COMMON SENSE: The origin of the Electoral College is a perfect example of just how ignorant Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, and several other Democratic aspirants to be President are about American history. They stir up Leftists by advocating something they cannot possibly achieve, which they either know and disregard or are genuinely ignorant about. Either way, they are doing our nation a terrible disservice.
During the days of the Articles of Confederation, after the Revolutionary War, there were thirteen states or commonwealths that acted almost like thirteen different nations. Because this was unworkable, and because this made trade with European nations cumbersome and unappealing, the thirteen willingly gave up their sovereignty to be united. This created the United States of America.
Ever since, when a territory willingly gave up its independence to join the United States, like the original thirteen did, including the sovereign nation of Texas, they were promised representation in both houses of Congress, with each representative or senator having a vote in the Electoral College. This means the Electoral College is an essential ingredient in our representative democracy.
This is where our concept of representative government originated, and it cannot be abandoned simply because Pocahontas or Spartacus thinks it’s a good idea. It would require a Constitutional Amendment, which isn’t going to happen. Smaller states will never give up their voice or their clout to California, New York, or even Texas.
This is nothing more than Progressive nonsense. It would destroy our constitutional republic. Perhaps it could even dissolve our beloved country all together. I just thought you would like to know about this.
