Default House Dems Introduce Bill To ‘Abolish Electoral College’

The Constitutional destruction begins...

House Dems Introduce Bill To ‘Abolish Electoral College’

Quote:
Introduced on January 11th and referred to the House Judiciary Committee, the resolution proposes an “amendment to the Constitution of the United States to abolish the electoral college and to provide for the direct election of the President and Vice President of the United States.”

Authors of the bill include Rep. Cohen, Rep. Zoe Lofgren, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, Rep. Julia Brownley, Peter DeFazio, Rep. Adriano Espaillat, Rep. John Garamendi, and Rep. Jim Cooper.

Before revealing what the constitutional amendment would look like, the bill rebukes the electoral college as created in “an era of limited nationwide communication and information sharing” and resting on “an antiquated theory that citizens will have a better chance of knowing about electors from their home States than about Presidential candidates from out of State”

“The development of mass media and the internet has made information about Presidential candidates easily accessible to United States citizens across the country and around the world,” the bill also notes.

The left has for years been working to dumb down our society through the educational system. It appears they have been successful in this endeavor as these far left Reps should be held in contempt of the Constitution by their own constituents. That fact that their constituents are not beating down their office doors, demanding their resignation is proof that our society is littered with brain dead voters.

The electoral college was an amendment (#12) ratified in 1803.
However, I personally, am against repealing it.

What?

created in “an era of limited nationwide communication and information sharing” and resting on “an antiquated theory that citizens will have a better chance of knowing about electors from their home States than about Presidential candidates from out of State.

That is why they believe the electoral college was designed?

I thought it was designed so that the entire country was not ruled by the over populated areas.
