  • Without the electoral college we would have had Hillary who totally destroyed Libya. She would be making a lot more of a mess internationally that Trump. I think you need to understand how corrupt the democratic party has become,. Its not what it should be. Dem party doesn't care about anyone (not saying the republican party does either, I'm just saying, dems are dead. The DNC is trying to shut up the two candidates who can actually save the country Sanders/Gabbard2020)

  • We are a Republic not a Democracy....a democracy is mob rule. If we had a democracy we would be ruled by the coast. I do not live in New York or San Francisco nor would I ever want to live in these cities. I would not want these people passing laws against my constitutional rights to suit their whims. Our power lies in our constitutional rights the issue is that the left is trying to erode those rights by making the people capitulate that we have to use pronouns (1st amendment). They want us to lay down our guns (2nd amendment). They want to do away with religion and control our news (1st amendment). I live in Alabama. I have lived in Ohio, West Virginia, North Carolina and California. I do not know where you call home but I ask you; do want the state of Alabama to make all federal laws? Yea neither would I just as I would not like New York and California to control the rest of the country. The electoral college works. No one in the electoral cast their vote differently than their district in 2016. Hillary thought that she could tapper off her campaign in key states and assumed that she would carry them but she didn't. Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Florida; 93 electoral votes that buried Hillary. The issue that I am seeing is that the left does not want a person of religion to push their morals down their throat but at the same time they (the left) want us to swallow theirs and I for one will not capitulate. I am free to raise my children and hold my beliefs as I see fit. My view of the world is how I-i-i see it and I have my own truths and I do not demand any one to see it through my lens. So take your spy glass out of my face....mind your own business and we'll get along fine but the moment that you try to demand of me through law that I have to kneel down to your truth you will understand why the left fears the 2nd amendment. Thank you for hearing me out. PS: Read what they are trying push through as law right now. "The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact"? 100% of the states that are backing this so far are Democrat held states. www.nationalpopularvote.com/state-status

  • Alexander Hamilton was concerned that “somebody unqualified, but with a talent for "low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity” could win an election. The irony is, this was the reason he supported the electoral college. How ironic is that?!

  • In this relatively new century, we have had 2 presidents, whose time in office will total 12 out of 20 years (unless trump is impeached & convicted-ha!) who were elected without even a plurality of the votes, much less a majority. This should be an outrage to all Americans, regardless of party affiliation, since the Electoral College could just as easily turn the other way. But right now, it favors the reactionaries who control the Senate, so they won't even consider voting it out.

    • @Progressive Frog By the way it's not global warming...it's "climate change" you are but a long list of fools that have enabled our government to tax us more. Soooooo I have 1 question while we the U.S. is taxing it's people for your green new deal how do you plan on getting the rest of the world to follow those exact same guide line. You listen to a hypocrite stepping off a jet plane that then tries to "educate" me on how this can be fixed. Let me guess Greta Thurnberg is your hero

    • @Progressive Frog I listen and watch multiple news outlets but it seems like you have not. True progressives are now considered middle right so are you a true progressive. I used to consider my self a liberal at one time but I found it hard to agree with an idea and or a party who says that because I have these views that are conservative I am no longer welcome.

    • "Jackboots in the streets"?? "Bullying old ladies"? "Go against science"? Sounds like right wing dictatorships and global warming deniers to me. And these are not progressives. You've got to start listening/watching something other than Breitbart, Fox and trump. Enough said.

      Progressive FrogProgressive FrogGün önce
    • @Progressive Frog compromise? I do not see any one on the left "compromising"? I turn on my TV and see jack boots in the street spitting on people and bullying old ladies. The majority? The majority live in crime ridden cities with no latitude for differing views. The majority have transformed our education systems in to left leaning think tanks teaching children in mass to go against science and or any semblance of morality. Where history and is being changed and civics is no longer "relevant". There have only been 5 US presidents elected with out the majority. I guess at the end of the day we have to ask ourselves do we want true freedom or do we want mob rule. Mob rule is great when it is agreeing with you but what happens when it doesn't? trvision.net/detail/video-Qw0AsBanu-o.html

      Benjamin BrownBenjamin BrownGün önce
    • Ahh, Benjamin, but what we have now is a minority pushing their beliefs and ideas on the majority of the country. And as for a real democracy being "mob rule," that's just a purposely inflammatory phrase which has nothing to do with a real democracy in a country as diverse as ours-it's all about compromise. If you look at our history or that of any democracy, you'll see that when the pendulum even begins to swing too far in one direction, it's counterbalanced. But it absolutely is NOT fair or reasonable for a minority to force its wishes on the majority. Such governments either fall apart or end up as the logical result-a dictatorship, with force as the only way to keep the majority under control. And the minority DOES have significant representation-in the Senate. That's the idea of that body. But, I'm not going to try to teach you a lesson in civics-nor even what the compromises that led to the Electoral College were about. We obviously strongly disagree on this matter, and I do understand your viewpoint.

I dont believe that Liberals would be so willing to toss aside our belief in the democratic process just to hold on to power. We tend to believe in the power of ideas to win back a majority, not lies and deception and cheating the system.

People who live in less-populated states do not have more important feelings. They are not more qualified. They do not matter more in any way. Thus they do not deserve more weight to their votes. Enough is enough. *Democracy isn't democracy if all votes don't count **_equally._* Not electors' votes. People's votes.

  • Oh my, you libs are REALLY getting desperate. For those of you in the comments implying the college exists to suppress minority voting, let me educate you. The electoral college helps ensure that balance for a large combined territory is in place. Also, consider that Trump lost the popular vote by an amount equal to half a major city. Those cities are Democrat strongholds, with rural areas thus always being outvoted. Also, the majority of the states in US elections run by the idea that the popular vote winner of that state would win its electoral votes. Thus, California, highly populated, highly liberal, does not suddenly become a gigantic benefit for the liberals. It makes candidates go outside their cities and go see the rural areas and the inner country. If it ran by direct voting, no one would be travelling to, say, Utah, or Ohio. In the case of the 2016 election specifically, It prevented all you finatical extremists from drowning out the voices of the population of reasonable, educated voters. That's why these people are against the electoral college, because the political equaIity it imposes lost them the control over our nation they so desperately hungered for. It forced the entire country into the equation, which no reasonably minded person can say is truly a bad thing. Its not about racism, it's about equality. The founders of America knew what they were doing, stop acting like you know better than they did, especially when you most clearly don't.

    • @J.A. Bristol Thank you for the sentiments. I never saw her after high school but knew her well in school as we had many classes together, she was on the homecoming court and very sweet, beautiful and popular. We have always had guns in this country but never the mass shootings until the last 2 or so decades. Something is fueling this crisis and it's bigger than guns. Yes of course your point is well taken that any barrier is a help but it won't stop the shootings. This is also an almost exclusively MALE phenomenon. I honestly think if it were females doing all these killings guns would be outlawed, at least the majority of guns would be.

      Bonnie ParkerBonnie Parker21 gün önce
    • Still, the background checks would help make it more difficult for people with those issues so they'd still be a net good even though they don't totally eliminate the issue. I don't know how distant of a memory this incident is or how close you were to this woman but politics aside, I'm sorry for your loss.

    • @J.A. Bristol A woman I went to high school with was killed by her son in Bondurant, Iowa a couple years ago. He also killed his sister and father with a gun he borrowed. He had mental issues his whole life but in Iowa there are very few beds available in mental facilities. Former Gov. Branstad had shuttered many of them. Anyway, there have been some high profile cases where the guy killed people or himself due to inadequate help and not under needed treatment that family members begged for before the incidents. The case of the woman I knew in school would not have been helped by red flag laws or background check since he borrowed the gun from a friend.

  • Canada's electoral system leaves a lot to be desired as well. Due to our "first-past-the-post" model, a party can capture a majority of legislative seats with as few as 40% of the popular vote (we have a multi-party system here). Attempts at electoral reform ( to adopt some sort of proportional electoral system) have, so far, been unsuccessful.

The "democratic" party is obviously still using an extremly similar system to elect their presidential candidate. Electing representatives just to vote? Sounds much more republican than democratic to me. How can you hope to reform a broken system when the people, who are supposed to do so, can't even get it right on their own home turf? :(

It would give every presidential candidate a reason to campaign in every state and try to acquire every single last vote.

But before you promote choosing a head of government based on who has a majority in a national legislature like Canada, look up how seats are assigned in Canada’s Parliament. It’s utterly Byzantine.

    • @Luvenia Vaughan wen say republic I am not describing a political party, I am describing a system where there is an informed person at the helm who is an employee of the the citizens. Mob rule is the same as corporate monopolies. They control the largest stake and therefore control the entire reality of that spectrum. Without the electoral college, politicians will stay in new York and cal and Texas only and the give mind of those cities will stay in control. Politicians are not meant to help or hurt these centers but to dictate whether the policies and ideologies are beneficial to the U.S. and the average person can't do that job because they have their own personal problems to deal with

    • Kid Buu, SO YOU are saying that ONLY the Republicans should elect the President. I would love to hear how you associate the MAJORITY with MOB rule in this case. If what YOU say is true we should do away with elections and just let Republicans rule. There is a huge difference between a MOB and VOTING Americans. YOUR way is a RIGGED election, not a fair election. History has SHOWN us the kind of government the Republicans want and it has NEVER worked for the majority of the people.

      Luvenia VaughanLuvenia Vaughan25 gün önce
    • @Luvenia Vaughan my state is new York. The inherent problem that plague democracies is mob rule and that is why the USA is not a democracy it is a republic. The idea is that society would hire people to keep track of politics for them because politics is time consuming and there is not enough time for a citizen to become well versed in every aspect of politics and stay updated unless they do it as a job. Democracy is basically the popular vote and the popular vote is basically mob rule. If your doctor says you need surgery but all of your friends say you don't, who do you trust. The correct answer is not always the one with the most support. 800 years ago, the popular vote wud dictate the earth is flat and you wud be put in jail if you disagreed

That is the real reason they gave us the electoral college, so they could CONTROL the elections while giving the voters the FALSE idea they were making the choice.

  • A bunch of guys thought out a system of government hundreds of years ago. They were so smart the country that they founded became the most powerful and rich in the world and their system was copied by most other modern states. We call them the Founding Fathers and we deeply respect their wisdom. Forget all that they were a bunch of idiots with no vision and no accomplishments.This brilliant talk show host clearly knows better. We should take her advice and change the system that made us into the greatest nation in history, hers will be much better, I guarantee it. I'm sure she understands all the differences between a direct democracy and a federal system and all the nuances and considerations that such a change would imply. I'm willing to bet Sam Bee, as this titan of thought is lovingly nicknamed is well aware of all the pitfalls and drawbacks of governing a very large and diverse federation of states with a direct one turn election. She has thought out all the possible outcomes and has concluded after years of debate with other geniuses of her caliber that our system, as stable and successful as it has proven to be, needs a change. Let's do it, what could go wrong?

  • If you really want to keep the Electoral College, make it more fair by requiring states to split their votes based on how the people of that state actually voted. Some states do it already, but most don’t. This way Reps in California and Dems in Texas will have their voices heard. Is that what democracy is? Fact is, your vote shouldn’t depend on where you happen to reside. We should all vote as Americans, not New Yorkers, Californians, Texans, etc. And yes, I know that won’t happen because it would require a Constitutional amendment. Currently, the Constitution lets the states decide how to cast their electoral votes. And neither party wants to lose their “sure thing” states.
