We won. He lost. Yet Hillary Clinton has conceded and he will be president. The system let the people of the country down.
Our Constitution has openly subverted the will of the people twice in 20 years — 2000 and 2016 — and done it more covertly, through the unelected Supreme Court, on numerous other instances, most famously the Citizens United ruling that privileged money over people in our politics.
The last anti-democratic result produced an incompetent administration that let us get hit on 9/11, invaded Iraq based on deliberate misinformation, wasted trillions, lost the war, and crashed the economy in 2008. This time the result may be worse.
This is not a sustainable situation. The electoral college must go. The Senate has to be based on population. And the Supreme Court requires, at minimum, term limits. How that will happen, I’m not sure, but a majority of voters should elect our president, not a minority.
