The Purpose of the Electoral College

by John P. Reisman last modified Dec 25, 2020 11:16 AM
See, here’s the thing. People are saying let’s get rid of the Electoral College. They say this because it looks like it is broken and typically reference the Bush/Gore and Trump/Hillary elections with regard to the popular vote. The thing is that the electoral college is broken. But should we throw it away or fix it?
The Purpose of the Electoral College

All the founding fathers supported the Electoral College

Well, first, it’s in the U.S. Constitution so getting rid of it is not so easy. Second, it would be easier to fix it…if we could just get some cooperation across the aisle. But both sides would have to act like mature adults and I don’t see that happening easily.


Of course the smartest fix would be to get The Centrist Party on the ballot so we can just start fixing things. But that is up to us, the voters…the more the merrier, so do check it out.
