Supreme Court


 if you’re outraged by the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent rulings on abortion, gun safety, and more – you’re not alone.The frustrating truth is: this Court is making drastic decisions that’ll impact millions of us even though FIVE of the nine justices were appointed by a president who lost the popular vote.
This is the broken Electoral College in action – and it should set off alarm bells for everyone who cares about democracy.

Sign the Petition: Stop letting candidates who lose the popular vote win the presidency, putting the legitimacy of the Supreme Court and our democracy at risk >>

The justices of the Supreme Court are among the nine most influential people in this country. But right now, a majority of them were appointed by either George W. Bush or Donald Trump – who, in 2000 and 2016 respectively, failed to get more votes from the American people than their opponent.

That’s right: the Court’s dramatic shift to the far right is partially due to the current Electoral College system – an antiquated and unjust way of electing the president that gives some voters more of a voice than others.
