Democrat Introduces Bill To Eliminate The Electoral College

It took House Democrat Brad Sherman 5 seconds to introduce articles of impeachment against President Trump.

It took his colleague 10 seconds to do this.

Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen introduced a bill that would essentially eliminate the Electoral College. Who’s ready for the liberal coasts to make all the big calls? Steve is!

According to the press release:

Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09), a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee, introduced two Constitutional Amendments today on the opening day of the new Congress. The first would eliminate the Electoral College and provide for the direct election of the President and Vice President of the United States. The second would limit the presidential pardon power by prohibiting presidents from pardoning themselves, members of their families, members of their administrations and their campaign staff.

Translation: Democrats are still butthurt that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote.

“In two presidential elections since 2000, including the most recent one in which Hillary Clinton won 2.8 million more votes than her opponent, the winner of the popular vote did not win the election because of the distorting effect of the outdated Electoral College,” Cohen stated. “Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office. More than a century ago, we amended our Constitution to provide for the direct election of U.S. Senators. It is past time to directly elect our President and Vice President.”

As I’ve said before, if we didn’t have the Electoral College, states like New York and California would forever determine the outcome of the elections. That’s not fair to the other 48 states. The Electoral College is a safeguard against mob rule. It’s really that simple. I can’t believe we still have to remind liberal politicians of that.

I’m just gonna leave this here.
