What do city dwellers know of farming or mining ? On the other hand, what do farmers know of semiconductor manufacturing ? And what do farmers and city slickers know of open water fishing ?
If the electoral college does not exist and the President is chosen via direct democracy, instead of the current representative method, have no doubt that the contenders will focus their energies on a few populous states, giving them disproportionate political sway in the Congress and in the Executive branches.
Ideally popular vote it is the way to go in most nations. But when you have a community
so diverse like USA, it will be unfair for other states ,that the elections could be decided by population alone.
If popular vote was implemented to elect the President , then you will have a situation ,that any state or any political party could CHEAT the elections by simply welcoming massive migration into their state and manipulate the results. This said.. if Americans adopted the popular vote system as the standard to elect presidents. They they face a major Risk .very HUGE ONE ,
that Foreigners could control the elections. For example Jews ,they all unite and could elect a jewish president always and always win. but the most problematic part will be Latinos who migrate illegally into US and later becomes legal ,that they could united and defeat natural born
anglo Americans. So effectively you could have minorities ruling in USA ,and if elect a latino President ,change the constitution and include their language. So Anglos for protection and control of their own country elections ,created the electoral system. Otherwise anglo Americans could face the dilema of becoming a minority in their own nation. This is what happened in Hawaii. That anglos now are majority and natives a minority in their own land. This could happen with Muslins , that could join together and control any election. So the electoral system
come to the rescue to give every state a fair chance to compete in the elections.
Aside that is a lie that Hillary won the popular vote.. check Alex Jones report. They hired thousands of illegal migrants to vote for Clinton in California and other states and RT live broadcast ,catched the moment that after all results were final , Hillary was added 2 hour later more votes. So the neoliberal Mafia do rigged the elections.. they holded the results *for hours* in many states that Hillary was clearly leading to see how much advantage TRump had in popular votes ,to later know how many votes they need to defeat trump. Their problem however
to be fully successful ,is that Trump won in too many states and got the 270 electoral votes mark very fast. so not even Adding the population of United States several times into Hillary side ,will have allowed them to win ,this is because trump won is vast majority of states ,they painted in Red most of United States.
So this is perhaps the reason why CLinton and Obama do not fight the results , they are afraid that a recount and investigation , shows how many millions of votes where tampered in favor
of Hillary in some states they could. Obama and Clinton were victims of the same mainstream media propaganda Polls ,that put Clinton winning easily in Florida,Ohio ,Pa and many other states. and lowered their guard in states that Hillary was supposed to win ,because republicans never win..
Trump won by a land Slide.. in popular votes AND by states support too. And any new investigation and verification of the elections results ,could expose the Fraud that Obama administration tried to do.. This is why (i think) they are very quick to not reject the results.
Because they know they screwed Big Time in rigging the elections , many reports of voting machines changing votes from trump to Clinton and they fear any major consequence and investigation into the elections. So the Globalist elite became victims of their own propaganda ,thats what it happened , they did not expected ttrump to get so overwhelming support so big ,that not even with their rigged votes could win.
In retrospective however.. i think Trump Biggest mistake he commited that could have painted in RED the entire map of United States if he dont do it and just keep shut his mouth about the stupid Wall in mexico and did not spoke bad about Latins ,that rape and steal.. etc. He could have implemented all those walls later after he is President. And he could have just focus
in telling Americans about the positive things he will make. and not go into a fight with Clinton.
Wikileaks was doing that part of destroying Hillary image. and trump will have done far better
if it doesn't show up like an egomaniac and hateful at times and just keep it cool and smile.
