Replace the Electoral College with Popular Plus Half County

If the Dems writhe in agony over the Electoral College, just wait until they get a load of what I just proposed to my Congressional Representative for consideration by our predominantly Republican Congress!
 
Instead of an electoral college, I propose we shift to a mix of the popular vote combined with county representation, with each county having a proportionate share, not of the popular vote, but of the population of American Citizens.
 
Here’s how this would work:
 
There are 3,007 counties in the U.S. The United States is estimated to have a population of 327,589,916 as of April 23, 2018, making it the third most populous country in the world (1). That’s 108,942 votes per county, so half that comes to 54,471 votes.
 
In addition to however many popular votes are given directly to the candidates, whatever candidate a county’s popular votes favor would also receive an additional 54,471 votes.
 
I call it Popular plus Half County, but you can call it Half-Baked, if you’d like.
 
The primary benefit is that it would greatly encourage people to get out and vote in order to minimize the effect of the county votes.
 
The secondary benefit is that like the Electoral College, it would wrest control of our nation from the largely homogeneous but largely ignorant people congregating in mega-cities like Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York, people who usually decide issues based on what they can get out of it instead of what’s good for the nation as a whole. Only more so. In fact, it would largely undermine their vote. The Demoncrap vote. The liberal vote. The ignorant vote.
 
It’s actually a litmus test. You see, if a Democrat or liberal reads this, their heads have probably exploded by now. If they haven’t, and they’ve read this far, then perhaps there’s hope for them, yet.

Who is Best at Running a Country? Patriots and Businessmen vs Lawyers and Career Politicians

When it comes to running a country well, you need two things:

Patriots:  These people have their priorities in order:  God, Country, and Family.  They also aren’t afraid to back down from a running the countryfight.  In fact, if you attack one or more of their priorities, a fight is exactly what you’ll get.  Unlike Demoncraps and Libturds (Democrats and Liberals), Patriots will not compromise on essential principles, nor are they in the game just for themselves.

Without Patriots, the United States of America would never have been created, nor would we have survived, much less thrived as a country.

Businessmen:  These folks understand the hard, cold realities of business, where companies don’t have the luxury of raising prices running the countrywithout competition (i.e. raising taxes) every time they need to cover their ineptitude.  Instead, they learn, often the hard way, to get it right.  In big business, you don’t just balance budgets. You’re always looking for ways to do things better, smarter, and cheaper, because that’s what it takes to stay in business and remain competitive with the ever-innovative competition.

Trump’s advantage over Hillary is two-fold:  First, he’s a LOT smarter than Obama, whereas Hillary is probably on par with Valerie JarrettObama.  Valerie Jarrett is just plain wrong on that point.  Obama is an idealistic imbecile.  The fact that Jarrett sees him as “brilliant” doesn’t say much about Jarrett.  Do we really need four years of the same?  Should we risk eight?  Yeah, I don’t think so!

Second, when Patriots and Businessmen run our country, we thrive. We prosper.  When Lawyers and Career Politicians run our country, they run it into the ground because they haven’t the slightest clue as to how to run a country.

running the country

Have you ever examined what’s on the curricula of most political science degrees?  This is the most common degree obtained by both lawyers and politicians before going to law school or entering politics.  It’s ridiculous!  It’s all but totally void of common business functions such economics, accounting, and finance, much less any technological aspect such as math, physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering.

Lacking the proper education, most lawyers and career politicians are clueless.  They know how to write law, but they don’t know running the countrywhat laws should be written.  They know how to politic their way up through the political system, but when it comes to making decisions that actually benefit society, they are literally without a clue, and are often driven by the ridiculous liberal propaganda, which is little more than a retread of the Communist Manifesto, itself craft by a blithering idiot and ignorant idealist named Marx who never once found any modicum of success in his own life.

That’s a valid source for how to run a country?  I think not!  Any historian could tell you that!

Sadly, not only do we have such lawyers and career politicians embedded throughout our government, but we also have far to running the countrymany ignorant voters who simply never learned why such policies are bad, no matter how good they sound.  As a result, these voters keep reelecting the blithering idiots back into office.

That’s no way to run a country, people.  Come on – wise up!
