Five times the Electoral College has served the nation

Sedona AZ – The following is a letter to the SedonaEye.com editor:


The United States has justifiably been compared to the old Roman Empire, with both contempt and admiration. The rise and fall of Rome has some staggering similarities and I’d like to point to a few of these:

  • The invitation and training of sworn enemies into the Military and Political strategies
  • The making EXCEPTIONS TO THE LAWS to appease the Lawless
  • Allowing unrestricted, preferential Trade agreements to satisfy Enemies at the expense of Allies
  • Ignoring Nepotism and being considered “Too Big To Fail”.

Rome invited-in, educated and trained Attila’s henchmen, who used their own tactics against them; like it or not, Attila played a major role in the fall of Rome.

The legal ‘Exceptions’ made by Rome is rather vague because like the United States today, the Laws are simply not being enforced. Unenforced or unenforceable laws / rules breed disrespect and contempt for the Law Rule-Making Body.

The Preferential Trade agreements made with China (a sworn enemy) at the expense of Taiwan (a Free Trade Ally and the Only Free Republic in Asia) was and is outrageous, preposterous, and stupid. From the most-favored Trade relations to the ​placating of China about the Taiwan name, an “Enemy To The United States” has advantages over “A Friend!” Our Political Hierarchy will stab a friend in the back for an enemies dollars; often or generally paid under the table to career Politicians and / or their Family (as in Biden and or Clinton) or “Affiliates” (as Corporate Co-conspirators).

Ignoring nepotism is suicidal for a government and thinking any entity is “Too Big To Fail” fits in right beside it. Even Almighty God could and would fail if he made Exceptions!

And the United States will fail very shortly if we destroy the Electoral College, which would trigger the Socialistic Totalitarianism of The New World Order.

    Yes in the modern days its only 2…

    Its given us GW Bush, and Trump….

    So as usual Mr. Gohr just leaves out the most important 2….And look where they have gotten us?

    Have to admit ol GW gave us a war and he is still giving it….18 years, what a quagmire it is…..and only cost a few trillion dollars!

    Yep Dale, you never cease to amaze me with your ignorance! but your consistent!

    You’ve missed the point in your political tunnel. It gave us John Quincy Adams and his Presidency gave us abolition. He wasn’t popular either.

    Mark Kelly is a good old white boy from Jersey trying to take down a woman whose reputation and background is better. Why? Because Mark is only running because his wife can’t – and he didn’t earn that seat, she did. Why does Mark Kelly think he deserves that seat? Go back east and leave the west to do it best. Martha McSally has proven herself. She deserves Arizonans support.

  4. Facebook Works to Debunk False Stories says:


    Facebook is working with FactCheck.orgFactCheck.orgFactCheck.org and other factchecker websites to debunk false headlines. One circulating now on various websites that includes Facebook is a false claim that the Trumps Took Seats of Disabled at U.N. or other variations of that false headline. Facebook is working to counter false social media shares as Congress continues to decide on whether oversight or regulations will be required.

    Here’s a recent example and FB readers can repost this message in full to help raise the consciousness of all social media networks:

    319 Square Miles – It will take you approximately 39 seconds to read this email.

    Last month the newly convened, Democratic-controlled House of Representatives introduced a bill to eliminate the electoral college. It seems that, since they couldn’t win the last presidential election under the rules that have existed for almost 250 years, they want to change the rules.

    Below is an excellent explanation of why this is a very bad idea.

    In their infinite wisdom, the United States’ Founders created the Electoral College to ensure the States were fairly represented. Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the nation?

    The following list of statistics has been making the rounds on the Internet. It should finally put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense. Do share this. It needs to be widely known and understood.

    There are 3,141 counties in the United States.
    – Trump won 3,084 of them.
    – Clinton won 57.

    There are 62 counties in New York State.
    – Trump won 46 of them.
    – Clinton won 16.

    Clinton won the popular vote by approximately 1.5 million votes.

    – In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond)

    – Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country. These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.

    The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.

    When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.

    Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.) DO NOT and SHOULD NOT speak for the rest of our country!

    And it’s been verified and documented that those 319 square miles are where the majority of our nation’s problems foment.

    Well worth the 39 seconds to read? Now please pass it on!

    Ann Kirkpatrick let AZ Democrats down. We didn’t vote for her to get back into office and my memory isn’t short term challenged and neither are my other Democrat friends. NO I won’t and we won’t vote for you or give you money. Stop asking.

    @Lrihendry · Nov 13
    I wore my MAGA hat to the grocery store today and someone stopped and asked me, are you happy with a criminal president? I said, absolutely not! That’s why we replaced him with Donald Trump!
