    So Colorado is seeking to tie its Electoral College votes to the winner of the popular vote in presidential elections. No further need for candidates to campaign there, since the popular vote will be tied to states with much larger populations. Eleven states and DC are looking to practically give their votes to California, Florida, New York, and Texas (the four most populated states in America). It's scary what Democrats will do to undermine the Union, or at least disenfranchise more rural states that probably don't vote for them anyway. I'm sorry, but turning our presidential elections into popularity contests isn't going to fix what's wrong with America. https://www.denverpost.com/2019/02/12/colorado-national-popular-vote-bill-electoral-college/

    Manufactured trauma is trauma nevertheless. Get this girl some therapy! And maybe some birth control.

    Changing how we count electoral votes won't give us a system that gives us any better candidates, and it won't stop voter suppression either. The current system isn't perfect, but at least more rural states have a voice. If we just give away votes to the popular candidate, why would anyone campaign in middle America?

    Might's well be hanged for a sheep as for a lamb: Hey LF, you know why your damn racehorses are always winning our big races? They've seen what happened to the sheep. Casey

    I don't see this ending well, and ending sooner than anticipated. Profit motive, and therefore political dogma, easily trump science these days. We can't even get the USA to work toward any real solution, and then there is the rest of the world that also doesn't give a shit. Not optimistic and glad I'm old and childless. Only Keith Richards will be here to worry about the virtual death of our planet in the coming decades.

    Languages have some interesting accidental cross-overs. The Vietnamese term Đồng phục is pretty common, I think it means uniform. The last name in Russian, Cherkov. Our word for a drizzle/fog "mist" means dung in German.
