Holy !#@$: Republican Brains Spotted

This is brilliant. Republicans have captured a number of blue states in recent elections. Republicans in these states are considering changing how a state's electors are chosen. All states except for Maine and Nebraska are winner take all. In Maine and Nebraska, the electors are voted in each congressional district, with the final 2 votes going to the popular vote winner.

If the changes are made in blue states, it means Republicans could make pickups without performing any better in the popular vote. States such as California, New York, Illinois and Pennsylvania have many Republicans in their Congressional delegation, but the Democrats are almost a lock to win the state each year due to higher populations in the cities. If these changes were implemented in these states (and Republicans can't do this in NY or California, which are key states), Republicans could cut into the Democratic advantage in elections.

Secession is somewhat of a stupid idea because if you look at a county-by-county map of America, it's clear that New York, Illinois,Pennsylvania, and the eastern parts of California, Oregon and Washington, would all opt to join a secessionist rump. Blue state Republicans fighting for their say in the electoral college could be a step in the direction of secession, or a way to make secession unnecessary. If this could be achieved, the only other step needed to restore the country would be to deport all the illegals and assimilated naturalized citizens.

Now they’re trying to steal 2016: The demented GOP schemes to rewire the Electoral College and elect a Tea Party president
