Obfuscation with "it's always been that way" isn't going to work. In our system the public and the EC are distinct beasts or else Clinton would have won. We have no choice in the matter. As a matter of record I can offer this factual truth, not Fake ones.

Clinton received 2.87 million more votes than Trump did (the largest margin ever for a losing presidential candidate).

The EC decides who holds Office which is NOT the same as the number of people voting outside that body.

Clinton won the popular vote, end of story. Now if you have some deep insights into the fabric of so called reality and can manipulate almost 3 million more into less than zero consistent with understood laws of math, then publish them and you will eclipse Gauss, Euler and all the rest in all of history.

Remember to show your work.

So our system worked EXACTLY as it is supposed to, America's voters put Trump in office. He wouldn't be there without those votes.

Any system that produces something like you is to be studied so proper vaccinations and countermeasures can be put in place... No reason for anyone else to suffer what you got.

But the American voter very much DID elect Trump.
An obvious lie. You argue one thing about what the EC is, then you say this, which it clearly is not, to keep defending the most obvious possible lie. The EC has never been the American Voter. It was set up and as always existed to be exactly not the American Voter. You can't argue for it, then against it, and claim in both instances to be saying the same thing. You are an illiterate quisling.
