Would we have seen tears and protests if Hillary had won the Electoral vote and Trump won the popular vote???

Protests?  No!  Because the system worked "correctly" of course!!!

Tears?  You bet!  Tears of joy, of ecstasy, while they are enraptured in their Nirvana.

 

The teddy bear and play-dough toting snowflakes (many of whom didn't even vote) protesting to change the Electoral College system do realize in another election the outcome could be the reverse . . . . .

 

right??

Of course Democrats are inconsistent on this. And of course, Republicans would be just as inconsistent and absurd if the roles were reversed. Don't forget that many of the Republicans supporting Trump in spite of his sexual escapades were the ones saying a few decades ago that Clinton's sexual problem disqualified him from the White House.

Very true. But tu quoque.

If this were a debate and that was my way of attacking the author's argument, yes it would be a logical fallacy. But I am not debating. I am merely pointing out some hypocrisy and absurdity.

The hypocrisy  of the Republicans is true. Even Gingrich admitted it.  Also STARR showed his true colors.  Trump is morally bankrupt unless he truly accepted the Lord.  Time will tell.

 The Republicans have a lot of morally bankrupt leaders ie Gothardite Congressman Daniel Webster.  One thing I do trust is Trump is smart enough to know he has a great VP in Pence.  Trump except for his pet peeves is going to let Pence and Ryan run everything.  My prediction if the economy does well under Trump he will bow out for a second term and push for Pence to run as President.  I guess in 4 years from now will see.

For those of us in Wisconsin, this is nothing new. You might recall the protests at the state Capitol that sometimes amassed tens of thousands of angry liberals and persisted for months after the Republican governor and legislature passed a law affecting collective bargaining rights for state workers. The fact that it cost the state hundreds of thousands of dollars in cleaning and repair costs to the capitol building and put conservative legislators in uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous positions didn't matter to those "tolerant" and "compassionate" lefties. Since the Republicans in state government held their ground, the protests only served to expose the liberals' inherent instability and further strengthen the conservative will in this state.
Get ready for the same thing to happen across the country. It's just another day in Wisconsin.

I listen to NPR mostly due to the authors they interview.  Now that Hillary lost they're comparing Trump to Hitler taking over Germany ie were moving toward an authoritative government.  It's one big joke.  If the economy goes down the toilet a Democrat will be our next President.

Some of these lefties are off their rockers although the extreme right like Cruz and Daniel Webster do a good job of being nut cases too but at least they are the only ones  trying to Road block the spending.  

Little side note the Pentagon at the end of this year ended up with 125 billion dollar surplus that's with the sequester   Yet they whined that they were broke and tried to hide this surplus from congress  

I guess CRUZ is right about the spending   Seems to be proof in the pudding   Maybe Cruz should be listened to. That's the  one and only reason I like Cruz otherwise he is a nut case like his father.
