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.

Presidential Debate Commission Considers Major Rule Changes, Which May Include Muting Trump’s Microphone

They are desperate to protect Joe Biden.

Published

President Donald Trump smacked down former vice president Joe Biden so brutally in last night’s presidential debate that the commission is considering changing the rules to give Biden a leg up in future debates.

The Commission on Presidential Debates made the announcement on Wednesday that they are going to be changing the rules of the game to hurt President Trump, which may even include the ability to mute Trump’s microphone.

They issued a statement saying that the debate “made clear that additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues.”

President Trump, who was frequently double-teamed by Biden and biased globalist moderator Chris Wallace, was forced to fight two men during the debate, but this wasn’t enough to give Biden the advantage. This is why they are considering changing the rules in the middle of the game.

Of course, the Commission on Presidential Debates praised Wallace for attacking Trump and propping up Biden throughout the debate.

“The CPD will be carefully considering the changes that it will adopt and will announce those measures shortly,” the organization said. “The Commission is grateful to Chris Wallace for the professionalism and skill he brought to last night’s debate and intends to ensure that additional tools to maintain order are in place for the remaining debates.”

They have assured CBS News that “we are going to be making changes” before the next debate. This is clearly designed to hurt Trump and bias the proceedings even further against the president.

Tim Murtaugh, communications director for the Trump campaign, is calling out the commission for their partisan and reprehensible behavior.

“They’re only doing this because their guy got pummeled last night,” he said in a statement. “President Trump was the dominant force and now Joe Biden is trying to work the refs. They shouldn’t be moving the goalposts and changing the rules in the middle of the game.”

Kate Bedingfield, deputy campaign manager for Biden’s campaign, is counting on the rules being changed to help Biden.

“He’ll be focused on answering questions from the voters there, under whatever set of rules the Commission develops to try to contain Donald Trump’s behavior,” Bedingfield said in a statement. “The president will have to choose between responding to voters about questions for which he has offered no answers in this campaign — or repeating last night’s unhinged meltdown.”

Big League Politics reported on how Wallace constantly interrupted President Trump and served as a surrogate for Biden while he was supposed to be the non-biased moderator:

The Donald Trump campaign has indicated that ‘neutral’ moderator Chris Wallace interrupted President Trump a whopping 76 times during Tuesday’s debate. Wallace, who is known for harboring liberal sympathies, was widely criticized by conservatives for his partiality in moderating the contest…

It appears that Biden actually spent more time talking during the debate than Trump did, despite Wallace consistently maintaining that Trump was breaking the rules.

Wallace continually invoked the rules that allot two minutes for each answer to each candidate, but declined to interrupt Biden when he violated them. He flouted neutrality most during the ‘open discussion’ segments, waiting for a moment when Biden appeared flustered or challenged by the President to change the subject.

Wallace conveniently changed the subject when Trump pressed Biden to identify any law enforcement union that endorsed him…

Wallace also provided the same convenient handicap when Biden described the terrorist group ANTIFA as an ‘idea.’…

Biden assailed Trump with a hail of personally charged insults, calling him a ‘clown,’ a ‘racist,’ a ‘fool,’ and a ‘puppy.’ Wallace did not object to any of the character attacks utilized by Biden…

At this point, if Biden refuses to a contest with a moderator unaffiliated with a mainstream corporate media outlet, just do the debates without a moderator. Have the two candidates speak in an open-ended fashion without the use of a convenient handicap to cut off any content that might prove harmful to the Democrat’s electoral prospects.

The electoral integrity for November’s vote is already severely jeopardized. President Trump might want to consider suspending the elections in order to protect the Republic from the anti-democratic coup that is in progress.
