re: The main reason I love Trump more today than a few weeks ago - TeLeFaWx
[quote]You're either missing the point entirely or just being obtuse. I don't know how else to put it. The vast majority of the rural area states electors have to vote in conjunction with the popular vote. Those states are republican states and therefore the EC is always going to follow the popular ...

[quote]Because he was criticizing the thing that got him elected. He was asked about if he still wanted to change it of course he didn't want to answer only saying I beat Hillary fair and square.[/quote] So?...

re: The main reason I love Trump more today than a few weeks ago - TeLeFaWx
[quote]The point is that it's an antiquated system that's only actually used by 21 states, and it was never about small states having a voice. These are facts. [/quote] Every state uses the Electoral College to decide the President, not just 21. All of them do. It's the Electoral College. I reall...

re: The main reason I love Trump more today than a few weeks ago - TeLeFaWx
[quote]Fair point. But again, it's really just for show at this point. Most states go the route of the popular vote due to state law or by "i wanna get re elected so I better do this" [/quote] I mean the Electoral College is designed to be a winner take all in the state unless you want to be a ...

re: The main reason I love Trump more today than a few weeks ago - TeLeFaWx
[quote]Today's news reports his approval rating at 38%. Is that the worst in past 50 years or however long that poll rating has existed? I feel positive about it though because at least it's not single digits.[/quote] I've never understood why anyone cared about approval rating. I'm assuming they...

re: Why haven't Mizzou fans embraced the SEC like Texas A&M fans have? - TeLeFaWx
[quote] I think most have. We have a lot of fair weather fans who don't support Mizzou athletics when it's in the shitter. Also, Missouri is a big pro sport state, especially the Cardinals and Blues (and formerly Rams). It's not a secret that Mizzou doesn't have a big a fanbase as we would like. I ...

[quote]In truth the electoral college really wasn't about big state vs little state, but moreso about keeping rich white male property owners elected. They believed this was nevessary to keep poor non-landowner from making the mistake of electing someone not in the good ole boy club. You are taught ...

re: Link to Ole Miss - NCAA Response - TeLeFaWx
[quote]8 new allegations (in addition to the original 13), none related to Tunsil's draft night.[/quote] If the NCAA doesn't do something about Tunsil, then what will they do? I mean I don't even know what I expect at this point. Penn State was molesting little boys for decades and they got a sla...

re: The main reason I love Trump more today than a few weeks ago - TeLeFaWx
[quote]Most of middle America electors are tied to the popular vote as it is. I just googled and it's a total of 30 states.[/quote] I'm confused by what you mean by this. [quote] Do you see the flaw in the system? We have a bit of both.[/quote] Two Senators per State. House of Reps is by p...

re: The main reason I love Trump more today than a few weeks ago - TeLeFaWx
[quote]Right now we are allowing rural America to decide our president, not just giving them a voice. [/quote] I mean. If Hillary had visited Wisconsin and Michigan, and had at least ONE economic message for the Rust Belt, then she wins comfortably. I think this is a hyperbolic view of what happe...

[quote]Somehow this shifted to a true democracy when really all I've stated is that the electoral college is inherently flawed and should be done away with.[/quote] I think with our winner take all system, the electoral college does a great job. It protects minority interests and prevents the umb...

[quote]I was there on Saturday. They are really pushing their agenda to get to Mars by 2030-2040.[/quote] I'm all for space travel and stuff, but I just don't get the Mars thing. I'd rather us have satellite colonies and some moon bases first. ...

[quote]Son of a bitch hasn't been in the office but for a month and the fricktard Dems won't let him get his cabinet set up. He already has been challenged in court before he could get his AG in office. Getting the Dems to do anything is like getting a cat to take a bath.[/quote] He told me he cou...

re: Obama's Farewell Address and what you will remember him for. - TeLeFaWx
[quote]Don't forget LBJ. What a fricking trio! [/quote] LBJ sucked, but we have been bad citizens for letting the obvious problems he created fester to the point which they are at now, IMO. We should have saved liberals from themselves. We conceded the culture wars to them, and they have ingrained...

[quote]I never liked Trump personally and never watched his stupid arse tv show. When he declared he was running for Prez and pointed out our immigration problem in the blunt terms he used, I was on board. The more i have researched him the more I like him. Not personally, but as the prez. The main p...
