If you thought the goal of fundamentally transforming the United States of America began and ended with Barack Obama, think again. The leading Democratic contenders for the White House in 2020 have all outlined plans that would help the liberal wing of their party realize Obama’s dream of converting the nation into a European-style socialist democracy replete with universal health care, endless entitlements, free college, and jobs for everyone.

In order to achieve this utopia, the party first sees a need to dismantle the Electoral College, reconfigure the makeup of the Supreme Court, and beef up their voter enrollment efforts.

But eliminating the Electoral College would do precisely the opposite of what Warren is advocating. Far from making every vote count, doing away with the Electoral College would strip sparsely populated states like Alaska, Delaware, Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming of their voice in government. Candidates for high office would stop campaigning in such locales, focusing their attention exclusively on massive states like California and New York (which just happen to be Democratic strongholds!).

It’s only happened four times, the first in 1888, and there is no guarantee that the system will never work in Democrats’ favor, but they would rather hedge their bets.
