If Donald Trump somehow regains his position after another crushing election defeat will Americans actually accept it again or will something more severe occur
You're trolling, and very poorly at that.

He won the election, and you know that.

Yeah he "won"

Just like gw bush

Rember what happened last time???

Thanks electoral collage thats SUPPOSED to be proportional to population but is not

You like the fact that someone in Wyoming has almost 4x more voting power than someone in California because you dont care about legitimacy

You care about victory

At any cost

meanwhile you invade countries to force democracy on them yet you dont PRACTICE what you preach!!!

and only for the Superbowl

So we change the outcome for the person who actually lost on points and give them the title and its only benefiting the same party over and over

then football would be like our elections

I guess you just cant trust every citizen with an equal vote huh?
That's not how it works......COACH!

The reason the Presidential election is different is because he is the leader of the United States, not the leader of the citizens. Too bad civics is a subject not taught anymore. When I was in HS everyone understood the differences between state governors and the President. Now they think they are the same with the President just a national governor.


His position is unique and he has a unique election process designed to make sure all the states he leads get a voice in their leader and not just a few big states.

Russia and China have far bigger problems than we have (I worked in both countries)...and they don't have Trump so that cripples them even more. China is the largest country in the world by population and is just becoming the world power they should by employing capitalism. Russia is the largest country in the world geographically and will always be a power that struggles. Trump is your President.
