Hillary Clinton won the popular vote in the 2016 presidential election, but the people who voted for her were clustered (re: cloistered) within very small geographical areas (1).

Donald Trump won in 2626 counties.

Hillary Clinton won in 487 counties (2).

Taking lessons in political philosophy from ancient Greeks like Socrates, Plato and Aristotle (all of whom had deep misgivings about pure majority rule), America’s Founding Fathers (namely Alexander Hamilton) instituted the Electoral College.

Why do people who live in mega-populated urban areas tend to hallucinate a Democrat Party-dominated organized crime syndicate called the Federal Government as something good?
