    Obama and his goons have some things going to give power to their side. Like bring in more voters and infiltrate the red states.
    George W. was the first elected president to win without getting the popular vote.
    It isn't just one side here. We the people are in a war with our own country and most don't even realize it.

    I don't think the elections are all that rigged, other than it's REALLY hard for a 3rd party to participate on equal footing with the big two.

    Obama appointed 3 people to the FCC who just TOOK the property of the cable and phone companies.

    They weren't elected.

    Not just the FCC, but the FTC, the FEC, the IRS, and so on.

    I don't think W was the first to not get the popular vote.

    But the popular vote hasn't ever been how presidents have been elected. We could just make up rules so our favored candidates win, no matter what, eh?

    Even more so not sure the electoral college is a system that should be used any longer. Way out of date. they have the ability to get the count correct and quickly.
    Maybe that will be their reasoning for a micro chip? Just joking....

    The point of the electoral college is so NY, Florida, Texas, and California don't combine to elect the president, no matter how people in the other states vote.

    But when have NY ,Texas, California, and Florida ever agreed on anything? If we could get them all to work together on something it would be a truly historic event. Maybe as good as the WWII movement? Again i am Joking...Kind of?

    All those states voted for Reagan for sure. I think GHW and Clinton, too.

    Fact checked myself. Dukakis won NY against GHW. Clinton didn't win Texas in 1996.

    The point stands though.

    Without the electoral college, the candidates wouldn't bother campaigning in Wyoming or Nevada or Oregon...

    Yeah. I think everyone was ready for Carter to be gone. Reagan had it easy.
    Obama almost had all of them also. People were really ready for W to leave.

    This is 2008. McCain didn't have a chance

    If he were all about the politics, W would have chosen a VP candidate in 2004 who could have run for president in 2008. That he didn't was quite remarkable, if you're willing to give credit where credit is due. He wanted a fair fight, no incumbent.

    This is why I think the GOP will easily win next election if they put forth a halfway competent candidate. Obama has really fucked up the neutral voter's confidence on the Democratic Party. It shows with how the republicans took congress

    Or, Cheney had him by the balls and wouldn't let go, and/or W just didn't give a shit.

    If Cheney had something on him, Scooter Libbey would have a pardon.

    Any other wild guesses?

    Gore never won the electoral college by any vote. The court got it right.
