It’s weird how the Democrats complain about the Electoral College when their person does not win.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) not only described the Electoral College as a scam but screamed RACISM.

She screeched out her rant on an Instagram story. From National Review:

“We’re coming to you live from the Electoral College,” the New York Democrat said in a video on Instagram, which featured her driving along a sparsely populated highway in what appears to be a desert somewhere in the western part of the country. “Many votes here, as you can see. Very efficient way to choose leadership of the country. I mean I can’t think of any other way, can you?”

The freshman congresswoman went on to cite a New York magazine story titled, “Here’s Every Defense of the Electoral College — and Why They’re All Wrong.”

“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,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Could you imagine if we had this kind of democracy-altering ‘fairness’ provision for literally any other group? If we weighed, for example, black and indigenous voters more because of unfairness?”

Everything is racist. Everything and everyone is racist.

How do I civics? Our Founding Fathers provided us with a great foundation to build the greatest country this world has ever seen. They knew mob rule would wreck us.

Believe it or not, in a weird way, the Electoral College gives us all an equal voice in the presidential election.

The Electoral College gives those in states with a small population a voice. Without it states like California, Texas, Florida, New York, and Illinois. Gee, only one of those states is a consistently red state. Florida is a swing state. But three out of five? Yeah. No wonder they do not want the electoral college.

As it is, those states have the largest electoral college numbers so they can easily sway an election.

  • California – 55
  • Texas – 38
  • Florida, New York – 29
  • Illinois, Pennsylvania – 20

This is why candidates have to go to states like Wyoming, North Dakota, Montana, Wisconsin, etc.
