Tom Perez Says ‘Electoral College Is Not a Creation of the Constitution’ (It Is.)

Quote:
Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez incorrectly stated "the Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution" during a Tuesday night speech.

"The Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution," Perez said during a lecture at Indiana University Law School. "It doesn’t have to be there."

The Electoral College, a mechanism for indirect election of the president created by the Founding Fathers as a compromise between smaller states and larger states, is clearly laid out in Article II of the Constitution: "Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress."

Perez has previously stated that President Donald Trump "didn’t win" last November’s election because Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, but he has never denied the fact that it is part of the Constitution.

The DNC did not respond to an inquiry into whether Perez truly thinks the "Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution."

There are many educational resources available on the Internet that provide clear explanations of what is in the document, including many from the National Constitution Center, which was established by Congress to provide a "non-partisan … understanding of the Constitution among the American people."

"Rather than being elected directly by the people, the president is elected by members of the Electoral College, which is created by Article II, Section 1," it explains.

The left will never understand that their chosen candidate lost. And if she did, it must somebodies fault besides hers, the DNC, or their policies.

The Electoral College is embodied in the Constitution in Article 2, Section 1, and in the 12th Amendment. ... Though the term is never used in the Constitution itself, the electors that choose the President at each election are traditionally called a College.

And those on the left wonder why we are so fed up with their bull sh1t. A majority in the state, and a majority of the States is how the game is played.

Leave it to a racist left wing (my favorite word for them inserted here), like Perez, who is blatantly anti white.

The Democrats are fools. They keep proving it time after time.

This exactly why the Democrats are torn in two.

Most of them are minorities who have believe it is there right to become racist against white people, a George Soros backed idea to get them to vote for the left. If Hillary were POTUS the left would sweep this division under the rug for another four years. But to many White people say it for what it is, minorities turning racist. No room in the Democratic party, when racist minorities what white blood spilled for their problems.

The left will never win elections again until they offer up something other than racial hate. They have to have white votes, and until the racial hate ginned up by the left dies down, there will be no victories on the left.

You people did this to your selves, with George Soros's help. When are you going to quit taking money from Soros? Maybe if your party rejected him and his money, you might be able to recover from this.
