    What do I think?

    A thread on a host who misspoke?

    *crickets*

    *crickets*

    *crickets*

    And, by the way ... Political Hotwire is an extremist leftist forum full of bat shit crazy liberals.

    You're better off discussing a meaningless topic like this with those psychos over there.

    How could that possibly be misspeaking? It seems to me that Abby talks privately about them as two dictators, but forgot where she was. It is also telling that Scaramucci did not catch that "slip". It certainly looks like a public and private face when it comes to Trump.

    I don't think it's biased to the right (Democrats have abused it too). I think it's defective.

    The system itself isn't defective, but confidence in it has been undermined by a foreign power meddling in it, by a candidate saying it's "rigged," and by spurious claims of "millions of illegals" voting.

    I agree it is defective and subject to abuse. The prevailing party in each state has the ability to keep itself prevailing. But right now it is biased to the right in many key states because the prevailing Republican government has successfully gerrymandered the division of voting districts to favor them.

    Another bias is in the electoral system where less populated states are given proportionally more electors than the population represents. This is significant because the less populated states are generally more conservative.

    Legboltz, I think the American elctoral system has been bias to the right.a nEw book has come out recently THE PResident is MIssing bill CLINTON AND JAMES PATTERSON claimingthat it was easy to trial bill clinton accused of being behind tronto terrorists states " 'the whole thing is that speaker Rhodes has been looking forward to a select committee hearing where there is only one outcome house judiciary committee for impeachment .It doesn't matter if the evidence against is strong weak or non existant" no such trial is possible against a right wing president because the elite is right wing. NO socialist could even been electer in theUSA despite there being elected in most other countries. Even a lft wing protest against violence I attended in Sacramental addressed by the GOvernor got no where.

    Bernie Sanders is an elected socialist and would have been the nominee had there not been fraud and collusion.

    Bernie Sanders was a mdoerate socialist. EVEY candidate was accused of fraud yet he was the only one disbar for nominating. THE Book I mention the President is missing a novel and fiction but it was suppose based on the reality in the USA.

    There is no dictator in the American election system.

    That makes no sense.

    American does not have laws that supports dictators.

    Better stick to Australian politics.

    It's biased to the Left.

    That's what the whole Russian collusion witch hunt is about ...

    Left bias

    Foreign countries have been meddling in our elections for decades.

    There have been accusations of voter fraud and illegals voting in our system for decades.

    Why do you guys claim to have lost confidence in our voting system at this time?

    Let me answer that for you.

    Because your candidate lost.

    No other reason.

    There is no evidence that shows the outcome of the election was altered because of any of these claims.

    None, nada, zip .....

    The only difference this time is your candidate lost.

    I actually knew my candidate would lose.

    I voted for Gary Johnson, which was a vote for neither of the major party candidates.

    Your candidate won. Well, good for him. Now, he is president and whatever happens on his watch is on him. Now, if only he and his sheep would quit complaining about the loser in the election and take responsibility for governing.

    Oh, and "Hillary would have been even worse" isn't an excuse

    Now, when has the winner in any presidential election said that the election was rigged?
