Score Update and Electoral College Explanation

Terrorists 1
Freedom 0

Well because of the spineless EUers, they now have a new president in Spain. A socialist no less, and he has said he will no longer help with the war in Iraq. They way they see it, if they put their heads in the sand and beg not to be bothered, they terrorists will leave them alone.

This also further scares me because if the polls were any indication, the terrorists attacks directly influenced the election. Even if it didn't, it looks like it did, and the terrorists see that. With elections coming up in our country, I would be careful.

One thing going on our side is the Electoral College. If a week or so before the election Bush is ahead in the polls, and an attack happens, and Kerry wins, Bush can still be re-elected, thanks to the Electoral College.

One of the reasons the electoral college was instituted was to stop sudden swings in voter sentiment. Just as in Spain when the Popular party was firmly in the lead until the attacks where they then lost to the Socialist party. In America even if Kerry were to win the popular vote, the electors would not have to vote for him, and could vote for Bush.
