There are statics you can read.

Educated white women voted for Clinton.

I don't make these statistics up.

There was a huge gender divide in this election.

Trump won - get the # used to it - done, Finoto



Like, you all got used to Obama?


Funny, how you can 'accept" President Obama, who was duly elected in the same infrastructure and voting process as Trump, yet embrace the fact that it doesn't work now because YOUR candidate didn't win.


Uneducated, white male panic - - - votes for who?

Trump - - - the common man who understands their plight.


And so, what you're attempting to say is .... what?? Your message is being lost in whatever progressive obscurity you think is so avant garde to employ.


Obama is actually the common man who understands.

Amazing that so many of a certain group refused to see it.


Which has absolutely zero to do with the reason I replied to you in the first place....you're championing the cause that #NotMyPresident and when someone tells you to accept the fact that he indeed IS your president, like it or not, that they didn't "accept Obama"....by forwarding Obama as your argument was dumb on your part seeing as how you ACCEPT him given that he was elected and placed as POTUS under the same conditions that youre now decrying....don't try and make your argument relevant by reverse logic....it only works on children.

By espousing the same fundamental principle that they do if you believe that Trump is not officially our POTUS. If you do, then no further argument.

ETA: and by saying you recognize himm as our duly elected President, you are, by extension "Accepting" him as our President, because they ARE one and the same.

Are you saying the majority voting population in FL is white males then?
That would seem to be essential if the argument is that white males won it?
...or non whites and females also voted for Trump.
I imagine non whites and females also voted for him, the white male demographic cannot be THAT big in FL.

The point is this entire election was orchestrated to undo the Electoral College system.


I think that there is something to that. Trump kept saying that election was "rigged" and that the "Electoral College is destroying democracy."

Since Hillary won the popular vote, it's no wonder to me why these people are protesting in the streets. What I don't condone is the violence, but personally, I think the violence is a planned psyop, orchestrated by TPTB ans would have happened regardless of who won.



"Since Hillary won the popular vote"

Really...all of the votes are counted now?

Politco shows 17 States has having uncounted votes still out. Still too close to call IMO.



Look at the states that are far behind in counting...California and Washington still in the 60% range, last time I checked.

Hillary's popular vote win is going to grow.

The electors are going to have a very good excuse to be faithless.

This was all completely orchestrated. They are dragging out the counting to create more civil unrest.

We are in the middle of a sh*tstorm.

I literally hate Hillary and Trump. But I can handle four years of the person elected: Trump. I haven't voted for a winner since 1996. I swallowed all those losses even though it sucked, time & again. No one changed the rules to suit me.

I cannot handle changing the rules after the vote. I hope all hell breaks loose if they do this. I am sick of feeling like my vote is being defiled. I don't care how right Democrats think they are. They have an opportunity to vote against him in four years.

Faithless electors is a very dark road to travel on.

And even in Texas,

The latinos that I relate too are not only educated, but came into this country by legal means and never had the need for government assistance, that makes a big difference on what they perceive to be right or wrong.

I don't make these statistics up.

There was a huge gender divide in this election.


College Graduated White women voted for Clinton 51-45 (much closer than the media were making up before the election)
White women overall voted for Trump in a landslide 53-43.
College grad white men voted for Trump in a landslide 54-39

Basically Trump had no problem getting the female vote he needed or the college grad. votes he needed.

The main reason the election was even close is because Trump did not manage to get a decent percentage of the black and Hispanic votes (although he beat Romney's totals).

If Trump does a good job for inner cities in the next 4 years then he will win all 50 states in 2020.

The US is not a democracy. It is a representative republic. That means we have a group of people that speak for the masses--the electoral college.

The general election is over. The public has voted. The electoral college has not voted. The way it is supposed to work is that they follow the will of the voters in each state. If this happens then Trump is president.

People are protesting to sway the electoral college to go against the grain. That is what is being said to you here by MotherMayEye on page two. The system would be broken and riots for real would break out across the nation for real. Martial law may be enacted.

So there is your answer. Plus, it is fun tipping cars over and setting them on fire!

Exactly - and that is precisely what the Nazi Lady Gaga is urging people to sign a petition for.
Ignore the vote and select Clinton.

The point being, if you want to object or change the system, do it before the vote. Don't wait till after the event to express your concerns.....


Especially since we have been here before.

This is what they told us when we felt the election was stolen from Gore. We were told that we had to accept the outcome so as not to divide the country, and that we had to work to fix the system if we think it is broken.

Yet here we are.
