2020 Election Counters

A True Patriot Will Not Lie, Cheat, Steal or Tolerate Those Who Do

2022 Senate Election Counter (12/9/22)

12/9: CNN projects Warnock will win Georgia Race. Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema becomes an Independent
Democrats with three Independents now have a majority with 51 seats to 49 Republican seats.

A Proposal to Save Social Security (3/1/23)

  • The simplist and fairest way to save Social Security should require using general tax revenues to cover the federal assistance benefits that are included in Social Security. This is based on one of our basic tax principles that all federal assistance should be funded from general tax revenues. Another principle is that intergeneration transfers should be minimized. This may mean using gift and estate taxes to help fund Social Security retirement benefits.
  • Social Security should exclude disability benefits. Disability is more appropriate to be considered as a health condition. The cost of disabilities that are related to military service should be funded by the Veterans Administration.

Our New Focus on Corruption in our Election, Immigration and Tax Systems (12/26/22)

The Major Threats to Our Democracy (11/13/22)

  • The Republican attempt to change the U.S. Constitution
  • The Republican attempt to elect election deniers to Secretary of State positions in critical states
  • The current U.S. Supreme Court
  • The Most Dangerous Anti-Democratic Big-Tech Billionaire Peter Thiel
    • Arizona Senatorial Candidate Blake Masters
    • Ohio Senatorial Candidate J. D. Vance
  • Donald Trump and Those Who Tolerate Him
    • Ted Cruz
    • Lindsay Graham
    • Mitch McConnell
    • Kevin McCarthy
  • The Most Insane Policy on Welcoming Illegal Immigrants
    • Many skilled legal immigrants provide a net benefit to the U.S.
    • Most illegal immigrants with families provide a major net burden to the U.S. The burden falls mainly on state and local taxpayers. For this reason, the Federal government should reimburse the S&L governments for the costs of providing services for these families.
    • The annual public cost of educating a child varies from around $7,000 in Utah to over $25,000 in many states
    • Children born to a woman who is illegal should assume the citizenship of the mother and not be granted U.S. citizenship.
  • The 12th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
    • What happens if no presidential candidate gets the current required 270 Electoral Votes? This is more likely to occur with the viable candidates from third parties.
      According the 12th Amendment it is decided in the House of Representatives.
      "But in choosing the President, the votes shall be taken by states, the representation from each state having one vote; a quorum for this purpose shall consist of a member or members from two-thirds of the states, and a majority of all the states shall be necessary to a choice."
    • This approach is fraught with many problems. Why should small states be given the same power to elect as large states?
  • The Current Approach for Determining Congressional Districts
  • The Lack of an Unique ID for every U.S. Citizen
  • The Lack of an Unique ID for everyone who is physically Present in the U.S.

Welcome to ElectoralCollege.Org (7/10/22)

Welcome to the 2022 edition of the ElectoralCollege.Org website that has featured since 2004 two counters for calculating the electoral votes and winners of election contests for Senators during the Presidential Election years. Since 2004 this website has updated the Senate Election Counter every two years.

A PDF file copy of our initial 2022 Senate Election Counter will appear in the top right panel after Labor Day.

At the present time there are five Republicans retiring and one Democrat. The retiring Republcans are in Alabama, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania. The lone retiring Democrat is 82-year old Patrick Leahy of Vermont. Republican Charles Grassley of Kansas, who will be 89 on September 17, is seeking to be relected this November. The oldest Democrat is Diane Feinstein of California. She just turned 89 on June 22. Here term expires in 2024.

For the Democrats to retain the majority of seats in the Senate it is critical that they hold onto their seats in Arizona and Georgia. We hope they win in Ohio and Pennsylvania. For the sake of democracy we oppose the Peter Thiel and Donald Trump backed J.D. Vance in Ohio. You know Donald Trump but Peter Thiel is probably the most undemocratic person you have never heard of. More on him in a future post.

According to an opinion published in the prestigious Scientific American Dr. Oz Shouldn't Be a Senator--or a Doctor. He shouldn't also be considered qulified to run as Senator in Pennsylvania because Dr Mehmet Oz is also a citizen of Turkey and long-time resident of Cliffside Park, NJ.

On October 7, 2015 it was reported Dr. Oz Picks Up Pedigreed Palm Beach Estate for $18 million. On May 13, 2020, Frank Cerabino of the Palm Beach Post wrote Oz apparently lives in another state (New Jersey), not at his in-laws address in Philadelphia or in the stately oceanfront mansion he owns in Palm Beach.

Periodically, hopefully weekly, the new ElectoralCollege.Org website will post our comments on many issues that should concern many Americans. Our primary interest is increasing the standard of living of all legal residents and citizens of the United States.
