The Electoral College was established so that there would be representation of all the states for a vote. We are a republic. Our model is a free democracy to hear all the ideas and concerns. If we were not a republic then New York, Chicago, California, and other few largest states would win by population numbers of their votes. That would be a totalitarian government, because the smaller states could not weigh in. Majority smaller state votes would be silenced, and their personal state issues not considered by the candidates who wouldn't even bother going to those states to campaign. The candidates would spend time out to get the votes from the larger states. We are a united states. This is what has raised us to be a super power.

You certain of that Mrs. O?

Give me your take on the reason for the Electoral College. Popular vote would have got you Hillary Clinton without representation for smaller states. She said she would "grow the economy." Really?

Yes. Trump aggravates people with what he says, but he did grow the economy in record breaking ways.

Now are you trying to tick off ogoun with the Mrs. O stuff? :SuN024:
