    I’m amazed that they are trying this again!
    What I don’t understand is the weighting to votes to each state. Why do some states have a weight of 27 whilst others have 4?
    All this was exposed in Michael Moore’s “Stupid White Men”.

    I didn’t know they tried this before… But then I only watched Michael Moore’s “Farenheit 911” and “Bowling for Columbine” for the very first time a few weeks ago.
    I wouldn’t even begin to attempt to explain the logic of the electoral college system.

    florida did this sneaky thing of reducing the number of folks allowed to vote by removing all names that were ‘similar’ to convicted felons who were not allowed to vote. then removing some who were related. various tactics were used to remove a whole chunk of society – amazing that majority were african-american most likely to vote anti-bush! not cynical me… nooooo
