First, a president doesn’t have the power to unilaterally abolish the Electoral College.
Second, the Electoral College was put in place by the nation’s founders to ensure the minority had a voice. So, what Warren is now so loudly declaring is that in her version of America, the few or the one don’t matter. Only the mob should be counted.
“My goal is to get elected—but I plan to be the last American president to be elected by the Electoral College. I want my second term to be elected by direct vote,” Warren said during a campaign event in Marion, Iowa, on Sunday.
“I want to get rid of it,” she said. “I just think this is how a democracy should work. Call me old fashioned, but I think the person who gets the most votes should win.”
Warren’s anti-minority position has also been supported by fellow Democrat presidential candidates, Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg. Such a scenario would deliver nearly all the voting power to the urban centers (which of course are far-left bastions) while effectively shutting out the less populated rural parts of the nation. It is akin to only allowing White America, since they remain the majority of the population, the right to vote and locking out all other minorities.
Perhaps it’s no accident that Warren, Sanders, and Buttigieg are as white as a December snow. Not that it should matter, but it’s Warren who apparently thinks it does.
It should also be noted that Warren refers to the United States as a democracy when it’s actually a republic. The distinction is a critical one given the founders had a revulsion toward the dangers of mob rule whereby the tyranny of the many could overpower the rights of the few.
Warren and her Democrat cohorts are openly embracing tyranny.
