The Democrats are wasting no time in dismantling our Republic. This story comes from The Daily Wire.
Yesterday, the first day the in session for the new Congress, Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen introduced a bill to eliminate the electoral college. This is a sad illustration of the mindset of the Democrats. They only care about winning and nothing about representing all Americans. They either don’t understand how a Democratic Republic works or more likely, they do not care.
Representative Cohen (D-TN) who introduced the bill said “Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office”. And my answer is, no we don’t, not if we understand the purpose of the electoral college which is to prevent tyranny of the majority. Prager University explains it so well.
The blue states in the graphic below are those where Hillary Clinton won the most number of individual votes. She won the popular vote by a margin of 2.86 million.
In 2016 because of shear population numbers if we followed the popular vote, California & New York alone would have determined the election outcome. What about the people in all the other 48 states? Their voice doesn’t matter?
The Founders wisely created the Electoral College system so that one or 2 states alone would never be able to elect a president leaving all the rest unrepresented.
We haven’t heard the end of this. The amendment proposal introduced yesterday likely will fail, but the National Popular Vote or the NPV, is a much more dangerous movement gaining steam and does not require a constitutional amendment. It very likely could turn our Representative Republic into a Democracy where majority (as determined only by the number popular votes) rules. That’s the end of this country as we know it.
And BTW in just the first 36 hours of the “Pelosi: House: Articles of impeachment, a move to abolish the electoral college, comparisons of the president to Hitler, a nonstarter vote on the shutdown, profanity, a proposal for a 70% tax on the “wealthy”.
