I'm not on board with this.
I hope these two don't win the nomination. Or anyone calling for this.
I hope one of these moronic ultra libs do win the nomination, as it almost assures Trump's second term.
My belief is that, inorder to win the Dem nomination, any candidate will have to be so far left, they won't be able to move far enough towards center to win in the general.

S & F as it isn't really a topic i know much about, so all new knowledge is a plus.
However, as an outsider, could you explain why you think this is such a bad thing? As an outsider, the Electoral Colleges do seem rather unfair (in their weighting, etc).
Like i say, it is one aspect of your political system that i don't know beyond the very basics. I do seem to recall Republicans saying they were unfair in the past (but possibly that is just old age providing false memories!).

That's where I am, personally.
Along with "outright ignore any and all gun laws at your own discretion"
They are simply unenforceable. But any attempts to disarm Patriots should be met with the most severe consequences, up to and including regime change.
There is no action too extreme for preserving, protecting and defending our Constitution - including 2A, and including Article 4 Section 4 (which makes lesser systems of tyranny, such as socialism, patently illegal under the Constitutional order)
If Patriots play our cards right....

Im not gonna lie, this scares the absolute crap out of me.
TPTB are desperate because they see their long term plans evaporating and are just going all out.
I genuinely believe Americans need forget feelings and nonsense, think logically and choose a side.
Do they really want what the Democrats are offering? Not within generations but potentially within 1 year, if they had their way the millions upon millions of illegal immigrants who are in the country will be deciding your president.
What they are suggesting goes against everything your country was built on, they are traitors plain and simple.
If you cant support Trump at least dont support those who would change your democracy to get into power

Yeah, a few big cities, cities that do not grow or process the foods, will be enslaving all the people who do that kind of stuff. They will control the people who work for a living processing fuels for their vehicles and to heat their homes.
Beto seems to be a moron, supporting the entitled. You do not have to be rich to be entitled. Everyone should be forced to go on a farm for a week when they go to school, they will appreciate the food on their tables more and maybe forty percent of the food in this country would not be wasted after that.

There they go again. Proving that this nation was truly created by geniuses only to be ran by idiots. There is a lot of 'wisdom' in mob rule. Of course O' Dirt Eater isn't alone. Harris,Warr en,Cohen all agree with this stupidity.
Tuesday on MSNBC, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke was asked about his rival Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) call to abolishing the Electoral College for presidential elections in favor of a national popular vote.
Yay mob rule!
By the power of 'Regenerative' Dirt.
You will comply.
Can't win the legal way.
Change the rules.

The electoral college does not makes sense any more and the only reason republicans are super desperate to keep it because they would rarely win elections with the popular vote. It's dumb. The electoral college assures that people's votes do not count unless they are in swing states. If you live in a blue/red state, you might as well not bother voting. It's no surprise that half the country doesn't vote. A popular vote for president of the entire country makes sense to count every individual vote as an individual vote, not to water it down based on the size of the land mass in a state. That way people actually have the power instead of land mass. I can't believe anybody would actually support keeping the electoral college. It is the single biggest problem with our election system.
LMAO at comparing that to mob rule. It only applies to electing 2 people. What a joke. It doesn't suddenly turn policy making into mob rule. Slippery slope fallacy as always. Conservatives live off that fallacy.

You don't get that since the 1700's, the normal citizens of this country haven't wanted the biggest state(s) deciding the election for everybody? Without CA, Trump wins the popular vote in 49 states. What kind of sense would it make to let CA be the deciding factor in our elections? That's the entire purpose behind the electoral vote and why the founding fathers wrote it in. That was back when a 13 year old boy had more backbone and less fear than a 40 year old man today.
