Seeing that PA has a Republican governor and Assembly, it leads me to believe that the only way States like PA can be cured of awarding all its electoral votes to Democrats (how Philadelphia and Pittsburgh vote determines who gets all the electoral votes) is to go with proportional awarding. Many other States are in this same situation. The cities determine the presidency. Winner take all has to go. So, Mr. DeHaven, if you have the professor's ear, maybe pass on my suggestion. Eliminate winner takes all and institute proportional. The PA Democrats will howl so loud, they'll be heard in California.

This is a great idea. It's essentially the electoral college at the state level, to protect the smaller towns. Excellent point.

I think PA had passed a voter ID law that was held up as Constitutional, but the judge wouldn't allow implementation this year, and threw the state to the wolves (and Obama) this time, but in the next four years the big city hell-holes will depopulate and it won't be as big a problem.

What is with "winner takes all" electoral votes. I think with CA & NY already in the bag for Obama gave him approx. 80 electoral votes right out of the gate. I suspect the reason the cities always vote Demoncrat is because that is where the social services are located. When you incorporate into a city you must disperse and manage social services. That is why towns and villages are more appealing visually. Go to the cities' low-income offerings of free food, etc. and bums are always hanging out there.

Supporters of limited government have little to cheer about today (and Romney winning wouldn’t have changed that in my opinion), so I’m going to point out a small glimmer of hope. In Pennsylvania’s 79th district, voters elected a local finance professor and radio host named John McGinnis to the state House of Representatives. A lot of Republicans talk a good game about liberty and smaller government – “Dr. John” eats it for breakfast.

Now I’m fully aware that unconventional candidates for public office generally have their best chance for success in lower profile races. The 79th district is also solidly Republican and so...
