Democrats continue to prove that if you can’t win an election, the next best thing is to change the Constitution to ensure you win the next one.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., a 2020 candidate for president, said during a CNN town hall Monday evening we should end the Electoral College “because every vote matters.”
Nearly two and half years after President Donald Trump trounced failed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, gaining 304 Electoral College votes to her 227, Democrats are still distraught because Clinton had more popular votes, and they want to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.
So they embark on a campaign of deceit and disinformation to undermine one of the bedrock principles that shaped the founding of this nation.
Warren was responding to a question on voter’s rights when she pushed the divisive party line about voter suppression, calling for a repeal of laws intent on ensuring the integrity of our elections — much like with our borders, Democrats want wide open, unencumbered access to the ballot box.
“I believe we need a Constitutional amendment that protects the right to vote for every American citizen and to make sure that vote gets counted,” the lawmaker said.
She then turned her attention to the Electoral College, and used the location of the town hall, Jackson, Mississippi, to undermine the wisdom of our Founding Fathers — never mind that the process was put in place to protect the smaller states from being subjected to the whims of larger, more populous states!
To protect the country from direct democracy, which is what Warren and her fellow Democrats are proposing with their stranglehold on the more populous urban areas in the country.
“And you know, I want to push that right here in Mississippi. Because I think this is an important point,” Warren said.
She then offers some logic her very appearance at the event disputes. A logic that defies the modern age of technology, where the world has become so small that it can fit in the palm of your hand via a smartphone.
“You know, come a general election, presidential candidates don’t come to places like Mississippi,” Warren continued. “Yeah. They also don’t come to places like California and Massachusetts, right? Because we’re not the battleground states. Well, my view is that every vote matters. And the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting and that means get rid of the electoral college.”
Except every vote won’t matter.
California, a solidly blue state, has more residents than the bottom 20 states in the country combined — with the majority of these states, to include Mississippi, being red states.
Which means one state can essentially offset the votes of almost half the country.
A movement to override the Electoral College has been gaining steam since President Trump was elected. Last week, Colorado signed a pact to give away its votes (essentially) to California and New York. Delaware was the latest state to do the same on Monday.
Democratic Gov. Jared Polis has signed a law that adds Colorado's 9 Electoral College votes to the National Popular Vote Compact. Once Dem govs in Delaware & New Mexico sign bills that their legislatures passed this week, the compact will have 189 EVs https://t.co/8CyMw9slPf pic.twitter.com/bvs7FoVEhN
