Now really, is it seriously possible for any dyed-in-the-wool political party wonk to actually conceive of voting for the OTHER political party???


The 'electoral college' is not a deliberating body. They have no 'power' ~ it is a ceremonial function. They have MORE to fear by pissing off the voters that voted for their party's candidate by being faithless than death threats by the opposing party.

I wasn't fully familiar with the selection process myself, very interesting, and obviously VERY partisan also.
I guess any wishful thinking about large amounts of Trump electors moving to the H side is just that... wishful thinking.

What other way COULD it be, JR? The voter's will in any state could be over-turned if its electors were a free agency. The voters actually vote for the state's ELECTORS, who vote for the winning candidate. Voters are either voting for DEM or GOP electors. This is usually over-looked and that's what irks the ever-lovin' crap outta' my ass. The USA is a REPUBLIC, not a democracy.

Apportioning the number of electors by the number of congress critters in both House and Senate levels the playing field.

Remember ~ this is a STATES process. We still are a united collection of 50 states. The founders wrestled with this issue mightily. Even in their time plurality was a big issue. (tail wagging the dog)

Altogether, this really is an ingenious system. People only bitch about it when it doesn't go their way.

I recall these EC rumblings in the Bush Gore election, but they were short lived in comparison to this... whatever the ğck this was.
It's like Trump had to win 3 times according to the MSM.

Yeah, now Lizzy Warren wants to impeach him (hasn't even assumed office yet...) and RINOs McCain and Graham keep running up the false flag of a Russian Hack.

All of it is diversion from the truth of corruption and actually accomplishing something for the good of the country.

Article II, Section 4 of the Constitution says, "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

You're right - he hasn't assumed the office so I guess this is their first shot across his bow... http://occupydemocrats.com/2016/12/15/el...peachment/

Even if passed, no legislation can be enacted retroactively. As for McCain and Graham wanting to go down a nonexistent Russian rabbit hole, it just shows how much they love a good dog and pony show as opposed to enacting meaningful change.

Oh, it's asinine.

There is no constitutional requirement for a person running for or securing the highest office in the land to reveal his taxes or divest income.

Personally, I think one's taxes are a private matter. As for his businesses ~ hey, he can't run the country AND Trump enterprises, so I don't have a problem with him handing over his business to his kids ~ they're gonna' get it all anyway.

And when you think about it ~ anything that benefits HIS business interests are also going to benefit ALL business in the country ~ I think he's damned if he does or doesn't.

Trump doesn't NEED to get on the graft train. That's what's pissing off all of congress. They all get there poor as shït and on the backs of the voters and then screw the shït out of them so they can leave loaded to the gills with cash, benefits, favors to family members and lobbying gigs when they leave office, if they ever do.

Trump will probably be the MOST honest and ethical man to hold the office, simply because he has no need to be in it for himself. Crikey, he basically FINANCED his own campaign and it wasn't a drop in the bucket of his checkbook.

imo, we don't deserve him and he's gonna' have a helluva' time getting Congress to work with him unless the public get on their hind legs and spank the shït out of email and the phone lines to D.C..

Damn..will they ever shut up....
Pathetic Losers they are.

He's totally honest, and we are blessed! I don't foresee him allowing any conflicts of interest to arise, but I have to agree that he's going to be balked at by the RINO's his own party.

I don't trust lyin' Ryan or NWO Bitch McConnell any further than I can throw them. Indeed Americans are going to have to run this with emails and phone calls.

Like Plato said, One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. Time hasn't changed that at all.

It's really hard to watch the media darlings and the Dems grapple with their own demise and irrelevancy.

The Dems want to blame everything and everyone but their own failed policy and lord knows the ACA played a yuge part of the American peoples overwhelming rejection.

I've had to stop reading at CNN, MSNBC, Huffington Post et al. I just... can't stand the BS headlines anymore.

Hell, Huffpo was pretending Hillary was winning all the way up until Trump got the necessary 270 EC votes yesterday. sad2.gif
