Elizabeth Warren Reveals Hair Brained Plot to Dissolve Electoral College

Elizabeth Warren’s plot to end the electoral college is a politically impossible smack in the face to the Midwest.

Elizabeth Warren End Electoral College

Democrat presidential candidate and 1/1024 Native American woman Elizabeth Warren advocated dissolving the electoral college during her CNN Town Hall on Monday night.

While on a confusing rant about ending voter suppression laws, of which she named none, Warren went on to advocate removing the electoral college in a misguided attempt to make politicians campaign in states like Mississippi and California.

Warren said that “We need to make sure that every vote counts, and you know 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 like Mississippi,” adding that “They also don’t come to places like California and Massachusetts. Because we’re not the battleground states.”

She concluded, “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 every vote counts.”

She is wrong for multiple reasons.

As President Donald J. Trump frequently points out during public events and on Twitter, the electoral college is designed to prevent candidates from only campaigning in major population centers. Without the electoral college, it would become good strategy for candidates to spend the majority of their time in the large cities in New York, Florida, Texas, and California, and neglect the entire rest of the country.

With a popular vote, the entire Midwest, which is already less likely to vote for Democrats due to its strong traditional values, would be totally ignored in presidential elections. Apparently Warren has no interest in courting these voters.

Additionally, the policy is so far fetched it is never likely to happen. It would require amending the United States Constitution, something that is rarely done in modern times, as doing so requires 3/4 of all states to consent to the ratification. This means 38 of the 50 states would all need to agree to stripping themselves of enormous influence and handing it to California, New York, Texas, and Florida.

According to Econlib.org, the number of small population states with important electoral votes, who would likely never want to see their fleeting power utterly demolished, numbers at 15.

Econlib.org wrote:

Number of states (including D.C.) with the minimum of 3: 8–Alaska, D.C., Delaware, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont, and Wyoming.
Number of states with 4: 5–Hawaii, Idaho, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island.

That’s a total of 13. Of course, D.C. is not a state, so we really have 12, which is not enough to block. But there are three states with 5 electoral votes: West Virginia, Nebraska, and New Mexico. So the total number of states with 5 or fewer electoral votes is 15. They are clearly a blocking coalition. All of them would lose power in deciding the presidency if the electoral college were eliminated.

This incredibly mundane and obvious reality suggests Warren is simply attempting to provide red meat to the frothing Democrat masses. In doing so, however, she is pushing her candidacy and the Democrat Party further away from the Midwest and Rust Belt voters they lost in 2016.

New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol

Order Must be Restored

Published

on

On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests  escalated at the United States Capitol.

The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. 

The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:

The New York Young Republican Club consistently condemned lawlessness and disorder throughout 2020 perpetrated by Radical Left BLM and Antifa activists. We called out the Fake News Media and Democrat politicians who inculcated a culture of acceptance for “mostly peaceful protestors” who violated private property rights and destroyed livelihoods.

Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.

We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.

U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly. 

On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
