Finally, it’s over. Well, all but the Leftist whining. They just carp and whinge incessantly, the crybabies! The fat lady is totally done singing. She’s now at home having a cup of chamomile tea with a little lemon in it as she gets ready for bed. All but the Leftist whining and kvetching are over. Leftist tears are delicious!
We dodged a freakin’ bullet, here. The reprieve from the Governor came as we were walking to the electric chair. I mean, do you think the Dow would repeatedly be at record levels if Hillary had won? Don’t be a blamed fool…
And understand that Hillary had more “faithless electors” than Trump. Double.
Still, I think this “faithless elector” stuff sets a very bad precedent, even though I like it that electoral college voters didn’t vote for Hillary more than they didn’t vote for Trump. I think that the electoral college was an extremely wise move by the founding fathers. We don’t want to be pushed around by the coastal elites. I mean, ALL of Hillary’s popular vote margin was from 1 state—California. And even then the Hillary vote was concentrated in a few areas. Think about THAT for a moment!
Though the electoral college vote wasn’t even close this time, in the right circumstances, faithless electors could be a real problem. It could very well lead to civil war.
I think the electoral college is very important, though I also think electors should be required to vote for the person to whom they are pledged. The goal here is to dilute the power of the large population states and to strengthen the power of lower-population states.
