That was one of the most intelligent, thoughtful articles I've seen in a very long time.
It's truly sad that most people don't understand the electoral college, let alone the reasoning for it. This nation is a union of states. The states pick the president of the union. They were supposed to pick their representatives in Congress as well, but we summarily eliminated that process with the same ignorance that will be the downfall of the electoral college. Our founders were light-years ahead of us in their wisdom. We are fools, destroying the best governmental system ever devised.
God help us - it's Rome all over again.
