The Anti-Trump Riots are a Smoke Screen The Real Goal – Eliminate the Electoral College

American Policy: Many seem bewildered by the anti-Trump riots and demonstrations that have covered the nation since the 2016 election. And many keep trying to find a reasonable response. Give it up. You can’t reason with them with words.

Here is my take. They know full well that they aren’t going to overturn the election. These privately funded forces are being used to create pressure to destroy the Electoral College so they won’t have to deal with it next election. This is how the Left operates. Make a big deal over here to force the hidden agenda over there. The plan is to make enough trouble that Congress will move to abolish the EC to get some peace.

For clues on who is behind this effort one only has to watch to see which member of Congress would propose such action. The answer, of course, was California Senator Barbara Boxer. It only took a week after the election for her to come to the rescue of the broken and distraught Left.  more

  1. This is Communist tactic and should be exposed truthfully as such. To keep saying Left or Liberal is intended to make people think all parties are actually working within a legal Constitutional government system. The eliminating of Constitutional Law has been progressing consistently for years, much of it being done within Congress by long-term members who have been maneuvered into their political positions by the same election rigging as is happening now. A Communist coup doesn’t have to happen fast, but it can happen. Nikita Khrushchev was no dummy when he prophesied it for America. The young are being radically deceived, but first it was their parents. Americans should be more than worried.

  2. When someone says “the popular vote” look out for this tactic.

    Our geographical votes are better representation than the tyranny of a vote total that is built on other areas telling another area what’s good for it. The electoral college was a founding father’s centerpeace of rebellion from interference by absent masters.

    It’s the only thing separating me from Nancy Pelosi and other demoncrats.

  3. Congress can’t do it. The Electrical Collage is Constitutional. What the left really wants is to abolish the Constitution. That requires extra-constitutional actions, not legislation.

  4. Again, it’s all about the TOTAL CONTROL of POWER. They couldn’t care less about the Electoral College, only insofar as it is an impediment to that end.

    The Founders knew what they DIDN’T want, as much as they valued freedom.

  5. What they really want is a fully functioning Uniparty which makes appointments rather than holding elections. Sure, they will give us some meaningless ballot-punching process to pick some people for ceremonial offices with no real power, but the offices that matter will be back-room decisions.

    The federal bureaucracy is effectively Uniparty already. It’s time to bring the elected portion of government into Uniparty compliance. Like several commenters said, the Electoral College is pretty much set in stone. But if the EC was merely rubber-stamping shades of blue, it wouldn’t need to be gone.

  6. No matter how you slice it, violence is inevitable. According to alinsky tactics, the first people that should be attacked and executed is the homo mafia in the NY-DC media complex. Slaughter the faces of the lie machine immediately. Then slaughter the small number of antifa/blm/cpusa/dsa pukes and make an example of them. Then you reach the point of actual governmental agents and use of force versus other governmental agents and citizens etc…. but that is where it has to get to in order to resolve this mess.

  7. I’m convinced that the primary goal of the framers of the Constitution was to throw sand in the gears of the government. The first attempt, Articles of Confederation, was too weak to prevent warfare between the states, so they decided they needed something a little stronger, but not too strong.

    Think about it. Three relatively equal branches of government to act as checks and balances on each other. Two senators from each state elected every six years while the representatives reflect the population and stand for election every two years. Advice and consent for Presidential appointments. A judiciary that is not elected and theoretically outside of the realm of politics. The Electoral College. And so on. It’s cumbersome.

    The left is pissed that it’s so difficult to enact their total government control policies, yet this is exactly what the Constitution framers wanted. They didn’t trust those in charge of government. But they didn’t trust those who choose those in charge of government either. It’s a beautiful system; keep it.

  8. Yes, Wyatt, the 16th Amendment enslaved us and the 17th destroyed that “Balance.”
    The States are no longer represented.
    Elimination of the Electoral College provides the nihilistic totalitarians with a powerful tool for electoral mischief – fraud would be normalized. The corruptive abuses obvious in Florida, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Minnesota, California, and New York would infect every District in America – there would never again be another “free” or “fair” election.

    Our “Judiciary” has ruled on the basis of “shadows and penumbras” for 30 years or so – thus – the “Defenders” of the Constitution are the more obvious Betrayers. Those who bray the loudest about “law” and “right” are the first (and most egregious) to transgress.

    There’ll be a reckoning. Impossible to say who will reckon what. “Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold.”

  9. The electoral college keeps smaller states from being run over by more populated states. Any repeal would give the northeast seaboard and the west coast total control of the government. That blatantly unconstitutional action would bring about mass secessions of middle america or a revolution. Is that what liberals want?

  10. So let me get this straight. The majority of the people, who reside in a handful of states like CA, NY, NJ, are somehow going to get 3/4 of the states, almost all of which benefit from the current situation, to willingly reduce their impact? Um, good luck with that.

  11. Might as well eliminate elections altogether. Just have a lottery system like jury duty. You get picked, and you have to serve. One term only for all offices.
    If we’re going to roll the dice, roll ’em completely.

  12. @Tim: the founders gave us a Republic, if we can keep it. (I believe Benjamin Franklin expressed this). Yes, various groups have been trying to undercut the Constitution for decades, but the framework is still in place and the pendulum always swings.

    Incidentally, Constitutional protections go both ways; what if hard right wingers gain control of a powerful central government? Right now, leftists are frustrated, but they should be careful what they wish for because the future is always uncertain.

  13. @LCDan: it could happen – lots of the little states are run by liberals and as we all know, liberalism is a mental disorder.
