Senate Democrats to introduce constitutional amendment
To abolish Electoral College

quote:

WASHINGTON — Leading Democratic senators are expected to introduce a constitutional amendment Tuesday to abolish the Electoral College, adding momentum to a long-shot idea that has been gaining steam among 2020 presidential candidates.


I hope this is an April Fool's joke

Good luck getting 3/4ths of the states to ratify. Smaller states would be voting to remove their voices. Just dumb.

"But I would rather see it, where you went with simple votes. You know, you get 100 million votes, and somebody else gets 90 million votes, and you win. There’s a reason for doing this. Because it brings all the states into play. "

- Some dope. Probably a Democrat.

The ill informed and those who wish to centralize all power are against it.

Our President was once against it, but once he became enlightened and understood its true purpose, he supported it.

But go ahead, try to flame the board, and post a couple of years old tweets from Trump.

It’s going to be fun watching their heads explode when Trump wins the popular vote in 2020.

FIFY.

So what's fair, or moral, about the Electoral College? It should be abolished, like, back before the Y2K election.
