You'd be right, except for a couple things.

1) Most Americans outside of NYC and LA and Bay Area didn't like Hillary
2) IF we didn't use Electoral College, the outcome would have been vastly different, because different strategies would have been employed. The assumption is, that HRC would have gotten MORE votes from LA, NYC, Chicago, and Bay Area, when the reality is, she was already at "max" for the areas she won overwhelmingly.
3) Changing how the game is scored (electoral college vs popular vote) is how to actually not admit how horrible Hillary actually was.
4) She lost to a Junior Senator from Illinois, and almost lost to Bernie, even Democrats don't actually like her. While DJT actually beat a substantial number of GOP candidates to actually "win" the nomination, rather than the coronation of HRC. If it wasn't for the outright stolen election HRC would have been a two time D loser.
5) HRC lost the popular vote in the Primary in a number of states, but still won the state delegation, now you want to use Popular Votes?

This post isn't about DJT at all, it is about HRC and how rotten a candidate she actually was, and the ignorance of people who keep saying "She won the popular vote". Yeah, that is true, but that is not how to win the Presidency.

We’ve had free and fair elections and we’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them and that is what must be expected of anyone standing on a debate stage during a general election. President Obama said the other day that when you’re whining before the game is even finished it just shows you’re not even up to doing the job. - Hillary Clinton

I wonder what she would say about people whining about the rules after losing the game.

Greed and efficiency are related, because one is simply a subjective judgement on the other.

If a craftsman can create a nice pretty and highly functional arrowhead in 18 hours, and an journeyman can make one every hour using simpler techniques, he can build 18 arrowheads in the same time as a craftsman can make in an hour, and that has its own advantages. You can call that "greed" all you want, but when trading time comes, the guy with 18 arrowheads is gonna get more in trade than the guy with only one, even if it is better constructed and prettier. Though the nice one will likely end up with the chief / prince / king as a ceremonial piece that is never actually used.

Greed (subjective interpretation) is, for lack of better understanding, how trade actually works. After all, what does Uggah need with 18 semi automatic arrowheads?

Two things of note Mr (or Ms) AC.

1) Retard is not longer acceptable epithet, especially among the politically correct enlightened liberal crowd. You might want to try a more intelligent word.

2) This means Clinton was so unlikable, America wanted a "retard" over her. Again, not very good position for liberals and democrats.

You might want to go back to the insult drawing board, since most of your lameness is actually a poor reflection on the whole Clinton Campaign.

That would be a great theory, except that the MSM and all the big players in DC have been telling us for the last 1.5 years that Russia has Trump in their pocket.

It makes way more sense if you said this was the Three Letter Agencies involved and their deep state overlords ordered this a payback for "Russia Hacking The Election".

Further, if it is what you say it is, it defeats the whole "Russia Hacked The Election" at several levels, namely it backfiring on the Russians. They probably have more dirt on Clintons due to Bill's sexcapades and Hillary's power hungry greed.

My real view is that this is just normal everyday slimy nationalistic rah-rah saber rattling. Yawn.

My favorite customer is related to yours. This customer knows exactly what he wants, in detail, and you deliver it to him exactly as he asked for it, and they don't like it. Mind you, you make lots of helpful suggestions along the way, which they hate. Then they go to another vendor, and they get exactly what you pitched them.

A number is not proof of identity. It is a reference number to help establish that you are who you say you are. Having identifying information, like a Social Security Number is not proof of identity, it simply is a tool in what should be a chain of tools to help one verify (key word) identity.

People who accept it as "proof" of identity are misusing it, and should be held accountable for that misuse. Any Line of Credit established without enough other evidence is itself evidence of lack of due diligence.
