In case you missed it, there are now 15 states that have voted for bills that would grant their state’s Electors to the winner of the popular vote. This is dangerous on so many levels and it would actually end the nation as we know it.
As I have said many times, we are not a country. I know that comes as a shock to many folks out there. But on a governmental and technical level, we are actually a UNION of 50 States. In government terms, a State is another word for Country.
The United States of America is much like the European Union. Those European nations are part of the Union but the Union is not a country. Same goes for the USA. Each state is actually its own country that is part of the Union as a whole.
Thus, the Electoral College was a way to keep the election of the President of the Union as fair to all as possible. So that even the smallest of states has an equal representation when it comes to deciding who the leader of the Union will be.
What Nevada and 14 other states have done, all run by Democrats and none voted on by the public, is tell their citizens that they don’t care if you vote for Trump, your Electors are going for Hillary.
The issue is, the popular vote can easily be won by Democrats simply by focusing on 4 of the 5 or 6 most populous states. And that is how Hillary was able to garner a few more popular votes than Trump. Hillary won CA, NY, NJ and that was enough to give her the popular vote edge.
But they are just 3 of 50 States. The majority of States voted for Trump. Democrats want to eliminate that. And if they ever do so, it will be the end of the United States.
