Maybe we should get rid of party's too.


That is up to us... you know.. the majority of folks who DON"T BUY the game either party is trying to pull...

Independence... a second revolution.. we may not agree on everything.. but we agree our nation .
has been hijacked by folks looking out for everyone else but the folks..

Do they really think that the folks, divided as we are (with their help), are going to allow this to continue?

I think not... I have a good feeling that the PEOPLE will reject it... and purge the swamp....

Let's get back to a gov't that SERVES the people.. not.. the gov't we have.. a bunch of folk who think they ARE ABOVE US...

They work for US... not special interests... party doesn't matter until the SWAMP is Drained...

YMMV...

Almost every other western country has more than two parties.

People like OP are forgetting that this country is a union of states (United States, duh). It's not a whole country like France.

And Trumo would have had a completely different strategy and campaign if that were the case.

So no, Hillary would not have won.

Also Hillary did NOT WIN A MAJORITY OF THE VOTES.

Using the French example, it would have been a runoff since no single cadidate won a simple majority and Trump still probably would have won in the runoff.

Almost every republic uses a conventional election scheme. In the first round, if no one gets a majority of more than 50%, there is a run off between the top 2 and whoever wins the run off gets the win. Hillary didn't get a majority so it would have went to a run off where Hillary would have won. The US is the only republic that uses the bizarre electoral college scheme that does not take popular vote into account.


2016 is calling, it wants its post back...

Seriously, this is the kind of thing you discuss right after an election, this popping up as a new thread 3 months into term of the world's first Orange President just stinks of sour grapes...

Let me ask you a question straight off the bat after reading your post about what might have been if things had been different.

Hilary clinton is a cold blooded killer of innocent children and people she deems unworthy to live out there god given sentences of a decent life on earth.

Now. The majority (in otherwords "most") americans chose to have the honest, hard working man (Donald Trump, now president) elected into the office of the president of the united states of America (which happens to be the greatest country on earth second to none and the only successful union in Existance). So what happened on that cold november day in November is that We the people of the United states of freedom and amendments chose to have our leader lead us and we didn't vote for a "woman".

We voted for a man. The only decent man whos been president since impeaching out of office that kenyan born shenanigan shaker faker anti-freedom lover of all that is Muslim.

Now are president is Donald trump. President donald trump.

The sooner the left accepts that the sooner we can all move forward into the 21st century and nuke the freedom hating Kom Jong Jerkoff that hates us because of are freedoms.

Thank you for watching, stay tuned.

The EC is a perfect system for a large country like the USA. Its needs something so that rural voters get there voice heard.

The reform it needs is to ban unfaithfull electors. That would not have mattered in the last few elections but i can see it as a problem waiting to happen.

But a few counties in the Rust Belt can? We do need to talk about it.


I'm sure you didn't think it needed any talking about when Obama won.

Considerably more than "just a few", and quite beyond merely the "rust belt".

The electoral college worked exactly, exactly, as it was, and is, designed to.

Popular vote within each state, candidate who wins the state gets the votes. There is nothing broken. Nothing need discussing.

Look it up, so, too, does the US.

If those other parties would run better candidates, they might do better.

Nope, you're exactly the people true Republican's hate. Oppression isn't the same as 'acceptance'. The way your attitude sounds would never convince anyone to unify with your party(my party).

Nuking is the ultimate weakness of humanity. You seriously think a weapon of that caliber hits only 'bad-guys'? Disgusting. Compassion shines through every culture and diversity is a consistent character trait. People that talk about Nukes at all are fools, I'm glad Donald stfu when it comes to that. So embarrassing.

Actually you're(sp) wrong. Nukes are a physical reaction, something that's easily bested by other physical reactions and weaponry we have and can create. You must have missed the whole "we're progressing faster than ever" idea, how old are Nukes? And the Military is 5 decades ahead technologically speaking?

We will be melting matter with frequencies soon, we already have Microwave guns that can fry the brain of thousands of people in mob. Nukes aren't even the biggest 'bomb' we can technically create, idc if you know what Dark energy is, or Black holes, or vacuum decay is, but we can essentially blow up the entire planet if anyone Nukes anyone. The USA owns nukes strictly as another method to destroy the entire world if anyone else breaks the rules. If we nuke someone, it's because the end of the world has come. That is how our deterrent operates. Acting like a bully ontop of that is moronic.

Your a idiot.

Using nukes means other countrys will use nukes and we would all be dead.

The USA should only use them if nukes are used on them. That is how MAD works. Nobody uses them first so they dont get used full stop and we all carry on breathing.

And Japsn does not count. The USA was the only country at the time that had them plus the nukes where fire crackers compared to what they are today.

The USA and plenty of conventional weapons in its arsnal without using nukes.

Yeah but they don't and she didn't


That is obvious. This is an IF scenario, though. Why point out what actually happened?

If the US allowed people to vote for a better option, Hillary and trump wouldn't have even been in th IF scenario
Maybe IF the US was invaded and conquered by North Korwa you would have Lil Kim as your president
IF I thought your IF scenario deserved anything better I would have made a better comment

Why point out the bloody obvious that has been turned over and over and over in so many media outlets and already on this site
