Re: The Electoral College Was Designed To Prevent Trump. You Can Make This Happen.

Kocolicious ·
I think the most troubling is how some electoral colleges are forced to vote for the state's choice. For example if the electoral college is a red state that favors Trump, it is expected to vote for Trump. And visa versa-making it unfair for individual voting. Although Obama recommended Clinton concede early when it was clear Trump was winning, that move was extremely pre-mature as we see now. It is my hope that Clinton readdresses the vote count in those rust states that appears to be a...

I say that there should be a recount, especially in "red" and "rust belt" states, and in states that committed the most likely, illegal, purging of voter registrations, or and that "lost" ballots, etc., and in ALL states where the voting machines were switching votes from Clinton to votes for Trump. There should also be a serious investigation into Russian hacking interference. I really find it odd that Hillary would throw in the towel, give up so easily, especially against an opponent that...

I agree. We are supposed to be such an advance country and there is talk about Russia hacking the votes and those that you have mentioned. I wonder why no one was on the money in terms of professionalism, accuracy and fairness. They had enough time to ensure that the ballots, polls and such were in perfect order. I still feel this was a set up. But!

Considering that the President broke records in his 2008 campaign for raising money over the Internet from small individual donations and through grassroots efforts from individual Americans and supporters .... and is on pace to collect as much if not more in this upcoming election ... I would say that he HAS changed the way election fundraising happens. No other candidate had - or has since - received the kind of individual donor, non-corporate tainted money support that the President has.

There should be all kinds of platforms to vote. It's some serious "shyte" going on. I see 18 years olds registering. Use to be you'd had to drag them to the polls. I just remember when the freedom riders died so folks could vote in the South. So this is some deep shyte and it should be recognized as something that needs to be DONE now. Otherwise? Can't complain. Already Kavanaugh is agreeing with Trump regarding immigration. Who knows what's next. Abortion laws changed? Jim Crow revisited?

Between the UNCONSTITUTIONAL "gerrymandering", the UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND ILLEGAL 'purging' of REGISTERED VOTERS, along with closing half the voting polls in most states and/or last minute changing of where people go to vote, not to mention, the tampering with and/or RIGGING the voting machines to begin with, to enable republicans to continously "win" by STEALING ELECTIONS, it almost doesn't matter who's registered or how many people vote.
