Abolish the Electoral College? – The Red Alert News

Abolish the Electoral College?

Yesterday, the ultra-liberal Editorial Board of The Washington Post opined that the Electoral College should be abolished. The Post is terrified that if President Trump is not declared the winner by the Electoral College this year – something that is yet to be decided – he might run again in 2024 and win in the Electoral College four years from now.

The Post writes, “It is alarming that a candidate came so close to winning while polling more than 5 million fewer votes than his opponent [Joe Biden] nationwide. The electoral college, whatever virtues it may have had for the Founding Fathers, is no longer tenable for American democracy.”

But, isn’t that the point of the Electoral College – to protect the minority from the majority? After all, the United States is a republic, not a pure democracy.

What is your opinion? Should the Electoral College be abolished?

    I like to know why the people not told how many votes there was not cast for either one but for other candidates/write in and how they are counted towards the electoral vote

    Yes, yes, yes, we need to do away with the electoral college. Sparse population never needed protection or representation. It should be done by popular vote! The founding fathers were all drunken bastards that didn’t know what they were doing. Our (s)election process needs revamping.

    I like to know why is trump still in the White House when he is no longer president? He should be carried out and Biden should be sitting in the oval office. trump is done! Biden is certified as president as we all voted for him. That’s certification enough. What more proof does the old fool trump need? His family has more sense in trying to convince the low life to concede but as stubborn as trump is, he will have to learn the hard and humiliating way. TOO BAD trump!

        The founding fathers set up an incredible system for our country. I doubt if anyone alive today could be so forward thinking or thorough. They tried to cover all the possibilities that might occur. If anyone has studied real history (not the stuff that is taught today), they would know that.

      That just means that the idiots in both NY and CA WOULD have a vote and thats it. Without the electoral college, the other 48 would have to go along with who NY and CA put in. Thats not fair.

    This opinion by the Washington Post to abolish the electorate college is so narrow minded and self absorbing not withstanding intellectual integrity it”s plain foolish. The electoral college was undoubtedly one of the most brilliant concepts to protect the United States from too much control in various states represented. This is why liberal so called journalism belongs in the ‘opinion column’ where it belongs.

        With what (yes “what” as trash is “what”, intelligent people would be “who) the people in Ca have elected to go to Washington our country benefits greatly by not allowing them any more idiots to shove their socialist/communist crap down the throats of good & intelligent people who want nothing to do with their failing state government & communist ideas.

    • Larry says:

      Amen Tim!!!!! There are just liberal morons pushing to do away with the electoral college because they are idiots with a major lacking for intelligence. Yet not a one of the fools can give a legitimate reason as to why 4-5 states should be able to select our president while the other 45 or 46 states have no say-so. Sounds like some a stupid liberal would come up with. 10% select the president and the other 90% just has to accept what they decide. It’s just more b.s. from liberal idiotic theory.

    Our founding fathers realized that farming, ranches and other land intensive occupations that provide us with food and other supplies essential for living could lose their land with a one person one vote plan. Hense we have the electorial college to make sure these essential land intensive occupations continue to exist. Otherwise a high population of the poor will vote agracultrual land be turned into low cost housing. Then where will our food come from?

    I would like to know how our government can allow a bunch of stupid son’s of bitches communist even run for president exspiecaly when they are communist crooks and why government has not put a stop to even thinking anyone can turn our FREE COUNTRY ??? And shit in the faces of all that died for this country PISS and spit and slap all of our VETS right in the damn face . nothing like this should have ever happened . if I were president the very first word I heard of something like this they all would have been on a firing line .and shot be my own ability I am a damn good shot !!! And how were able to get away with human trafficking selling to China and Ukraine . this is the biggest most disgraceful thing OUR GOVERNMENT could ever let happen. I have no more respect for these rotten son of a bitches.

  7. Steven Van Ness says:

    The electoral college is the only fair way for everybody to have a voice. It should not be eliminated. Our founding fathers were very astute in establishing a solid foundation for which the country could grow on. It is a sorry state of affairs when the principles are trying to be pushed aside. Hopefully the people who want to make drastic changes, pull the heads out of their asses. God bless the USA.

  9. Leon Lurie says:

    The ELEC.COLLEGE is the only thing the DEMS cant buy—–IF THEY GET RID OF
    it, THIS COUNTRY will be controlled by those IDIOTS & won’t be worth living in.
    THAT’S WHY THEY ARE SPENDING A FORTUNE IN GEORGA TO TRY & CONTROL THE SENATE. The only CHECK & BALANCE LEFT IF BIDEN IS PRESIDENT.

  10. all liberal politicians crooked and commies. only good ones are dead ones.

  11. CJ says:

    He didn’t lose – if you get rid of all the illegal ballots, and return all the votes that were Trumps, but were switched to Biden by cheating, our President t beat the crap out of the communist Biden!

  12. Kathy L Gotter says:

    If the Electorial college is done away with….us in the Midwest and in all of the less populated states might as well kiss our votes away because we won’t have any say in anything that goes on only the highly populated very very liberal states will rule the roost. Which is a very scary situation. They already think they know what’s best for us.
