We are up to 128.5 million votes cast in the 2016 election, just 700k shy of 2012 with plenty left to count out West. pic.twitter.com/cL2cNEGTld— Patrick Ruffini (@PatrickRuffini) November 12, 2016
Strange how when your side wins what used to be horrible, anti-democratic and against "we the people" is perfectly okay.
Democrats have been really great at this, and Republicans are proving themselves to be just as capable.

Remember when the filibuster was a fundamental tradition of the Senate and needed to prevent majority overreach? Watch all the arguments against it by "conservatives" and Republicans when it is used against the Trump/Republican agenda to block the will of the "we the people" minority who won the election fair and square like George W. Bush in 2000.
Too few understand the importance of the electoral college and the filibuster any more. They both are part of the checks and balances system that slows down the rush to legislate and use government force for this or that popular idea.
