Trump is not just fake, he is not right for America.

All good con artists are very intelligent

Really fake President Trump is a corporate stooge

Big corporations have taken control over our government through organizations like ALEC

Donald J Trump is President of the United States of America.

The rest of you are piddling around on a message board posting about what a loser he is?

See anything wrong with this picture?

But they are trying their best to rule the majority, with the latest ruling the electoral college delegates aren't even accountable to the popular voters in their own district. Now they are subject to bribery from deep pockets.

Lincoln won the 1860 election with less than 40% of the popular vote. He won over whelming the vote by the electoral college.

Who on the left of the presidential candidates are right for America?

Sanders unveiling a $13 trillion green deal or a $33 trillion health care plan? Or Biden who is quoted in saying 'truth over facts' among his other goofy statement and flip flopping pandering?
In fact the majority of democrats running for the presidency wants free health care for illegals.....give me a break.
The democratic candidates can connect with their progressive/socialist base but I don't think they can connect with the majority of the fly over American people.

And republicans aren't? It was a person who refused to vote for Clinton and wanted to vote for Kasich that drew the suit.

EC delegates shouldn't even be needed.

One person. One vote.

This is exactly what I was implying.


I can see this leading to serious widespread violence if the deep pockets read this as open season to buy votes from the delegates.

Clearly you don't or else you'd support the Electoral College.

Going to a straight popular vote as you advocate would let the populous states run roughshod over the non-populous states. Why do you lie and claim to love state's rights when in fact you hate them?

How would California "run roughshot" over Wyoming??

Thats the whole point of states rights...you do you

Don't be worried about a California liberal coming to force you to live a certain way in Alabama

States rights are all about democracy and Liberty

I know those are two things that you're not comfortable with but if you give them a try you might be surprised

You can marry a goat in California and they can put you to death for taking the lord's name in vain in Alabama...whatever

I know where I'm moving but then again I love goats

Dude, just admit you hate state's rights and want to do away with them. There's no point in keeping up your lie.
