The Life and Times of a Dev Yes, we're really that weird

I've maintained that we're hosed, no matter who you vote for, but now there's mathematical proof that regardless of how you vote, you're voting for a white liberal male.  Here's the math.

 

1 Liberal Black Male + 1 Liberal White Male=1 Liberal White Male + 1 Conservative White Female

 

So first, Black Male and White female cancel each other out.  They're basically the same thing--both minorities, both oppressed citizens of these united states.  That leaves us with:

 

1 Liberal Black Male + 1 Liberal White Male=1 Liberal White Male + 1 Conservative White Female

 

Of course, 1 Conservative and 1 Liberal cancel each other out, leaving:

 

1 Liberal Black Male + 1 Liberal White Male=1 Liberal White Male + 1 Conservative White Female

 

And there you have it.  1 liberal white male=1 liberal white male.  Now if McCain had been a conservative, you'd be voting for nothing, but as you can see, you're clearly voting for one liberal white male, no matter how you look at the equation.  It'll be fun to watch!

Now I'm sure this equation could be extended, and I know you might question my math, but I thought it was interesting . . .

You can oversimplify anything. Congrats on proving that. Guess your one of those that believe the two party system is great :)

Support instant run off voting. It's the only way to effect true change.
