Get Out & Vote Democrat

 

Put People in Congress Who Are Not Afraid of Trump

 

 


You seem to have no understanding of the Constitution or why it was written as it was or why the founders established this country. What it is and what the founders wanted is a union of states with an umbrella federal government to do a very limited number of things.  The purpose of the Senate is for each state to have equal representation.  The purpose of the electoral college is for the states to elect a president, not the popular vote because, as they were wise enough to foresee, some states could have a population large enough to swing an election.  The purpose of the House is to represent the population instead of the states.  Awfully wise men. our founders.  The funny thing about it is that liberals always agreed with that until they decided it would benefit them to do it a different way.

 

So, as far as state elections are concerned, there is no electoral college and there is no need to have one.  It's kind of like popularity polls.  Meaningless anywhere but with in a state.  Take Missouri, for example.  Trump's approval nationwide is below 50%.  In Missouri it's 54% and the incumbent Democrat Senator is saying vote for her because she is not one of the "crazy Democrats."  (She defines "crazy Democrats" as people who say what I'm seeing here.)


Good Points on the House & Senate - Begs The Questions

 

When is the Republican Controlled Congress going to exercise it's Constitutionally Implied oversight responsibility over a Run Amock President

 

One who thinks he can simply obliterate the 14th Ammendment with the Stoke of a pen?

 

One who thinks the way you Honor the US Military is to use them as Poltical Pawns 1 week B4 a  National Election?

Guess my Grandparents will all vote for Democrats for the first time ever.  They all died a number of years ago.

Georgia requires candidates to get more than 50 percent of the vote to win an election - if neither do, it goes to a runoff.

 

Most election years, we have a run-off and it is looking like that maybe the case this year too especially for governor where we do have a Libertarian candidate also in the running.


Like I said if your Candidate gets more votes they would be in the Run Off & if your Candidates gets more Votes in the Run Off they would win

 

What's your point?

 

 


Whatever the point was/is, it has nothing to do with the fact that there are no electoral votes so they have no bearing over any of the elections this year. YAY !
