Even a moron should understand this short, simple, civics lesson, punctuated by some amazing statistics. I doubt if this is taught in our schools, especially to both our Spanish only speaking citizens and illegal voters.
We have the Electoral College because our Constitutional laws require one.
A 39 second Must Read you should want to pass on.
In their infinite wisdom, the United States’ Founders created the Electoral College to ensure the STATES were fairly represented. Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the nation?
The following list of statistics has been making the rounds on the Internet It should finally put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense.
There are 3,141 counties in the United States.
Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57. (let that sink in)
There are 62 counties in New York State.
Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16.
But, Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens)
Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton won 4 of these counties; Trump only won Richmond)
Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.
When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.) DO NOT and SHOULD NOT speak for the rest of our country!
And…it’s been verified and documented that those aforementioned 319 square miles are where the majority of our nation’s problems foment. ANON
Well worth the 39 seconds to read? Now please share this. I did.
GIVE UP DONKEYS, TRY TO STEAL ANOTHER ELECTION IN 2020. CB
