On Saturday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortz the ignorant Socialist that is left of Lenin, stated she believes it is time to abolish the Electoral College. It should come as no shock because Democrats struggle with the Electoral College since they are coastal elites and ignore fly over nation.
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted her statement with an article written by Julia Loffe from GQ. The article was talking about how we need to remove the Electoral College because Presidents are winning elections and nominating Supreme Court Justices, while losing the popular vote. The Article is accurate that this system is not Democracy, but that’s because we are a Republic and the Electoral College is to prevent mob rule.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweet,
Many prominent Democrats have been calling for the abolishing the Electoral College system over the last couple years, including Hillary Clinton after she lost to Donald Trump in 2016.
The Case for Electoral College and why it is ignorant for any person to be opposed of the system.
The Electoral College is a system to prevent mob rule and prevent tyranny against the minority. It is also set in place to protect state rights and keep politicians from only focusing on the large populated states, while ignoring the small populated states.
Alexander Hamilton wrote Federalist #68 which was about the Electoral College system. Hamilton points out the system is used to prevent politicians from striking emotions in voters instead of policies by placing the true voting power in politically educated Congressmen. In today’s left they only use emotions to strike appeal to the voters which is what Hamilton intended to prevent with the Electoral College.
