Step by Step Yet Again

by Thomas A. Droleskey

Amazing. The level of utter stupidity on the purely natural level that grips America in the mania of the diabolical fraud that is the American electoral system is amazing.

So many people, including the lion's share of Catholics, no matter where they find themselves on the vast expanse of the ecclesiastical divide, believe that presidential elections in the United States of America are decided by direct popular vote, that is, that the winner of this quadrennial farce between competing sets of naturalists is the person who receives the most number of votes cast by individual voters. This is false, which is why the national public opinion polls mean nothing as to who will win the election between President Barack Hussein Obama, who will be renominated by the organized crime family of naturalism of the false opposite of the "left," the Democratic Party, in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Wednesday, September 5, 2012, and Willard Mitt Romney, who will be nominated by the organized crime family of naturalism of the false opposite of the "right," the Republican Party, on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, in Tampa, Florida.

The only public opinion polls that matter insofar as predicting the likely outcome in a given presidential election are those that measure voter preferences in the "swing" states, that is, those states whose electoral votes actually determine its ultimate outcome.

As has been the case in every election since 1988, the electoral college votes of twenty-eight states are already predetermined. Eleven states, possessing a combined total of one hundred sixty-one electoral votes, will be in the camp of the shamelessly manipulative and exploitative statist named Barack Hussein Obama no matter what happens in the next one hundred eighty-eight days until those who choose to vote go to the polls on November 6, 2012. Those states are California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington. The District of Columbia's thee electoral votes have always gone to the presidential nominee of the false oppose of the "left," the Democratic Party, since its residents were able to cast votes in 1964 as a result of the Twenty-third Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. Trying to "keep Obama out of the White House for the next four years" is a complete waste of time, which is why the carefully  calculated campaign of Willard Mitt Romney will not spend a dime's worth of advertising in those states or do much, if anything, in the way of campaigning there.

Seven states, possessing a total of sixty-six votes, lean in favor of the incumbent president's re-election. Those states are Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon and Wisconsin. Of those states, it is my belief that only New Mexico could swing to the candidate of the false opposite of the naturalist "right," Romney, although it is just barely possible for him to win Wisconsin.

There are sixteen states, possessing a total of one hundred thirty-one electoral votes, that are locked up for Willard Mitt Romney. Those states are Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming. Caesar Barackus Obamus Ignoramus's puppeteer, David Axelrod, will not have any of the caesar's shekels spent for advertising in those states. Although the demographic composition in Texas is changing, it will be a "red state" in 2012, something that may not be the case in four or eight years from now, presuming that God does not intervene in the interim to put an end to this madness of a mad, mad, mad, mad world. Four states, carrying thirty-nine electoral votes, lean in Romney's direction (Georgia, Indiana, Montana and South Carolina).

The demographics in once formerly solidly "red states" such as Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia have changed to such an extent that even Arizona, the state that produced the 1964 and 2008 Republican presidential nominees (Barry Goldwater in 1964 and John Sidney McCain III in 2008), is "in play" this year. Only four of those states (George, Indiana, Montana and South Carolina) are said to "lean" in Romney's direction.

The math is this as it stands right now: Obama has one hundred sixty-one sure electoral votes. He has another sixty-six likely electoral votes, placing him with a total of two hundred twenty-seven, just forty-three short of what he needs to be re-elected: two hundred seventy (270). He needs to carry the states that are leaning for him and pick up the right combination of the "swing" or "toss up" states. Romney, on the other hand, has one hundred thirty-one certain electoral votes and another thirty-nine likely votes, giving him one hundred seventy, one hundred electoral votes short of ousting the man who used his own RomneyCare as the model for ObamaCare. The math works in favor of Obama, to say nothing of the politics of the clever "community organizer's" team of bare-knuckles statists and the cautious, measured approach of a man who has been whatever he has to be during the course of his ziz-zag, flip-flop career, Romney. 

As I have been trying to tell you for a long time, the demographics of this country will continue to change as the parents of the baby-boomers die off and as the boomers' children and grandchildren, having been exposed to a steady diet of the "leftist" brand in naturalism in what passes for the American "education" system" and concerned principally, if not exclusively, about their economic well-being, become reliable partisans of the organized crime family of the naturalist "left," the Democratic Party. Demographics have changed also because of immigration, both legal and illegal, in enough states to alter their political landscapes considerably.

This is to say nothing, of course, about the fact that the average and median ages of the population of this country will continue to rise as a direct result of chemical and surgical baby-killing.

The election will be decided, therefore, in the so-called "swing" or "toss up" states, which possess a total of one hundred forty-one electoral votes. Those states are Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. That's right, the election, for those who think that the exercise in deciding to go over the cliff at fifty-five miles per hour or seventy-five miles an hour matters, will be decided in those eleven states, disregarding all of the vote fraud that has taken place in this country from its inception and the use of illegal immigrants and others ineligible to vote in order to inflate the vote totals of our globe-trotting, "patriotic" president, Obama.

As people forget and do intend find themselves being immersed into the spectator sport of American politics, it is useful once again to review some basic facts about how the President and Vice President of the United States of America are elected.

The President and Vice President the United States of America are elected by means of the electoral college according to the provisions found in Article II and the Twelfth, Twentieth and Twenty-Third Amendments of the Constitution of the United States of America.

It works like this:

1. Each state is assigned a number of electors equivalent to that state's number of representatives in the House of Representatives and its two senators in the United States Senate.

2. The number of representatives each state is assigned depends upon a state's population in proportion to that of the rest of the states of the nation. The sole reason for which the United States Census is taken decennially is to determine where people live so that the apportionment of representation among the states in the United States House of Representatives may reflect shifts in population.

3. There are currently 435 seats in the House of Representatives. Each state has two senators, meaning that there are 100 senators. As a result of the Twenty-third Amendment, which was ratified in 1961, the District of Columbia has the same number of electoral votes that it would have if it had the status of a state, three, although it is prohibited from having more than the least populous state. This means that there are 538 votes in what is called the "electoral college" (the term is never used in the Constitution, by the way).

4.  Thus it is that the 538 electoral votes are apportioned among the states as follows:

  1. California-----------------------55 electoral votes.
  2. Texas---------------------------38 electoral votes.
  3. New York----------------------29 electoral votes.
  4. Florida--------------------------29 electoral votes.
  5. Illinois---------------------------20 electoral votes.
  6. Pennsylvania-------------------- 20 electoral votes.
  7. Ohio-----------------------------18 electoral votes.
  8. Michigan-------------------------16 electoral votes.
  9. Georgia--------------------------16 electoral votes.
  10. New Jersey----------------------14 electoral votes.
  11. North Carolina-------------------15 electoral votes.
  12. Virginia---------------------------13 electoral votes.
  13. Massachusetts--------------------11 electoral votes.
  14. Indiana----------------------------11 electoral votes.
  15. Missouri---------------------------11 electoral votes.
  16. Tennessee-------------------------11 electoral votes.
  17. Washington------------------------12 electoral votes.
  18. Arizona----------------------------10 electoral votes.
  19. Maryland--------------------------10 electoral votes.
  20. Minnesota--------------------------10 electoral votes.
  21. Wisconsin--------------------------10 electoral votes.
  22. Alabama----------------------------9 electoral votes.
  23. Colorado---------------------------9 electoral votes.
  24. Louisiana---------------------------8 electoral votes.
  25. Kentucky---------------------------8 electoral votes.
  26. South Carolina----------------------9 electoral votes.
  27. Connecticut-------------------------7 electoral votes.
  28. Iowa--------------------------------6 electoral votes.
  29. Oklahoma---------------------------7 electoral votes.
  30. Oregon------------------------------7 electoral votes.
  31. Arkansas-----------------------------6 electoral votes.
  32. Kansas-------------------------------6 electoral votes.
  33. Mississippi----------------------------6 electoral votes.
  34. Nebraska-----------------------------5 electoral votes.
  35. Nevada-------------------------------6 electoral votes.
  36. Utah----------------------------------6 electoral votes.
  37. West Virginia-------------------------5 electoral votes.
  38. Hawaii--------------------------------4 electoral votes.
  39. Idaho---------------------------------4 electoral votes.
  40. Maine---------------------------------4 electoral votes.
  41. New Hampshire-----------------------4 electoral votes.
  42. Rhode Island--------------------------4 electoral votes.
  43. Alaska---------------------------------3 electoral votes.
  44. Delaware------------------------------3 electoral votes.
  45. Montana-------------------------------3 electoral votes.
  46. North Dakota--------------------------3 electoral votes.
  47. South Dakota--------------------------3 electoral votes.
  48. Vermont-------------------------------3 electoral votes.
  49. Wyoming------------------------------3 electoral votes.
  50. District of Columbia--------------------3 electoral votes.

5. The individual electors may be any legal resident of voting age in a particular state, although they may not be Federal office holders or employees.

6. The Constitution leaves it to each state legislature to determine the method by which the electors will be appointed. It has been the practice for most of the past 170 years or so for the electors to be appointed by means of direct popular election in each state.

7. As a result of the rise of political parties, a development not foreseen by the Constitution's framers nor prohibited by the text of Constitution, each state legislature has enacted legislation to restrict ballot access for candidates for president and vice president to the nominees of established political parties who have nominated a slate of electors to represent them in that state. Those presidential candidates who do not belong to established political parties and who can gain ballot access (often a long and expensive process) in a particular state must nominate a certified slate of electors to represent them.

8. In forty-nine of the fifty-one jurisdictions in which the presidential election takes place every four years, voters go to the polls (or cast absentee ballots) to vote for the slate of electors who are pledged to support a particular nominee for the presidency and vice presidency. In these forty-nine jurisdictions, that is, in every state except Maine and Nebraska, electors are elected on a "winner take all" basis, meaning that whichever slate of electors wins one more popular vote than its nearest competitor is elected en toto and then gets to cast that state's electoral votes on the first Monday following the second Wednesday in December in the state capital.

9. This means that voters cast who cast ballots this year on November 4, 2008, elect a slate (or team) of electors pledged to support a particular presidential-vice presidential team. If, for example, the fifty-five person slate of electors in California pledged to support the Democrat Party nominees of Barack Hussein Obama and Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., wins one more electoral vote than the fifty-five person slate of electors pledged to support the Republican Party nominees of John Sidney McCain III and Sarah Heath Palin, that Democrat Party slate of electors is elected en toto. The other slates of electors (Republican, American Independent, Libertarian, Reform, Green, etc.) lose.

10. This is the same principle by which voters select candidates for statewide office (Governor/Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Comptroller, etc.) and their state's two United States Senators. Whichever candidate gets a plurality of votes in the state (a plurality is simply one more vote than received by one's nearest competitor) is elected. The losing candidates, no matter how close they get to winning, lose. They go home. They get no share in the governorship or lieutenant governorship or attorney general's office. I know. I did not get to share in 3.7% of the salary of the Lieutenant Governor of New York in 1986. The ticket of Denis Dillon and Thomas Droleskey lost, becoming but a footnote in the annals of political trivia. Losing slates of electors for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States, well, lose!

11. Thus it is the slate of electors that wins a simple plurality of votes in a state is elected as a team. Its electors will then cast that state's votes for President and Vice President of the United States of America. Each elector will cast one vote for President and one vote for Vice President. The Constitution specifies that one of the two people for whom an elector votes must not be a resident of the same state as the elector, meaning that Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates must be residents of different states by the time that the electors cast their ballots on the first Monday following the second Wednesday in December.

12. The actual election for President of the United States of America this year takes place on Monday, December 15, 2008. The election on November 4, 2008, determines which slate of electors will be elected in each state.

13. Two states, Maine and Nebraska, award two electoral votes to the candidate who wins a plurality of that state's statewide vote. The other electoral votes (two in Maine, three in Nebraska) in these two states are awarded on the basis of which candidate wins a plurality of the popular vote in each of their Congressional districts (two in Maine, three in Nebraska). This is a variation of the Mundt-Lodge Electoral College, named after the late United States Senators Karl Mundt, R-South Dakota, and Henry Cabot Lodge, R-Massachusetts.

14. No one is legally the President-elect of the United States of America or the Vice President-elect of the United States of America until the electoral votes are cast in the state capitals on the first Monday after the second Wednesday are opened and counted by the President of the United States Senate (the Vice President of the United States of America) before a joint session of the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives. A ceremonial committee of Senators and Representatives is appointed by the President of the United States Senate to "inform" the President-elect and Vice President-elect of their official election.

15. What does all of this mean? All of this means that we do not elect the President and Vice President of the United States of America by direct popular election on a nationwide basis. In other words, the "raw" number of popular votes garnered by a particular presidential nominee's fifty-one different slates of electors on a state-by-state basis mean nothing insofar as electing the President and Vice President of the United States of America is concerned. Then Texas Governor George Walker Bush won the Presidency in the year 2000 by virtue of his having won more electoral votes than Albert Arnold Gore, Jr., even though he lost the national popular vote total by 543,895 votes. This is the system we have, and it means that the national popular vote total is meaningless. It is the electoral votes won on a state-by-state basis that matters. It is that simple.

These are the procedures, drawn from the Constitution of the United States of America and from state laws, that govern the election of the President and Vice President of the United States of America in the general election every four years.


Mind you, this exercise in pure political science on the natural level changes nothing of the analyses that I have brought to bear concerning the fact that there is no candidate of either major organized crime family in the United States of America, the Democrat Party and the Republican Party, who supports Catholic teaching and has the good of souls at heart. This exercise in pure political science on the natural level has been offered to you to demonstrate to the screaming lunatics out there in "blue" states that no one who abstains from voting in places such as California, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maryland, Illinois, Hawaii, Delaware and the District of Columbia is helping to "elect" Barack Hussein Obama. Wake up. Slumber no longer in your ignorance. Once again speaking on a purely natural level, the "votes" aren't there in those states for a Romney. That's reality.

Let me try to explain this in the simplest of terms:

Fictional bus driver Ralph Kramden, who thought that his wife Alice had stashed away lots of money over the years, asked his wife to gather up all of their "mad" money when his bus drivers' union went on strike against the Gotham Bus Company. This is a paraphrase of the the dialogue:

Kramden: "All right, Alice. Gather up all of our mad money. That's right, everything you've been squirreling away over the years. Clean out the drawers. Empty your pocketbooks. Let's add it all up and see how much we have."

Alice Kramden said immediately without adding anything up: "Eleven dollars and thirty-six cents."

Kramden: "Eleven dollars and thirty-six cents? What have you done with all of our money."

Alice Kramden: "With the amount that you bring home every week, Ralph, you should be thanking me for saving the eleven dollars and thirty-six cents." (Paraphrased from "Brother Ralph," The Honeymooners, November 26, 1955.)


Folks, you've got the equivalent of "eleven dollars and thirty six cents" in the permanently "blue" states. You are delusional if you think that voting for Willard Mitt Romney in one of those aforementioned "blue" states is going to prevent Obama from getting another four years ni the White House.. And one of the reasons you've got only eleven dollars and thirty-six cents in the "blue" states is because of the long term effects of Americanism on the psyches of Catholics in the United States of America and the counterfeit church of conciliarism's formal embrace of this insidious heresy from Hell that leads nations into an abyss of chaos. (See Apostasy Has Consequences.)

Obviously, people are going to believe what they want to believe. Very few people believed me in the year 2000 when I explained to them this exact electoral reality then (at a time I still believed in voting for minor party candidates of conscience). What I told them would be the case before the election turned out to be in the case in the election, prompting me to write the following thereafter

The political analysis I have been providing over the course of the past few years in Christ or Chaos has proven to be right on the money. I expressed my doubt that George W. Bush could win the White House, in light of his intellectual shallowness and in light of the cultural factors facing our nation described earlier in this essay. As noted, Bush lost the popular vote, a loss that would have been exponentially greater had Nader not been in the race.

Furthermore, I indicated in the most recent issue of Christ or Chaos that certain states — New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont — were bound to fall into the Gore camp. Although I believed a vote of conscience was always the right vote to cast as a matter of principle, people in those states had a veritable “free throw” to cast for Buchanan or Phillips. We elect the president through the Electoral College; the national popular vote total is irrelevant. What matters is the popular vote total in the individual states. Anyone who knows anything about practical politics — and it’s amazing to me how unrealistic the so-called pragmatists actually are when they make their supposedly clever judgments about how to vote in particular elections — knows that the states listed above have tended toward the Democratic Party in national elections. The same people who used national polling data to browbeat supporters of Buchanan and Phillips into voting for Bush (because the polls said that Buchanan could not win) simply refused to believe the state-by-state polling data that showed Bush the sure loser in the ten states I’ve listed. (Justice Will Lose No Matter Who Wins, 2000.)


Such is the madness of pluralism, however, that many millions of people take leave of their senses in the diabolical trap that is the Judeo-Masonic electoral system and refuse even to believe the cold, hard facts of simple electoral arithmetic.

What will happen on November 6, 2012, the day after the election if there is an election result that is clear and uncontested? I will tell you.

Naturalists who support all manner of evils under cover of law will have been elected to the offices of President and Vice President of the United States of America. These naturalists will promote the evils they support under cover of civil law and export them overseas. Babies will continue to be killed, both by surgical and chemical means, at the same rate as they have been killed, more or less, in the past thirty-nine years. Pro-aborts will be appointed to the White House staff and to Cabinet positions. Funding for domestic and international "family planning" programs will increase. American jobs and manufacturing will continue to be outsourced, principally to Communist China. Needless wars, most likely including one with Iran, will be fought. The nation's borders will remain porous. The size and scope and power of the civil state will increase. The names do not matter. The results, differing here and there around the edges, will be almost identical.

Some want to trust in their "guns" to protect American "freedom," which is a myth to begin with, of course. I will trust in the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, praying as many Rosaries each day as I can.

Christendom was not established at the ballot box. It won't be restored at the ballot box, which is, as I have come to recognize, the devil's tool by which naturalism is advanced more and more with each passing election year.

Christendom will be restored as the fruit of the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
