The Art of Baking, and the Art of the Republic, if you can learn it, and if you can keep it…

Recently we have heard calls from those who claim that we are experiencing a so called Constitutional crisis, and they call for the removal of the main Safeguards of the protection of Minorities within our Republic.

Indeed they obviously hate minorities, but they manage to mask their mob-rule mentality, and their sinister power putsch, as some ideal and principled quest for a form of Pure Democracy, and they successfully convince a lot of otherwise innocent citizens to carry water for them, in their foul mouthed intent to destroy and overthrow, that which holds all of us together in tolerance, compassion and understanding for everyone’s Civil, Lawful, and Constitutional Rights — backed up by the strength of the laws of the land and their enforcement.

And recently, some of these people have also claimed that it is the Electoral College that is one of the most dangerous institutions of American politics, and it needs to be removed from our tool kit for governance.

And because often-times these pushy voices tend to carry the weight of some errant politicians, ignoramuses, and mob leaders, who actually blame the Constitution, our system of governance, and even our Founding Fathers, for their own loses, shortcomings and failures — as Hillary Clinton famously does, is a calculated political animal attitude, witch creates a stirring that muddies the waters adequately so that they can then obfuscate and hide their crimes underneath the bottom mess. Flounders do this often in order to evade predators, and so do errant politicians in order to avoid the reach of the long arm of the law.

Yet, what these bottom dwellers, fail to understand is that they are effectively throwing hand grenades inside their own Glass-House, such as when our lovely Hillary goes around talking and blaming the basic safeguards of the minorities in our country for her fully warranted loss — her otherwise impolite and impolitic behavior, becomes intolerable.

After eating and pigging out, at the trough of the State and Federal Government for so many years and enriching herself to the tune of many Billions through her State department stint — to blame the Government system that she violated wholesale for her failure is akin to blowing up the Church in order to prove that God does not exist.

You can’t do that Hillary.

You simply do not do that not only because it is wrong, and really really awful, and that is why some people like Bill your husband, invite you to stop talking like that, and instead, go ahead and take some time off, and maybe bake something for Fax’s sake, or paint, or knit, or box, or go study in order to learn the Art of Rocketry like the little man of Pyongyang does in his free time — just to do something else in order to get your mind off things that make you go bat shit crazy.

I recommend taking some time off and learn “How to Bake” only because learning the ‘Art of Rocketry” might lead you into the related pursuit of wanting to learn the “Art of Nuclear Missiles” and because we are all savvy that you really want to blow up the White House with its current occupant during his sleep — you might get us all in a heap of troubles — so better please take up baking, without explosives.

And also because building safeguards like the Electoral College in our system is a way to prevent erstwhile bombers like your alter ego from blowing up our edifice of a Republic, we had these safeguards built within our Governance system from the get-go, as essential, and thus when you blame those institutions, for your stunning and outlandish — yet wholly expected defeat — during the last American presidential election of 2016, as you claim in your memoirs titled “What Happened?” — You effectively make yourself, the subject of scorn and ridicule.

And since … well … you seem uneducated and maybe it is time that somebody must break the news to You, and if that someone is to be Me, so be it — here it goes.

The answer to your question: “What happened?” is that “Hillary Happened.”

Just that.

Yet, Hillary is not alone in this fools’ errand, because all these sore-loser politicians, the political bloviators, and the all around sour-pusses amongst the television window talking heads — usually all ask the same basic but altogether silliest of questions every time they lose:

“What happened?”

Asking what happened after receiving a body blow from the People, might be a good starting point towards understanding defeat and towards recollecting your thoughts, but it is not an acknowledgement of reality.

You know what happened.

“Hillary Happened.”

Of course, it will take some time to get all of the other relevant and minute answers, yet for now — you need to only know one thing: You tanked.

And taking a holiday and naturally maturing and understanding that this defeat might be a blessing in disguise for the People, if not for yourself as well — might be a good way to get over it.

But not just Hillary, but most of the eager beavers of Politics, do not stop their illusion right there, nor do they go for a long quiet holiday, but they attempt to remain relevant, by stirring up the people’s resentment, hate, and reptilian emotions, while in order to mask their ignorance, they are asking the acutely stupid follow-up question:

“Why do we need the Electoral College system, when we know that the electoral college distorts the one-person, one-vote principle of democracy since electoral votes are not distributed according to population, and thus the will of the majority can be thwarted?”

Then, these unstoppable intellectual lightweights, usually go on to bloviate about the demerits of the electoral college and of our Constitutional Republic, as opposed to a simple majority vote Democracy…

They always do this hoping that they sound knowledgable and trendy in the same way that your friends oftentimes sound like reasonable deep thinkers, even though they are drunk, stoned and stupid, — at last in those few coastal States of these United States of America, where legalized weed is permissible and widely consumed, ingested, or smoked openly in fun and games party gatherings.

And here comes the reason that this question is the silliest of all political questions bar none — because it is obvious t anyone who has basic knowledge of our system of Governance, that the sore losers and erstwhile politicians, always blame the system for their loses and never blame themselves. And they always count on their pleas falling on willing ears of useful idiots, who would just as easily throw out the baby with the bathwater, because their darling lost her place in the queue of hereditary succession promised by her husband, and now she is acting like another Marie Antoinette proposing to force-feed “Intellectual-rotten-cake” to the angry masses starving for the simple & nutritious bread of the United Republic.

Still these folks remain unfettered and try to back up their claimant’s point by buttressing their earlier question with further salient points as when they reflect that the Electoral College system of governance, gives small states undue weight and influence that is not commensurate with their population strength, such as the state of Alaska, whose citizens exert a disproportionate weight in a presidential election, as well as in the Senate and therefore in the judiciary as well, and in all other extensions of Law and Governance stemming from the the upper house of the legislative branch of our governance system.

Put another way — a state like Alaska with a population of about 737,438 people has one member in the House of Representatives (Lower Congress) and two members in the United States Senate (Upper Congress), which gives the citizens of Alaska three electoral votes in our combined Houses of Parliament AKA House of Congress, or one electoral vote per 245,812.666667 people approx.

By contrast, a state like California, which is our most populous state, and which has almost 40 million people, and 55 electoral votes, or approximately one vote per 727,272.727273 people, and therefore, the common syllogism goes — these people ought to feel slightly … well … slighted.

Roughly and comparatively speaking, the individuals of Alaska have nearly three times the power in the Electoral College as Californians do.

But the Californicators have better weather, you could argue.

Yet many people in California still keep complaining, bitching and moaning about some imaginary slight… and the sleight of hand of those willy Founders who stole their “Rights” even though at the time of the Constitution there was no California to speak of, and the original 13 states had their own grievances to contend with, and through resolving these original State Rights’ grievances, they carefully planned for the future of many more states joining their nascent Union offering an equal footing as an incentive for Unity and Plurality of Common Sense support for the Federal institutions of a federated government that relied on the very States for the Existence of said Union.

However, in all seriousness, clearly complainers haven’t read anything about the Constitutional Convention, or about the Federalist papers, or even about State’s Rights — otherwise they might have had a better understanding of our Republic and the framework system that we live in, and they wouldn’t bash it at will…

Still far too many people whine, bitch and bemoan the fact, that using the Electoral College instead of the popular vote and majority rule in our Republic is an undemocratic method of choosing our Presidents, our Senators, and by extension, our Supreme Court and Federal Judges.

In a one word response I’d simply have to say:

“YES.”

YES, these grippers are absolutely right.

We do not live in a Democracy.

Period.

They are all absolutely CORRECT. All of my California friends are unfailingly and unseeingly correct, in their assessment that we do not live in a Democracy.

Because, not deciding who will be the US President by majority rule is obviously not the hallmark of democracy.

Yet, it is right here where political correctness takes a deep dive into the cesspool of turbidity and stupidity, because if they had read the simple memo that came with their voting privilege AKA the US Constitution — they would have known that the Founding Fathers went to great lengths to ensure that our system of Governance was that of a Republic and not of a Democracy.

As a matter of fact, the word Democracy does not appear in the Declaration of Independence, nor inside the Constitution, nor in any other of our founding documents or in the papers of the Constitutional Convention or even inside the Declaration of Independence.

Tellingly, when Dr Benjamin Franklin came out of the Constitutional Convention of Philadelphia, and was asked by an old lady: “Doctor, what form of Government have you all decided to give us?”

Benjamin Franklin replied simply thus:

“Madam, It’s a Republic, if you can keep it.”

And here are a few other notable quotations that were expressed by the Founding Fathers when asked about the merits of simple Democracy VS the Republic, as a means, mechanism, and method of Governance of the United States of America…

1) In Federalist Paper No. 10, James Madison wanted to prevent rule by majority faction, saying, “Measures are too often decided, not according to the rules of justice and the rights of the minor party, but by the superior force of an interested and overbearing majority.”

2) John Adams warned in a letter, “Remember democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet, that did not commit suicide.”

3) Edmund Randolph said, “That in tracing these evils to their origin, every man had found it in the turbulence and follies of democracy.”

4) Then Chief Justice John Marshall observed: “Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos.”

5) Indeed, all of the Founders expressed severe contempt for the tyranny of majority rule against the minorities, and thus throughout our Constitution, they placed in effect serious impediments to that tyranny.

As an example here is a litany of those obstacles to Majority’s tyranny against the minorities:
A) Two houses of Congress pose one obstacle to majority rule. That is, 51 senators can block the wishes of 435 representatives and 49 senators.
B) The president can veto the wishes of 535 members of Congress.
C) It takes an over-majority of two-thirds of both houses of Congress to override a presidential veto.
D) Another over-majority is required to make amendments and changes to the Constitution, because that act requires not a simple majority but a two-thirds vote of both houses, and if an amendment is approved, it requires ratification by three-fourths of state legislatures.
E) “E” stands for Electoral College, because literally the Electoral College is yet the stronger measure that thwarts simple majority rule, because it absolutely makes certain, that the highly populated states of today, mainly the 12 most populous coastal states, cannot run roughshod over the rest of the 38 states that make up these United States of America that stands as our federated nation. And that simple arithmetic of power balance amongst all states, forces a President and the Legislatures, as well as all potential presidential candidates, to seriously take into consideration the wishes of all of the United states regardless of size and socio-political make up.

So for those Americans who are obsessed with mob-rule, or a simple arithmetic popular majority rule stemming from the stuffed ballot boxes in a few popular states with one kind of voter preference — they just might want to get rid of the Senate as well, because guess what?

All states, regardless of population, have two senators.

Should we change representation in the House of Representatives to a system of proportional representation and eliminate the guarantee that each state gets at least one representative?

Because under our current system, seven states with populations of One million people, or even fewer citizens, still have one guaranteed representative — apparently giving them an undemocratic and disproportionate influence in the upper House of Congress.

And while we’re at it, should we make all congressional acts by majority rule?

So that when we’re finished with establishing mob-majority rule in Congress, should we then move to change our court system, which requires unanimity in jury decisions, to a simple majority rule?

And how far do you think that mob mentality will last before they elect to erect Guillotine on the public squares and in front of all the Courthouses and start decapitating scores of people who tend to think differently than the mob-majority?

Maybe you could ask the question to the scores of victims of the era of “Terror” that was ushered in after the storming of Bastille, during the French Revolution that employed the Guillotine in that era of Mob Majority rule that saw Robespierre and his reign of stark terror, reign supreme, in that mob-rule, ravaged country, that literally “ate its own children” when the guillotines were finally turned around and starting feeding on the heads of the revolutionaries and their families…

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

So to my fellow Americans, my question is simply this:

“Is it ignorance of, or contempt for our Constitution and for our Founding Fathers, as well as for the DNA of this nation — that fuels the current Democratic party’s call towards abolishing the Electoral College and the other safeguards that were instituted in the first place for venting the rage of the mobs, and defusing the riotous force of the mob-majority-rule, and instead protecting the peaceful co-existence of the minorities?”

I would follow that one question up, with this last one:

“And would you then be ready to yield, to the pressures of the pure democracy harpies, and the empowered majority mobs, that will push to go ahead and remove all other safety mechanisms that are in place now for the protection of the weaker ones in our Nation and for the protection of the longevity, and the healthy long term maintenance of our Republic?

PPS:

Please give me your answers on those questions right here and we shall track your responses, through simple majority arithmetic.

PPPS:

And if anyone of you even thinks for a moment that Bill’s suggestion of Hillary taking up baking as therapy is a sexist one — I shall have you be informed that the vast majority of bakers are burly men, and that we should take pity on poor Bill who looks awfully malnourished and on the throes of starvation, amongst all the other privations that he suffers now that Hillary is always at home, and therefore, he could really use the benefit of some home baked goods.

Of course, knowing Bill, I venture that maybe he would like his baked goods, to be mixed with some edibles within … but that’s another story and is wholly dependent on which State of the Union he can be at the time to see if he can lawfully ingest those. I recommend a quick visit to Washington state where the bakers had had some time to experiment with the various dosage formulations and the bakery consistencies of the “Edibles” they purvey to the general public, and where he will be able to satiate his hunger for all things edible…

However even simple food bakers, like Yours truly, who not only know how to bake bread, but also know how to bake a decent apple pie and also knows how to serve it A-La-Mode, would be happy to Fed-Ex some good and wholesome American apple pie with a wedge of Wisconsin cheese, to Bill, just to save him from imminent threat of famine.

So as you are all thinking of preparing a Baked-Goods-Food-Aid box to send to poor Bill to save him from death by starvation — here is his address where you can post all of your baked creations containing adequate supplies of edibles within.

Please send all such baked goods to this address by post directing it to:

Ex-President
William J. Clinton,
Paramount Plaza,
1633 Broadway,
New York, NY 10019

I assure you Bill, the man, will be eternally grateful for receiving your edible baked goods, and so will be the plump interns at the office…

By the way:
Blue colored fabric packaging is not necessary…

For the baked goods I mean.

Not for the Interns.

Capice?
