    Why would I care? Prove I'm aligned with them any more than you are with Gorka or David Duke.

    I said you are aligned with them on the issue of the Electoral College, and, of course, you are. That's a fact. Am I aligned with Gorka and Duke on the need to keep the EC? I suppose, but I really don't know their positions on that issue. If I am, I certainly wouldn't try to hide behind some silly challenge that you "prove" the obvious...

    Why lie? Where have I quoted any of them or supported them?

    "the fact that you are aligned with all of the America hating, open border loving, free stuff radical leftists"

    Meanwhile you are aligned with the Unite the Right, KKK, Nazi, White Supremacists on this issue.

    I have no idea what their positions are on the EC. Actually looks like I'm aligned with Trump.

    Donald Trump blasted the electoral college in 2012, before it gave him the presidency

    Yes, of course they were both caused ultimately by a glut of commodities on the market that consumers couldn’t afford, causing profits to drop and production to be scaled back.

    So you are claiming the Great Depression was faked by historians?

    You hold the same position - eliminate the EC. Period. End of story. Fini!

    They hold the position because they know it will enable them to (in time) turn America into a Euro-socialist "utopia." That makes you one of them, whether you like it or not. Ever heard the term "fellow traveler?" How about "useful idiot?"

    So you hold the dubious distinction of sharing a position with both AOC and Donald Trump, and you are proud of that? Okay…

    If I am aligned with various radical right wing organizations that it is important to not empower the radical left to turn the US into a Euro-socialist "utopia," that doesn't make me one of them - all that does is make me not a lefty.

    Well Marxism certainly has the remedy for that:

    The causes certainly were. We now have irrefutable proof that leftist economic interventionism in response to a severe downturn produces non-recovery:

    It’s got to work better than the pragmatist capitalist approach they’re taking in Venezuela, hmm?

    What you call “non-recovery” is what a capitalist recovery looks like.

    Once again you think you can persuade people that you can read minds...and yes you are a useful idiot...for people like Gannon or Gorka.

    You argue that if not for the EC the mob would take over...."W" won by 500,000 votes. out of 120 million. The EC has nothing at all to do with the number of votes a candidate gets...the number of electors is based on the population of the state, not on the number of people who voted. How does that make sense?

    So the EC is about reading minds....how would those non-voters have voted? Children, illegal immigrants, people in jail, people in a coma in a hospital....

    The United NON-Voters of America?

    Tell me why you think it makes sense that each elector in Rhode Island represents 63,131 voters, while each California elector is representing 159,000 voters, meanwhile the 4.4 million voters in California who voted for Trump were not represented at all.

    I just explained how it is welfare, sweetie pie. You have anything other than no it isn't? Or is that the limit of your understanding of the issue?

    Not one dime you are paying is being saved. 100% of your social security welfare check will be paid by your children. Just like every other welfare program they will pay for

    So wait, now you get that words can have multiple meanings? You just obliterated your stupid crap that illegal aliens coming across the border are from outer space.

    That or you are a Republican. You just said you're "right." You going to vote for Trump again in 2020?
