Right.  The petition to get rid of the Electoral college was worth the time it took to complete it.  If it creates some noise toward getting rid of it, good.  The end.

Glad to see this list focusing on science (hmmm). Also, it's strange here to read these Election Denyers (conspiracy theory?) that Trump won the election.

Don't get me wrong -- I'm no Trump NOR Hillary supporter. But I find Michael et al.'s cherry-picking of evidence to prove an electoral conspiracy here to be hypocritical, given his arguments about things I've posted in the past.

So, Trump (or rather, Rove) did to Hillary what Hillary did to Bernie. Chickens come home to roost. (Interesting metaphor, that one, as most chickens are never let out of their horrific cages in all their lives to begin with. There is no home, there is no roost.)

On the barricades,

I’ve already  signed it ,as well. Given that Trump wants to stage a virtual revolution, his less than compelling claim to have won should be denied , discouraged and subverted in every possible legal way.

Righty, Chandler, who knows, but it is so easy to do.

Four million is a lot of signatures. If the press picks up on this and
gets excited it could make some useful noise even if it doesn¹t work.
Might help the movement toward getting rid of the Electoral Collage.

Yes, I had already seen, signed, & circulated this e-petition.  I don't
know how persuasive it will be to any electors in Republican states.  I
think that many many signatures on it may be an important boon to morale.

see if you could help by adding your name.

Our goal is to reach 4,500,000 signatures and we need more support.
