The Constitution lets the electoral college choose the winner. They should choose Clinton.

An Elector exercising their vote in favor of the Popular Vote has nothing to do with mental illness.


You are starting to get it. Now realize the NATIONAL popular vote has nothing to do with each individual STATE popular vote.

Each state gets its own electors. They are not federally appointed, they are chosen.

Again, the nation consists of 50 sovereign states in a union.

Trump and his supporters have been hypocrites this whole campaign. It's rigged when the polls are down, not when they're up; rigged if he loses, not if he wins. He'll accept results if he wins, not if he loses-- and every step of the way his supporters supported whichever position Trump took at the time-- so you can all go shove it with you"accept the results" bullsh#t. You forfeited your integrity long ago.

Hillary is the winner of the Popular Vote by over 2.1 million... recounts are taking place... meanwhile Trump is filling the White House with alt-right white nationalists...

The EC have a real vote of conscience ahead for them. Side with the people's vote or veto the people's choice and elect a man who is mentally unfit and has attracted misinformation agents and white nationalists to his team. A guy who supports racial profiling, torture, even humanitarian war crimes, and media silencing.

EC should step up and do what they were meant to do in cases like this-- it's even easier because they don't have to defy the will of the people but simply uphold the people's choice for president, and reaffirm voter equality, by casting their vote for the winner of the Popular Vote, Hillary Clinton.

I don't understand how you don't grasp the concept of the EC. It's NOT one group of 538 people. It's 50 INDIVIDUAL groups broken into specific numbers based on population per state with 2 given to each state for senatorial votes.

Each individual EC group WILL vote with their conscience of their state's popular vote. The US is comprised of 50 individual states.

It seems to be the inability to understand higher order concepts, such as 50 individual states comprise a "United States" of America. In this particular case, we are NOT a single country. That is the purpose of the federal system, not the state system. The EC is responsible within a state system, not a federal system.

And it IS possible you will be struck on the head by a falling meteor too. However, the likelihood of that happening is just much as a faithless elector breaking a state law and risking being dismissed from this duty.



Some people fight for their country with a gun in their hand on foreign soil. Others only risk being dismissed from their duty. No one said fighting for the principles and values of your country in the face of tyranny would be risk free.


No it isn't, and if the efforts to subvert the majority of the areas in this country in what they voted for this time around comes to pass ... you might be facing the legally owned gun of your neighbor in a hot civil war instead of this cold one we are currently fighting.

For the record, my candidate didn't win either. But, I accept that fact, and have moved on to try to work within the legal results of the established election process of MY country. We get another shot in 4 years. Until then, it is work at the local and state level to assist in that 4 year goal.

That is how it works in the real world.

I tried to dumb it down as much as possible. I can't make it any more simple.

Oh well, some people will continue to try to shove the square block through the circle hole.

We live in a Post Trump world... I didn't think making an ass out of yourself was even a thing anymore. Now we slurp up twitter feeds as gospel, reject established journalists with decades of credibility in favor of fear porn misinformation peddler Alex Jones.... no.... I don't think this new world has any place telling someone they're acting like an ass.

For the record, I don't have a Twitter account and never will. I do not read reddit either. I read/watch mutliple new sources both inside and outside America. I then distill it down to the common pieces and decide for myself what constitutes truth and "fake news".

This whole, fake news issue stems from the lack of investigative news consumption because it it not wrapped in a 140 character limit and takes too much time to collate for many of these people. Sorry, you want the truth, then you need to find it, as it will not be provided by the MSM in total. The last trusted man in the MSM was Walter Cronkite IMO. He is gone...and with him went journalistic integrity.

Perhaps we need to provide some play doe or a story to east the shock of losing here? Obviously, using logic and reason does not work, at least so far.

Bwwaahhahaha! Nice joke. I'll have the coloring books and playdoh ready when you realize Hillary will never be President.




spiritual zombie, your anti-Trump threads are numerous, like mushrooms after a rain. A hard crying snowflake tear driven rain.

It will not happen. I have read everyone of your posts throughout the thread. Most receive no stars and I saw a few that had one star though I might have missed a couple. I know we don't post for stars but there is a reason you are not getting any stars on your posts. You are not striking a cord. You are not speaking for anyone here. No one believes in what you are preaching and i have to think deep down you don't either. Your desperation was called for weeks ago before the insulted and under valued of america cast their vote. You said trump would only accept the results if he won and he did win. The clinton machine was appalled at the idea he might not accept the results if he lost and here you stand displaying the very attitude they thought trump and his supporters would have. you must see the irony. i know the whole outcome comes to a shock to you as much as it does to all of us. It's time to accept it like those diehard clinton supporters who aren't starring your posts. rebuild the party and never bring such a weak candidate as hillary clinton to the ticket again. you want change that is the way, not by changing the rules at the end of the game or begging for the referee for one more second on the clock to throw one last impossible hail mary. change the gameplan and consider the past just well.....the past.
