U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a hero on the Left.
Liberals hang on her every word and Ginburg’s judicial opinions have come to define the radical positions Democrats take on many issues.
But Ruth Bader Ginsburg dropped a bombshell that no one in Washington, D.C. could believe.
Ever since Donald Trump won the 2016 election, Democrats have lost their minds.
The Left has made it their mission to make sure Republicans never win the president’s office again.
Many on the Left – led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – took up the cause of eliminating the Electoral College.
Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow travelers argued the Electoral College was racist because it protected the rights of Americans in rural states to make sure their voters counted.
But they were not prepared for Ruth Bader Ginsburg to shut down this effort.
Ginsburg dismissed the idea of repealing the Electoral College as mere fantasy.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Ginsburg urged a University of Chicago crowd Monday to focus on more constructive and realistic goals than ending the Electoral College, which is enshrined in the Constitution. She made the comments during an hourlong interview at the university, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Eliminating the Electoral College would require a constitutional amendment, Ginsburg explained, which is a goal “more theoretical than real.”
“It’s largely a dream because our Constitution is … hard to amend,” Ginsburg said. “I know that from experience.” The 27th Amendment was the last to be ratified and concerned congressional compensation. It passed in 1789 but was not ratified until 1992.
Liberal politicians, pundits, and activists have called to shift presidential elections from the Electoral College model to a popular election. Last month, MSNBC host Chris Hayes devoted part of his show to arguing against the Electoral College.
Since Donald Trump’s election, Democrats have not taken defeat well.
When the Left loses a Supreme Court case, liberals insist Democrats pack the Supreme Court with additional left-wing justices to guarantee conservatives never win another high-profile decision.
Donald Trump won the election and so liberals want to scrap the system for electing presidents that the founders laid out to move to a national popular vote because they think that will guarantee perpetual victory.
