Indeed. I am not suggesting that the article is nessesarily 100% accurate, nor that that particular article necessarily functions as a mouthpiece of the actual study itself, not indeed that the study might not be faulty.
What I ultimately railed against, was widars dogmatic refusal to engage with the point what-so-ever. He didn't offer any evidence to the contrary, he didn't make an attempt to prove it false merely via logical analyses and he didn't even read it.
He just flat out refused on no particular grounds at all, other than the merest fact that he personally believed it to be untrue. That was what I ultimately found so utterly disgusting amount him. Not that he disagreed with the article. It was the way he went about doing it.

If you look at this author's other articles you can see a very clear agenda playing out. The author is very anti-Obama, anti-Liberal, and anti-Islam, which is fine (freedom of speech) but he provides nothing to back the stats he claims. He isn't an objective scientist.

Like I said, faithless electing has occurred, and as the page I linked expounds, many of these lead to controversial points, the Bush/Gore election being far from the first, and it certainly won't be the last.
However, none of these have been demonstrated to alter the outcome of the election, though some (like the Bush/Gore) were frightfully close, and this lead to controversies that solidified the people's awareness to the issue.
And that's very important. People need to be more active in elections so they feel much more motivated to charge against electors should they vote against their will.
Cases like >>#134 mentioned should've had people gathered in large protests, demanding that the primaries bow heed to the people they're supposed to represent, not the other way around. But people are becoming way too docile with the elections, and it's leading to troublesome choices like the ones we have now.

I agree completely, awareness of these issues at the end of the day is important.

The more awareness we bring to issues like faithless electors, gerrymandering, or farther out issues like vote count fraud the more likely people will take a stand against it. The issue is, people are not aware and it's hard to fight an enemy they can't see.

Hopefully that force alone would convince more people to vote, especially in local elections.

Although there was also some fucky shit going on with the supreme court as well.

you are right of course.
the internet itself might be the one of the most powerful things in human history.
so let me rephrase my statement.
4chan memes =/= real power

Hillary fucking Clinton devoted a page on her site to Pepe
they made her address a meme and the alt-right
How the fuck is that not real power?

That only really matters if the president is corrupt and just hiring all their buddies to fill those seats. In most cases, the president just picks a bunch of people which the party proposed as the most competent for the job. And chances are those people aren't going to side with the president on every stupid decision they make, because it'd look sketchy as fuck and could get them kicked out. So, really, that shouldn't mean jack shit unless the president is a dickhead. And if they're a dickhead, chances are they've already got most congressmen in their pocket so who they hire hardly matters.

You really think most people would be scared of a skinny kid like that?

Most people would be scared about getting fired then having to explain why they were fired. An employer doesn't give a shit at all if you were morally correct, they want an employee who listens to instructions and handles challenges with critical thinking abilities.

True.
