Demand a True Democracy and Abolish Electoral College

senate - lawrence jackson

Target: Senator Barbara Boxer of California

Goal: Support abolishing the antiquated Electoral College system, and commit to contacting senators on behalf of this cause.

Senator Barbara Boxer of California, who will be retiring at the end of this term, has introduced one final major bill seeking to scrap the Electoral College system. Boxer calls the college an “outdated, undemocradic system that does not reflect our modern society,” adding that “every American should be guaranteed that their vote counts.”

The Electoral College was established by the Constitution as a compromise between a popular vote and a vote in Congress to elect the president. Essentially, each presidential candidate has a group of electors in each state (including the District of Columbia, with three electoral votes), though selection process and actual responsibility of electors vary by state. In some cases, there are no ramifications for electors voting differently than the way they were pledged by their constituents. Additionally, the winner-take-all system of the electoral college (with the notable exceptions of Maine and Nevada, which divide their electoral votes proportionally), means that minority voters within states are silenced and may justly feel there is no reason for them to vote at all.

This system is the reason George W. Bush defeated Al Gore in 2000, and it is the reason Donald Trump is our current president-elect. Hillary Clinton now leads the popular vote by over 1 million votes, making her the winningest loser in American history, but this will have no effect on the outcome of the election. Regardless of political leanings, many agree that the Electoral College is an outdated and unjust system, and that a direct popular vote would be preferable. Trump himself has criticized the Electoral College system, and in a recent 60 Minutes interview claimed he would not change his mind about it just because it brought him to victory. Trump stated, “I would rather see it where you went with simple votes.”

Sign this petition to support scrapping the Electoral College, in favor of giving every American citizen an equal vote. To help the bill succeed in the Senate, also contact your senators and provide a link to this petition.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Boxer,

I am writing to express my support for your latest bill calling for the abolition of the Electoral College System. I believe that the Electoral College is antiquated, unjust, and does not succeed in reflecting the values of the American people. A direct, democratic popular vote would be a much better way to elect the president of the United States.

By signing this petition, I show support for this bill, and commit to contacting my senators on the bill’s behalf. As it would require an amendment to the Constitution, this measure would also need to be ratified by three-fourths of the states within seven years of its passage. I pledge my continued support of this bill in my state, and hope to see it go into effect within my lifetime.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. The United States is NOT now nor has it ever been a Democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic. You guys need to seriously bone up on your history.

    • That is right. Quit crying and try to support the new president. Just because you lost doesn’t mean we need to change the system.

    • If you thought the allegations against Trump of Sexual Assaults weren’t shocking enough for you, you might want to have a look at the reporting in URLs, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lisa-bloom/why-the-new-child-rape-ca_b_10619944.html… and… http://www.deathandtaxesmag.com/306274/trump-court-date-set-jane-doe-child-rape-lawsuit/… and… https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/oct/12/donald-trump-jeffrey-epstein-alleged-rape-lawsuit… and… http://www.inquisitr.com/3597538/donald-trumps-underage-rape-accusations-could-be-the-deathbed-of-his-political-aspirations/… and… http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-elections/donald-trump-rape-sexual-assault-claims-court-republican-party-us-presidential-florida-a7360636.html… and… http://www.businessinsider.in/Law-Order-SVU-is-making-an-episode-about-a-Donald-Trump-like-character-and-rape-case/articleshow/54815600.cms… and– if confirmed!– we could very well see the first ever arrest of a WANNA-BE “President elect”, for C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!!
      .
      Furthermore, we may very well find that the T-R-U-E R-E-A-S-O-N this character became involved in this race at this time, was to H-I-D-E from these allegations of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E within the “smoke screen” of a Federal Presidential Election!… and!… I-N T-H-E G-U-I-S-E O-F S-E-R-V-I-N-G H-I-S C-O-U-N-T-R-Y! And… honestly!… I wouldn’t put it past this “huxster” and “hustler” to have P-L-A-Y-E-D the RNC, America, and his alleged RAPE VICTIM (and her family!), in order to escape the “cuffs of justice”!!
      .
      Given the FBI’s James Comey’s declaration that there was, and is nothing further to be pursued re Hillary Clinton’s emails (and… most notably!… involving charges!) the offerings at URL, http://yournewswire.com/nypd-hillary-clinton-child-sex-scandal/, would appear to be the ravings of a S-O-C-I-O-P-S-Y-C-H-O-P-A-T-H, and deserving of I-M-M-E-D-I-A-T-E R-E-D-R-E-S-S by the FBI!… and!… in light of the clear violation of the following…

      .

      2. A lying tongue,

      3. Hands that shed innocent blood,
      .
      18) 4. A heart that devises wicked schemes,

      .
      To sum up… now that the matter of Clinton’s emails have been resolved, what we’re now left with, are a series of Internet media reports, which/ that reveal amassed evidence concerning the complicit involvement of Donald Trump, I-N C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E! And the which– and despite the S-E-T court date for December!– should compel an IMMEDIATE INVESTIGATION into these CHILD ABUSE allegations, by way of the FBI!! And!… if need be!… precipitate the A-R-R-E-S-T of Donald Trump!!
      .
      Simply put… if what is alleged of Donald Trump is true, THEN THIS “PRESIDENT TO-BE”, S-H-O-U-L-D N-O-T H-O-L-D O-F-F-I-C-E!! I-N-D-E-E-D!… N-O P-R-E-S-I-D-E-N-T U-N-D-E-R S-U-C-H A C-L-O-U-D, S-H-O-U-L-D B-E E-N-T-I-T-L-E-D T-O B-E I-N T-H-E W-H-I-T-E H-O-U-S-E!

Unless… and of course!… the reports that Huffington Post (and MANY others!) have been publicizing, are all lies!… and!… further examples of “NETTROLLICIDE”!!
      .
      Luke 10: 16, states… “Whoever listens to you (a Christian Messenger!) listens to Me (Jesus Christ!); whoever rejects you (a Christian Messenger!) rejects Me (Jesus Christ!); but whoever rejects Me (Jesus Christ!) rejects Him who sent Me (GOD!)! [NIV]
      .
      And Matthew 25: 40, states… “And the King answering, will say to them, “Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of the least of these brothers of Mine (E.G., ABUSING A CHILD; FAILING TO ADHERE TO ROMANS 13: 1-3, AND, FAILING TO ADHERE TO A COUNTRY’S GODLY INSPIRED PARAMOUNT LAW, AND LESSER LAWS, IN REGARD TO THE NEEDS OF ONE OF THE LEAST OF THOSE OF CHRIST!), you did it to M-E.” [Berean Literal Bible]
      .
      And, last of all… GALATIANS 6: 7, states… “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked (BUT NOTE AGAIN, LUKE 10: 16!). Whatever a man sows, he will reap in return.” [NIV]
      .
      In addition to what may be true or bogus in a host of reports flying around the Net that Netizens (and American voters!) should have been– but, should be now!– in arms about, re the once Candidates in this now nigh past U.S. Federal Election, we can add this previously cited “C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L H-I-L-L-A-R-Y T-A-L-E”, to the list (though, I’m inclined to view the reports about Trump, as A-C-C-U-R-A-T-E!)!

That is to say!… in addition, to the N-E-C-E-S-S-A-R-Y I-N-V-E-S-T-I-G-A-T-I-O-N– A-T L-E-A-S-T!– concerning the allegations involving Donald Trump!!
      .
      Please!… no emails!
      .
      P.S.: PLEASE NOTE: PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE DECEMBER DATE FOR THE PENDING DECISIONMAKING BY THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE CONVERGES… FOR SOME STRANGE REASON!… WITH TRUMP’S S-E-T COURT DATE OF DECEMBER 16! AND!… TO BE HONEST!… I DON’T THINK THAT THIS IS C-O-I-N-C-I-D-E-N-T-A-L!! THEREFORE!… PLEASE NOTE BOTH THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE’S DECEMBER 19 SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES, AND, TRUMP’S DECEMBER 16 SCHEDULE OF ACTIVITIES RE HIS S-E-T COURT DATE! WE WOULDN’T WANT TO FIND… WOULD WE!… THAT WHILE EVERYONE’S GOT THEIR EYES AND EARS PEELED TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT BY THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, THAT THE “TRUMP MATTER” HAS BEEN “QUIETLY DISPOSED OF”!… OR!… VISA VERSA!

  2. Do people realize how the electoral college is done. It is done to stop candidates from dominating larger states. It is done fairly. Suck it up, band together and support Trump. He already is saving us money by not accepting pay for president. He is a business man and will get us on the road to recovery. Obama ruined our country!

    need true democracy now! abolish electorial college now! we do not need trumph! we need somebody good!

  4. LITIGATIONALLY VS PETITIONALLY REMOVING THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE
    .
    .
    In even a cursory examination of this outrageous nigh past– though, tentative!– U.S. Election, at the root of the abysmal failure of the U.S. “Electoral System” to achieve a D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C Plurality, is its failure to facilitate the E-S-S-E-N-T-I-A-L D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C R-E-Q-U-I-R-E-M-E-N-T of a “D-I-R-E-C-T E-L-E-C-T-I-O-N”, through a “O-N-E V-O-T-E-R, O-N-E V-O-T-E” Elections System! And due– PRIMARILY!– to the institution of a Republican preferred U-N-D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C “Electoral College”!… with “Electors”, and INDIRECT “Electoral Votes”!
    .
    Consequently!… given the astounding and P-E-R-V-E-R-S-E Trump “win”, numerous Petitions have now emerged online– at least!– to challenge, and to eliminate the Electoral College! To many Americans– and I suggest, to MOST Americans!– Trump becoming the “President-elect”… and despite losing the “popular vote”!… was– and still is!– A S-H-O-C-K T-O T-H-E C-O-R-E O-F D-E-M-O-C-R-A-C-Y, A-N-D, T-O R-A-T-I-O-N-A-L P-O-L-I-T-I-C-A-L D-I-S-C-O-U-R-S-E! And the situation is reminiscent of the controversial 2000 Presidential race between George W. Bush and Al Gore!… in which Gore won the “popular vote”, but, Bush was elected President!
    .
    Under the U.S Constitution, until the designated Electors of the Electoral College assemble in their state capitals to place in their votes (and in this present process, on December 19th!)… followed, by a meeting of Congress to affirm the result (and in this present process, on January 6th)!… things are still not fully settled! In most of the country, it’s a “winner-takes-all” system: whoever wins a state’s “popular vote” is awarded all the Electoral votes for that state! The catch is, that these votes are based on a state’s number of Senators and House Representatives!… so, they vary from state to state! It’s more important to win states with a high proportion of Electoral Votes– like Trump taking Wisconsin, and Florida!– than to receive the most votes overall! November 8th’s U.S. vote, was– technically!– not to make Trump the next President, but, to determine who the 538 Electors in the various states across the country will be! It is those Electors who will bear the responsibility of casting the votes that will “legally elect” the next U.S. President (i.e…. and presently!… on December 19th!)! And it is for this reason, why millions of Hillary Clinton supporters… and supporters of “democracy”!… are anxious to lobby Electors, in an effort to trump Trump!
    .
    And so… this “mysterious victory” has reawakened… of course!… interest in, and has revived tactical approaches to, the elimination of the much criticized Electoral College! And, VEHEMENT criticisms!… and which are not only rife today, but, which have flurished for decades!
    .
    And, for example, David Boise… a lawyer who represented Gore, in Bush v. Gore, in 2000!… told the New York Times, that he considers the Electoral College a “historical anomaly”! A view, that has been echoed by millions online– at least!– since 2000!… and, by millions more, since November the 8th!
    .
    However!… the S-O-L-U-T-I-O-N to the evils inhere within this nearly completed U.S. Election, is not to place emphasis on merely changing the minds, and votes, of Electors!… as is currently the case with the Lady Gaga supported Change.org Petition (among other “Elector Lobby” Petitions!)… but, on challenging CONSTITUTIONALLY (and through TORT!… AND, NOW!), the inherent violation of the “Principles of Democracy (i.e., those respective of one’s Democratic Right to a ‘DIRECT ELECTION’, and, to ‘ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE’!)” through the present UNCONSTITUTIONAL, AND TORTIOUS DEFERENCE to the Electoral College in the first place!… and, to the “Colleg(e)al Conventions” that will finally determine who becomes President!
    .
    Challenging the Electoral College based on a “C-O-N-S-T-I-T-U-T-I-O-N-A-L I-M-P-E-R-A-T-I-V-E” to bind the Electoral College to the “Principles of Democracy”, is as an important consideration for those desiring an end to the Electoral College, as it is for those desiring the beginning of D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-I-C PLURALITIES! If the T-R-U-E “Principles of Democracy” are said (IN A SOUND COURT OF LAW!) to necessitate the B-I-N-D-I-N-G A-D-H-E-R-E-N-C-E of governments to the “popular decisions” of an electorate (R-E A-N-Y E-L-E-M-E-N-T T-H-A-T W-O-U-L-D P-O-R-T-E-N-D A-N E-L-E-C-T-O-R-A-T-E-‘-S G-O-V-E-R-N-A-N-C-E!… and e.g., the Electoral College!)”, then, a CONSTITUTIONAL CHALLENGE (and TORT CHALLENGE!) against an ENTRENCHED MARGINALIZATION of an electorate’s “popular vote” through a “S-L-I-G-H-T O-F H-A-N-D” and “E-N-D R-U-N” around the “Principles of Democracy (e.g., through the Electoral College!)”, would go a long way toward “EXPOSING” what these Electoral mechanisms have been– and are!– all about! And!… MOST IMPORTANTLY!… such a challenge would reveal the veracity (or lack, thereof!) of the claims in support of the Electoral College!
    .
    The bottom line, is:… ANY ATTEMPT TO UNDERMINE THE B-I-N-D-I-N-G OF THE “POPULAR EXPRESSION” TO A “POPULAR ELECTION” BY WAY OF SOME “POLITICAL CIRCUMLOCUTORY OBFUSCATION (E.G., THE CLAIMS IN SUPPORT OF AN ELECTORAL COLLEGE!)”, SHOULD BE MADE SUBJECT TO “JUDICIOUS” CONSTITUTIONAL (AND TORT!) ADJUDICATION! AND SUCH “COLLEG(E)AL CIRCUMLOCUTORY OBFUSCATION”, SHOULD NOT BE MADE SYNONYMOUS WITH A “REASONED DEFINITION” OF, AND “REASONED APPROACH” TO, WHAT CONSTITUTES THE T-R-U-E “PRINCIPLES OF DEMOCRACY”!
    .
    In the face of the EVIDENCE that the U.S. Electoral System is a breach of the “Principles of Democracy”!… and, that the process Americans have been about (i.e., involving the Electoral College– at least!) has been a SHAM!… a competent court of jurisdiction could just as easily turn around, and say:… “You know… you guys (Senators and Congresspersons!) have been made WELL AWARE of the CLEAR CONSTITUTIONAL BREACHES inhere within the Electoral College! And so!… YOU ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE!… A-N-D Y-O-U A-R-E N-O-W O-B-L-I-G-E-D T-O A-M-E-N-D T-H-E P-R-O-C-E-S-S, F-O-R-T-H-W-I-T-H (and the stated Conventions of the Amending Formula, N-O-T-W-I-T-H-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G!… and, the present Conventions and obligations of the Electoral College’s Electoral voting process, N-O-T-W-I-T-H-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G!)!!… AND TO INSTITUTE WHAT HAS BEEN CALLED FOR BY COUNTLESS JUDICIAL ADVOCATES AND ADVOCACIES, AND, BY SOUND JURIPRUDENCE!!”
    .
    Of course, the legal machinations to be pursued, depend on what’s being argued before the court, and on how well this is presented!… and– ultimately!– before the US Supreme Court! But!… and for God’s sake– if for no one else’s sake!… Senators and Congresspersons (and America’s top legal minds!– at least!) have been made FULLY AWARE of the “Principles of Democracy”!… and have been made FULLY AWARE of the need to UPHOLD THE “DEMOCRATIC WILL” of the Electorate! And so… it’s not as if these learned political souls would be “blindsided” by a Court’s decision, that these act… AND ACT NOW!… to remedy a centuries-old injustice! Adherence to a Constitutional Amending Formula is of less importance… as is adhering to the present legislated Electoral College’s Electoral Conventions!… than adherence to the CORNERSTONE OF DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS!… THE CORNERSTONE OF DEMOCRACY! All a judge need say, is:… “Cut the cr*p!… and get on with it!”
    .
    And thus!… concerned Americans– I believe!– must refocus their efforts… FULL EFFORTS!– AND FOREMOST!… ON SEEKING (N-O-W!) TO CONSTITUTIONALLY (AND THROUGH TORT!) TO UPHOLD THE “PRINCIPLES OF DEMOCRACY”! And although Americans are free… of course!… to join in on the lesser “Electoral Lobby” Petitions, the “B-E-T-T-E-R R-E-T-U-R-N” will be from the suggested LEGAL ACTIONS (and through– e.g.– “Crowd Funding”!), and the “Abolitionist Petitions (such as those of MoveOn.org!… and, the like!)”! And!… inasmuch!… as the present ILLEGAL DENIAL of “DIRECT ELECTIONS”, and of “ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE (by way of the very existence of the Electoral College!)”, I-S T-H-E C-E-N-T-R-A-L P-R-O-B-L-E-M!
    .
    To sum up… the “Equal Protection Clause” is part of the FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT to the United States Constitution! The clause… which took effect in 1868!… provides, that no state shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction, “the equal protection of the laws (and, I’ll add here, Equal Constitutional Protection re the application of the Constitution with respect to the state application of Electoral College Voting, and a state’s elections law that applies to a given Federal Election!)”!
    .
    A primary motivation for this clause was to validate the “equality provisions” contained in the Civil Rights Act of 1866, which guaranteed that A-L-L P-E-O-P-L-E (and, I’ll add here, ALL AMERICAN VOTERS!… AND REGARDLESS OF THE STATE IN WHICH A VOTER RESIDES!) would have Rights EQUAL to those of A-L-L C-I-T-I-Z-E-N-S (e.g., whatever is afforded in one state pertaining to Electoral College voting, and a state’s elections law that applies to any given Federal Election, SHOULD BE AFFORDED TO A-L-L A-M-E-R-I-C-A-N-S!)! As a whole, the FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT marked a large shift in “American Constitutionalism”, BY APPLYING– SUBSTANTIALLY!– MORE CONSTITUTIONAL RESTRICTIONS AGAINST THE STATES THAN HAD APPLIED BEFORE THE CIVIL WAR!
    .
    The meaning of the Equal Protection Clause has been the subject of much debate!… and inspired the well-known phrase, “Equal Justice Under Law”! This clause was the basis for Brown v. Board of Education (1954)… the Supreme Court decision that helped to dismantle racial segregation! And!… which also formed the basis for many other Human Rights decisions which/ that REJECTED DISCRIMINATION AGAINST PEOPLE BELONGING TO VARIOUS GROUPS (and I’ll add here, a “hoped-for” future decision:… a state’s discrimination in its application of Electoral College voting, and in its creation and application of its elections law that applies to any given Federal Election, when compared to the creation and the application of such, state-to-state!… AND, DISCRIMINATION WITH RESPECT TO “DIRECT ELECTIONS”, AND “ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE”!)!
    .
    And despite the said “fact” that the Equal Protection Clause itself applies only to state and local governments, the Supreme Court held in Bolling v. Sharpe (1954) that Equal Protection requirements within the FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT apply to the Federal Government through the “DUE PROCESS CLAUSE” of the FIFTH AMENDMENT! IN OTHER WORDS, EQUAL PROTECTION AND BENEFIT REQUIREMENTS MUST APPLY STATE-TO-STATE, RE ANY ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTING, THE CREATION AND APPLICATION OF ANY STATE ELECTION LAW THAT WOULD APPLY TO A GIVEN FEDERAL ELECTION, AND, TO “DIRECT ELECTIONS”, AND “ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE”!
    .
    Well, folks!… and to cut to the chase!… even in adopting the Conventions of the Electoral College (leaving aside– for the moment!– the issue of “DIRECT ELECTIONS”, and “ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE”!), STATE-RUN ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTING, AND STATE-RUN ELECTION LAWS GOVERNING ANY GIVEN FEDERAL ELECTION BY WAY OF THE POWERS GRANTED STATES THROUGH ARTICLE II, SECTION 1 OF THE U.S. CONSTITUTION (WHICH GIVES THE STATES EXCLUSIVE CONTROL OVER AWARDING THEIR RESPECTIVE ELECTORAL VOTES!), ARE PRESENTLY IN BREACH OF THE FEDERAL “DUE PROCESS CLAUSE” OF THE FIFTH AMENDMENT OF THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION (AND THEREBY, FEDERAL “EQUAL PROTECTION AND BENEFIT”, STATE-TO-STATE!), IN THAT, THE INDIVIDUAL STATES (BY MERE VIRTUE OF THEIR INDIVIDUAL APPROACH TO ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTING, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE CREATION AND APPLICATION OF STATE ELECTION LAWS THAT WOULD APPLY TO ANY GIVEN FEDERAL ELECTION!) S-Y-S-T-E-M-I-C-A-L-L-Y D-E-N-Y C-O-L-L-E-C-T-I-V-E/ U-N-I-L-A-T-E-R-A-L F-E-D-E-R-A-L D-U-E P-R-O-C-E-S-S A-N-D E-Q-U-A-L P-R-O-T-E-C-T-I-O-N A-N-D B-E-N-E-F-I-T T-O A-L-L A-M-E-R-I-C-A-N C-I-T-I-Z-E-N-S, WHEN THE RESPECTIVE STATES’ ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTING AND ELECTIONS LAWS ARE COMPARED SIDE-BY-SIDE/ STATE-TO-STATE! BUT, MOREOVER, THIS STATE-TO-STATE BREACH OF FEDERAL “DUE PROCESS”… AND THUS, FEDERAL “EQUAL PROTECTION AND BENEFIT”!… WITH RESPECT TO THE STATE-TO-STATE APPARATUS FOR ELECTORAL COLLEGE VOTING, AND THE CREATION AND APPLICATION OF STATE-TO-STATE ELECTIONS LAWS, DOESN’T EVEN TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE MORE SERIOUS BREACH OF FEDERAL “DUE PROCESS (AND THUS, FEDERAL ‘EQUAL PROTECTION AND BENEFIT’!)”, IN THE DISCRIMINATORY STATE-TO-STATE FAILURE TO FACILITATE “DIRECT ELECTIONS”, AND “ONE VOTER, ONE VOTE”!
