    We do get the government we deserve. However, with low turnout being a problem from time to time, I wonder to what extent our representatives truly represent ALL of the American people? This is one reason why we should be doing all we can to get 100% turnout - sadly, some are doing the direct opposite in the pursuit of narrow partisanship.

    It's only happened 4 times in our entire history. And I am not aware when the Supreme Court ever before overturned the popular vote results.

    No one has claimed the keys can predict Supreme Court action.
    The SC has NEVER overturned the popular vote results. The only election the SC ruled on in 2000 was the Florida results in which Bush won the popular vote.

    You consider 4 out of 56 to be the norm, do you?

    Thanks for your opinion, but I've already provided documentation that the SC halted the recount in progress in Florida. It is a matter of public record.

    I hate to break this to you, but the presidential election is not determined by the national popular vote. Didn't you learn that in the 4th grade ???

    And it didn't matter did it because Bush won Florida any way.

    ???

    As documented above - "There have been 56 elections under the present system. Of those 56, 4 were not won by the winner of the popular vote.** That’s only 7.14%."

    And it didn't matter did it because Bush won Florida any way.
    We will never know as the SC ordered a halt to the recount.

    Or, that they consider those were problems inherited from the GOP, and the GOP's only plan now to resolve them is just more of the same trickle down economics that created the problems in the first place.
