Letter to the editor: A good night's sleep

Let me get serious here for a minute or two...Trump won the election. The 18th century Electoral College functioned as it should. In my opinion, which I have stated before, it should have been eliminated long ago, But I digress.

Trump was an illegitimate candidate. Now before start slinging "Liberal" labels at me, hear me out.

In most any electoral process where there are more than two or three candidates, and there is a possibility that one does not get a MAJORITY of the vote. A runoff election is usually called for with the top two or three vote getting candidates. A majority can then be determined..

Trump never was in any primary election where he got more than 30 or a bit more of the vote. He got the MOST....but NEVER got a MAJORITY. This state of affairs falls on the Republican Party many of whom were aghast when this guy got the nomination as a winner of only 30 or so percent of the primary vote.

The solution is obvious.....require a run off election when you have a whole choir loft full of candidates. Not just the one who may have gotten only 20 to 30 percent of the voters preference. Simple, huh?

Well some of you will poise themselves to attack me for this logic.
But it is pretty much a standard procedure and was completely ignored by the Republican Party.

Now you see where this gets us.

Hey John....welcome to the fray!!! "Third rail in the New York subway" I like that!! Although some Midwesterners might not know about the "shocking experience" you are talking about.

About those "executive orders" of President Obama....Trump railed against them in his campaign BS rather frequently,. And.....then......he turns around and does the very same thing. Wheeeeee!!

Trump administration weighed mobilizing National Guard for immigration roundups

I think I beat you to the punch.....I reported this a few comment sections down a few hours ago.
It was on Newsmax (or Politico , or whatever). Might be on the Limbaugh site. He has a new format now, you know. Faster deployment of his B.S.

Hitler had his "nacht and nebel" (German for "night and fog") squads to round up Jews and anyone else he did not like. Hauled them off to concentration death camps for disposal.

Oops....."Hitler"! ...dang.....my bad......get the flag, boys, get the flag!!!!!!

And oh yeah...Sean Spicer must be doing quite a tap dance standing on quick sand as he is.

NEWS FLASH!!!!!

Trump wants to mobilize 100,000 National Guard troops to locate and deport "illegal" "immigrants" (according to" Newsmax" the Republican trumpet section)

HITLER, AGAIN!!!!!!! I know that most folks who are not familiar with the Third Reich "(Godwin flag"...there....I beat you to it!!!) will not know about Hitler's "Nacht und Nebel" (Night and Fog) squads to round up his enemies and haul them to the concentration death camps.

Welcome to the Fourth Reich!!! (This is not an imaginary thing), Hitler was actually planning this if he could escape the Allies at the end of the war. (World War II for those who lost their history books).

Well, Randi......you beat me to it........again!! But what you describe is the result of clueless voters, people (including children) who today are welded to their cute plastic electric toys wandering around with their faces glued to a small screen......... and into a busy street or over a cliff.

Trump spent a lot of stupid attempts to try to decertify, denigrate and destroy the previous President of the United States. And his "supporters" took the bait, Mrs. Clinton was pretty much the same as the previous President.

A significant enough group of these people thought this brash loud mouthed sex offender was a great choice over the previous black non-citizen Muslim President of the United States.

They voted for the braying jackass. And here we are.

The relief of impeachment cannot come soon enough.

I notice that some of my posts are disappearing without the usual poke from the censors at the JW. Are any the rest of you having this problem?

Sorry.......I wrote one comment and it did not seem to "take". Then I wrote another similar comment and then both comments appeared. I think my computer (or the web site) has the hiccups!)
