A Really Bad Idea
Manny is in the Kitchen
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Saturday, April 20, 2019. Our pious friend, Mantis Manny, is at the stove preparing a Three Cheese Quiche for our enjoyment. I am beside Manny mixing up a batch of spicy Bloody Marys to add to the fun. Manny wishes to discuss another ill-conceived proposal being touted by the Dems. They want to abolish the Electoral College. If only we could abolish the Dems! In any event, Manny has asked for the pleasure of your company at the breakfast table. He wants to discuss the Dems push for a constitutional amendment. How they plan to amend a document they don't understand boggles the imagination. Please hurry over. The quiche is piping hot and the Bloodies are chilled. We hope to see you soon.
A Change for the Worse
Thanks so much for joining Pop and me this morning. The Dems, in particular, those that want to be president are proposing that we do away with the Electoral College. Some of them think the Electoral College is an institution of higher learning. That shouldn't surprise any of us. They are anxious to decide the leader of our country based only upon the popular vote. Our Founding Fathers are turning over in their graves at the mere thought of such a move. When Donald Trump won the election, the idea of getting rid of the Electoral College took root. Clinton won the popular vote which is amusing considering how unpopular she was and still is. The Dems have concocted this scheme to negate the votes of rural America. The large states like California and New York would end up running the show. The mere thought of that is enough to ruin my appetite. No wonder the woman in the photo below has a headache!
Still Crazy After all These Years
The Democratic party and their band of uninformed devotees are still bemoaning the outcome of the 2016 election. If not for the Electoral College their girl Hillary would be sitting in the Oval Office today. Bill would be First Man chasing interns, and Hillary would be screaming at Secret Service agents threatening them with bodily harm. Republican and Democrat voters would be selling apples and pencils on the street corners. Thanks to President Trump our economy is booming and life is good. In fact, President Trump is doing a fine job of leading our nation. His accomplishments mean nothing to the Dems. Those in power don't care about lower taxes and low unemployment. They are never affected by anything going on in this nation. They don't care about anything other than staying in power. The voters who still believe in them are clueless. If their taxes went down, they probably think it's because Obama supplemented their incomes out of his own pocket.
If Democrats were the least bit interested in making our elections fairer, they wouldn't be proposing this move. If they were interested in making elections fairer they never would propose lowering the voting age to 16. If Democrats were interested in making our elections fairer, they never would propose allowing illegal immigrants to vote. If Democrats were concerned about fair elections they would all be behind requiring voter I.D. Alas, Dems are a breed of their own. They are interested in their own longevity. People sleeping in makeshift tents on the streets of once beautiful cities don't concern them. They are universally blind to real problems and have utter contempt for the truth.
A Political Game
Calling for the end to the Electoral College is a political game. Candidates like Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren view the Electoral College as a means for preserving "slavery". Abolishing the Electoral College would ensure that some states would have no voice in the election process. On the table is the establishment of The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. It would require participating states to give their presidential electors to the winner of the popular vote, even if a different candidate won in their state. Sadly, twelve states have already agreed to sign on to this idea. The National Popular Vote proposal would go into effect when 270 electors are committed to its principles. The idea is absurd. States would be forced to award their electoral votes to a candidate they didn't vote for.
The effort to establish this compact is a prelude to the total and official elimination of the Electoral College. The Electoral College has been in existence for 215 years. It was designed to ensure that candidates payed attention to small and rural states in our nation. The Founding Fathers, in their wisdom, did not want larger states to decide who wins.
The Dems push for change is entirely political and selfish. They are still bemoaning Clinton's loss. Their loss does not have to be the loss of the Electoral College and the principles on which it was established. None of the other proposed changes to voting should be entertained either. The Electoral College was established for a good reason. The voting age as it stands was established for a good reason. Not requiring voter ID is insane. Allowing illegals to vote is equally crazy. The Dems are sore losers, and that's putting it mildly. Their eagerness to stay in power forever is polluting the nation. It's time they cleaned up their act.
The moment I wake up
Before I stretch my wings
I say a little prayer for America
Let common sense ring free.....
