I want to talk about the 2016 election. It angers me when I still see post blaming the Bernie Bots for spreading right wing lies or Russian collusion or Wikileaks or Jill Stein.
While I will concede that those things helped, the real reason Hillary lost was the Electoral College. You don’t have to win a majority of votes, only a majority of electors. That is why candidates campaign most heavily in states with the most electors. Quite often elections are decided in the east, well before the polls close in the west.
Think about it, Hillary won 3 million more votes than Trump, she should be president.
If not for the electoral college Trump would never have been president in spite of all the cheating. G.W. Bush would never have been president.
In order to have fair elections we have to:
1- get rid of the electoral college
2-get the money out
3-get rid of those damn machines and either go to paper ballots or mail-in ballots.
The system is rigged, it always has been. There are many other things we could do such as put the kibosh on gerrymandering,but what I have mentioned here would be a great start.
