Evidently, the OP likes the idea of illegal aliens voting. After Hillary conceded, all the garbage votes starting pouring in.

Meanwhile, real President Trump is one of the most successful commanders-in-chief that we've ever had. If we can fix the voter fraud that's rampant out there, then he will easily win the popular vote as well as handily capture the Electoral College.

Definitions and implementation are two different things unfortunately

Each State's electoral power is imbalanced

It should be fair and equal every citizen should have an equal right to vote and each one of those votes should have an equal electoral power

Why do you oppose democracy?

You seem to not understand that this nation is a republic, not mob rule democracy. As a republic, voices are heard from outside metro LA, NYC, and Chicago. That's the way it was set up. Repeat after me: Republic. Republic. R. E. P. U. B. L. I. C.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic
In common parlance, a republic is a state that does not practice direct democracy but rather has a government indirectly controlled by the people.

There. All better now?

That you do not understand we are a particular form of republic as set up by our founders rather than a democracy, I cannot blame solely upon you. Blame has to also be placed upon that third grade teacher who was showing the kiddies how to stretch condoms over cucumbers rather than teaching matters such as history or government. (or math, or English, or reasoning, or philosophy, etc)

Why do you fear and oppose democracy?

Thus, as we can clearly see, representation in the Electoral College is in fact largely based on population, and in 2016 the same was handily won by your President, Donald J. Trump.

This unquestionably being the case, it appears that your fears have been allayed, and your misconceptions regarding this matter dispelled. You need not stumble blindly about in your intellectual fog any longer.

We are happy to have been of service in this matter.

You are clearly opposed to democracy what happened in your life that made you think that Democratic systems are bad?

I have some homework for you in reference to the population and voting power as it is clearly imbalanced...time to get your learn on

Ps... that's a cute little cartoon you posted

However I will make a few observations. The USA is not, and never has been a "democracy". Instead it is a constitutional republic.
It will take to long to explain the differences, but look it up for further edification.

As with our republic, we do not have a nationwide 50% + 1 vote that decides who our president is.
Instead we have 50 elections one in each state and that is how the EC calculates who wins by a margin of 270 or greater.
Again look it up for a better understanding.

PS - On a side note I must assume you are or are related to an Afrikaner. Regardless, you might find this thread interesting and want to comment in it;

If you think there is no genocide in South Africa, think again!



`

You know I'd like to hear your response to these important videos

https://youtu.be/7wC42HgLA4k

https://youtu.be/G3wLQz-LgrM

https://youtu.be/90RajY2nrgk

... and you are correct about one thing I am racially Afrikaans however I am an American by birth

Remember the hypocrisy of America's forced democracy Upon the white South African government

yet the United States does not use democracy to elect our very own president

The genocide in South Africa is directly related to democracy being forced on our nation by the United States

sometimes democracy can be terrible in the short run but in the long run it will be good as all the whites will flea and South Africa up will degrade into the crap hole that Zimbabwe is today

You see democracy makes the people responsible for what the leader does because they are in charge otherwise people can legitimately say we didn't elect that person and neither did the majority of our country thus we have plausible deniability

A true and legitimate democracy makes the people responsible for their actions

Don't worry little one, your mommy will bring your bottle soon.
I have to give it to you that is a very compelling argument....

I guess the narrative that I'm sad because my party lost should resonate with a fair amount of people except there's a problem

I'm not a liberal and I did not like Hillary Clinton

I love guns
I think religion should be taught in school
I believe in states rights and I hate political correctness with a deep passion

Just because you love really fake President Donald Trump does it make me a liberal

Some of us are just honorable enough to want to win fairly

Okay kids your assignment is to watch these three videos and give me a synopsis

I think the most important part is where they discuss exactly how many electoral votes each state has and that it is supposed to be based on population... however it is not and clearly makes the Electoral College an illegitimate system that results in REALLY fake President Donald Trump

In the US system, the president is not elected directly through a popular vote of the people, but a popular vote of the electors. This is what's called a representative democracy, since the people can vote the electors out, but cannot directly vote for the president.

This is not the only thing done that way. When a bill is passed, it's passed via the majority of the House/Senate - not the majority of the popular vote. If the people are unhappy, they can vote out their senators or representatives but not directly vote on the legislation.
