something I just found out about yesterday. fascinating. its a shame that the republicans got a bunch of states to ban the practice because they don't want to fight "against the world" (wouldn't that be against the people who you want/intend to represent?) or cater to anyone else, etc.

fortunately, connecticut is one of the handful of states where it is still legal. read about it here and here. I love the idea that a party can be beholden to the few percent that tip the scale in a close vote. reminds of of why OPEC controls oil prices too. strange.

hell, if we were able to do this in every vote, on every matter, including the presidency, we might not be in the shithole we are now. especially bush being president. damn.

why haven't we repealed the bans? when does the other party candidate/party decide who they give their votes to? before, or after the votes are tallied? the little people would have more power if it was after.


comments? debate? let's go people.

(yeah, I'm mostly ignoring capital letters at this point. should I go wholesale and even not capitalize I or proper names? hrm. perhaps. would it annoy the hell out of my f-list? maybe.)
