NO RIGHT TO VOTE FOR PRESIDENT

The highest Federal position that American citizens can vote for is the House of Representatives. Voting for the President is unconstitutional. Nowhere in the US Constitution does it allow or give any rights for citizens to vote for the President. According to the Constitution, the President is elected by the Electoral College, which the States appoints.

Article 2 Section 1
[1] The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows:

[2] Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress; but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.

The Constitution never instructs citizen to vote for a President or Vice-President. And just because we want to make it important for people to vote for these two positions, makes it unconstitutional to do so! We don’t vote and then the Electoral College votes as we voted. That’s double voting! That makes no sense! Why do people vote and then the Electoral College votes the same way? Go back to the original way, the legal way to vote for the President and Vice-President and you will automatically stop “voter FRAUD!”

And while we are at it, repeal the 17th Amendment that change the way Senators were appointed to the senate:

[1] The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislatures.

And let the Senator be appointed by Article 1 Section 3

[1] The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature thereof,2 for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote.

Thus, this would do away with the “Career Senator” and make it a civic duty.

Now again, the greatest power is in the House of Representatives where the people vote for those who will represent them as stated in:

Article 1 Section 2.

[1] The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States, and the Electors in each State shall have the Qualifications requisite for Electors of the most numerous Branch of the State Legislature.

The power lies with the House of Representative on all Revenue bills:

Article 1 Section 7.

[1] All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.

And if the people do not like the way their money is being spent or taxed, then the representatives will be remove within two years. Their office will be in the area of the voters and not far away. And the list goes on.

So let’s stop voter fraud, presidential campaigns, and senatorial campaigns and do what is Constitutionally right, vote for the highest and most important position in the United States—vote for your Representatives, then your vote will really count!
