Exactly @12. The electoral college is only in question because Hillary lost. If the results were reversed, there is no way Hillary supporters would be discussing getting rid of the Electoral College. ( I voted for Hillary, though not out of enthusiasm, only to prevent a Trump presidency - and fuck this paper for blaming anyone but the candidate it supported and the DNC for losing this election.)
Right now, the popular vote doesn't matter, it's not the goal of the contest. It'd be like complaining about who won a football or baseball game based on the losing team gaining more yards or having more hits. But those stats don't matter.
And there is a practical reason why the total popular vote doesn't determine the winner - in a very close race every fucking vote in the country would need to be recounted. Elections would drag out forever.

@60/61 Do you remember what year that was?
This is truly awful. He is a predator in the vein of Bill Cosby - promising career opportunities to vulnerable young women, then intoxicating and raping them.
I'm so sorry to all the victims, and hate to think about how many more there are out there.

commented on Never Trump
This thread only proves @5 comment to be true. Hillary and her supporters are clueless and the election vs Trump will be close.
This election is so interesting because "true progressives" and "true conservatives" both hate their own party's candidate. A large segment of voters want an option C - other. Unfortunately the corrupt two party system will continue to fuck its citizenry further.

commented on Regarding Hillary's Private Email Server: So What?
@15 Thank you! Baume and the Stranger shilling for Hillary makes me want to take a shit on my own god damn phone I've stupidly decided to read this on.
This isn't an "oops, my mistake" fuck up of ignorance by Hillary that should be 'yadda-yadda-ed' over. Using a private email server was a conscious decision to hide her correspondence and went against all protocol of national security, which was compromised when she was hacked multiple times.
Do some fucking research as a journalist, this post and this publication is an embarrassment.
