Tyranny of the Majority

Mass. Legislature approves plan to bypass Electoral College - Local News Updates - MetroDesk - The Boston Globe

There is a move afoot to make an end run around the electoral college that so many liberals hate. The idea that somehow politicians are going to pay more attention to "fly over country" is the big lie ... as is so often the case with liberal agendas, it is in fact exactly the OPPOSITE. TODAY you will see candidates stop in those states because the "value per voter" is much higher than voters in urban areas -- as the founders intended to help act as a brake on "the tyranny of the majority".

Presidential candidates now "ignore wide swaths of the country" they consider strong blue or red states and focus their campaigning on contested states, Eldridge said. If the president were picked by national popular vote, he argued, candidates would spread their attention out more evenly.

"That's really what we're talking about is making sure that every voter, no matter where they live, that they're being reached out to," he said.

What else can one say about this quote beyond "YES"!

"The thing about this that bothers me the most is it's so sneaky. This is the way that liberals do things a lot of times, very sneaky," he said. "This is sort of an end run around the Constitution."

Well, maybe one thing -- why is this so? It is so because liberals believe that the ends justify the means. If the 60 vote rule in the Senate has to be subverted so they can take over health care, so be it. If they have to use direct lies and sneak around the US Constitution, so be it. They believe that in the end, they can create "utopia" if they just get their way --- history tells us that their utopia is either bankruptcy, the gulag, or both. To which, they say "so be it".

    I think it is safe to say that 40 plus years of liberal meddling in public education to "improve things" have finally reached the end result they have long yearned to achieve.

    The average voter out there is sufficiently dumbed down and their brains sufficiently anesthetized by a nightly dosage of "sitcoms", that they no longer possess sufficient critical thinking skills to participate in the running of this country. They have instead abdicated their participation in exchange for the assurance they will be "taken care of", by voting for whatever the currently designated "smart guy" indicates will improve their current lot.

    It is very heartbreaking to see it end this way.

    Sadly there are options, but they are few.

    My hope is this election cycle will be the necessary turning of the tide with regards to who owns the states in the favor of Republicans, which will then allow many long years of Democratic gerrymandering to be thrown out.

    That is our key, non-violent, way out of this mess.
