Oh, please, let this happen in 2020…so much fun…
She will need to get some orthopedic treatment, and maybe cut down on the booze. Her she is today in India:
I’m thinking that she needs a refresher in Civics and how the Constitution works. BTW, she can’t even resolve her own problems, not those of her husbands and she certainly wouldn’t be able or even enclined to resolve the issues of this great nation.
So here is a refresher for U Hildabeast and all UR remaining supporters, however growing fewer by the day:
THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE
The below brief “civics essay” has been circulating recently. If you haven’t seen it before, or if you wish to refresh your memory, and regardless of your opinion of the current president’s “style,” here’s a chance…
In their infinite wisdom, the United States founding fathers created the Electoral College to ensure that all STATES are fairly represented. They did not want one or two densely populated areas to speak for and control the destiny of the entire nation.
Here are some facts that help illustrate why the Electoral College makes sense:
· There are 3,142 counties in the United States.
o Trump won a popular majority in 3,084 counties.
o Clinton won in 57.
· There are 62 counties in New York State
o Trump won in 46.
o Clinton won in 16.
Clinton won the national popular vote by approximately 1.5 million. In the five counties that comprise New York City, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens, Clinton received over 2 million more votes than Trump. Clinton won 4 of the 5 counties. Trump won Richmond.
· Those 5 counties alone more than accounted for Clinton winning the national popular vote of the entire nation.
· Those 5 NY counties comprise 319 square miles.
· The United States area is 3,797,000 square miles.
In a nation that encompasses nearly 4 million square miles, it would seem ludicrous (with all due respect to our friends in those 57 Clinton counties nationwide) to suggest that the vote of those who inhabit 319 square miles should determine the outcome of a national election.
I wish states had an electoral college system for counties. I don’t think the large cities should make policy for the entire state, anymore than just a few states should not make policy for the whole country.
