Their political system is what sank the Democrats.
Sigh. The Electoral College system has been in place since the dawn of the Republic, so if the Democrats somehow forgot how their own system worked, then it sucks to be them. Anyway, their ideas on the EC are situational, see:
Slate published an article about how great the Electoral College is in 2012: …http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/view_from_chicago/2012/11/defending_the_electoral_college.html
Slate published an article in 2016 on why the Electoral college was an anachronism and could be quickly abolished: …http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/view_from_chicago/2012/11/defending_the_electoral_college.html
She got 3 million more votes than he did.
Again totally irrelevant. How many home runs did Peyton Manning score to win Super Bowl 50? And the Green Party exposed some pretty interesting examples of voter fraud in their quest for a recount, so I'd take that vote count with a grain of salt.
The essential point of the post upthread is the LPC seems to have taken the lessons of the Brexit and the US Presidential Elections to heart, and are looking to ensure the voters are not
going to be able to do that here in Canada. Can't let those deplorables
make decisions for the nation, now. Ibbitson's book "The Big Shift"
suggests that the ground is shifting under the Ontario-Quebec axis, or Laurentian Elites, if you prefer, and they are going to game the system much like the political elites in other nations and fight to the last taxpayer to maintain their positions, power and privileges.
To paraphrase Trotsky: You may not be interested in Politics, but Politics is interested in you.
When Canadians start rioting in the streets before the next Prime Minister is sworn in - or secret handshake or however they do it - THEN I will GAF about party politics.
Not sure why you feel the need to bring up Canadian party politics in this thread?
I said I am shocked and appalled by rioting. Guess I was not specific enough? My next sentence was, "Surprised? : No, can't say that I am."
Even though she got 3 million more votes, she's seen as damaged goods now, I suspect.
Kim Kardashian might have a better shot at it. And, after this election, who can say she is not qualified?!
