Ignorant protesters have called for the electoral college to be abolished. Of course it makes sense that California Sen. Barbara Boxer is taking the lead on this cause, and has introduced a bill to ban the electoral college. Progressives continue to go nuts over the election of Donald Trump to President Apparently these people think most of the nations states 33 of them would vote to become irrelevant by ridding the country of the electoral college. Most states will then be underrepresented in major national elections, basically allowing massive liberal centers like New York and Los Angeles to decide who leads our country. That’s never going to happen.
According to the Washington Examiner, Boxer, a California Democrat who is retiring from the Senate, introduced the bill because she feels it’s unfair Clinton lost the election despite having the most votes.
“In my lifetime, I have seen two elections where the winner of the general election did not win the popular vote,” Boxer said. “When all the ballots are counted, Hillary Clinton will have won the popular vote by a margin that could exceed two million votes, and she is on track to have received more votes than any other presidential candidate in history except Barack Obama.
California swung 5.12% Democratic from the previous election, making it one of nine states where Hillary Clinton performed stronger than President Obama in 2012, and contributed to Clinton’s winning of the national popular vote despite losing the electoral college. Hillary Clinton carried California by the largest margin of any Democratic candidate since Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1936. WHat isnt taken into account is the many illegal non citizens in the united states who vote in California.
Judge Andrew Napolitano says that “if you are an illegal alien in California, get a driver’s license, register to vote, you can vote in local, state, and federal elections in California and those votes count.” On “Fox & Friends” Tuesday, host Steve Doocy explained, “The state of California has passed legislation that will automatically register eligible voters when they obtain or renew a driver’s license. Governor Jerry Brown says it’s a way to increase voter turnout, but critics warn the measure could add millions of illegal people to the rolls because the state allows undocumented aliens to get driver’s licenses.”
California Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1461, the New Motor Voter Act, which will automatically register people to vote through the DMV, and could result in illegal aliens voting.
Any person who renewed or secured a driver’s license through the DMV may now register to vote, or choose to opt out of doing so. Because illegal immigrants are now eligible for obtaining driver’s licenses, they could be allowed to vote in elections if the Secretary of State’s office fails to verify their eligibility properly. Brown and the California Democratic party know exactly what they are doing; as a Public Policy Institute survey showed, among unregistered adults, 49% lean toward the Democratic Party and 22% toward the Republican Party. Any bill permitting illegal immigrants to vote would cement the Democratic Party’s hold on California.
True the Vote founder Catherine Engelbrecht stated, “This bill is terrible. It makes an already bad situation much, much worse,” adding that California’s registration databases “lack the necessary safeguards to keep non-citizens off the voter rolls.”
Election Integrity Project of California President Linda Paine echoed that AB 1461 “will effectively change the form of governance in California from a Republic whose elected officials are determined by United States citizens and will guarantee that non-citizens will participate in all California elections going forward.” The Election Integrity Project of California had joined True the Vote to demand that brown veto the bill, calling it a path to “‘state sanctioned’ voter fraud.”
Although non-citizens’ driver’s licenses in California feature the phrases “Federal Limits Apply” and “not valid for official federal purposes,” True the Vote spokesman Logan Churchwell pointed out that state officials “specifically chose not to make non-citizen license holders searchable in their DMV database.”
Because it’s not likely California or Florida (who also uses the same motor voter law as California) will buckle down on voters who show up to vote with their drivers licence in hand – now more than ever we must never abandon the electoral college. Too many illegals and non-citizens are voting as it is in California. As many as 3 million non citizens voted in California in 2016 which by my acounts simply means the popular vote doesnt matter. If Hillary CLinton received more votes from non-citizens that doesn’t make her the one who receieved the most votes from Americans, and only Americans are legally allowed to vote.
