Electoral College has value
To the editor:
The Democrats are working hard to convince you that the Electoral College is not fair and must go. These are the same ones who couldn’t count the votes in Iowa, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who is terrified of her garbage disposal, and didn’t know that lettuce came up from the dirt. They are showing their brilliance unlike the Founding Fathers of the greatest nation ever to exist, the United States.
Our founders who were given God’s genius, came up with the Electoral College as a fair way to elect our president. It gives each state some influence. If we only had popular vote, not only culled we not count them accurately, but the big states would have a much larger voice. States with a low number of electoral votes would never see a candidate for president except on TV. The term for those states is “flyover country.” Candidates would visit only highly populated states like Texas, California and NewYork. The Electoral College is based on the number of representatives and senators n each state. The number of electors will not change until after the next census in 2020.
In the 2018 election, California passed a new law called Voter Harvesting. This permits party workers to go door to door and collect votes. These were turned in after the election in large bags. They were not even checked, and managed to flip seven Republican seats in the House to Democrat. Nice. Nancy Pelosi has plans to pass this nationwide. Nice. This is only one of the reasons you should never vote Democrat. If the Democrats ever get control of the House and Senate, the United States of America will be gone.
Editor’s note: While some media outlets did argued that California’s new law allowed for the Democrats to turn what, on the surface, looked like an even election in 2018 into a rout, that theory was later rebuked by the Los Angeles Times editorial board on Nov. 9, 2019.
In the same editorial, the Times went on to mention that the Republicans also practiced ballot harvesting in the election before later claiming they had not.
The Times later, in the same editorial, did point out that the practice of ballot harvesting is a dangerous one.
