It seems that each day provides a bit more into the thinking (if you can call it that) of the Left. In Wednesday’s Washington Post (“Democracy Dies in the Darkness”) there was an op-ed written by an associate professor at Marquette University titled “It’s time to give the elites a bigger say in choosing the president.”
The article states that a “better primary system would empower elites to bargain and make decisions, instructed by voters” and that having “intermediate representatives” who are elected and “understand the priorities of their constituents” would be far better than the system we now have.
Let’s see now; what might those “priorities” be? Ah, got it! Tighter gun control! More illegal immigration! Government-run health care! We just needed folks to tell us what our priorities should be.
It’s a sign of our times that an article such as this could even be published. Not an encouraging thing.Published in
