Babs is at it again. This time, Barbra Streisand has proclaimed that the Electoral College represents an “assault on our democratic principles.” Gee, considering it is part of the U.S. Constitution and our Founding Fathers were the ones who came up with it, I find that surprising and a totally historically ignorant declaration.
You know, for a pop icon that has become insanely wealthy and famous because of her freedoms here in America, she sure hates everything we stand for. That’s the very definition of hypocrisy. Babs gave an interview to the Washington Post (figures) on what she thinks the Constitution stands for — what it means to her and other liberals such as Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. She described the system as “antiquated” and advocated replacing it with a system that allows the winner of the popular vote to win the election.
What Streisand is condoning is stripping the voting rights of middle America away and putting the left and right-coast elitists in charge of the government and our lives. She wants one-party rule. No thank you — we fought to free this country from tyrants such as Babs and we are not going to hand control back to them.
“The 14th Amendment of our Constitution actualized what many of the Founders wanted, promoting equal protection under the law for all Americans,” Streisand said. “If I could, I would end the antiquated electoral college. Twice in the last 20 years, the popular vote winner was denied the presidency. This is an assault on our democratic principles, where the dictum should hold true: one person, one vote.”
Barbara Streisand would be correct if this was England which is where she could go to avoid the electoral college, we are a republic and without the electoral college she and her friends on the coasts would rule, the founders knew that.

Let’s put aside the obvious fact that Babs has no idea what the Constitution actually says for a moment… the Founding Fathers would smack her for heresy over her Marxist statements. Simply because Democrats have lost elections because they have not won the Electoral College, those such as Streisand want it abolished. It’s not hard to understand why… it’s in their way of totally controlling America and all she is and stands for.
“The Electoral College has repeatedly proved an issue for Democratic presidential candidates, with both Al Gore in 2000 and Hillary Clinton in 2016 winning the national popular vote but losing out to George W. Bush and Donald Trump, respectively, via the Electoral College vote. Some 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VM) and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, have recently called for its abolition.
People a lot wiser than Streisand thought the electoral college was the fairest system for all States and all citizens to have an equal vote. Thank God they wrote the constitution and not someone as ignorant as Streisand.

“This is not the first time that Barbra Streisand, a progressive stalwart who is one of Hollywood’s most fervent anti-Trump critics, has expressed her opposition to the Electoral College. Last year, the Oscar-winner admitted to having been brought to tears by Hillary Clinton’s defeat at the hands of Donald Trump and argued the fact that she got 2.9 million more votes than her Republican counterpart had left her “numb.”
“So, I was in tears,” the 77-year-old singer said of the night of the presidential election. “We walked around of kind of numb. I’m still a little bit numb because I can’t believe it happened, since, you know, Hillary got 2.9 million more votes than Trump and she’s not the president, so I don’t know. This antiquated Electoral College doesn’t sit well with me. It’s not fair. I think the people should vote for who the leader is of our country.”’
I love Electoral College (EC) losers. They act like POTUS is first one to win election, despite not getting the most votes. Newsflash, if elections were determined differently, candidates would run different campaigns. No chance EC goes away but fun reading all the crying.

The people should vote for who the leader is of our country — but it should be a vote by an equally represented people… not progressive-packed, socialist-clogged cities run by liberals and communists. There is a reason the Electoral College was conceived and it has served America very well protecting her from autocrats such as Barbra Streisand. This is not a democracy, it’s a Constitutional Republic.
Streisand was one of those liberals in tears as President Trump won in 2016. If I were her, I’d keep a lot of Kleenex handy in 2020. Just sayin’. She vowed to leave the last time Trump won… this time maybe she’ll just do it. We’ll hold the door for you, Babs.
Funny – the same men who wrote the Constitution included the Electoral College in it – and yet Barbwa thinks she knows what they intended? Doesn't she know that we are the United STATES of America – a REPUBLIC for which we stand?
