STRAW FUTURES BREAK RECORDS


Also there has been an exponential rise in popularity for the sport of clutching.

Tomorrow it is Monday in the US and in state houses across the nation "electors" Will gather to cast their 538 votes in the real election for the next POTUS.

No speeches, no TV, just a number of citizens equal in number to the sum of senators and congressmen, with those actually excluded, will cast their vote for either Trump or Clinton.
However there has been unprecedented attacks on the system that saw the undefeatable immolated by the unfit.

Now it will be a constitutional upheaval never seen in the history of the U.S. if Donald Trump does not get close to the over 300 electoral college votes that were competed for back in November.
In a rather unique system to prevent a tyranny of the big population States of New York and California from deciding the Presidency.
Now those states overwhelmingly voted for Clinton but the so called "rust States" didn't join them so Trump achieved a serious majority among the "electors", otherwise know collectively as " The Electoral College".

Trump understood that wasting time and funds campaigning in California and New York, but as he filled rallies in other States some of the "deluded" (as opposed to " the deplorables) asked why Trump went to Harry Trueman's home state of Missouri and  nearby Wisconsin to campaign for small numbers odd Electors but the Businessman  knew stuff the elites in the Democratic party and the media would not and still don't understand.
Getting past the 270 odd in the electoral college was what mattered and if Clinton won a plurality across the nation in the so called "popular vote", so bloody what.

Alexander Hamilton, on the electoral college wrote in the Federalist paper No.68 “affords a moral certainty, that the office of President will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications.”

Your Point being eggnog.

Are you seriously suggesting that had Clinton won the delegate count in her totally inept campaign the electors would have been required to say none of the above.

All this BS that Trump is somehow less qualified than CHRC is just that BS.

Of course having a President without a penis largely funded by dodgy contributions ammassed during her stellar time as sec state and never divulged as to who contributed, makes her clearly qualified to be POTUS.

"To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity."

Lot of that missing in any Presidential race these days.

Given the performance of Drumph in the last two weeks I would gladly have HC or any other well read person at the helm. Pitted against a real estate agent who doesn't read is Putin, well educated, chess playing ex KGB agent. Which agent to you have your money on Dodger?

Oh yes, Tillerson has just been outed as a director of the US/Russian oil company registered in the Bahamas, wonder if he told the orange one?......drain the swamp? HO HO HO HO Merry Christmas one and all.

It is almost unbelievable that any person who has read, or watched anything about the Clintons
would not be overjoyed that they will rot in hell, and soon.
A few rebel electors will make no difference.

All voting systems have dangers.
Think here in New Zealand, if madman sociopath Gareth Morgan gained 5% of MMP votes.
We would have a socialist madness Hone / Mana/ Maori / Madman NMorgan where 95% of people's votes were meaningless.
Then the civi war of disobedience.

I would like to see Trump's statue in Washington Square, guarded by armed soldiers against the [egg] nogs. I think he will form alliance with Russia, steady the geopolitical alliance, and stop invading the middle East.

It'll be a few decades before they can buy 'artificial' semen.

Perhaps you mean 'frozen.'

Eggnog, you daft prick i don't have a horse in the race.
My post was a little tongue in cheek around the banshee wailing that democracy has not delivered the "DEMOCRATS" what they thought was in the bag, when their flawed old bag suddenly found her road paved with Saudi Gold was potholed and red stickered.

My position was if Clinton and Trump were the best two candidates the old parties filled with born to rule elites could offer then perhaps it was needed that Trump exposed the charade that US elections have become.

By the time many of the cardboard cutouts have ticked the necessary rainbow, female, shemale, shooter, race, ethnicity and sugar boxes they have no spare intellect to apply to their much sought after roles.

New Zealand Australia and other western democracies face similar daunting outcomes as socalled educated empty vassals enter the parliament sans any real world understanding and experience while their funders shrink in number too preoccupied to actually do anything constructive to avert the abyss.
