Trump defends electoral college after Warren, O’Rourke call to abolish it

Original Article

Posted By: JoniTx, 3/20/2019 5:58:57 AM

President Trump defended the electoral college on Tuesday following calls by presidential hopefuls Elizabeth Warren and Beto O’Rourke to abolish the system. “The brilliance of the Electoral College is that you must go to many States to win,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday night. “With the Popular Vote, you go to… just the large States – the Cities would end up running the Country.” The statement came one day after Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat, said during a CNN town hall event that she would back a plan to scrap the process and move to a national popular vote. “My view is

Right now, every donkey is for everything their kooky base wants. Its like a kid in a candystore time for these moonbats. Get rid of the EC? Sure, I´m for it. Pack the Supreme Court, hey sounds good to me. Bankrupt the country and put the economy back to the stone ages? No problemo, I´m on it. Destroy the border and impeach DJT? You got it.

Its all just fluff and hot air. They can´t possibly be this dangerously deranged. Or could they? If the donks seriously plan on delivering these goodies, you can kiss the US goodbye on your way out.

Right, Senator Warren. Every single solitary fraudulent vote should count. Every iGualemalan, illiterate in his own language let alone English, whose ballot was planted and harvested by some college professor’s student battalion of know-nothing useful idiots should count. That’s democracy!

#1, is right. The far left base has pushed the democrat party so far left any wacky idea sounds perfectly reasonable. When your sole purpose is to win by any means possible the door to radicalism is thrown open. The party has jumped the shark. Reasonable Americans are appalled by what they are witnessing from them. The corruption, cheating, lying, entitlement mentality and lurch to embrace solcialism is frightening to most Americans. Democrats are failures. Just look at the cities they run. They are complete disasters. The only thing they are well equipped for is destruction.

There is a day of reckoning coming in 2020 and their only hope is to cheat their way to victory. Eliminating the Electoral College is a must if they want to survive their own suicidal tendencies. Let them bray at the moon with their foolishness. Their policies are failures offering nothing but misery and despair. Now if we can get the Republicans to take advantage and hammer home their incompetency, corruption, and radicalism we just might win bigly!

The electoral college vote balances out the popular vote and that benefits the American people. Each side wants to abolish it because of the loss of the previous election.

Democrats can´t handle loss because they absolutely do not like working with the Republicans. Democrats view the constraints placed on them as a bad thing because they want it all and want nobody to hold back.

As an American taxpayer, I want both the electoral college and popular vote to stay in place. It is becoming too easy for voter fraud in big cities.

The President is correct--the big cities would run the country. Think of that.

So many of our big cities are under longstanding democrat control, and they are in a fiscal, social, and environmental mess. The whole nation would be come an expanded Detroit, Baltimore, Chicago, Atlanta, Newark or Memphis.

Those cities are models of democrat socialist run utopia, and the American citizens in flyover country need to learn from that.

Remember this famous World Series (analogy)?

Game 1: Reps won 1-0
Game 2: Reps won 1-0
Game 3: Reps won 1-0
Game 4: Dems won 6-1
Game 5: Reps won 1-0

And the Dems were convinced they had won it. If I could send an email to our nation´s founders, the Electoral College would be among the top 5 things for which I would express my compliments and gratitude.

The leftist and liberal Democrats lost the last presidential election, are the minority in the Senate, and have lost out on Supreme Court nominees. So those Democrats now want to change US Constitutional provisions in ways that they think will result in them being the future permanently dominant political party on into the future. Those constitutional rules have been in force for about 250 years, are settled law, have served the country well, and should not be changed now because one political party lost a presidential election.

You say ya want to do away with the Electoral College because you keep losing? I hear ya Dems --- and I feel your pain.

Okay ... let´s compromise. Whoever gets the most counties wins! No? Don´t like that one either? h-m-m.

How about the person who wins absolutely MUST cover the most square miles of the country? Don´t like that one either, huh?

Gee ... I´ve got it! The person who does BOTH things at once should win.

I´ve been thinking about the Electoral College. In a way, it is similar to the way a legislator in the United Kingdom becomes Prime Minister.

In the UK, British subjects do not elect a Prime Minister directly. Rather, they vote for representatives -- Ministers of Parliament -- from their districts. Then the leader of the majority party (or majority coalition of parties) is invited by the Sovereign (Queen Elizabeth) to form a government.

So . . . the UK does not have a pure democracy either. Just saying . . . ours isn´t the only nation who isn´t a pure democracy.

The Dems thought they had the edge to finally transform the country into the liberal bastion they envisioned after Obama won.

Then, they figured Hillary would take over the reigns and finish the job by electing 3-4 Supreme Court justices, and work to change the rules, laws and regulations in such a profound way that the country would no longer resemble one just 30-40 years ago.

The best way to "change" the Electoral College is to have proportional allocation, and remove winner-take-all state decisions which actually disenfranchises voters.

435 House EC districts, have each allocated by winner of the popular vote, then 100 Senators which would be allocated by each Senators preference(likely partisan).

No longer will 5-6 states be considered "swing" states deciding elections.

No longer will Republicans avoid California since they don´t see any pay-off, but could find 7-10, or more EC votes possibly.
No longer could Democrats count on 55 EC votes in California, and no longer could Republicans count on 38 EC votes in Texas (there are 18 Dem House seats in TX).

People who thought their votes didn´t matter, would likely come out and vote since it would.

None requires a constitutional amendment either, just a change in each State´s allocation of EC votes.

Both players are playing be the same rules, but when Democrats get beat, they want to change the rules... unless they get beat again... than they want the rule changed back.

I believe the Dems don´t understand the Electoral College. If it were dropped, no candidate would ever campaign in states other than NY, CA, Texas, IL maybe FL and NJ because they are heavy population centers. All that money would go to those states for Primaries and Elections.
But, the bigger picture is which states would receive the most federal pork dollars after the election? Yup, the same states. So the other 45 or so states will become the tax cash cows for the big five. The 45 probably will be covered with wind farms and solar panels anyway. Wonder where our food will come from.

Less than a day after accepting a lucrative contract to lobby congress against Russia sanctions, a former John Kasich adviser has announced he is now backtracking and will reject the agreement. John Weaver has worked on many failed presidential campaigns — John McCain’s, John Huntsman’s, and Kasich’s — and on Wednesday accepted a contract worth $350,000 to lobby against sanctions on Russia. Weaver and his former boss Kasich had previously accused President Donald Trump’s campaign of colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

During his remarks, the president assailed some asylum seekers’ abuses of the country’s immigration system. “Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims,” he said. Acosta promptly accused the president of portraying

Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities hit a 22-month low in March, according to data released today by the U.S. Treasury. As of February, entities in the People’s Republic of China had owned $1,130,900,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities. But in March that dropped to $1,120,500,000,000—a decline of $10,400,000,000. The last time entities in China owned less than $1,120,500,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities was in May 2017, when Chinese holdings were $1,102,200,000,000. Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities peaked more than five years ago in November 2013 at $1,316,700,000,000. They are now $196,200,000,000—or 14.9 percent--below that peak.
