No the electoral college is in place because it has been believed that the American public could too easily be duped into electing somebody who is grossly inexperienced just out of straight popularity....oh..wait...

I'd vote for Mos, but I already voted for Obama. Yea, I'm a racist - I'm only voting for black people this year.

May The Force be with us all.

how could america produce "better cars," etc. when you don't coddle the corporations? a flat tax fucks these organizations in the proverbial ass.

Mos Def should be president! It would be a great improvement over either one of these knuckle heads that are running now!

You mean no one has commented in a few hours? That's awesome. Everyone must be out voting. I voted, and it was awesome. Sure, I may have smelled like stout and nuggets, but at least I was able to vote. Now, tune in Stephanopolois (sp?) He can't run for president because ain't no one who can spell his name. Aweseome.

How does he plan on all these programs such as the "Free breakfast" initiative, while at the same time installing a flat tax rate??
