Dems Plotting against

the Electoral College

Bill Neinast

The attempt several weeks ago to raise a reward fund for finding brain cells in our nation’s capitol was an utter failure.  So let’s try another tack.

How about sending a box of facial tissues like Kleenex to every Democrat in Washington, D.C., and on the National Democrat Party list?  The six year old members of losing baseball games do not cry and moan, “We was robbed,” longer than the Democrats have cried after Hillary Clinton lost the White House to Donald Trump.

Just like the losing six year olds, they are crying, “The election was stolen from us by the antiquated Constitution.”

They want to prevent future thefts like that by eliminating the Electoral College that elects the President by a majority vote of its members without regard to the national vote.

Section 1 of Article II of the Constitution establishes the Electoral College in its 3rd Clause.  It is an another example of the brilliance and foresight of our Founding Fathers.

It was designed to prevent heavily populated states from  dominating the more sparsely populated areas of the country.  Their wisdom is proven by the following item making the rounds on the internet.  I have not verified the statistics, but it illustrates beautifully the effects of electing Presidents through the Electoral College.


“There are 3,141 counties in the United States.  Trump won 3,084 of them; Clinton won 57.

“There are 62 counties in New York State. Trump won 46 of them; Clinton won 16.

“Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.

“In the five counties that encompass NYC  (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond and Queens), Clinton received well over two million more votes than Trump.

“Clinton only won four of these counties; Trump won Richmond.

“Therefore, these five counties alone more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.

“These five counties comprise 319 square miles. The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.

“When you have a country that encompasses almost four million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.

“Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.) do not and should not speak for the rest of our country.  And it's been verified and documented that those aforementioned 319 square miles are where the majority of our nation's problems foment.”

This illustrates why the sore losers may want to change the rules, and here is a heads up that the move is already well under way.  

The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC) is an agreement among a group of U.S. states and the District of Columbia to award all their electoral votes to whichever Presidential candidate wins the overall popular vote in the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Ten states are already members of the compact and 11 more have it under consideration.  There should be no surprise that California and a cluster of states around New York on the East Coast are among the ten states already signed on.

So here’s the perspective.

Democrats are not going to quit wailing and crying until our President no longer occupies the White House.  Can you imagine what it will be like if Donald Trump wins reelection?

If you think that is not possible, remember the common belief four years ago that no one could beat the invincible Hillary Clinton. 

There has to be a counter movement to the NPVIC to preserve the Constitution.

So get those Kleenex on the way to the Democrats.  Maybe they can wipe their crying eyes and see where they are heading.

But don’t get your hopes too high.
