One man, one-half a vote.  
Michigan and Florida voters: well, you get half a say rather than none. Thank your legislatures and local party leaders for making sure that you were the first states to vote, and also the first states to have your voices muted.

So, there we have it. So long as you're rich or willing to squeal loudly and publicly at someone rich who will do anything to shut you up, there are no consequences for actions in modern America. Senator Clinton, one of the first to decry the gun-jumping back in January on the parts of Michigan and Florida in going ahead with a primary, one of the camps that readily agreed that those two primaries would not count, needed the votes and thus proved that "principle" is nothing compared to victory.

Kudos on reiterating my position that democracy in America is a failed experiment.

Do you have a plan to replace this "failed experiment"?

Yes, but no way to implement it, which is a critical flaw.

I had a plan once as well. Remember that Trav? Damn girls got me sidetracked.

I think it's really sick that a state where OBAMA WASN'T EVEN ON THE BALLOT is getting counted. WTF??!?

I think they should have a revote in those states, frankly.
