The Electoral College is nothing more than our STATES casting their Votes to elect the President - of the United STATES.
Importantly, it is also nothing LESS.
In this endless assault against our States electing the President of the United STATES, I still think that the point that trumps all others is that the election of the President is one of ASSIGNMENT and not one of the best handicapping system for a democracy. The Founders were crystal clear that they were NOT going to have a democracy in place for the U.S. Federation of States. If any STATE wished to practice democracy, they remained free to do so, as long as the State did not violate any of the principles that they bound themselves to in the confines of the U.S. Constitution.
But, just exactly how "Romneycare" escaped from the State of Massachusetts in 2010 to become "Obamacare", which was forced upon the rest of the States, so, too, has "DEMOCRACY" escaped out of a handful of States and is being forced upon the other States and the Federation itself.
The Leftists back the NPV because they are wanting to install democracy where it does not exist so that they will be able to permanently control everyone else in the country.
As the Founders themselves profusely told us - that will end the United States and in short order.
