Synopsis

Here at Beer and Politics, we discuss two of the world's most important issues: beer and politics. We believe both officials and ales, and porters and pundits should be held to the highest standards of thoughtfulness, consistency, and depth of character. Join us as we search for the perfect brew and promote a more perfect union.

  • Episode #2 - Bill OReilly and the Electoral College

    Episode #2 - Bill O'Reilly and the Electoral College

    02/06/2017 Duration: 38min

    Oh really, O'Reilly? Two beer loving, politically inclined friends discuss Bill O'Reilly's thoughts on Liberals and the Electoral College from a recent Talking Points Memo. Today's Beer: Diesel Punk Stout Bill O'Reilly's comments on the Electoral College: https://youtu.be/_0PFOgLHSVw Our summarized talking points: 1. Clinton wins the popular vote by 2.8 million - CA provides the entire margin (4.3 million). If the Electoral College is abolished, only big states/cities matter. This only benefits the Democrats as cities have heavy minority populations who vote Democrat. This would not be a “National” election. 2. The heart of Liberalism is Race. 3. Abolishing the Electoral College is all about race. The left views white privilege as an oppressive force, so white voters must be marginalized. 4. White men largely abandoned the Democrats and the Left blames racism and wanting to punish minorities to keep them down. 5. The way to change the way America is run is by taking voting power away from the white precincts.
