    It is a common lament of Minnesota legislators and advocates when seemingly popular bills aren’t moving: If this reached the floor of the House or Senate, it would pass easily. This year, just since the regular session ended, two issues unresolved by the Legislature have been described that way. One is a tax credit that supports the renovation of...
    The push for Washington, D.C., statehood continues against the long odds of both the filibuster and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin's opposition on a very thin pretext. The Biden administration is now reported to be quietly promoting an idea to handle one of the least stupid hurdles raised for statehood. “Admitting D.C. as a state is comfortably within Congress’ power—arguments to the contrary are...

    The Republican move to object to the certification of the 2020 election results on Wednesday has some wondering, even hopeful, if the long-shot bid to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's win will lead to the Electoral College's demise.

    (CNN)President-elect Joe Biden's victory in this week's Electoral College vote formalized a win that has been known for over a month.

    (CNN)America's electoral college, an institution rooted in racial slavery, must be abolished. Despite the electoral college's central role in the symbolic progress of President Barack Obama's two terms in office and Senator Kamala Harris' election as the first female (and Black/South Asian) vice president in American history, this institution remains a largely anti-democratic tool.

That’s a matter of...

    Every four years, Americans hear a familiar refrain from the media, talking heads, and Leftist politicians: “we need to abolish the electoral college, and choose a president by popular vote alone.” There are many reasons why getting rid of the electoral college would hurt our Republic rather than help it, but for now, let us leapfrog that debate and consider...
