Mark, I do hope that Ms. Lori regularly reads your seti posts that pertain to her and that pertain to other women. I would hate for Ms. Lori to be ignorant of your feelings in all areas. I would be happy to send her links to your posts.

Well, since you asked - changed to eliminate the electoral college altogether, with spending caps in place for ALL political races from school board all the way up to President of these United States.

In fact Gary, since you have made me queen of the country for a day, I think I would like to see government funded elections. (GASP!!!) Now wait a minute, hear me out... Government funded elections would eliminate spending by special interest groups and SIMULTANEOUSLY put a cap on spending for all candidates. It might also result in more candidates who are not independently wealthy seeking public office.

And before I get off of my queenly throne, let's make election days federal holidays to help equalize the ease of voting across citizens.

Gary, regarding your "crazy alternative", what makes you think that special interests would not spend, spend, spend to get "their" people into the electoral college? Sounds like a really good way to end up with 535 corrupt people to me.

San Jose is not too far from us at all. We can easily meet folks down there for a meet if Miz Julie has some free weekend time... Eric's schedule permitting and the health of my mother, who is terminally ill, also permitting.

The president is indirectly elected by the people through the Electoral College.

Problem No.1


True, and a national embarrassment if the popular vote is not consistent with the Electoral College. This system harkens back to our love of states rights and personally, I would like to see it changed... but Problem No. 1??? I think not.

You guys don't get a choice, one bolshie State Governor and you all do as you are told. Heck, even "has been" film stars will do at a pinch.

Nonsense!!! In addition to the senators and representatives who represent us in the federal government, we have a state legislature made up of elected representatives. We also have a judiciary branch at the state level. And please do not forget that people elect the governor and can just as easily elect somebody else the next time around. On top of that, counties and cities have local governments to deal with local issues.

Chris, I assure you that there is nothing "fief-ish" about the way we rule ourselves!!!

Sure we have had some "has been" film stars govern our state. One even went on to become president. I always say that in a democracy, the people get the government they deserve. Sometimes the people make silly choices, but they are our choices to make and the people have the ability to change things up, should they grow wiser.

So please stop insulting our form of government or I shall have to point out that you people still have a "House of Lords".

I do declare Chris, you bring out the jingoist in me... and given my political leanings that is not an easy thing for people to do!!!

Actually it is statements like this one that make me laugh:

...America is NOT the UNITED States it brags about and hasn't been for centuries. They are just a disparate collection of fiefdoms and Lords of the Manor which we gave up in the Middle ages. But you have to understand that a country as large as theirs simply cannot be controlled by a single central government like ours is. It has to be devolved, but in so doing they lose control over it. The entire UK could fit into the state of Texas nearly 3 times.

Lovely country geography wise, lovely people, crap political system, duff culture.


I have never seen my country as a collection of fiefdoms and Lords of the Manor. We just happen to be a country with a history of states rights, because what works for Iowa may not be right for... say, New Mexico.

I will admit that you will find some conflicting laws. For example, unless posted otherwise, I can turn right on a red light out here in California. (Now other states have something to be jealous of besides our sunny weather.) But Chris should know that we have federal laws that cover the "big stuff".

Sure we are currently immersed in what the media loves to call the "culture wars", but come on!!! Our country survived a civil war. Our current "culture wars" are NOTHING compared that.

To quote our president, "The state of our union is strong."

Simple answer, stick two fingers up and ban all imports of goods from those states. When it REALLY hits their pockets then they will learn. Want to give me a list of these States? I'll write to their Governors quite happily. Any reply I get will be sent to the British national press.


LOL Chris!!! No poisoned pen letters are needed. Farmers in other states have a simple choice - sell their eggs to our very populous state by complying with our new law, or don't. There is no egg shortage here, just higher prices.

You have such a draconian view of our country!!! I have traveled extensively in my country and I have never encountered the animosity that you so frequently post about. I assure you that our states are quite united.

I think Facebook is one of the most god awful things ever invented in the modern world, it will go down in history as infamous as the black plague.


Let's see... a pandemic that resulted in the deaths of 100 million people, or Facebook...

Sorry Chris, but I must side with Facebook on this one.
