With all of the gerrymandering by the GOP in all states that gave Trump the presidency despite losing the popular vote by almost 3 MILLION votes, it does go to show how we as a country are losing the democratic principles that made our country great.

Take North Carolina for example, according to these noted political scientists that have traveled and consulted the world regarding elections and democracy, if North Carolina existed as a nation-state, it would be no better than Iran or Sierra Leone. Think about that for one second. In the lust for control and power by the right wingers in government, they are essentially turning our country state by state to become a 3rd world authoritarian dictatorship.

This article makes several good points as to how bad things have become in NC. It's just a matter of time before this is implemented in other right wing controlled states. Truly sad to see how much progress our country has made over the last 200 years to have a group of paranoid control freaks within the GOP dispense with our progress as a country to "make america great again" by making it a 3rd world country again.

If interested, please read this professor's article about NC's situation.

I did read it and it's crap.

First off he is all upset about the popular vote.

We don't elect presidents by a popular vote... you would think after THIS election people might know that.

Secondly, we are not a Democracy. We are a Democratic Republic. If we were a Democracy we would have failed at the civil war point and would be working with something else now. He seems not to understand that. Perhaps his major is in theoretical feminism?

Third, does Butthurt + Professor mean we should care a little more about someone who just doesn't understand the process?

Forth and final, if we looked at California and rated it's voting process it would probably rank right up there with North Korea. No illegal voting there even though we've been promoting it for 30 years.. ~wink wink~.

This is just another wailing screaming loser trying to make a point after the fact because... loser.

It's crap because it doesn't fall in line with the right wing power grab that is currently in progress.

Yes, we live in a democratic republic. We have the electoral college and elected officials that are supposed to represent the people. This is put into place so that the US and State Govt. are not runned by a crazed mob. The base that supports Trump and the right is exactly that.....a crazed mob. Therefore, our representatives should have done the right thing and rejected a Trump election at the national level. In a state like NC where there is a right wing power grab is currently in play, they will have to raise issues up to the US supreme court to unclog (if even possible) the mess that the right wingers have created in that state.

There's a huge difference between Iran and Sierra Leone.

Iran is a regional power with a great deal of influence, resources and strategic relationships. The people there enjoy a relatively high standard of living too. They also have much more potential for growth in almost all areas in the future, circumstances allowing of course.

Sierra Leone is a small population, bankrupt hellish place with atrocious living conditions whose government struggles to provide the most basic of services, thanks to Warlords and their lust for diamonds.

Just saying.

Representative Republic. Not a democracy.

This will one day work in the liberal's favor again.

Sadly this will by and large fall on deaf ears here at ATS. Every 5 posts seem to be about how wonderful Trump is how he and the Republicans are great defenders of all things right and good. So many members have bought hook, line, and sinker the staggering fraud that is Donald Trump.

I have relatives in NC. I'll say this, it's a beautiful state, but the general population there is straight up ignorant and racist. There's a reason why many graduates from UNC and Duke leave the state.

Let me help you.

It's crap because it's crap.

That you can bring up NC but completely blow off California just shows your bias.

Unless you want to talk about the left-wing push to do a run-around of the electoral college by promoting sanctuary cities and illegal votes in enough states to do whatever they want in a general election.

That wouldn't be your crazed mob though, would it.

Fan fact... google Democrats and Crazed Mob.

I'm off for the night because the topic is so far left-biased that someone actually promoting it online makes me feel sad.

I agree. I've visited this site for sh its/giggles over the last 10 years. From what I have seen, this site has become a cesspool of right wing conspiracy theorists that are crazy ignorant in last couple of years.

For people like me and you, we can easily see the result of having FOX News and their right wing AM radio talk show hosts infiltrate the ignorant and angry minds of these people over the last 20 years. The sad part is that they are so filled with BS that they have no idea what to believe anymore while their states are turning into straight sh it holes filled with welfare recipients, guns, and leadership that only care about themselves. That's a powder keg for disaster, but they don't see it coming.

If I admit that some of what you're talking about from the right might be taking place, would you admit that there's a whole lot more of it on the left? I live in Oregon, a liberal state. Talk about a goddamned disaster, thanks to what? Liberal policy.

California carries the financial dead weight that is NC. Don't ever forget that.

If you forgot how backwards NC is, have you forgot that the NBA is not having their All Star game in that state because of its repressive laws? Think about this for one second, the NBA has teams in many red states such has OK and TX. They have never threatened to pull their All Star game out of those states, but they did to NC. Why? Because NC has legislators that are hell bent on bringing that state and our country back to the 1500's.

Right or left, it's not perfect. But I will say this, I have relatives in NC and I can say with 1000% certainty that I would much rather live in OR or CA than that repressed state.

You do realize that the thread isn't really about Donald Trump at all, but rather another example of a liberal Professor that doesn't understand reality?

Please go read the OP's link.

And BTW, don't project. It is the left that needs "great defenders of all things right and good." All the right and center people want is someone who can DO THE JOB.

So... you lost the election. You lost the recount. You lost rigging the electoral vote. Now all you have to sell is "you've been sold a bill of goods because you're stupid and we know it because we're smarter." Even though you lost the election. You lost the recount. You lost rigging the electoral vote. You lost most of Americans.

Keep posting and I'll keep sharing your viewpoint to as many people as I can. Good thing you're the smart one...

Donald Trump is, in my mind, a frothing bag of vomit.

That said, the argument presented here is just dumb, and it seems the more I read, the dumber it gets. "the electorial college should have rejected Trump because the base are crazy"...that is 100% subjective. I have seen a LOT more crazy coming from the previously considered "intellectual left" now simply a hyper-communist anti-liberal bunch of over-reactionary idiots than most trump supporters.

Yeah, you got some real "winners" in the trump camp..filled with the worst sludge imaginable oozing around, but they are the ones lurking in the dark the right is trying to pretend doesn't exist. the lefts insanity are going right up to their vocal and reviered leadership. Wasserman Scholtz rigging the primarys, Lena Dunham the child molestor who regrets not getting an abortion as a top speaker for the dems, Madge offering BJs for votes, etc etc.

seriously, stop this "republicans are bad" crap and spend the next year or so taking the torch to these corrupt and disgusting people. Force it back into the party of contemplation and class.
Or spend the next few years ignoring the festering cancer growing in the left and watch a repeat preformance..yeah, Trump sucks...and America overall chose him and the republic ideals over the left..now consider that and adapt!

Most of us are aware of the stupid things NC is doing, but your hyperbole is way over the top. We have various topics on that topic already.
All in all you cannot accept the fact that the union and its people have rejected the democrats.
Republicans dominate all levels now, except perhaps the major city level.

Democrats and their socialist allies lost the war of ideas long ago, thus they attempted to stack the deck with third world immigrants. But they could not make it in time before alienating all of flyover country and those blue collar workers.
It was a big time gamble to go all in on multiculturalism, it caused that blue collar base to erode out of the bottom.
When the union vote is 52% republican in Ohio, democrats done messed up.

If Trump does well on bringing jobs home and real wages increase, this may cause union leadership to be forced by its members to extend the olive branch to the republican party. IF that happens consider the democratic party dead.

I am sorry that your worldview was shattered by the election.
Calling people nazis, racist, bigots, sexist has no power in this land, be gone foul beast, go back to the abyss from whence you came.

Lastly, You disgrace the investment website SeekingAlpha with that name.

The United States of America is governed as a Constitutional Republic.

Individual states are basically run Democratically. It is the popularly elected officials that then represent that state and it's interests on a Federal level.

Although, the elected officials are not bound to vote the same as their constituency.
