A Thursday op-ed on CNN.com outlined a proposal to “not onlyend a Trump administration, but also to eradicate democracy’s ugliest anachronism — the Electoral College.” Scott Piro hoped against hope that a group of Trump electors would switch their vote to Hillary Clinton, in order to gain “the bipartisan support needed to legislate it [the Electoral College] out of existence.” Piro contended that “if enough Trump electors voted for Clinton instead, it would give Republicans their own, distinct reason to loathe the Electoral College.”

The editorial staff at CNN’s website led into the columnist’s piece, “It’s time for the Electoral College to fall on its sword,” with a short bio: “Scott Piro is an independent media relations and copywriting professional, directing PR campaigns and designing messaging for startups, arts organizations, authors, publishers, corporations, nonprofits, indie films and other entities.” However, the sketch left out any indication of Piro’s ideology — something the writer himself is transparent about in his Twitter bio: “Gay, sober, progressive Zionist Jew. Lover of Israel, Prince, Madonna and dogs.” – READ MORE

    CNN, the worst network in history, makes themselves completely ignorant of the purpose of the Electoral College. The Constitution is clear. We are a Representative Republic, not a democracy. Mob does not rule in the US, on either side of the political spectrum. The Electoral College prevents NY and California from ruling the country. We are a country of states, united. Not one state. There is a reason that senators are elected to serve for 6 years and Representatives in the House for 2 years. There is a reason each state has 2 senators and the states population determines how many reps they get. Obama criticized Wyoming being able to have 2 senators while California, much more populated gets 2 as well. Obama is an idiot. Every state is equally represented in the Senate, balancing the House which case California has many more reps than Wyoming. The battle against the Electoral College is only from lefties who want the Constitution overturned in favor of a socialist dictator state like Cuba. Over my dead body.

    Scott, please don’t use the euphemism “progressive” when in fact you mean socialism/Marxism. I bet you even have a pic of Che on your bedroom wall and pray to Fidel at night. Your comments confirm you are ant-Constitution and live in a world completely void of common sense.
