Ditto that. The Constitution was conceived to protect us all. Brilliantly so. Checks and balances assure oversight of the executive and constraint on tyranny of legislative majority. The electoral college is an indispensable part of the system. The Founders were well aware of the weakest link in any system of governance, man.

Right you are- check out Canada. This is what so called Democracy has caused. One area of Canada (lots of people) decides all issues in Canada. The author doesn't see fit to mention that the people living in small states would be disenfranchised effectively if the electoral college were abolished. New Hampshire, Maine etc would get no attention from any candidate. Also, the Democrats would be able to steal elections so much easier if the electoral college were abolished.
