Al Gore calls for end to electoral college

Former vice president Al Gore is calling for an end to the Electoral College — the system that cost him the presidency in 2000.

The Republican platform approved this week specifically opposes any change to the Electoral College process, constitutional or otherwise.

Gore said he supported the Electoral College even after the 2000 election, in which he won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College vote by 271-266 to George W. Bush. He has since had a change of heart. More here:

Oh really?  A genius like Al Gore had a "change of heart?"

And there you have it ... a lib in a nutshell (so to speak) ... they don't think with logic and reason ... no need to do any research at all ... just go with your heart.  Right ... never mind the framers of the Constitution ... after all, what did they know?  Besides, that's ancient history, why should we care about it now?

If you ask me, I'll take thinkers like Washington, Madison, and Franklin anytime over the likes of Al Gore and the other Nobel Peace Prize winners "planet savers" ... but that's just me.

If you were wondering why the electoral college exists Mark Levin explains it here in layman's terms in two minutes flat.  I posted it back in May of 2008 but here it is again in case you missed it.
