ITS DOESNT MATTER. Didint you hear what St Al the Martyr of FLA said
EVERY VOTE COUNTS.
For one vote to be uncounted is to silence the voice of a once strong
democracy.One vote is any vote, any state any county any where. It doesnt
matter thats its in a swing state or a non swing state, that it is not
counted is the thing, the only thing, the last thing st al has left. So in
order to win EVREY VOTE MOST BE COUNTED.
This is not about being the easiest way or the most rational, its about
EVERY VOTE COUNTING. Or was that empty words? (think, stop drop roll)
or is it , perhaps, that some votes are more powerfull than others? Is
this the suggestion.

No, thats called a change of topic and bzzzzzzt you loose. Thanks for
playing though. We live in a REBUPLIC. have you ever listened to yourself
say the pledge of alliegence, or do you swear to things you dont
understand? We vote for represntation of the electorial college. You need
a gov 101 leason?
Now is not the time to create divisons, now is the time to come togther as
a strong nation, as a single voice, one that is built from the votes of
every citizen. We most take our time and let the system secure the God
given right that everyones vote will be counted. In this way we will see
our way to the end of this nations current problem. Every vote must count.

EVERY VOTE counts. repeat it repeat it repeat it.
If your going to talk the talk, at least try to walk the walk.
