The entire nation of Canada, if compiled to a single state, would have less electoral votes than California due to a population difference of nearly 3 million.

Perhaps Canada ought to let California elect their PM then. As I glance at the state, I can see how the electorate of California is a fount of endless wisdom where their knowledge of wise governance is concerned.

The authoritarians that are engineering this coup attempt disregard the Constitution on a daily basis.

What do you mean against the will of the electorate? Trump didn't win the popular vote.


What was that about going against the Constitution? You do realize that in the COTUS, the will of the popular vote means precisely squat when it comes to the president. He has to win 50 different elections, one in each state, not simply be the most popular guy in California in order to be the president.



Its a sad day when I have to explain the difference between an electoral victory and will of the people....

See, that 51% of folks who didnt vote for Trump are the majority will of the people. The electoral votes arent people, as dissapointing as that may be for you.

FYI "Lefties" are finally about to go on defense, after REAL Quid-Quo-Pro, Extortion, Collusion, and Blackmail committed by their leadership and MSM, is revealed.

And since the only real returns that had yet to come in when I went to bed were the major California returns ... you're talking about the will of California which, last I checked, is one state in 50 no matter how many people cram themselves into its borders.

In the rest of the country, it wasn't even close.

Same, I did grow up in a part of the country roughly a decade and a half behind the rest of the world, so my cultural reference points and whatnot play older than I actually am.

I believe the reason the DNC is (at least publicly) embracing Socialism and far more Progressive Leftist ideals is to bring in the already indoctrinated recent college graduates into the DNC fold. I don't really think they even agree with any of it, it's just a ploy to get more people used to voting Democrat because they believe once they've got them they can keep them.

The DNC has been promising people whatever they want to get their votes since the beginning, but only extremely rarely do they ever follow through. Ask minorities how many promises the DNC has made to them that they've actually kept!

By the rules of the electoral process for president, their votes only count for determining where Cali's electoral votes go, so, yeah, as far as the rest of the country is concerned. They don't matter. If they want a say in how the rest of the country votes, they need to move out and go and vote in the rest of the country.

Of course, the whine I hear then is that their votes won't matter because those states are all too red.

So they aren't happy either way.

Can we start gerrymandering the state borders like they do within the states so this or that party can have an advantage in the congressional elections??
Maybe a few decades of having to rewrite envelopes because we cant keep up with what state we are in will get us to realize just how crazy we've allowed things to get.

Oh BS.

Here’s the inconvenient fact. You guys keep whining that the EC system with first past the post is more fair, when in fact, it’s virtually EXACTLY the same as the raw popular vote. States have votes based on their POPULATION. The only thing that happens in the current EC is that the voters in the minority party at any given time are disenfranchised.

How is that fair, or reasonable, or equitable? Answer, it’s not.

More States will pass proportional voting as time goes on. System working as intended.
