I'm not very big on politics nor am I a registered voter but I'm curious about the opinions on this statement.

This is in regards to the presidential elections.

I think the 2000 election between Bush and Gore proves that every vote counts!

If you mean the presidential elections, practically no ones vote counts, they don't give a shit about the popular vote

Yes. If more people voted shit would be completly different. People need to get off their asses and put our democracy to work.

If every vote had counted in that election Gore would have been president!

Hell no. When my electoral college can vote for whoever they want my vote doesn't really matter.

The electoral college has voted differently than the popular vote in only a handful of elections. During Obama's election, there was a big surge in youth and minority voters.

I don't think the EC is the problem, it's the good ole boy system that produces the candidates that is the problem.
