Democrats have been talking about getting rid of the Electoral College ever since Pres. Trump won in 2016 and now one of the losers of 2018 is joining the fight.
Failed Gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is once again in the headlines for pushing the narrative of ripping up the Electoral College during presidential elections. Abrams is still defending her refusal to concede last year’s Georgia gubernatorial election. She argues that adhering to the democratic norm of conceding to a victorious opponent would make her “complicit” in a “rigged” system. Woman, you lost!
No matter what Abrams is shoved on television to say about politics, she is a loser and the way she has acted doesn’t seem as if she will ever be redeemed. Getting rid of the Electoral College?
That pesky Constitution interferes with the Democrats’ goals every time. Fortunately, no Federal Judge can overturn the Electoral College voting system found in our Constitution. It will take an amendment and good luck getting all the small states to ratify that.
Hayes: “There have been some calls to get rid of the Electoral College. There’s been some controversy over this week, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calling for it, the president emailing his supporters about how terrible an idea that was. Do you favor that?”
Abrams: “Absolutely. The Electoral College was not designed to make certain that people in small states weren’t subject to the tyranny of urban areas. That wasn’t the conversation at the time. It was because those in power did not believe that working people had the intellectual capacity to directly elect the leader of the free world. We have long passed that time, and it’s time for direct election and popular vote.”
ABRAMS BELIEVES IN IDENTITY POLITICS: Failed GA Candidate Stacey Abrams’ Case For Using Identity Politics — We Win!
The Electoral College was established to prevent the smaller states from being run over by the more populated states. And the President of the United States had nowhere near as much power related to world affairs in the late 1700s as he does now. Abrams is either ignorant or a liar. I’ll leave it to all y’all to decide which is correct.
