    1. @Parth Sharma … I think it’s easy to understand why some people worried about a coup… exactly how people were concerned about Gore challenging the election results when he did

    2. @It is what It is I understand that. However fraud should be rooted out no matter how small. When Biden gets inaugurated this chapter will be closed. It won’t resort to violence

    3. @Parth Sharma … absolutely, fraud is wrong on every level. No matter if it’s the Democrats or when the Republicans do it… I’m not clear on the violence part of your comment but hopefully there won’t be any.

    1. If this video link doesn’t snap you Dem supporters out of
      your Alternate Dimension slumber subliminally narrated by MSM Big tech, and the malevolent
      globalists. Then God help your soul and the American Global Democracy

  1. In 2016 several electors defected from Hillary and voted Trump…
    Their Argument was that they could vote for whomever they choose… Smh.
    You vote for the people, not out of your own interests

  2. Republicans know they can’t win fairly, so they prevent any Democratic reforms. Tyranny is the Republican brand!

    1. @Parth Sharma Votes are not coin flips. There’s not a 50/50 chance of each vote in a given county being for either Biden or Trump. Wayne County, MI, for example, went 68.5% for Biden. And when you’re looking specifically at the mail-in ballots, those would be even more likely to be Biden votes, since Democrats were statistically far more likely to vote by mail this year and Republicans were far more likely to vote in person.

    2. @RedXlV ok, it’s not 50/50. So even still, do (7/10)^139000. That’s the probability of pulling every single ballot for biden. Mind you, not 1 was for trump. Not 1 of 139000.

      That’s working retroactively w the data given. Seriously, you can’t look at 139000 and legitimately believe not 1 was for Trump, especially pulling from a random sample

      Mail in ballot or no, yeah they lean heavily Democratic. So make it (9.5/10)^139000 and tell me the probability of it being every vote for biden

    3. They’ve even gone as far as to abandon federalism and states rights. Well they were always long on hypocrisy and short of Integrity.

    4. @Parth Sharma You reckon its worse than what you have now? insane people, people being evicted, not being able to provide for families?

    1. Without the electoral college, the Republican Party would have to actually appeal to the majority of Americans if they want to win elections. And they know they can’t do that.

    2. @garyoa1 PS we have NEVER been 50 different countries. Stop trying to inflate us to something similar to the EU please.

  3. Trump has two parts of a brain ‘left and right’

    In the Left there’s nothing right
    And in the right there’s nothing Left.

  4. Yea agree its seems really unfair and complicated we have simpler system here popular vote wins good luck America

    1. @Stratelier The candidate who gains the most votes wins. No Electoral College. If anybody tried to introduce an Electoral College system, there would be an outcry. No Party would ever attempt to introduce such an undemocratic idea. Every County has 1 or 2 members of Government, depending on it’s population. Members belong to one of 5 Parties but the majority represent the three most popular. The party which gains the most seats forms the Parliament. It’s very fair.

  5. In the last 30 years, the repubs have won the presidential popular vote only once but yet have had three presidents elected by the electoral college…

    2. @Jasmany Foch I hope you’re being sarcastic. trump and the republicans have been doing their best to turn this into a shithole country. As somebody who has spent many years living abroad in Europe and Asia, I can see how many things people in many countries take for granted what we can only dream of here.

    1. @dodo whiny liberals are hypersensitive, irrational people who can’t stand to have their world views challenged, or be offended in any perceived or even slightest of ways; they will have any number of emotional reactions: impuning character and/or motives, crying, temper tantrums, blocking on social media, shouting, hissy fits, interrupting, threatening, assaulting, etc. they often live in an echo chamber of their own beliefs and surround themselves exclusively with people and opinions that agree with their own…an overly sensitive whiny person who makes a scene when it doesn’t get his/her way and blames everyone but his/herself. the little crybaby liberal who’s mother should’ve spanked him/her as a child. WAAAAAAAAW WAAAAAW

    1. @william harlow another delusional Trumper. YOU people are clearly the danger to democracy, America and the world. I’m still waiting for Hunter Biden’s laptop evidence to come out. Waiting. Waiting…Waiting……

    3. True jail and accountable for the covid 19 deaths he put on the American people. Trump is nothing but a MURDERER.

  6. It was a coup. He’s been aiming at that from the start. He and his kids should not be allowed to run for any office ever.

    1. Trump hasn’t even tried to hide his intent. A confession wouldn’t change anything. This whole attempted coup is fueled by Trumps enablers.

  7. Colorado just voted to go with the popular vote and not the electoral college, but a certain amount of other states need to agree before it works.

    1. When push comes to shove, do you really think that New York and California are going to go against the verdict of their own people and give their electoral votes to a Republican candidate? Even if enough states agree, the thing is not credible, and it could lead to a crisis.

    2. Americans need to start a petition to abolish the electoral college. Elected officials of this are not going to do it they are too busy being demacrates and republicans and are not interested to do what is best for America. Frankly I’m tired of both partys.

  8. I don’t hate the man, he’s just a Gemini. Oh, Donald, Mr Vance would like to speak with you before you leave for Moscow; and bring Rudy with ya

    1. Did you know that Trump, Pence, Barr, Giuliani, and Newt Gingrich are all Gemini as are Laura Ingraham and Jeanine Piro? The sign’s inborn duality makes lying natural.

  9. The meltdown of the Don should embarrass all of us…his toddler like refusal to accept that he lost and his lack of dignity in defeat…is a national humiliation. : (

    1. Thank you! Think of it as a gift to John Mcain who was insulted by this crook. Well done!! I’m sure J Mcain would be happy and proud of you.

    1. @Frank RenewablesCheap is he allowed to pardon for crimes that haven’t been charged yet? I don’t understand what he thinks he’s doing?

  10. Georgia, so many real problems exist in our system of government. You however, Georgia, have the power to give Biden’s administration the ability to fix all of them. Vote Warnock and Ossoff in January. You will make the difference.

  11. Agree with everything Chris said, with one small correction. WHITE women couldn’t vote until 100 years ago. Black women had to wait over 50 years after white women.
