The only argument for the electoral college is an extremely loose interpretation of states' rights. 

If only "states' rights" wasn't always shorthand for "states' rights to do really stupid shit". 

If you're talking about sanctuary cities you have a point.

The north shit on the south. Why does the electoral college even exist. The north won the war. Why do racists have more power than everyone else when they were the ones that lost?

 

Lincoln was a white separatist, emancipation proclamation didn't include northern slave states (they were allowed to keep their slaves), after the civil war the so called northern "not racists" went out west, butchered Native Americans and enslaved the Chinese.

Earth to dildo... it was the 1800's, everyone was racist. The civil war wasn't about slavery, until the North (who was losing) decided that their best option was to create a slave revolt. This didn't happen until 15 months into the war.

Electoral college prevents mob rule. 

In literally no way does it do this.

Democracy is mob rule.

*People from "land masses" are shaped by their environment and vote based on their needs and culture. They shouldn't be able to steam role other states just because they happen to be liberal and you like it.

It's funny because after Obummer won you could find articles praising the EC. The only reason people are bitching is because Trump won.

Bitching about the EC and the second amendment for that matter is pointless. It will never change, and promotion of those ideas guarantees Trump a second term.

First of all, if the majority of the country liked Trump I would move. 

Secondly, of course they vote based on their wants. But the vast, vast majority of the people live in cities. Why should their vote count less? Of course if we had ranked-choice voting, shit like this would be far less of an issue. 

Third, lack of electoral college doesn't suddenly mean states can't pass their own laws. It never meant that.

Because the grand majority of the time, it's not a factor. 

Except when it is.

Why should some bumfuck living in the middle of nowhere have a higher voting power than some other asshole living in the city? Isn’t that called inequality?

Its very simple.

the bumfuck in the middle of nowhere is a family man Republican and the asshole in the city is a transsexual parasitic Democrat.  Our Founding Fathers created the EC to avoid having gender bender city slickers eternally controlling who the president is.

A good example of this is Colorado.   95% of the state is Red, freedom loving Americans but we are forever entombed by the California transplants living in Boulder and Denver.

He wouldn't move anywhere, just like the fat lady at my work who said she was moving to Canada if Trump won and didn't move.

The civil war was about slavery. The electoral college is about slavery. The south never changes. There needed to be a two state solution.

So basically racist rednecks have more rights than other people? 

None of this matters anyway, America is an oligarchy, voting doesn't do shit everyone gets bought out to work for the super rich LOOOL

Racist red necks may have more rights on paper, but they are poor, oppressed and starved of federal funding so its all good lol

If slavery were legal you can bet your ass I'd have a few.

 

 

Funny how Lemon spoke of moving out of the country, considering every other country that is worth moving to actually enforces their immigration laws and he would be deported ASAP.

Of course this doesn't exactly apply to me.  Having 3 citizenship's does have its benefits.

There are way, way more liberals, antifa, and anarchist wannabes like yourself that are poor and living on federal funding than conservatives. Conservatives actually have morals and values. Conservatives are hard workers and savers. Your kind are the ones who are debt ridden, over extended on student loan debt, credit card debt, and underwater mortgages. You're the scum of humanity. Conservatives are the greatest people of all time.
