    This reminds me of all the over reactionary fucktards who whine the two best teams aren't meeting in the Super Bowl or Championship and so conference structures need to be abandon.

    25 years ago it was eliminate the NFC and AFC simply because The Cowboys and 49ers were meeting in the NFCCG and not the Super Bowl.

    15 years ago it was the eastern and western conferences needed to be eliminated because the Lakers and Spurs were the two best teams and should meet in the NBA finals and not the conference finals.

    You don't blow up a system that works simply because of one exception that was always understood could happen and was accounted for in the system.

    The framers weren't stupid people - they absolutely had to understand the very possible scenario where concentrations of votes in specific states would mean the overall vote was different than the electoral college vote. In fact that's why they had the EC in the first place. The system is working as intended

    Donald Trump is more liberal than Hillary Clinton will ever be.

    I think you're exaggerating a little.

    It's absurd. Not to mention it has only happened four times prior to this election, and this is the only the second time since 1888. Hilary destroyed Trump in the polls in California and New York (not to mention she would've lost New York if not for New York City). Democrats are looking like a bunch of crybabies right about now.

    Plus there's a large pocket of people at these protests whom have probably never read a thing about either of the candidates. It's obvious that people show up to protests to act like morons without repercussions from police officers. There were actually several 'protesters' interviewed that had no idea what to say other than blurting out 'fuck her right in the pussy,' to try to capture their five minutes of fame.

    Yes, protesters doing those things should be arrested. The peaceful ones should be left alone.

    It's also the second time since 2000. As we can see, there are idiots on both sides of the spectrum.

    If the Democratic party has any sense, they'll reach out to working class voters and seriously this time. No more Clintons, elitists, Wall Street sympathizers, etc. Let Bernie handle the next couple years and find a real people's candidate to run in 2020. Yeah, Bernie's a socialist, but as Trump has shown, and I'm not being sarcastic, sincerely caring about people is more important than well thought-out policy. If Trump fucks up, and Democrats learn their lesson, they'll take power back quickly enough. And if Trump is a good president, the Democrats can still embrace the working class again because a large number of Republican politicians don't.

    Why? Because republicans are holy and have their shit together?

    GTFO with that bullshit. The amount of garbage Republican Presidents we have had in our recent history overwhelms the bad dem ones.

    Anyone with Ted Cruz representing your party loses.

    Been a lot of reports of Trump supporters feeling emboldened and harassing black people, Muslims, gay people, etc.

    I wonder if trump will be at the kkk rally tomorrow?

    Also I'm surprised no one is talking about Russia today saying they were in fact communicating with the trump campaign. Trump repeatedly played dumb whenever someone mentioned Russia during the campaign. I wonder what was discussed behind closed doors.

    Lastly Sarah Palin might make a come back. This time she'll be on trump's side while "crooked" (cough) Chris Christie helps with picking the individuals. This trump presidency is shaping up to be pure comedy.

    One more thing, that big beauty wall might turn out to be a little fence if it ever gets put up. That'll be a massive waste of time and money because it won't stop anything.
