Mobbing the National Vote
NOBODY Wins with a National Vote
NOTE: A few days ago, I wrote a short blog on the state wide hurry to pass the National Vote...I got some comments and promised to answer my stand against it..so ONWARD!
"A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” ...Thomas Jefferson
"Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government) those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny” ...Thomas Jefferson
"Only the mob and the elite can be attracted by the momentum of totalitarianism itself. The masses have to be won by propaganda." Hannah Arendt
"It the executive power, or any considerable part of it, is left in the hands either of an aristocratic or a democratic assembly, it will corrupt the legislature as necessarily as rust corrupts iron, or as arsenic poisons the human body; and when the legislature is corrupted, the people are undone. " J.A.
Nobody Wins: The concern we see here is the 'Progressive' determination to take the representation of every single individual, and put it into the hands of mob rule. There is a mass propaganda effort going on here in the United States, to get rid of the electoral college. It's being lead by the democrats, and Bill Clinton, a man who wanted to be King...is using all his efforts to make sure it gets done.
Once again, we have seen that if our politicians don't like the rules and laws of our nation, they just make up a new department, or go through some other such thing, and do what they want. That's how Bill Clinton gave China all our nuclear secrets...he just passed it to them through the Commerce Department. The Health Care Bill, the new financial bill, is LOADED with all kinds of horrible laws, that no one even knows about.
They mean to get rid of the constitution forever. They are...simply, out of control.
Now, first to amforats:
My dear amfortas, likes the monarchy. He claims England made America and we were wicked little children to break away. We did it for greed.
Well, why else do men do what they do? The Kings of England were never greedy?
Did Shakespeare love Sherry Wine?
There are many in England it seems that never quite got over the fact that a bunch of Englishmen in America rebelled against a tyrannical king, and one very rich guy in particular, who, unlike the lazy Kings and fat monarchs of the little Isle of Britain, said to the old King George, "Hell no, you can't have my lands, and you can't tell me how much money to give you, and I'm just as good as you are, in fact better, because I'll actually get my arse on a horse and risk my life as a man for the right to do as I please against a bully, take your lousy tea."
I believe, correct me if I have it wrong, that amfortas suggests that our Mr. Washington should have stayed King and let his sons be Kings forever and then, if that had been the fate taken by History, would the King of America have sent over men to help the Monarchy of England fight off Hitler?
And what have they now? The very weenie-ship of Prince Charles, who has said, that the world is overpopulated and if he were King, he'd get rid of at least a few billion of the likes of amfortas.
He has said it, and he means it.
Does amfortas agree with such a degree from a King? Murder by King right?
It seems to this nobody that amfortas wants to trust to his hereditary wisdom, because he like the sweet Queen, whose own mass fortunes for getting up each day and stuffing herself with cookies and cakes (and for this she gets paid $60 million a year, while her subjects are living in tiny apartments), are satisfied that their rich Queen is "protecting" them while they drive their tiny little cars and their children can look forward to more of the same.
All I can say, out of respect that amfortas, is God save the Queen. And good thing Charles has likable kids.
So, if monarchy is so good, why have so many people risen up against Kings in history? What happens when the King is a tyrant? Are the people suppose to wait just wait until the next benevolent king comes along? Live and die while working for the state and all the rich people's comforts? No Cromwell?
At least we get a try every four years...the English have to wait...a lifetime.
Having said what I think about monarchy...(your chances of getting a good one, is much like playing the lottery) I have never said that our current American system is any better than the Queen. On the contrary. We have a whole slew of greedy queens.
"In all free states, the evil to be avoided is tyranny; that is to say, the summa imperii, or unlimited power, solely in the hands of the one, the few, or the many." John Adams
NATIONAL VOTE VS ELECTORAL COLLEGE
But, the subject is the National Vote. Mob Rule. The system that just seems so darn..."fair" to too many uneducated people in America.
"Liberty cannot be preserved without knowledge among people." JA.
Our founders knew better, and that's why they formed a "representative" republic. Popular "votes" in every government in the history of man always come out in tyranny. If you read "The Political Writings of John Adams" he goes through every single government that had been known to man, and all the democracies...ended up in tyranny.
So...our founders wanted the States to have control, and the electoral college was put in (as an amendment to the Constitution) to give EVERY state, equal say...
(I don't know why I'm talking about it anyway, since here in America, our whole system is rotted out to the very core, elections bought and sold, but in principle, it is a much better system than "popular vote." so...I continue.)
The Congress was to represent the people, not tell the people what to do. Today, money buys all the offices of power. The Congress and the Presidency are sold to the highest bidder, who do pretty much what the elite rich guys want them too.
But, let's think about how that popular vote would work:
At the moment, with the National Popular Vote...we would become Mexico. By 2050, we are being told, that they will be the majority. That's okay? That's fair? Another Mexico is a good thing?
Or say, the Muslim continue to poor into New York, New Jersey, all over the country...they would become the majority, Sharia law would be passed easily, and women could be stoned, and become once again property.
Oh, that sounds like fun.
What if you had a nation of women, and due to popular vote, (there are more women in America than men) the women would decide who would be President. amfortas, wise in his knowledge of how he would trust women to run the world, is fine with that, which makes me wonder just when he was neutered. (I'm KIDDING amfortas!!)
Okay, do you see the madness in this majority rules all?
Just because Al Gore lost the electoral vote in Florida is no reason to think that the system did not work. The system was SET UP THAT WAY. Somebody loses!
It was only the losers who cried "UNFAIR!!"
But this is all fictional. In reality, the republic was lost long ago. Amfortas, is right. The rich rise to the top, and greed creeps in, almost in every case. His reasoning is to just have one smart guy rule the world.
(sigh) Where is that man? No man is perfect, and he doesn't exist. And if he did, someone would probably dig up a sex scandal on him.
Again: Let's say you have one state with a population of nothing but Africans-Americans. But New York has a white guy running who wants all blacks to stop getting all their affirmative action goodies. In a national vote, those blacks in that one state, would have to give all their votes to that popular white guy, who is out to get them, and they would not have any say.
I bet if you put that idea to the black men here, he would not like it. He might then understand that the National Vote is not exactly a good thing.
So, according to my other commentators..., all the states now are going for the popular vote.
Frankly, if Harvard says it's a good idea, then you'd better run. it's a ominous sign of just how far our educational system has fallen.
In the end, when you look at all the political systems on the earth, none of them has ever been able to stop greedy and evil people climbing to the top and smashing down the rest of us. The American system was the best...but, as we see, it has become undone.
In fact, most days, the people running from communism think they never left the country they were running from.
That doesn't mean such a system could NOT be developed. We need good men to get up the courage to get started on it.
The Electoral College may not be perfect: but it sure the hell is better than the National Vote, no matter how prettily they package it.
