  1. So, you're all in favor of burning down the cities and dragging people out of their cars. Got it.
  2. Well, at least you're right about the president. Turns out the one Nixon signed was ceremonial. As for the states... A proposed amendment becomes part of the Constitution as soon as it is ratified by three-fourths of the States (38 of 50 States). https://www.archives.gov/federal-register/constitution
  3. What does a ratification among the fifty governors mean to you? Hint: I didn't say that all fifty governors have to concur.
  4. Because equalling the force stops the violence? http://www.snoho.com/html/stories_2020/06032020_snohomish_no_riot_antifa_says_didnt_post_message_that_brought_swirl_of_people.html
  5. Just a news article. Seems that some people aren't going to lay around like wet lasagna noodles and watch their stores and homes explode.
  6. You have to change the Constitution to get rid of EC.

  9. So, to change the U.S. Constitution and remove the Electoral College, you will need a two thirds majority in both the House and Senate, a ratification among the fifty governors and the president's signature. Can you get all that? No, there aren't enough people who agree to that.
  10. Wicked Witch of the West
  11. And if WWW Clinton had won the very same way, you'd have no complaint with EC.
  12. And you end up with guys like Pol Pot.
  13. Okay, so do you want to have only four states consistently deciding every election for the other forty six?
  14. There aren't any examples because the Electoral College has prevented them.
  15. You elect a president who advocates some policies and laws and opposes others. Whatever gets vetoed or signed is going to depend on who is holding office.
  16. So you don't have only four states dictating policy and law for the other forty six.
  17. Are two lions and a lamb voting on what's for lunch a fair election? Oh, you don't understand metaphor.
  18. The Electoral College is there to prevent the populous states from consistently bullying the sparsely populated states.
  19. The unrelated attachments that ride on bills make up the daily hundreds of new laws
  20. They seem be gravitating toward broadening their power. Btw, this is what makes line item veto a good idea. It would stop the trend in its tracks.
  21. Hundreds of new laws are passed every single day in Congress and everyone is in on it. Every political party has its fingers in the pie. Have we already reached the point of conundrum, where government can no longer function under the weight of its own laws and policies?
  22. So, you're not even going to see whether this actually gets to trial.
