Kyle Becker of Fox News reports that a resolution is in draft that would abolish the Electoral College.  The resolution states that it is “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to abolish the ELECTORAL COLLEGE and to provide for the DIRECT ELECTION of the…President of the United States.” 

Becker states that the “Democratic Party moves to nationalize elections & solidify a permanent majority. This would be a Constitutional amendment and thus, subject to a much higher threshold of passage.”

There is concern that if the Electoral College is abolished, it will never be able to be reinstated. Large population centers would, in essence, be ruling the rest of the country. The Electoral College was designed by our founders to bring a representational government–one where rural states would have the same ability as more populous states to be effectual in their selection of the President.
Another legislative effort to change the foundational voting processes in our nation is HR1.  It failed in earlier attempts for passage. House and Senate leaders may choose to resurrect that resolution for passage with the control of the House and the Senate.
Read the new proposed resolution for yourself (see below), and pray that our leaders would only pass legislation that is Constitutional.

Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to abolish the electoral college and to provide for the direct election of the President and Vice President of the United States.

January 11, 2021

Mr. Cohen (for himself, Ms. Lofgren, Ms. Eshoo, Ms. Schakowsky, Ms. Brownley, Mr. DeFazio, Mr. Espaillat, Mr. Garamendi, and Mr. Cooper) submitted the following joint resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary


Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to abolish the electoral college and to provide for the direct election of the President and Vice President of the United States.

Whereas the Founders of the Nation established the electoral college in an era of limited nationwide communication and information sharing;

Whereas the electoral college is premised on an antiquated theory that citizens will have a better chance of knowing about electors from their home States than about Presidential candidates from out of State;

Whereas the development of mass media and the internet has made information about Presidential candidates easily accessible to United States citizens across the country and around the world;

Whereas citizens now have a far better chance of knowing about out-of-State Presidential candidates than about Presidential electors from their home State;

Whereas Thomas Jefferson wrote, “I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.”;

Whereas since the Nation’s founding, United States citizens have amended the Constitution to expand the opportunity for citizens to directly elect their elected leaders;

Whereas the 15th Amendment guarantees the right of all citizens to vote regardless of race;

Whereas the 19th Amendment guarantees the right of all citizens to vote regardless of gender;

Whereas the 26th Amendment guarantees the right of all citizens 18 years of age and older to vote regardless of age;

Whereas the 17th Amendment establishes both a precedent and a preference for the direct election of citizens’ elected representatives; and

Whereas the electoral college has become an anachronism: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years after the date of its submission for ratification:


 Section 1.

“The President and Vice President shall be elected by the people of the several States and the district constituting the seat of government of the United States.

 Section 2.

“The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most populous branch of the legislature of the State; although Congress may establish uniform age qualifications.

 Section 3.

“Each elector shall cast a single vote for two persons who have consented to the joining of their names as candidates for President and Vice President. No elector shall be prohibited from casting a vote for a candidate for President or Vice President because either candidate, or both, are inhabitants of the same State as the elector.

 Section 4.

“The pair of candidates having the greatest number of votes for President and Vice President shall be elected.

 Section 5.

“The times, places, and manner of holding such elections and entitlement to inclusion on the ballot shall be determined by Congress.

 Section 6.

“The Congress may by law provide for the case of the death or any other disqualification of any candidate for President or Vice President before the day on which the President-elect or Vice President-elect has been chosen; and for the case of a tie in any election.

 Section 7.

“This article shall take effect one year after the first day of January following ratification.”.

So sad so frightening it’s birth pangs the Lord told us about
It is that Antichrist spirit
We must keep our eyes on the Lord do all we can do to stand. As we see the day approaching may God have mercy on us . I still believe that in the midst of all this corruption God will miraculously overturn Roe v Wade
Even for a short time he will get the Glory.
I just read from American Center For Law And Justice that 42 percent of deaths worldwide is from abortion.
May God remember mercy in his judgement.
It’s time to let our light shine in the darkness. May others come to salvation may we have courage and his grace to remain faithful

God will not be mocked. In their attempt to deny that God is alive, they have shaken their fist in the face of the Most High God
through legislation that tries to deny the Laws Of God and His Righteous Judgment.
I pray that they repent and come back to God before it is too late. The Church will go through persecution we will be pressed in
the cleaning fire of Gods Love. This fire will keep us in Gods presence and seeking His will everyday and I pray that Joy and thank
fullness be our Banner in the midst of that persecution. I pray that Gods Holy Spirit would give overwheleming comfort and a heart
to reach the Lost. Heavenly Father grant Peace to all believers who love Jesus soon return and a heart for the lost and courage to stand for your truth and on your HOLY WORD Guide us Holy Spirit. Hold our hand and lead us not into temptation but protection and deliverance from the evil one. Help us Heavenly Father as believes to reach the lost so that they can escape Gods coming Judgment on this Nation and the World through the complete expectance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of our life and turn away from all Sin.

In Jesus Mighty Name AMEN

Lord I pray in the ne and blood of Yeshua, the the opposition gets so confused and prideful in all that they try to do and literally reveal their true purpose of illegal agendas, that they wind up whistle blowing on each other just to protect themselves, and as they find themselves alone in their caves. (Basement), they come to you on bended knee in repentance and ask for your Loving redemption and salvation. yes they must face their consequences, but it will give them time to get into you glorious good news and soak into you and you onto them. according to your will Heavenly Father. at the end of this day that you have made, all the glory is yours Amen

This is nothing more than, the Democrats attempt to become a one-party corrupt government, just like Communist China.

We have already seen the Democrats support for Big Tech censorship against conservatives and Republicans, helping to manage the narrative for the Democrats and their wicked agenda to destroy America and its freedoms.

Fake News Media also wants to shut down and destroy any viewpoint that opposes the Democrat Party. They continually false report any political news and are excited to be used by the Democrats to go after any political opposition.

They all call for violence against their political enemies and this will only get worse once they take office on January 20th.

Given Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden’s corrupt ties to Communist China, the Democrats will move quickly to open America’s doors to Socialism, Marxism and Communism. They will gladly open America’s doors to this awful oppressive government, designed solely to keep a one party dictatorship in power.

The Democrats rigged an election through mass voter fraud. They have the support of Main Stream Media and Big Tech to censor free speech. They call for violence against their political opponents. These are all the same things that countries with dictators do.

God please help our nation. Please help us to remain free. Please fight against this oppressive, aggression. Please protect our religious freedoms and our Constitutional freedoms. In Jesus name Amen.

The purpose of the electoral college is to allow all areas of the country to have an equal vote. Eliminating the electoral college will mean that people in the most populated areas will elect the president. i.e. California, Oregon, Washington, New York, and all the Democrat Party States and especially cities. Our Founding Fathers were inspired by the one and only living Triune God to allow every free man to have an equal vote.

You will never have seen an administration run so swiftly and with so much corruption in its first 100 days. They will see their implied success as a red light to charge full steam ahead with their unholy agenda. Look at the players being assembled, listen to the rhetoric. Christians wake up, read your bibles and seek God like you have never sought Him before. You may find yourselves in the coliseum, at labor camps or forced to wholeheartedly to toe the party line.
Luke 18: 1-8

Lord, have Mercy. Professing to be wise, we have become fools. Lord, forgive us.
