New York Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a self-described Democrat Socialist.
After Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed as a Supreme Court justice by the Senate, 50-48, Alexandria called for the electoral college to be abolished.
Her reason why is absolutely hilarious.
It is well past time we eliminate the Electoral College, a shadow of slavery’s power on America today that undermines our nation as a democratic republic. https://t.co/00HZN3MI6F

Wait. Ocasio-Cortez cares about “our democratic republic,” yet doesn’t understand how things work in America?
How about the intent of the Founders?
Yeah. Seems about right.
Reactions from people who can’t believe Ocasio-Cortez will one day represent New Yorkers:
Comrade Ocasio Cortez, maybe you should move to Venezuela and run for office there. We don’t need your “progress” here.

If you're going to get into politics at the very least you should know not only the constitution, but the federalist papers. We don't live in a democratic republic, we live in a constitutional republic. The founders knew of the dangers of democracy.

So begins the left's push for a full democracy in the United States. Of course anyone who knows any history knows that when the majority rule (any majority) it leads to a oppression of the minority. More oppression than any leftist could "claim" exist now in the US. But continue. https://t.co/xjRfZN7jHg

From Fox News:
Judge Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as the 114th Supreme Court justice late Saturday, just hours after the Senate voted to confirm him to the nation’s highest court after a rancorous confirmation battle.
Kavanaugh was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts in a private ceremony, accompanied by his wife and children. The ceremonial swearing in is expected to happen on Monday evening at the White House. It means that now-Justice Kavanaugh will begin hearing cases before the court on Tuesday.
The Senate voted 50-48 to confirm Kavanaugh, mostly along party lines, after a weeklong FBI probe helped settle concerns among most wavering senators about the sexual assault allegations that nearly derailed his nomination and led to a dramatic second hearing. Saturday’s roll call marked the tightest successful Supreme Court confirmation vote in over 100 years, closer than even that of Clarence Thomas who similarly faced sexual misconduct allegations.
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., was the sole Democrat to vote “yes.” Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, was a “no,” but voted “present” as a courtesy to Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., who was attending his daughter’s wedding in Montana.
Democrats reacted to the vote by urging supporters to turn out to the polls in November for the midterms.
Here are some horrible reactions:
Abolish the Senate. Abolish lifetime appointments to the supreme court.
No matter how hard you vote in November, they are coming for your rights.
Direct action. Organization. Civil disobedience.
The senators who voted Yes should feel as unsafe as women do right now. https://t.co/gspd04IeNs
