(National Sentinel)Â A Republic, If We Can Keep It: Before Election Night 2016 when she thought she was a shoo-in to replace Barack Obama in the White House, Hillary Clinton bashed then-GOP rival Donald Trump for saying he would “wait and see” before conceding defeat.
“That’s horrifying,” she exclaimed.Â â€œLetâ€™s be clear about what he is saying and what that means. He is denigrating â€” he is talking down our democracy. And I am appalled that someone who is the nominee of one of our two major parties would take that position.â€
Obama piled on as well.
At a campaign event in Florida a few days later when campaigning for Clinton he said, “That is not a joking matter. No, no, no. I want everyone to pay attention here.”
Obama added: “That is dangerous.”
Nearly two years later it is Clinton who is the one refusing to accept the results of the election she lost.
At event after event she’s blamed everyone but herself — James Comey, the Russians, white women, the Democratic Party.
And now she’s blaming the very system our founders fought for and died for: The Electoral College.
You’ve heard her complain before about how she won “the majority” of votes — and she did, thanks to California’s outsized population.
But of course, America isn’t a pure democracy — thank goodness — so majorities of voters mean nothing. It’s a majority ofÂ electoral college votes that matter.
During an appearance at Harvard University, Clinton called the electoral collegeÂ an “odd system” and contrary to the idea of “one person, one vote.”
“I know this is another really obvious thing to say. Vote in every election, not just presidential elections,” Clinton said at Harvard University, in a clipÂ flaggedÂ by NTK Network. “You know, it is maddening because one of the panelists said we get the government that we vote for. Now, we have this odd system with the Electoral College.”
She went on to call the roots of the Electoral College system “a little troubling.”
“But nevertheless, we’ve got it. I’ve been against it, by the way, since 2000,” Clinton said. “Not that you need to know that â€¦ I have been, because I just think it is absolutely contrary to â€˜one person, one vote.'”
…which is “absolutely contrary” to ourÂ republican system of government.
It’s just Clinton showing once again why Democrats cannot be trusted with power. Ever.
They don’t respect our system. They don’t believe in the Constitution as written. They want the authority to shape-shift our political structure to always favorÂ themÂ — no matter what the people want.
Our founders did not want a few large sections of the country deciding who would representÂ all Americans. That’s why they devised the Electoral College.
Clinton hates it now because she didn’t convince enough voters in enough states that she was the better candidate. You can bet that if she hadÂ won, she’dÂ love the Electoral College.
And here’s the other thing. If AmericaÂ was a pure democracy, Trump would have campaigned under a completely different strategy. He might have spent more time in California and New York if all it took to win was a majority, instead of focusing on electorally important states Clinton thought she had in the bag and chose to ignore.
Clinton is corrupt. She’s a horrible person. She doesn’t care about ‘average’ Americans. And she believed that campaigningÂ at all was somehow beneath her — that she should have just been anointed president and that would have been the end of it.
By petulantly criticizing our electoral system, Clinton proves exactly why she shouldÂ never be our president.
People who don’t respect our system would make lousy protectors of it.
