(Tea Party PAC) – If you ever wondered how our republic would finally bite the big one, whether it would be from a nuclear holocaust or an invading army, or a pandemic of some sort of awful disease, well, it looks like you’re finally going to have your answer. It’s none of the above.
The destruction of our great nation is being put on full display in the state of Virginia, as the House of Delegates has officially voted to pass legislation that would hand all of the Electoral College votes to whoever wins the popular vote.
Here’s more on this from Breitbart:
House Bill 177 passed with a 51-46 vote in the Democrat-majority House after being handed off by the Privileges and Elections Committee last week. Should the Senate also approve, Virginia will officially become part of the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
“Under the compact, Virginia agrees to award its electoral votes to the presidential ticket that receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia,” a bill summary states. Further:
The compact goes into effect when states cumulatively possessing a majority of the electoral votes have joined the compact. A state may withdraw from the compact; however, a withdrawal occurring within six months of the end of a President’s term shall not become effective until a President or Vice President has qualified to serve the next term.
So far, 15 states, along with Washington D.C., have joined. The idea gained momentum as an answer to President Donald Trump’s electoral college victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016, despite her approximately three million popular vote lead.
The thing that liberals don’t seem to understand — or maybe they do understand and simply don’t care — is that if you get rid of the Electoral College, then all major urban cities are going to always control the direction of our entire nation, leaving folks in flyover states without a voice or representation when it comes to the White House.
The whole purpose of the Electoral College is to ensure that every American has a voice in the election and can choose the leaders who run the country on their behalf. Without this, liberals will basically be able to control the entire nation for all-time. This will be disastrous for our country and will be the end of the republic and the birth of a socialistic democracy.
Joel Pollack, editor-at-large of Breitbart News gave a great explanation for why so many critics believe the popular vote could disenfranchise voters who don’t live in major population centers like New York and Los Angeles:
Under a national popular vote system, it would be possible for Nevada — or one of the other swing states — to vote for the candidate who lost the national popular vote, only to see its Electoral College votes awarded to the winner of the national popular vote. In a close election, that could elect a president — against the will of Nevada voters — who otherwise would have lost the election under the present system.
Moreover, the “national popular vote” would, critics say, reward candidates for concentrating their time and resources on the most densely populated parts of the country. It would also create an incentive for fraud in the jurisdictions most susceptible to it. California, with its new system of “ballot harvesting,” in which unregistered activists may deliver an unlimited number of mail-in ballots, would be a prime candidate, as rival campaigns competed to stuff ballot boxes.
The Founding Fathers, in their infinite wisdom, recognized right off the bat that our nation was going to explode in population, that people the world over would not be able to resist the allure of liberty and would flock to our nation. They were well aware this was going to be a very big country with a tremendous population, thus they wanted to ensure that average, every day Americans would have a voice in who ran the country.
Thus, the Electoral College was created. If we destroy it now, we obliterate everything they sacrificed so much to create. It’s a spit in the face for all those who bled and died to preserve our liberty over the years. It’s just not right.
