    That seems to support the notion of the EC to me.
    Both ways have their shitty parts but majority rules seems to make the most sense to me.

      Because reading is hard and BUILD THAT WALL!!

        Yes, AND another 90,000 votes in just three states changes the entire 2016 outcome. A 90,000 vote difference in three battleground states is the slimmest of margins and nothing to hang your hat on. Yet I'm watching it get used as the justification to not worry, the Democrats don't get the Electoral college works...what?

        Dump Pelosi? Democratic strategy doesn't work? Democrats don't get the Electoral college???

        Na...that's all bullshit. The GOP had just better get some work done, fast and stop getting so distracted (esp. by Trump's bullshit). They can't even figure out the fix for the ACA, their #1 issue for almost a decade.

            That's mob rule. The Founders spoke out against that too.

            Of course nothing stops any of the 50 States from being run that way.

            A Representative Republic is the best way to go, if you look at history. Are they perfect, of course not. But they are the best form we've seen.

              The Economist did a write up of the Georgia election: http://www.economist.com/blogs/democ...06/kick-ossoff

              If anything, from reading on this thread, I get that it's not that centrism is defunct. It's more that Ossof got a lot of outside funding and subsequently veered towards centrism (away from "Make Trump Furious"). Of course that would contribute to the appearance of the guy being under control of outside actors.

                That little bit of strategy was open to anyone.
