Didn’t see a lot of “my vote doesn’t matter because I live in a red state” dipshittery this year. I hope this election puts that sentiment to bed forever.

I'm in Texas, about 700k would have to help out for that one to flip.

I'm pretty sure most (or at least a vocal minority) of the people I served with were pretty left leaning.

Then again, I was "that guy" who would start those conversations. I liked seeing people trip over themselves.

Why the gently caress have the electoral college system if you can have faithless electors go against how people have voted?

In theory, it was meant to counter the illiterate, unwashed masses from choosing a president like Trump. The electors were supposed to be the "voice of reason". As time has passed, this function no longer happens, especially with some states passing laws that prohibit "faithless electors".

Once ALL states pass laws about their electors being bound to vote a certain way, the electoral college will be obsolete.

Pretty sure the EC is already obsolete because it had its chance to do its job for the first time in 226 years in 2016 yet didnt do it.

Theoretically to prevent people like Donald Trump from becoming president.

I never said it functioned as intended. I just happen to know the intent.

The ONE time the EC was supposed to step in, we got Trump.

We often mention brainworms.

I never thought we would see it in real life though.
