That ain't a good idea.

Yes it is . Our government was set up to slow down changes. It has been very effective . The democrats are trying to change it so they can slip laws in quickly before they can be debated. As example the law that nasty nancy tried to slip through a few weeks ago. Or even obamacare . As it is now all Americans votes count if we go to popular vote only the party with the most voters will decide everything. This is somewhAt like limiting the black slaves to only being two thirds of a person in an effort to limit reprsentation to control government.
A change to popular vote will eliminate the need to have states and maybe to civil unrest.

No Electoral college, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles ect. will control the entire country.

Some backward states have already essentially done that. Here in NY State, they have what is called "winner take all", which is essentially the same thing.


They are so corrupt (both parties) that they have rigged it so unless one is a member of one of the two major parties, they cannot vote in the primary elections.

Independent voters can just pound salt ! Yes, independents did not endorse any of the candidates put up, but any legal voter should be allowed to choose between what IS offered.

These things need correction..

This seems to be "part of the Plan" HRC lost a guaranteed Position where she would, carry out signing,dotting and crossing "T's"
That had not been finished by BHO. She would have placed 3 Supreme Court Judges
This would have put the "Process" in full swing
IMHO we would loose or arms in less then 10years from her leaving office
Then itís over no Blood shed

History in the making
MAGA
no longer just a political campaign theme/promise.
It is Reality 👍

Well, to say this country is in crisis, is an understatement.

All we can do at this point, is vote, and hope enough of the rest of America feels the same way.

Many want another civil war, thinking that such "a civil war would re-set America".

However, the agricultural demographics of 1860 are long since gone, and the general population is incapable of taking care of itself.
Starvation would quickly set into the reality of the population at large.

Patriotic intentions would fairly quickly switch to, "dog eat dog survival.

Like it or not, we live in a Walmart Super Center, McDonald's world, where most of our population can't even check the oil in their own car.

When people get hungry, they'll get desperate, and visions of different colored flags, and uniforms, with generals rising from the population to straighten out the corrupt politicians will quickly vanish.

The real battles will be fought in your front yard protecting yourself and your family from folks wanting what you may, or may not have.

It'll be a chaotic collapse our enemies have prayed for, for decades.

That’s a good take Dee.

Ammunition is like firewood. The more you have, the warmer you feel.
