Hidden Agenda why AOC Agitated & called Electoral College a “SCAM”, Exposed!!
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., has put forward another scam proposition that is meaningless. Last week, in a lengthy sequence of impractical, unachievable and dangerous thoughts, the radical democratic socialist suggested yet another: the abolition of the Electoral College.
Before explaining why this is a very bad idea, let me give some breaking news to Ocasio-Cortez, who apparently was absent the day her high school social studies teacher explained how the Constitution is amended.
The breaking news– It is nearly impossible to amend the Constitution to abolish the Electoral College. That’s because a constitutional amendment needs the support of two-thirds of U.S. House and Senate for starters. It must then either be enacted in 38 states by the legislatures or by a constitutional convention request by at least 34 states.
The abolition of Electoral College would harm small-scale states and assist large-scale states. There are many more states with tiny populations than big ones, so there’s no way Congress leaders and government legislatures would vote for an amendment to decrease their states ‘ significance in the presidential election process.
Hey, but Ocasio-Cortez has never let reality get in the way of her fantasies – like her belief that socialism, the Green New Deal and other ideas that would destroy our economy and millions of jobs are just wonderful.
In her latest outburst, Ocasio-Cortez called the Electoral College a scam that perpetuates racism.
“Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College effectively weighs white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all our voters are counted equally,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Ocasio-Cortez is one of many in the Democratic Party who have called for the Electoral College system to be replaced with a national popular vote, including radical Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who are both seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.
But in truth, the Electoral College isn’t a “scam.” It was carefully designed by the framers of our Constitution because they were concerned that a national popular vote to elect the president would grant far too much power to larger states and urban areas. And more than two centuries after the Constitution was first written, their arguments remain as astute and important as ever.
If Ocasio-Cortez and the Democratics succeed in abolition, they would significantly increase the importance of heavily populated states during presidential elections.
To illustrate just how absurd things could get, consider the following scenario presented by Dan McLaughlin in the National Review: “Picture a two-candidate election with 2016’s turnout. The Republican wins 54 percent of the vote in 48 states, losing only California, New York, and D.C. That’s a landslide victory, right? But then imagine that the Republican nominee who managed this feat was so unpopular in California, New York, and D.C. that he or she loses all three by a 75 percent-to-25 percent margin. That 451-87 landslide in the Electoral College, built on eight-point wins in 48 states, would also be a popular-vote defeat, with 50.7 percent of the vote for the Democrat to 49.3 percent for the Republican.”
The fictitious situation of McLaughlin is of course precisely what Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats want— a America in which two far left states like California and New York could efficiently choose Presidents. Sounds like a genuine “scam” to me now.
One of Electoral College’s main purposes is to ensure more equal footing for smaller, rural states– and that’s precisely what it does. In our present scheme, applicants are campaigning in every country where there’s a near competition, whether big or small, rural or urban, demographically diverse or homogeneous.
