It’s been quite some time since Andy Richter made our radar which means he’s not been tweeting overly stupid stuff OR we just kinda sorta forgot he was on Twitter.
Probably more of the latter considering he sent this winner of a tweet out yesterday …
“If you abolish the EC people in rural areas will be overruled by people in cities.” Yes, that’s how one person/one vote works. You’re also arguing that laws should favor where most of the voters DON’T live, and that is some self-serving non-democratic horseshit right there.

Andy, this tweet is so uninformed and WRONG we’re really not sure where to begin.
Those daggum ‘rural’ people and their whole not wanting to be ruled by the urban elites thing … the nerve.
Maybe you should put up candidates that can win elections under the carefully designed rules that our nation has had for 250 years.
For starters, she should have campaigned in Wisconsin.

Note, Democrats were AOK with the EC as long as they were winning.

So ridiculously clueless.
Please go back and reread, for comprehension, this time, a high school civics textbook, including the constitution. There are specific reasons why the congress is apportioned as it is and why we have the EC.
By the way, we are not a democracy. Read to learn.

It's pretty simple, unless you're a bedwetting sore looser.

Hrm, is Andy trying to tell us something?
Each state is sovereign. That’s what a “state” is. In order to function as a collective, the framers developed a system in which each sovereign state would be represented in a “Republic”. We are not a direct democracy. Never have been.

It’s as if people like Andy cannot grasp how the Electoral College actually works and why the Founding Fathers put it in place. That or they simply don’t want to get it.

Democracy…. as you describe it… is a brutal mob rule government… and that reinforces the need for the Electoral College, which prevents the fascist mob from gaining power

Hey Andy, it's called the United what of America?
