Why Not This December?
Why an Electoral College? The most complete answer can be found at FactCheck.org, http://www.factcheck.org/2008/02/the-reason-for-the-electoral-college. My paraphrase; to ensure never by the tyranny of the majority is one totally incapable to govern placed in this nationís highest office. And in all the years that we have had the electoral college it has never been more important than now. If it is never to be more than mere formality, it should be abolished with a constitutional amendment. But if individual electors are to search their consciences and vote for what is best for this country, the time is now.
