Desperate Dems embrace NPV absurdity

The National Popular Vote has emerged among the latest schemes of Democrat politicians. They are also enamored with open borders and lowering the voting age to 16. Now that marijuana is mainstreamed, desperate Dems see a clear pathway to winning elections…the Constitution be damned.

Donald Trump’s 2018 sweeping presidential victory, which dazed the Democrats like a direct hit of a lightening bolt has made them eager to explore every absurdity to gain control. If it takes mind numbed teens, illiterate in American history and our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights, who have never paid a bill or taxes to fulfill their dream, Dems are onboard giving them the vote. Obliterating Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and allowing all comers to invade the United States is an integral part of the plan, since they will be low hanging fruit ripe for Democrat picking. Why should citizenship matter? Democrat candidates are also hoping to pack the Supreme Court by inflating the number of leftist justices. Read the history of that scam attempted by Democrat President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1937 in the last two paragraphs of this post.

In 2016 Breitbart News headlined, “MoveOn.org Petition Demands: ‘Abolish the Electoral College,” which laid the groundwork for this George Soros backed movement.

Our Founders specifically included the Electoral Vote to forestall the inherent dangers of what James Madison called “the tyranny of the majority.” This Heritage Foundation commentary, Preventing “The Tyranny of the Majority by Edwin J. Feulner is listed as a two minute read. You won’t spend a more enlightening two minutes today.

Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution grants the power to elect the president and vice president to the states through the system known as the Electoral College. Under the Constitution, the highest-ranking U.S. officials elected by the direct popular vote of the people are the governors of the states.

The Electoral College gives smaller and rural states with lower populations an equal voice. If the popular vote alone decided elections, presidential candidates would have no need to visit those states or consider the needs of rural residents in their policy platforms. The Electoral College dynamics require candidates to get votes from multiple states — large and small — ensuring that the president addresses the needs of the entire country. America’s Founders, in their wisdom, also wanted the Electoral College system to enforce the concept of federalism — the division and sharing of powers between the state and national governments.

There are 538 possible electoral votes. 270 electoral votes are required for a candidate to win the electoral college vote. This was the 2016 election breakdown. With the National Popular Vote, Hillary Clinton would be sitting in the Oval Office.

Declared and still exploring Democrat presidential candidates might be adversaries, but they are unified in their desire to gut our Constitution. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, (D-Mass) and Bob O’Rourke, (D-TX); support doing away with the Electoral College. Sen. Cory Booker, (D-N.J); has expressed a desire to increase the number of justices on the Supreme Court and term limit them. Bob also supports expanding the high court.  Sen. Kamala Harris, (D-CA) supports uncontrolled illegal immigration and free education and healthcare for all. Socialist Bernie Sanders (S-VT) ditto. Like her fellow candidates, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, (D- NY) is for whatever sucker punches the GOP and takes out President Trump.

The U.S. Constitution provides for a separation of powers, dividing the federal government into three distinct branches to ensure no individual or group will have too much power: Legislative (makes laws), Executive (carries out laws) and Judicial (interprets laws) — operate independently.

It should be abundantly clear by now that Democrats have no use for the Constitution.

    For the vast majority of 16-17 would-be voters, it goes beyond “mind numbed.” They’ve been under the control of nefarious RedForEd educrats all their lives. It’s bad enough the age is 18. It should be RAISED to at least 21 – and limited to individuals who can both prove U.S. citizenship AND are not qualified to be listed as dependents on anyone’s tax return. If RedForEd union thugs get them for 12+ years, it’s only fair they also be required to experience the effects of socialist Democrat taxation for at least a few years as well in order to provide them with a complete and balanced perspective of the real world so that they might make informed decisions.

      Excellent assessment. I’ve commented previously about a neighbor’s son who was an honor student at a local public high school. I would sometimes engage him in conversation if he was shooting baskets in the front yard when I was doing yard work.

      The best description of this “honor student” was when we spoke on September 11, and I mentioned the significance of the day. He stared at me blankly. When I stated the fact that 3,000 people were killed at the World Trade Center in New York by hijacked commercial airliners that also aimed for the Pentagon in Washington, DC. intentionally killing all aboard, he said, “Oh yeah, that’s when the government began blaming Muslims for everything.” After I regained my composure, I mentioned that all of the 19 hijackers who commandeered the airliners were Muslim. He glared at me and replied that was a bigoted, racist lie. He then bounced his ball back to his driveway. I wanted to tell him Muslim was a religion, not a race, but thought better of it, realizing he’s a product of the public school educrats. After that encounter I only waved at him. We never exchanged another word.

      This moron won a scholarship to ASU.

    Why not follow the policy of major car rental companies?
    You have to be 25 years old to rent a car.
    (there are some exceptions to this, along with hefty fees)

    President Trump is at Mar-a-Lago meeting with leaders from Haiti, the DR, and other island countries today.

    Likely preparing them for difficult truths that are about to be revealed.
    Nothing in the history of the world could prepare people for this.

    Meanwhile,
    It was stunning to see New Zealand female TV news readers all wearing the hajib while regurgitating the “news”.
    In 2017, there were a total of 35 murders in New Zealand, and now they are voluntarily giving up their guns because of a false flag event.

    Not only do the Democrats have no use for the Constitution, they are also willing to bankrupt our country with the promise of free everything. This appeals to the under-educated and propagandized Millennial voters who are supportive of Socialism and Communism over Capitalism, which they define as based in ‘greed.”

    Thank their leftwing unionized public school teachers for creating a generation of imbeciles.

    This is long, but definitely worth viewing and sharing with others. We are facing disaster in the USA brought to us by the Dimocrap Party and spoon fed to our kids within the public schools our tax dollars support.
