“On January 21st of 2017, the day after I take the oath of office, Americans will finally wake up in a country where the laws of the United States are enforced. We are going to be considerate and compassionate to everyone. But my greatest compassion will be for our own struggling citizens.” — Donald Trump
Obama is the “most loquacious” president ever, George Will said on Fox News on Monday. Will then challenged guests Mercedes Schlapp and Charles Lane to recall something memorable the president had said. Nothing emerged… (How the outgoing president has made our holidays hazardous)
It won’t be long now. And for most people (I speak now of those unrepentant gun-totin’ clingers who live happily in places other than America’s urban Democrat dystopias), January 20th, 2017 can’t come quick enough. It’s the end of an error, alright, the official last day of the worst president in the history of the Republic. Bye-bye Harrison Bounel (a.k.a. Barry Soetoro and Barack Obama). Hello, Donald J. Trump. A.K.A. Donald J. Trump. And for the lefties that remain camped on the banks of that famous Egyptian river (you know — De-Nial), snarling endlessly about how Hillary won the popular vote, here’s a newsflash: America ain’t California or New York. Without those two bastions of homegrown Marxist mendacity, Trump’s up by 3 million. But, presidentially speaking, America ain’t a democracy in which the magic number is always 51 percent. We’re a constitutional republic wherein the institution of the Electoral College ensures that every state has a voice in choosing whom they want to lead the union. Which is exactly why the Left wants to jettison it.
According to ABC News:
In states including Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New Mexico, legislators have said they plan to introduce legislation that would require their state’s Electoral College voters cast ballots for the presidential candidate who earns the most votes nationwide, regardless of the statewide results.
Since 2006, 11 states have signed onto the compact, which require their Electoral College voters to cast ballots for the national popular vote winner. In theory it would take effect once it involves states representing at least 270 electoral votes, the threshold to win the presidency.

This, of course, is a movement that will last only until such time as a Democrat loses the popular vote. Which may happen sooner than later assuming that President Trump deports all the illegals who voted for Hillary.
