Once again Progressives are talking about ridding our country of the Electoral College. They hate it because their candidate lost the election, but won the popular vote. Instead of having a candidate that appeals to citizens from across the country, the left wants states with large populations to decide who’ll become President.
This call to change our system to ‘pure democracy’ is not surprising. Instead of winning within our checks and balances system, the left tries to subvert our institutions to forcibly get their way. We see this all the time. Today there are protests in large cities because ‘their’ candidate didn’t win. They think that the rest of America will now kowtow to their demands due to their belief in mob rule.
Knowing that subversives existed; our Founding Fathers had to make the difficult decision on how our new country would elect its President. The first choice they had was pure democracy, which is a popular vote by the citizens. All that would be needed is a plurality to win.
