Indeed, this piece is pretty blatantly selective. How about showing a comparison of failed projects, how about how much projects actually cost in their respective agencies. The summary is right out of the 1960s BS "we're #1!" after winning a single race after being beating in dozens of others.
Beavis: You won every race, Butthurt! You went to the Olympics! Heh, too bad you didn't win.
Butthurt: Shut up, Beavis! Winning the Olympics wasn't my goal. I wasn't racing. I had other plans. I sent a robot to run my race for me.
So very funny. There were eight years of Obama rule during which all of these reforms could have been at least attempted. Funny how now that their favorite candidate lost everyone is coming out of the woodworks complaining about the system and asking for reforms.
I agree. Trump I believe said that the Electoral College "is a disaster". Perhaps he will work on this and other reforms.
I agree that the US political system is completely broken and needs wholesale replacement. I don't think this is the right way and the right time to do it.
No, for it to be completely broken, you'd have to look back to 1860. *That's* what a broken govt looks like.
For anyone who argues Trump supporters would be doing the same thing were the situation reversed, I call out your bullshit and will say it's pure speculation on your part. Right now the only folks who are actively participating in the riots and general stupidity are those who claim to be the " more educated, intelligent and / or informed " than those " Deplorable " Trump Supporters ( Hillary's description of them I believe ).
Of course it's pure speculation for us, since that happens to be in a different universe-line. Pretty good educated guess though. A quick read through pre-election chatter shows that. Also, why shouldn't intelligent people be protesting (not rioting etc) if they wish? I call bullshit, it's pure speculation on your part that they are the ones rioting etc. Democrats have a very wide base, so tends to be more unwieldy and non-monolithic. Finally, it's "a basket of deplorables". That's what makes it such a cute quote.
