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...
