Fair. It's funny, a whole fuckton of my friends were terrified of things happening yesterday. One of em kept having panic attacks about an abortion clinic getting bombed. I'm trying to figure out how people think that the violent people are on the right, while also being so angry they themselves want to protest. Gettin real sick of their shit.

Maybe I should throw together a UNM student organization. Call it religious maybe. "The Society of Kek."

I don't think your example is very representative. People in any state don't (or at least shouldn't) base their choice for president on things that are local issues to their state. Things that are environmental or geographical, other stuff like that. I don't think that anyone would try to elect a president that is trying to enact nation wide laws for local problems. If that ever has happened, I'd like to see it.
If it's an issue that some people think should be left to the states, and others think should be a federal issue (like gay marrage) then it is resonable for people to base their presidential choice on that. And in that case, a popular vote (or a less winner-take-all system at least) would work just as well at worst, and in my opinion (And many others) it would work better.

Fair enough. Mostly I'm trying to put a little perspective into why it still exists in the modern. Honestly I would argue that state governments lack a lot of the power they should have, an example being Colorado making marijuana legal, but the drug still being federally illegal. I can't point to an immediate example of a recent example of location specific voting, but one factor in the southern states leaving the union was that they almost unilaterally voted against Lincoln and he still won. I suppose a modern paralell would be if the midwest entirely voted against a candidate, while that same candidate still wnet into office. I would imagine that would cause some outrage amongst the people rsponsible for the majority of agricultural production in the country if a candidate that did not represent their interests, and thus their consumer's interests was elected despite their total opposition.

Either way though, I'm just being devil's advocate and trying to provoke thought

The exception proves the rule.
I doubt that even 1% of people that are overweight are due to drugs but for those few of course it's not their fault
#114 - PapaPalpatine (08/15/2016) [-]
They are certainly the exception. It bothers me immensely when people act like it's not their fault becuase losing weight is "hard." Yeah. It is. So is making money, or mastering a skillset, or supporting a family. You have to choose what you value and go for it. The fact that someone is overweight usually means that they value their current lifestyle more than the idea of being thinner. If that's the case, you don't get to bitch about your weight when you haven't chosen to change it. Of course, if you don't bitch and are just comfortable with your body and choices, then you're fine.
