All you're arguing then is that plurality rules. Why? Why does plurality rule?And since the winner can be someone with 3 million less votes than his opponent, that method is flawed in determining the will of the people.Right, and the EV is how we measure the will of the people. What confuses you about that?We all know the procedures for a presidential election dumb ass, but The will of the people does mean something in the U.S. It is one of the core tenants of the country.Sorry son, we don't elect Presidents by the "popular vote". Stop crying, it just is what it is.The will of the people does mean something in the U.S. They weren't capable of counting the popular vote, so the electoral college was in the constitution, but it was never meant to override the will of the people. Since 1864, the first year popular vote was recorded, that fluke has only appeared 5 times.You get more deranged every day. There is no "packing", even the Dems have dropped that stupid talking point. What is your obsession with the "popular vote"? It means nothing in the United States.Republicans are the minority party, Sport. The Senators who voted for ACB represent 13.5 million FEWER voters that the Senators who voted against her. Republicans have been the minority party for years, winning the House with consistently fewer votes than Democrats. Trump lost the popular vote.Democrats are also a minority party, Sport. Your command of the English language is as bad as the government that educated youThats what happens when you have minority rule.That’s how it works when the majority party won’t compromise with the minority party. The filibuster was designed to force compromise rather than one party rule.Mitch turned the filibuster from a rarely used tool to a constant 60 vote requirementit's a demofk threat and only a demofk threat. stop with the both party shit. The GOP never ever did what the demofks do. never ever. The demofks created the nuclear option in the Senate. Not the republicans. Ending filibustering was the demofks, not the republicans, and now they are threatening this. It is always a threat from the demofks. AlwysThey just don’t seem to get it.McConnell blocking all those Obama appointments and leaving them for Trump to fill was a horrible idea.McConnell blocking all those Obama appointments and leaving them for Trump to fill was a horrible idea. Now that your party set the precedent, it's a little late for you to start whining about what your party set in motion.That is a horrible idea, no natter which side does it.And it will be the Democrat's right to add more members to the court.Didn't block anything. Just didn't call a vote. His right.What did Trump do?It looks like another HUGE win for president Trump to me!You think appointing Barrett doesn't look like an open move to grasp political power?Because it would be stupid and appear to the centrists to be a open move to grasp political power at any cost. That would cost the Democrats in the next election in 2022.They will need the House also
If Dems take all three, why should they not use their power?
McConnell blocked Obama from filling seats and then packed the courts with young Conservatives
I can’t stress that enough.
How many did he block?
Now that your party set the precedent,
You think 2015-2016 was the first time a Senate controlled by an opposing party has left some
court seats open at the end of a President's term? LOL!
Then they take their perceived slight, and think “well then we will do this!” And plan to do something incredibly stupid (pack the court.
Despite me saying repeatedly that I would be opposed to anyone doing it, and telling them it’s an absolutely horrible road to go down, they keep responding like bitter little partisans.
Hey clowns, ITS A HORRIBLE IDEA NO MATTER WHO DOES IT!!!
The Republicans exist on minority rule in the Senate, House, White House and now the Courts
The packing of the courts will be undone. There won't be enough Republicans left to stop them after this election.
We care about small States in this country too. And that someone who didn't even get the majority being screwed is just retarded
