unreal the amount of financial waste that comes with all these windbags.
Between Jeb and HC they spent $500,000,000 and didnt beat DT. These ass clowns arent coming close
HC spent close to $1.5B alone to beat DT.

Wouldn’t be surprised if Pete B moved up. He seems to have a huge head of steam lately. And isn’t a complete moron.
He is trending, but I predict he will finish 4th at best. He once said all lives matter, which is EXTREMELY problematic.

I wouldn’t vote for him, and I know most on here will hate him. Supports green new deal, gun reform, and Medicare for all. Also wants electoral college eliminated. Not a good candidate for the OC. Lol
Forget all the other dumb shit, if anyone legitimately supports the green deal they need to be shot.

To me, that's some of the funniest bullshit coming from the left. Get rid of the electoral college because it's unfair, but only last year did they strip super delegates role in nominating their Presidential candidate. However, the rest of that nominating process uses as a significant factor - wait for it - the electoral college.
But it's even MORE unfair than that. The Dems assign delegates to states based 50% on electoral votes for that states, and 50% based on essentially how many people in that state vote for the Dem candidate. In other words, the more consistently bluer the state the MORE Dems count that vote in their nomination process.
It's obvious to everyone that the electoral college issue is purely about winning elections, on both sides. It has nothing to do with fairness. But someone can support the EC purely on non-partisan grounds: it helps guard against state rights being trampled by a simple national majority/plurality.
I said this before, but it's incredible how many people don't understand basic civics and the purpose of the EC. Not to mention the fact we aren't a true democracy. Our founding fathers did their research and saw how a 100% democracy completely derailed ancient Greece. As otrap mentioned, if anything the EC should be reformed, not abolished. It's also interesting to see the left speak in absolutes as they always do. Even if we abolished the EC, do they think this will always be in their favor? Conservatives are outbreeding liberals and Gen Z allegeldy is leaning conservative. The same group that cries disenfranchisement with voter ID, somehow can't see the irony of a select few bubble cities making decisions for the rest of the country.
