They Don't Want Your Vote to Matter

Washington Examiner - Homeland eyes special declaration to take charge of elections.  Homeland Security is responsible for protecting critical infrastructure such as our road system. They are now asking whether or not the electoral process should be considered critical infrastructure and if they should be in charge of protecting it. This is interesting. Donald Trump questions if the election might be rigged, the United Nations sends observers and Homeland Security wants in.

I want my readers to really understand this, the .01% that work together to determine what happens do not like democracy. They never have. Remember that women and blacks were not allowed to vote in this country, that is over half the population was not allowed to vote. In fact, the founding fathers wanted to limit voting to land owners, the gentry. Nothing has changed.

U.S. News and World Report - A Candidate's Death Could Delay or Eliminate the Presidential Election.  Here is a quote from the article, "There's nothing in the Constitution which requires a popular election for the electors serving in the Electoral College," says John Nagle, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame, meaning the body that officially elects presidents could convene without the general public voting. "It's up to each state legislature to decide how they want to choose the state's electors," Nagle says. "It may be a situation in which the fact that we have an Electoral College, rather than direct voting for presidential candidates, may prove to be helpful." 

Now kiddies, I want you to understand what the media is saying. I have posted articles before where the mainstream media stated that the electoral college is not bound by the votes in their state; but, that is a lie, they are bound by their state laws and constitutions. Political parties do not have to follow rules, they are private entities that can make up their rules; but, the electoral college is a constitutional function and not a private organization.

The second article proposes that if one of the party candidates dies before the election that the election could be postponed until they found a new party candidate. This is nonsense, the constitution says we elect people not parties. By the way, this attempt at frustrating the vote of the people was not discussed when Robert Kennedy was killed after winning the California primary in 1968. If Trump is killed or Hillary is killed prior to the presidential election and congress tries to postpone the election, we will have a real constitutional crisis.
