The Democrats are still bitter about Hillary losing. And they think they have an idea to solve that “pesky” Electoral College stumbling block.

Obviously, the best idea is to rid the country of it.

Hillary Clinton lost. We know that. But to Democrats and the Left? It just wasn’t fair that she lost.

“But the popular vote! She won the popular vote! She should have won! The Electoral College is a racist institution!”

At least, that is what the Left has been shouting since the worst candidate in U.S. presidential history sunk her own campaign by assuming she had some very important states * cough* Wisconsin *cough cough* in the bag.

Recently, states like Colorado and Delaware have begun amending their voting processes, awarding all of their electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote.

In order to spread this horrible policy to the rest of the country, several Democrats in the Senate will introduce in the near future an amendment to the Constitution. Its goal? The removal of the Electoral College and the destruction of our republic as it was founded.

These Democrats, Brian Schatz (D-HI), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), are expected to support a removal of the Electoral College. As you probably noted, Gillibrand is one of the Democrats running for president. There probably isn’t a specific reason she would be behind such a policy…

If Democrats understood the purpose of the Electoral College, well I’d assume they’d understand that removing it would be a terrible idea. But since we aren’t dealing with a group of politicians that is totally rational, I suppose that we could give them a bit of background.

The U.S. is a republic, meaning the Founding Fathers rejected the idea of democracy. Democracy is mob rule, where the will of the majority tramples the minority. The idea of democracy was instituted in the House of Representatives, and later to the Senate.

To avoid this, the Constitution was drafted to include safeguards from the tyranny of democracy. One of those safeguards was the Electoral College. Under this institution, small states would have just as much weight as large ones.

If the Electoral College didn’t exist, presidential candidates would only campaign in the most populous areas. Areas, which unsurprisingly, are largely Democrat run. Democrats and progressives talk as if their proposal to have every vote count by removing the Electoral College are lying. The only votes that will count are those in urban areas. Joe Farmer would never again have a say in choosing a president.

As Aristotle said “Republics decline into democracies and democracies degenerate into despotisms”. That is why we have a republic and we darn sure better keep it that way.
