The use of the CVV number for donation transactions is non-existent by the Obama campaign among other suspicious activity.
I never heard of Government Accountability Institute but a simple search for the group yields the fact that they are NOT a non-partisan group.

If there is in fact a problem with team Obama not collecting CVV then the question is it illegal and whether this practice is prevalent in our political system.

Re: 2012 Presidential Election (free for all edition)

One question for everyone -- is there any use for the electoral college anymore? Is there any reason we don't just do the popular vote? I understand the electoral college when we were unable to quickly and efficiently count votes and report the numbers up so getting a majority and giving electoral votes made sense. Now we have the technology and ability to let every vote count evenly. Let a vote for Obama count in Texas, and a vote for Mitt count in New Hampshire. Am I missing why the electoral college is important?

Its so we don't have a few large states picking our president and holding all the power. The electoral college has never been about counting the votes its about giving all states a say in who is elected.

Makes sense to me. Who the hell do you think takes the hit when big business gets hit with higher taxes, higher overhead, higher cost, slow sales, etc... First people hit are employees. That's one reason Mitt has said Obama care will hurt employment which he is correct.

Why does size of a state matter. Shouldn't every person be counted equally?

If you look at population of CA, TX, NY, Fl, IL, they have more population then the other 52 states combined. If you were a politician where would you spend your money and which states would you pass favorable legislation?

If anything we'd see more of a swing. Repubs and democrats don't really have a reason to go to California. It's not like they hit a lot of stops in South Dakota. Wouldn't it be better if more of the resources happen for most of the people? I'll drop it now, just seems silly to me that we don't do the popular vote.
