Re: Rural Americans would be serfs if we abolished the Electoral College

The now Democrat-controlled House of Representatives introduced a bill to eliminate the Electoral College. Since they didn't win the last presidential election under the rules that have existed for almost 250 years, they now want to change the rules. Below is the explanation of why this is a very, ...

No. I'll make my call when the time is right...like I did in 2016 when I predicted a Trump victory in July. :coffee: Question: Do you think Trump is going to become more likeable between now and November 2020?

Re: Rural Americans would be serfs if we abolished the Electoral College

Would there be just a tad of bitterness in that statement? Asking for a friend. Cynicism is not exactly bitterness... Look we've seen similar behavior with American tribalism in the recent past there is nothing new in my observation above There's also nothing incorrect (as best as I can tell) Cynic...
