It all started when JFK was assassinated. From Nov 22, 1963 and onward, morality in American society weakened steadily, the liberation penetrated the culture deeper and deeper with each passing year. The economic system first started breaking down in 1958 in the midwest but it spread to the rest of the country in the early-mid 1970s with oil crisis and stagflation. 1945 with end of WW2 to time of JFK before his assassination was a better time.

That's baloney. 80% is a ridiculous claim. The vast majority of people in the US are living a much easier life than those in third-world nations. Yes, there are problems with income inequality and it is amazing that we haven't figured out how to provide decent healthcare at an affordable rate for the many of our citizens but making outrageous claims like 80% of our citizens live like a third-world nation is outrageous.

No presidential candidate attempts to win the popular vote. It is a complete non-issue, as everyone agrees. Well, everyone who thinks it through.

IF the popular vote mattered, ALL presidential campaigns would be run entirely differently, focusing SOLELY on the large Metropolitan Statistical Areas:

NYC/Newark/Jersey City MSA -- 20 million people
Los Angeles/Long Beach/Anaheim MSA -- 13.5 million people
Chicago/Elgin/Naperville MSA -- 9.5 million people
Dallas/Ft. Worth/Arlington MSA --7.5 million people
Houston/The Woodlands/Sugarland MSA -- 7 million people
Washington DC/Arlington/Alexandria MSA -- 6.5 million people
Miami/Ft. Lauderdale/West Palm Beach MSA -- 6 million people
Philadelphia/Camden/Wilmington MSA -- 6 million people
Atlanta/Sandy Springs/Roswell MSA -- 6 million people
Boston/Cambridge/Newton MSA -- 5 million people
Phoenix/Mesa/Scottsdale MSA -- 5 million people
San Francisco/Oakland/Hayward MSA -- 5 million people

Everyone else would be largely irrelevant.

I know how the electoral college works.

That person was saying we were a democracy. We’re not. It’s not mob majority rule. And the election shows that. It’s a republic.
