The go-to excuse of the left for wanting to destroy or change every American institution that might keep them from winning an election and ruling without challenge is that these institutions are “racist” and the Founders who created them were racist. The latest is the claim that the Electoral College was created to protect slavery and slave states.
At the link, something you won’t find in the Democratic Presidential field – an expert on American history – explains that “nothing could be further from the truth.” The real reason -- to protect smaller states from the tyranny of larger states -- is just as valid today as it was then, maybe even more so with so many states moving to give away their Electoral votes to whoever wins the popular vote, even if that candidate isn’t on their state’s ballot.
By the way, there are now 12 states representing 181 electors that have signed onto that deal. Before it actually has an effect on the 2020 election and sparks a Constitutional crisis, some conservative organization needs to file a legal challenge. It’s not only an obvious attempt to get around the Constitutional requirements for federal elections, it’s also a violation of equal protection for state legislators to give away their constituents’ right to have a say in the Presidential election to voters in other states.
I thought liberals were the ones who were so worked up about everyone being able to vote and have a say in elections. Unless you vote the “wrong way,” and then they’ll give your Electoral votes away to New York and California.
