@ewarren In order to abolish the Electoral College, she needs to amend the Constitution.

That means a supermajority of the House and Senate need to agree, or two-thirds of the states need to approve in a constitutional convention.
@ewarren None of the 27 amendments to the Constitution have been proposed by constitutional convention.

After Congress approves an amendment, THREE-FOURTHS of the states--38 of 50--need to ratify it.
@ewarren After @realDonaldTrump wins the popular vote in 2020, all this blather about abolishing the Electoral College will subside.

Warren wants a direct democracy, what the Founders called "pure democracy."
@ewarren @realDonaldTrump "Pure democracy cannot subsist long nor be carried far into the departments of state – it is very subject to caprice and the madness of popular rage."

--John Witherspoon
@ewarren @realDonaldTrump "The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure, deformity."

--Alexander Hamilton
@ewarren @realDonaldTrump The Swiss cantons that have direct democracy can and DO vote to strip people of their homes and rights to live there.

Switzerland gave women the vote in 1971.

Nice, huh?
@ewarren @realDonaldTrump If we get direct democracy, THESE people will elect all our presidents forever.
@ewarren @realDonaldTrump Californians will make all the decisions.

@ewarren @realDonaldTrump The entire point of leftism is to enslave the population and make their lives miserable, while the ruling elite lives like kings and queens.

Europe and South America are proof that it goes on forever.
@ewarren @realDonaldTrump Ireland became the most business-friendly European country.

Then they took a hard left turn, collapsed the economy, and have been living in the rubble ever since.

Same with Chile.

@ewarren @realDonaldTrump The protestors want free everything, so the government will return to socialism, and the economy will collapse.

Collectivism is in the blood of these cultures.

They embrace failure as a badge of honor.
@ewarren @realDonaldTrump One of the metrics that "economists" use is "inequality."

Let me ask you something:

How is your life impacted by the wealth of others?

@ewarren @realDonaldTrump Have you ever looked at the lives of people who win the lottery?

No matter the amount, they spend it all and end up broke.

The toothless guy on the left won TWO lotteries.
@ewarren @realDonaldTrump After the first, he was a multimillionaire, and then he won $314 million, which netted him $93 million.

He'd carry around $1 million in cash in a briefcase, buying drinks for the house at strip clubs and casinos.

So of course his briefcase was stolen when he was drunk.
@ewarren @realDonaldTrump Then his granddaughter took in a grifter who murdered her in the guy's house.

He's broke again.

If Warren and Sanders confiscated all the wealth in the country and redistributed it, the country would be broke again in two years.
@ewarren @realDonaldTrump Leftists can't be cured, because they always say that their ideas weren't implemented the right way.

The only thing we can do is make it so that the majority of Americans recognize leftism as the failure it is.

We'll get there. We aren't Irish or Chilean.
