Probably not, but I think this may be: In terms of Electoral College votes per state resident, each person voting in Wyoming has over 3x the impact of each voter in California.

In TEN OTHER STATES, each voter has at least 2x the impact of a California voter. (refer to my chart on pg2 of thread for detail)

The electoral college is a convoluted way of stating that residents of small states should have more say in who becomes president that residents of large states. What the fuk's up with that?

That's nice for the folks that always seem to what to count in terms of red/blue square footage.

How is that fair?
Because I am that important...........besides, do we really want California telling us what to do for the country?

Hell, we even have a state code of ethics.

Huh. How does the Wyoming "code of ethics" align itself with turning a trout stream into a silt ditch?

About as good as the electoral college seems to be working me thinks...

Ethics and intellect are two different things.

Shit I just wist the two were with in arms reach of each other.
Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need-a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.
-Jerome K. Jerome, 1889
