    Re: Technically the Dems and Hillary got who they wanted to run against.

    More like “precisely” than “technically”, right?

    Sorry, but Rigged for Trump to get the nomination & rigged for Hillary to win the general (but I repeat myself . . . .).

    Yes, wigone, kinda DOES look like “rigging”
    I would like to see what Krauthammer (and every other pundit who is going apoplectic about claims of “rigging”) said when Hillary was going on about Bush 43 having been “selected, not elected.”
    My guess is that there would be the sound of enough crickets to feed a big city zoo’s reptile house for a week.

    He sure wouldn’t get MY vote — he has played a part in pushing an unconstitutional election scheme on Utah, for one thing.

    OK, Mitt, here you go:
    (1) If you win the nomination and you can’t win the general, then you sit out at least 1 cycle.
    (2) Trump owes the nomination to the hyper-divided field — do you really think that having YOU in the mix would have changed it?
    Get over yourself, man.

    @ Six-toedgunmonkey
    Either of those two methods would be fine — why not leave it up to each state to choose.
    Another part of that amendment to consider: Make the Electors’ first vote automatically be the pledged/assigned vote so no “unfaithful elector” hi-jinx.

    @ Tired of Pastels,
    I agree with all that you said — but I have concerns about your reading comprehension.
    Eliminating “winner-take-all for presidential electors” does NOT mean eliminating the Electoral College. It means that the “Battleground States” are not so critical. Candidates will split the electoral votes of California, Illinois and New York (yes, Texas, too).

    . . . and then there is Jonathan Gruber . . .

    We need to start having Conventions of States for amending the Constitution.
    NOT a “Constitutional Convention” and NOT a single Convention of States.
    Each amendment needs to have its own convention.
    First one: Term limits for Congress
    Second: No winner-take-all for presidential electors
    The amendment process should be kept simple and not “comprehensive.” As Trey Gowdy has said: “Comprehensive” is Latin for “There’s a lot of bad stuff in there.”

    Probably an anti-Trump guy. VERY probably.
    Ironic that this sort of nonsense does nothing but HELP Trump.

    Nope — I live in Utah and I voted for McMullin yesterday.
    McMullin is polling ahead of Trump here, so I voted for the candidate with the best chance of beating Clinton (in Utah).

    How is it that your post got so many “down” votes, while bluetexan has like half of that number in “up” votes?
    I think that there is something fishy with the voting here.
    Oh — but in the spirit of full disclosure, one of those down votes IS from me (I just think that there are phony down votes as well)

  • [3] October 26, 2016 at 12:01pm

    So great that we have voting MACHINES, right?
    I mean — can you imagine the tribulation involved in waiting a whole DAY to get results with paper ballots?

  • [10] October 26, 2016 at 12:26am

    But you got better.

  • [7] October 26, 2016 at 12:01am

    I respect Levin and the decision he has made.

    re: I seriously doubt the RINOs in the RNC would give Trump’s campaign any voter lists and electoral data.
    Well . . . my household has been getting a LOT of mail from Trump’s campaign — wanting donations, of course. No one in our house ever gave any contact info to Trump, so he must have gotten it from someone else . . .

    Not if “this point” is located somewhere in Utah, Zipit. In these parts, a vote for anyone but McMullin is a vote for Hillary.
    So, yeah — in Utah, a for for Trump is a vote for Hillary.

  • [15] October 25, 2016 at 6:34pm

    95% chance of that — thanks for 4 years of President Hillary Clinton, Sean!

  • [-1] October 25, 2016 at 5:50pm

    Yup, a Democrat with an “R” after his name — just like Trump.

    Cafe, you remind me of Donald Trump and his bankruptcies.
    He repeatedly declares bankruptcy and ruins small businesses that extended credit to him. Then he makes a “comeback” and he doesn’t pay back those creditors.
    He says that he acted within the law (and that is correct) — but did he act within the dictates of humanity and decency?
