Why the Left wants to abolish the Electoral College


 

December 29, 2016 | by Arthur Seaton

Hillary Clinton won a majority of the popular vote in the presidential election this year, receiving 2.8 million more votes than Donald Trump. Trump however, won the Electoral College with 307 electors and Clinton getting 232 electors.

The left immediately mobilized its activists and cronies in the media in a failed attempt to intimidate Republican Electors into violating their Constitutional duty and vote for Clinton. They sent 10’s of thousands of emails and letters. Some Electors received thousands of phone calls while others got death threats and had to be escorted by police to cast their vote. Not one Democrat stood up and demanded the threats stop. In the end, Trump lost two Electors, while Clinton lost five.

The Democrats’ support base is concentrated in the northeast and west coast. They all but ignore the interior of the country, also referred to as “flyover country,” until it’s time to run for president, and then they only pay it lip service. Their political agenda is often at odds with this part of the country, and when citizens voice their opposition, Democrats resort to insults. A person is either “racist, sexist, homophobic or any number of derogatory terms for daring to disagree with them. And they wonder why they can’t seem to win in the heartland.

Democrats want to abolish the Electoral College because the population of the northeast and west coast is all they would need to have complete control over rest of the U.S.. The Electoral maps over the last four decades show the near monopoly the left has had in the northeast and on the west coast. This years map is no different. Hillary Clinton won the northeast and west coast, while Donald Trump won the rest of the country.

The founding fathers added the Electoral College to ensure that smaller states had a say in who ran the country. If not, two-thirds of the U.S. would be governed according to the political whims of a fraction of the states. Democrats are well aware that if they could eliminate the Electoral College, they could rule the country with an iron fist, and there wouldn’t be anything we could do about it.
