No intelligent human would not understand the simple phrase I used in contrast to your statement "slavery has nothing to do with" the Electoral College.
I was wondering how you were going to wiggle out of documenting your position this time. I thought for sure you'd use your typical "Not my responsibility, look it up yourself, it's in in the history books" evasion. But, of course, it is getting a bit worn.

But trying to sound so offended that you cannot bring yourself to actually prove your stance....... that's a new technique for you. Kinda snowflakey, y'know, but original in a way.

I've always wondered why you have such pontifical opinions but conversely an aversion to giving any evidence for them. You're an algebra teacher and I think you have kind of been ingrained with the idea that your conclusions, like mathematical ones, are intuitive and a priori obvious and hence do not need to be demonstrated. My background is science and we have to prove our conclusions with what is called "evidence."

You claimed slavery had nothing to do with creation of the Electoral College. No one is saying it was the ONLY reason. But believing it had NOTHING to do with it is also incorrect........Wabash
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

And the illegal alien states created the census.

Back to your willfully ignorant mode.

Not my fault that you said slavery had nothing to do with the Electoral College. You knew better.

He may at one time. I doubt that is true now.
