Ruth Bader Ginsburg Has Bad News for Ocasio-Cortez

Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been a liberal icon on the Supreme Court for decades. 

One reason RBG has earned the saintly adoration of her supporters and, at least, begrudging respect of her opponents is her judicious approach to affect change.

Most recently, Ginsburg threw ice-cold water on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s dream to abolish the Electoral College. 

And it was glorious.

The Daily Wire’s Molly Prince has more:
 

“It’s largely a dream because our Constitution is … hard to amend,” Ginsburg told a crowd while speaking at the University of Chicago. “I know that from experience.”

Despite referring to the idea as “more theoretical than real,” the liberal icon has voiced her support for the measure in the past. While speaking at Stanford University in 2017, she included abolishing the institution on the list of things she would like to change about society, reported Politico.

“There are some things I would like to change, one is the Electoral College,” she said at the time. “But that would require a constitutional amendment, and amending our Constitution is powerfully hard to do.”

President Donald Trump was notably elected to the presidency in 2016 after winning an Electoral College majority, however, he lost the country’s popular vote by nearly 3 million votes.

There are good reasons why we have an Electoral Collège. Our forefathers recognized the dangers of having just a majority vote. The larger states would have an unfair advantage. So they created a system that would be fair to all. I guess these people who object to the Electoral College do not know much about government or our history or basic Civics.

Not real history. Nor civics or government. I wonder if millennials know what a “bill” is or how it becomes law. They borrowed trillons off dollars to get degrees in Women’s Studies and indoctrination in Marxism.I ha hoped Devos would step up and address some of these issues. Not so much. She did get rid of obama-math in Common Core. Now get Islam OUT of school and history, free enterprise, and government studies back in.

No we don’t need to get ISlam out of our schools. What we need is for the ideologies of the Qur’an to be thought to our children truthfully, Then they will see the truth about this sham religion.

Very true. Thank you for your comments. Islam is not God inspired and it is time for we Christians to shout it from the mountaintops.

Neither is Civics taught. Too many college students are not aware that there are three branches of government or that the House holds the purse strings.

They think civics is a car. History is not something they like either. Remember a couple weeks ago lane brain AOC said that if the founders wanted citizens to own guns they would have put it in the constitution. So there you see the stupidity we are dealing with.

It’s not that the teachers are ignorant,it’s thath the good teachers are not allowed to teach what is best for the students.Instead what is good and ethical is removed from the curriculum by the liberals and they keep inserting ultra liberals as teachers especially in colleges.

The good news for AOC is that guys still want blowjobs. AOC gives really good head. She’ll blow your weeny for just $2.55, much cheaper than Kamala. Just contact aocsucksem.com to set up an appointment. She swallows too.

We live in a democracy, but not a direct democracy. Which means not every vote is counted to elect a president. When the constitution was adopted , states at that time were under different configurations. Today we need to represent every voter. Regardless of the state population. Which means count every vote to elect the president. That is the fair American way. . There is nothing more fair, than counting every vote cast, why bother having a representative vote for you, when you already vote for your choice.

AJ, Even today states are under different configurations as you state. That’s why we call it the United STATES. Some have caucuses. Some do not. Some have counties, others parishes, some are commonwealths. People are free to move from one to another. None of this means we should eliminate the Electoral College. In fact we need it now more than ever

This is intended to be a general perspective of a 72 year old, 25 year USAF veteran. I graduated from high school in June 1965. My father worked as a carpenter and my mother was a Red Cross lab tech that processed donated blood. I raised my right hand on July 1st to join the USAF. Neither my parents, nor I had the money for me to go to college! I had no desire to be cannon fodder in Vietnam. So, I figured my best bet was to enlist in USAF. Worked out great as I received my draft notice in Sept of 65. My 1st Sgt told the draft board “Sorry, I own him!” I survived the war and went on to spend 25 years in before I retired and was able to get an associate degree at about the 20 year point in my career. I’m a life long Republican. Little did I know in 1965 that our country was going to be hijacked by the Dems, aka Liberals. I knew them then as the college radicals (hippys). Being radical liberals and in college they eventually hijacked vast majority of the public colleges and universities by infiltrating the facilities and administrations. BAD news now…they are teaching their puke to all the students. In wars, we call that brainwashing! Now, 50+ years later we are faced with several generations of idiots infected with radical liberalism. Old folks are supposed have all this wisdom to pass on to the younger generations. Seems to me, no matter how much we try to pass on the knowledge and wisdom, they have already got their wisdom from a education system that is dominated by the liberal. I’m just some old senile fart that can find the bathroom. It breaks my heart and it is going to kill this country.
