AOC Comes Unglued, Says the Electoral College Is ‘Affirmative Action’ for Rural Americans

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THE ORIGINAL FULL STORY


The following article, AOC Comes Unglued, Says the Electoral College Is ‘Affirmative Action’ for Rural Americans, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Democrats hate the Electoral College because they don’t understand what it’s all about.

Preventing tyranny of the majority is crucial.

New Yorkers and Californians a few other large states shouldn’t get all the say, leaving residents of smaller states feeling as though their voice literally does not matter.

Had Hillary Clinton acquired the necessary electorals to win in 2016, Dems would be fighting to see it remain in place.

And yet, here we are.

Enter embattled rookie lawmaker, Alexandria O’Commie-Cortez…

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continued her verbal assault on the Electoral College, this time smearing the Constitutional system that guarantees big states don’t have undue influence in electing the president as an “electoral affirmative action” scheme for rural Americans.

I see Fox News is big mad about abolishing the electoral college.

So let’s talk about it.

1) If the GOP were the “silent majority” they claim, they wouldn’t be so scared of a popular vote.

They *know* they aren’t the majority. They rely on establishing minority rule for power.

2) This common claim about “if we don’t have the Electoral College then a handful of states will determine the presidency” is BS.
a. It’s the *EC itself* that breaks down power by state, pop vote decentralizes it

b. The EC makes it so a handful of states DO determine elections

3) LASTLY, this concept that the Electoral College is provides “fairness” to rural Americans over coastal states doesn’t hold any water whatsoever. First of all, virtually every state has rural communities. NY. California. Much of our states are rural.

But very importantly…

4) We do not give electoral affirmative action to any other group in America. Do Black Americans have their votes count more bc they have been disenfranchised for 100s of years? Do Reservations get an electoral vote? Does Puerto Rico and US territories get them? No. They don’t.

5) The Electoral College isn’t about fairness at all; it’s about empowering some voters over others.

Every vote should be = in America, no matter who you are or where you come from. The right thing to do is establish a Popular Vote. & GOP will do everything they can to fight it.

Lastly was No. 3 but she just keeps on babbling about how interior states shouldn’t matter and her NY votes are more important. NY, do us all a favor, Vote her out and stop the Socialist Movement.
