“What am I missing?”
The elites don’t believe the people should have any say in anything, so they’d prefer that the voice of the people not be heard, and the people speak through their represenatives in the House.
The idea that the people would rebuke the president is abhorrent to them!
The rats need to learn that even though they can fake an electoral win, it doesn’t mean they have a mandate. The people who realized Obama was bad news are still more than those who wanted him in office. Flipping votes in a few key democratic districts in critical states doesn’t change that.
The only means for the people to hold the power of election fraud in check is if the representatives we really DID elect actually represent the will of the constituents. It’s an important check because though it’s easy to steal a Presidential election, it would be harder to steal all the Congressional elections. They can do a few, like with Al Franken and Lisa Murkowski, but again, if the elected officials truly represent their constituents - or at least have a healthy fear of their constituents - the worst effects can be mitigated.
