Re: “Why does the United States consider Cuba an enemy?

The National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states (and DC).

Every vote, everywhere, would be politically relevant and equal in presidential elections. No more distorting and divisive red and blue state maps pre-determining the outcome. There would no longer be a handful of 'battleground' states where voters and policies are more important than those of the voters in 80% of the states that now are just 'spectators' and ignored after the conventions.

When the bill is enacted by states with a majority of the electoral votes– enough electoral votes to elect a President (270 of 538), all the electoral votes from the enacting states would be awarded to the presidential candidate who receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and DC.

The presidential election system that we have today was not designed, anticipated, or favored by the Founders but, instead, is the product of decades of evolutionary change precipitated by the emergence of political parties and enactment by 48 states of winner-take-all laws, not mentioned, much less endorsed, in the Constitution.

The bill uses the power given to each state by the Founders in the Constitution to change how they award their electoral votes for President. States can, and frequently have, changed their method of awarding electoral votes over the years. Historically, virtually all of the major changes in the method of electing the President, including ending the requirement that only men who owned substantial property could vote and 48 current state-by-state winner-take-all laws, have come about by state legislative action.

In Gallup polls since 1944, only about 20% of the public has supported the current system of awarding all of a state's electoral votes to the presidential candidate who receives the most votes in each separate state (with about 70% opposed and about 10% undecided).
Support for a national popular vote is strong among Republicans, Democrats, and Independent voters, as well as every demographic group in virtually every state surveyed in recent polls in recent or past closely divided Battleground states: CO – 68%, FL – 78%, IA 75%, MI – 73%, MO – 70%, NH – 69%, NV – 72%, NM– 76%, NC – 74%, OH – 70%, PA – 78%, VA – 74%, and WI – 71%; in Small states (3 to 5 electoral votes): AK – 70%, DC – 76%, DE – 75%, ID – 77%, ME – 77%, MT – 72%, NE 74%, NH – 69%, NV – 72%, NM – 76%, OK – 81%, RI – 74%, SD – 71%, UT – 70%, VT – 75%, WV – 81%, and WY – 69%; in Southern and Border states: AR – 80%, KY- 80%, MS – 77%, MO – 70%, NC – 74%, OK – 81%, SC – 71%, TN – 83%, VA – 74%, and WV – 81%; and in other states polled: AZ – 67%, CA – 70%, CT – 74%, MA – 73%, MN – 75%, NY – 79%, OR – 76%, and WA – 77%.
Americans believe that the candidate who receives the most votes should win.

The bill has passed 32 state legislative chambers in 21 rural, small, medium, and large states with 243 electoral votes. The bill has been enacted by 10 jurisdictions with 136 electoral votes – 50.4% of the 270 necessary to go into effect.

My report follows on unjust wars and worthless battles for a country not worth defending: the United States of America, a nation w/o conscience and a people w/o heart who are cursed with a national character predominantly w/o soul.

My report on madness and reason:

For surely reason has no role in the mass murder, torture, forced suicide, imprisonment and assassinations of our brothers and sisters that occur 24/7 in our world at the direction of our officials.

Finally, the united states of america is now forever known as the BEAST, the BrainEntrAinmentSTate, a country w/o conscience, a people w/o heart who are cursed with a national character predominantly w/o soul :

Re: “How many civilians has the U.S. killed in the War On Terror™?

We assume the enemy to be these suicidal maniacs that cut peoples heads off cause that`s what the main stream news tells us.It`s essential for us to believe that.there are two sides to a coin and amaricans see one side.The more innocent lives will kill the more we create these so called suicidal maniacs.If our country was attacked and experienced a fraction of the hell we have inflicted in the middle east we`d have some suicidal maniacs here too.This war is`nt about freedom and terrorists it`s about oil and greed,it`s about enslaving Americans a little more and giving more power to our government.9/11 was an inside job.

Re: “How many civilians has the U.S. killed in the War On Terror™?

Please people, refrain from ignorant patriotic comments. A true patriot will stand for the values of the US constitution. However, you must ask yourself how "patriotic" our government actually is. Before you get on here and start firing away with your ignorant opinions about "terrorists" such as al qaida and the Taliban, or what the united states true reasons for war in the middle east, you must form an educated opinion. I urge everyone to research how al qaida began, who funds them, what our military and financial strategy is of erecting US military bases all over the world, and how all of this relates to Russia. Do not form your opinion based on mainstream media. Read the actual legislative material being passed in congress, read the history of our ties with these countries, and read current UN sanctions. Do not be satisfied by mainstreams interpretation of what is going on. Until you do these things, your opinions have actually been manufactured for you.

My understanding of history is based on HISTORY while yours is based on nuance upon nuance and political philosophy, and viewed through a prism of class and race consciousness.

Rick Sanctimorum has a similar problem relating to the world but from a different angle. You and he are actually quite similar in your slavish devotion to ideology over reality.

Re: “How many civilians has the U.S. killed in the War On Terror™?

"Never have I stated that. I am just saying all the hand wringing over civilian deaths is misplaced."

because they are filthy terrorist sympathizers who deserve their horrible explosive deaths at the hands of an uncaring foreign government

unlike all the brave american soldiers who have been unjustly killed by brown scum fighting noble wars overseas

"I am not a Christian. never have been. Also, if we had followed Christ's beliefs as you understand them, the world would today be ruled by Nazis and samurai."

nazis and samurai lol

your entire worldview is ruled by what you've drunkenly absorbed from the history channel, and that is an endemic sadness of braindead american society

I am not a Christian. never have been. Also, if we had followed Christ's beliefs as you understand them, the world would today be ruled by Nazis and samurai. Turn the other cheek, right?

In all seriousness though, I don't understand how anyone can call themselves a good Christian and then go against the very essence of Christ's beliefs.
The killing of innocents is a sin, justifying it is unchristian. Don't take my word for it, listen to the Pope.

The appeal to logic and morality seems not to work for some, perhaps the appeal to religion will.

(Oh I forgot I'm in the South where fundamentalism is as rampant as it is in Lahore....carry on with your cynical misreadings of scripture.)

"I weep for any innocents lost, anywhere."

You clearly do not; you simply deny that civilians are being killed as you have consistently done in most every post on this subject. And if that doesn't work, you try to fudge the meaning of the word "innocent". This is not a credible line of reasoning.

yeah, god forbid the heathen pakistanis decide that they can carelessly kill our children with invisible missiles from heaven. that would just be horrible, if we lived in constant fear of indiscriminate death from a heartless jingoist foreign government scumming fear-ridden votes from mouthbreathing psychopaths overseas

Re: “How many civilians has the U.S. killed in the War On Terror™?

"So militant Islamists target innocent civilians and I go after their leaders with targeted (not indiscriminate, bloodgimp) drone strikes and I'm the terrorist."

ahh willful ignorance is such an easy way to live life

it's just too damn bad that some of us have the courage to admit that not all of our 'targeted strikes' are all that carefully targeted

but if you automatically think that every pakistani is suspicious, then it turns out every child killed by a missile is a 'suspected militant'! it's like magic!

I get news from from multiple POV. Fox is just one. NPR and Drudge are my mainline. Why does everyone try to hang FoxNews around my neck? Home of Shepherd Smith and Bill O'Really. Yechh!
