AW mini-editorial: Constitution prescribes Electoral College


Addicted Member
Most Americans have pledged allegiance to our flag, and when they did so, they acknowledged "the flag" and to "the Republic for which it stands' -- not to the democracy for which it stands.

America's Founding Fathers didn't want a democracy, with a popular vote, for fear that a few large population centers would dictate our legislative and executive agendas, disenfranchising all but the most populous states. It was true in 1788, when the Constitution was ratified, and it’s true today.

The Electoral College is part of that republic and ensures that the intention in our Constitution is carried out.

Therefore, be remindful that those who push for scrapping the republic and the Electoral College are acting in direct violation of The Pledge Of Allegiance and the sacred document called the U.S. Constitution.
