Campaigning for the Popular Vote is much easier & different than campaigning for the Electoral College. It’s like training for the 100 yard dash vs. a marathon. The brilliance of the Electoral College is that you must go to many States to win. With the Popular Vote, you go to….

….just the large States – the Cities would end up running the Country. Smaller States & the entire Midwest would end up losing all power – & we can’t let that happen. I used to like the idea of the Popular Vote, but now realize the Electoral College is far better for the U.S.A.

Poltico.com reported Tuesday that
Elizabeth Warren on Monday called for abolishing the Electoral College as part of an effort to expand voting rights, making her one of the first Democrats running for president in 2020 to propose such a radical shift in how U.S. presidents are elected.
In a CNN town hall in Jackson, Miss., the Massachusetts Democrat noted that deep-red states like Mississippi and deep-blue states like California are rarely visited by presidential candidates during general elections because of an overwhelming focus on the swing states with the most Electoral College votes.
“We need to make sure that every vote counts. And you know, I want to push that right here in Mississippi. Because I think this is an important point,” she said. “My view is that every vote matters. And the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting and that means get rid of the Electoral College.”
Proposals to eliminate the Electoral College have gained steam in the years since President Donald Trump’s 2016 defeat of Hillary Clinton; Clinton bested Trump in the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes but lost the Electoral College by a wide margin thanks to close defeats in a handful of key states.
Trump’s victory has given way to momentum for a national popular vote, but the Electoral College’s enshrinement in the Constitution has prompted renewed interest in workarounds to spring up like the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, in which member states pledge their Electoral College votes to the winner of the national popular vote.
The Democratic Party is showing signs of desperation.
The Democrats, as a result of their own regional bias toward the major metropolitan areas on the East and West Coasts, which has been obvious to average Americans for the last several decades, effectively divorced themselves from the people whom they claimed in every previous election cycle to “love”…Average Working Class Americans.
To put it in Marital Terms, Average Working Class Americans and the Democratic Party are no longer “evenly yoked”.
The Democrats became the party of the “Upper Crust” and Special Interest Groups, who look down their noses at Americans who live here in “Flyover Country”.
The Democrats assumed, after reading their own press clippings, that all Americans wanted the Progressive/Marxist Political Ideology and style of governance which Barack Hussein Obama practiced during his time as President.
Well, we all know what assuming does, don’t we, boys and girls?
The American People overthrew the “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we have suffered under for a very long 8 years on November 8th, 2016.
America’s founders were Not Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky.
Our actual founders did not create our Sovereign Nation to be governed by Mob Rule.
Our Founding Fathers, in their infinite wisdom, created this Blessed Land as a Constitutional Republic in order to provide fair and equal representation to all areas of the country, whether they be densely populated “urban” areas or sparsely populated “rural” areas.
No American’s vote is more important than somebody else’s.
When I voted down here, outside Memphis, Tennessee, in the Northwest Corner of the Magnolia State on November 8, 2016, it counted the same as a Democrat voting in one of the boroughs of New York City.
The Founders created and put in place the Electoral College in order to prevent just what the “Democratic Socialists” in the New Far left Democratic Party have been crying for since they lost the 2016 Presidential Election: a nation where its leaders are selected by mob rule in which special interest groups of a minority political philosophy joined together to form a voting bloc in order to “radically change” the course of a Sovereign Nation.
In the case of Modern America Liberals, such as Senator Elizabeth Warren, this would have allowed her and her Fellow Travelers to change our Constitutional Republic into a “Democratic” Socialist Nation, a form of government based on Marxist Theory which has never worked in any country in which it has been tried.
If that is the sort of country you wish to live in, Senator Warren…move to Venezuela.
I am certain that they could use your “help”.
One of our Founding Fathers, James Madison, explained in no uncertain terms why he and his fellow patriots did not form our Sovereign Nation as a “democracy”…
[In a pure democracy], [a] common passion or interest will, in almost every case, be felt by a majority of the whole; a communication and concert results from the form of government itself; and there is nothing to check the inducements to sacrifice the weaker party or an obnoxious individual. Hence it is that such democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths
Madison, who would go on to become president, was a prophet.
He not only predicted the problems of governing by “democracy”, he predicted the flaws in Marxist Theory, as well.
American will not survive as a nation if the Democrats are allowed to divide the American people as the “Haves” and the “Have Nots’ through the purposeful elimination of the Electoral College.
Average Americans must once again stand up our hind legs and protect the future of our Sovereign nation for the sake of our children and our children’s children.
The Electoral College MUST remain in place in order to ensure that our nation will not endure the same fate as every other failed experiment in Marxism.
America MUST remain a Constitutional Republic.
Until He Comes,
