Globalist Democrats Continue Beating the Drums for Electoral College Abolition

Published

Former Attorney General Eric Holder wants to get rid of the Electoral College.

Holder recently tweeted that the Electoral College is a “vestige of the past”, “undemocratic”, and “forces candidates to ignore majority of the voters and campaign in a small number of states”.

Holder’s Tweet was in response to a Washington Post article covering the rise of the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact—the latest push to destroy the Electoral College.

11 states and the District of Columbia have hopped onboard this bandwagon, which would award the 2020 presidential election to whoever wins the popular vote. However, the catch is that it will only be activated if states representing at least 270 Electoral College votes approve the law.

The Constitution delegates to the states the power to determine how electoral votes are awarded during national elections. Currently, most states award electoral votes on a winner-take-all basis, which gives all of their electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the most votes within the state.

The move to abolish the Electoral College came in response to Hilary Clinton’s defeat in the 2016 elections, where she won the popular vote but lost in the Electoral College, where it really counts. This is nothing news, as Democrats found themselves in similar scenario in 2000 when George W. Bush defeated Al Gore in a similar fashion.

Democrats argue that the Electoral College is undemocratic and outdated, but this could not be further from the truth. The Electoral College is one of the more far-sighted policies that the Founders crafted.

If globalist Democrats had their way, the abolition of the Electoral College would give disproportionate power to major urban centers like Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York. Presidential campaigns would be focused on these areas, while the rest of America would be ignored.

The arrival of the Progressive State in the early 20th century, which established central banking, income taxation, and the military-industrial complex, has already put us on the road to centralization. The status quo of big government we live under benefits the few in Washington DC and politically-connected urban centers. The rest of America, however, suffers as a result.

So it’s small wonder why Donald Trump won his election when considering that he made it a point to campaign in so-called “flyover states” which have been negatively impacted by the political class’s power-grabbing schemes.

Getting rid of the Electoral College will only make matters worse and accelerate this trend toward globalism.

This is as undemocratic as it gets.

Democrats will pay lip service to the democracy, but when they obtain a result that doesn’t align with their agenda, they show their true colors as political oligarchs.

The fighter himself commented on this news, declaring “The anti communism bus tour will be arriving at a city near you #supernecessary.”

 

Masvidal, whose parents are Cuban and Peruvian, has been an outspoken Trump supporter.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.

Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.

The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.

Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.

Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
