I do indeed know how elections work. thank you for the attempted insult.

Wasn't an attempted insult no disrespect intended.

The electoral college is the definitive vote. Yes, they're generally supposed to vote as the majority of the state they represent does, but that doesn't always happen
#7 - jakeinthebox (08/27/2013) [-]
Our electoral system as a whole needs a revamping. I don't trust a lot of the people to make the right choice (considering there are people that voted against Obama because they felt he was a Muslim extremist, or simply because he's black) so I would rather not have the whole election fall on the opinion of the masses. The electoral college however, is really fucking stupid. It essentially eliminates the need for the candidates to show concern or interest in what smaller states care about. They play it up like they care, but their real interest lies in states like California or Texas.

Going to a popular vote would create a lot of opportunity for abuse. One very partisan state could run up their vote totals and pretty much get away with it. Also, there are different voter registration laws in each of the states, so there would be complaints about fairness. Another issue is that the entire country would probably have to close their polls at the same time, and no vote counting could begin until all the poles were closed across the US. I think the most important thing though, is that if we had a close popular vote, we'd have to count the votes in the entire country again, and again, and again.

I used to think we could just go to a computerized system and that would fix our problems, but since I got screwed out of my vote in the local elections by an idiot democrat poll worker who programmed my card wrong (as well as many other republicans cards), I always insist on a paper ballot.

You obviously don't understand if you think that real interest lies in states like California or Texas. California is almost always Democrat and Texas is almost always Republican. The real fight is in swing states that have that 50/50 makeup of where the votes are going. It's pointless to go after the states with the most votes because they for the most part have selected their allegiance.

There are things that do stink about the electoral college and voting such as the winner take all system that gives third parties zilch chance of ever winning( except for like a state or two that split their electoral votes ).

But one thing to keep in mind is not everyone can be right always. You can't have the president be of such madly different parties every four years or we'd tear this country apart. The system is a lot more complex than that, but it's all a tempering mechanism to allow everyone to be right some of the time. You'll step on some toes and make mistakes, but while seemingly very undemocratic( stepped up republic presence ), it's what keeps everything running at the best possibility.

I think we should have stricter requirements when it comes to voting rights.
#9 - jakeinthebox (08/27/2013) [-]
As do I, although I feel they'd be hard to enforce. People have always voted with a sense of Prejudice. Look at JFK, he was great, but he got a solid number of votes because he was handsome.
User avatar #10 - lordgeneral (08/27/2013) [-]
I think there should be stricter requirements for the right to vote is what I was trying to say.
#19 - yeorey (08/27/2013) [-]
Take it easier there, fascist. If you're upset because the majority votes for predominately Rebloodlican or Democrip, don't make it worse than what it is. The Rebloodlicans have been pushing legislation for the last election that makes it hard for minorities and poor people in general to vote (voter IDs). In most southern states, the legislation passed. If you want people to vote one way or another, don't give government another excuse to use force and coercion to deprive a person's rights. A better way is to persuade individuals so it doesn't ruin it for everyone else.
#11 - jakeinthebox (08/27/2013) [-]
That's kind of what I was implying as well, we need to make sure that the people who are voting are doing so with the right intentions and motives.
User avatar #12 - lordgeneral (08/27/2013) [-]
Indeed. That and we need to insure that their votes matter. It infuriates me that a good 50-53% of votes were for romney yet Obama won.
#13 - jakeinthebox (08/27/2013) [-]
Well actually, at the end of the day, after all the votes were figured, Obama had roughly 3 million more popular votes than Romney. www.politico.com/2012-election/map/#/President/2012/ There's a souce if you're interested.
User avatar #14 - lordgeneral (08/27/2013) [-]
I see. on that I was misinformed then, but accordingly, that does seem to happen quite a lot.
#15 - jakeinthebox (08/27/2013) [-]
No worries, friend. I actually had thought that Romney won the popular vote as well. When they called the election and announced Obama as the winner, Romney was ahead, but I guess after everything settled Obama won on both fronts.

User avatar #36 - samxdaxman (03/03/2013) [-]
Exactly. I also liked how the DLC(in Fallout New Vegas at least) formed a story off of each other, but you didn't need to buy the other DLCs to understand it.
User avatar #31 - roflnaut (03/03/2013) [-]
And their games are horribly bugged, so good luck actually playing the dlc without something breaking the game.
But they were still some of the best games I have played.
User avatar #94 - TheMather (03/03/2013) [-]
It's true that they're bugged, but at least they give you one of the handiest possible auto save feature and easy console access to correct it. It's better with a game with lots of bugs that you can circumvent yourself than a game where you're screwed the moment you encounter one.
User avatar #48 - OminousDemon (03/03/2013) [-]
i haveto agree with you on that
despite there awesomeness when it comes to addons
the actual games are released before they are fully debugged (or even near it in skyrims case)

skyrim for instance when it first came out ud notice alot of textures missing and a bunch of bugs, it all got fixed eventually but still
#42 - Ken M (03/03/2013) [-]
you try coding a 100% bug-free game like fallout or skyrim.....
User avatar #50 - roflnaut (03/03/2013) [-]
I am not asking for a 100% bug free game. I am just asking for them to fix a few blatantly obvious bugs.
For example, in Skyrim, there was a bug where Esbern didn't speak at all. This would be alright, except you wouldn't be able to progress any further into the game without choosing a side in the civil war, as there is a part in the meeting where Esbern is supposed to speak.

Atleast they try their best to get as much of the bugs fixed. I am going through college for game design right now, and one of the biggest things I have learned is that you cna spend years testing your game, and once it is on the market someone will always find new bugs, its unavoidable.
