    • Well j4goldbull:

      You make a common mistake.

      The USA is a Republic, therefore Democracy of "the masses" is recognized, but more importantly the word of the minority views is accounted for as well.

      Thus the Electoral College system.

      If popular vote was the only way to elect the president, the cities of LA, NY, Chicago, Miami, etc would decide every election.

      And how would that play in Peoria?

      Now well. And the founding fathers knew that and that is why we live in a Republic and not a Democracy.

      Wednesday, Feb. 6 edition

      Super Tuesday is over and things are clearer, at least on the Republican side, but no less goofy than usual. The oddest thing, I've thought, has been this conservative talk show revolt against John McCain. If you missed it, many big-name hosts -- Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter -- have been actively and passionately hating on McCain. Coulter, for one, says she'll actually campaign FOR Hillary Clinton if McCain gets the nomination.

      What's more interesting, though, is how voters have responded. Or rather how they have NOT responded. McCain is blowing away the field, including Mike Huckabee, who is the type of far-right Christian conservative that the conservative talk show world usually loves.

      So what's going on? Has Rush & Co. lost control of the troops? Clearly, yes. Conservative radio was clearly trying show its muscle in what seemed to an orchestrated effort to derail McCain, and yet there he was on Super Tuesday eve, high atop the delegate pile.

      And that's a good thing for this country. A good, good thing. It means perhaps the days of rabid, thoughtless, right-wing hatred are at last waning. Maybe instead of taking orders and cues from the Head Ditto himself, dittoheads are rejecting Limbaugh's bullying ways and beginning to think for themselves.

      If this keeps up, maybe someday they'll stop foaming at the mouth at the sound of the name "Bill Clinton."

    • Yo spliter... Re: lets see how the "popular vote" works this time..

      ... I'd settle for a simple eenie, meenie, minee, mo to settle the whole sham. The whole reason for not going by the popular vote is to control the masses from having the final say. It's your representatives that are appointed as your guardian to think and do as they see fit for you. Doesn't anybody in this country get any of the political scams that have blinded us all since long before we were born, but have been lucky enough to last this long without being completely overtaken by force! A vote for Hillary might prove my point. She's ready to do a little forceful government.... under the guise of.... 'YOUR OWN GOOD'!
