The fathers(&mothers) of our GREAT CONSTITUTION established a REPUBLIC (AKA:REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY)
Reason: as Aristotle said: “democracies have many heads and few brains” the FOUNDERS of this Great Nation(the ONLY one in the world with this unique Constitution), they instituted the ELECTORAL COLLEGE! To prevent the masses(misguided by the politicians IE.: DNC) from CONTROLLING the NATION. Like the megacities-states (NY,CHICAGO, CA, etc.) wow! They were geniuses!
Want to learn more about it?… read TOWARD DEMOCRACY a great new historical book(~1500 pages[I’m on 554) FROM THE 1600S TO PRESENT on how we became what we are. Too busy to educate yourselves?… remember: KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!
Read below where we would be if it wasn’t for the electoral college. No time for it?… read about Venezuela, Peru, Mexico Germany, France. Forget it! read about the rest of the world!
They’re all the same! CONTROLLED by the masses manipulated by the politicians(hello Aristotle!)
DON’T FORGET CHILDREN! They are VULNERABLE!
WHY ARE WE DIFFERENT THAN ANY OTHER NATION IN THE WORLD? (And most everyone wants to escape from theirs)
There are 3,141 counties in the United States.
Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.
There are 62 counties in New York State.
Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16.
Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes. (so did Gore the inventor of the internet and global warming-remember?)
In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond)
Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3, 797,000 square miles. When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles (<0.0001%) should dictate the outcome of a national election.
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.) don’t and shouldn’t speak for the rest of our country.
THANK YOU FATHERS(AND MOTHERS)!
“Le mieux est l’ennemi du bien”(~the masses are the enemy of the good-o.f.) by Montpierre, John Smith and many 1700s philosophers. What destroyed the French Revolution?…Robespierre ignorance if the US Constitution main title: Representative Democracy! No wonder the demos want a CONSTITUTIONAL AMMENDMENT TO IT!
Enjoy your REPUBLIC!
