I mean, you would too if your candidate won the popular vote and still didn’t get elected, right? But in all honesty, it’s been the system we’ve used for presidential elections in this country since our constitution was written and adopted. And for the liberal left that is all upset that Hillary Clinton got 1.7 million more votes than Donald Trump, the lesson is easy…get your people to move to different states!
Look, I am super-happy that Clinton lost the election, make no mistake about that. Having that witch in the White House would have been a bastardization of everything this country stands for. I don’t believe (and I could be wrong about this), we’ve never ELECTED a criminal to the presidency. Certainly we’ve elected candidates that have stretched the truth, backed out of campaign promises, and didn’t do what they said they were going to do once they got into office. But never in the history of this country, have we had a pair of candidates so ill-equipped to take over the reins of government. And never in the history of this country have we had one of the candidates under investigation by federal authorities as the campaign was going on; the only reason that they weren’t indicted was a political move by the party in power…hers!
So, the electoral college was devised because quite frankly, the founding fathers of the country didn’t trust the people with a direct vote to the presidency. Now, that was then, this is now. But the mere fact you’ve got a bunch of people that were supporters of Hillary Clinton that didn’t know any of the stuff she had been involved in, and didn’t care about the recent stuff, is evidence enough that the founding fathers were smart well beyond their years! Now add in the simple fact that if you didn’t have the electoral college, and all you did was have a popular vote, your state probably wouldn’t matter. The only states that would are New York, California, Illinois, and Texas. That’s it. So if you live in Ohio, or Wyoming or God-forbid any state in New England, you might as well stay home on election day because you just don’t have enough people in your state to matter.
So yes Virginia, it IS possible to win the popular vote and lose the election. That’s what happens when you have a system that is “rigged” against four states having enough of a population that they could sway the election (and three of them are heavily populated with Dems). And no, it’s not unfair. It happens to be the way we’ve gone about business in this country since we were founded. So, Jill Stein and her recounts, and Hillary and her sore-loser mantra, can call it a day. Like it or not, Donald Trump will be the president. Even Hillary’s campaign is saying that any recount isn’t going to change the election. The vote total in the closest state being contested is 10,747 votes in Michigan, and there has never, ever been a recount that changed an electoral victory of that proportion. Forget Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, where both are needed to sway the election, and both have wider gaps than Michigan. This one is over. Get on with life and stop your bitching!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
