Would Abolishing the Electoral College Incentivize Voter Fraud?
As things stand, if a political party perpetrates voter fraud in a national election... it's a Threshold sort of thing. Most states are winner-take-all states. If cheating does not alter the outcome of the state's election then essentially the slate is wiped clean. Only the electoral votes count towards a candidate's total.
But... in an election decided solely by popular vote... each and every vote counts towards a candidate's total. So even if voter fraud is below the threshold to carry a state... those fraudulent votes still count.
Every little bit hurts.
Now consider that some democrats in California support allowing illegal aliens to vote in local elections. And once registered to vote those non-citizens would never, ever vote in a federal election. Perish the thought. Most certainly not...not unless they get confused or something. (Voter Fraud By Accident there's a new wrinkle for ya.)
Just this week a democrat in Congress called for the decriminalization of illegal immigration.
Just this month alone, one hundred thousand illegal immigrants crossed our Southern border.
Many democrats are also calling for the voting age to be lowered to the age of 16.
Why would they support such an obviously bad idea?
They need numbers. And rather than sway existing voters towards their policies, they need new voters.
Their "stealth agenda" is rather non-ninja, it's kinda pathetically obvious.
There are good reasons why we're not a pure democracy. There are reasons why we choose a representative that is supposedly better informed, better educated and perhaps a bit more intelligent than the average constituent. The Mob Rules is a good song, but a poor form of government.
We are a confederacy of 50 sovereign states, agreed to unite under a constitution (and a cotract to consolidate the debt of the revolutionary war)
That being said it is the states that elect the president not the people. It is not a vote of 350 mil but a vote of 50 states.
In order to dissolve the electorial college you literally wpuld have to dissolve the sovereignty of states.
I understand the current method to undercut the Electoral College; a state votes to change its election law to cast their Electoral Votes for the candidate that wins the overall popular vote in the nation as a whole. I suppose this is legal, but doesn't it effectively disenfranchise the citizens of that state if the results get flipped by the new law? I suppose it will take some of these Blue states having to cast their Electoral votes for Donald Trump in 2020 for the activists to feel their self-inflicted wounds. These voting laws should be illegal because they potentially disenfranchise their citizens and they also remove the effectiveness of political voices in all but the large urban areas. If we think our government doesn't hear us now, just wait.
Yeah, preposterous. You can't pursue policy for the sole purpose of winning elections. Why do they even want to do this? Because they lost the election and with it, power and control. Why do they want to pack the supreme court? Because they lost power and control. The modern Democrat party is the party of expedience. Well, check that--the Republican party isn't really different. This stuff has been going on for quite some time. I'm an independent reluctantly standing with Republicans because the Democrats have fallen off the edge, and I think they're actually MORE corrupt than the right (ignoring the far right/far left, but the far left has moved so far left they're nearly right of the right--in fact, I was joking, but that idea has some merit I'll need to think more about). I think there is nothing Democrats wouldn't do anymore to maintain power and control. Ethics/morals--they're not longer relevant. All that matters is power and control. This is NOT good for our country. I still consider myself 'in the middle', but the middle moved. Dramatically. The Democrats just left me standing there. Anyway, Democrats are simply a very bad idea right now, and I don't know if sanity will ever return--short of Kuhn's catastrophic event...Done babbling.
The game is to flood the zones with illegals, flip Texas. Do away with the electoral college and mint a dozen progressive Presidents. Illegals are voting...as dead people and in conjunction with the false I'd and social security cartel businesses....
Democrats want to ban electoral college and they want the majority to decide who is going to be president. They'll be pleasantly surprised to find out that if electoral college is gone, abortion, gay marriage and other topics may swing the other way. More than 51% of population are pro-life, so i guess popular vote would ban abortion. That is just an example.
