Unhinged anti-Trump Dems seek new remedy

Impeachment won’t play out, so despondent Dems turn to abolishing Electoral College as support for the system rises

The thrust for change in our nation’s election process isn’t new. In more recent times it peaked in 2000 when Democrat Al Gore, with the majority of popular votes (48.4%), lost to George W. Bush (47.9%) who won the Electoral College vote 271 – 266. There were renewed calls from the left to abandon the system when Donald Trump (45.9%) was victorious over Hillary Clinton (48.0%) in 2016. The Electoral College vote was 232 for Hillary and 306 for Trump. Clinton also had five defectors. One, from Washington state, voted for Faith Spotted Eagle.

The general election in November is an indirect election, where voters cast ballots for a slate of members of the Electoral College. These electors, in turn, directly elect the President and Vice President. Our nation’s founders put this system, which has served us well for over 230 years, in place for a reason. Each state regardless of size or population has two senators. But states with higher populations are not able to overwhelm less densely populated states. Without the Electoral College, states like California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and New York would have disproportionate influence in the nation’s elections. The number of electors is equal to the number of U. S. Senators and Representatives to which each state is entitled in Congress.

Like spoiled children, dejected Democrats, are flailing about trying to overturn the 2016 election of Donald Trump, who is doing exactly what he promised — to the delight of the majority of American citizens, benefiting from the Trump tax cuts, increased purchasing power and historically low unemployment. His unprecedented meetings with North Korean and Chinese leaders and discussions on nuclear disarmament have opened the door to making the world a safer place.  Facing contentious battles, he has added two justices on the U.S. Supreme Court.

This Gallup poll taken within weeks of the 2016 election of President Trump, shows Americans’ support for the electoral college has risen sharply.

Dissolute Dems have little chance of reining in the Electoral College, which is enshrined in our Constitution. Eliminating it requires a Constitutional amendment. That’s a two-thirds vote in both the House and the Senate and the ratification of three-fourths (38) of the 50 states — a virtual impossibility.

    The Left are a bunch of arsonists.

    Rally tonight with President Trump. “Big, big announcement. . . . ”

    By the way,
    Goog, Facebook, Gmail, and Chrome “breached”.
    No.
    Your info has been given to a “third party” affiliated with the D’s.
    Has to do with the upcoming election.

    Jack Dorsey (Goog) knew about the “breach” (data sharing)when he testified before Congress and said nothing. As with Zuck.

    Maxine Waters epitomizes the looney left. Can you imagine she keeps getting elected? The Dems obviously don’t care who they send to Washington.

    • Saguaro Sam says:

      Rand Paul, today, in an interview on Kentucky radio, talks about his concerns about someone getting “assassinated” as a result of the Left’s rhetoric.

      Rand Paul’s wife stated yesterday that, because of all the threats directed at Republicans and Conservatives, she sleeps with a loaded gun at her bedside.

      Check out President Trump’s twitter account (Twitter has removed the blue check mark that indicates it is a “verified account” and they have also removed the word “President”).
      You will see just how unhinged the Left has become.
      They are Lost Forever.

      If you have not seen what is going on, on a daily basis, in Portland, OR.—you should be aware. Their police chief (first female African-American police chief in the US –with a Very, Very interesting Last Name—-is a solid Leftie whose Department is paid to look the other way.

      (I’ve authorized patients to be involuntarily committed to a psych ward for way less than this type of behavior.)

        Sam FYI The Check marks on The @RealDonaldTrump & @POTUS both have the BLUE Check marks along the statement “45th President of the United States”. Also, hasn’t Phoenix have a Female African-American Police Chief for the last few years ?

    The electoral college has withstood the test of time. Our Founders were wise men, notwithstanding they are derided today as all white males wearing wigs and breeches.

    Now America’s public school students are taught courses in “toxic masculinity, ” by their leftist, unionist teachers and our boys are being effeminized. It’s beyond sickening.

    The Boy Scouts which once had troops at every public school, were relegated to churches after scouting became too politically incorrect for the libs. Now many churches have abandoned the programs that taught loyally, resourcefulness and survival skills, honor, duty and respect. This all arose out of the Boy Scouts of America’s desire not to allow “gay” troop leaders. Would you want your son going on overnights with such leaders? I wouldn’t.

    • Mohave Mike says:

      Among the pack of reasons Bill Reilly lost his popular political show on Fox News was his humorous comparison of Maxine Waters wig to “The Godfather of Soul” James Brown’s hairdo. He was right! Besides which, this woman is an ignorant mess.

  4. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    The National Popular Vote movement resonates with the left for obvious reasons.

  5. Michael Schmitz says:

    Abolish the Electoral College, expand the Big Court to 11 to load up with liberal tyrants, abolish 2A, ignore 1A unless you agree with liberal madness, abolish ICE, abolish borders, open voting for non citizens, guilty until proven innocent, Medicare for all, abortion on demand, perverts in kids bathroom, fluid sex identification, overturn Citizens United but unlimited union and public employee contributions….the party of the truly insane. The Ds are no longer opponents, they are the enemy of the Constitution and rational civilized people.

    • State Committeeman says:

      You’ve outdone yourself! This is the best summary of the Dims and their agenda I’ve seen. It’s written in such a concise manner, yet illuminating their numerous failings. Why any rational people would align themselves with this destructive party is beyond me.
      Thanks, Michael. I hope you’re active in the Republican Party. If not, become a precinct committeeman. We need you!
