If the Electoral College is flawed, then how about the Senate?
#1
Barb Boxer doesn't like the Constitution

These Liberal Cause Agent guys and gals will argue any contrived point to near death to try to get an upper hand.  But, if we are to abandon the concept of the Republic which is the basis of the Electoral College, then what about all of those Dem-supported pieces of legislation which have been squashed in the Senate?  The Senate where places like North Dakota have the same power as California?  We have been living without democracy from day one.

But I suppose they haven't thought of this yet.

The Connecticut Compromise of 1787 originally specified that the Senate was to be chosen by State Legislators,
and not by popular vote.

But that changed with the passage of the 17th Amendment in 1913 (the same year we got the Federal Reserve).

I think that the Founders understood quite clearly that a direct democracy almost always led to simple mob rule.

Which most Democrats would probably think is just fine.

Barbara Boxer is an idiot.
