Huffington Post carried an article entitled Scott Walker" Electoral Vote Proportional Allocation An 'Interesting' Idea"
I post the article here or below for your review. Scott Walker union busting Republican governor of Wisconsin (a blue state ordinarily) thinks it's "interesting." Well I do NOT think it is interesting . I think it is sickening. THIS IS NOT INTERESTING IT IS AN OUTRAGE NOW AS IT WILL BE IN ANY OTHER YEAR AND IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. We as progressives and others of a fair minded electorate are not lying in wait twiddling our thumbs while Republicans yet again run roughshod over us. All the money in the world will NOT buy this disgusting attempt to gain power at the expense of ethics and fair play. Moreover, it can be argued that this naked grab of power is wholly unconstitutional under the one man one vote prior Supreme Court Decisions not to mention the 1965 Voting Rights Act.
The article is saying that Republicans will rig the Electoral College by hiding changes in various bills coming out of a number of Republican controlled state houses despite the fact that Governor McConnell of Virginia says it will not happen there. One can NEVER EVER believe ANYTHING Republicans say. If one does not pay attention Republicans will by any means necessary steal elections out from under us but THIS TIME we ARE paying attention!
Wisconsin Governor Walker forgets that signatures for his removal can begin again and I do believe THIS TIME it would work. He would be removed if he dares try this. Some, even more than a few, Republicans as well on ethical principles would say no to this disgusting grab of power. Further, Republicans lost seats in the last attempt of the Democrats to regain their legislative seats in Wisconsin after the Republicans eradication of unions move. He does NOT now have the majority he would need to pass such dastardly election rigs. Who knows what will happen in another four years legislatively but Democrats should make HUGE efforts to unseat Republicans most especially in swing states and the Democratic State and National Committees should be dedicated to it. AND FURTHER KNOW THAT THEY WANT TO HIDE THIS IN VARIOUS BILLS PASSED IN STATE LEGISLATURES!
DEMOCRATS, Independents and others wedded to fair play WILL mount a HUGE challenge including through the courts by any means necessary. IF ANYTHING like this is attempted I have little doubt this would spark HUGE HUGE HUMONGOUS outrage. How many elections do these Republican mendacious slugs want to steal? IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN as it would spark an EXPLOSIVE reaction against it. Why? Because it simply is not fair. End of story!
Send this to whomever you want especially to attorneys who would fight this tooth and nail. Scream it from here to eternity to stop this egregious outrage from happening. This time we are aware and this time Republicans will NOT win by nefarious means!
WHY WE NEED TO ELECT DEMOCRATS IN STATE LEGISLATURES AS WELL AS TO NATIONAL OFFICE. IT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER BEFORE!
