Election 2016, The Alliance Party

                A newly formed political party called The Alliance Party may prove to be a formidable force in the 2016 election. This party was formed as a survivor effort by supporters of a 2000 Presidential Candidate that maintained he won the popular vote. In reality, he got a plurality of votes from the electorate residing in eight states that contain 57 percent of the U.S. population: California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, but lost the popular vote in Florida.  

        The 2000 US Census Bureau makes public that these states have the highest proportion of foreign-born persons in the United States.            

                After the 2000 election, The Alliance Party, which was cultivated by an elite group of foreign investors, pushed though a Constitutional Amendment that eliminated the Electoral College and made the Presidential election simply, a winner by majority of votes. Although the majority of the US’s population lives in only nine states, in the past the Electoral Process protected the other 42 states voting rights. However, the process was little understood by the populace and a Constitutional Amendment passed easily. When voters failed to fight for The Electoral College, it was sacrificed, leaving way for the worse aspects of human nature to be exploited.
        How real is this scenario? The facts are accurate–with the exception of the imaginary Alliance Party and the Constitutional Amendment.

                Could it happen? Do not say no until you think about how safe you felt before September 11, 2001. 
                The Electoral College guarantees that the all voters will have the opportunity for their vote to be counted–with their varying paradigms, ideologies, beliefs, skin color, religions, economic situations, and every other difference that make up the Hats of the United States, from Cochise headdress to Hedda Hopper’s millinery .  
                If not for the Electoral process, the President of the United States could be elected exclusively by voters entirely from only the heavily populated areas. 
                Think about it. California makes up 12% of the population of the United States, where New York and Texas make up 7% and 8% respectively.  Add it up. 
                If not for the Electoral Process, the nine states that make up half of the US’s population, New Jersey, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Florida, New York, Texas, and California would decide the Presidency of the United States, and lesser-populated states, such as Wyoming, Vermont, North Dakota, Alaska, Hawaii, and South Dakota would not even be represented in the Election process.                

        Thus materialized The Alliance Party.
                Election 2000 was the perfect example of the wisdom of the Electoral process. Sixty percent (60%) of the states selected the president, and when the "folks" in states like South Dakota pulled that lever, their vote was counted. Sixty percent of the states decided who would represent the mishmash of individuals that make up the United States of America. One hundred percent of the states were represented simply because it was the fear of an Alliance Party, of which was the archetype Alexander Hamilton wrote about in Federalist No. 68 March 14, 1788:  

”Talents for low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity, may alone suffice to elevate a man to the first honors in a single State; but it will require other talents, and a different kind of merit, to establish him in the esteem and confidence of the whole Union”

                Still, pitifully, in the 2000 Election, while almost three-fourths (69%) of the US population was voter age, only 63% was registered to vote, and of the registered voters, only just a little over half voted in the election. Forty-five percent (45%) of our voter age population did not elect the President of the United States of America in the 2000 Election.
