Democrats' New 3-Pronged Power Play: 'If You Can't Win, Change the Rules'

airlift[CBN News] The Democratic presidential stampede to the 2020 elections is in full swing. There are more than 15 candidates and even more could join the race. And one of the top issues will be changing America's form of government and the way we elect our president. (Screengrab image: via CBN News)

Power Play #1: Kill the Electoral College

Democrats have decided America's political system needs an update. Big on their list is abolishing the US Electoral CollegeŚletting the popular vote determine who's elected president.

Elizabeth Warren told supporters this week, "We can have national voting and that means get rid of the Electoral College."

It was the Electoral College vote that gave Donald Trump the victory over Hillary Clinton in 2016. Clinton won the popular vote.

America's founding fathers instituted the Electoral College to protect the nation from a large faction of voters who might want to introduce tyranny. It also encourages a two-party system and pressures candidates to campaign in every state and not just in states where they have strong support. But now Colorado has joined 11 other states in support of the movement to use a popular vote to elect the president.

Power Play #2: Stack the US Supreme Court

Some Democrats also want to add more justices to the US Supreme Court which, in their view, has become increasingly conservative.

Beto O'Rourke wants to expand the high court from the current 9 justices to as many as 15 justices and give them term limits.

Power Play #3: Let 16-Year-Olds Vote

Another Democratic proposal is to lower the voting age to 16 to allow younger teenagers to help pick the next president.

President Trump tweeted his response to the Democratic plans overnight, saying, "The Democrats are getting very 'strange.' They now want to change the voting age to 16, abolish the Electoral College, and Increase significantly the number of Supreme Court Justices. Actually, you've got to win it at the Ballot Box!"

President Trump also says he guarantees the Supreme Court won't be expanded for six years, while he's in office. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
