For democracy to work we depend on the one man one vote principal. There is absolutely no point in me voting in a presidential election because in effect I don’t have a vote. Trump got 67.8% and Hillary got 26.5% in WV in the 2016 election. I already knew that in the most ignorant state union would vote overwhelmingly for Trump before the election. There was no reason to vote, the corrupt system called the electoral was set up to assuage slave owners. This works against the Republicans in states like New York and California. California went to Hillary Clinton 61.5% to 33.2% for Trump. New York went to Clinton 58.8% while Trump got only 37.5%. Experts wonder why so many people don’t bother to vote, this is why they know in advance their vote will not be counted in the actual contest. Only when America actually makes it one man one vote will we have corrected the corruption of the past.
Having a system where only the leading teams score counted would be similar to the electoral college.
The electoral college is a ghost of the distance past and should be struck down by the supreme court because it clearly violates the one man one vote principal. It serves to suppress the vote and convince the American people that the system is corrupt. If an election were held in most countries and the loser was installed as president there would be a revolution to remove him.
The idea was that blacks in the south would not count as real people and the South was rural and not as populated as big northern cities. Whether blacks were counted as a ½ person or 3/5 a person it underscores a system based in corruption.
Hillary didn’t commit any crime that Trump isn’t committing 10 times every day. A very extensive history of FBI files was run and everyone that had been charged with that violation and Hillary was treated exactly as the others were treated for the same violation. The only thing that was different is they did not receive the extensive publicity that Hillary did. Other federal employees that committed the same violation were never charged either.
That was exactly how it went down in the 2016 election and that it is exactly how it will go down in 2020 Trump and the Russian verses the American people. There is another more common word for “spying” it called investigating and every citizen is subject to being investigated and Trump is no exception. When Trump publicly told the Russian, they would be richly rewarded if they would find and publish Hillary’s missing 30,000 emails that is collusion.
You know what they say about bearer of bad news, Trump fired his pollsters today because the news was far worse than he wanted to hear. The problem it seems was that Trump pollsters leaked the bad poll numbers to press. Trump had instructed his pollsters to lie. Trump hates the truth in any form and anybody that tells the truth.
