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.

“The actionable statements were published by you and your political corporation,” Greene’s attorney L. Lin Wood wrote in a letter to Cowan and his Congressional campaign. “The actionable statements were negligently published and were published with actual malice, that is, with actual knowledge of falsity or with a reckless disregard for truth or falsity.”

Wood is referencing Cowan’s campaign ad alleging that her company did not use E-Verify, a federal program designed to keep illegal immigrants from obtaining employment.

However, Wood provided documented proof that her company did in fact use E-Verify to make sure illegals were not given jobs over American workers.

As you can see from the screenshot below, Taylor Construction clearly uses E-Verify

“Rather than confine yourself to a robust debate on issues for the benefit of the voters, you crossed the legal line and wrongfully published false accusations against Ms. Greene and Taylor Commercial, Inc. The false accusations made by you on behalf of your campaign to discredit your political opponent unlawfully exceed the permissible parameters of political speech and makes you, and your campaign, liable for damages for defamation,” Wood asserted in the letter.

Wood is demanding that Cowan retract the ad and issue a public statement apologizing to Greene for making false accusations, or he will likely file a defamation lawsuit against Cowan and his campaign.

The allegedly defamatory campaign ad released by Cowan can be found here (at least, for now):

Big League Politics has reported on Greene for her constitutional campaign ads putting ANTIFA thugs on notice, which have been censored by Facebook.

“I have a message for ANTIFA terrorists,” she said as she locked and loaded her rifle in the controversial campaign ad. “Stay out of Northwest Georgia. You won’t burn our churches, loot our businesses or destroy our homes. It’s time to take our country back, save America, stop socialism!”

The GOP establishment has already set their sights on Greene, as she they know she will be a lawmaker who they will not be able to control. She refuses to apologize or back down as they levy their attacks.

“I will not let them whip me into submission. And the voters of Northwest Georgia will not let the DC Swamp and the Fake News Media tell them who to vote for,” Greene said in a Facebook post.

Greene is considered the front-runner to beat Cowan during the GOP runoff primary election for Georgia’s 14th Congressional seat. The election is scheduled to take place on Aug. 11.
