the electoral college exists so we don't have one region of america dictating to the rest

This. In a nation as large as the US having a real democracy is just asking for a civil war.

no need to compensate for this when states like alaska and wyoming get the same amount of senators as new york and california. and the electoral college was created to give southern states more power against the north by counting slaves (as 3/5 a person) as part of their population.

This is where you would campaign and what would elect the president if there wasn't an electoral college (blue areas). Dumb if u ask me.

no, we wouldn't be talking about it if the person who got the most votes actually won. If hillary lost the popular vote you wouldn't hear a thing. this is the second time this has happened so it's a pretty big deal

pretty sure they do it in their free time? before or after work perhaps? do you honestly believe every one of these protesters is unemployed?

National popular vote doesn't count for shit bud. The point of the electoral college is that you have to win the popular vote for individual states. Stop crying.

Seeing as how horrible of a person Hillary is, mixed with the riots that her supporters have began I have no reason to have any of your class. Liberals are the biggest group of whiny entitlement junkies who were not spanked enough or ever told "no" as a child.
The liberal fascism has made me sick.


ok so because you don't like liberals you wish to tear a person down to tears. got it. this pretty much the definition of being an intolerant child.

Protesting for civil rights is acceptable. Protesting because you didn't get your way in a fair election is just whining and for some reason I dont ever see masses of right wing supporters shutting down streets n destroying shit.

yes they absolutely can. not only is there plenty of time after a normal work day to protest, but the people who are out there the ENTIRE night can and do get to work the next day. they might be tired but they can do it. I know i've never had a problem getting to work after going out on a weeknight or a midnight video game release

I can guarantee you the ones rioting live off the government and are more afraid of losing their benefits than anything else.
