Moral of the story: the U.S.A. is still a clusterfrick.

how can you appreciate a system in which each vote doesn't matter? elections are determined on projections and the loser concedes prior to every vote being counted. then, most places stop counting the votes.

Why can't we just let every vote be counted, then decide who won?

Eliminate the electoral college, disallow the release of results until every vote has been counted, disallow ANY kind of exit polling.

Having to wait a few days won't go over well with the news networks, but it would protect the integrity of our election process.


Oh, and we should move towards proportional representation.

here here. But every vote SHOULD count. There is no reason for us to have this clusterfrick of an election process.

FWIW, the governor of FL and the sec of state are both republicans. So its unlikely a democratic conspiracy, instead its likely pure incompetence.
