DNC Chair Tom Perez like many on the left, while extolling their rights under the Constitution, are at the same time working to undermine that very Constitution which protects their freedoms. They are willfully ignorant of the document as displayed by DNC Chair Perez, who in a speech at Indiana State University declared:
“The Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution, it doesn’t have to be there.”
Perez’s ignorance of the constitution, at least in this case, is perhaps an indictment of the left and liberals in general. The left in its hunger for a socialist society, a society controlled by a powerful central authority that will determine their rights of freedom, if there are indeed any, display gross ignorance of what socialism is, or what it means for the freedoms they now enjoy under the U.S. Constitution.
However, socialism, a prescription for the weak and ignorant who revel in victimization, are easily exploited for their inability to critically analyze a system which will in the end, enslave them.
With all said,we might proffer that DNC Chair Perez is a reflection of those having no respect of the document that protects their rights and privileges. It would be no stretch of the imagination to believe this ignorance of our Constitution is perhaps a greater threat than any external enemy. WFM

DNC head Tom Perez falsely claims Electoral College ‘not a creation of the Constitution’
By Brent Scher, Washington Free Beacon, October 25, 2017
Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez incorrectly stated “the Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution” during a Tuesday night speech.
“The Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution,” Perez said during a lecture at Indiana University Law School. “It doesn’t have to be there.”
The Electoral College, a mechanism for indirect election of the president created by the Founding Fathers as a compromise between smaller states and larger states, is clearly laid out in Article II of the Constitution: “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress.”
Perez has previously stated that President Donald Trump “didn’t win” last November’s election because Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, but he has never denied the fact that it is part of the Constitution.
The DNC did not respond to an inquiry into whether Perez truly thinks the “Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution.”
There are many educational resources available on the Internet that provide clear explanations of what is in the document, including many from the National Constitution Center, which was establishedby Congress to provide a “non-partisan … understanding of the Constitution among the American people.”
