Nobody's Perfect: Massachusetts
I expect too much.
Sadly, the populous of our good country is so stupid as to not know that getting rid of the electoral college means a quick road to tyranny...and that's exactly what some states are doing...including Massachusetts. (Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey?, and Washington, have already passed the National Vote act.)
You see, here's how it works: if all the voters of Massachusetts vote for, let's say, a Republican candidate, then the 12 electors would not have to support the people's vote for that Republican, but instead throw their votes to what the majority of America votes...which would mean...California would pick the next President of the United States forever more.
Hasta la Vista Untied States...Ba..by.
Insanity? Yes. The whole purpose of the electoral college was so that a smaller state without the population of the bigger states would actually have a say in things, and be represented equally in the halls of Congress.
Their votes would count.
But for years now our Presidents have been pushing the word...democracy, instead of Republic...for a good reason too. They know that the rule by majority always leads to dictatorship.
That's why the founders tried to develop a fairer more equal system with the electoral college.
Too bad that very important fact is NOT taught in any of our schools.
On the other hand, with elections now being decided by who can raise the most money, we are not a Republic anymore anyway. We all know it was George Soros, and Saudi Kings, who funded Obama's run for the Presidency.
The fact that our politicians spend millions of their own money to even run, tells you...we are NOT even close to a republic anymore at all. But...to get rid of the electoral college?
This "majority rules crap" should not even be allowed. But, the people in power, want to stay there, so they are going in through the back doors, by getting each state to pass what they now call "The National Vote."
ARE WE NUTS? And this happening in Massachusetts, the heart and soul of the start of the Republic.
America is cutting her own head off, and putting it in the sand. I say, we give the state back to Canada.
