I hope you're all aware that the LA Times is now officially part of the VRWC.
They complain and complain and complain. After today - good riddance to the PESTS til 2006.
"Had 59,388 Ohioans switched from Bush to Kerry..."
Just as Elian Gonzalez made the crucial difference in 2000, Lady Antonia Frazier won it for Bush in 2004!
Someone please call Jesse Jack-asson.
Move on, looosers.
Bush's margin of victory in Ohio was LARGER than Kerry's margin of victory in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan and New Hampshire. If 59,388 (or whatever) voters in each of those states switched to Bush, he would have won in a landslide.
If my aunt had balls, she'd be my uncle.
and, let's see, if 10,000 voters had switched to BUSH in about four other states, the win margin would have been even GREATER..GEEZ!
Oh man, who let them in? Do we have no standards anymore?
I was told that the VRWC was an exclusive club. How can we maintain that ranking if we allow some cheap third class broadsheet to join?
I've always considered Slimes-type rags to be anti-American, but since they're all promoting electoral college elimination, I now consider them subversive.
If only 2,682,160 Kerry voters switched to Bush in 18 states plus the District of Columbia, Bush would have won the electoral college 538-0. This is only about 2.2% of the votes, and fewer votes than Bush received in Ohio alone.
If 50,000 or fewer Kerry voters switched to Bush in each of wisconsin, delaware, hawaii, vermont, maine, oregon and rhode island, Bush would have won 331-207.
If, in addition to that, if 83,000 or fewer Kerry voters switched to Bush in each of Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Michigan, Bush would have won 376-162.
This would have required a mere 455,449 votes.
Had 5,000 voters in NH kept voting for Bush, we don't even need Ohio...
Once again, someone should remind reporters to read the WHOLE Constitution, not just one line in the First Amendment. This is not a democracy and the President is not elected by a direct popular vote. Does Ross Perot own the LAT?
There would have been no travesty - President Bush would NOT have put the country through what algore did.
He would have returned to Crawford quietly, not whined about it.
Nor would he call for abolishing the EC.
Maybe the DUmmies don't realize there are more decent American citizens than they thought.
Yeah, and had I won the lottery, I would not be working today but instead on a monthlong trip to the Alps. And had I been born rich, I would not be stressing out over pennies. And I had I kicked my neighbors butt instead og him kicking mine when I was eight, I would not have had to contend with his bullying till I was eleven. And finally, had I worn boxers yesterday, I would not have skidmarks on the inside of my good pants.
Just felt I should share some of "woulda coulda shoulda" moments from my life ;-)
The LA Times whining. What else is new?
Also, we must all work diligently in the coming months to convince progressives that the Democratic Party has let them down. They must abandon the party. Their only recourse is to join and work for the Green Party moving forward. I may even register as a Green Party member to swell their voter registration rolls. Divide and conquer.
Begin with putting all known progressives in your sphere of influence on the Green Party mail list from their website. Great fun. Start inundating them with information now.
LA Times is trying to save the Party from the lunatics demanding recounts.
If Kerry had won the electoral college and not the popular vote, they would suddenly be praising the E.C. after four years being spent undermining it.
If the Senate ever amends its own rules to eliminate filibusters, the Dems will sing that tune loud and long. As it is, their minority has the Senate by the throat.
