An obscene scheme to cheat by rigging the elections
Quote:GOP Eyes New Election Laws

BOSTON (AP) — After back-to-back presidential losses, Republicans in key states want to change the rules to make it easier for them to win.

From Wisconsin to Pennsylvania, GOP officials who control legislatures in states that supported President Barack Obama are considering changing state laws that give the winner of a state’s popular vote all of its Electoral College votes, too. Instead, these officials want Electoral College votes to be divided proportionally, a move that could transform the way the country elects its president.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus endorsed the idea this week, and other Republican leaders support it, too, suggesting that the effort may be gaining momentum. There are other signs that Republican state legislators, governors and veteran political strategists are seriously considering making the shift as the GOP looks to rebound from presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s Electoral College shellacking and the demographic changes that threaten the party’s long-term political prospects.

Good grief az.. what will they try next.. this gives rural areas more power than urban.. in other words.. dirt has more rights than people

Thoughtful responses are the first victims of partisan passions.

I wouldn't mind seeing electoral votes awarded by Congressional district if it were done nationally. There could be some advantages. People in swing Congressional districts in solid red or blue states would get more attention from Presidential campaigns. That could help Democrats running for Congress in key districts.
But, doing it only in blue states would be a total disaster.

It's up to the Dems to stop them. If the Dems let them get away with, who's the fools?

It wouldn't be a bad idea if it was done nationally. Those of us in red states, esp. the cities, wouldn't be at the total mercy of the more RW rural areas.
