Matthew Continetti is the Editor in Chief of the Washington Free Beacon. He made an excellent point about the Democrats running for president in 2020 and the strategy they are using during a recent appearance on FOX News.
From the Free Beacon:
Continetti: Democrats Want to ‘Change the Structure’ of the United States to Win Elections
Washington Free Beacon editor in chief Matthew Continetti said 2020 Democratic hopefuls support policies such as expanding the Supreme Court and abolishing the Electoral College because they believe they cannot pass progressive policies unless they “change the structure” of the Constitution.
Continetti’s comment came during a Tuesday discussion on Fox News Channel’s Special Report about why proposals concerning the structure of U.S. government have gained support among Democrats.
“The Democratic argument isn’t with any single one of these things: it’s not only with the Electoral College, it’s not only with the 26th Amendment, it’s not only with the state of the Supreme Court, it’s not only with equal representation of small states in the United States Senate,” Continetti said. “The Democratic argument is with the Constitution of the United States of America.
The argument is because the left cannot win its arguments when they present them publicly, and in order to win, they need to change the structure.”

That is so spot on. And that’s why conservatives need to defend the foundation of America.
From Conservative Review:
In the Trump era, we must protect the Electoral College more than ever
After almost two and a half years, the post-Trump debate about how we as a country pick presidents has gotten incredibly tedious, probably because it’s not focused on the root problems behind it.
This week, 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., reignited the debate about whether or not America should keep the Electoral College. Fellow candidates Robert Francis O’Rourke and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Mass., have since also expressed interest in getting rid of the constitutional process.
There are, of course, very good reasons why the framers opted against picking a president by national popular vote. Political thinkers from Aristotle to the Founding Fathers warned against the dangers of mob rule that go hand-in-hand with direct democracy. That’s why this country was founded as a republic and why electors choose the president, rather than the popular vote.
The Electoral College gives people throughout a voice that they wouldn’t otherwise have if the president were chosen by popular vote. It ensures that this country’s chief executive has to actually represent the entire country, rather than just the prevailing interests of its most populated areas. It also has ended up serving as a restraint on political party power.
Democrats are willing to put their ambitions ahead of the Constitution.
