Eagle, I assume you're talking about my signature line. I feel likewise about the electoral college. Though I dare say that if we'd won in a similar fashion we'd be standing on our side of the playground yelling woohoo, too bad so sad, nyah nyah nyah, the electoral college RULES baby!
As for patriots and for standing up for what is right...yes, if push comes to shove I have no doubt the "good guys" outnumber the bastards. But unfortunately there's a tremendous amount of damage that can and will occur before it comes to that.
In any event, the outcome of November 6th calls into question whether this country can be saved. In it's current form, I would say...no. Folks a lot smarter than I have said recently that the president isn't the problem, or the end of this country. But those 50 million brain-dead zombies ARE, and may well be a destructive force that cannot be overcome.
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.”
― Alexis de Tocqueville
Those patriots may get their chance but it's going to be very ugly and very costly.
Sorry to highjack the thread 'billy.

Mack: Shame what this town's come to.
Charley Waite: You could do something about it.
Mack: What? We're freighters. Ralph here's a shopkeeper.
Charley Waite: You're men, ain't you?
Mack: I didn't raise my boys just to see 'em killed.
Charley Waite: Well you may not know this, but there's things that gnaw at a man worse than dying.
