House Dems move to scrap electoral college, prez pardon power
They are treading on thin ice -----
The whole debate is really a perfect example of why it's the way it is....The entire point is, if you don't want to live and think like they do in CA, you have your choice of 49 other states to live in.
It's so outrageous that the party that is supposed to be about the minority and the little guy....wants to screw over the minority and the little guy (really only the ones that don't think like they do).
Fortunately, this is probably DOA because it requires more than a few career politicians to vote against their own re-election. Don't think it would ever get ratified by 2/3 of states (I hope).
SMFH....if you abolish the filibuster and the electoral college, then you are just making the Senate duplicative of the House. These idiots don't realize that a less divided govt and less checks & balances is rarely a good thing. Again, it's a completely irrational and unhealthy belief in ideals that drives this, rather than a realistic understanding of process and execution.
But if you can convince people global warming is going to destroy the planet, then I suppose those people will be willing to take extreme measures to eliminate those evil Republicans.
