"The people spoke on election day."

No, the people did not speak on election day!

The people, by a huge margin of 3 million votes, chose someone besides the Cheeto now in the White House.

We should never ask for more proof that, indeed, we are not a democracy.

The people actually chose Hillary Clinton to be the President.

But, if Trump is willing to call the rules of the Senate "archaic", then the people surely maintain the right to call the Electoral College "archaic" as well.

1. He is going to do something SO stupid that they will have no choice

But to get rid of him. It's hard to even imagine what it will be but it is going to happen.

2. It would probably have to affect Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell in a personal way?

We can only hope that they realize how much power they have between them?

6. He's ALREADY DONE IT. It merely needs to be revealed as an iron-clad case.


He and/or the Republicon Party colluded with the Russians. That was really stupid.

If only one colluded, both are by now complicit in the coverup. tRump's White House is stone-walling on Flynn documents. The Republicons in the House (Nunes) tried to sabotage the investigation. Mitch McCONnell blocked in the summer of 2016 telling state electoral commissions that they might be hacked or subverted by Russians after McCONnell had been told that by the intelligence services. He delayed sending the information to them until it was too late.

3. As I understand it...

around 40% of voting age people did not vote for anyone, so not for Trump
3 million more voted for Clinton over Trump
add on those who voted for Johnson and Green

FF45 is lucky he is in office.

4. The Russian people!! Via disinformation directed by Putin

Look at the FBI October press release. It says Russian disinformation affected the election and it was directed by the highest levels of the Russian government.

5. Imagine: Elections are by popular vote, then someone offers a new idea called "electoral college."

"Electoral college? Why? What would that accomplish? Are you nuts?"

10. So true!

It wasn't even a good idea when they made it. But it helped protect the status of the rich then and has continued to do so throughout our brief history as a ... *cough-cough *... "democracy".

So much for being the "shining city on the hill" for the rest of the world. Republicans never meant it anyway.
