    Do you take drugs to be this stupid or are you naturally so?

    California originally used the Federal formula for government with the Legislature representation based on population and the Senate given 2 seats per county. The Senate was later changed to representation based on population and with that change went any chance for balance of power. We now have one party control of both the Senate and the Legislature which has been the case for years. Just Look at the mess the State is in.

    I have been working from home at our ranch in Montana since March. We had our mail forwarded up here. The Orange County registrar of voters sent me a card seeking to verify whether I changed my address. I was going to return it saying no, but I’m thinking of registering to vote in Montana. My wife already has. My Republican vote does not count in CA and I don’t even get a Republican option in some cases. Here in MT, Republican Senator Steve Danes is in a tight race with Democrat Governor Bullock to defend his Senate seat. My vote would matter here in MT.

    I sent a donation to help Danes out. I also sent a donation to 'Super' Joe Collins to help remove Mad Maxine Waters.

    It is remarkable how stupid you are and you do not realize it. That is scary and dangerous.

    Well, and because they hate the idea of people with unalienable rights who they can't control.

    As for Bartner... he's just doing a drive-by. It's an inadequacy thing. Happens whenever he gets a look at himself in the mirror without clothes.

    Here is what you libs don’t understand about the country that protects you from harm and gives you the highest standard of living on the earth: America was designed to change very very slowly. Imagine a gigantic aircraft carrier, wonderfully designed and built, being nudged by the tiniest tugboat.

    The electoral college insures( or assures) that change will be very incremental. That is a good thing, a very good thing, Crazy assed leftist ideas ( and there are a damn shload of them nowadays) struggle to gain traction so 90% of them die on the vine. Good ideas will have a chance, but crazy fades away.

    I would like to see electoral colleges established at state level. California is dominated by its coastal cities. In Oregon, Portland controls the whole state. In Nevada, voters in only two counties, Clark and Washoe, decide who sits in the state house and who represents the state in the US Senate. If these states had electoral colleges, voters in Glenn County, Calif., Klamath County, Ore. and Nye County, Nev. would have a bigger say in who runs their states.

    The whole reason why the electoral college was formed so that there was equal representation and smaller populations would not get bulldozed by large population areas. In these places and in WA state (King County) they get whatever they want and everyone else in the state pays for it. The people on the west side and counties south of Seattle really have no say. In our country the dems want control desperately and feel that like in the age of King Arthur..."Might makes right". It is essentially a mob mentality.

    We like the electoral college because we revere liberty and despise tyranny. We despise all forms of tyranny, whether it's tyranny of the executive branch, tyranny of the legislative branch or tyranny of the masses. Our rights, the Bill of Rights and natural rights mean more than what any person or group desires to impose on others.

    California originally followed the Federal government with the Legislature based on population and the Senate given two seats per county. The Senate was later changed by a court case to be based on population like the Legislature. That eliminated any chance for balance in power which resulted in the current mess in California.

    The leftists are always trying to figure out a way to increase their power while cheating Americans. Check out this recent article from the Leftist “The Atlantic” rag:
