Warren Calls For Scrapping US Electoral College

2043

Senator Elizabeth Warren, one of more than a dozen Democrats vying for the 2020 presidential nomination, on Monday called for the scrapping of the electoral college, the method used to elect U.S. presidents.

It was the first time Warren has explicitly called to eliminate the system established by the U.S. constitution, in which each state is allotted a set number of “electors” based on the combined total of the state’s representation in Congress.

    • She knows she and the democrats will lose in 2020 sh she thinks going against the constitution is a good idea. This woman, and I use that term with restraint, wants only one thing, to distroy this country and it’s laws. She is a fake everything, a liar and a crook who has done nothing for the state of Ma..

      • She and like all the other Liberal Democrats want POWER period. . What has happened to the Northeast? Once the center of freedom as the Revolutionary War started there? Have they all gone nuts. The founding fathers in their wisdom set up the electoral college to prevent one or two section s of the country from having absolute control of WHO ran the country. Every time the Democrats can’t win by the existing rules they are like little children and want to “change ” the rules. This woman is a proven Liar and a cheat. She needs to go drink herself another beer.

      • just saw a new report, mueller claims he found evidence of collusion, guess the report will be out soon, no at the end of the week, no next week, no at the end of the month, what a joke this guy is , Trump will be in for six more years and we will still be hearing about the witch hunt dr. with his report coming out soon, he should be indicted and sent to jail with Cohen, they could make a movie/book deal the report that never was, mueller could no find the white house if he was walking down Pennsylvania ave in Washington.

    • REVOLUTIONARY SOCIALISM:
      Revolutionary Socialism is the Marxist doctrine that social revolution is necessary in order to bring about structural changes to society. More specifically, it is the view that revolution is a necessary precondition for a transition from capitalism to socialism. Revolution is not necessarily defined as a violent insurrection; it is defined as seizure of political power by mass movements of the working class so that the state is directly controlled by elites such as Barack Hussein Obama, (the son of Communists) AOC, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Corey Booker, etal. The Marxist’Socialist strategy is directly opposed to the middle (bourgeois) class and its interests, including the inalienable rights as stated on our July 4th Declaration of Independence. The destruction of the American bourgeois middle class is the goal of the new far-left Democrat Party. Illegal immigration is a Marxist strategy for destroying the American middle class, but their Communist strategy is eventually aimed at destroying the U.S. Constitution.

      • Try to get ahold of yourself, Carl. Electing the President by national popular vote is a reasonable possibility within a democratic nation. It is not in itself socialistic or Marxist. It might even have the result of allowing a media-savvy off-the-wall near-criminal to get re-elected, so it needs to be carefully studied before a decision is made

    • TELL THE BEOCH THAT WE THE LEGAL CITIZENS DO NOT CARE WHAT LIZZIE WARREN WANTS………….TELL ALL THOSE CALIF FEMALE POLITICIANS TO GO TAKE A FLYING LEAP OFF THE CLOSEST CLIFF………

    • You certainly got that right. Warren is a proven phony and with the idiotic Communist things she has to say, she’s making it quite clear that she wants to run a dictatorship. The problem is that there are a lot of stupid big city people who don’t have enough sense to understand that the reason for the electoral college is to keep the country at least partially hones during an election and make the playing field level so places like New York and Los Angles don’t have everything their way during every election.

  1. Ms. Warren is willing to say anything far left because she thinks it will get her more votes to expand her base. She is not known for her integrity.

  2. Warren is a well known Liar, right down to calling her self a Native Indian. She should not be in the government at all, that includes a office cleaner. She is as useless as you can be.

  3. She’s a moron, that’s why the Electoral College is important, so that the Mid West small town votes count just like the big city votes! Without the college, the big cities would rule the country, rural areas would basically have no votes! The rule of the land would be governed by the sponges from the big cities and the other areas would just become their piggy bank slaves.

    • ABSOLUTELY, I DON’T WANT 2 OF THE WORST STATES ELECTING OUR PRESIDENT, kALIFORNIC AND NY, THIS PIECE OF STUPID, SHYT IS A MORONIC BEOTCH, THE ONLY WAY THIS NOW COMMIE’S CAN GET ELECTED IS TO PULL SOME CONSTITUIONAL CRAP, WHEN YOU START TRASHING PIECES OF THE CONSTITUTION SOON THEY WILL THROW IT COMPLETLEY OUT, NOW ONE OF THE GOOFY BEOTCHS WANTS TO GIVE SOCIAL SECURITY TO ALL ILLEGALS!!!, THEY HAVE COMPETLEY LOST THEIR FUKING MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Senotor Warren is carrying the water bucket for the Democratic Party. The idea is doing away with the electoral college is 100% insane. This would effectively delete representation of the majority of states. Elections would be decided by only the few large populated states (California, New York etc). Our forefathers’ were extremely brilliant when they setup the constitution.
    America, don’t let this happen, all people deserve a voice in the election.

  5. How funny is this, when one of the Democrat candidates suggests to get rid of the electoral college, go against the wall, free college, Medicare, global warming, etc., the rest of the 19 or however many there are, they come out and agree on the same issues. Can you see 20 of them on stage trying to debate each other? I am waiting for this one, I think we all could use a good laugh!

  6. Elizabeth Warren is a FLAMING IDIOT!!! I am absolutely amazed that the
    American Electorate (mostly on the dem’s side) continues to put these Simple Minded Dipshits in office!!!! Take that Numbnuts Beto for example: he essentially stands for Nothing!! He stands up, waves his arms and shouts platitudes!!! Its hard to imagine that he or warren got past the second grade!!!

  7. Once a self appointed Indian Princess. Now she wants to change the Constitution and let everybody vote while doing away with the Electoral College. Why doesn’t she just put on her Daisy Duck Costume, and join the Disney Comedy Net Work….cause she is just another Liberal Democratic Clown?

  8. Discriminating against millions of citizens in less populous states is right up this hypocrites alley. You must win the state not just the people to be a president of these United States, she missed that lesson in college. That’s the kind of character she is who cheats and lies to get into a school she didn’t belong in and financial aid to boot. When you go through the process of amending the constitution which requires a majority of 36 states, then I will gladly follow your wonderful, insightful and tyrant of the majority leadership.

  9. I agree about waiting for the spectacle of the democratic debates. So far even candidate are all for the same thing. There is nothing to delineate one from another. So when they get on stage do they lie? Or is it going to devolve I to overdo Al attacks that will be very entertaining. Kinda like the Dukes of Hazard meets the Keystone Cops with Laurel and Hardy as referee!
    For there to be so many supposed educated people, they sure didn’t learn anything while in college. It’s hard to fathom that there aren’t many who haven’t figured out together got to wherever are because the constitution set the stage for their success. Sad part is that hey do know it and now they want to scrape it so ratchet can retain power and no one can ever use the same system to knock them off the power perch. The goal of the establishment of is to consolidate power and scrape the system and develop the socialist society they so desperately want. People is they’ve forgot the oath keepers, III%, and the restricts and veterans. Ion now look for there to be a system rezetwhich a large majority of liberals aren’t going to like. Not one bit. I’ve seen it coming for a few fearsome and unfortunately the pace has accelerated and is proceeding at warp speed now. I’m not sure if anyone can stop it before the ultimate conclusion both I and my father has foreseen. We’re not mystics nor have we read tea leaves. No but what we are is people who have extrapolated current trend to their ultimate conclusions.

  10. I wonder how any Democrats would be for eliminating the electoral college if Hillary had won the college and had less popular vote than Trump? NONE.
    They want to change everything, including the Constitution if it would help them win. That’s all they are interested in, not the American people, except for their votes, Not the Country, just power. They will do anything, whether it’s legal or not, promise everything, just to get your vote. After elected, nothing.
    The Democrat party have become a worthless piece of crap. There is no way of knowing what this country would be like today, had they worked with the Republicans and the president to do what we elected him to do, instead of trying to obstruct everything he has tried to do. I used to vote Democrat. Not anymore.
    They don’t care about you, me or anything except winning the election and power over the American people. I hope, in the next election, the American people will show them that what they are doing must stop.
    They are becoming America’s biggest enemy. It’s like we have a hostile, foreign government right here in the USA, doing everything in their power to take this country down. Sad

    • Breaker 19:
      They are imploding right in front of us. Their only hope is to make sure illegals and 16-yr olds can vote in 2020.
      The Democratic Party of the past has been “highjacked” by the socialists. What is amazing to me, they no longer hide their socialist identity.

    • I hope your right not only about that, but The American People voting a great deal of these other morons out of office!

  11. I agree with all the aforementioned comments. Hmm, how many more of these IDIOTS will throw their hats in the ring? I heard this AM that former governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia ( who should’ve been a shoe salesman) “might” consider it in a couple of weeks. OBOY! I can’t wait! We haven’t seen such a parade of clowns since the Ringling Bros. Circus was still in existence.

  12. Urban population centers will now have the ability to tax the rest of America,
    to fulfill their socialist agendas. Rural Americans will be the subjects of tyranny.

  13. So that those who live in sparsely populated areas can have taxation without representation? The Electoral College is the ONLY way to have ALL Americans represented. Of course, Democrats have no idea how something works…they only know it might keep them out of Office. They will stop at nothing to gain power and money…including taking your right to representation away. How does it make sense to only allow the largest, most populated areas to vote and make decisions that affect the rest of the Country? It doesn’t. But then, Democrat’s aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed!!

    • The House of Representatives is districted on the basis of population so rural voters would continue to have a voice equal to city voters in the House. The electoral college system allows a candidate winning slim margins in one state to overcome a candidate winning large margins in another. What is fair about that?

  14. Unless we Democrats win by the electoral college?, Then we’ll keep it! Yes, Nancy lets lower the voting age, but not at 16 years old, lets lower it to 4 years old, that way we can get more votes before they get smart enough ti realize that we’re a bunch of liars and make promises we have no intentions of keeping. By the time they figure that out they’ll be atleast 28 years of age. Imagine the extra votes we will get, plus all those illegals we’re allowing into the states and providing them with Social Security that none of which have paid into. That will screw all those people who didn’t vote Democrat and everyone else who has paid into Social Security for the last 40 to 45 years!

  15. Warren and the rest of the morons of this Country, seems to think that if you make everything available to everybody, that you’re going to get things done. Not the case, as in Miles Standish stated to the members of the Plymouth Colony, “no work no eat”. But we listen to the morons and when it comes to cleaning up the mid-west from all these storms and flooding, they haven’t a clue. They don’t get their hands dirty, they don’t know how to put their backs into their work. Instead they want everyone to sit around and expect that the Gov’t will do everything for them and they do nothing. Like President Trump has stated in the past, “you can get a good paying job w/o going to college, but you must be willing to work with your hands”.

  16. That’s why so many wish to legalize pot. If we ALL become zombies, staring off into nothing, Democrats can run everything. Right down to how much pot the pot smokers can smoke. The United States the NEW Socialist Country.
    Dumb asses have no idea how much they’ll screw up this country! However, they’ve done a good job so far.

  17. Silly Lizzie and cohorts, still promising things they know they can’t do, but counting on those who only half listen to back them on this nonsense! Just like them to try this, if you can’t LEGITIMATELY win an election, then try to take away one of the things that keeps it honest! So sad for the democRAT liberals nutcases!

  18. Hmmmm… Warren and the rest might THINK they are smarter than our founding fathers but they are nowhere close to being as cerebral as our founding fathers. Gore got the popular vote but Bush won the election. When that happened, EVERY Democrat was upset but no colleges had to bring out trauma therapists, trauma dogs, coloring books and crayons. We sucked it up and moved on with life. Trump wins an election and trauma dogs, trauma therapists, coloring books and crayons, kids bawling their eyes out, the Democrats laid blame on the Russians, THEN collusion between Trump and Russia came out and the Democratic world went totally out of their minds! Other than that, Capital Hill is the same. Representatives working for their own interests instead of those who elected them into office. The truth be told, the only Russian collusion was with Clinton and company when she sold, what was it, 20% of America’s weapons grade uranium to RUSSIA?. How can ANY American disregard that fact involving the uranium? Until America wakes up and smells what is being shoveled at us, we a headed for some seriously bad times as a country! This should not be Democrats against Republicans! This should be Americans against what is going on right now in our country regardless of party affiliation!

  19. There are 5 states that have a population that exceeds the other 45 states put to gather and they are all democratic states. If they do away with the Electoral College they would control who they want for president the other 45 states would be up shit creek. Trump one over 4,000 counties Clinton didn’t even when 500 counties. So you can see why our founding Fathers came up with the Electoral College it is fair a balanced.

    👍🎆💓TRUMPence2020💓🎆👍!!!

  22. Faux-a-hontus lies as proven many times over. She, and the rest of the stupid lying dumb-o-craps, want to destroy the work of the founders so they can lie their way into the Whitehouse and proceed to destroy the most successful country in the world. With the exception of Andy Jackson and Harry Truman, democrats have always tried to turn the US back into a communist operation so they could rule like Stalin, Lenin, FDR and all the other scum. The founders were aware of this and set up many methods to avoid the downfall, the top two were the Electoral College and the Supreme Court. FDR tried to load the court so his will would become law. Fortunately he died and was replaced by a real Democrat; Harry S. Truman.

  23. Here we go again ——–The electorial vote has been working well for ages and the left wants to change it NOW?? why people??? They have alternative motive. They have to win. And they will do anything to get that accomplished. They want us along with the globalist to take down our country. They want the role of dictatorship over our country and take us the the NWO. This is why they hate Trump so bad. We the people stopped them in their tracts. Look how they are treating us—they hate us and attacking us in the underhanded ways. This is why we have to keep fighting them.

  24. The Pocahontas (lying sack of shit) is at it again just as mentally deranged as the rest of the NAZI commie Liberal Demoncrats! Deep State, Pelosi, Waters, Schumer, Hollywood, Academia, Fake News, Swamp News and you know the rest!

  25. It shows how ignorant she is. It takes 39 states to agree to make a Constitutional Amendment. That will never happen. How many states are involved in the overfly states? Never Happen!!!

  26. no–just get rid of this stupid phony bitch–if she doesn’t go away soon –she will meet her doom -she is a maggot that needs to be censored–does not represent America

  27. Ms. or Mrs. Warren, as Bad a call as your One Sided Indoctrinated Free Speech, when those Berkley U. Students Never wanting to hear another persons view point, like The True Conservative Republican side of the whole story and Planned Parenthoods Infanticide = Blood Money, like you Progressive Liberal Commie/Socialist Democrats can produce, it’s all about the same way that you US Congressional Members do NOT follow the US Constitution All Of The Time And To The Letter, and NOT wanting to Improve The 1997 US Immigration and Naturalization Act [to just watch all of those Illegal Immigrant-Aliens or Undocumented Immigrants using that Southern Border as sa Old Fashioned Department Stores Revolving Front and Back Door with NO Border Guards, To Make Sure That They Have Their US Approved Immigration Applications and Their Honest and Pertinent Birth Certificates, and Leaving all of their Dangerous, Deadly Violent and Destructive Attitudes and Actions behind inside their original Countries, but those US Congressional Members took that Oath to Serve And Protect “We The Legal Citizens/People And The Legal Immigrants Of The USA ONLY”!

  28. Like all of the liberal Democrats, she wants the cards stacked in her favor. The next thing she will campaign against is the Constitution itself. Once we let the “cities” and minorities rule, our country will go to hell, and that’s what this ultra-liberal liar wants.

  29. Elizabeth Warren uses the mantra that “every vote counts” If she truly believes this why would she want the Electoral College gone? The EC was created to keep the elections fair, giving voice to less populated states. W/o this body, elections would be decides by a few well populated states. So Ms. Warren, if every vote counts, why would you want to eliminate the votes of at least 45 states? Either you are too stupid to realize this or you’re just blowing smoke out of your butt!

  30. If the left can’t win with the present system (that has been in place and worked for years), they will try to change the system. So, what will they do if they actually eliminate the Electoral College and still lose? What will they want to change then?

  31. Another idiot socialist DumbCrat Bitch!! They have been such sore losers! I am so disgusted with all of our “esteemed” politicos, even the GOP who can’t get their acts together either! Obviously they don’t want to understand that they are disenfranchising my vote in favor of the illegals who they encourage to come to this “gimme” country without earning any rights!! The electoral college was established so that we not from the Californias or New Yorks stand a chance AND have a true voice in any election too! WE ARE NOt A DEMOCRACY, WE ARE A REPUBLIC!! POPULAR VOTE BE DAMNED!! She better decide what ethnicity she is before trying to rob me of anything!!! Besides,as a Viet-era Vet, I have yet to meet any true vets who have fought for socialism!

  32. What.s 2 prevent the unrepresented states from seceding? The union was formed by separate colonies later states with different laws. That is why it’s called the United States of America.
    Disenfranchising the less populated states breaks the original covenant. Therefore approximately 30 – 40 states will not b obligated 2 remain in the union. Don’t believe u will have another 1860s style civil war. This time the seceding states will out number the others. Also the coddled inhabitants of the large coastal cities don’t have the stomach 2 face armed/organized militia’s. (not defenseless seniors/women/children attacked by REALFA) All this if the Chinese don’t invade the western states & the Russians don’t sweep down thru, Canada They already have bases in the arctic & short hop in2 Alaska. You don’t really believe the Canadians can stop 150 Russian mechanized divisions without our help do you?

  33. I call for scrapping Warren. She is a lying thief of Native American culture, claiming to be a native American for her own personal benefit. WE do not need liars representing or speaking for us. Scrapping the electoral college is a horrible deal in any event. The president would be elected by the big cities and the left coast. The rest of us would have no say.
