    It may surprise you but the EC can vote for whomever it wants to under the Constitutional rules. The popular vote is just a suggestion and it is not binding on the electors. (In case you don't know it, you are not an elector).

    Court rules Electoral College members aren't bound by popular vote

    That is very surprising, and disturbing. But as the article states, this ruling just happened on Tuesday. So previous elections have not been held under this rule. And as this is an appeals court decision, I expect it to go to SCOTUS.

    Sounds like someone is jealous of Trump and all the winning.

    Did you just call Reagan a doper/druggie? He's the one that one day the Chinese will tear down statues to replace Mao. Without his destruction of unions China never would have gotten a shot at the US market. Unintended consequences.

    Trump should go back to being a game show host.

    Trump is a headliner four times in every news cycle.

    Oh bull **** too. You say that because it gave Trump the win and there is NO other reason Trump HIMSELF was calling for a Civil War in 2012 when it appeared even just momentarily that Obama might take the win on EC votes alone..

    Why do you even HAVE an election if you give it to the loser?

    I would dearly love to see the Dems win on EC alone in 2020. We would see how much you like being disenfranchised.

    Is that why Reagan and Bush sr pushed Congress to make China a most favored nation so a trade deal could be made?

    JUST HOW HYPOCRITICAL ARE THE POOR LITTLE DEMOCRATS WHO HAVE SUCH SHORT MEMORY SPANS?

    Google "Is Obama the Messiah?

    There was an actual blog with that name and it was deeply disturbing.
    There were magazine headlines but the funniest was Newsweek in 2010 called Obama "god of all things."
    Jamie Foxx in 2012 at an awards show said, "First of all give honor to god and our lord and savior Barack Obama."
    Barbara Walters said, "We thought Obama was the next messiah."
    [​IMG]

    This was sent in by a rabid supporter and was once on Obama's website, but was removed.

    All of the below quotes were from Obama disciples:

    "Many even see in Obama a messiah-like figure, a great soul, and some affectionately call him Mahatma Obama."
    -- Dinesh Sharma

    "We just like to say his name. We are considering taking it as a mantra."
    -- Chicago Sun-Times

    "A Lightworker -- An Attuned Being with Powerful Luminosity and High-Vibration Integrity who will actually help usher in a New Way of Being"
    -- Mark Morford

    “I cried all night. I’m going to be crying for the next four years,” he said. “What Barack Obama has accomplished is the single most extraordinary event that has occurred in the 232 years of the nation’s political history. ... The event itself is so extraordinary that another chapter could be added to the Bible to chronicle its significance.”
    -- Jesse Jackson, Jr.

    "This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal."
    -- Barack Obama

    "Does it not feel as if some special hand is guiding Obama on his journey, I mean, as he has said, the utter improbability of it all?"
    -- Daily Kos

    "He communicates God-like energy..."
    -- Steve Davis (Charleston, SC)

    "Not just an ordinary human being but indeed an Advanced Soul"
    -- Commentator Chicago Sun Times

    "I'll do whatever he says to do. I'll collect paper cups off the ground to make his pathway clear." -- Halle Berry
    I specifically find this disheartening, dB

    "A quantum leap in American consciousness"
    -- Deepak Chopra

    "He is not operating on the same plane as ordinary politicians. . . . the agent of transformation in an age of revolution, as a figure uniquely qualified to open the door to the 21st century."
    -- Gary Hart

    "Barack Obama is our collective representation of our purest hopes, our highest visions and our deepest knowings . . . He's our product out of the all-knowing quantum field of intelligence."
    -- Eve Konstantine

    "This is bigger than Kennedy. . . . This is the New Testament." "I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often. No, seriously. It's a dramatic event."
    -- Chris Matthews

    "[Obama is ] creative imagination which coupled with brilliance equals wisdom . . . [He is] the man for this time."
    -- Toni Morrison

    "Obama's finest speeches do not excite. They do not inform. They don't even really inspire. They elevate. . . . He is not the Word made flesh, but the triumph of word over flesh . . . Obama is, at his best, able to call us back to our highest selves."
    -- Ezra Klein

    "Obama has the capacity to summon heroic forces from the spiritual depths of ordinary citizens and to unleash therefrom a symphonic chorus of unique creative acts whose common purpose is to tame the soul and alleviate the great challenges facing mankind."
    -- Gerald Campbell

    "We're here to evolve to a higher plane . . . he is an evolved leader . . . [he] has an ear for eloquence and a Tongue dipped in the Unvarnished Truth."
    -- Oprah Winfrey

    “I would characterize the Senate race as being a race where Obama was, let’s say, blessed and highly favored. That’s not routine. There’s something else going on. I think that Obama, his election to the Senate, was divinely ordered. . . . I know that that was God’s plan."
    -- Bill Rush



    This was the tip of the "Obama is God" cultists, who are ironically, atheists. You can't make this garbage up.




    So Trump says that he is the "chosen one" to try to deal with China. So what? Look how the Democrats actually worshipped the "messiah" who just turned out to be a MESS...how DUMB are these people?

    China would never have been able to lure the manufacturing giants to them had Reagan not pulled the teeth of Unions. Period. Oh sure, they would have opened plants there because it's a huge market but they would have been union plants and many of the abuses that make them more profitable would have been stopped.

    There's a difference .. Obama never said he was God or the Chosen One.

    He trolled the MSM again and they took the hook, AGAIN. It’s like they don’t even remember what they type from one day to the next.

    I think they are cohorts that live in a delusion with him.

    I'm not a biblical scholar, but I've never heard Jesus Christ referred to as "the chosen one." Have you?

    The first thing that popped into my mind was Harry Potter, who was referred to as "the chosen one" in the book series. I also thought of Obi Wan shouting "You were the chosen one!" to Anakin right after he chopped his limbs off. I also thought of The Matrix, but then I remembered Neo was referred to simply as "the one."

    My point is, the term seems to have more pop culture significance than religious, and it's hard to see how anyone can relate what he said to any Christianity, especially in context.

    Reagan only pulled the teeth of one public employee union that tried to hold America hostage

    It was much the same as harry truman did with the railroads in 1950
