Conservatives and Tea Party Win White House With Electoral College Reform

Electoral College Reform would have given America a Better Election Day Result For the Nation

Presidents Day is nearing and conservatives will have something to celebrate that day four years from now when the Electoral College is returned to the voters. Currently, there is a movement in motion in several key presidential electoral battle ground states to return constitutional selection of the president to the voters by using congressional district selection of Electoral College electors. This move would even the playing field in presidential campaigns, to be more reflective of the true will of the people of a state, instead of voters being held hostage by the large urban population centers.

Large urban centers typically out vote the majority of congressional district by stealing votes in cities like Detroit, Cleveland, Philadelphia and Chicago. This results in state winner-take all electoral votes swinging unfairly and even illegally to a candidate like Barack Obama. In 2008 and 2012, Obama’s Chicago-style thuggish election machine worked to intimidate, manipulate and otherwise steal a presidential election in dozens of precincts in urban areas with impunity.

This process has created a false narrative that America has chosen a left-leaning socialist agenda that gives permission for citizens to be stripped of their Second Amendment gun rights, or states being forced to stand down against illegal aliens taking their health care, jobs and now their rights.

The solution has been clear for many years, and states like Nevada and Maine have already set the pathway toward a more balanced true representation of a state. They have initiated congressional district selection of presidential electors. In these states citizens can select their presidential candidate of choice, without being held hostage to the will of another congressional district or districts.

Currently, there are several states that have launched efforts to create a more fair and balanced Electoral College initiative. Michigan, Virginia, Ohio and Florida are some that are entertaining the idea. Yet their governors are showing timidity in fully embracing this patriotic concept.

Michigan’s governor, Rick Snyder who is up for re-election in 2014, had previously suggested his consideration for the move for voting fairness. Now, according to TPM, he is backing away.

If Snyder and a few other Republican governors are appearing weak in the knees about restoring electoral power to the state voters, this is probably the best time to know this. It gives the conservatives, the Tea Party and other like-minded voters the opportunity to put them on notice: No support for voter rights – No re-election!

Why is this crucial? Think about how the presidential election would have been turned on its head. Obama would have been shown the White House door, if the will of the people had been truly expressed by each congressional district!

In Virginia, Mitt Romney would have beaten Obama 2 to 1, with Romney picky up 9 electoral votes to Obama’s 4 electoral votes. A similar result would have occurred in Ohio, and other key battle ground states. Obama would have had his lease terminated by the true representative vote of America.

In a Romney administration, there would be discussion about creating jobs and improving the economy and cutting the massive 16 plus trillion national debt. Instead, America is subjected to Obama stripping gun rights, state’s rights and giving illegal aliens citizenship rights!

Conservatives have to stop playing defense against a president and a mainstream media that continues to stack the political deck against them. Stop playing by their rules and begin organizing around the strengths that are part and parcel to Americans.

Americans win every time when the issues which are local to them and important to their life and their family are dealt with and are advocated. First turn off the mainstream media news and turn onto your own social media networks and outlets. Identify those governors that are trying to walk the fence and who refuse to stand up to the reactionary liberals and mainstream media brainwashing.

Your congressional district is your turf. Your state house and senate seats and elected officials represent you, and not CBS, ABC, NBC or any other alphabet soup media outlet. Lastly, and most importantly, Obama has no say in your matters and his interest and his executive edicts have no legitimacy in your local lives.

Tea Party Patriots, can make a difference even larger and with far more impact in 2014 than 2010. This fight to reclaim America is more than just winning a majority in the House of Representatives in Congress! This electoral fight is to win back an election process that will strip the liberal elite and its mainstream media cohorts of the power to steal a presidential election.

For those in Florida, put pressure on the governor’s office and the Speaker of the House Will Weatherford, who is voicing opposition. In Wisconsin, give Governor Scott Walker (R) the support he needs as well as Pennsylvania’s Governor Tom Corbett (R).

On President’s Day let this be a true celebration of the will of the American people. Let the voices of patriotism and be heard by voters who are no longer willing to witness or permit the undoing of the citizen’s constitutional rights.

Send direct messages to all the socialist-minded candidates like Obama who are oiling up their presidential election campaign machinery for 2016 – You’ve been served!

    Would everybody be ok with red states doing this too? This sure would have the illusion of election tampering, would rather see it go to whoever got the most votes nationwide. If some states try this I see it going to the Supreme Court. Is there legal presedence for this?
    I would like to win one of these things too but not like this.

    • raiderlou

      Whoever gets the most votes should win period. 

      • JohnInFlorida

         Then you just don’t understand the difference between a Democracy (which we’re not) and a Republic (which we are).

        The Federal Government was DESIGNED to be a VERY hard place to get things changed. That’s because MOST things were to be handled at the State level and the Fed Govt was to be ineffective and weak BY DESIGN. The founders had a healthy fear of the centralization of power and the harm done to the liberty of the people by such centralization. We are feeling the oppressive weight of that centralization of power and it’s only going to get worse. 

        But what do I know? I’m just one of those bitter clingers!

        • lanahi

          That’s right, we are a Republic, not a nation ruled by the masses as in a democracy.  Theoretically, we should ALL be represented in a Republic, not just the masses.  But neither the popular vote nor the electoral college guarantees that equal representation in today’s world. 

          Maine’s plan comes closer to it.

    • Pricilla Terry

      Obama would have had his lease terminated by the true representative vote of America.

    • Timothy Jacques

       Nebraska (red) and Maine (blue) already do this.  I didn’t hear the Dems screaming when they won an EV in NE in 2008.

    • lanahi

      We had more than just the illusion of election tampering in 2012.  It will happen no matter what system is used, but I think it would be less so if Maine or Nebraska’s plans were used.  It is much harder to take vote fraud all over a state, though probably harder to police…if anyone were even bothering to do that, of course.

    • WEL2

      If the candidate who would get the most votes nationwide would be elected, the candidates would focus their campaigns where the votes are:  big (liberal) population centers.  Large areas of states and whole states would be largely or completely ignored.  The large population areas weild too much power now.  Let’s not give them even more power .

  • raiderlou

    One person, one vote. All votes carry the same weight. I don’t believe in this voting by land mass stuff. Whoever owns the most land in a state does not get more weight to their votes. Just because a large number of people choose to congregate in certain areas of a state doesn’t mean their votes should count any less than the guy who chooses to live on a few acres. Whoever gets the most votes wins. Any other way is just plain cheating and wrong.

    • lanahi

      In a democracy, that is true.  But in a republic, we all should be equally represented and not have our concerns swallowed up by the masses. 

      In our Republic, the needs of a farmer or rancher should be just as important as a stockbroker in the city.  Those in the huge "fly-over" country should have some voice too.  As it is, the politicians just fly over it on the way to someplace else!  That is not equal representation.

  • RedDaveR

       This is a good idea, but it would need to be implemented gradually and with some kind of balance between Red and Blue states.  Currently Maine and Nebraska do this.  Maybe combining states such as MO and WI, or AZ and MN, or something similar, might be a good start. The concept is a good one and would avoid the big-city problem, but we need to make sure that the Red states are being treated fairly.

    • lanahi

      The red states arn’t really treated fairly anyway.  My vote in Idaho should count as much as anyone’s in Ohio, but it isn’t at the presidential election level.  No one cares how Idahoans vote, and they don’t even bother to campaign here.  Of course, no one cares enough to arrange vote fraud here either! 

      It’d be even more discouraging for states like Illinois which, as I understand it, is more conservative beyond Chicago.  Conservatives there don’t feel like their votes count at all.

      I like Maine’s plan.  The concerns of millions of people outside of urban areas could be addressed this way.  It would force politicians who want to be president of all of us to make a point of caring what we think outside of the cities.  I can’t think of a downside to that.

      No, I don’t think we need some kind of balance between Red and Blue states, (who would determine THAT?  What about swing states?  Gees, talk about a real mess!  They’d probably put Idaho in with California!)  and it doesn’t have to be complicated.  If states want to do it, they should, otherwise not.  It didn’t mess anything up by only Maine and Nebraska doing it.  They seem to care that more of their citizens are represented truly, and maybe more of the states will decide the same on their own.  In any case, it’s nice that the states can decide SOMETHING yet.

  • Terrenceor

    You would gain electoral votes in blue states, but loose some in red states. Why not just win with a proper message and messenger? It has been done before.

  • slhancock

    Sounds good, but I’m sure there will be no rush to do this.  The best thing that states can do at present is to clean the voters’s rolls of the dead, those that have moved, and felons.  That would eliminate an enormous amount of fraud..  Then, there should be a registry that can check, when people register to vote, saying they have moved, that automatically removes their name(s) from ANY OTHER STATE’s registry.  You know there are millions of snowbirds.  I know that MANY of them vote in their home states via absentee ballot, then register to vote in their FL or whatever winter state home.  This is fraud. I’ve heard a lot of Floridian’s complain about this and how it affects their own communities when these people vote in leftists to city council and then are not there to pay much of the price of it.  Since this is not just a few people, it surely seems like a national registry would make sense.  Not only that, but once a voter had cast a ballot, a warning could go off if an attempt to vote again.  Unfortunately, that would not solve all issues, as some people showed up to vote, finding that someone else had voted using their name.  This is insane. If we cannot find a way to hold free and fair elections then it is a lot more than over for America.

    I’ll make this very simple. We libs DARE the Repubs to try it! If you "think" you were abused 11/6/12,
    we will introduce you to a whole new Quantum of hurt. Now treason is reasonable to you?
