the crux of my campaign-to rid america of rule by 1%:

The Electoral College is the key to the entire analysis and not just an isolated reform.
 
The Electoral College began as a device of the one percent.  Only one percent of the people (at the time of the Civil War) owned slaves.  Through the virtual representation of the Electoral College slaves created votes which their white slave masters cast to determine the highest office of the nation.  Control of the Presidency gave the Slave Power control over the Supreme Court as well.  That’s how Dred Scott got written.
 
The Slaveholder’s Constitution was rigged to put the Slave Power in control.  Slavery got two square miles for every square mile added to free states up to the admission of Texas even though the free states had twice the voters as the slave states.  Texas was admitted as a slave state with five times the expanse of the free states at that time. 
 
The Electoral College reduces the 99% of the people of the United States to the status of slaves as they lack the power over their government.  Through the Electoral College, 538 people (one half of 1% of 1% of the voters) have the right to elect the President while the votes of all the other people are treated as trash.  The Electoral College provides for equality of votes in only one respect.  The votes of the American people are equal only in the sense that our votes are equal to zero.  If we cannot elect our Chief Magistrate we are but slaves.
 
The Electoral College is the means by which the aristocracy elected a Monarch in the Holy Roman Empire.  The Electoral College is not democratic; The Electoral College is not republican; The Electoral College is a relic of feudalism. 
 
The Electoral College is the reason we don’t have universal health care.  The Electoral College is the reason this country is bankrupt.  But the country is not bankrupt.  Only the political system that creates the government that controls it.

    I know this has not been said by a lot of men, but hon i am with you. This is sick bullshit, and it needs to be stopped. Barr 2012 is what we all need to say.

  2. Roseanne as a woman and a mother, we need you to be our voice. We need you to protect our basic rights. I am sick of seeing women bullied into unnecessary c-sections by doctors that pretend to know it all, for the sake of money and not the well being of people. I am tired of formula companies making women think that they cannot do something as basic as breastfeed their child and lying to them about the contents of the synthetic infant milk they sell, all to control our invisible resources. I am disgusted with MEN telling women what they think should be done concerning their reproductive health. I want to hear the truth for once and not convenient lies that allow these criminals to keep the masses stupid. Above all, I just want my child to have a real chance.

    So the Eletoral College will be a lawsuit after July 4th? YAY!

  5. I am not well educated when it comes to politics, nor will I pretend to be. What I do know is that the way things are is not working, it is not for the people, so then the way it is done needs to be changed. I am not American so I cannot vote, but if I could I would vote for you Roseanne. I do not know of all the issues, but I do know I like the way you think. I think it would be a great change to see someone like you in the White House.

  6. The Go Ogle 2012 campaign has a new plan for chair, and that is to combine the position of chair with president.
    That will streamline, down-size and unite the two positions, and transform the L Party to a dynamic team of 1000 consecutively ranked names with plenty of consecutively ranked names as back-ups.
    Through ranked choice consensus voting, we’ll elect an improved and dynamic platform that requires approval from all parties in the five member executive (three prime ministers and two secretaries) who will be elected by the 1000-member team.
    I’m running for US President to promote my plan, and I’d like to ask everyone to consider please voting for your opposite gender, a woman for president/chair. Barr for chair of the national L Party:

  7. it has been written as a lawsuit and will be filed in philadelphia on july 4, 2012

  8. I agree that the electoral collage needs to be looked at. When you look at the delegates from state to state, you realize that voters are being disenfranchised. Texas has 155 delegates. Florida has 50 in the upcoming primary. Not all delegates have the same power. It’s like Greek Mythology. You have layer after layer of rules and powers just to elect one G_d and a bunch of people in Congress.

  9. Total agreement, the electoral college must go.
    One man/woman, One vote.
    And if that vote is negated by the electoral college then I lose my vote.
    And if I lose my vote then I lose my free speech.
    We have never had a “true” President elected “by the people”. No real populace vote for president here.
    But… what will you do Ms Barr, to overcome the electoral college now? Won’t that be a large hurdle for you to overcome? Even if you should secure the most votes, the electoral college of some states can vote otherwise. I am still supporting you hon, but just sayin’.
