WASHINGTON, D.C.A number of Democrats have proposed changes to the structure of government that they think would help them win, such as lowering the voting age to 16, abolishing the Electoral College, packing the Supreme Court, and changing how Senate seats are allocated. Now, though, some of the Democratic presidential hopefuls are attacking the heart of the matter: what they call an outdated Constitution that sometimes allows Republicans to be elected.
The election of Trump exposed a fundamental flaw in the Constitution, Senator Elizabeth Warren said at a campaign rally. Everyone said Hillary was supposed to win, but she didnt. And were afraid that in the future, maybe Democrats wont win again. We can't allow that.
Warren and numerous other Democrats have proposed an amendment to the Constitution that will state that only Democrats are allowed to win elections, a proposal they say will increase election fairness.
When I think about someone other than a Democrat being elected, said Senator Cory Booker, it makes me so mad. He then raised his fists and shook them, a gesture indicating he was mad. Candidate Beto ORourke also spoke out for the proposed amendment, though all he got out was, Its a great-- before skateboarding into a tree and quickly fleeing the scene of the incident.
None of the candidates have explained how they propose to get two-thirds of the states to agree with this amendment, though this has led them to point out another flaw with the Constitution: that its way too hard to change when you suddenly think you have a much better idea.
Clearly satire. If this were real, they’d mention the numerous Republicans who joined in the movement in an effort to reach across the aisle.
spot on bb
Today’s satire could become tomorrow’s news...
Can we assume Beto ate some dirt when he fell?
This isn’t really satire since it has essentially already happened in Calif. In an overwhelming Democrat state, they changed the law so that only the top two vote getters in a primary will face off in the final, regardless of party. The practical effect is to eliminate Republicans from being in the final for state offices. It is not as drastic as the satire, but it is damn close.
California already did that to their voting system so only Democrats run now. Hawaii is proposing the same thing.
p to satire..
or is it???
