Democrat Socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calls the system a ‘shadow of slavery’s power’ after the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Do you not think it’s advisable to gain an education before running for office? It might help her avoid embarrassing tweets like the one below.
It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic. https://t.co/00HZN3MI6F

Democratic socialist congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is pushing for the Electoral College to be abolished.
Ocasio-Cortez — who surprisingly won the Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district earlier this year — responded over the weekend to a Twitter user who pointed out that two presidents who both lost the popular vote — George W. Bush and Donald Trump — have now placed four justices on the Supreme Court.
“It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote.
It is far from the first time that a comment from Ocasio-Cortez raised eyebrows. She got her political colors mixed up while on the campaign trail in July, and she was roundly criticized for flubbing an interview question in which she criticized Israel’s “occupation” of the Palestinian territories.

Keep talking Alexandria because the more you do, the more people can see how unqualified you are for holding any office.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets schooled on Twitter:
The electoral college has nothing to do with slavery, and everything to do with checking the power of big states to render small states voiceless…in other words, it strengthens the republic by making it more representative of the interests of the whole, not just New York.

She meant to say she’ll write that bill when she’s inebriated

No, the Electoral College was adopted to prevent tyrrany over the small states by the large states. Read a book? OK?

You all were fine with the Electoral College from 1992-1999 and from 2008-2015. Boy I wonder why that would be?

I like how they tie the electoral college to slavery. If they want something gone they just make it racist.
