GOP not 'scheming' to rig elections
TO THE EDITORS:
I read the article "Democrats' robocalls urge voters to oppose GOP plan," by staff writer Karen Shuey.
I've been seeing somewhat childish behavior from both parties. They are biased and creating division between people. If the people of Pennsylvania want a different way of voting, we have the right to do so as a state.
I can understand why Pennsylvania is considering changing the way electoral votes are counted. If you see a map of Pennsylvania for the 2012 election, you'll see that map is practically all red except for a couple of blue areas, yet Obama took the state. They tell you "every vote counts" when, in reality, only a few places of Pennsylvania show importance to the candidates and the election and will change the outcome of the race.
In the story, former Gov. Ed Rendell said, "The Republican Party is scheming to rig the next election because they can't win on the issues."
I feel this statement is a false accusation. There has been no inkling that Republicans are scheming anything. This statement is just another of many statements that divide the parties and create anger.
Republicans are not trying to rig the polls for the next election; Pennsylvania has just become aware that key cities and counties in Pennsylvania run the election and do not represent the voice of the state as a whole.
