Super Dave & The Electoral College
A person can hardly have a conversation with anybody these days without it turning into discussing politics and in talking with different people the past few days a lot has been said about the Electoral College and voter fraud. Is our elections really fair anymore, does the Electoral College really speak out for the nation as a whole. No matter how you look at it, large populous areas with larger low income people and as a rule under Democratic control are more or less controlling large portions of the country. That of course got me to start thinking about the whole issue and ended up doing a little research on the matter.
There is no doubt that the highly populated areas of the country exert a lot of control over the rest of the nation politically and the larger amount of tax dollars they receive.
To win the office of President in the United States it is supposed to be based upon the number of electoral electors each candidate wins. The total number of these electors is based upon there being 100 senators and 435 representatives. But your states that have larger population areas have more electoral electors and representatives in them. Have you ever noticed that it’s the larger populated areas representatives that you see or hear about on mass media all the time? It’s almost like the other representatives are not deemed as important in the country's business based upon them representing less known or popular areas.
Upon giving this some thought and looking over the maps of all of our states I have come up with this thought. Basically every state consists of counties within it and it’s within each of those counties that elections take place and votes are tabulated. So why not base a presidential election on the winner who receives the most votes in the individual counties, within each state, within the United States.
I know some are going to say that wouldn’t be fair, but why would it not be fair? A person seeking the office of the president of the United States would have to receive a win in let’s say 2000 counties within this country. Or another simple solution would be each state votes who they want to be the president. That way the candidate who wins the most states will be declared the winner. Leave the number of senators and representatives in office same as they are now. As I have said before all voting is to be done in person or by approved absentee vote and you have to have an approved ID to vote in person and in absentee as well as be a permanent resident of this country. And the same rules in federal elections are the same in all states with stiff federal penalties if not done so. Mass Media as well can’t declare a candidate a winner till the full course of the election has had its run and lawfully approved by the powers that be for that election. If a candidate wants to concede the election to an opponent that is their prerogative but not demanded of.
This clown show that was our last election we have all observed has got to stop. As much is possible, as much as humanly possible, all areas susceptible to allowing fraud to take place have to be eliminated. We have become more modern with holding our elections and are seeing more and more issues with them. It’s time the issues are dealt with before the elections in 2024.
