Dems want to eliminate EC

So, it appears that the Dems are already showing their true colors for the new Congress session, by introducing a bill to eliminate the Electoral College and elect Presidents by the popular vote.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/39931...-ryan-saavedra

And the reason why? Because Hillary lost. Yes, they actually said that.

Quote:
"In two presidential elections since 2000, including the most recent one in which Hillary Clinton won 2.8 million more votes than her opponent, the winner of the popular vote did not win the election because of the distorting effect of the outdated Electoral College," Cohen said. "Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office. More than a century ago, we amended our Constitution to provide for the direct election of U.S. Senators. It is past time to directly elect our President and Vice President.”
Frankly, I think we need to get rid of the popular vote elections for Senators and allow the states to appoint them again. There's a reason the framers designed it this way, so that the people had a voice in the House and the states had a voice in the Senate.

I doubt this will go anywhere, but it's worth noting what the Dems are wanting to achieve. If they managed to get this through, then all our votes in "flyover country" would be drowned out by LA, SF, NY and a few other major cities.
