November 2012 – Another “Stolen” election controversy?


While things are still very much a guessing game at this point, one, very real possibility is rearing its head.

Obama may very well win the popular vote, by 7 million+/- votes. But loose the electoral college. Many of the most populous states- the west coast, massachussetts, new york, and many others are likely Obama wins. But the vast majority of the country, by land mass- not by people, will go Romney. (Yes- the classic red state/blue state map).

So- will we see a repeat of 2000- where a democrat who won concedes? Can such a deeply divided aerica survive this- with both sides crying “foul”.

Many, on both sides (often on the further edges of both parties) have long been calling for the abolition of the electoral college. Will the loosing side remember this? Will the will of the people, a representative democracy, a government “of the people, by the people, for the people” win out? Or will an antiquated system be upheld because it supports the will of a few?

The old chinese curse…. “May you live in interesting times”

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
