The electoral college is unfair

Hillary won the popular vote by 566,434 votes. Why do we have the electoral college?!?!

For example, an electoral vote represents nearly four times as many people in California as in Wyoming.

How to Read Body Art

How is the observer intended to interpret the atemporal durational corporeal installative performance of an apple core tattooed to the left temple of a white male? Does the left side of the head indicate the leftward (cognitive) political leanings of the individual? The apple core representing the ingestion of sustenance that reveals the means of regeneration. Or is it indicative of Eve, an Illustration of the fault and acceptance of said fault of the fairer sex? What is the observer supposed to do if left up to her or his own devices?

Contemporizing JFK

And so, uh, my fellow Americans: like, ask not what your country can do, um, for you—ask what you can do for, for, for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America, like, you know, will do for you, but what together we can do, uh, for the freedom of man, you know what I mean. Finally, like, like, whether you are citizens of, you know, America or, like, citizens of the world, ask, um, of us the same high standards of, uh, um, you know, strength and sacrifice which we ask of you, yeah. So, with a good conscience our only sure reward, you know, with history the final judge of our, uh, deeds, let us, like, go forth to lead the land we love, you know, asking, uh, His blessing and, um, His help, but, like, knowing that here on earth, like, you know, God’s work must truly be our own.

Social Attitude Test

Political Values
These scores indicate that you are a progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a university professor. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a pragmatic attitude towards humanity in general.
Your attitudes towards economics appear neither committedly capitalist nor socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a political centrist. 
To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, an idealist with many strong opinions.
This concludes our analysis; we hope you found your results accurate, useful, and interesting.
Unlike many other political tests found on the Internet which base themselves on untested (and usually ideologically motivated) ideas, this inventory is adapted from Hans Eysenck’s own political inventory which was developed after extensive empirical investigations in the 20th Century.
