OP, "I didn't like the POTUS results; therefore, I want to change the rules so that if the election is the same in 2020, Trump won't win. Don't change everything, just the things to stop Trump."

Lol

Gosh, does this mean you won't vote for him in 2020?

Be sure to tell us how you really feel.

And if the majority wants to enslave a specific group in the minority?

No, but I would take a popular vote for president.

That would still be representative democracy (i.e. electing a leader to make decisions for the public rather than voting on all such decisions). A lot of cons miss that point as well.

No it wouldn't. Only Metro areas would be represented. All others would be subjugated to their will. That would be a disaster. The only reason you want this is to insure Democrat Presidents from now on, and because HILLARY LOST. Get over it.

Yet another con that doesn’t get it.

YES it would be representative democracy, i.e. electing a leader to make decisions for you.

Also completely wrong on who would be represented.

ALL people would be represented equally.

One person, one vote.

Not a hard concept.

Yes, but they rejected one person, one vote for a reason.

Not a hard concept.

You are clueless. We are a Republic, and collection of states. It was never intended for individuals to elect Presidents. STATE ELECT PRESIDENTS.
