Fuck the Electoral College!

I’ve engaged in several stupid arguments about America being a “republic” vs. “democracy”, but what we really are is a plutocracy- a society governed by the wealthy. As right-wingers often point out, even Democrat leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Bernie Sanders are wealthy by most standards. We only maintain the façade of a representative government. Every vote most certainly does NOT count, and our elections are often decided by just a couple of swing states, thanks to the electoral college. People ask, “why should the election be decided by New York or California?” Why should it be decided by Wisconsin, Michigan, or Florida? This is the rigged system that will always keep us in the two-party gridlock. As long as we have the electoral college, Democrats and Republicans will be the only electable candidates. In most of our lifetimes, we’ve seen two candidates lose the popular vote become President. Notice this has only favored one party too! Jesus, if Donald Trump had won the popular vote, but lost the electoral college so Clinton became President, the wailing and gnashing of teeth would have rocked this country. There would be rioting in the streets with muskets and tri-corn hats in fucking colonial cosplay! Typical right-wing hypocrisy. This polarization is what will ultimately destroy us, red tie vs. blue tie, my team vs. your team. When you think about it, a politician’s career basically depends on this polarization. George Carlin said it far better than I ever will…
“The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care! Good honest hard-working people; white collar, blue collar it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means, continue to elect these rich cock suckers who don’t give a fuck about you…. they don’t give a fuck about you… they don’t give a FUCK about you.”
So while you’re so busy worrying about owning the libtards, recognize you’re part of the fucking problem and a big reason why this countries collapse is all but inevitable.
