DEMOCRATS SEEK TO BYPASS CONSTITUTION AND ELECTORAL COLLEGE TO ILLEGALLY WIN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS
To some Americans the Electoral College is confusing, The purpose by the Framers of the Constitution for the Electoral College was to prevent the more populace states from solely electing a President and give smaller populated states a voice in the Presidential election. For instance if the Electoral College did not exist populace states such as California, New York, Ohio and Texas among others would have the ability by shear numbers only of electing the President every four years WITHOUT the inclusion of smaller populated states like Wyoming and Montana to name a few.
The Electoral College Constitutionally allows every state to have a voice in the election. The candidate that wins the popular vote in any particular state receives the electors from that state whose numbers match the Congressional Districts of the state. Only Nebraska and Maine split electors according to percentages of vote for Presidential candidates in their state.
Now a group of left wingers are attempting to eliminate the balance the Electoral College brings to the Presidential race. Massachusetts is currently debating legislation to join five other states in awarding all their state electors to the Presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote and not just the popular vote in their particular state. Several other states are considering this unconstitutional move to in essence eliminate the Electoral College and usurp the Constitution before the 2012 election.
Currently it takes 270 electoral votes to win the Presidential election. With the move to eliminate the current Constitutional electoral system, a Presidential candidate could campaign ONLY in the 11 most populace sates in the Union and win the popular vote in those states winning the election. A move which would eliminate the other 39 states from having ANY voice in the election of the President.
The left see an opportunity in this unconstitutional move to use Democrat popularity in more liberal and populace states like New York and California as a means of eliminating any candidate other than a Democrat from ever winning a Presidential election again. Our Founders understood that as the country grew and the population of the country even as it did in the 1700's centered around larger cities, that more rural areas and states would have no voice in Presidential elections. Thus the Electoral College and balancing the vote so the same larger population areas would not be the ONLY citizens who elect a President.
This move sees the trend of the popularity of Barack Obama sliding more each day and as a result the very distinct possibility that he cannot be re-elected in 2012. So rather than following the Constitutional standard which has worked successfully since the election of George Washington, the left seeks to illegally usurp the Constitution by changing state election rules in liberal states in order to win future elections by stealing the voice of the people.
