Elizabeth Warren Calls For Getting Rid Of Electoral College


Yea, get rid of the electoral college so that a couple of states like California and New York can rule all of America. Sounds like an unfair moronic liberal plan to me.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States. The electoral college is part of that document. Perhaps she should resign from the Senate in protest and begin a campaign to amend the Constitution.

These are scary times. Democracy is no more than a mob. All the freedoms we enjoy today especially those for women and minorities are a product of living in a representative republic.

Free Beacon:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) said Monday she supported eliminating the Electoral College in presidential elections.

Speaking at a CNN town hall in Jackson, Mississippi, Warren laid out her proposed voting reforms to Democratic primary voters.

“We need to make sure that every vote counts,” she said, before going on to say in presidential election years, candidates ignore states like Mississippi, as well as blue states like California and Massachusetts, because they’re not battleground states.

“My view is that every vote matters, and the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting, and that means get rid of the Electoral College,” Warren said, to cheers and applause. More

Warren said that she would back a plan to do away with the Electoral College in a CNN town hall event with Jake Tapper.

QUESTION: Thank you. Thank you for being here. Welcome to Jackson, Mississippi. Yeah. So voter disenfranchisement is real. In Mississippi, there are 23 felonies that once convicted ban a person from voting for the rest of their lives, literally limiting their citizenship and right to democracy. Moreover, residents’ access to voting is limited by archaic voter registration processes and limited voting formats. How will you expand voting rights to the formerly incarcerated, ensure online voter registration, and non-excuse early voting?

SEN. ELIZABETH WARREN (D-MA): All right.

Great question. But can I go you one bigger?

QUESTION: Yeah.

WARREN: And that is, I believe we need a constitutional amendment that protects the right to vote for every American citizen and to make sure that vote gets counted.

We need to put some federal muscle behind that. And we need to repeal every one of the voter suppression laws that is out there right now.

And I’ll tell you one more. We need to make sure that every vote counts. And, you know, I want to — I want to push that right here in Mississippi, because I think this is an important point. You know, come a general election, presidential candidates don’t come to places like Mississippi.

QUESTION: That’s right.

WARREN: Yeah. They also don’t come to places like California and Massachusetts, right? Because we’re not the “battleground states.” Well, my view is that every vote matters. And the way we can make that happen is that we can have national voting. And that means get rid of the Electoral College and everybody counts.

Everybody.

TAPPER: I want to…

WARREN: I think everybody ought to have to come and ask for your vote. What do you think? Yeah.
