I don't know why we have the electoral college system. Why don't we just go to a popular vote? If more people want someone, then they're the better candidate. That's how a democracy works. How could a hundred thousand lemmings be wrong? We need to stop spending time fiddling around with states rights and make sure the federal government is the government of the people.

Cute. I wonder if they have one explaining the primaries. I admit it was mid February before I really understood what super-delegates were.
