This country is farked. The Electoral College and how the country is constructed is going to doom us. More and more capable people - almost anybody capable - is going to the cities. It will be wastelands of crappy evangelical/white supremacist nonsense voting in our majority governments from here on out.

The Senate will be a tough 'ho to row, but I'm hoping that the same non-voting independents (minus the Fark ® symbol) will be as fed up with D2S as they were with Bush in '06.

This midterm doesn't look good for the D's as far as controlling Congress, but turning any seats would be a good sign--and there's been a trend in that direction in special elections. The one to watch is 2020.

There is a easy way to fix that, you know.  Stop moving away.  You're self-gerrymandering.  It's your own collective fault.  You've abandoned traditional Democratic strongholds in rural areas for the cities, and now it's costing you.  So move back and fight.  Running away to the cities, and having the hubris to assume you are better makes it all the more deliciously ironic.

But even if we changed the Constitution to elect the president by the popular vote, you'd still be screwed in Congress, especially the House.

He's got a point, doglover.

People leave Ohio for NY or California where they can live in a nice safe blue state where they don't have to put up with right wing insanity and racism and sexism and homophobia and so on.

Well then that's one less liberal vote for the Senate or President in the election in Ohio which (as many on Fark say) is the same as a vote for the GOP.  So as the liberal people leave Ohio, Ohio becomes less purple and more red and the electoral votes and Senate seats go to the GOP.

There was this phrase about "regime change starts at home" or something like that when Dubya was President.  Maybe we should bring that back and get people to stop running away to the liberal safe states and stay and fight back home.

So instead of going where the jobs are, just camp your ass and biatch about no jobs in the boonies?  Didn't Donnie tell people to move to where the jobs were now that he's got the job where he claimed he'd be bringing all those $20/hr jobs with gold level benies?

Those who are leaving are looking for actual jobs and lives and can't stand the welfare, the opiates, and the racism. It's easy to say: stick around for electoral purposes! When you realize you're in a shiathole, you normally want to get out.

I think there is an issue where people say "move where the jobs are" and then saying "look you are giving up control of rural areas to republicans!"  A lot of cities tend to be where jobs are so it is hard to argue strongly against living in one. I moved to a new city just 2 months ago for my job.

Yes, move to those millions of jobs in rural areas. You can't walk ten feet without a job offer, I swear!

The fact is that the electoral college proved in the last election that it's a useless institution that provides no oversight or evaluation whatsoever. If all you're going to do is tally electoral votes, you don't need an electoral college you just need an adding machine. We can also look at why rural areas and states are so over-represented.

I love that our local degenerate is saying millions of people should stay in backwater areas for the sole purpose of countering our ridiculously gerrymandered and unbalanced voting system.

Has it occurred to you that maybe there's a REASON that so many people "flee" to cities? Maybe because large cities have a damn near insurmountable advantage as far as economic mobility, education availability, and job availability are concerned?

As has always been true, people go where the jobs are. The cities have the well-paying jobs. So you get people going there. Shocking, I know.

My story is like many others. I moved out of the small, very red town I grew up in at 18. It wasn't to escape its politics or the people there. I was "liberal" for the place but that never caused me any trouble. I always quite liked the community I grew up in even if I didn't (and very much don't) agree with the majority politics. I left to go to college and my career since has taken me mostly to big cities b/c that's where the jobs are.

I can see this with my facebook friends from high school, black, white, gay, straight, conservative, liberal, virtually all of them who went to college now live in a large city. Virtually everyone I know who stayed there is working some shiatty dead-end low-paying job that is not to be envied.

Your narrative is stupid beyond belief. People (with very few exceptions) don't move because of politics. The exceptions I personally know would be gay people, and I can't say I blame them.

And you can rail all you want about people wanting to change the constitution, but if the urbanization of America continues at the pace it is, either the system will have to change to reflect that or the people will increasingly view the system as fundamentally illegitimate. We can already see the GOP steeling for that as they increasingly hedge the system to make it harder and harder for the majority of the people to actually have a say in our system.

Finally, just to repeat myself, what you said was stupid and you should be ashamed of such lazy thinking.

Since land matters more than people soon we will have 70% of the senate controlled by 30% of the population due to concentrations of people in big blue states. Even if gerrymandering rules are fixed by the SCOTUS (doubtful) the house will probably maintain a rightward lean due to the prevalence of republican legislators and governors in rural states disenfranchising minorities. We will also probably continue to see republican presidents winning by electoral vote, not popular vote. So other than winning the presidency every once in a while liberals will be shut out of power. The country will start to look more and more like Kansas. I think that's just something we're going to have to get used to.

The diaspora of rural America is a symptom, not the problem. The problem is, over a few decades we've completely destroyed a layer of our economy and nothing has taken it's place.

I grew up in Kentucky. I have a degree and I had to get the hell out of the bluegrass state and move out west to find a job in my field, which happens to be in tech.

It's not as easy as saying "don't move dummy!"  You gotta go where the jobs are. Kentucky is not exactly a hotbed of tech start-up activity. I had a $13/hr job before I got sick of it and decided to move. Doing much better now.

Yeah. I don't give a shiat about voting blue in a red state anymore. I am actively looking for jobs in California. The second I find one, I'm moving the fark out of Arizona. My vote is meaningless here anywhere. I'd rather live in San Diego or L.A. anyway, and I live in a relatively blue area (Flagstaff) of Arizona.

That, and congress is supposed to be providing the more proportional representation, with the design of the Senate to ensure unpopulated get the extra representation per capita.

We've come so far that the Senate is actually the more balanced body. That is farked up.

But even if we changed the Constitution to elect the president by the popular vote, you'd still be screwed in Congress, especially the House.

But we shouldn't change the Constitution just because you're pissed about losing.

Yeah, why have a career in my field and an actual income, when I could move back to Appalachia for electoral purposes?

I'm in Appalachia, and I don't want to be here. It isn't so simple as "move to the city," sometimes. So, I guess y'all can count on one more blue vote in a sea of red. Yay, I suppose.

RolandTGunner: Nancy, I love you. Please retire and take Diane with you.
For all the good you may have done in the past you have been too vilified to be effective any more.

/just how I feel.


Pelosi is very, very good at what she does, which is wrangling votes and procedural shenanigans. I agree about how she is used as a lightning rod for the right, and so maybe it's worth it for her to go to avoid that, but she's very good.

Feinstein, meh.

I am currently taking perverse pleasure in the fact that our next Civil War will be fought over football.

The saddest part is we could still overcome it as a population if our 90 million non-voters stopped being morons, but I doubt that will ever happen.

Oh well, like I've said before, I'll always vote for the betterment of the total population and country, but when moderates and liberals stay home this next time I'm done doing anything beyond that. I'll be going full fark you I've got mine in a generalized sense.

I'll try to help individuals I know, love, and respect, as I've always done, and their needs are why I bother working my OT and will continue to do so. But I won't pretend I can change anything else. I firmly believe it won't get better until it gets worse and more people wake up. My idealism is waning.
