Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) pushed back Sunday against Democrat ideas to expand the number of seats on the Supreme Court and do away with the Electoral College for presidential elections, the Washington Examiner reported.
“Over my dead body, it’s not going to happen,” Graham told Fox News’s Maria Bartiromo in an interview.
Graham explained that Democrats want to gain a majority on the Supreme Court so they can use it to usher in extreme laws that could never be passed by Congress or signed by the President. The Constitution meant the courts to be a check on executive and legislative power, not to make laws itself.
Similarly, Graham explained that doing away with the Electoral College would take power away from rural states in electing the President. Graham said such action would be “telling every rural American to go to hell. That would mean that Los Angeles and New York would decide who’s the president, the Electoral College allows rural America to have a say about picking the president,” he asserted.
Voters should think very carefully before offering power to a political party that could so easily throw away a Constitution that has made the United States the world’s greatest superpower and kept us free for more than 200 years. In large part, we are free because the Founding Fathers were very careful in how they set up our government, and it could all go away if we decide to change it because Democrats want more power.
