To The Editor,
We, the people of the United States citizenry, would like to know why the president and vice president candidates are placed on the ballot in national elections? Since Article II, Section 1 states that the President and Vice President are to be elected by the electors voted into the Electoral College by the state legislatures, and are the only ones to vote the president and vice president into office because of their knowledge. I have not heard of any electors being voted into the Electoral College at any time.
Who are the electors? Put your thinking hats on, when the Constitution was brought forth by our Founding Fathers, education was very rare. Alexander Hamilton feared that the people with no education would not vote for the right person for the presidency. He considered those people too illiterate. That is the reason for the Electoral College, then, not now. We the people have an education now.
The Electoral College also places all the electoral votes in that state, for one candidate when he won the majority of elector’s votes of 51% or more. This means that there should be only a percent of the votes for that candidate, and the rest for the lower candidates, and not all votes for one candidate. This shows we the people are being told that our votes don’t count.
I read through the Constitution and found no explanation or Amendments ratified effective December 15, 1791, that shows otherwise. Amendment XII ratified June 15, 1804, Amendment XIV Section 2 ratified July 9, 1868, XXIII ratified March 29, 1961 and Amendment XXIV ratified January 23, 1964 are almost the same as before, electors votes only. I guess the politicians put the president and vice president on the ballot to make people believe the people are voting the president and vice president into office. This has been a scam by the politicians for over a century or more. Since January 2021 the Congress was going to count the Electoral votes only before the riot in D.C.
Electoral College, the numbers of electors, are the same numbers as the Senate and the House of Representatives from that state and should change in all states, populations change too fast by death or moving away. The County Election Commissions should keep a tight rein on registered voters otherwise they could lose all the votes in that county on elections. With this age of technology, the job should be a lot easier than all the past years.
According to the government they almost know when a person sneezes, so why doesn’t the Election Commissioners keep a better listing of registered voters. I think they don’t want us dumb people to know they are goofing off and not getting their job done right or those people don’t know how to do their job.
Now in modern days, people have an education, to read and write for themselves. So why, we the people, can we not vote the president and vice president into office by popular vote? Are you people who want the Electoral College telling us that we the people are too illiterate and don’t know how to vote for the president and vice president like Alexander Hamilton said in his letter to Thomas Jefferson?
I was born and raised here in the United States, which makes me a citizen of the United States and a registered voter. I served my country in the USNR, but not for the government because I was stabbed in the back with a purple screwdriver by the bureaucrats when I enlisted in November 1954 through November 1962. Under mine and 8,000 other enlistees, small print (that took a strong magnify) said the above signature forfeits all rights to VA and GI rights. Now the military says I can have Ole Glory on my casket only.
I took an oath to protect my Constitution, country and my flag, so quit stepping on my rights as a United States citizen. You have me mad, since I found out the United States citizens cannot vote directly for our president. I’ve heard of four presidents that won by electoral votes but lost by popular votes. Two presidents before my time — I’m not that old — and the other two I saw win by electoral votes only and would have lost by popular votes.
Read the Constitution, see what it says and means for yourself, then write or call your state representatives.
Thank you for reading my letter, I hope you do some serious thinking of what I said.
May God bless the United States of America once again.
