Quoting the opinions of mainstream GOP that Trumpites spend their time detesting and deriding does not clarify anything?

A self-declared Neo Nazi won the Republican Nomination for Congress.

The GOP is either incompetent or uncaring in allowing it to happen. Either way it is complicity.

Not triggered at all, I just find it funny how far this place has fallen. One word over and over again, that's what this place chooses to reward these days. Lol.

Well, what do you propose? How would you reform the system to more directly reflect the will of the Republic? Take away the rights of the states to decide how they vote? A purely popular vote would be a disaster. I think that's clear just by looking at the voter maps. What's your proposal?


I propose we follow the Constitution. I have no issue with the Electoral College.

Again, the Electors are chosen based on State popular vote as it should be.

Your earlier claims about this system being a protection against so-called “mob rule” were incorrect.

What you call mob rule is what the Founders called the will of “We the People.”


I disagree. Mob rule is California and New York deciding elections for the foreseeable future because they can generate more votes. Removing the EC is anti-American.


no it isn't.....in Vermont, Wyoming, and North Dakota, 1 electoral vote equals approx. 143,000 voters.....in California, New York, and Florida, 1 electoral vote equals approx. 500,000 voters.......

www.slate.com...

I guess millions of voters NOT BEING REPRESENTATED in the electoral college is patriotic to you.....

Nazi?...hmmm.....taking kids away from their families, and not having or losing their locations would have never happened in Nazi Germany...why?... they tattoed numbers on the people they took away, and those numbers were recorded and filed.

Typically, though not always, anyone who refers to democracy as "mob rule" is usually only concerned with equity for "their side."

As we see from some of our friends here who were all about dismantling the EC in 2012 (Trump included) before they weren't (after Trump won in 2016.)

Funny, huh?

The issue comes in of course because House representation is based on the Census population, and the EC is based on Congressional representation (House + Senate). Each State gets 2 Electors because of the Senate.

CA has EC 55 votes and a populaton of 35.9 million means 1.532 EC votes per million people.

WY has EC 3 votes and a population of about 580K, means 5.172 EC votes per million people.

This was part of the compromise between larger and smaller states that created our Constitution.

The Electoral College assures a parity between STATES ... it has nothing to do with preventing "mob rule" as each State appoints Electors based on POPULAR VOTE.

Where may I pray tell did I refer to liberals electing Trump? And yes if you cannot see it you are blind. You will see through your own colored glasses. As typical on ATS the fence walkers to get stars and flags come out and try to dance with everyone. Here I take a stand without regard to who I insult or step on. Yes Marxism is on the march. It is all over the news. Socialist wins this socialist wins that. F#@kin commies. And no we are not all Americans. There are those that will refuse to follow rule of law and claim the moral high ground. In general leftist Democrats are seditionists and treasonous louts. Rhino bought and NWO paid for Republican idiots also exist. But after my rant you will still play the star and flag guy looking for pats on the back. None here may friend. This country is on the precipice of civil war. The Constitutional Republic will stand. Communists will be nothing more than a stain on the bottom of our boots. There is absolutely no compromising with socialist country ruining idiots.

If I don't agree with you I'm wrong. Nah.

You don't care who you "step on"? LOL, yeah, whatever. I bet you don't act that way in real life.

So now it's "Marching Marxism?" I thought it was "Communism on the March" a minute ago ... you seem confused. Marxism is philosophy, Communism is a governmental/economic system. I'm sure you're not interested in the facts though, huh?

Yeah, we are all Americans, even the blockheaded idiots who think they have a right to decide who's American enough.

You don't like Democrats? Whoopee. I'd guess most of them wouldn't like you either.

Now, that we've got the highschool popularity contest out of the way ...

Do you have anything aside from platitudes, buzzwords, catch phrases and immature whines to share with us?

If not, I have something, very quickly to share with you. Your post seems like a caricature of what you think makes one sound tough and all-American. However, in fact, all your post is displaying here is cowardice, ignorance and childishness.

But, hey, it's the Mudpit huh? Have fun Scooter.

Electoral votes are allocated among the states based on the Census. Every state is allocated a number of votes equal to the number of senators and representatives in its U.S. Congressional delegation—two votes for its senators in the U.S. Senate plus a number of votes equal to the number of its members in the U. S. House of Representatives.


California has 55 electoral votes...the three states you mentioned have 9. 3 each. The EC protects smaller states from those like California. Representation of the country as a whole not just because you have a large population.

The EC "protects" the smaller states from the larger ones? What, in case of invasion?

The Electoral College exactly mimics the composition of Congress with its two chambers (Plus 3 Electors for DC).

Each State has chosen the Electors based on the POPULAR VOTE in each State.

This has nothing to do with alleged "mob rule."

You are absolutely correct. In some cases such as comparing Wyoming to California the EC actually over compensates. A single vote from someone in Wyoming has the same electoral weight as between 3 and 4 votes from a single voter in California. When candidates overlook smaller states, that are not likely to influence the outcome of an election in favor of larger states with more EC votes, policy can be dictated by the state with the most impact on election outcome rather than the will of the people nationwide as a whole. That, in the simplest terms possible, is the problem with EC votes vs. popular vote. The thing is there is no requirement for a popular vote for POTUS. There never was.

History will record that President Trump was the first President to really troll his opposition on the interent, for better or worse.

The reaction from the Young Turks is the best, Cenk & Ana were the most salty of any that night.

Get over it; Trump won.



EDIT: OP denies making the comment; I take their word for it and have corrected my post.

The sentiment remains.





We will stop talking about Trumps win, when CNN stops talking about invisible Russian Boogeymen.

Don't be naive. Both candidates knew the system of voting and ran their campaign to get the maximum amount of votes under it. You just sound sore that Hillary lost. Face it, she would have lost under a one person one vote system too. She just ran an awful campaign and was a terrible candidate. The Democrats have to do much better in 2020. people like Maxine Waters are practically writing the next campaign ads for Trump's TV spots with their out of control rage and lunacy. The patriots in Wisconsin loathe the Democratic response to Trump.
