The following states have recently enacted a law designed to disenfranchise their voters. They are:
– New Jersey
– Rhode Island
– New York
The District of Columbia has joined the bandwagon; Pennsylvania is considering legislation as well.
It should come as no surprise that these states (and territory in the case of D.C.) trend blue – some more so than others – politically. Liberals have always been about taking power away from the ballot box and handing it over to the judicial bench and bureaucrats.
The law in question sounds innocent enough. It says that voters cast their vote. But that their vote doesn’t really matter – it’s theater, kind of like what happens when North Koreans go to vote and it’s all make-believe because the ruling elites are the only ones that matter in the process. You see, the law also says that no matter how the popular vote in any given state turns out, the state’s electors must all vote for whoever wins the nationwide popular vote.
In other words, if you live in one of those states, it no longer matters whom you vote for because your state government just decided that your state’s electors will ignore your ballot, and instead go for whoever wins the popular vote.
It’s as democratic – and remember, democracy is the worst form of government – and dangerous as can be. Remember, democracy is five wolves and three hens voting on dinner with a bobcat there to break the tie. The whole thing, of course, is a gerrymandered scam designed to produce a deep blue electoral monolith designed to make sure the next Democrat that runs for President wins because all those illegals, felons, and all that voter fraud failed to put Hillary in the White House in 2016.
If the law is upheld in the courts, the consequences will probably backfire hilariously on the left. Think about 2020.
In 2020, Californians and New Yorkers might in fact vote for Jill Stein – Kanye West, Elizabeth Warren – Chelsea Clinton, or Hillary Clinton – Al Gore, but when Donald Trump sweeps the popular vote their states will also have to go for Trump in the electoral college.
