One of the disadvantages of a “liberal” education, that is a education by political liberals rather than what was once called a classical liberal education is that people forget some rather basic stuff.
A good example of this comes in this story concerning a “wargame” of election 2020 that Twitchy mentioned:
Podesta presupposing voter suppression in an election that hasn’t happened yet and arguing it in a make believe scenario gives the entire game away. It’s their fallback no matter what. https://t.co/QJNLD7cM0l— Stephen L. Miller (@redsteeze) August 3, 2020
Let’s forget about the point of the Democrats not accepting the results of the election and look at a point that seems to have been missed by those brilliant Democrat wargamers.
In a dispute over electors the House and Senate votes BY STATE.
That means that while there are 38 more democrats than Republicans in California, that adds up to ONE vote for democrats, Just like Texas’ 9 seat republican majority is worth only one vote.
Pelosi’s Majority means NOTHING
What does that mean? It means that if the Democrats manage to not only maintain their current majority manage to get the exact same makup as they have now (highly unlikely) if there is a vote on disputed electorial votes OR if the house has to pick a president then the count is:
Republicans 26 Democrats 23 Tied 1 (Pennsylvania)
And remember that presumes the GOP picks up no seats in close states. If the GOP picks up one seat in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Colorado suddenly they have republican majorities.
And one seat in Minnesota, Iowa, Nevada, Maine or NH deadlocks those states, two flips them.
And remember the GOP has the majority of states ALREADY.
Now I don’t doubt that Democrats and the media in such a scenario would go all in on flipping a few members but I don’t doubt that GOP supporters would do so as well.
So who do you think gets the presidency if it goes to the house, big hint, it sure is hell isn’t Joe Biden.
