That Electoral College Thing

I used to also think presidents should be decided by popular vote, decades ago. Since then, I've realized the popular vote isn't all that great a thing, either, and I kinda like the idea of the states electing the president, despite how clunky the current system is. I say clunky because I couldn't exactly explain to the wife how it worked last month.

Reason magazine's David Harsanyi seems to feel the same way and takes a critical look at calls to abolish the electoral college.

To be sure, if the situation was reversed with Trump eeking out a slight majority of the popular vote, we wouldn't hear a word from the Democrats about abolishing the Electoral College.

Wow! Nothing like taking a hypothetical situation and declaring what position the Democrats would take had they benefited.

For the record: Donald Trump, in 2012 stated that the electoral college should be abolished. Now that he's the beneficiary, it's perfectly alright with him. That's the only flip flop that is on actual record.

Your hatred of democrats keeps shining through, Fred, which, in case it hasn't dawned on you, negates any reasonable attempt to pass this blog off as anything but a completely biased personal diatribe. Might as well be infowars.

Dems thought they had it in the bag, between their sanctuary cities, ballots handed to all illegal foreigners, and rigged ballot machines. They are still crying over their loss. By destroying the Electoral votes, the remaining non infiltrated states will lose their vote.
Southern Calif has been building housing like crazy, in prep for the next huge illegal invite. They are planning to harbour millions.
Let's hope Calif seceeds before the next election.
Trump is a liberal, not a constitutionist.
