The Electoral College Should Go

The EC needs to go. Some disagree, but with the unprecedented Red state gerrymandering that has accelerated because the John Roberts SCOTUS first gutted the Voter Rights Act then refused to address the outrageous GOP effort at partisan redistricting.

Together with outrageously blatant voter suppression in the very places the Voter Rights Act had once checked such things.

Then courts ruling that electors in the Electoral College could not be required by State laws to follow a state’s popular vote which the SCOTUS also refuses to address means the college has become a tool of autocracy.

The US Constitution was designed to evolve, and it’s clearly time it should do just that again.

In 2016, nearly 3 MILLION more popular votes were won by Hillary Rodham Clinton. (Trump’s correct to say the people spoke, but it was NOT for him.)

It’s time the electoral college was relegated to history along with the need for women’s suffrage and the abolition of slavery.
