Apparently triggered by the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democrat Socialist running for the House of Representatives, demanded an end to the Electoral College, and in so doing, also exhibited her complete ignorance about our history and form of governance.
“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,” she said in response to another tweet lamenting the fact that four Supreme Court justices have been appointed by two Republican presidents.

Naturally, she got her clock cleaned on the social media site:
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.

How is it related to slavery? I think it's just to make sure the presidential candidates don't just ignore anyone not living in a big city.

It’s not, but facts don’t seem to matter much to the modern American left…
Comrade Ocasio Cortez, maybe you should move to Venezuela and run for office there. We don’t need your “progress” here.

Democrats say they want minorities to have an equal voice.
Democrats want to get rid of the electoral college so that smaller groups do not have an equal voice.

Of course, abolishing the Electoral College has long been a pipe dream of anti-American socialists, as this person pointed out:
Something socialists in the USA have been demanding for over a hundred years. The 1912 Socialist Party platform called for: abolishing the electoral college, Senate, & SCOTUS power to rule on constitutionality of laws… while demanding congressional representation for DC. pic.twitter.com/IjWdeKYHw2

The level of ignorance continually spewed by Ocasio-Cortez is stunning.
No wonder she thought a debate challenge was cat calling. https://t.co/x0a8EB0DWd

Sadly, this level of ignorance is now shared by many on the left.
There is, however, one consolation to all this:
