The debate has started again as to whether the US Constitution should be amended in order to change the presidential election process. Some promote
eliminating the Electoral College in favor of a direct popular vote for president while others believe the Electoral College should remain unchanged. Just as compromise solved the initial problems of the framers so it is that compromise can solve this problem. The solution is to change the electoral votes to electoral points and reward each candidate a percentage of points based on the percentage of popular votes received in each state.

This would eliminate the "winner take all" system thus allowing for all the votes to count. A voter is more apt to believe their vote counted when a percentage of popular votes are taken into account rather than the "all or nothing" system currently in existence. Further, this new system would integrate the desire for a popular vote for president with the need for the individual states to determine who actually gets elected.
 
As for political primaries the number of delegates awarded in each state should be determined by the percentage of votes won by each candidate.
 
For 2016 multiplying the percentage of votes each candidate received {in each state} times the number of electoral votes {in each state} results in the following: Clinton 256.985 and Trump 253.482.

Bought my tickets for Friday night. I want to go Thursday at midnight but I'd be dragging ass the next day and I am going to a better theater on Friday anyway. Reviews are solid, I am excited.

Yes, we're still here. I've been trying to keep Spam out with sign-ins so I hadn't let anyone new sign up recently.
I think I have the problem licked and hope to get things back in motion here in a week or so.
As for Prometheus, I'm going to a press screening on Thursday. I'll let you guys know what I thought.

I don't know, I am hoping people drop by and see some discussion going on.

Yeah Prometheus is my #1 must-see movie this summer. I wonder what Beckmen thinks about it so far.

Hey Mirage52, I'm looking forward to this for sure!

Hey is anyone still around here?  I haven't been here in so long and it looks a bit like a ghost town...

Hey Everyone... it has been too long!  After running intotheblu.com for the past few years, I have recently been working on a new website that reinvents the way movies (along with blu-ray's and tv series) are reviewed.  The site is called moviemarbles.com and it is a review scorecard site. In just two weeks, we have already published 400 reviews... and we are growing fast!  This site is the first of it's kind and is a whole new approach to online reviews.  Please let check it out at moviemarbles.com and let me know your thoughts by posting here.

Thanks!
