    The electoral college was designed first to protect slave states, second to keep an unfit man like Trump from winning the presidency, third to maintain a strong voice for all states .

    Slavery is no longer around... Clearly the EC has spectacularly failed in the second aspect... And the "strong voice" has come tp dominate american politics too much, as the president gets a minority of the popular vote, and the majority in the senate represents only about 15% of the country's population.

    I would say it's time for a closer look at the EC.

    The main thing for conservatives is that we the people are less involved in selecting the president.

    Then you may have to pick someone who appeals to more people. Isn't that how it should work?

    We are not a Democracy! Our Government is a Constitutional Republic Governed By the Rule of Law. There would be no need to have any representatives of the people. The states with the Largest Populations would determine every election. If you live in Delaware, your vote will never count. I can not believe how stupid liberal socialists are?

    Do you really think the vote in Delaware counts now? how many campaign stops did the candidates make in Delaware in the 2016 election?
