    And the final control for the people is the Second Amemdment! As long as we have that freedom, the Government cannot take control, unless we, as a population allow it!

    Ah, an insurrectionist interpretation of the 2nd. Personally, I'm pretty sure that's why it's there.

    Wonder how long before the black suburbans show up.

    Actually, the Electoral College protects the minority. Had the candidate that received the majority of votes won, Trump would not be residing in the WH.

    Another situations our Founders never envisioned is the huge disparity in the population of states. N & S Dakota with less than 2mil population have 4 Senators. California with over 40mil has only 2 Senators!

    Not exactly what I would call representative government.
    When it comes to Trump, it is increasingly difficult to distinguish between a political strategy and a nervous breakdown. His tweeted trash talk, his incoherent conspiracy theories and his shameless embrace of sleaziness are not the signs of a healthy mind.

    You don’t need to be a Democrat to appreciate the impeachment of Trump. You just have to be a patriot.

    Everyone gets 2 senators. The number of representatives each state gets is based on the population of the state. California has 53 representatives to the US House of Representatives, North and South Dakota have 1 representative each.

    Good Grief, Franco....this is elementary school social studies.

    A new record for most ignorant post ever.
    If you are offended by what is said, ask yourself, is it because it was true?

    Actually, I think that they did, at least to some degree, foresee that there might be quite a disparity in population among the states and that is one reason why they set up the senate and house as they did, keeping the tyranny of the majority from making the smaller states irrelevant.

    As far as I'm concerned, California has 2 Senators too many.

    Read this month's Imprimis, it is an excellent article on the history and purpose of the electoral college.

Remember that the joy of the journey is worth the difficulties along the way. Don’t let anyone steal that joy. Guard it well, and at the end of the road you can own it and revel in it, with all the other memories of the trip.” Connie Cleveland
