This is not going to go the way you think.
Most shit hole countries have an "election" and surprise, surprise, the dictator in charge gets 100% of the votes
Let's make anti Trump meme's that will teach him!
The rules were available to everyone before the election 🐸☕
I come on AdviceAnimals to laugh, not see cancerous memes backed up by a self entitled prick OP. "USA is shithole country because I don't like outcome of the election...WAHHHHH"
Because if there was no electoral college only big states and urban areas would be campaigned towards. The United States is much larger and more diverse than any other western nation, and it's voting system should be made to give small states a voice for their own unique needs and force politicians to actually give a fuck about Wyoming rather than only campaigning on the coasts.
Most countries don't use proportional representation. It's actually pretty common in countries that Trump would call "shithole." This meme is absolutely uneducated and terrible - there are merits to different electoral systems and whilst the US system has it's flaws, it's extremely naive to think of it as categorically bad. If you can suggest a few alternatives and why you'd prefer them, then go ahead - that would be an interesting discussion!
Not gonna lie the goddamn Kermit drinking tea also makes me think you're smugger than you are. And disclaimer, I'm not a Trump supporter nor American.
Yes because mob rule is just so much better.
We have an electoral college. The popular vote doesn't decide the president.
How do we combat something we dont like?
Go to town halls and voice frustrations? NO!
Go to state meetings and voice frustrations? NO!
Post memes in hope that you will get internet points? YESSSSSSSS
Except no one campaigned on or attempted to get the most votes overall... It's the most electoral votes. If it were changed, campaigns would change, and you might have a different outcome, but that's a discussion for next election. Representative democracies are a staple around the world. This isn't some outrageous thing
Clinton won 487 counties, that's great!
Trump won 2,626
Cant browse reddit without seeing “shithole country” in a post. Get over it omg
Hey I think Trump is terrible as the next sane person but it's odd we're critiquing the Democratic aspect of him winning when his opponent literally colluded with the DNC to rig the primaries.
We need to rid ourselves of that pesky US Constitution. Always getting in the way with those rulz.
Poor liberals. When they lose all of a sudden the rules are unfair.
Both campaigned knowing these rules. Would you Americans use the popular vote they would have campaigned differently.
Absolute ignorance. You probably don't even know what form of government we have. Despicable. If the result was the other way around you would be clamoring around touting electoral college.
Why is the correct response to tear down the USA? I thought everyone was upset that someone disparaged a whole nation. So why are people falling over themselves to say how the USA is so awful.
I don’t like what the President said, and so did a lot of other Americans.
Or you could just educate yourself on how the electoral college works and why it was set up instead of posting ignorant wrong memes.
We have had the electoral college long before we have had Trump. I’m neither left nor right, but I can pretty much guarantee that if Trump won the popular vote, but lost the election, the left would not be complaining about this supposedly shitty voting system. Cherry picking for convenience does little justice in the war of right and wrong. Respectfully... Downvote all you want. Doesn’t change the truth. Whether you’re left or right, playing to these certain tunes means one thing only: you’re part of the division.
