    I figured out how to live with this atrocity for the next four years. I figured out how my mute button works. Course I still have to close my eyes or switch the channel to avoid nightmares.

    Check out the Hamilton Electors: citing Federalist 68 (written by Hamilton and quoted in this comic), they are a group of (so far) 7 Democratic Electors who have pledged to support a ‘Reasonable Republican’ if Republican Electors will join them and pick one. If enough Republican Electors do so, then this would throw the election to the House, where hopefully they would choose the Reasonable Republican.

    “Reasonable Republicans”? Huh? WTF? Let us know when they’re found. (Yawn!)

    Democrat Desperation Level: still palpable after this much time?

     

    The electoral college worked exactly as devised. It kept a corrupt, career politician from being coronated because it was ‘her turn.’ People were tired of 0bama’s destruction of the country and its values, and did not want another four years of it.

     

    The large number of takers in the major population centers could not override the will of the people- the republic is better for it.

    the will of the people is ONE PERSON – ONE VOTE.As envisioned, the number of electoral votes was in direct proportion to the number of representatives – but that was changed in 1910 when the number was fixed at 435. ..That change is WHY California votes are only worth about 1/3 of Wyoming votes..There is a larger population in LOS ANGELES than in the whole STATE of WYOMING

    Yeah, but the people in Wyoming are Real Americans™; the people in Los Angeles are … well … you know.

    The popular vote total is meaningless- it is a state-by-state affair. The World Series analogy is an apt one, if you want to Google it.

     

    Regardless, both candidates knew the rules going in, and that the nationwide popular vote total would be irrelevant to the race.

     

    Ironic, though, that that one who squawked about the results being accepted by both candidates is now the one refusing to accept them.

     

    I guess it’s just another Clinton lie- hopefully the last she tells as a public figure.

    Nope, sorry. The takers are out there in Red America. Go look at what states pay into the federal treasury compared to what they get back.

    The only one refusing to accept the results (besides Jill Stein) is Trump the Liar, who made the baseless claim that he would have won the popular vote except for the millions of fraudulent votes that were cast.

    Funny, it’s the one that has lost or settled in court over allegations of corruption over TWO HUNDRED TIMES that it being called the presumptive President-elect, not the one that has only faced investigations over six allegations with no charges.

    @Christopher Shea

    Yawn – that was not what I meant- but of course you knew that.

     

    As an incompetent politician once said, ‘elections have consequences.’

    I must have missed where President Trump requested meaningless recounts.

    Tom the bug has “original” correct, and it was to keep out “Brits” and other outsiders, as well as idiots away from power, granted the white, male, land-owning aristocracy had the power.

    Tumolt and disorder ARE the prime objectives of Trump and his supporters/appointees, and it’s back to the billionaire aristocracy, tax freed of course, who will treat the common man the same as in Hamilton’s day, serfs, slaves, and indentured, to them!
