    mander is done to give the loser of the popular vote a win then it takes away the one person-one vote ideal. We should be working towards the ideal and not kissing the asses of those who are less in voting strength. Else why not reduce it to giving the smallest minorities the power to take the elections through gamesmanship.

    How would Americans reacted to not only vote blocking games if added to a majority vote losing to the nuttiest most fringe groups. I would hope they would fight it tooth and nail. I know that there are many who find the average voter to be apathetic and stupid but I really trust those who don't have other personal issues or a need to feed on others. If only a percentage of the PBO lead fought it the republicans would dig the hole they are in deeper. The national opinion of republicans amongst urban and younger people is already pretty low and this stunt would gain them little that could not be undone... So it is a stupid stopgap repsonde to thier crappy ideas losing followers.

    It is like Jindel wanting to get rid of thier state income tax and raise the sales tax on the poor... Does Dumbo think that he can block the poors vote? In fact, I am going to start calling regressive republicans Dumbo in honor of the elephant symbol. Dumbo wants to rig the economy to benefit the richest yet that will kill the economy because people who barely survive would not be buying much and even middle class people would change how they spend. Dumbos!
