So far the only thing positive, to my mind, that has come up of this past election is the renewed interests on the Electoral College.
My personal opinion, in case you have missed it, is that it should go…..I have been calling for its elimination for 30+ years….few listened then….but they seem to be caring a bit more these days.
This is a piece that explains the EC and the 2016 election…..
Donald Trump was right: the system is rigged! But it is rigged for the Republicans, not the Democrats, for conservatives, not progressives. And the result is the election of an extreme racist, misogynist authoritarian who may change the course of U.S. and even world history.
The question has been asked….if Clinton had won the election would we be having this conversation? my answer is…..probably not the Dems are just looking for an excuse…but of us Lefties saw this problem coming even before this election or the one in 2000.
Will they listen this time?
