    Most votes wins the election, simples. Al Gore would have won the 2000 election, as would have Hillary last year and the world would be a completely different place.

    Well with the president you currently have the answer most certainly should come from within (American made).

    2. Reduced powers for President.

    3. Independent Boundaries Commission to sort out gerrymandering.

    Population arms itself. Bricks itself in. One strike and you're out (and so build more prisons). Downward pressure on poor and middle class incomes so as not to demotivate them. Upward pressure on the incomes of the wealthy so as not to demotivate them. Allow rubbish food to be fed to children in schools. Restrict access to healthcare for unhealthy people who are impecunious. Frame the environment, legally, as an entity with human rights and then protect its right to be polluted. Defund any projects around the world that have the word 'woman' in the title. Prosecute journalists who shout questions out at elected officials in public places. Not necessarily in this order.

    Trev. The vote Difference for California basically covers the difference between Trump and Clinton (4 million or so). I hate to say it, but the college systems kinda works.

    What does "the vote Difference for California" have to do with "Most votes wins the election"?
