    If ever there was an argument for the Electoral College... this may be it.

    You didn't even make an argument here, Dumb Shit.
    Nor are you even capable of making one.

    And most of those crammed into that shit hole county are the result of the Mexican Invasion....Lord knows how many are Voting Illegals.

    The Founding Fathers could never have envisioned this particular scenario, but they provided for the Electoral College solely to prevent this general class of aberrations and abuses.

    How craven are Democrats?

    Their plan is clear. Flood the greatest country in history with The Third World---who will need government services immediately....turn it into a Third World itself....institute Marxism....and hope they don't run out of other people's money before they have had their full slop at the Federal Trough. Damn the generations to come.

    The Electoral College is like Capitalism itself. Both systems have serious flaws, but they happen to be better than any other alternative.

    That's why the only other place in the world that runs its elections that way is Pakistan.

    "Los Angeles county is home to more people than each of these 41 states"
    Not only is it home to more people but it's home to the filthiest of humans. Southern Mexifornia is a disgusting thirdworld shithole full of disgusting low iQ thirdworlders, pole puffers, chicks with dicks and welfare sucking bottom feeders. Thank God the filth here can't elect our POTUS on their own.

    Rubbish.
    This shows a total lack of understanding about how Proportional Representation works.

    PR would INCREASE the number of political parties to at least 5 or 6. This means that you wouldn't have the Republicans and Democrats controlling everything.

    Also, it would mean THE AMERICAN PEOPLE would get a say on who their politicians are.

    The German election is an interesting election to look at because the people vote FPTP and PR on the same day, at the same time.

    The larger political parties do better with FPTP and the smaller parties do better with PR.

    German federal election, 2017 - Wikipedia

    In FPTP the CDU/CSU gained 37.2% of the votes in FPTP and 77% of the seats. How is that fair in any way?

    Under PR, on the same day, they gained 33% of the votes, they lost 4.2% of the vote and got 35% of the seats. Much fairer you'd have to presume. Seeing as only 33% of German voters wanted them to represent them, not 77%.

    The FDP got 7% of the vote with FPTP and gained ZERO seats. 7% of people wanted them to represent them, but they got nothing. How unfair is that?

    With PR they got 10.7% of the votes and 11.4% of the seats. Much fairer. The voters actually got the representatives THEY WANTED.

    So, the only reason to support FPTP is when you want an unfair system that doesn't represent the wishes of the people, but helps big business to control everything.

    Under PR smaller parties could represent what you ACTUALLY believe in, rather than having to vote for the closest crap to your views.

    Nothing makes FPTP look good.

    The reality is that California and New York only make up a small percentage of the country.

    However Republicans KNOW that the system favors them, and so they don't want to lose an unfair system.

    One person, one vote. People vote - not acres. Or, are acres now people, too? That would make humans competing with corporations and acres.
