Democrats hate the Electoral College because they don’t understand what it’s about.

Preventing tyranny of the majority is crucial.

New Yorkers and Californians and people from a few other large states shouldn’t get all the say, leaving residents of smaller states feeling as though their voice literally does not matter.

Had Hillary Clinton acquired the necessary electorals to win in 2016, Dems would be fighting to see the system remain in place.

Enter embattled rookie lawmaker, Alexandria O’Commie-Cortez…

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continued her verbal assault on the Electoral College, this time smearing the Constitutional system that guarantees big states don’t have undue influence in electing the president as an “electoral affirmative action” scheme for rural Americans.

I see Fox News is big mad about abolishing the electoral college.

So let’s talk about it.

1) If the GOP were the “silent majority” they claim, they wouldn’t be so scared of a popular vote.

They *know* they aren’t the majority. They rely on establishing minority rule for power.

2) This common claim about “if we don’t have the Electoral College then a handful of states will determine the presidency” is BS.
a. It’s the *EC itself* that breaks down power by state, pop vote decentralizes it

b. The EC makes it so a handful of states DO determine elections

3) LASTLY, this concept that the Electoral College is provides “fairness” to rural Americans over coastal states doesn’t hold any water whatsoever. First of all, virtually every state has rural communities. NY. California. Much of our states are rural.

But very importantly…

4) We do not give electoral affirmative action to any other group in America. Do Black Americans have their votes count more bc they have been disenfranchised for 100s of years? Do Reservations get an electoral vote? Does Puerto Rico and US territories get them? No. They don’t.

5) The Electoral College isn’t about fairness at all; it’s about empowering some voters over others.

Every vote should be = in America, no matter who you are or where you come from. The right thing to do is establish a Popular Vote. & GOP will do everything they can to fight it.

VIDEO: Biden Comes Unglued When Fox News Reporter Asks Him About Ukrainian Scandal

Not a good look for you, bro!!

You have to hand it to Joe Biden. When confronted about his alleged Ukrainian scandal, the former VP dodged, deflected, and blamed President Trump like he had that card up his sleeve the entire time. Check this out… From Fox News: Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden exploded on Saturday when Fox News reporter Peter Doocy confronted him over his Ukraine scandal, claiming that he did nothing wrong and that the media should be looking into President Donald Trump. Doocy’s question for Biden centered around Biden’s admission that he used his position as Vice President to shut down a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating a company that was employing Biden’s son. Doocy pondered, “Mr. Vice President, how many times have you ever spoken to your son about his overseas business dealings?” Biden screeched, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. And here’s what I know, I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him the question, why is he on the phone with a foreign leader trying to intimidate a foreign leader, if that’s what happened, that appears to be what happened, you should be looking at Trump.” But there’s a problem… https://twitter.com/dmartosko/status/1175480222164160512?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175480222164160512&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1175471237138485249?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175471237138485249&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra Trump weighed in… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1175392716110401543?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175392716110401543&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra All we hear about from the left is Russia, Russia, Russia. And yet, years later, there is still zero proof the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. However, the evidence against the Hillary Clinton campaign continues to mount. Now, this… From The Hill: Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump…

WATCH: Biden Wants to Put Male Prisoners Who Identify As Women In Prison With Female Convicts

Hmm. What could be the problem there!?

With each passing day, Democrats become sillier and sillier. Saturday appeared to belong to Joe Biden, who may or may not still be the liberal party frontrunner. Check out Joe’s thoughts on mentally ill male convicts who think they are women… Joe Biden – Male convicts that identify as female will be housed with women. “In prison the determination should be that your sexual identity is defined by what you say it is not what in fact the prison says it is.” https://twitter.com/DaveNYviii/status/1175229023603089409?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175229023603089409&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwoke-joe-biden-says-put-male-prisoners-who-identify-as-women-into-female-prison-pop-because-thats-totally-sane-video%2F Check out this story Biden swears by, even though it is completely made up… From Daily Wire: Last Friday, former Vice President Joe Biden told a rapt audience in New Hampshire a poignant story revolving around a Navy captain who rappelled down a 60-foot ravine to rescue a fallen comrade, but rebuffed Biden’s attempt to pin a Silver Star on his chest because his daring actions to save the soldier came too late. There was one problem: Biden made the story up. The Washington Post reports that Biden told the story of a four-star general who asked Biden, when he was vice-president, to take a dangerous trip to Kunar province in Afghanistan so he could put the Silver Star on the chest of a Navy captain who had rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and brought back the body of an American soldier. […] Addressing the silent crowd, Biden concluded, “This is the God’s truth. My word as a Biden.” Liar, liar, pants on fire. It’s time for Joe to concede. That’s saying something, considering this guy was the Democrat frontrunner. It’s looking more and more grim for the former VP who has yet to be endorsed by Barack Obama.
