Just because a thought arrives in your mind, it doesn’t mean it should automatically be put out onto social media for all to see. In fact, this should rarely be the case.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is running for president and in most polls, she’s getting 1 percent support. Well, her latest tweet isn’t likely to help her out much.
Our democracy is built on the principle of one person, one vote. It can't function until we restore that principle. It's time to abolish the Electoral College. https://t.co/TACwKfAZBN

Apparently, a sitting United States senator is unaware that we live in a constitutional republic. Several Twitter users tried to let New York’s senator in on this fact.
What democracy? Where do you live?

Newsflash. We don't live in a democracy. It's called a constitutional republic.

Apparently they don’t teach concepts of federalism and Constitutional history very effectively at UCLA Law.

We really need to require Senators to take a civics class. #cluelesssenGillibrand

You clearly know nothing about the Constitution and its role to mitigate tyranny. Therefore, you have shown your true ignorance in governing and have failed the country. Please resign your position as Senator immediately and please find another line of work. Maybe retail?

Our Republic is built on the principle of divided and limited government. Let's get back to that principle.
