American Democracy? Let me refresh your memory from a little bit more than three years ago:
|Hilary CLINTON (D)||65,853,516||48.2%|
|Donald TRUMP (R)||62,984,825||46.1%|

Please remind me how the loser of the popular vote being declared the winner is any kind of "democracy" at all. <SARCASM> Oh, that's right. The Electoral College, which was adopted to protect the fragile American democracy from demagogues (cf., e.g., The Federalist No. 85). How's that working right now? </SARCASM>
