    "Fair" is a fiction.

    And if the states apportioned it based on district votes it never would have been close to having the popular vote winner not win.

    PR should be a state.

    I believe Sanders is not going to be corrupted like most ... I hope Yang can be there too, but he doesn't have a chance unfortunately.

    Gabbard may be hard to corrupt but way too early to tell.
