The System IS Rigged!

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?

  1. After every election that the Electoral College decides – there is renewed interest in getting rid of it. But since this election is over, either repeal it in time for the next election or those people should quit talking about it.

  2. Of course they won’t listen; when has any human ever listened?

    I’ll repeat one of yesterday’s pearls, to wit: ““Humans hardly ever learn from the experience of others.
    They learn – when they do, which isn’t often – on their own, the hard way.”~~ Robert Heinlein, Time Enough for Love

    In this case, I think your line re: “changing history” in re: The Dump, er, Trump, is as prophetic as the poem I posted today. His brand of insanity may just be the factor to push society off the wall, into the revolution long brewing, with nasty results for us all…. but, time will tell, as always. Me, I’m stocking up on my adaptability, and, ammo….
