Committee of Eleven—The Electoral College and Why the Founders Created It

Committee of Eleven—The Electoral College and Why the Founders Created It

Athenian Democracy developed around the fifth century BC in Athens.

Direct democracy—pure democracy—is evil.

The Greeks determined this 4, 500 years ago.

The wisdom of the Electoral College is to vote the will of all the People of the United States of America.

All of the states of the Republic.

It is not necessary for our Republic to forget an ancient lesson just because certain rich actors can’t accept that their candidate lost.

The Hollywood elites claim that they are in support of the Constitution and are urging the electors to switch their vote and go against the will of the US Voters who elected Trump to be their president.

So now they care about our Constitution?  Now—when it conveniences them—they proclaim the wise words of the Founders.

Where in the hell have they been for the past eight years?

Where was their great love for our Republic’s Constitution when this president was desecrating our Constitution through his two terms?

They say that Trump’s unqualified.

Oh, really?

And what magnificent qualifications did their president for the past eight years have?

He had none.

He waltzed right into our highest office, not only absent of any suitable requirement for the office of president, but he gained his victories through the practice and use of highly questionable and illegal methods.

From utilizing agencies such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), and through various other loathsome groups, this president used cloaked concepts, such as “making the voting process easier” and made use of one of the most repulsive instruments ever created to support the ominous practice of illegal immigration—the “matricula consular.”

Of a certainty, the methods the leftists used to get their president (re)elected in 2008 and 2012 were far-reaching and all-encompassing.  Nevertheless, their candidate won.

And what exactly did these Hollywood elites say or do about such an unqualified, devious individual winning the White House?

They uttered not a word.

In 2008 and 2012—because their candidate won—they gave not one damn about our sacred Constitution.

And, upon each attack on our Constitution, by their illegal, unqualified president, they sat in silent adoration as he shaped the United States into a weak, pathetic, lawless country, bathed in racial tensions and possessed with an affinity toward racist organizations who condone violence against police.

Regarding pure democracy Plato wrote: Dictatorship naturally arises out of democracy, and the most aggravated form of tyranny and slavery out of the most extreme liberty.

Essentially, the definition of democracy is 2 wolves and 1 lamb voting on what to have for dinner.

Armed with such a succinct assessment of the evils of democracy, the Founders of our Republic developed a system that regards the popular vote with the detest it deserves.

The Founders developed and voted into the heart of our Republic a system to protect the People from democracy’s evils.  As Madison declares: it could not be less folly to abolish Liberty.

However, we can eradicate democracy.

The electoral College is not to “vote your conscious” as these Hollywood malefactors are suggesting, thereby voting against the will of the People.

Rather, it is exactly to ensure that the will of the People is obeyed.

Madison judiciously explicates: The influence of factious leaders may kindle a flame within their particular States, but will be unable to spread a general conflagration through the other States.

The vote of the Electors is to protect our Republic from having elections stolen from the People’s will.

The will of the People is not the popular vote—a democratic tool that can be easily manipulated, even more in our modern world than in the ancient world of the Athenians.

The wisdom of the Electoral College is to regard the popular vote of the Republic (Athenian Democracy) as mob rule—which is not the will of the People.

The wisdom of the Electoral College is to vote the will of all the People of the United States of America.

All of the states of the Republic.

This is what makes the duty of the Elector consecrated into the fabric of our beloved Republic.

It is your duty as an Elector to vote the “conscious” of your state’s People.

It is possible that the pure democracy vote of each individual state can be deceived and compromised by an extraordinary tyrant or cabal—the very possibility that the Founders feared and guarded against the most— but it is far more difficult for such a tyrant or cabal to do so across the entire Republic.

The People of your states have voted.

The Republic—as a whole—has elected Donald Trump to be our president.

It is your righteous duty to uphold the will of the People of your state.
