Again, I didn’t watch it all. But what I’m thinking of is the moment when all the Dem wannabes raised their hands to guarantee healthcare for illegals. Ten politically prominent members of one of the established parties of our two-party system. And in the midst of a huge and catastrophic onslaught on the border, not only by Central Americans but by anybody from the entire third world who can get an airline ticket to Mexico or Guatemala City. ( and oh yeah: their families, too, once they get in here.)
Yeah, go ahead and laugh. That’s the end of the race! ,tweeted Trump, and the NY Post featured that all-hands-raised photo with the caption, “Who Wants to lose the election?”
But see, the Dems entire strategy is to WinThe Popular Vote. They did it last time, by winning California, where they’re practically begging illegals to vote. And it will happen again—who doubts it? They’ve got a winner here: “Don’t we want everybody’s vote to count?”
But this time, we have 14 states and counting who have pledged to give all electoral votes to whomever California and New York vote for.
It’s over. Our president will no longer be elected by citizens, no longer will there be a “United States”.
Article 2 of the Constitution won’t help us, IMHO. Have you ever tried to read it? It doesn’t expressly prohibit what we saw in 2016, a campaign to get electors to vote for someone their state didn’t elect, and I suppose, given the fact that there have been no legal challenges to this compact, that it doesnt expressly prohibit a state from determining that its electors will vote for whoever carried California. I think there are two states at present who award their electoral votes in proportion to the percentages of the vote which each candidate garnered.
I hope I’m wrong about this; can’t say they ever covered the electoral college in my Constitutional Law course. But I have the impression that we’re talking about a long-established custom/policy when we talk about the way electoral votes have traditionally been distributed. The Constitution says we must have the electoral college, but leaves a lot of the details up to the states.
I’m not sure how this would be handled on the ballot. It’s my understanding that when we pull the lever for Trump, we are actually voting for those electors who have pledged to vote for him.
Would states need to elect electors at all, if all its electoral votes are going to be automatically awarded to the winner of the most populous states?
We are teetering on the brink of tyranny by the majority, and a polyglot, non-citizen majority at that.
