Today, the Democrats are losing their war to transform America into a Socialist Dystopia, as they see to destroy and eliminate the power and influence of the Electoral College! In fact, the Delaware House of Representatives recently passed a bill that would give the state’s Electoral College votes to the candidate who wins the popular vote. The bill passed the Delaware House last week by a vote of 24-17 to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, and the Democrat Delaware Governor said that he would sign it upon reaching his desk.
Representative David Bentz (D-DE) sponsored the bill said…
“We’re already overlooked. Delaware is seen as this true blue state. And if you’re a Republican voter what is your motivation to vote? Because you know at the end of the day Delaware’s three electoral votes will go to that Democrat. If you’re a Democrat maybe you’re not motivated either because you know you don’t have to.”
However, his case for the bill is not only weak, but it is also distorted and filled with ridiculous and preposterous fallacies! After all, his case for Republican voters not being motivated to vote due to knowing they will lose, and Democrats, because they assume they will win, is ludicrous! After all, now Delaware’s votes will not go to the winning Party of the State, but to the overall national popular vote! In other words, it doesn’t really matter how and who votes in their State, only how the rest of the United States votes! Therefore, it waters down small states voices, as the biggest States and most Populous states will get a voice in who will be President of the United States!
Furthermore, it fails to note exactly WHY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS CREATED THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE! In reality, it was to prevent Elitists like the now Marxist Democrats from leaving our federal elections in the hands of the elite coasts, California and New York, as they erode the influence of the Constitution of the United States!
In addition to Deleware, the following States have signed away their States Electoral College votes including
- Connecticut – 7 electoral votes
- Hawaii – 4 electoral votes
- Illinois – 20 electoral votes
- Maryland – 10 electoral votes
- Massachusetts – 11 electoral votes
- New Jersey – 14 electoral votes
- Washington – 12 electoral votes
- Vermont – 3 electoral votes
- California – 55 electoral votes
- Rhode Island – 4 electoral votes
- New York – 29 electoral votes
- Colorado – 9 electoral votes
The Democrats goal is to have enough States join their plan so that there are enough states to total the number of electoral votes to win a presidency. That magic number is 270 Electoral College votes.
Our Founding Fathers established our constitution in the 1787 Constitutional Convention. They knew that direct elections were dangerous and would give highly populated states the bulk of power in the Federal government, and less populated, more rural states, less power. As a result, they conceived the Electoral College system, which distributed 538 electoral votes between the various states to determine the President of the United States. It gives one elector per U.S. Senator, totaling 100 electors. Later, Congress passed the 23rd Amendment, which allocated 3 electors to Washington D.C. The number of Senators always remains static, and likewise, the electors allocated by those Senators do as well. However, the 435 electors that are based on the allocation of the House of Representatives is a much different story. In all, the House member allocation of electors totals 85% of the Presidential electors in all. The House of Representatives are reapportioned, according to the census population numbers, and therefore fluid.
Representative Steve Cohen (D-TN) even took it so far as to make the outlandish claim that our Founding Fathers ‘Conceived the Electoral College in sin’, as a means to perpetuate slavery! In fact, on CNN’s Tuesday episode of “Right Now,” Representative Cohen (D-TN) discussed Senator Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) call to abolish the Electoral College, as he stated…
“The country is different than it was when the Constitution was drafted. When the Constitution was drafted, a lot of it had to do with slavery. The slave states wanted equal representation in the Senate because they wanted to keep slavery. The slave states wanted to have an electoral college where the members that they had in Congress counted towards the vote for president, where the slaves counted as two-thirds and in the popular vote they would count as zero. So the slave states didn’t want a popular election because their slaves wouldn’t count toward voting and the slave states would have less votes. This is all conceived in sin and perpetuating slavery on the American people and on the African-American people directly.”
However, like so many Democrats today, Cohen has twisted, perverted, and misconstrued the truth behind the electoral college! In fact, he flat out lied, as the ELECTORAL COLLEGE WAS CONCEIVED AND CREATED LONG BEFORE SLAVE STATES AND FREE STATES EVEN EXISTED! Therefore, his claim hits the level of ‘PANTS ON FIRE’, being the true purpose of the electoral college is to give smaller and less populated states a voice in elections and policies implemented! Today, the Democrats hate middle America who lives in the smaller and less populated States. THAT IS WHY DEMOCRATS FIGHT FOR AN END TO THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE! , Furthermore, if the Electoral College was to be eliminated, America would end up being run by California, New York, and the Metropolitan cities, as well as every United States President going forward, would be chosen by the urban and big state voters!.
On Tuesday night, President Trump highlighted the problem with the Democrats plans to abolish the Electoral College! He said…
Already, ENR exposed how on “Real Time” with Bill Maher, the hate-driven comedian derided Middle Americans who live in red states as being envious of blue-state elitists, the red carpet Hollywood Elitists, as well as, the fact that the Middle Class can’t afford anything but Target! He claimed that there is no longer one America, but instead two America’s, with one being the wealthier cities and Democrat blue states, and the other being the poorer rural states, which he chided as full of the ‘ignorant and uneducated’ envious Americans! Sadly, his comments didn’t bring about outrage by the leftist Democrats in attendance, but instead laughter and thunderous applause!
Maher then went on to not only attack the Middle Class and Poor in America but to call the states that they reside in that typically vote Republican, the…
He then went on to claim that those who live in the blue voting Democrat States are superior to the ‘other America’, as he said…
“We have a problem in America called spatial geographic inequality which means the most affluent and educated people are clustered in just a few cities. We have orchestras and theaters districts and world-class shopping. We have Chef Wolfgang Puck, they have Chef Boyardee. The blue parts of America are having a big prosperity party while the big sea of red feels like their invitation got lost in the mail — and they still use the mail.”
He then said that red states that voted for Republicans were “pissed off,” because they were envious of the Elites, as he said…
“The fly-over states have become the passed-over states, that’s why red state voters are so pissed off. They don’t hate us, they want to be us.”
However, what big-headed egotistic Elitists like Bill Maher don’t understand is, Middle America doesn’t care about eating caviar, blowing millions on outlandish and self-satisfying parties! Middle America doesn’t care about driving cars that cost more than their homes! Middle America doesn’t care about living in the theatre districts, or going to over-priced world-class shopping malls! Middle America doesn’t even care about living in mansions with servants, personal trainers, and chefs to cater to their every whim! WHY? Simply because those are not really the things that matter in life to middle America! In fact, Middle America still holds much of the same values as our Founding Fathers, with a respect for freedom, America, God, and all of his creation!
Even one of the greatest Presidents in American history understood the Elitist problem that was permeating the left, and how Democrats looked down on the American people. For example, former President Ronald Wilson Reagan once said…
“It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.”
Today, it is sad how so many Americans have not only turned their back on America, but they have turned their backs on their fellow brothers and sisters in the United States! At the founding of our nation, the men and women throughout America did whatever it took to look after their families, their neighbors, and their friends! Now, the Marxist political ideology has taken over the Democrat Party, as they have miseducated our youth, in order to build their pro-Socialist, pro-Marxist army, designed to work towards the eradication of the freedoms and rights that we have been blessed with since the founding of our great nation!
Now, as they call us the “deplorable”, as they call us “ignorant”, as they call us ‘spacial and geographically’ challenged, and as they call us the envious, they fail to understand what makes us GREAT! They fail to understand that we love Middle America! They fail to understand that we don’t value the almighty dollar, but instead the almighty God! They fail to understand that we don’t envy their million dollar homes, or expensive cars. or fancy jobs, because we have something much more valuable than materialistic things! We have family and true friendships! They fail to understand that while they have acquired Ivy-League educations based on lies and a distorted Socialist and Marxist ideology, Middle America has chosen to think for themselves, educated themselves, and based their lives on the most important book ever written…THE BIBLE!
Therefore, Ronald Reagan was right to say that “It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.” After all, THEY JUST DON’T GET IT! They don’t understand that Middle America has waited for decades to see a political leader to not only say that they represent all Americans, but to actually follow through with their actions in standing up for their values, their rights, and their beliefs! Democrats have stood up for their Elitist constituents in the cities, the coasts, and in DC! Republicans and Democrats have both said that they represent Middle America, but only a few Democrats actually have, and only about 3/4 of Republicans! Middle America has pleaded to have a President that says what he means, and does what he says! NOW WE HAVE JUST THAT MAN, PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP!
Today, Democrats don’t understand why Middle America supports this man, but it is simple! He not only says that he supports what the Middle Class and Poor in America want, but he follows through in action! Today, President Trump has become one of the greatest Presidents in history, as he is fighting for the forgotten men and women in America! President Trump said that he would fight for Middle America, and he has, and continues to fight for us! We may shop at Wal-Mart or Target! We may live in houses that pale in comparison to the Elitists who try an tell us how to vote! We may drive cars that pale in comparison to their Ferraris, Limos, and Lamborghini’s! We may eat out at McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, or Chic-Fil-A instead of fine dining restaurants! However, they fail to understand that those are not what is important in life to us, or even for themselves! They wonder why so many of their own die of drug overdoses, slit their wrists or drink themselves into rehab yearly! Sadly, it is because THEY JUST DON’T GET IT! After all, they might be financially the richest men and women in America, but Middle Americans are truly the richest people throughout our nation, as they cherish what is most important…family, friendship, and the Lord God himself!
Now, the Democrats are going after Middle America’s voices in elections! Therefore, if they are successful in destroying the Electoral College, if they water down the Constitution by bypassing the protections that our Founding Fathers put in the document to protect the voices of ‘We the People’, our nation will be doomed to poverty, and the evils of Marxism! In fact, it would be the largest act of voter suppression perpetrated on the American people, in the history of our nation!
