Ditching the Electoral College is Popular Among Dems…Here’s Why

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE ORIGINAL FULL STORY


electoral college

Of all of the issues that we expected to see arise during the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, one may easily carry with it the most weight.

That idea is the abolishment of the electoral college; the system of voting that our nation has utilized since 1804.  Sure, the process can be a bit tedious and tumultuous at times, but, as the President himself explained, there is a very real purpose for this convolution.

The Commander in Chief makes a great point here, and it’s one that the people of Northern California and Upstate New York can attest to well.

You see, in those states, the popular vote is used for a number of ballot initiatives and general public decision making.  In both of those states, the liberal population hubs of The Big Apple and the beaches of Southern California completely overwhelms the rest of the state’s far more rural and conservative population.  This means that, proportionally, a tiny fraction of the state is lording over the greater mass of the state on all matters.

To some, it sounds a bit like a King in his castle, looking out amongst the vast expanses of farmland in serfdom.

For others, the issue is not just the idea of taking away a well-established, tuned, and tested system for voting, but rather the appearance that this move, combined with other liberal pipe dreams, is all due to their poor sportsmanship at the end of the 2016 contest.

President Trump had a tweet for that, too.

It’s understandable why the states of california & new york want to take away state rights from the “fly over states” but why would any of the fly over states want to go along with that agenda? Once they do away with the electoral college only a few heavely populated states will then decide presidential elections and you in the middle will cease to matter.
