That being the case, let's nuke the Electoral College1

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why? So a few states can win a election? So a few states will get all the "goodies"? So candidates will only campaign in a few states?

The E C makes sense in so many ways. We have been through this and no one has been able to give a logical reason why we should do away with the EC...can you?


Nice to see you support the electoral college. You do know the electoral college was designed to keep some one like Trump out of Office. Go read your history on why we have the college. It was to keep the uneducated rabble from electing the wrong person to office. Well it did not do the job on Trump so times have change and we should look at changes in the current system.

Funny. I always liked Rodney Dangerfield. One time as I arrived in Las Vegas I saw that Rodney was performing. I decided to see him on stage, but it was his last night. He left town. I was disappointed.

 

I remember hearing this story about him.

 

Rodney was in the hospital ready to go in for heart surgery. His wife and his best friend were at his bedside.

Rodney said "The doctors told me that if everything goes well I should be out in 2 weeks. If things don't go well I should be out in 2 hours."

Did the Dimms learn anything from the 2016 Election?

Centrist said, "Oh, so they didn't call them criminals...is that what you're saying?  So, how are you going to pay of the debt?  I remember you Republicans attacking Democrats and Obama for the national deficit which under GOP Control and rump leadership, is the highest in US history at 22 Trillion dollars AND climbing, meanwhile, slashing revenue which is increasing the deficit exponentially .....so what happened to that?"

 

The answer is simple in Trump World. If the deficit rose under Obama, that was horrible for America. 

When the deficit rose $1 TRILLION under Trump, they completely ignore the national debt. 

 

Big Time HYPOCRISY.

Most economists have already stated that Warren's wealth tax does not add up. We cannot afford it.

Try this:


One Person, One Vote!

The main objective of a Free People, a Free Electorate, and a Free Society.



Appropriate for every Individual Citizen


================================================================
FYI We have that.

Obvously we don't have that or whoever won the popular vote would also have the most electoral votes.  Obviously you are wrong again.

Try this:


One Person, One Vote! Epic FAILURE. The Republican Gerrymanders reduces the vote of urban/suburban Democrats to around 40% of the vote of rural GOPers. The Electoral College allowed 74,000 GOPers to overrule 3,000,000 Democrats

The main objective of a Free People, a Free Electorate, and a Free Society.Only if you define "freedom" as "nothing left to lose".



Appropriate for every Individual Citizen and the Republican definition of "appropriate" is "good for rich whites, not so good for everyone else".


================================================================
FYI We have that. FYI - only in the lalaland of FoxBots and only in the lies told by Fox and Frauds.

We learned, once again, what happens when you appoint a Republican as president. They destroy our international relations, increase deficits, destroy trade relations, and trample the rights of American citizens. 

 

Did I miss anything? Oh yes, and they are incompetent.
