The popular vote means nothing.




By the same token, I voted for Trump. and I live in California as well. There was no chance Trump was taking the state, so at some point not every vote counts. Clinton could have received 1 million more votes then Trump in the state and it’s meaningless.


As for "the popular vote means nothing."
Pffft. It certainly does in determining how our state Republic apportions it's Electors.

If you want a Democracy you can try and come and get it. But I'll fight to preserve (what's left of) our Republic.

Democracy?!!! Don't nobody want none of that! Seen that movie. Seen how it ends. Lord preserve us from the tyranny of the mob.
