i knew what he meant.
but, if one is going to address me specifically and call me inconsistent
, i'd only ask that they back that up with references.
as i only made one statement, by definition it can't be "inconsistent". anyway, if i was so inclined i'd point out now the lack of a "majority vote" of the people for the 16 years prior to this election. so, what matters more? majority vote? popular vote? good question.
that being said, one can argue "popular vote"... "majority vote", etc etc ad nauseum. the fact remains that, at the end of the day, neither matter much. it's the electoral college votes that decide the election.
now then, the relevance/need today for the electoral college system is an entirely *different* thread.
