smussman Re: 800 Bucks to Spend (298 comments)

Iowa Seeks To Remove Electoral College

smussman Re:But other states could block... (1088 comments)

Under this idea the votes in Wyoming would be worth just as much as the votes in Florida.

Yes and no. One vote in Wyoming would be worth exactly as much as a vote in Florida in the sense that they both get you one step closer to being elected. But one vote in Wyoming would also be much more expensive because the cost of reaching people in an area that is so sparsely populated is so much higher.

I don't see an elimination of extra attention paid to some states/areas, but a shift from what are now the swing states to the population centers, where the density makes it much easier to reach people.

smussman Re:did the study only measure reliability? (301 comments)

I'm willing to make that measurement for you in a highly standardized way, but I'm not sure what the SI units for "cuteness" are. Could you enlighten me on this?

Software Spots Spin In Political Speeches

smussman Re:Subject (438 comments)

Then aren't you always lying?
I mean, I know I can never tell anyone everything. I have a limited amount of time to inform someone about something, and so can't give them all the facts (ie, must not be telling certain things). Is this lying?
