Lincoln saved the country 150 years ago. It’s up to us to save it again today.
--George Washington, First Inaugural Address, 1789
It took the bloodiest war in our history to “save” our country the last time it was this divided.
We can learn from the past by implementing a simpler, better, and less contentious alternative, such as apportioning Presidential electors by Congressional seats (as is now done in Maine and Nebraska).
Were this to be implemented nationwide, it would help better reflect the will of voters throughout each state (instead of rewarding fraud in densely populated city centers such as Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, and so on).
Let us do that without throwing the constitution to the wind. Lincoln, while good intentioned, was willing to throw away established constitution rights for his narrow-minded and rather unpopular view of State’s rights. Since that time it has been down hill for our nation. All you need to do is look at any major American city to see the results.
