The Afternoon Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
By now, most of you have heard that, in her town hall event on the Collaboration News Network (CNN), Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren endorsed the idea of completely eliminating the Electoral College, because of course she did.
“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,” Warren told the audience, “I believe we need a constitutional amendment that protects the right to vote for every American citizen and makes sure that vote gets counted. We need to put some federal muscle behind that, and we need to repeal every one of the voter suppression laws that is out there.”
There’s a lot to unpack there, so let’s start with the second part first: There simply are not any “voter suppression laws” on the books anywhere in the United States of America today, and there haven’t been since sometime in the late 1960s.
What the fake Indian Senator is doing there is the standard Democrat tactic of putting flowery language around eliminating voter ID laws. It’s just a part of the ongoing effort by the Democrat Party to make it as easy as possible for non-citizens and non-living persons, i.e., the “dead”, to vote for Democrats. These people are all about stealing elections via voter fraud, and are willing to do or say literally anything to achieve that goal.
Now, onto this attack on the Electoral College.
There was a time in the not-so-distant past when Democrats were all about protecting the sanctity of this crucial American institution, an institution that has played a vital role in preserving our Republic, and giving it a stability that no other democracy on the face of the earth has enjoyed over the last 230 years. That time was as recently as the 1980s, when Republicans were still competitive all across the Rust Belt and the Northeast, and in big population states like California and New York. Because the GOP ran up massive edges in vote totals all across the Southern states and the Midwest, Democrats would literally freak out anytime anyone even suggested doing away with the Electoral College.
Why? Because the entire purpose of the Electoral College is to ensure that no region of the country or handful of big population states in which one party or the other dominates the vote would be able to force a president on the rest of an unwilling country. Fauxcahontas and her fellow Democrats are bitter about the Electoral College today for the simple reality that, in 2016, this stroke of absolute genius by our nation’s founders worked exactly as it was designed to work.
Were it not for the Electoral College, our nation would today be stuck with President Fainting Felon due to her ability to run up lopsided vote margins in California and New York and a handful of other coastal states. Indeed, California alone accounted for virtually all of the Coughing Crook’s popular vote margin. The will of the states that lie in the vast middle of the North American continent – the 80% of America that coastal liberals like to refer to as “flyover country” – would have found ourselves completely disenfranchised and subject to the whims of a madwoman.
If you live in Flyover Country, that great sea of almost pure red on the map pictured below, you need to understand that the Democrat Party is doing everything it can to ensure your vote in future presidential elections will no longer matter. Because that is exactly what the impact of eliminating the Electoral College would be.
Luckily for all of us, the Electoral College is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, and the only way do away with it would be via a constitutional amendment. So long as Americans who truly do want their presidential votes to count remain educated on the matter and vigilant, getting that done will be virtually impossible.
The Democrat Party now finds itself willingly at war with so many Americans:
- Unborn, and even just-born, children
- Jewish Americans
- Organized Labor
- Older Americans (as discussed in this morning’s Campaign Update)
- White men
- Trump supporters
- Everyone in Flyover Country
Obviously, there is a great deal of intersectionality among those various groups, but taken together, they constitute an overwhelming majority of the voting public. If everyone included in those groups would wake up to the reality of the mendacious nature of today’s Democrat Party, no Democrat could ever be elected to any office outside of San Francisco, Seattle, Austin, Chicago, Washington, DC or Manhattan again.
That is all.
