JUST IN: State Voting To ABOLISH The Electoral College- Just One HUGE Problem

Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS – 

The state of Oregon is attempting to alter the Constitution.  On Wednesday, Oregon’s House of Representatives voted to pass legislation (HB 2927) that award the state’s electoral votes to presidential candidates who win the national popular vote.

The Electoral College is embodied in the Constitution in Article 2, Section 1, and in the 12th Amendment.

According to National Popular Vote, Oregon is actually the eleventh state to pass such legislation since President Donald Trump’s epic win over Hillary Clinton’s in the 2016 presidential election – CA, DC, HI, IL, MA, MD, NJ, NY, RI, VT, WA. These states are for all intents and purposes eliminating the voice of their citizens, as well as the legitimacy and relevance of their State’s involvement in the political process.

“The process of the electoral college was established for a specific reason.  Because we have failed, for generations, to teach an accurate application of the Constitution, many people like Oregon Rep. Alissa Keny-Guyer believe that the electoral college is “flawed and outdated.”  Rep. Keny-Guyer told Oregon Live, “The Electoral College does not fit the ‘We The People’ and ‘One person, one vote’ style of government.  Rep. Keny-Guyer and those who believe as she does simply do not understand why the electoral college was established and how that process protects her individual liberty and the sovereignty of her State.  She also doesn’t understand that neither Oregon nor America are democracies, but instead are Constitutional Republics. The incessant push toward being ruled by majority opinion is supposed to be antithetical to the American character, unfortunately the dearth of real education in America has created an equal scarcity of understanding about America’s fundamental principles.”

The entire purpose of the electoral college was established in order to ensure that everyone in the United States was accurately represented as a whole, ensuring a fair voice, so as not to favor the urban portions of the country over the rural portions of America. It ensures certain larger states are not given a larger voice than smaller less populous ones. The office of the President was designed to represent the collective interests of the states,  designed to be the leader of the military upon declaration of war by Congress should that become necessary.

The Constitution delegates no powers to the President that authorizes him to directly affect the lives of the people other than the power to pardon for federal crimes.  However, that is a check and balance for the judiciary system. The President’s job is literally that as an ambassador on behalf of the states, therefore the states MUST choose their representative.

Americans have forgotten that our republic is a collection of independent sovereign States who created D.C. to represent their interests. The national popular vote movement takes Americans even further away from our original Constitutional structure and gives us even LESS of a voice, removing the independence f the states.  It virtually removes the voice of the people within those states. This is essentially mob rule.

Should this legislation be allowed to stand unchallenged once the popular vote is complete across the nation each elector of the State much choose the person elected by popular vote regardless of the collective choice of his fellow State citizens. The popular choice must be submitted, regardless of whether it is the best choice and regardless of whether that candidate best represents the interests and principles of the people of that State. Through popular vote, the individual States would become completely irrelevant in the processes of the federal government.

The president would no longer be required to ensure all States’ interests were represented in matters of foreign affairs.  The president’s only concern, throughout the entire four years of his terms, would be to make sure the select few States, with the greatest voting population, were happy and pleased with the execution of his power.

Future presidents could then ignore all but a few states. All treaties could be focused upon the prosperity and growth of a select few States, at best ignoring the rest, at worst requiring the lesser populated States to enrich the other States via treaties and regulations.  All wars could be conducted in the interest of a few States and all peace could be negotiated to benefit the few over the whole.  Cabinet members and supreme Court justices could be chosen from persons of those few States because there would be no reason to make an equitable search.  Every State that did not hold the majority voting population could be relegated to being a spectator in the entire political process.

Not only will the States be silenced in their political affairs nationally and in foreign negotiations, the national popular vote would ensure that the people themselves would be silenced.  What would be the point in voting if you didn’t live in New York, Texas, California, or Florida, where the majority of the voting population resides?  Every presidential election would be chosen by these few States and these few States would grow and maintain their voting power because the national popular vote system would ensure the enrichment of these States over every other State.  A national popular vote, is, in fact, an oxymoron, as it would only reflect the voice of the majority, denying every person in their State a voice in the presidential election.
