Alec Johnson, to your comment on september 30. I liked how you wanted the condidates to talk about obamacare and the state of the economy. But abortion hits a personal note with the majority of american voters and has been a major political issue since the 60's. I would have prefered that they would have talked about the deficit instead, or maybe energy independence, or foreign policy concerning the 9/11 benghazi attacks.

In response to Mike O's comment regarding the electoral college saying it should be kept due to what our Founding Fathers had established, I want to point out that this is a good thought. Today we still use their structure of the Constitution following the main principles they set up. Even though we have had some amendments added, the way we conduct the presidential elections should be a kept tradition.

In regards to Zach Matusinec's comment about the electoral college "The electoral college should not be kept as a part of the presidential election system. Currently, those who make up the minority party in a large state (such as Democrats in Texas) do not have any say in the outcome of their states electoral votes. A popular vote would give a better measure of the sentiments of the country as a whole." This is a great example of why the electoral college should be abloshied. When posting on this comment earlier, I was on the fence but this comment really makes a valid point that minorities in states really do not have any say. GREAT EXAMPLE ZACH!

in response to josh D's comment about the Electoral college and why we should keep it, He made a good point about that are founding fathers made the decision to have one and the to keep a democracy and representative government we need one so each state is represented. I think this is a very good reasoning to why we should have a electoral college, and explaining how each state is represented through its electoral votes.

In response to Olyvia Moczynski’s comment on September 16th with regards to the question “Who has Political Power ?”: Olyvia stated that presidential candidate Mitt Romney has political power because of what he has done in the past and what he plans to do in the future. She discussed the fact that, as governor of Massachusetts, he lowered the unemployment rate and cleared-up the deficit. She then discussed his plan of action if he were to be given the powerful title of United States President. She incorporated the definition of power throughout her comment as well. Good job Olyvia!

To Matt Gilson's comment on the electoral college, he states that nothing terrible has happened throughout, a reason to keeping it. However, the popular vote and the electoral vote has not always added up, which influences our elections and our futures.

I would like to respond to matt gilsons comment on the electoral college he states that nothing bad has happened yet, just because nothing bad has happened doesn't mean nothing will, and it doesn't mean there isn't a better way to construct the electoral college to better represent the united states.

In response to Mike O's comment regarding the electoral college saying it should be kept due to what our Founding Fathers had established, I completely agree with this statement considering that our country is run on what our founding fathers established for the government and the country and I think we should keep the electoral college because its a tradition as well.

In response to Jordan Kamiski's comment on the electoral college... I completely agree with you that it should be abolished or altered and I liked your example of the 2000 election where America's votes clearly did not reflect the results.

In response to Brody's comment about the Florida's Senator race, it wa really interesting. I saw that Bill Nelson, the incumbent won. It was one of the most expensive campaigns. (abcnewsgo.com)

An interesting and insightful comment by Nick Berry about the Maine senate race. I had not even thought about this race because I thought the incumbent Snowe was running for reelection. But with him out of he picture Mr. Berry points out that "As of now, the top two people are Summers and King. This could change the currently held Republican seat to an Independent seat. The Independent King is leading and could bring a more bipartisan face to the Senate even though King is slightly conservative." It's very interesting how an independent could really help either side since they are the most likely to be bipartisan.

In response to Peyton Tebon's comment about the Electoral College. I like that he wants to keep the Electoral College and also, he made another interesting point that I agree with. He said that the states shouldn't be a 'winner take all' system and that the state should be divided into seperate districts. This would cause less campaigning in popular states and more campaigning in the less popular states. I think that this is a good idea because we are still using the system of our Founding Fathers, but we would just be adjusting it a little bit.
