Electoral College...Bitches, why your vote doesn't count...

THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL BLOG. THOSE OF YOU WHO THINK SO MOVE ALONG UNLESS YOU WANT TO HAVE A LAUGH HERE AND THERE OR HEAR ABOUT DIPSHITS I COME INTO CONTACT WITH AND MY FAMILY.

The government has been feeding you lies for years, and it is a damn shame. It is called the Electoral College bitches, and its why your vote doesn't count. The whole voting process in my state and more than likely yours, is a scam. A damn lie. I read this on the government archives, go take a look. I will not vote until every vote counts for itself. It is a load of bullshit. I know I may ruffle some feathers and if you know me I don't give a crap. Tell me I am wrong, and then PROVE IT.

Seriously folks, there has been a woman who ran for Vice-President and an African American man who won. Women can vote, choose their choice of birth control, hold jobs, etc. Men can choose the job of their choice and their home if their income affords. This is a supposed Democracy, not Communism. America has come a long way for political freedom, why keep fucking it up?

So you go out and vote, I mean it is tallied and all but what really happens to your vote? Don't know? You think that your measly vote can help your candidate? YOU ARE DEAD ASS WRONG. It is all up to the Electoral College and according to the government archives there is no Constitutional provision or Federal Law that requires Electors to vote according to the results of the popular vote in their State. Want to know who chooses the Electoral College? Simple, the political parties. So when your Electoral College person, whom you did not vote and choose by the way, cast their votes the majority of the Electoral College's votes  of that State gets ALL the state's votes, except Nebraska and Maine- where they are a little more fair, the state winner receives two electors and the winner of each congressional district gets one. But do you still see how this is bullshit?

Let's dumb this down. We will go with 4 states to make it simple. I know I am blowing your damn mind as it is. They teach you this in High School, but let's face it you could have given two fucks about this then. Let's say there are 100 votes total and Obama gets the majority but Romney gets the most in 3 states. (this in no way chooses who I think should win, I do not vote therefore I do not voice my opinion, I just out dipshits)

State 1: Obama 43: Romney 5
State 2: Obama 15 : Romney 17
State 3: Obama 8: Romney 9
State 4: Obama 1: Romney 2

Obama total votes: 67  Romney total votes: 33

Looks like you can figure out who wins, right?
Look closer... all those people who voted for Obama, but he didn't make the majority so they DO NOT COUNT. If the electors vote according to the popular vote, which as I stated before some do not have to, but most do then the 24 votes Obama received do not count for shit. Even though Romney only had 33 total votes he still wins, unless the  Electoral College isn't required to vote by the majority, which most do, then it's whatever stupid plan that THEY, not you choose.

Do you see that if this happens over and over again that all the votes that Obama gets, which would be more than Romney, do not count? There is no 804 people votes for Obama and 396 voted for Romney so Obama wins. Seriously, go look it up.

This is corrupt, and it just goes to show your vote really doesn't matter your guy could win big in a few states and loose by a few in others, even if he has more overall it doesn't matter. Government is corrupt but this takes the cake, in my opinion this is the biggest crock of bullshit the government has ever fed us.

 Good Luck out there and send cookies and wine to the Electoral College, oh wait you don't know who they are because they are not required to have their name on the ballot. Whoopsies. Do you want to know who is using your vote? Do you want your vote to count? Write any political official you can and change this. This is not democracy, it is the parties buying their way to a win. End of Story.

All info was taken from the Federal Governments archives, read here. Click around a little, get pissed write a letter and maybe shit will change...Until then, at least you are in the know.

  1. Yeah, I have always thought this was dumb. I still vote, but I don't think it counts. It just buys me the opportunity to bitch.

  2. My husband and I were just talking about this last night. I HAVE to vote because SOMEONE needs to cancel his vote out, but I agree that our system is not what I call a democracy. My husband says there's nothing wrong with the system, everyone knows what it is and it's always been like this. I say just because it's been like this doesn't make it right, it doesn't work because it isn't fair. We had this same conversation 4 years ago. I have it on the calendar for 4 years from now as well...sigh...

  3. Thank you for ranting! I have a little tantrum every time we have an election because of the stupid electoral college. Just because it worked for a couple of hundred years doesn't mean that we need to keep using it forever and ever! I will go vote, but my guy always loses, so I wonder if I would be doing more of my patriotic duty by hiding under my bed. It's nice and warm and dark there.

  5. Anyone who was alive and not living under a rock nows this from the Gore/Bush election. Where Gore won the popular vote and Bush won the electoral college and became president. I too believe the system needs to be revamped, but we all still need to get out and vote. Your local elections are important too and these are decided upon by the popular vote.

    1. I wish the presidential elections were the same as local. Maybe one day it will change, I thought it would after the Bush/Gore but it didn't. I lost faith in elections after that

  6. I've still never heard a convincing argument as to why it's done that way...

  7. I know, this is moronic. I'm from Nebraska and appreciate that we at least split our votes. But we have so few that no one cares. The presidential candidates don't make a campaign stop in the Cornhusker state for a reason. I voted today but know that in the scheme of things it doesn't mean anything. Other then I got an awesome sticker.

  8. The Artist and I were discussing this with the Tinys a few days ago. It came up in conversation because when we, as a family, voted where to get supper, though Taco Bell had more votes, it was shot down and Arby's won due to the "parental votes" from The Artist and I which count as more. So we found ourselves explaining why that's fair to the kiddos and comparing it to the Electoral nonsense. Tiny Artist, our youngest, called us commies.

  10. And how is it that Ohio has more electoral votes than Texas?? If the number is supposedly based on population, I'm pretty sure Ohio is NOT bigger than Texas.

  11. This is also the reason opposing presidential and vice presidential candidates can be elected to serve together.

  12. well thank you for describing this in normal people terms! I knew about the electoral college but I was under the impression that your states votes go in and they vote for whomever has the most votes from your state apparently I was wrong. I voted for the first time this year and now I realize it didnt mean JACK SHIT! I will not be doing that mess again and damn it now I will possibly have jury duty because i did my civil duty FUCK!
