With the President ordering the closing of Guantanamo Bay, the question arises: what to do with the prisoners there?
However, let’s assume that the administration recognizes that the bad guys are bad guys and need to be kept locked up somewhere.
Some states are saying they don’t want them. And I agree. I don’t want my state housing them.
But, then again, my state voted for McCain.
I have a solution that ought to make everybody happy: Spread the Guantanamo Bay prisoners around among the states that voted for Obama. I mean, after all, he campaigned on the promise to close Gitmo. So it’s not like they didn’t know he’d do it, right?
Well, it was okay with them if he did. So much so that they voted him into office.
I’m for having those responsible for putting Obama into office having to put up with the consequences.
Here’s the plan: There are, by one count, 245 prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. 28 states and the District of Columbia awarded 365 Electoral Votes to Obama.
Spread them out accordingly.
For each Electoral Vote for Obama, a state gets just over 2/3 (0.671) of a prisoner. Here’s the breakdown:
|State||Electoral Votes||Guantanamo Bay
This could solve all kinds of problems.
