1824 revisited? Electoral college calamity. Election to be decided by congress?

        In 1824, the presidential election was thrown into chaos as a 4 way battle resulted in no nominee being able to capture 50% of the electoral college. Andrew Jackson received 41% of the electoral college delegates…and John Quincy Adams received just 30 %. Since no candidate had a majority of the delegates, the presidential election got thrown back in the House of Representatives. The 12th amendment mandates the house decide the presidential winner by a one state- one vote showdown. The law remains the same today…..and it’s ramifications on  this years election may be immense. .

     In 2012, there will be a 3way battle for the White House. One of these days the media’s is actually going to share that fact with the rest of the country…..but only when the New York Times et all are ready to take us on their journey into uncharted territory. A third party nominating platform will  have ballot access in all 50 states. They will select an Internet nominee through a nominating process. 6 qualified candidates will be ‘drafted” by the public. One lucky politician is going to get “the yellow brook road” to the White House.

   Yes, their is a Santa Claus after all ..just ” follow the money”!!!..The billionaires are lining up behind the 3rd party nominating platform called American Elect 2012. Hedge funds, big banks, oil money are all quietly waiting to take the presidential election private. The insiders choice for Americans Elect presidential candidate is Jeb Bush. Make no mistake, Jeb is running for the presidency…but not in the traditional sense. He will be the “draft” choice of AE2012. How could any patriotic American turn down a “set-up” like this……

 So, let’s  look at reality. Whether it’s Romney or Santorum it makes no difference. The Republican brand is forever damaged..but worry not despots..the 3rd party will fill the void. Romney is very weak in the southern and non-Mormon western states. The only candidate that is weaker that Romney in those states is Obama! You starting to get he picture?? In a 3-way battle for each states electoral votes, who do you think might fair the best in these states? Jeb Bush is idolized in Florida..and has tremendous support here. Obama is not very popular..and the days of the Jewish vote carrying Obama in Florida are over. Apprehension over Israel and Iran are going to neutralize the Jewish vote. The Hispanic vote will go Jeb ..big..and bi-partisian.

  So, Florida goes to Bush. Texas goes to Bush. In fact, I can’t think of a southern states that Bush wouldn’t capture. He will also take small population fly over states in the west.These states  will be the deciding states if this election goes back to the House of representatives.Why? If no candidate secures 50% of the electoral college…the president is selected by the house on a one state-one vote election. So Wyoming will have the same influence as New York!!! The senate has no say so whatsoever..they get the booby prize and select the Vice-president.Do the math. Obama will likely hold Illinois, New York and California..but it won’t matter if he doesn’t lock up 50%. Romney will win a handful of states…a few Eastern  states and a few Mormon hot spots.In a 3 way battle..if this is thrown back to the house of representatives, they will have no choice but to select Bush..as he will win a clear plurality of the states

Look for this election to go to the supreme court for final disposition. ..and guess what..the 5-to 4 decision that brought American Elect to life(UNLIMITED SUPER PAC $$) ..will surely render Jr. Bush the winner once again. This is a nightmare that is way too real..it’s no dream..history has away of repeating itself!!
