Congressman Steve Cohen of Tennessee wants to make sure voters in his state have no voice in Presidential elections.
See, Steve Cohen wants to abolish the Electoral College.
Which pretty much means he wants New York and California to determine who will be President of the United States.
Sorry Tennesseans. Your votes – along with every other non-populous state — won’t count.
There’s a reason we elect a President by Electoral votes and not a nationwide popular vote. Our system of government is set up as a Republic, not a pure democracy. Our Constitution prevents the Tyranny of the Majority by ensuring that the populous states are not steamrolling over the rest of the country.
Because of the Electoral College every state in the union is involved in determining who will be the President of all fifty states.
It isn’t “outdated.” And it certainly isn’t “unfair.”
What is unfair is forcing the rest of us to live under the leadership that voters in California and New York decide we will have.
I mean why bother having the other 48 states vote at all?
I can guarantee you if the most populous states in the country were overwhelmingly conservative, Steve Cohen wouldn’t dream of abolishing the Electoral College. Instead, he’d be howling about the Tyranny of the Majority and the unfairness of it all.
You know I’m right.
But for years Democrats have tried to turn the rest of the country into a far-Left shithole like California. And they haven’t been able to do it.
So they think abolishing the Electoral College is their way to achieve that long sought-after goal.
Because when you can’t remake America by following the limits set by Constitution, those limits have to go.
That pretty much sums up the Democrat Party in a nutshell, doesn’t it?
Frankly I’m surprised that a Congressman from New York or California isn’t leading the charge to disenfranchise the other 48 states. After all, it is in their state’s best interests to do it.
Instead, it is being done by a Congressman from one of the very states that would be screwed if the Electoral College was abolished.
As if we needed another example how little Democrat Representatives care about the people they supposedly “represent.”
If I were a Tennessean, I’d be melting the phone lines in Washington telling this butt-ugly prick to go pound sand.
