Should We Abolish the EC? Trump Says Yes

Brandon Jackson
Brandon Jackson

Even Trump, after winning on the Electoral College, opposes the Electoral College.

"Well, I mean, I’m not going to change my mind just because I won. But I would rather see it, where you went with simple votes. You know, you get 100 million votes, and somebody else gets 90 million votes, and you win. There’s a reason for doing this. Because it brings all the states into play."

How's that for some fucking consistency?

Honestly, why not just have direct votes in each state?

I mean, each state is worth 1 EC if we compare it.
Win more states, win the election.

This way, California can't just dictate policies, but it's also simple for normies to understand.

The only votes that matter at all right now are votes in swing states.

And if you'd looked at the map, you'd see that the Electoral College does absolutely nothing to prevent a city-dominated election anyway. If you want to devalue cities, then you still need a new system, because the EC doesn't do what you seem to think.

Something like actually would. I don't know if that'd ever pass, but it's the kind of thing you need to support if your serious.

Maybe. People in safe blue states would also have come out more to.

Obviously, if it were a different system, candidates would campaign differently and the state-by-state totals would be different, so the one thing you definitely can't say is exactly what Clinton supporters are saying, that the percentage would be the same except Clinton would have won.

Constitutionally, states can decide their electors however they want, so it doesn't require an amendment. Only that 270 EC votes worth of states enact the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. It's already at 165 votes.

If we deport illegals and MAGA, then the overwhelming majority will be voting red well into the future. EC has its uses, but imo it exists also as a failsafe to block mass-brown people voting. If there are significantly less brown people, then the system becomes less useful. Not sure how it could be used against the right though.

A week ago (fuck it was only a week i’m literally fucking losing my mind here my memory is so bad), I remember reading about Trump’s campaign spending. Compared to the other hard blue states, there was a disproportionately large amount spent in New York, which I’m sure he did very early to see if he really COULD win there. The graph of his spending had a fall-off around the beginning of this year, which was obviously him resigning himself to the knowledge that the cunt couldn’t be beaten there.

Trump is wrong.

Unbridled democracy is literal shit-tier. The founding fathers new this. That's why the united states was created as a republic with representatives and delegates, and the electoral college is a branch of this.

The electoral college exists to prevent high-population areas from having complete tyranny of majority over the rest of the country.

The population of the state of Wyoming, the state with the least population in the united states, is about 584,000. Wyoming has 3 delegates in the electoral college, the minimum amount of delegates possible for a state.

The population of the state of California, the state with the highest population in the united states, is about 38.3 million. California has 55 delegates in the electoral college.

Were we to give each state a completely level playing field in the electoral college, it's natural that we would use our minimum delegate requirement (3) and the state with the lowest population (Wyoming) as our point of reference. Therefore, giving each state equal representation relative to their population size would give California around 200 electoral college delegates, New York 100, and Texas 138.

Obviously, the little guys would have absolutely no chance to compete were this the case.

Were we to abolish the electoral college entirely, the imbalance would be exactly the same. States like California, New York and Texas would completely dominate the election results every single time because of how hugely populated they are. There would be no reason to lobby in the less populated states because, due to the demographic imbalance, what meager support they can give is worthless compared to the giants of the big city states. Even if every single midwest state stood up in defiance, it wouldn't be enough to outcompete the cities due to their sheer numerical disadvantage. There would simply be no political or economic incentive to heed their needs and demands. They would be trapped within a system that is designed to work against their interests.

Trump won the electoral college
and trump also won the popular vote

but all this because the system is like that,
and not all people feel like their vote matters

a republican in California isnt as motivated to go out and vote as a republican in a swing state

50% of the eligible votes apparently didn't vote this election
and that's because of the system

we don't know and can't foresee what the results would be in another system

Christian Ortiz
Christian Ortiz

The electoral college gives whites an advantage. The rust belt that swung to Trump this election were predominately white states that are whiter than the national average.

Over half of the foreign born population in America lives in either California (solid blue) and Texas (solid red for now) which essentially negates the votes of half of all foreign born. The rest of the foreign born population is dispersed disproportionally in either solid blue or solid red states. The electoral impact of post 1965 immigrants is severely dampened because of the electoral college. I'm going to make a guesstimate and say due to the electoral college it's like America is 80% white instead of 60% white. That essentially makes it so that the electoral effect of diversity is cut in half.

Another thing is diversity is heavily in cities and the way congressional districts are set up in most states it means the effect of diversity on congress is minimal. And in the senate California gets the same number of senators as Wyoming.

If you want to get rid of the electoral college the non white population in the US will have full effect. Whites will be disenfranchised and we can only speculate whether that's a good or bad thing.

Let me put this in perspective for you. The hundred thousand white voters in the rust belt that tipped the states to Trump had more electoral effect than the entire population of California. The weight of each of those individual voters in the rust belt was 500 times greater than a voter in California.

Eli Ortiz

I'm still waiting for the next (((twist))) in the story. The college may still vote for Clinton in december.

Isaac Campbell

No, this was a stroke of genius. Trump spent weeks calling the Electoral College a sham, he got the entire liberal establishment rabidly calling him out for it, calling the EC system sacred, and whatever the result is, it must be accepted!

Then the usually blue states voted for Trump. Whoops! I guess they're right and they can't do anything about his win. :^)

Nicholas Hughes
Nicholas Hughes

If any of you newfag retards actually think that abolishing the electoral college would ever be a good thing, gas yourself. America is not a democracy, it is a republic. Remember that appeal to the majority is literally a logical fallacy. If the cities could completely control the rural areas, what would stop the cities from getting together and voting in pro-city, anti-rural people? If they were successful enough at siphoning off the resources in the rural areas, the rural areas would starve, and then next the cities would topple because there is no actual production left. The electoral college is meant to balance the scales of power, but still give the cities their say as well. Republics are meh, but they can work fairly effectively. Direct democracies are shit tier cancer. Also remember that the average normie is a bluepilled idiot. Average IQ = shit IQ. If you actually want a republic to function better than bare minimum, you need to severely restrict who is allowed to vote.

Go look up the population of the cities. Seriously, go compare it to the rural areas right now. If you really want government controlled by a bunch of pseudo-Marxists, the same ones who want open borders, and who are throwing a collective temper tantrum because the, fairly centerist, Donald Trump got elected, then abolish the electoral college.

Brody Howard

I don't even know what your point is ? You're calling everyone a jews so you can fit in ?

It won't get passed.
Even if it did, it wouldn't matter.

It's a good thing for him to say since lefties are still reeling over the election. He's winning over the moderates/educated and further demolishing the media. That's important to being effective and getting re-elected.

This is indeed 4d chess.

Christian Brown

Jack Phillips

I disagree with Trump but see where he is coming from. I think he is annoyed at the idea of faithless electors and so on, as well as whole states essentially being held hostage by corrupt inner city voter fraud.

Brody Jones
Brody Jones

There were at least 3 million illegal votes.
Which were counted as legit votes until after the Don won.
We all knew there were shittons of illegitimate votes being counted, there's probably far more than even the three million reported.

If hillary had won this would have been swept under and ignored, so saying "he won the popular vote if you ignore these things" doesn't matter.

The electoral college prevented these shenanigans from hillary winning.
It not only did not fail like so many are quick to think it did thanks to the popular vote vs electoral count, it explicitly did its job of not letting just a few places overwhelm every place else.

Chase Clark
Chase Clark

No electoral college would make it easier to rig too since you could just focus on one or a few counties to swing the vote of the entire country

Nicholas Morales

After Trump deports the illegals, sends nigger conscripts off to die fighting ISIS, and raises White birth rates, popular vote will be to our benefit.

Easton Peterson
Easton Peterson

Yes it does, because you're only looking at population and completely ignoring demographics.
Part of the electoral college's purpose is to maintain the integrity of population demographics when it comes to voting in the US election. Even though those eleven states are all it takes to win the presidency, they never can be. The demographics of the people in Georgia and the people in New York are too different.

The reason why states like Ohio and Florida are swing states is because their demographics tend to represent America's mainstream political alignment (and are the states that do so with the highest population). In other words, they're the "normie" demographic, the people who represent America's cultural zeitgeist at large. (Consider that Florida rarely ever votes for a losing candidate.) This is why securing them is significant: not because of population numbers, but because they are literally the physical representation of Overton's Window in America. What they vote tends to be a mirror to what America values.

Jackson Hernandez
Jackson Hernandez

No electoral college means California and NY could have 100% turn out and not a damn thing could be done about it. That's why the electoral college was created to stop high population states from running the country.

You can understand why a Democrat would want to abolish the electoral college. But a Republican that wants to abolish it or someone that supports a Republican has lost their damn mind.

The one thing i've learned this election is to trust that Trump will make the right decision at the end of the day. This may be one of his "4d chess moves". Make his supporters uneasy to find the problem and address it accordingly (IE: Mike Pence gutting lobbyists from transition team)

Also we know he was just salty about the 2012 election and making these new comments to not seem like a liar/flip flop and contradict the shit out of himself. He's going to play it cool saying he disagrees with it but nothing will change

Elijah Roberts

The blue state voters come out anyway because they had things to vote for this year. For example, in CA they were voting for weed and they were voting for senate between two Democrats, there was no incentive for Republicans to waste their time voting.

Either way, getting rid of the EC is a shit idea. This system was meant to protect entrenched landowners outside of cities, in this era that means the people who built this country and pay taxes.

Thomas Young

This. Go take a look at Minnesota's republican primary results earlier this year. Marco Rubio beat Cruz (who was the most conservative of all of the candidates) and Cruz beat Trump (who is the answer to a lot of conservative's problems that the establishment didn't give them).

I'm pretty sure it was like rifle-shooting or something like that. Of course America got first, har har har.

I'm thinking it could be this. He's sort of redpilling the left on how rigged our system is.

I could also see this. Perhaps as insurance in case the EC betrays us? I don't see why he would do this though; according to the (((official results))), Hillary won the popular vote. Trump is pretty fucking optimistic if he actually thinks he could've won the popular vote in libshitholes like California and New York, or any major city for that matter.

No, the electoral colleges look really dumb on paper but when you get down to it, they make a whole lot of sense.

I honestly thought the same thing as many of you, they are stupid and outdated, until i realized this.

This year, cali had about 5 million votes for the democratic party, thats about the entire population of utah and Nevada combined, not even voting age, just pure straight population. So what happens then, is less then half of a state, has more say then 3 states combined. I dont know about you all but i know i think a hell of a lot differently then cali so i would like my opinion to matter.

Also, all the states save for 2, operate off a winner take all system, meaning if you win the popular vote in the state, you win the electoral votes in that state as well.

Its better to think of the election not as a popular vote of the nation, but the popular vote of each state, and who ever gets the most wins on the state popular votes win.

Else, NY, LA, Huston, and miami would be the cities that would decide the election each year, and well, im not a libral faggot so.

Well, I mean, I’m not going to change my mind just because I won. But I would rather see it, where you went with simple votes.

I'd rather see us switch to congressional districts, since a pure popular vote is super easy to rig and allows states like Commiefornia to control elections.. and Commiefornia could do it because they are so focused on indoctrinating their children.

Either way, I can respect his integrity on the matter, but politics is a complex beast. The winner of the vote can't just be more popular or have more support. It needs to be about widespread support across as many different states, counties, districts, and areas.

Democrat run cities and states think they know best for the world, but when you look at them closely, you find that they are hellholes. Corrupt, crumbling piles of shit overrun with death and drugs with imploding economies and degenerate politicians abusing their citizens for a quick buck.

Those places do not represent America or hold its best interest at heart, but they have the power to entirely control elections in a straight popular vote system. At least with congressional districts, the red parts of blue states could keep the corrupt parts from controlling things.

Good system. What reason would a state have to be part of USA if it can't have any decision power?

Austin Perez
Austin Perez

The Modern USA is home to 3 powerful States as per this definition:

The Democratic State. It commands the most destructive weapons of these 3 States. It employs people from all around the region it governs. It provides protection services and demands obedience in return. It uses a democratic process to periodically select its leadership, and everyone else tries to control this State by having its personnel elected. Gridlocks are common. The Democratic State also doesn’t believe other States are possible or do not know how to deal with them.
The Intolerant Leftist State centered around university towns, cities in general and California. It is comprised of non-Caucasoid peoples, people who have alternative sexual lifestyles and feminists. Of these, the black liberation movements hold the most promise for actually conducting violence when it comes to killing another group of people. Hence, The Intolerant Left will eventually be led by Black people, and if they are smart they will use the other non-Caucasoids, feminists, and people alternate sexual lifestyles for boosting their legitimacy. They coordinate using universities and NGOs funded by billionaires. This State owns all modes of persuasion like the media and entertainment. They are internationalist by nature and can persuade even other States to do their bidding.
The Leaderless Traditionalist State centered around rural or sub-urban areas and Texas. They are gun owners and believe in traditional values like racially and religiously defined State. They coordinate over the Internet because they are not allowed to hold meetings outside. They are leaderless because their leaders are ostracized or attacked or murdered for trying to lead.

Real talk
This is quite possibly the stupidest thing I've ever heard Trump say - consistently stupid, perhaps, but still incredibly stupid.

We do not live in a democracy, we live in a Republic - and for good reason: democracy is shit.
Doubly so in a scenario wherein Federal election have no Federal mandate to prove citizenship. You can't have fucking California allowing illegals to get a driver's license without proving citizenship, auto-registering to vote anyone who gets a driver's license, allow people to vote in Federal elections without any proof of ID, and then talk about 'democracy' as though it fucking means anything.

The popular vote is completely meaningless, and should be, if this is the broken mechanism we intend to continue employing, short of INTENSE and total-coverage alteration to the voter-ID/registration laws - I got no problem abolishing the electoral college if, say, only White male citizen property owners can vote, but that's not where we stand.

Nobody would be making a fucking peep about the electoral college if Clinton had won it.

You don't know a damn thing you rural idealist hack. The only reason cities are weak and soft is because kikes have completely concentrated as part of a top down approach to undermining the country.

What happened next caught just about everyone by surprise. The construction workers were unexpectedly joined by white collar workers from the New York Stock Exchange, many of them were also military veterans. The NYSE reportedly emptied as stock brokers, analysts and even office administrative workers took to the streets and fought shoulder-to-shoulder along side the Hard Hats as they took on those who reveled in desecrating the American flag.”

Trump has a habit of speaking without thinking when he's caught with questions he hasn't thought about too hard. Remember when Chris Matthews asked him about stopping abortion, and Trump replied that the mothers would have to be punished? He will talk with his advisors and experts, come to understand the purpose of the EC, and either move on to more important issues, or approach a way to improve it without just making it a literal popularity contest so that everyone is happy.

I'm no expert on the subject but I think is a valid approach

How could a city produce anything but pampered cityboys like you? You live in luxury, completely dependent on outside sources to feed you (grocery stores and tap water) and police to protect you. You have no connection to nature and you come into contact with more people daily than is healthy for the human mind, forcing you to become hostile towards your fellow man.

Face it - cities are not a good place for healthy minds.

The overwhelming majority of counties in the US are red. I'm not saying that the idea is a bad one, but there would need to be a compromise between county and state EVs. Perhaps giving each state electoral votes dependent on their percentage of population within the United States (as discussed here ) and then awarding each county one electoral vote as well. There's really no reasonable or fair way to run a vote though. The best way to manage a democracy (or republic) is to limit suffrage.

I don't think we should abolish the EC entirely. It does serve an important function. It should also be noted that ONLY the President and Vice President are chosen by the EC. Your Congressman, Governor, Sheriff, Mayor, and whatever are still chosen by popular vote.

However, the reason there's an amendment clause in the US Constitution is because the framers of the document were smart enough to know that times change and that the Constitution was never meant to be carved in stone. We can reform the Electorate without abolishing it. I see no reason why we the people can't figure out a way to modernize the EC so that it fits well with the current Republic.

In order for that to be true, you have to prove illegals voted. Not to mention how they managed to vote without so much as a Social Security number (which is put on the voter registration application) or any form of voter registration.

Even in California if you walk into a voting place without any form of identifying information, you are handed a "provisional ballot". If you don't come back to the voter registrar with the pertinent information, your vote gets tossed out. So, any illegals who went to vote were given a provisional ballot and required to return within a certain amount of time with proper identifying information. If illegals did vote, their votes were tossed out.

No, there really isn't. When you keep your head up your ass long enough, you start to hallucinate from the shit fumes. I suggest you pull out while you still can.

Demographically fucked. If we could cleanse the non-white and faggot filth out of the city, it would be a pretty nice place, since it still has functioning infrastructure and buildings.

Detroit

Same demographic problem, but with the added bonus of resembling a post-apocalyptic bombed-out hellscape from a dystopian cyberpunk novel. Both would have to be purged of all subhumans, but NYC actually has buildings and infrastructure headstart, so I would imagine it has a better chance. Problem is, Detroit has a history of heavy industry and I don't see modern NYC having the ability to open gigantic plants to actually build shit again.

Fact of the matter comes down to this: As of this moment (of this post) Hillary Clinton has the popular vote by ~700,000. It doesn't make a damn bit of difference, however, because popular vote doesn't determine the President. In order for the EC vote to be swayed to Clinton's side on 12/19, there would have to be ~30 "faithless electors".

That's not going to happen. 1 or 2 maybe, but 30? No. Even trying to sway the Electorate is a joke, so you can all stop worrying about those 700,000 some-odd votes Clinton has over Trump at this point. I'm sorry Trump didn't have a landslide historical victory with 100% of the vote, but that virtually never happens either.

Besides, it's not like it's the first time the candidate with the popular vote didn't win the Electorate. The country someone manages to go on.

Which will no doubt prove quite difficult, given the places illegals were most-likely to vote are also the places most-likely to attempt to conceal such - even so, several fraud analysis organizations have noted the presence of millions of illegal votes.

Not to mention how they managed to vote without so much as a Social Security number (which is put on the voter registration application) or any form of voter registration.
Under California law, you are auto-registered to vote upon acquiring a driver's license, and you do not have to prove citizenship to acquire a driver's license in California, nor does California have voter-ID laws, soooooooo…
dailycaller .com/2015/10/13/napolitano-california-to-allow-illegal-immigrants-to-vote-for-the-next-president-video/
… That's how they managed to vote, by the millions, and that's just one example.

Even in California if you walk into a voting place without any form of identifying information, you are handed a "provisional ballot".
Bullshit - California has no voter-ID laws, thus they cannot exclude your ballot on the basis of lacking identification.

sos.ca.gov/elections/voting-resources/provisional-voting/
What Is a Provisional Ballot?
A provisional ballot is a regular ballot that is placed in a special envelope prior to being put in the ballot box.

Who Casts a Provisional Ballot?
Provisional ballots are ballots cast by voters who:
•Believe they are registered to vote even though their names are not on the official voter registration list at the polling place.
Not an issue in California, as the names of these individuals ARE on the official voter registration list.
•Vote by mail but did not receive their ballot or do not have their ballot with them, and instead want to vote at a polling place.
Not relevant here.

See also:
The most common circumstances when an elections official will ask a voter to cast a provisional ballot are:
First-time voters. Under federal law, a person who is voting for the first time in a federal election is required to provide proof of identification, even if their name is on the polling place roster. If the voter cannot provide proof of identification, the voter will be asked to cast a provisional ballot. The elections official will verify the voter's eligibility by comparing their signature on the provisional ballot envelope with the signature on their voter registration form and if the signatures match, then the ballot will be counted. (Elections Code sections 14310(c), 15350, and 3019.)
As they have a driver's license from the state of California, that won't be an issue, meaning no provisional ballot.

IOW:
You're fulla shit cunt.

The video claims 3 million illegals voted and shows some buses and some people who "might" look alike. I'm not convinced.

People get bused to voting polls all the time and there are many people who offer such services to the elderly and people who can't or don't drive. Nobody is on that bus telling them how to vote - because that's actually illegal.

The only arrest made in this entire election for voter fraud was a Trump supporter in Iowa who voted twice. I'm guessing that's all part of the conspiracy, though, right?

Hah! What a bald-faced lie. No. No, you do not need to provide ID at the polling place. The Dems have fought like tigers to make sure you don't, because they know what side their bread is buttered on.

votesmart.org/elections/voter-registration/CA#.WCypb7IrLIU
ID Requirements: In most cases, California voters are not required to show identification before they cast ballots. However, if you are voting for the first time after registering by mail and did not provide your driver license number, California identification number or the last four digits of your social security number on your registration form, you may be asked to show a form of identification when you go to the polls

Your ID is supposed to be verified when you register, but if it's not, you MAY be asked for it at the polling place (hint: they're not going to ask if you look like you'll vote for the right candidate). They absolutely can't ask for ID otherwise, because that would be raciss.

As of this moment (of this post) Hillary Clinton has the popular vote by ~700,000.
Fact of the matter

But that's not the fact of the matter.

infowars.com/report-three-million-votes-in-presidential-election-cast-by-illegal-aliens/
The FACT of the matter is that Hillary Clinton leads cited tallies by several million votes contributed via voter fraud on behalf of criminal invaders, with very few of those doing the citing making notation of this factor - which means, in a factual sense, Hillary Clinton is trailing by more than a million votes.

A dubious claim, but irrelevant all the same, given King Nigger was handing out SSNs.

washingtontimes. com/news/2015/feb/12/obama-amnesty-creates-loophole-for-illegal-immigra/
President Obama’s temporary deportation amnesty will make it easier for illegal immigrants to improperly register and vote in elections, state elections officials testified to Congress on Thursday, saying that the driver’s licenses and Social Security numbers they will be granted create a major voting loophole.
While stressing that it remains illegal for noncitizens to vote, secretaries of state from Ohio and Kansas said they won’t have the tools to sniff out illegal immigrants who register anyway, ignoring stiff penalties to fill out the registration forms that are easily available at shopping malls, motor vehicle bureaus and in curbside registration drives.
Anyone registering to vote attests that he or she is a citizen, but Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted said mass registration drives often aren’t able to give due attention to that part, and so illegal immigrants will still get through.
Which of course drew the typical and immediate reply of 'muh voter suppression'.

Point is: Large numbers of illegals UNDOUBTEDLY voted in this election - meaning, in terms of fact, Hillary Clinton is still losing, because illegals are not factually citizens, thus their votes do not factually matter.

Looking at your "EC map by county" compared to the state one for this year I don't think you burgers should erase the EC.

That way an entire states fate doesn't hinge on a few population dense counties.

Keep the electoral college, but take away the winner-take-all electoral votes.

If a state has, say, 8 electoral votes, and you win more than 6/8% but less than 7/8% of its' popular vote, you get 6 electoral votes.

If anyone fails to get that final 1/8% threshold, then the popular vote winner takes the final 1/8%. So add an extra 1 vote to that 8-state winner's amount.

Angel Mitchell

The tweet is from 2012. The post-election interview where he re-affirms his position was after the election.

That is what some people seem to think that it does but there's two problems: political division are now sharper between urban/rural than between different states, and when you remember that when the EC has matched the popular vote 90+% of the time anyway, it should be obvious that if that's what it's supposed to do, it's failing anyway.

Elijah Cooper
Elijah Cooper

In my example, Louisiana (8 electoral votes) Donald Trump got 58.1% and Hillary Clinton got 38.4%. That was good enough to win 4 votes outright for Trump and 3 for Hillary. Since no candidate had an 1/8% threshold (non-Trump/Hillary votes in Louisiana was 3.5%) then Trump, as the popular winner, gets the last vote. 5 Trump, 3 Hillary.

That's a start, but it still keeps one of the main problems of the EC: that minority votes in a state don't count for anything.

People keep talking about "muh big cities" ignoring that the EC makes all of the red counties in update New York and California completely worthless. And it's even worse than it seems, because you know that way more Republican voters would bother to come out to vote if they didn't already know that they might as well just write "TRUMP" on a piece of toilet paper and flush it for all the good it would do.

If we did it by counties, it would be better to dispose of states entirely and just count by counties.

Of course, now the cities wouldn't count for anything, and since they have the most people and pay the bills, it wouldn't last.

What about if the electors were awarded proportionally like in Maine? Would that still work, or would it just end up being identical to direct popular vote?

Maine and Nebraska both use an alternative method of distributing their electoral votes, called the Congressional District Method. Currently, these two states are the only two in the union that diverge from the traditional winner-take-all method of electoral vote allocation.
With the district method, a state divides itself into a number of districts, allocating one of its state-wide electoral votes to each district. The winner of each district is awarded that district’s electoral vote, and the winner of the state-wide vote is then awarded the state’s remaining two electoral votes.

archive.fairvote.org/e_college/reform.htm

To be fair there are a number of different methods that sound better but in practice would probably diverge. At the end of the day, the Wall, Jobs, and Security must come before we deal with the particularities of our system.

Give cities extra poins then based on what they do for the country. That's why California has so many votes, right? So the average county should have like 1 point, and a city like Jew York should have something like 20.

Socialism in any form is cancer. Fascism will eventually lead to tyranny as there is no dissenting voice to keep the ruling party in check. Universal suffrage democracy leads to degeneracy and minorities holding too much sway over the majority.

Leo Thomas

Starship troopers model of a constitutional republic works also, only people who contribute to a republic should have any influence, and their should be a nonegalitarian tiered system in which factors like military experience, occupation, taxes paid, hours of community service, etc. should determine how many votes you get. A veteran with 10,000 hours of community service, no criminal record, in a highly skilled occupation who pays a lot of taxes would have like 10 votes while Jamal would have zero since living on welfare and ruining neighborhoods contributes nothing to society, and average people would have 1-3 depending on how much work they put into things that Make America Great Again. The number of votes you earn would also open doors to government positions like being a delegate, working as a legislator, etc. A tiered republican government would be ideal as long as the ranking/voting system is fair. I know it is not popular to say so here but Fascist government only works if you luck out and get a benevolent leader like Hitler, and people like him are one in a million, otherwise it turns into tyranny very quickly. Democracy is shit for obvious reasons also.

Remember cuckchanners and newfags from reddit are mostly degenerates who think we are edgy and trendy , they think we won because we were funny where in reallity we won because we were right and uphdolded the truth over all, upholding the truth above all guide us to the the values we share and used to share in this board.

You just need to see the demographics , the honest and hard working people that decided it was enough sealde the kikes fate.

Order , tradition , discipline , loyalty and care for our family managed to get Trump to the white house.

Precisely this. There needs to be checks and balances within the system or tyranny will eventually follow. Imagine what would have happened had it been Churchill instead of Mussolini. Rome wouldn't have fared nearly so well.

Any form of government, but especially an autocracy is only as good as the person in charge. Without means to remove and replace that person, the whole system eventually falls into tyranny.

Meanwhile, there's a real life example of what I propose, and it's been a stable organization for close to 2000 years, and at one point was the most powerful organization in the world - the Roman Catholic church. You have the congregation who has little or no say in the running of the church, then you have the patriarch, bishops, archbishops, and eventually the pope, all of which are volunteers from the congregation who enter into church service. All of these have some power, but in varying degrees. Once a pope is selected, he leads the church for life, but can be removed if he is not following the best interests of the church (it has happened on a few occasions).

Like I said, it's a system that's worked for nearly 2000 years (and may actually be the oldest functioning government on the planet when you consider it in the context that it is a government), and has had very few hiccups during that time span - mostly arising due to over-expansion or conflicts with regional rulers. If you strip out the religious aspects, and replace them with fascist ideologies (nationalism, homogeneity, traditionalism), you set up a form of government proven to stand the test of time, and combine it with ideas proven to stand the test of time. The final government that is created should be able to endure and serve its population indefinitely.

Church is corrupt as shit.
Paedophiles and neoreactionaries unite to defend it.
I think I prefer the globalists to you.

Are you out of your mind? Most child abuse cases in the Church were fabricated by the liberal media to discredit it.

The church has stood for two millennia and is just now starting to fall apart because they're buying into the globalist rag, and even in their decline, they're still one of the most powerful organizations on the planet. For its age, corruption is relatively low, as well.

Like I said, replace the religious agenda with a fascist one and you have a strong, lasting system of government.

If you want to see the fate of any long-term fascist government, look at literally any other autocratic government in the history of forever - they all turn corrupt eventually.

Nothing is going to change. Trump is just saying "I'd abolish it" because he CAN take that position knowing it will NEVER come to fruition. He can be on the same side of the issue as the protestors knowing it's impossible to ever happen.

It would take a constitutional amendment to abolish the EC and there is no way in hell that 3/4 of the states are going to sign on to that. 38 of 50 States would have to vote to overturn it. Highly unlikely as AT LEAST 38 of them benefit greatly from the EC.
