The Democratic party leadership across the country really does hate the American Republic. They want to see it destroyed and replaced with a socialist democracy. Something our Founding Fathers were very afraid of having and took great steps to prevent it when they wrote the Constitution.
But today’s socialist leadership in the Democratic party being unable to get rid of, or ignore the Constitution, have taken steps to circumvent it’s protections. This is true in several states already that are controlled by this wicked Godless party. These states are California, New York, New Jersey, and Colorado.
Within these states their legislatures have already passed or in the process of passing legislation that gives all of the state’s Electoral College votes to whoever wins the national popular election. This is a very bad thing and the very reason why our Founding Fathers created the Electoral College in the first place and did not go with a simple popular vote for the higest office in the land and the free world.
How this works currently in most states is the popular vote it taken. Who ever gets the most votes in the State gets that state’s Electoral College votes. So the popular vote is used at the state level to determine the Electoral College results. Your vote does count. Some states even split that up on a proportional basis.
Going with a popular election only, and ignoring the Electoral College or stacking the deck against it in this case. This causes only large urban areas to be the voice in the national election for President. They have far more Electoral College votes. Let’s look at the current picture of those 4 states who have already taken steps to circumvent their voters rights by giving all of the Electoral College votes to the winner of the popular vote.
With in the Electoral Collage California has 55 votes, New York has 29 votes, New Jersey has 14 votes, and Colorado has 9 votes. That’s a total of 107 Electoral College votes. Currently only 270 votes are needed to win the Presidency. With just these 4 states, they are half way there on deciding who is the next President of the United States.
This creates an unfair situation that our Founders wanted to prevent from happening. Mob rule, the rule of Democracy. If other large states enact similar laws, it wont take long until those states alone will elect the President. It wont matter what the other states do or who they vote for individually or as a state wide result.
For example, let’s include traditional Democratic strong holds like the rest of the Left coast states of Oregon with 7 EC votes and Washington with 12 EC votes. That brings the total now to 126 EC votes with just 6 states. Now we include the East coast states of Mass. with 11 EC votes, Maryland with 10 EC votes, and Virginia with 13 EC votes. We now have a total of just 9 states and 160 EC votes.
We also can include the 2 Midwest states that are traditionally Leftist voting states of Minnesota with 10 EC votes and Illinois with 20 EC votes. This gives us now a total of 11 and 190 EC votes. Now the candidate is only 80 EC votes short of winning.
Add in the traditional swing states of Penn. with 20 EC votes, Ohio with 18 EC votes and Florida with 29 EC votes and the total is 257 EC votes given with the election results of only 14 states.
This can quickly escalate to the point that only the East and West coast states are needed to elect the President. All other states just wont matter and the election could be determined by those high density population centers.
I personally believe that these laws that are being enacted are Unconstitutional. And that the Electors should simply not follow them in those states that have enacted such laws that go against the Constitution of the United States. That is their right and duty as well.
