Yeah, a few big cities, cities that do not grow or process the foods, will be enslaving all the people who do that kind of stuff. They will control the people who work for a living processing fuels for their vehicles and to heat their homes.

Beto seems to be a moron, supporting the entitled. You do not have to be rich to be entitled. Everyone should be forced to go on a farm for a week when they go to school, they will appreciate the food on their tables more and maybe forty percent of the food in this country would not be wasted after that.

There they go again. Proving that this nation was truly created by genius's only to be ran by idiots. There is a lot of 'wisdom' in mob rule. Of course O' Dirt Eater isn't alone. Harris,Warr en,Cohen all agree with this stupidity.



Tuesday on MSNBC, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke was asked about his rival Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) call to abolishing the Electoral College for presidential elections in favor of a national popular vote.


Yay mob rule!

By the power of 'Regenerative' Dirt.

You will comply.

Can't win the legal way.

Change the rules.

You know, none of these people had an issue with the EC when barak won elections.
It appears to me they are simply full of sour grapes. When they can't win they choose to attempt to change the rules.
This too will come back to bite them in the butt. Ask Harry Reid about how well changing the rules goes for the democrats.
Sad part is, many will buy into this bs.


No way this ever passes, but if it did and Republicans won the popular vote, I wonder what the next move would be for these people. Even Obama's former (can't remember what) said this is a bad idea because nobody will go to the small states that they go to now. I didn't think you could go farther left than Obama, but here they are, farther left than Obama.

Well according to this it hasn't alway been the same.


www.historycentral.com...


One aspect of the electoral system that is not mandated in the constitution is the fact that the winner takes all the votes in the state. Therefore it makes no difference if you win a state by 50.1% or by 80% of the vote you receive the same number of electoral votes. This can be a recipe for one individual to win some states by large pluralities and lose others by small number of votes, and thus this is an easy scenario for one candidate winning the popular vote while another winning the electoral vote. This winner take all methods used in picking electors has been decided by the states themselves. This trend took place over the course of the 19th century.

I'm not on board with this.

I hope these two don't win the nomination. Or anyone calling for this.


Sadly most are getting on board with this. Luckily there are democrats out there that'll disagree and stay home on election day because of it. Part of the job of our elected government is to uphold the constitution and protect it. They're doing the exact opposite and going against the oath they swore on when they took office.

they want to lower the voting age to 16 and abolish the Electoral College

now think of what will happen to your country if they do it


What they really need to do is raise the voting age back to 21, I'd rather see 25 though. The only reason they moved it is because they thought if a person was old enough to fight in the Vietnam war then they were old enough to vote. 18 year olds don't join our military or appreciate it like they did in the 60's.

Of course they want to change the rules. If the bar can be lowered to fit an agenda, the dems will do it. I am surprised they haven't tried to pass a bill that gives additional voting weight to minorities and the gender dysfunctionals. As an example a white male has one vote, a white female 2 votes, a minority male 10 votes, minority female 20 votes, a mentally handicapped gender dysphoric transgender minority 1000 votes. I bet they'd try it if the could lol.

Cheers - Dave


OOOPH. I hope they don't get wind of your post. They're dumb enough to try something like that.

So what?

The left never had a problem with until after cheating their rears off and illegally spying on their opponent only to end up losing do they now have a problem with it.

The only thing that link 'proved' is we've have it for over 200 years.

So we are finally starting to get some word on a few of beto's positions.

So far it seems we have:

1: ban AR's
2: eliminate electoral college

He seems to be filling out well as a dem candidate.


He wants to tear the border wall down, too. And he apologizes profusely for his white privilege. Damn idiot.

Or change it to where on democrat votes count. Do you think these democrats are really stupid enough to think stuff like this would pass without a problem? Or do you think they know it wouldn't make it past the Supreme Court and just say it in their effort to hold office?

Democrats want the national election to follow the same rules as their primary. The votes don't matter and they don't give a rats ass about the voters, they'll just pick who they want to win. Sorry ol Bernie.

So what? - well what about the Diebold vote rigging fiasco or even this...

buzzflash.com... rother




The US presidential election was a celebration of the triumph of media over matter. To an objective observer, two facts are clear: Gore won the nationwide popular vote, and according to a recent Miami Herald analysis, he was also in all likelihood the favorite of Florida voters as well... In a fair count, without shenanigans or election irregularities, the Miami Herald estimated Gore would have won Florida by 23,000 votes. The Bush strategy all along was to prevent a recount and run out the clock.

Jeb Bush wasn't just the governor of Florida in 2000; he was a key orchestrator and strategist in the theft of the Florida election on behalf of his brother. It was Jeb who tee'd up the ball and let Antonin Scalia hit it into the stands on behalf of George W. Bush.


But facts dont matter as long as your side won?

I couldn't agree more. The voting age should be raised back to 21. Lowering the age to 16 only means we'll get policies favored by 16 year olds. In my state you aren't even allowed to drive by yourself until 17.

If you can't be trusted to drive a car, should you be entrusted with forming the government of your fellow citizens?

I also abhor voting rights for non-citizens. Anyone who is in favor of getting their vote cancelled out by a non-citizens vote should immediately leave, since you obviously have no idea how citizenship works in the first place.
Remember, a non-citizen does not necessarily mean "illegal alien". It could be someone from out of town voting in your town elections. They are "non-citizens" of your town and should not be able to vote for your selectmen. Duh! Why does this stuff even need to be explained!!?!?!?!?

IF you really want to talk about vote rigging.



In June 2016, a class action lawsuit was filed against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz for violating the DNC Charter by rigging the Democratic presidential primaries for Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders.

From the same people whining about the EC.

It's always been that way. The popular vote in the state/city/county picks the state officials, while the popular vote in each state sends the electoral votes to presidential candidate. It already takes 11 to 13 states to equal the amount of electoral votes just the state of CA gets. They already have a huge upper hand and still cry about the way things turned out.

Gore was in all likelihood the favorite to FL voters? In all likelihood? In other words, in my opinion...
