Original Article

The Gathering Threat to the Electoral College—and to the U.S. Senate. The left has a hot new cause: getting rid of the Electoral College. And if the left succeeds in doing away with that venerable institution, its next target, the U.S. Senate, will fall like a dried apple. As is so often the case with leftist causes these days; the spearhead is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York; being social-media-savvy and telegenic, she’s the star of the progressive A-Team. Way back on October 6, 2018, AOC was tweeting: It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power

This woman is a dangerous upstart mouthpiece of her communist handlers. The media do us no favors expounding on her every utterance, devoid of common sense and morality, on a 24/7 basis. Enough. Let the electoral college stand. Fight for it's preservation. Our founding fathers were a whole heap wiser and far better educated than today's " products of academia.'

All these years of not speaking up, letting Hollywood permeate every aspect of culture, taking God out of society, allowing government to kick the can down the road, and letting abortion define life are things that come to my mind when I think about the demise of character in this country. AOC, among many others, is a result or consequence of what has happened in this country. Sad.

AOC speaks the language of the Millennials, hyperbolic with no regard for truth or facts. She is a product of that generational culture specifically. She is also a tool of the older democrats to use to engage young people who are uneducated about our government among many other things. Whether her ideas are feasible or not, it doesn’t matter, it is emotion that she invokes that fuel their discontent and hatred. What reasonable people find so outrageous is that she continues to spout blatant untruths and downright laughable statements on subjects she clearly knows nothing about. However, that is her super power and why she is a democrat superstar. She is shamefully ignorant and engaging but willing to say anything regardless how absurd. She is the face of many millennials in this country. They are dangerously uninformed but arrogantly assured that they have all the answers. The battle lines have been drawn. Ignorant but arrogant socialism or informed and reasoned freedom.

You want to start a civil war? Eliminate the Electoral College. When the people in ''flyover country'' ( a demeaning term used by democrats for patriotic Americans) realize that they have no voice in government, and must submit to authoritarian rule of the urban ''elites'' (now a dirty word) they will not roll over and take it. America is not a pure democracy for that reason. I wonder what these looney democrats will say when President Trump wins in an electoral and a popular vote landslide?

Our founders feared the tyranny of the majority for good reason, They, above all, institutionalized tolerance by protecting unalienable rights which 51% do not have the authority to infringe upon. The electoral college accomplishes the same thing at the state level. Yes California and New York you have to tolerate Alabama.

OK I'll go along with this (it's a stupid idea this is a disclaimer) then what if it's done in the 2020 election and President Trumps wins some bluer than blue states with the popular vote maybe even New York and remains president. Can you imagine the scowl and madness from the left? The state I live in supports this idiocy of popular vote along with a few others but the Electoral College should not be dabbled with by stupid people like AOC the dumb down x-bartender.

Exactly #10. This is why we must turn out the Trump vote big time. Even if your state is believed to be an assured win for PDT, vote and make it happen. We must overcome Dim fraud and help PDT win the popular vote as well. Liberal 'splodey heads make for great entertainment. This Dim nonsense about eliminating the Electoral College will end if The Donald wins the national popular vote.

The lack of common sense reasoning on the part of anyone in the electorate is appalling. It is not difficult to imagine examples of why a pure democracy is one of the most severe forms of tyranny and must be avoided (three wolves and two sheep vote on what's for dinner?). It is also not difficult to understand how cynical members of the Democrat ruling class lean toward a pure democracy because it will result in increasing their power through their use of proven propaganda techniques, even though they are well aware of the tyranny of the majority that will result.

AOC reminds me of someone from the Capital in the Hunger Games. She lived in the city where everything they have is provided by the districts (flyover country to her). She seems to think that the people are dumb and that the food and everything else just magically just appears in the city. They do not appreciate the little people who actually work and produce everything that they have and gives them their standard of living. Maybe the Unimportant small states, that is every state that is not on the North East coast or California should go on strike and stop sending their things to these unappreciative places and see how well they do without "flyover country".

My 7th grade Social Sciences teacher had us read "Anthem" (that was my first book by Ayn Rand, went on to read others after that) . . . I read it again a few years ago, on my Kindle and recalled how much it seemed like science fiction but COULD actually happen, if Socialists were allowed to get a hold of things and send us down that path. "Anthem" provides the perfect illustration . . . I think . . . if people like Ocasio-Cortez are able to convince enough other people . . ."Climate Change" and overturning our electoral college are part of that.

FTA: "And when we say “pledged,” we should mean, yes, an actual pledge. Or better yet, pledges—pledges to defend the Electoral College and also, relatedly, to defend the U.S. Senate." What the author suggests seems a bit silly. Since the EC was clearly defined and established within the original language of the Constitution, it would take a Constitutional amendment to abolish it, which would require either two thirds of both houses of Congress to propose - or - by a constitutional convention called by two thirds of the state legislatures. Either way, once proposed, it would take three fourths of the states to ratify it to become the law of the land. If the democrats can do that, then the EC is gone. Short of that, it can't be abolished by communist sentiment, at least not without a shooting' war.

My guess is that 13 "small states" would be very hard to convince that it's in their best interest to amend the constitution and get rid of the electoral college. Then again, we saw a Marxist elected twice as president, so anything is possible in this day and age.

To call this woman moronic is just too easy. She is an evil danger and we all need to be aware. It is also time to kill this shell game that Hillary "won" the popular vote and buried Trump. Yes, her "victory" in that regard was 2.86 million more votes. BUT ALL OF THOSE VOTES came from 5 --- yes, 5 --- counties. Los Angeles County (not just the city) which delivered 1.27 million more votes for Hillary than The Donald, while New York County (a/k/a "Manhattan") coughed up a difference of 457k for her and King's County (otherwise known as "Brooklyn") delivered 681k more for her than Trump. The Queens Co. margin for her was 335K and finally, the Bronx gave her 284k more than Trump. If you removed those five counties (just those five!) from her total vote, then Trump wins the popular vote too by about 165,000 --- and not just the Electoral College. I'll be damned if only 5 lousy counties (out of 3,141 total) one from the far Left coast and 4 from the whacky denizens of NYC get to decide who POTUS is. Luckily, Trumps' people realized that too and campaigned in "fly-over country".

I hate to tell you folks but those of us in BLUE States with large metropolitan areas, say New york State and New York City, are ALREADY DISENFRANCHISED and have been for years. Voting here is for patriotic reasons only, as a vote against the population centers has no meaning. An upstate city with a population of 50K is a David against NYC's Goliath with about 20M people, even though approx 95% of the geographical area is outside the population center. There are easily 15 different groups attempting to split the State so those of us outside of NYC actually can cast a vote that counts. The Gov could care less.

While most people roll their eyes when Edith Ann talks nonsense, she is a dangerous tool of the far left. She isn't speaking to you or I, only the indoctrinated youth of this country; the whiners and protesters. Does not matter if she is factual. Obola set the stage for her and her teammates. I am betting she is in the news everyday because someone pays for her to be in our faces. Who more than Shillary wants the electoral college to disappear? Young people have no clue about propaganda or her buzz words.

Dirty cop Robert Mueller helped the Saudi government cover up its involvement in the 9/11 terror attacks when he was FBI Director, according to a new lawsuit. Citing former FBI investigators, investigative reporter Paul Sperry says in a new report that the FBI uncovered evidence of efforts by the Saudi government to help the hijackers in the run-up to the September 11 terror attacks. Mueller, who was the head of the FBI at the time helped cover up the evidence pointing back to the Saudi Embassy and Riyadh — even worse, Mueller may have lied to Congress about what he knew about the Saudi involvement.

Donald Trump wants people to think he’s a winner. So why does he act like a loser? Winners convey a sense of effortless superiority. They don’t have to work at it. You just know they’re above it all. If someone tries to criticize them, it’s beneath their dignity to worry about it. It’s just a little speck they brush off their shoulder. The Brits are good at that, Boris Johnson especially. We still don’t know how things will turn out there, but I expect his aplomb will carry him through. “There are no disasters,” he once joked. “Only opportunities.

The presidential candidate made the comments on Wednesday at a climate town hall on CNN after he was asked by an attendee about rising populations and how the planet "can not sustain this growth." The questioner, identified by CNN as a teacher named Martha Readyoff, said that she realized linking population control to climate was a topic "poisonous for politicians, but it's crucial to face."
