In their infinite wisdom, the United States’ founders created the Electoral College to ensure the STATES were fairly represented. Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the nation?
The following list of statistics has been making the rounds on the Internet. It should finally put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense.
There are 3,141 counties in the United States.
Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.
There are 62 counties in New York State.
Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16.
Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens)
Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond)
Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.
When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.) DO NOT and SHOULD NOT speak for the rest of our country!
But that 319 square miles are where the majority of our nation’s problems foment.
Sometimes it’s hard to keep your love life interesting and varied when you’ve been with the same partner for many years.
But there are solutions to this problem.
This woman tried one of them, but her husband’s reaction was not at all what she had expected…
Maria had been married to Jeff for 20 years. They had a great relationship, but lately there hadn’t been much action in the bedroom.
So in order to spice up their sex life, Maria had just bought a pair of crotchless panties. She was eager to revealing them to him – she’d never worn anything like this before.
One evening, they were sitting on the sofa watching TV, and Maria was wearing her new panties and a robe.
Spreads her legs
She leans back, her crotch visible to her husband, but at first he doesn’t notice anything.
Maria spreads her legs every so slightly, and her husband’s gaze immediately darts between her legs. She closes her legs, and her husband goes back to watching TV.
She spreads her legs again, this time a bit wider, and once again his eyes wander to her crotch, and she closes her legs again.
“What are you wearing under the robe?” the man asks.
“Crotchless lace panties,” Maria replies in a sultry tone.
Her husband says:
“Phew! For a while there I though you were sitting on the cat!”
