    1. Can you get beyond name calling & explain how Democrats are somehow now regarded as "traitors & liars"? BTW, I'm NOT blindly obedient to Democrats or the party. I have areas of disagreement & I openly state those disagreements when they surface. But for me personally, having to choose between the two significant parties in America, I find myself far more in agreement with Democrats than Republicans.
    2. The Electoral College has always been an issue for a small minority of Americans concerned with democratic principles. For most Americans, it's still not an issue, but when one considers it is responsible for giving the Presidency to the candidate coming in second in the popular vote, both in 2000 & 2016--the last two Republicans to win--it DOES begin to concern those who believe in the concept of democracy in America. Yes, the EC is doing what the framers wanted--keeping power & authority in the hands of the upper classes, many Americans feel that framer's ideal has been weakened thru time due to the spread of education across class boundaries, & that democracy is "safer" in the hands of modern, educated citizens. Certainly, the trend has been toward more democracy thru American history. I suspect most Americans favor that trend.

    Like most modern conservatives, you have an ability to find fault with everything, & attack everyone with whom you disagree. Sad for you. :(

    Have you even taken into account the numerous accounts of voter fraud from the democrats, something that they traditionally practice?

    BTW, name something that democrats do that you disagree with, listed in this thread. You may convince yourself of it but that does not make it true.

    You have that reversed. It is democrats, such as you, who try to turn any statement against them into something that they should profit from.

    The fact that you will never admit it is truly sad for you, and disingenuous.

    I have absolutely no idea what you are referring to here--or even thinking. Can you provide examples?

    Example: All of your posts regarding the comments by others.

    The claim that you "have no idea" says more about you than you probably wish.

    Your ability to see the dark side of any post is both amazing & exhausting.

    Your ability to make dark and false statements is both amazing and exhausting. Just can't let you get away with it.

    Even if that were their intent, anyone who thinks democracy is proof against that is pathetically naive.
