    Yep. We have an entire party that has no real plan to recruit new voters by presenting good ideas. They just say whatever shit they need to say to get to the next day. There is no platform. But there is ideology mostly used to rile up the base. They're trying to rig the system because they know their ideas are unpopular and they're unwilling to adapt to changing demographics.

And now, if Trump actually tries to pull the shit in the Atlantic article, they can point to the precedent that these states set when they ignored the popular vote total in their own state.

    Yep, its needed reforming and updating for awhile. Term limits for federal judges and members of Congress, abolition of the Electoral College, reforms in how we nominate and approve federal judges, SC justices, and other federal appointees, greater privacy protections, an easier way to amend (change) the Constitution, and more. We're essentially still being governed by an 18th-Century document trying to cover a 21st-Century society, and the cracks are really, really beginning to show.

    No state has done that.

    No line to vote in the white precincts. 5 hour line in the nonwhite precincts.

    Correct, this is a basic lack of understanding of the compact, which is not simply symbolic in any event, and more blame the Dems for what pubs do BS.

    And no one is amending our shitty Constitution.

    why would he? Trump is endorsing this strategy, and as we all know, he does not speak for the party.

    The article is basically “dumb Blacks don’t know how to vote.”
