Letter to the Editor

Clinton is the real winner by far

Sunday, December 11, 2016

To the editor:

Now that the election is over, I've been hearing a lot of people chanting "He won," "The people have spoken," etc, etc, ad nauseum. There's only one problem with this: He didn't. The people have spoken, all right, but they chose Hillary Clinton. In the actual vote count she is ahead of Trump by over 1.5 million votes. Yes, Trump won in the electoral vote count. This outdated, antiquated system should have been abandoned when radio was invented. We are the only Western Democracy on Earth that does not honor the voter's wishes. It is a disgrace, and it should be changed.
