Well people vote for their leaders (or choose not to vote and let others decide for them).
true, but more people voted for hillary than trump. you also got a weird election system. it also comes down to just 2 parties every time. its basically black or white and no inbetween. thats crazy.
but back to topic. please get it straight in orlando, florida. im desperate for NBA-basketball
Sure, more people voted for Clinton, but many of them abstained from the primary, where they could have voted for Bernie who stands for issues like universal healthcare or free public education, which are issues most Democratic voters agree with. Many of them also abstain from local elections, gubernatorial elections etc., which play a big role in why we have such a dysfunctional system. Maybe if more people participated in elections, referenda etc., we wouldn't have a system where the person with fewer votes wins, or a system with only 2 options. The first-past-the-post system we have in the U.S. isn't that much different than what they have in the UK or Canada, countries that have a functioning multiparty system. American voters treat politics like sports unfortunately. Anyway, enough about that. I just had to get it out of my system.
