For about 50 of my 68 years I was all for eliminating the electoral college. Racial and cultural dynamics have changed my mind. Gone are the days when voters voted for what they deemed "right". The massive 43% riding the government gravy train have proven they'll vote for anyone, regardless of character and ethics, as long as the federal gravy keeps flowing.
The problem is compounded by the "plantation loyalists", the Blacks who always offer 90% of their votes as long as there's a (D) behind the name. And California Hispanics, trying mightily, and succeeding into turning California into Mexico North, also give their votes to demagogic liberals who whore for votes wherever they can get them. Same with the polyglot of New York City and the other large burgs about the country.
And usually the "Dims" can cobble enough votes together to stay in office, that likelihood more so every year as the gravy boat gets ever larger. Those "Dims" can always count on Chicago and Baltimore and Los Angeles and San Francisco, and Atlanta, and Philadelphia, as well as the states of New York, California, Oregon, Washington, and Illinois right out of the starting gate, causing it to be more and more difficult for a Republican to win the electoral vote. This year was just a fluke...Trump got the blue collar, the tax-paying working stiff, and, yes, even the far right wing nuts, to go out to the polls in hopes of stopping Obama's huge Obamacare premium increases and quell the fiction of full employment. 93 million Americans out of the job force seemed to have plenty of time to go to the polls this year.
So, I'm glad the Electoral College saved us this year. Saved us from more Muslim immigration and Mexican invasion, with all the associated ills that come with that. However, were I elected "King", I'd go much further...I would work to take the vote from every swinging dick that ain't paying taxes. People who have no stake in curbing these massive federal outlays shouldn't determine who gets elected. And, frankly, after seeing how women fell down and spread their legs for Hillary, just because she owns a vagina, has made me wonder if we shouldn't have been more selective in giving the women the right to vote either....at least the ones on the public dole for life. And, surely if Blacks can't discriminate between ethical and non, if they can still opt to elect folks like Charlie Rangel and Sheila Jackson, and Barack Obama, with his 40% Black unemployment rate, maybe, while we're amending the 14th Amendment to ban anchor babies, maybe we ought to go back and give the Blacks 3/5ths of a vote...cause they sure aren't helping America with who they're voting for now.
Sound extreme? So's a $20 trillion dollar national debt. So's wage suppression caused by 30 million illegal immigrants, and so's the growing aversion to working and paying taxes these days.
It's all sad. Damned sad. But I'm glad the Electoral College saved us for once. And I'm extremely happy to hear the Democrats whining about it.
