Trump in Tulsa
This year's presidential election looks to me like a screaming mandate for America to switch to apportioning each state's electoral college votes according to the candidates' popular vote percentages. That's how democracy works: every voter's vote counts.
Meanwhile, as the vote counting continues in a few states that would not or did not have the ability to count all their votes quickly, President Trump is doing what he always has done when he does not get his way: file lawsuits, whine, rant and rave.
In the rant and rave department, this was in my Facebook timeline:
- True. Germany had a right to be angry at crippling economic punishments against them for WW1. If we’d helped them rebuild like we did Japan after WW2, there may not have been a Holocaust or a Hitler. Economic collapse causes fascist demagogues to arise. We know that so we should be able to prevent it but we don’t act on the knowledge. We let people suffer in poverty and just ignore them.
