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.
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!
