
If you think that both parties are the same, both controlled by the NWO, etc - think again - only 1 of them is ACTUALLY proposing anything that will disenfranchise you.
sorry about that.
Obama will be gone in 2016 - but the GOP's attempts to rule the country by fiat continue.
