Nov. 21, 2016 By Jack Jodell , the American Dissident (in association with BURR DEMING, the gifted writer who is the creator of and chief author over at the phenomenal website Fair and Unbalanced. com – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column).
Hello, everybody. This year’s stunning election results are being repeatedly examined, analyzed, sliced, and diced in many ways, and will continue being so for a long time to come. While Trump obtained a majority of Electoral College votes, and was thus awarded the presidency, his opponent Clinton far outpolled him in the popular vote and was therefore declared the loser. This was only the fourth time in our entire history such a thing has happened, but it is the second time in the past four presidential elections! In light of this, there is a growing call to do away with the Electoral College altogether.
In today’s brilliant submission, our podcaster extraordinaire Burr Deming delivers a scathing damnation of this anachronism lnown as the Electoral College, correctly describing it as “insanity” and “anti-democracy.” He gives us a brief but accurate history of this institution and also a fabulously simple example of why it is so flawed.
Burr tells us, “Think you know history? Think you understand why the Electoral College was formed?
Think it was all about distrust of ‘tyranny of the majority’ and big vs small states?
