i will say this but then SK and Japan better not fight for their past grievences. Please just decide by game of paper and rock who is going to concede one thing and who will concede other issue. Tokyo shall hate Seoul all they want but there is no sane person going to be happy when the chinese start saw the hole and makes ultimate communist influenced korean peninsula. Even All the inhabitants in shirakuni shrine will not be amused.

For all the people who fell asleep in civics class...
1: There are 3,141 counties in the United States. Trump won 2,626 of them. Clinton won 487.
2: There are 62 counties in New York State. Trump won 46 of them. Clinton won 16.
3: Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
4: In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond) Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
5: These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles. The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.
6: When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of the country.
And this children, is WHY you have a Electoral College. It's a safety net so that EVERYONES vote counts.
This, i think is what matter in this debate. So, i dont see any reason not to support electoral collage. BUT, FOR EVERY OF YOU WHATEVER SUPPORTERIAL POSITION AND POLITICAL VIEWS YOU HOLD, I HAVE ONE URGE TO MAKE.
Can you please be so kind not to whine over this every time your candidate lost because of it. I mean, to be frank, Trump itself used to say that EC is a "disaster". Well i respect him changing his views now but what matters is the argument and debate about system, so please threw away all the bias and start be true to your own word.
And yes not only the libs but all the conservative supporter here, i hope you will not change your opinion now when the EC is disadvantaging you. i dont know whats your position pre-2016, but i hope it is all the same like now.
