I mentioned this would happen. They're doing on some sense of principle that the system itself doesn't work.

Which I think is all kinds of dumb. They should say they don't want to do it, quit and let the governors in the states pick new people.

Don't misunderstand me I believe the electoral college idea needs to go. This just isn't the way to fight it.

If I was one of them, I would do something too, if I could think of anything. Not voting for Clinton shows that it is not meant to be partisan.

I really think they should have been allowed to see some reports on the Russian interference. They are the last stop on the road for approval and they have not only the right, but the need to know.

RE: The Electoral College
Well, Trump just passed 270.

It's official.

Get used to it.

You still don't seem to get it do you, LDH? You're as childish as trump. Him winning the election or electoral college or anything else for that matter, doesn't mean it's a good thing for this country or this planet.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I disagree. He has some great ideas.

Sure, I'll grant that he has a few good ideas, maybe even "great" ones -- along with a lot of shitty ones. And he can't seem to make up his mind which are which. I really hope he turns out to be good for the country -- because the alternative scares the shit out of me. If he's bad, he's gonna be really bad.

Tweets about Vanity Fair and SNL don't count as great ideas.

He has one of the lowest election turnouts in history. Only 25% of the voting public voted for him. His approval rating already is the lowest of any recent president coming into office. He is starting off as one of the most hated, loathed and utterly despised presidents ever and it's not going to get any better.

You better get used to it.

Not quite sure why you're celebrating the fact that you just lost the electoral college vote. Consider

Their feet are in mud. Republicans will use their defection to spin it and that's all that matters.

They won. America lost. In four years we get to do it all again.

I'm tired of the shit.

I have little faith in that. Emperor Trump and his trumplings will pull out all the stops....
