...that's still stupid. Actually, moreso. o.O
And I'm sorry, but... a purely popular vote is "too reckless"?! In some sense more reckless than democracy in general?
Oooooh. In the sense that you might LOSE if you actually counted all the votes. Especially with the record voter turnout, apparently. And I guess it would seem "reckless" if you had a sneaking suspicion that ALL THE PEOPLE WITH BRAINS IN YOUR COUNTRY would probably like to see you stripped naked, tarred, feathered, and driven up Main Street U.S.A. by a herd of rabid bulls. o.O
