Trump cult followers don't care about the constitution, obviously.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76572180


So how is Trump changing the constitution, moron?

That takes a constitutional amendment passed by congress and 2/3 of the states voting affirmative on that amendment.

That is not trashing the constitution. That is the standard amendment process already done many times.

Learn some civics and history. Trump can't write an EO and do away with the Electoral college.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77480741


I think the mere suggestion this is ok by your golden goose is the problem . Whether or not it will happen isn't as scary as Trump saying the coasts full of communist sympathizers should decide who will be potus .

Imagine Socal , the northeast metroplex , chicago miami/orlando deciding who the president is ? Trump says ... Good to go on that .

Totally effed .
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76857890


My goose? How about, fuck you, you blue collar, meth head cock sucker?

Trump is responding to and trolling the people already changing state laws to give the states's vote to the popular vote winner. Already happening. An end run around the constitution.

Trump is saying, bring it on. He'll win regardless.

Asshole.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77480741


Except he won't . Let me spell it out for you in laymen crayon .

If there is 20 people in the US of A and 9 live on the west coast , another 9 live on the east coast and they all think Che' Guevara should be potus and the 2 left who live in oklahoma think John F kennedy should be potus ....


Che Guevara wins .

Campaigning for the Popular Vote is much easier & different than campaigning for the Electoral College. It’s like training for the 100 yard dash vs. a marathon. The brilliance of the Electoral College is that you must go to many States to win. With the Popular Vote, you go to....

....just the large States - the Cities would end up running the Country. Smaller States & the entire Midwest would end up losing all power - & we can’t let that happen. I used to like the idea of the Popular Vote, but now realize the Electoral College is far better for the U.S.A.

Yeah, we know that.

The question is if every blue state changes its laws to give its votes to the winner of the popular vote, how is the country going to deal with that end run around the electoral college?

That's the danger. There is no danger the constitution will be changed.

"“Remember, we won the election. And we won it easily. You know, a lot of people say ‘Oh, it was close.’ And by the way, they also like to always talk about Electoral College. Well, it’s an election based on the Electoral College. I would rather have a popular election, but it’s a totally different campaign,” Trump said. “It’s as though you're running — if you're a runner, you're practicing for the 100-yard dash as opposed to the 1-mile.”

“The Electoral College is different. I would rather have the popular vote because it's, to me, it's much easier to win the popular vote,” he continued."

NOW is when the Electoral College is totally necessary. The rabid left is bent on obtaining power and the only way to do that is to rig the coming election. Once in power, the U.S. would be a communist dictatorship.

The Electoral College was created to prevent that. It will always be relevant in the U.S.

The Founding Fathers established a constitutional republic for a reason. They, unlike many of the dumbed-down victims of this educational system, had read Plato's "Republic" and understood how a pure democracy can be tyrannical.

Maybe Trump should do the same.
