Here’s another case of the DEMs subverting the intent of the Founders. It’s not like they have any respect for them after all they were all white guys and mostly slave owners. That allows Progressives to ignore that the system the Founders set up that has allowed the United States to grow into the most powerful nation in the world with a system of government that respects, mostly, the rights of its individual citizens. They gave us a nation that with the exception of that period of unpleasantness has managed to have a peaceful transition of power every four years since the Constitution was enacted. Four States have passed legislation that will give their electoral voted to whatever Presidential Candidate wins the popular vote regardless of whether that candidate wins the State’s popular vote. There is a movement to pass the legislation in other states. This is simple a way to change our electoral process without having to anything so inconvenient as amending the Constitution. It’s another attempt by the DEMs to rig the system in their favor. It's a power grab intended to ensure their are no further transitions of power. For the rest of us it’s another nail in the coffin of the Republic.
