29 - Chao Te Ching

Those that would take over the world
and bend it to their will,
will get bent.
The world is full of would-be superheroes
and would-be supervillains.
Maybe the world would be better off without them.

Some lead, and some follow;
Some shout, and some whisper;
Some cry, and some laugh;
Some win, some fail.
The wise spags keep their head down
and let the cannon fodder do their jobs.

Also in 2016 people who lost by a landslide, after supporting a war mongering fracking neocon in both the primaries and general because she was "electable" hate the winners for "only choosing the other side because they think its going to win"

According to new figures released by The Associated Press on Saturday, Clinton received more than 1.5 million votes more than her Republican rival.

As of Saturday, Clinton had received 63,390,669 votes, while Trump received 61,820,845 votes -- a difference of 1,569,824, according to The AP.

Rounded off to whole numbers, that translates to 48 percent vs. 47 percent.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

This is the thread where Rodger has been splitting all my posts that get split anyways

And Im surprised that someone with so many very impressive degrees doesnt understand the electoral college. Trump has 306, Clinton has 232. This is a landslide.

Yes.  You'll find the post she was referring to further upthread, as they merge in date/time stamp order.

Both her post and yours that she was responding to came from one of the political threads.

Sorry got mixed up and thought she was trying to hijack another one of my threads.

The electoral vote was a landslide, the popular vote was pretty much even. That's not a win, that sounds like a cry for reform.

The electoral vote was a landslide, the popular vote was pretty much even. That's not a win, that sounds like a cry for reform.
Two things:

1) Would this reform extend to the senate as well? Because its the same principle and few people ever bitch about it.

2) This would have been no guarantee against a Trump victory this year and if it ever happens would not guarantee a lack of future victories. As he himself explained, he built his campaign around scoring electoral votes because thats what it takes to win. If the election was based on the popular vote he would have altered his strategy for that.

Also, think about this for a moment. California and New York being the big contendors seems nice, but the other two heavy weights would be Texas and Florida. I know you think Trump is bad, but do you really really want every Republican candidate from this point on basing his platform on winning the Texan vote out of necessity?

   Which brings us to the point of the EC. America isnt a homogeneous nation, it has a lot of different interests and cultures. Without the EC (and the Senate) America would be run by Texas, Florida, New York and California with the rest of us all just along for the ride. Do you honestly want this? Just because Clinton won in some alternate reality what if fanfiction where Article II vanished on November 7th?
