Lest we forget, barring some last-minute divine intervention, New York Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is on her way to an easy election victory next month and a seat in the House of Representatives.One of the things she wants to do is abolish the Electoral College. Good luck with that. Her pie-in-the-sky idea is one we've heard before. And the chances of it happening is just about zero.
You see, there are ways to amend the Constitution, and the most common way is to have two-thirds of both Houses of Congress approve it, then have three-fourths of the state legislatures approve it. How does she intend to get thirty-eight (38) states to approve such a lame-brained idea?
Like most Democratic/Socialist ideas, this is a pipe dream of the left. Simply, it ain't gonna happen. New York needs a whole new political class.
