‘Trump has proved that – to at least a great extent – all publicly is, indeed, good publicity. The disturbing reality seems to be that low information voters control elections. As scary as it may be to say so,, we may need to rethink some fundamental assumptions about democracy.’….Anon….
I do NOT think we need to rethink democracy….
But two concepts I DO think need changes…..
1) The Electoral College ….
The concept brings power to small states, but has become a means for Republicans to get elected to the Presidency while losing the popular vote…Something that does NOT happen in ANY other election in this country….
Donald Trump is prime example of the problem with this…His approval rating is @40%……60% of the American publican do NOT want him in office….This number is up from his initial numbers….
2) The immunity of an American President for being held responsible for a crime…..
The view that the American President CANNOT be charged with a crime while in office is unacceptable to me….
No….We would NOT charge a President with the crime pursuing a military action…But the repeated boast of Donald Trump that he COULD shot someone in broad daylight in Times Square is prime example of the problem….
If Mueller was to find actions of Trump clearly ILLEGAL and CRIMINAL in nature?
Like other countries around the world?
He should stand trial in a CRIMINAL court like any other American citizen …..
