Makes me wonder if yelling about the Insurrection Act and parading around a few military units was all dog and pony, and another rabbit for the media to chase for few days.

Also, the threat of Military action tempered a lot of the rioting and looting in some places.
The use of the military was bluster aimed at local Mayors who for whatever reason were refusing to use available local resources to restore order. Look at Gov Cuomo's scathing criticism of De Blasio for failing to deploy the NYPD effectively.

Foreign actors, eh? The plot thickens.

The EC is purposely designed to prevent that.

Hillary would've won if she didn't write off a couple of states.

The underlying problem with the EC is that the framers never intended a limit to the size of the House Of Representatives. You can blame it on the Apportionment Act of 1929. This act reduced the value of urban voters.

The Constitution called for 1 Representative per 30,000 people.

Today that ratio is 1:700,000
"It force's candidates to campaign in all states"

Oh you mean Florida Ohio Penn Michigan?

What did I tell you about moronic justification for electoral system? Just grow and pair and admit why you like it.
Not sure what you're talking about. I personally don't have a problem with the EC. I never said I did.

There's nothing moronic about it.
