Democracy is gay. It allows faggots to spread aids instead of being terrified to act gay in public. It also stands in the way of Lynch mobs hanging pedophiles and subversive vermin. NS or fascism is the future.

We are not a democracy. We are a republic. The Electoral College is one of the mechanisms that keep us a republic.

We used to be a republic. Now it is a velvet dictatorship with the Jews in charge. The only things that get passed bipartisan with no media coverage benefit them. Their judges do nationwide injunctions to their benefit in case anything we want passes.

Only politicians they approve of can get elected because of their monopoly on media.

I don't think any system with coating is viable anymore because half the intelegent people are brainwashed by the lying press and the low IQ monkeys imported from shitholes vote for whoever gives them free shit.

We need a European philosopher-King type leader to clean things up and root out this foreign infection in media/education/politics. Also to stomp on this degeneracy run rampant.

Republic is the form of state. Democracy is the form of government.

Dictatorial Republics are a thing.

the electoral college was put in place to keep the small population states from being steamrolled by 2 or 3 large states. What candidate in his/her right mind would spend any time in New Hampshire, Iowa et al. 35% of the electoral votes are in 6 states - 189 of the 270 needed. The constitution allows each state the ability to determine the manner in how that state's electors are chosen.

Founding fathers probably should have spelled out how the states could determine their electors.

The constitution allows each state the ability to determine the manner in how that state's electors are chosen.

If Minnesota keeps filling up with Somalis, that state's electoral votes might be determined by a witch doctor examining chicken entrails.

... though that's still better than Democrats allowing the dead to vote multiple times

Minnesota was 84% white in 2017, so no that is not going to happen.

Goddamnit these faggots moving here from liberal states are really starting to piss me off. The funny thing is that this shit is going to backfire. Trump will win the popular vote next election by a landslide and the streets will once again be awash in liberal tears. Fuck these idiots

There is no Constitutional provision or Federal law that requires Electors to vote according to the results of the popular vote in their states. Some states, however, require Electors to cast their votes according to the popular vote. These pledges fall into two categories—Electors bound by state law and those bound by pledges to political parties.

The U.S. Supreme Court has held that the Constitution does not require that Electors be completely free to act as they choose and therefore, political parties may extract pledges from electors to vote for the parties' nominees. Some state laws provide that so-called "faithless Electors" may be subject to fines or may be disqualified for casting an invalid vote and be replaced by a substitute elector. The Supreme Court has not specifically ruled on the question of whether pledges and penalties for failure to vote as pledged may be enforced under the Constitution. No Elector has ever been prosecuted for failing to vote as pledged.

Today, it is rare for Electors to disregard the popular vote by casting their electoral vote for someone other than their party's candidate. Electors generally hold a leadership position in their party or were chosen to recognize years of loyal service to the party. Throughout our history as a nation, more than 99 percent of Electors have voted as pledged.

US Constitution - Article II has your answer OP but here are some links.

The founding fathers assumed these electors would be honorable people acting in good faith. Seems to me there are fewer honorable people in politics these days then there may have been in the past.

No need for Nevada to even hold elections! What great savings for other projects. But, what do they say when they're asked to swear that their actions best represent their constituency? Couldn't possibly even answer because they wouldn't know.

That means their votes will go to Trump. Trump is gaining in support and we must make sure he wins by a landslide. He will win the popular vote this time. Won't all those state poloticians be upset when that happens...
