    if only those who owned real property were allowed to vote, Hillary would have only won two states


    and CALIFORNIA was not ONE of them!

    Never mind that the "People Magazine" Trump quote is fake, and there's no excuse for not knowing that . . .
    “The concept that government may restrict the speech of some elements of our society in order to enhance the relative voice of others is wholly foreign to the First Amendment.”

    Well to be fair podesta and crew have worked long and hard to make them "unaware and compliant."

    https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/3599

    "And as I've mentioned, we've all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry."

    It takes awhile to get away from entrenched identity politics and embrace empowerment to all humanity.
    Thank you

    It's not. Trump never even said that.

    Donald Trump Said Republicans Are the "Dumbest Group of Voters"?

    Moot, Trump did not say this. This is a fake quote.

    I love how you lament "two tries but the system is still imperfect". Liberals hate America and would do away with everything in order to impose an authoritarian government.
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.
