Some Are More Equal Than Others

I feel bad.  My feelings have been hurt.  For the second consecutive presidential election in Pennsylvania my wish for president has gone unfulfilled.

I have also discovered that as a white male, I am now, an official minority.  So as recent American trends have developed, I want to impose my wishes over the ruling of the majority.

In Pennsylvania, the results for the presidential election were as follows:
            Barack Obama - 52% of the popular vote at 2,894,079
            Mitt Romney     - 47% of the popular vote at 2,610,385

These figures make it a fact that I and 2,610,384 other Pennsylvanians are minority voters.  The majority has paid no attention to our needs or wants but has cast their votes for a candidate, we in the minority, don't want.  This will prompt the 20 electoral college voters to cast their vote for the majority approved president elect.  IS THAT FAIR!!  NO!!

There are 67 counties in the Keystone State and 55 counties were Red (82%) and only 12 (18%) were Blue.  This is absolute proof that we Romney voters got the shaft.  But don't you worry, I have a solution to ease the guilty conscience of the Obama voters.

The electors should cast their votes as dictated by the number of counties for each candidate.  So if we used yesterday's results, the 20 electors would have to cast their vote for Romney because he took the state by a county count of 55 to 12.

This new system would strip the oppressive counties of Philadelphia, Erie, Allegheny, Dauphin, Luzerne, Lackawanna, Monroe, Northampton, Lehigh, Bucks, Montgomery and Delaware of their powers to subjugate us 55.  Domari Nolo!

Write the governor.  Write your legislative representatives.  How long will this tyranny last?
