How Democrats Elected President Trump – You Didn’t Know?

We the People did not elect businessman Donald Trump president. At least, not directly. Do I have your attention?

Trump — and the Republican party — owe the presidency to millions of whites who have largely voted Democratic for years.

Let’s look back in our nation’s history, those formative years when thirteen states united as a republic. What is a state? Texas comes to mind. Fifty such states comprise our nation. (No, territories and commonwealths and districts are not states.)

Fifteen British colonies became free and independent states the moment the Declaration of Independence was unanimously ratified.

Few Americans reside in U.S. territories and commonwealths and districts. Practically all of us live in one of the fifty states.

Back to the formative years.

Following a successful campaign to win independence from Great Britain, those original thirteen states attempted to function as a unit with respect to national defense through a pact that formed a confederacy. For various reasons, the definition of a confederacyConfederacy was an unsuccessful governmental model, chiefly two: common defense and economics.

Thus it was the founders united in the same Independence Hall where the Declaration of Independence was drafted and signed on July 4, 1776, for the purpose of improving the Confederacy. However, none of the weeks of proposed improvements to the Confederacy were acceptable to all the states. It was at that crucial moment in history that the least religious founding father changed the course of American history by calling the state delegates to prayer and Bible study.

Those thirteen states created the framework of government called The United States of America.

I repeat: the States created the Federal Government.

On the matter of elections to federal office, We the People elect Representatives based on population. More populous states have more representatives in the House than less populous states.

The Constitution provides representation by population and by statehood. Each state has two U.S. Senators. Some have two Senators and only one Representative (MT, ND, SD, WY).

Our Founding Fathers intended the House to represent the people and the Senate to represent the States.

The Electoral College, representing the respective states, cast 340 votes for businessman Donald Trump; 270 was the winning point. 29 states elected Mr. Trump.

Mr. Trump’s win can be attributed to Democrat voters who became fed up with corrupt socialist policies that were, and still are, crippling our country.

Bottom line: The states elect the president

The popular vote in any given state affects the number of delegates to the Electoral College and it is the votes by the Electoral College delegates that choose our president.

No, the Russians did not mark your ballots. Voters in 3,142 counties cast ballots and, to my knowledge, none of those voters were Russian citizens.

Franklin’s Appeal for Prayer at the Constitutional Convention of 1787

 

Mr. President,

The small progress we have made after 4 or five weeks close attendance & continual reasonings with each other,”our different sentiments on almost every question, several of the last producing as many noes and ays, is methinks a melancholy proof of the imperfection of the Human Understanding. We indeed seem to feel our own want ofIndependence_Hall_Detail_1752 political wisdom, some we have been running about in search of it. We have gone back to ancient history for models of Government and examined the different forms of those Republics which having been formed with the seeds of their own dissolution now no longer exist. And we have viewed Modern States all round Europe, but find none of their Constitutions suitable to our circumstances.

In this situation of this Assembly, groping as it were in the dark to find political truth, and scarce able to distinguish it when presented to us, how has it happened, Sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of lights to illuminate our understandings? In the beginning of the Contest with G. Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the divine protection. ”Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a Superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence, we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth- that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings, that “except the Lord build the House they labour in vain that build it.” I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall become a reproach and bye word down to future ages. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter from this unfortunate instance, [the] despair of establishing Governments be Human Wisdom and leave it to chance, war and conquest.

I, therefore, beg leave to move, that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations, be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to business, and that one or more of the Clergy of the City be requested to officiate in that service.
