The Repubs are just like Trump--braggarts. They love so much that Trump won that they can't stop reliving the past. He won. It's over. Now it's time for him to start acting like a President, not a candidate. But since he can't seem to do that, all his supporters have is that they beat Hillary. So what? Every President beats somebody. It's over, people. Time to get to work and accomplish something other than bragging!!!

btw...in order for her to truly win the popular vote she would have needed over 69.6 million votes...she only got 65.8 million votes....why because in the popular vote she would have to have more than ALL the candidates COMBINED...Johnson got 4 million....so end the theory of Hillary winning the popular vote
If you're going to take away California then take away Texas and she still wins.

Relitigating--Again and again... Boring. Let's think about Russia and our latest super hero, Robert Mueller.

fly with me here as I try to explain this

Lets say we have the popular vote:

Candidate Smith says...."cities of 1 million of more with have all free education, housing, and food, which the natural resources will be supplied by all rural areas"

Candidate Jones says..."everyone is equal, will pay an equal rate of taxes, and education will cost the same nation wide"

so the election is held

Candidate Jones takes: almost every state minus the major cities
Candidate Smith takes: every major city

total 65 million(jones) to 70 million (smith)....(just rough numbers for an example)

so now the CITIES have made the choice, that CITIES get everything, and the rural areas are now their SERFS


would you be ok with this....because that is possible with the popular vote...that would be what they call mod rule
(I will continue in next post)
Now we are suffering the tyranny of the minority. The minority takes our tax dollars but the urban vote COUNTS LESS. As much as one third of a rural vote. That is a huge issue and one way or another, large states will find ways to become more independent. Think it can't happen? We'll see.

Amazing isn't it? They now want to discount 40 million people because they know Trump hates that he lost the popular vote.

This is true. And it should have been true 150 years ago.

It's also true for Britain.

Good riddance. California produces a huge percentage of our fruits and vegetables, thanks to our hard working Mexican farmers. We want to keep them. Illegals have to have more than a drivers license to vote. They have to be registered, which they are not. This duscussion has been litigated before on the C-D. Give it up, already.
Texas produces a huge percentage of our fruits and vegetables, thanks to our hard working legal immigrant Mexican farmers. We want to keep them. We love people from Mexico here in Texas.
