YES, THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE FAILED AMERICA
ABOLISH THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE
TRUMP IS A USURPER
The Electoral College of the United States failed not because Trump lost the popular vote by the largest margin in history only to carry enough state delegates to win the EC vote. The EC failed America and yes, Earth, by failing to do its Constitutional duty. As such the EC failed to consider all of America’s presidential candidates, not just those from the Democrat-Republican Duopoly, i.e. the Two-Headed Snake in bed with the Giant Octopus of Big Business and Bigger Banks. Then the Electoral College failed to deliberate over the candidates’ qualifications and character. The EC electors failed to even consider any of the strengths and weaknesses of the women and men competing to become POTUS and VPOTUS to best determine who shall best execute the responsibilities and carry the burdens of such high offices. The EC was design to prevent demagogues and their rabid mob of ignorant and dangerous goons from storming the political process to take over the country. Instead the EC allowed itself to be manipulated by the Fifty States and by two corporatocratic political parties to allow Donald Trump to usurp the Presidency. Events since January 2017, a mere four months ago, have only cemented the disastrous results of the Electoral College process as yet another example why we must abolish this institution. The country’s gone nuts in a world already on fire. It is as if the nation is seriously afflicted with the political and financial equivalent of toxoplasmosis parasites and brain tapeworms.
The Electoral College of the United States nearly fractured in early January 2017 thanks to the lack of courage and foresight among many electors and their intimidation by the State regimes to vote for one of the two dastardly primary party candidates. “Nearly fractured” is not the same as “fractured,” obviously, but enough EC electors threatened to vote their conscience for whom they felt would be the best for their state or threatened some kind of mutiny some were removed by their state regimes and replaced with docile go-alongers.
Imagine being told you would not be allowed to vote unless corporatocratic political party operatives in control of any one of the fifty American state regimes, a corrupt setup that would have appalled those Founding Fathers who opposed political parties in the first place, commanded you to cast your ballot for a particular candidate. And you thought you lived in a democratic republic, albeit a capitalist one.
Political parties were not supposed to dominate government and political systems. Yet networks of wealthy capitalist oligarchs control two of these parties. As such “their” Republicans and Democrats rule and distort the electoral process. Voting in America is a shameful and asinine mockery of democracy. Instead of voting for one despotic puppet one gets to choose between two despotic puppets. The Dem-Rep Duopoly dominates all Fifty States and thus determines for whom EC electors must vote.
Enough electors cast their votes without any attempt to deliberate to select Donald Trump as the next President even tho he LOST and LOST BIG by THREE MILLION votes! In an election riddled with accusations of electoral fraud by both sides, too. Ironically much of the current evidence beginning to emerge damns the Republicans altho they’re the one crying fraud the most and the loudest as the Democrats try to point out Russian interference in the process. The United States Electoral College of constitutional, capitalist, quasi-democratic republic thus elected a loser as President. Continue reading “The Electoral College Failed America” »
