OT. Don't want to hear it. Try Orkut or somewhere else.

Sorry list, I just couldn't resist......

*Electoral votes vs. Population [1]

State    Population Votes  Votes / M pop.
-----------------------------------------
Alaska      648,818   3        4.624
Wyoming     501,242   3        5.985
Texas    22,118,509  34        1.537
....

I guess you must have missed that day in elementary 
school when they covered this.  Pretty simple huh???

Are you happy that a Wyoming voter has 3.89 times the 
political power you do????

The problem isn't so much the weighting (it's even more extreme in the
senate), but the "the winner gets it all" principle adopted in most
states.  This means that both election campaigns do not care a bit
about states like Texas where a ten percent swing in one direction or
the other simply has no net result.
