The swing states get so much attention and say so in the election and the future of our country,
Even the big states that have a long history of leaning one way don't even get paid much attention because the candidates figure it would be a waste of resources.


swing states are important. they're how america should be. 
so it makes sense to pay more attention to them. 

should we pay attention to people who always vote one way? 
i don't see why. other than energizing the base. 


Swing states are important bc the electoral college and political strategy makes them important,
It makes the candidates cater to a certain bloc of voters and basically dismiss the rest of the country,
Hmmm I see no case for retaining the current system

This is true but it's not up to some old dead white men to protect the ppl from themselves and running their country how they seem fit.

What would be wrong about the popular vote?
Probably give the president a lot more power too

and i still think one of the major reasons for the way the constituiton addresses voting was due to the individual states wanting to maintaining a certain degree of independence and control.

because americans are dumb as f*ck. 
even though the electoral college usually agrees w/ them. i certainly don't want it in their hands. 

those people are important. people who swing their vote one way or the other are important.
if i'm a politician, i wouldn't pander to people who always vote the same way. fo wat?
