AOC calls the Electoral College a 'scam,' says it has a 'racial injustice breakdown'

"The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown," Ocasio-Cortez said. "Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College effectively weighs white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a 'one person, one vote' system where all our votes are counted equally."

surely she isn't smart enough to have been a good bartender. Poor customers probably ended up sick and got her fired.

She's a stupid, nasty, belligerent opportunistic hatemonger.

If you didn't have the electoral college, it would negate the votes of every state that doesn't have a big population.

Every time the left sees what could be an advantage to them, they go all hell and high water for it.

Their trouble is, when the advantage changes, so does their phony stance on any issue.

Without digging into her comments, we could probably do something better than our current electoral college system

The founders rejected the election of a president by popular vote.

Liberals are not taught that  America is comprised of 50 smaller "countries" (states) that are united, each with their own governments, leaders,  and laws. The genius of the electoral college is that it assures  each state has a say so in the election of the president.

The EC guarantees that the  president would be selected  by a wide diversity of people from coast to coast, and not just a bunch of dimwit liberals from Calif and NY.

which proves my point exactly....

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Electoral_College

from google:

"What is the advantage of the Electoral College?

The advantage of the electoral college is that it promotes fairness from a regional perspective. Individual votes count, but in a way that is represented by states. This prevents 2-3 very large states from overwhelming the popular vote count so that a greater portion of the country can be represented by the government."

 

"Why did they create the Electoral College?

The Electoral College was created for two reasons. The first purpose was to create a buffer between the population and the selection of a President. ... The founding fathers were afraid of direct election to the Presidency. They feared a tyrant could manipulate public opinion and come to power."

 

"What is the purpose of the Electoral College?

The Electoral College is a process, not a place. The founding fathers established it in the Constitution as a compromise between election of the President by a vote in Congress and election of the President by a popular vote of qualified citizens.

How does the Electoral College work for dummies?

The Electoral College consists of 538 electors. ... A majority of 270 electoral votes is required to redeem the presidency. Every state is given a number of votes equal to the number of senators and representatives in the U.S. Congress.Feb 3, 2017"

The only thing short sighted democrats like her think about is that lately the electoral college hasn't helped them win elections so they want to get rid of it. And this gal's argument against everything is always the same old "racist" broken record. The electoral college is racial injustice. 

Actually kudos to the one democrat governor in Nevada who vetoed the national popular voted bill recently. He took some time to think about the long term effects:

"After thoughtful deliberation, I have decided to veto Assembly Bill 186," Sisolak said in a statement.

“Once effective, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact could diminish the role of smaller states like Nevada in national electoral contests and force Nevada’s electors to side with whoever wins the nationwide popular vote, rather than the candidate Nevadans choose.”
