You can always count on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., to say things that don’t make any sense. Last week the radical democratic socialist proposed yet another in a long series of impractical, unachievable and harmful ideas: abolishing the Electoral College.

Before explaining why this is a very bad idea, let me give some breaking news to Ocasio-Cortez, who apparently was absent the day her high school social studies teacher explained how the Constitution is amended.

The article goes on to state the following:

The breaking news? Amending the Constitution to abolish the Electoral College is virtually impossible. That’s because a constitutional amendment needs the support of two-thirds of the U.S. House and Senate for starters. It then needs to be either ratified by the legislatures in 38 states, or by a constitutional convention requested by at least 34 states.

Abolishing the Electoral College would hurt states with small populations and help states with large populations. There are a lot more states with small populations than large ones, so there is no way that the members of Congress and state legislatures would vote in favor of an amendment to reduce the importance of their states in the presidential election process.

Hey, but Ocasio-Cortez has never let reality get in the way of her fantasies – like her belief that socialism, the Green New Deal and other ideas that would destroy our economy and millions of jobs are just wonderful.
