"If you can keep it," as Benjamin Franklin said.
The Founding Fathers despised democracy. They knew their history and they understood it always collapsed in mass murder and and torture and mutilation and the collapse of government and society.
They wanted to put some institutions between Mass Man and the government. That's the purpose of the Electoral College. They had no interest in the democratic election of the President. Some of them didn't even want a President.
They only wanted the best to vote. White men of property, which meant those with some intelligence. They had no intention of women or blacks voting. Or Muslims, or Mexicans, or Asians.
The myth is that the Hildabeast won the popular vote. I seriously doubt that. Once you take out the million or so illegal aliens voting, Trump crushed Clinton.
And even if the vote was razor-thin, so what? Trump crushed Clinton in the electoral college.
I'm originally from Illinois and despise the People's Communist Democracy of Cook Country (which means Chicago). Why should Cook County outvote the rest of the rest of the state and take their money - which is what they do.
And why should a populous state such as the People's Communist Democracy of California have any say over, say, Missouri or Tennessee? That's what democracy does. The Electoral College puts a stop to that.
Please put out of your mind the MSM (or anybody) screaming that the Hildabeast won the popular vote. She didn't. And even if she barely did, it means nothing because direct democracy (except for towns) is a catastrophe.
The Founding Fathers knew what they were doing.
