Mike: I’m going to go out on a limb here and reduce my 48 state to 2, largely as a result of the media pile-on and of just how deeply rooted Mammon, Satan, Lucifer, Beelzebub, etc. have their tentacles wrapped around the brains of the American shersons out there. I’m going to lower my 48–2 to 33–16–1, with Bernie Sanders carrying Vermont as a write-in candidate. There you go, 33-16-1.
As Patrick J. Buchanan points out today, Donald Trump has already won whether he wins or not. This is at The Imaginative Conservative website, “Donald Trump Has Already Won.” I think that Buchanan is seeing the same things that I am seeing, and that is you’re not putting this genie back in the bottle.
There’s another part about this I want to talk about. How many of you were around on April 15, 2009? How many of you remember the Tea Party revolts, riots, protests, rallies on tax day 2009? There were hundreds of thousands of pictures taken at all these rallies. I have them on one of my little hard drives over there. Millions upon millions of people turned out to protest what?
Porculus succubus stimulus, the $1 trillion stimulus package, the insistence that Obama and the Pelosi Congress were going to ram through some kind of Obamacare, the insistence on the Obama administration and Pelosi Congress that they were going to bailout the major automobile manufacturers. This is what turned all these people out to say they had had enough.
There’s one thing that was missing from the Tea Party protests and rallies and the subsequent Tea Party Movement, if you will. It made a deal with the devil. It made a deal with the Republican Congress, or Republicans who were going to run for Congress, and said – the crooked members of Congress, and they were crooked. Kristi Noem, totally corrupt. Steve King, corrupt. I asked Steve King, I asked him personally in 2010, on this show – I like King. He’s a good guy. He’s not a conservative. He’s in on the fix as the rest of them are. I asked him: Why are you voting for, promoting, you and Ms. Noem, why are you voting and promoting $1 trillion ag bills and going along with the Democrats in doing this? Of course, they went and did it anyway when they had control of the House in 2014.
It was $964 billion in agriculture subsidies. This is part of the $4 trillion all-you-can-eat federal buffet that you and I get to pay for every year. I asked him: Why? He said: Well, there’s a lot more at stake here than smarmy, snickety little people like you on the radio in Louisiana can possibly understand. I said: Congressman, even if you think that subsidy is a good idea, why should I have to pay for it? If you want to subsidize corn farmers and wheat farmers in Iowa, go ahead. Use your money. Don’t use mine. I’ll tell you what. I’ll make you a deal. If we’re stupid enough to subsidize, bailout sugarcane farmers here in Louisiana because they stink at making a profit off their crop, then that ought to be our business.
Folks, this was the result of the Tea Party. In other words, the Tea Party got burned. It got burned. It got scorched. It mailed it in. Pelosi was only Speaker of the House for one term. That Congress was immediately blown out and replaced by the one led by John Boehner. What did Boehner do? Boehner delivered absolutely nothing towards that angst, those issues that those people showed up to rally for at those Tea Party rallies. Candidate Donald J. Trump is actually promising action on some of those things and on many others that they didn’t even touch upon. More anecdotal evidence as to why the turnouts are so large and have been reported.
Let’s go to the telephones. This is Scott in Virginia, first up here today on the Mike Church Show, on Election Day 2016. Yes, I doubled down on my rosary count to pray to Our Lady of Prompt Succor, who intervened for Andrew Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans, and our Lady of Fatima to intervene, twice then, for the electoral defeat of Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton on November 8, 2016. This is Scott in Virginia. Hey, Scott. How you doing?
Caller Scott: Just fine. How are you today, Mr. Church?
Mike: Fine, sir. Thank you.
Caller Scott: I’d like to ask you a question. On the Electoral College – I’m for Tennessee exiting this union, but, until then, is there any way we could change the Electoral College back to each state getting one vote so these cities and stuff, these big cities couldn’t have dominance on us? The whole map is red except for a few states.
Mike: The Electoral College doesn’t go by state; it goes by congressional district.
Caller Scott: Wouldn’t it be more federal if they went by state?
Mike: Absolutely. Of course it would be. That’s why it’s not. The State of Maine actually does that. I think it’s the last state that does it. There are three congressional districts in Maine. If you win two districts and lose one, you get two electoral votes. You don’t get winner take all. Winner take all is antithetical to federalism.
Caller Scott: This is where the Articles of Confederation was totally better because even on the things they voted on then, they voted as states. The state just got one vote; correct?
Mike: That was only when it came to making a treaty. When it came to making a treaty or amending the articles, there had to be a unanimous vote. That’s why there weren’t very many treaties that the Confederation Congress could vote upon because they knew they couldn’t pass them. They left most of that business to the states, as it should be. You could absolutely go back to a time where the Electoral College was the Electoral College. Scott, thanks for the call.
Amendment 12, ratified on the 15th of June 1804, set in motion by the election of 1800, which upended the Electoral College system as it was envisioned and then ratified by the founders. We ought to take time to read these things every now and then so we know how these things got out of whack.
The Electors shall meet in their respective states, and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President, one of whom, at least, shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves; they shall name in their ballots the person voted for as President, and in distinct ballots the person voted for as Vice-President, and they shall make distinct lists of all persons voted for as President, and of all persons voted for as Vice-President, and of the number of votes for each, which lists they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate;—The President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted;—The person having the greatest number of votes for President,
shall be the President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed; and if no person have such majority, then from the persons having the highest numbers not exceeding three on the list of those voted for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose immediately, by ballot, the President. But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice. [And if the House of Representatives shall not choose a President whenever the right of choice shall devolve upon them, before the fourth day of March next following, then the Vice-President shall act as President, as in the case of the death or other constitutional disability of the President.] The person having the greatest number of votes as Vice-President, shall be the Vice-President, if such number be a majority of the whole number of Electors appointed, and if no person have a majority, then from the two highest numbers on the list, the Senate shall choose the Vice-President; a quorum for the purpose shall consist of two-thirds of the whole number of Senators, and a majority of the whole number shall be necessary to a choice. But no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.

Mike: By the way, for those of you that say the founders didn’t mean to put in the natural-born citizen clause into the Constitution, and didn’t mean for there to be very, very strict observance of eligibility rules, stick the 12th Amendment into your tiny pipe, light it on fire, and smoke on it. The last clause says: By the way, if you’re not eligible for the presidency, then you can’t run for the vice presidency. That’s how devoted to it they were. What that basically says is, again, in a federal election for the presidency, it is up to the state. Each state decides who their electors are going to be and how they’re going to vote. They can tell them how to vote. States have passed laws that say they do tell them how to vote. Remember, back in 2000, during the Bush v. Gore controversy, there was a controversy. If you recall, one or more of the electors from, I can’t remember which state it was, said they were going to switch their electoral vote. Of course, the governor of the state said: You can’t do that! Think about it. This is the way it should be. This is the way it should be. It should be that electors, by congressional district – and even that’s too large. You do know that the average size of a congressional district today is 780,000 residents. That’s totally out of scale. It can’t possibly be representative.
By the way, there’s a headline trending now on Twitter, and I’m seeing it on Fox News now, “Trump: We’re living in a divided nation.” We do live in a divided nation. One of the things that was talked about earlier today is that there could be – what happens if candidate Trump says: I don’t accept the outcome of the Florida election and I’m not going to concede until we get a total recount of the whole thing. It ultimately comes down to Florida.
