Why We Have The Electoral College

Even though over 50% of Californians wanted Clinton, that one state didn’t get to dictate their wishes to the Rust Belt, the Bible belt, the flyover states, and the manufacturing states. This way each state gets a little credit for its sovereignty, uniqueness and values, which is necessary to preserve the decentralization of power which makes this a more perfect union. It makes the President and Congress more broad-minded.  The Electoral College keeps over populated states like CA from dictating their will to the whole country. It was also necessary if the New Republic wanted the smaller states to join the union. Without the Electoral College we would have remained a collection of individual states.  Today without the Electoral College the overpopulated big cities would rule the entire country and there is nothing that 85% of the country (by land mass) could do about it.  The founding fathers were ahead of their time.

I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts. — Ronald Reagan
