I bought a television for my living room about five years ago and it works just as well now as the day I bought it and brought it home.

I imagine at the amount that I use mine that it will end up being in my house for another five to seven years. I tend to go pretty light on things like that. You don’t replace something that you know is going to keep working well.

That being said, imagine how dumb I would look if every year, on the dot, I replaced my television for no reason other than to do it. That would make me pretty damn stupid, wouldn’t it?

Representative Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee, announced Friday Democrats plans to introduce a resolution to abolish the Electoral College saying the presidency should be decided by the popular vote. The Left will see to it that they remain in power indefinitely.

Democrats want a one party system

The congressman is Chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. Democrats introduced a joint resolution calling for an end to the Electoral College at the beginning of the previous Congress in 2019.

A news release from his office calls the Electoral College an “archaic institution” that has in the last two decades twice given the White House to a candidate who did not win the popular vote, “defeating the will of the American people.”

“The Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office,” reads a statement from the congressman. “More than a century ago, we amended our Constitution to provide for the direct election of U.S. Senators. It is past time to directly elect our President and Vice President. The Electoral College is a vestige of the 18th Century when voters didn’t know the candidates who now appear daily on their television screens.”

Cohen went on to say, “Wednesday’s mayhem at the Capitol shows that efforts can be made to manipulate the Electoral College vote using falsehoods and shenanigans by ambitious politicians. The President should always be elected by the people, not the politicians, and the Electoral College allows politicians to make the ultimate decision. It is well past time to do away with this anachronistic institution and guarantee a fair and accurate vote for President.”
