"The electoral collage was (among other things) a means for slave states to be able to count slaves so as to have more votes than just white citizens.  It never made real sense and failed as early as the 4th time we used it.  I was just one…"

"It seems to me the media as a whole is desperate to have a normal president they can report about, so as not to appear to be in a constant state of editorializing about what a fucking lunatic he is, which is what he has proven himself to…"

"As I stated in my piece, Terry McKenna, the system (i.e. The Electoral College) may have elected Trump, but the American people as a whole did not. That's why I continually call for changing our presidential election system to popular vote by…"

"He's such a populist that he closed a casino (during the campaign, mind) throwing 3,200 people out of work. Why? A labour dispute. Yep, a real man of the people, standing up for working folk. My new meme: "Elect a Clown; Expect a…"

"Terry's last sentence is the best synopsis of Trump's election I've ever read. The win was not an accident for the guys working for him. The serious irony here is that Trump has proved Obama's assessment of him at that…"
