Surprisingly, Republicans and Conservatives Shouldn’t Fear a National Popular Vote
Right Wing News ^ | December 12, 2017 | Rachel Alexander

Posted on 12/12/2017 6:32:39 PM PST by Mafe

Republicans are hesitant to switch from our winner-take-all state laws allocating electors to the electoral college to using the National Popular Vote. The National Popular Vote Plan would award all of a state’s electors to the candidate who wins the most popular votes in all fifty states. There is a fear that such a move will benefit Democrats, since Democrats won the popular vote even though they lost the elections in 2000 and 2016. But the truth is, Republicans are likely going to lose their ability to win the necessary swing state of Florida in the future, and they can win the popular vote by campaigning differently.

The demographics of Florida are changing. More and more illegal immigrants are entering the country. Additionally, Puerto Ricans are flooding the country due to economic chaos and humanitarian crisis following Hurricane Maria at home. When they enter the U.S., because they are American citizens they can vote, and they vote overwhelmingly Democrat. Hillary Clinton had an almost three-to-one edge among Puerto Ricans in Florida last year. Both illegal immigrants and legal Puerto Ricans are counted in the census which is used for determining how many congressional seats and electoral votes Florida receives. This will soon result in an increase in Florida’s electoral votes, which will lean more Democratic as increasing numbers of Puerto Ricans vote (this doesn’t even take into consideration possible illegal immigrant voter fraud).

California and New York will determine the election if that’s the case.

The Democrats are probably already stealing 20 million votes. They can steal a lot more in Californicate if they want to. No point now, however.

How about we stick to the Constitution?

BULLSH*T!

Surprisingly, our founding fathers were a lot smarter than Rachel Alexander.

National Popular Vote = Instant Civil War.

Leave USConstitution alone, unless there is a _very_ good reason. Our fathers were a _lot_ smarter than most modern USAians.

We don’t. Each state has an election that is decided by popular vote.

Yes the founders were brilliant men.

They used the term natural born citizen specifically to exclude the children of foreign nationals, who would naturally have divided allegiances and loyalties.
They did not use the term native born to include everyone born here.
One is only naturally an American when there is no possibility of being anything else, born here of citizen parents.

Barack Obama should be proof enough for anyone that they were right.

This article is absolute information warfare and propaganda. A national vote would allow California alone, with its sanctuary policy, to decide the Presidency because it would simply allow all Mexicans, who would vote for a weak President (i.e. a demo_rat), to vote in their elections. This is why the vote in Los Angeles county was so absolutely one sided to the demo-rat candidate in the 2016 Presidential election.

National popular vote exponentially increases the efficiency of vote rigging in the big cities.

Stupid. It basically makes the coastal cities rule the nation. And it turns us into a single nation rather than a Republic of United States.

Electoral College was good enough then, it is fine now. No WAY ‘popular vote’ - unless people dip their fingers in purple dye.
