It seems that folks on both the left and right have no real inclination as to the purpose of the electoral college. The reason that we continue to utilize the electoral college is to prevent the large population centers from electing the President of the United States. In other words, it forces the candidates to visit New Hampshire, Iowa, and other states often times referred to as “Fly Over” country. Folks, the electoral college is what prevents mob rule and anarchy. Remember that we are not a democracy, but a representative republic and as such, we elect representatives to do our bidding (at least in theory). I fully support the electoral college and believe that it is the best way to elect our chief executive. What think you?
