Cool... 2 birds with one stone... As if Mitt loses, that will also show that your belief in your supernatural being answering your wishes is also incorrect, as we know what you are "wishing" for.

And, even though such a case would "show" your belief(s) misplaced, you will not "see" it, since you view the world through lenses polarized to remove that wavelength (reality).

And, yes, I noticed that once again your arguments have been reduced to quips and critiquing my spelling.

Ha! Nice...

I feel bad for the Old Testament prophets and patriarchs who are burning in Hell, since they had more than one wife, including but not limitted to: Lamech, Abraham, Jacob, Esau, Gideon, Saul, David, Solomon, Rehoboam, Elkanah, Ashur, Abijah, Jehoiada, Moses, Ahab, Ahasuerus, Ashur, Belshazzar, Benhadad, Caleb, Eliphaz, Ezra, Jehoiachin, Jehoram, Jerahmeel, Joash, Machir, Manasseh, Mered, Nahor, Shaharaim, Simeon, and Zedekiah.

They were all covered by the Harrowing of Hell, tradition tells us, although the Bible only covers Jesus getting out of there.

Looks like your homey's on the ropes...what is he doin', the rope-a-dope?

Mittens is surging in Ohio: 50%-R, 47%-D.

In fact, he's been picking up momentum since the 10/3 debate in Denver when America saw nobama's hollow shell revealed.

I would laugh heartily if Mittens won the popular vote, but lost the electoral college. The Republitard rage would be hilarious, as they would likely call for the popular election of the president, something libs have been advocating since before 2000...

That would be awesome.

Have you guys heard about this idea, to find some middle ground between the Electoral College and a truly popular vote?

http://thehill.com/...move-electoral-votes

Basically, this (Democratic) representative wants to amend the Electoral College so that whenever a candidate gets a majority of the pop. vote, he gets 29 electoral votes added to his total.

Kind of interesting, and it could alleviate blatant injustices like in 1876 or 2000. It would also encourage candidates to not just focus on critical swing states. But still, I think that either a move to just a pure popular vote, or going the other direction and having a tightly restricted republican (small "r," nothing to do with the political party) model of tests, education requirements, etc. would be a better way of revamping the system.

Pretty much the same thing could be accomplished if all states moved to a proportional allocation of electoral votes--as opposed to the current "winner take all" system. The electoral college votes wold then mirror (at least much more closely) the popular vote.

Many are moving this way in the US... Had a big duscussion on this on NPR last week... Apparently, this is already law in some states, even California, BUT only if the majority of states do the same... So, it will not happen in California this election, or, until it is addopted by a mojority of states.

Good luck finding anything that 67% of the House, 67% of the Senate, and 75% of the states will agree to.

I think a better approach is this one:
http://en.wikipedia.org/...e_Interstate_Compact

Basically, participating states agree to assign ALL of their electoral college votes to the winner of the national popular vote, but to do so only after enough other states have agreed to do the same. How many is enough? Enough that all of the participating states combined will supply the 270 EC votes needed to guarantee a win.

Since 2007, 9 states accounting for 132 EC votes have made this law... halfway to making it happen!

And I agree that red states will suddenly come to appreciate this if Obama wins the EC but loses the popular vote... incidentally this is an outcome that Silver estimates has only a 6% chance of occurring.
