@HG: Why are you getting all pissy about this? You want me to comment on the rest of your mistakes? FINE!
At 5:44 of the video there's a pie-chart (mmmm pie!) showing 22% yes vs 78% no as the vote outcome.
If you quibble with 0.09% I`ll smack you, so help me!!!
I SAID: that graphic is false because there`s NO way the entire rest of the USA would ALL vote against you.
MY POINT is that the graphic is full of poo.
YOU started talking about other stuff: "not 51% he said 50%+1" as if THAT makes a difference OR is related to my point? It`s not.
Why should I comment on it further?

Your other point was valid, he`s talking about one thing and not the other. However it`s also "moot" because my point was how he`s NOT talking about the other!
Get it yet?
I said: He`s not talking about X...
You said: Yeah, but he`s not talking about X...

What am I supposed to do? Argue that you`re right?

"It appears "reaading comprehension" has escaped you lately: I was refering to the video throughout my post. I know @AJ is a fine fellow who I usually agree with, obviously HE isn't a libtard, but the guy who made the video clearly IS."

1. I know who you were referring to. I was pointing out that I don`t see this as a liberal / conservative issue and obviously neither does AJ.

2. I make it a point to try to respond to each and every point you make. But you simply ignore most of mine frequently. I gave you 3 counterpoints. You ignored two of them.

@paperduck: happens in Canada a LOT! lolz! And they win with a "Majority" government no less!

Y`all can dislike the EC system, but it does have it`s advantages, as well as disadvantages, duh!

@Squirlz: Exactly, Jefferson was correct. Technically, the old Soviet Union was a republic. Although the rules concerning elections were so strict that the only candidates you could really vote for were chosen by the communist party, it was still technically a republic.
