The Electoral College Is a
National Security Threat

Politico, by Matthew Olsen & Benjamin Haas

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 9/20/2017 1:01:17 PM

In Federalist No. 68, his pseudonymous essay on “The Mode of Electing the President,” Alexander Hamilton wrote that the Electoral College could shield the United States “from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.” (Snip) Hamilton and his colleagues never could have envisioned a year like 2016, when an enemy state—Russia—was able to manipulate America’s election process with stunning effectiveness. But it’s clear the national security rationale for the Electoral College is outdated and therefore it should be retired. Simply put, it enables foreign powers to more easily pierce the very shield Hamilton imagined

Comments:
I have never seen such a reckless, irresponsible article. What is extremely disturbing and disconcerting is that it is written by two individuals from the intelligence community. Olsen was appointed by GWB in the justice department and went on to work for Holder and Obama. Link below. Haas hates Trump as is show in the link below. Both of these individuals are beyond biased and it is breathtaking that if they are allegedly so intelligent would ever make such outrageous commentary.

Contd. FTA: "But what if the national popular vote determined the president instead of the Electoral College? No voter would be more electorally powerful than another. It would be more difficult for a foreign entity to sway many millions of voters scattered across the country than concentrated groups of tens of thousands of voters in just a few states. And it would be more difficult to tamper with voting systems on a nationwide basis....."

No voter would be more electorally powerful than another? Seriously? Those are some of the most egregious, reckless lies I have ever seen. We all know that if the EC was eliminated that California and the eastern corridor would determine our president. It would also guarantee voter fraud unlike what we have ever seen.

It´s no wonder so many of us are concerned about the fate of our country. There has never been more who have stepped forward in attempt to totally destroy it´s creation. An extremely dangerous change like this would turn us unto a county unlike any other dictatorship in the world where one party would be in power. It´s bad enough now!

Look at the name, fools. United States of America, not United Citizens of America.

The States get together in the Electoral College to elect the President.

Before that happens the individual, separate States hold a vote to decide how that the State´s Electors will vote. Each state should be equal to each other state, and it is actually unfair that California has so many electoral votes. IMO, it should be one vote for each state, but what we have is a compromise which helps the smaller states, even though the large states still have a huge advantage.

But people are so ignorant of the basics of the history and workings of our government that they say and think all sorts of foolish, uninformed and misinformed things.

Somewhere around $1 billion was spent to elect Hillzabub. But we are supposed to believe a handful of ads posted on the margins of a Facebook page tipped the balance in 3 states.

No, the EC is not a national security threat.

There are 538 EC votes.
3 from DC
100 U.S. Senators
435 U.S. House seat districts

No state should have winner-take-all, because it is actual voter disenfranchising voters who´s district voted Dem or Rep, but the state´s overall voters ended up electing the other side, then having their EC vote allocated to that winner of the state´s popular vote.

Allocate each of the 435 and 3 DC, by winner of the popular vote in each EC district.
It would likely motivate some who decide to sit on the sidelines to vote since they would now realize their vote would count in CA, if they are a Republican, and noting their district could be allocated to the GOP nominee.

Then have the 100 US Senator votes allocated by the desire of the US Senator occupying that office for that election.

No more targeting 5-6 "swing" states, which Hillary, BTW, knew and played that game, but lost.

Oh, give it up. The U.S.S.R. has been influencing American politics for many decades, by funding leftist front groups. The KGB funded American groups opposed to our involvement in WWII, until Germany invaded Russia. The KGB funded leftist groups to protest VietNam. None of this ever bothered Americans, because they were never told about it by the MSM.

Now suddenly Russian influence is something terrible. Just another narrative. If elections were determined by the popular vote, the left would just commit more vote fraud and import more illegal aliens, as they have been doing for decades.

Matthew Olsen & Benjamin Haas are a threat to National Security. The Electoral College has preserved it for over 237 years. The Politico has determined a solid conclusion on Russia manipulated our election process with stunning effectiveness. They should share their evidence with the investigations that have failed to find any such conclusion.

More Politico insanity.

Before the election, Hillary was aghast when Trump suggested the election process might be manipulated. It was. Many illegals and motor voters voted for Hillary. It may have flipped the NH Presidential and and Senate races.

And yet, sore loser Hillary still lost. She, more than most, should know HOW a president gets elected. She had no complaints before the election. Most liberals were OK with the electoral college because they were arrogantly confident they would win.

Now it´s whine, whine, whine all the time.

Liberals are the real threat to this nation. BO did just about EVERYTHING wrong. Trump has reversed significant amounts of the damage. If he had a Congress that had any guts he would have done far more. But the process by which he was elected worked as it should.

I might be wrong, but this could be the same Matthew Olsen who was a BO tool in a very powerful position. Powerful if he used his position against Americans instead of the enemy and that seems like his cup of tea. There is a Benjamin Haas whose idea of being a good American is burning the flag. He made the news at LSU for that kind of behavior. Both utter bottom dwellers.

President Trump will halt subsidy payments to insurers who sell coverage under Obamacare — a move that would deal a critical blow to the program, the White House confirmed Thursday night. “Based on guidance from the Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services has concluded that there is no appropriation for cost-sharing reduction payments to insurance companies under Obamacare,” the White House said in a statement.

NBC late-night host Seth Meyers on Wednesday night burned bridges with any remaining viewers of his who still support President Trump, telling them to go away and flipping them off. Inspired by Eminem´s anti-Trump freestyle rap at the BET Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday night, Meyers told Trump supporters to "get off the fence" and pick a side between the president and his show -- which he noted "constantly mocks and denigrates everything about [Trump]." "I know it´s a tough call," the smarmy host continued. "But the time has come to make a decision." He then rapped, "My name is Seth and I´m

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in talks with Columbia University to take on a formal role at the school. Multiple sources on Thursday told the New York Daily News that Clinton, a two-time failed presidential candidate, is also talking with Columbia about housing her archives at the Ivy League institution, the New York Daily News reported. The former law professor may take on the role of "University Professor," which would allow Clinton to lecture in multiple schools and departments without the requirement of a strict course load, a source told the Daily News. With this vague title, Clinton could potentially

Despite Chicago’s alarming, if select, murder statistics and routine singling out by President Donald Trump for gun violence, this lakeside metropolis was just ranked one of the safest cities in the world. The Economist Intelligence Unit, a London-based research firm affiliated with the Economist magazine, named Chicago to its 2017 Safe Cities Index, issued Thursday — one of only three US cities to crack the top 20 — largely based on advances in digital security. The annual ranking assesses 60 global cities using four factors: personal safety, health security, digital security and the safety of infrastructure. Chicago, at 19th-safest, narrowly trailed the other

No short-term political victory is worth the long-term cultural degradation the president is guaranteeing the GOP. The vast majority of commentary about Donald Trump’s tweets centers on Trump: What do they say about his state of mind? Do they signal a change in American policy? Will he follow through on his threats? Is he a master media manipulator or just angry? Is he playing nine-dimensional chess or is he simply undisciplined and impulsive? I want to focus on another question entirely: What are Trump’s tweets doing to the political character of his Republican supporters? I focus on his tweets because

Former President Barack Obama’s foundation mission is “to inspire and empower people to change their world.” So who better to fire up his audience for democratic change than a man whose family has headed the British state by divine right for the better part of 1,000 years? Royal heartthrob Prince Harry — fifth in line to the British throne, behind his niece, nephew, brother and father — is coming to Chicago on Oct. 31 to “empower participants with tools to create positive change in their communities,” according to the Obama Foundation, which will host Harry at its inaugural summit. While it’s true that

A successful Dallas businessman pledging to spend in the seven figures out of his own bank account to run for governor in 2018 should be a great get for Texas Democrats. Yet the party doesn´t seem to be getting behind Jeffrey Payne, whose business happens to be a gay bar. Payne, owner of gay leather bar The Dallas Eagle and winner of both the international and Texas Mr. Leather competitions in 2009, officially launched his campaign this week saying, "There´s no reason to think that someone who is gay can´t do a job, and here it´s being governor and representing
