Col­lu­sion or ig­no­rance?

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - JIM POSMER Lake­land, Flor­ida

The cov­er­age given by the me­dia to the Democrats on the claim that Hil­lary Clin­ton won the pop­u­lar vote and there­fore should be pres­i­dent shows one of two things: ei­ther the un­de­ni­able ig­no­rance or the ab­so­lute de­ceit and col­lu­sion of the me­dia and the Demo­cratic Party.

If one had any un­der­stand­ing of Article ll of the Con­sti­tu­tion, one would im­me­di­ately dis­miss this claim by Democrats as a joke or a de­ceit­ful state­ment. If they al­low this state­ment with­out chal­lenge, know­ing of Article ll, they add to the de­ceit.

Yes, Hil­lary Clin­ton re­ceived 2.5 mil­lion more votes than Don­ald Trump. Mrs. Clin­ton won by 4.5 mil­lion over Mr. Trump in our five largest cities, New York, Los An­ge­les, Chicago, Hous­ton, and Philadel­phia, all of which are con­trolled by Democrats. That would mean Mrs. Clin­ton lost the rest of America by two mil­lion votes. Yes, Mrs. Clin­ton was re­jected by the ma­jor­ity of the states; 60 per­cent of the states voted for Mr. Trump, and Mr. Trump won the elec­toral col­lege 306 to 233, as Con­sti­tu­tion man­dates in Article ll.

These five large cities rep­re­sent less than six per­cent of the pop­u­la­tion. This is clearly why the Founders of this repub­lic penned Article ll, al­low­ing all to have a say. This way the de­sires of one re­gion can­not dom­i­nate the coun­try.

Which is it, ig­no­rance or de­ceit­ful col­lu­sion?
