While I agree with you on the rest of what you said, do you understand what would happen if an electoral vote was casted for the wrong candidate? Imagine the FL scandal, but 10x worse. The media would have a field-day with it.




If gore won the popular vote, but lost in the electoral college, doesn't that mean that some person in the electoral college voted against the will of his or her state?




No, it means that while Gore won the popular vote by a slim margin, the states that Bush won had a discrepancy between population and number of electoral votes.

We need to change to a complete proportional system.

Nope, not at all. It didn't happen.

Misleading post title. Congress is not seeking to repeal presidential term limits to allow Bush to seek third term.

Heh we'll just have to wait and see. I really don't think Congress will come along and just plop down an amendment to allow a third term. I do however think that under the guise of national security they will seek to extend his current term.

I really don't see why. 'They' get their pick of the next president.

Haha we could keep this up all day. I'm not a psychic, I don't know for sure. I do think that something like that will happen but since I'm not sure I'm not willing to bet on it.

It is an idiot sponsored bill... if anything, they should be trying to put term limits on members of congress, not taking away term limits from the office of president.




definately, and the supreme court also, im sick of this term for life bullshit, why should we be stuck with the assholes of yesterday today? i think noone in any political position should hold that position for any more than 4 years.
