To: Dont Mention the War

The Electoral College must stand. The reason the Founding Fathers wanted it is still the same reason we need it today. Just take a look at California and see where the dems live and then see where the republicans live. This is fair representation. I only wish the Senators were still elected by each state's legislatures and not the popular vote. The Founding Fathers were amazing and brilliant men. They also knew the what evils lie in the hearts of those who want to be powerful.

Their plan is to 1) allow illegal aliens to vote after registering THAT day
2) allow dead Democrats to vote
3) prevent any military vote, and
4) encourage Democratic voting by individuals, criminals and aliens in multiple states
especially by mail.

and did we forget .... Lawyers.

You nailed it exactly: "The Founding Fathers were amazing and brilliant men. They also knew the what evils lie in the hearts of those who want to be powerful."

They also didn't trust regular white landowners to make the "right" decisions, which is why they allow the electoral voters to switch if the "wrong" candidate is voted for. However, that is quite the rare occurence.

Ditto that. The Constitution was conceived to protect us all. Brilliantly so. Checks and balances assure oversight of the executive and constraint on tyranny of legislative majority. The electoral college is an indispensable part of the system. The Founders were well aware of the weakest link in any system of governance, man.

Amen. We can't allow the Electoral College to fall. If the globalist/Libs get their way, only NY and California need vote. We can't allow them to replace our Republic with mob rule.

Yeah, what he said... exactly right on ALL points IMO.

I don't know whether it is necessary to actually involve the extra layer of electoral college representatives. But I do know without a doubt that US needs the electoral vote process rather than the straight popular vote. The reason was illustrated in Floriduh 2000: protection against localized corruption. If the presidency is just a national popular vote, all a "good" (crooked) Demonrat needs to win a close election is one "good" (crooked) state to serve as a staging area for fraudulent votes. With electoral voting, even if the Daley Democrat gets away with it in their state, they can't take more than that state (which they probably already have in their pocket, anyway).

"The Electoral College must stand."

Yep, otherwise the whole country will be governed by the illegals voting in TX, NY and CA.

I think a better approach to voting is only stakeholders in the country vote. There has to be some way to make the vote mean something for the country, not the gimmee crowd. The notion that everyone should vote is nothing but socialist mob rule using democracy.

Motor voter is an abomination.
