It Turns Out That Trump LOST...
the popular vote. Plus, almost one-third of the California vote has yet to be counted. The Don won the election due to the constitutional electoral college system. It's all legitimate; it just isn't democracy. I suspect that many Americans don't understand the electoral college system, and further, don't realize that our Founders were not in favor of democracy. That's why they created a Republic. Perhaps it's time to reconsider our electoral system.
This is not sour grapes--- I didn't want either one of the major candidates to get elected. My main point is that Trump and his following most likely believe they have a popular mandate... but that's not true. He lost the popular vote.
It's a testament to the power & persistence of Propaganda that most Americans believe they're in a true democracy.
Not only my opinion. Be Well
