Open Letter to Hillary’s Army

by

Dear Hillary Revolutionaries,

I have heard a lot of you over the last couple of days calling for a revolution.  You wanted Hillary to win and are angry that she didn’t.  Many of you blame the electoral college, which you accuse of handing the presidency over to Trump.  You are actually petitioning the electoral college to go against the will of the voters they represent and vote for Hillary.

Let me explain why the electoral college exists.  The each of the 538 votes of the electoral college represents one Congressman, one Senator, and three votes for DC.  The idea of the electoral college is the same as the Congress, to provide balance between equal representation of the population (the House of Representatives) and equal representation of the states (the Senate).  Why is this important?  If we didn’t have something to balance the interests of the population against the interests of the states, 146 of over 3,000 counties would pick the president.  By area, only 3.5% of the acreage of US would choose the president.

Look at the map below.

South Dakota, North Dakota, Iowa, Wyoming, Montana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Virginia, West Virginia, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, every state without a blue spot would have no say in the president.  The president would not be the president of the US, the president would be the president of Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Boston, Chicago, Miami-Broward-West Palm, Austin, Houston, and Seattle.

Not just do you show us contempt by calling us rednecks and flyover country, but now you want to undermine our very representation in this nation.  Since we don’t want to give that up, you say we’re going to have to die.

Let’s be clear about this.  Your revolution will be over before it begins.

Sure, we have the most guns.  So what.

An army marches on its stomach.  Look at that map above.  Your food is grown in the gray areas.  Oil is drilled and refined into gas in the gray areas.  Coal and ore is mined, and the ore smelted into usable alloys in the gray areas   The factories that turn that metal into goods are in the gray areas.

You want a revolution against us country bumpkin, knuckle dragging, rubes?  We will shut off your power, shut off your food, shut off access to anything that can’t come in to ports of LA, NYC, or Miami.  How long do you think your banking and service industry economies will keep going before you starve?

You hate us but you depend on us.  Don’t ever forget that.

You wan’t a revolution?  You want to cut us out of a representative government?  I want to see what happens to all you soy milk latte loving liberals when the soybean farmers of Indiana and Iowa decided to stop selling their crop to Starbucks.

Keep that in mind.

  1. I said much the same four yeas ago…

  2. Let’s not forget that the Electoral College was *designed* so that a popular vote wouldn’t guarantee a presidential vote. The Framers weren’t idiots, they knew exactly what they were doing. When a candidate wins the popular vote but loses the presidency? That’s the Electoral College WORKING AS INTENDED, not failing.

  3. The founders were clear that they didn’t want a democracy, because true majority-rule democracies self destruct fairly quickly. The system of checks and balances we have was very carefully designed.

  4. To The Framers, the idea behind the Electoral College was that the candidates would have to make their case to the whole country and not just loiter around a few big cities promising free cookies.
    To the Left, the entire POINT is to ignore the rest of the country and only have to sell a few big cities by promising free cookies. Actually having to travel out into Flyover Country and meet those squinty-eyed peasants, much less court them for their votes, is an insult.

  5. Because most Americans were uneducated and removed from current events.

    In the Federalist Papers, Alexander Hamilton wrote: “A small number of persons, selected by their fellow citizens from the general mass, will be most likely to possess the information and discernment requisite to such complicated investigations.”

    from CNN

    And this election is a perfect example of why it was created!
