Never Give Up our Electoral College


by JB Williams, ©2010

The Electoral College was established by the Framers to equalize the votes of highly-populated states against rural states with lower populations

(Jul. 29, 2010) — America’s Founding Fathers did NOT form a “democracy.” They formed a “representative republic” and guaranteed every state a “republican form of government” in the US Constitution. Contrary to modern propaganda, a democracy and a representative republic are NOT the same thing.

With an Electoral College, we have a “representative republic.” Without it, we will have a pure “democracy,” which Thomas Jefferson defined as – “nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.”

Those who wish to fully understand and appreciate the historical purposes behind our Founders’ Electoral College design should take some time to study the related facts here. The Founders had VERY strong reasons for everything they put in place to protect and preserve freedom and liberty. The people trying to destroy it all have their reasons too…

In this morning’s edition of the left-wing publication Salem News – former governor and presidential candidate Michael Dukakis states – “National Popular Vote makes sense – I think it’s high time we got rid of the Electoral College and elected our presidents the way we elect every other elected official in the country — by a vote of the people. The overwhelming majority of the American people think so, too.”

The Massachusetts legislature is trying to enact a bill at the state level to eliminate the Electoral College, and other left-leaning states have similar initiatives. The illicit Obama administration and the Democratic Socialists of America currently in control of the US Congress would love to eliminate the Electoral College system…

Here’s why…

Do you know how many states would control the nation if there were no Electoral College?

Do you know which states would control the entire nation without an Electoral College?

I answer these two questions in this grid…

StatePopulation% of USSlant
New York19,541,4536.31%LEFT
North Carolina9,380,8843.08%MOD

And there it is… In a pure democracy run strictly by popular vote, ten (10) states would control the entire nation, leaving forty (40) of the fifty (50) states without any national representation at all.

While solidly BLUE (left) states are few and far between in America, they happen to be the states with the vast majority of population. The Electoral College exists to give all fifty states equal status and power, whether large or small, left or right. This is a “representative republican” form of government, as opposed to a “democracy.”

To no surprise, it is today’s Democratic Socialists (aka democrats) who press for the end of the Electoral College, ending the Founders’ Republic and installing a pure democracy, in which fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine. A few libertarians have jumped aboard without thinking it all the way through first…

If you still don’t know who is running today’s Democratic Party, take a few moments to find out here.

However, as the Electoral College system is part of the US Constitution, no local, state or federal law can alter or eliminate the Electoral College system without a Constitutional Amendment. Since forty of the fifty states would never ratify such insanity, leaving control of the nation in the hands of ten left-leaning states, usurpers in state and federal government are attempting to legislate the Founders system out of existence.

This CANNOT be Allowed

Citizens who still believe in the Founders’ republican design for self-governance and desire individual freedom and states’ rights, MUST ACT NOW to stop these measures underway in their states, and block any such effort by the federal government.

The current administration has already trashed Article II – Section I requirements that only a “natural-born citizen” of the United States hold the offices of President and Vice President. Since they have done so unchallenged by the masses, they have “set precedent” that the “natural-born citizen” requirement no longer exists in the Constitution.

Yes, it is still part of the Constitution, but it is no longer an enforced part of the Constitution, just like the enumerated powers. The Constitution is being systematically shredded by way of “precedent.”

Our immigration laws are no longer in force or effect, as they are not enforced. The natural-born requirement is no longer in force or effect, as it is no longer enforced either.

Leftists seek to eliminate the Electoral College and replace our representative republic with a pure democracy by the same methods.

The US Constitution is only as strong as the enforcement of that document and the principles behind it. Without strict enforcement, it is just another historical document of no real consequence.

Already established by precedent, is the following –

  • Anyone born anywhere in the world, with any loyalties to any nations including enemy nations, can hold the office of president without so much as a birth certificate as personal identification.
  • There is no such thing as states’ sovereignty and rights.
  • There are no enumerated powers. The federal government can do anything they want and they are.
  • Federal actions no longer require the “consent of the governed.” Every Obama policy has been opposed by the majority of American citizens.
  • If they do away with the Electoral College – there will be NO reversing any of it, ever!

If the American people don’t wake up, grow some backbone and stand up very soon, they will have no power left to confront anything.

The pot is beginning to boil and most frogs still haven’t taken note or appropriate action.

The drive to do away with the Electoral College is based on the Democratic Socialist lust for unchallenged power, in which their ten leftist states can run roughshod over the entire nation from their anti-American, immoral and unethical population centers.

If the people allow this section of the Constitution to be destroyed, all political solutions will be gone. This is the final death blow to our representative republic. Defend our nation on this front or lose it all.

    I still don’t understand how states could control the nation if states’ votes were to be replaced by the votes of individuals.

    Thanks. But using that argument does not this compact “increase the political powers of those states which adopt it” since those states, solely because of their larger population, effectively will determine the outcome of a presidential election? I’m not an attorney but that sounds to me like an increase in political power.

    I don’t understand how election by popular vote would amount to ten states controlling the nation. Wouldn’t a popular vote amount to counting all votes, regardless of the state in which the ballots were cast? Wouldn’t a vote cast in Rhode Island be equal to a vote cast in Texas?

    Disclaimer: I’m not a supporter of a popular vote or anything else that runs counter to the Constitution.
    Mrs. Rondeau replies: The much more populated states such as New York, California, and Pennsylvania (because of Philadelphia) have so many more “votes” to be counted that they would far outweigh the votes in other states such as Wyoming, where the population is very low but the territory covered is very wide. The Electoral College was established to strike a balance between highly-populated states and those such as North Dakota, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming which have very low populations compared to the square miles they cover.

    Thomas, the short answer to your question is, under the 10th Amendment, Congressional approval of a multi-state compact is not required where such compact has no tendency to increase the political powers of the states or to encroach on the supremacy of the national government. Virginia v. Tennessee, 148 US 503 (1893)

    Can you explain why this NPVI would not be a violation of Section 10 of the Constitution?

    Section 10 – Powers prohibited of States

    No State shall, without the Consent of Congress…”enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State”

    Understand, no one is proposing eliminating Electors. (The Constitution says nothing about an “Electoral College.”) As everyone seems to know, this would take a Constitutional amendment, requiring ratification by 3/4 of the states. No; what the NPVI attempts to accomplish is more sinister, in that it relies on your knowledge eliminating Electors will take a Constitutional amendment; to do an end run around the Constitution. That is, it will keep the Electors but effectively alter their role as conceived by the Founders and Drafters and memorialized in the Constitution. Here’s how. It gets the states who pass that law and join the compact, to agree that when the votes of Electors in the compact reaches 270 then, Electors Appointed in our states will cast their votes for President for the winner of the national popular vote. In other words, under the NPV, Electors will still elect the President but, local Electors will be working on behalf of the citizens of other states! Slick, huh. To paraphrase UCLA Law Professor Lowenstein, ‘This violates both the spirit and the letter of the Constitution.’ Dr. Koza has a great marketing team.

    On July 24, I published on my blog, HOW ADOPTING the “NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE INITIATIVE” CAN STEAL an ELECTION ‘BY HOOK’ and ‘BY CROOK.’ The article spells out the arguments for and against this NPVI, and includes a link to a debate on these issues between UCLA Law Professor Lowenstein (against) and Dr. Koza, father of the NPVI. (FYI, Dr. Koza is a long time D fairy godfather, who pays for this initiative with the fortune he made from ‘inventing’ the lottery scratch ticket.)

    Exactly right – and that’s why the EC was originated. Doing away with it is merely what the Oligarchs/Communists wish (and they are the ones trying to do this – those falling in line with the wish are merely too ignorant to know otherwise).

    Thanks JB for clarifying the importance of the Electoral College… always you hit the nail on the head!
