The Electoral College works, keep it.
The presidency should be determined by direct national vote.
the constitution sought to end slavery, by prohibiting slavery importation by 1808, the founders believed slavery would end after there deaths.
the u.s. was not created as a democracy, democracy is mob rule, and there are ---->no individual rights in a democracy.
there are no biblical accounts in the constitution, how does it need too be changed?.............too suit your personal needs and what you personally want?
before you talk about the constitution, you need to read it, know what it means, and read the federalist papers which explains the constitution is detail.
and that is the problem with our union, you heard correct union, the USA is not a country but a union of states.
people do not understand what our union is, how is is supposed to be run, and it has NOT been run according to the constitution for over 100 years.
so no one living has never lived under the ideas of the founders and what they created, which is why we are having the problems we have.
Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government
THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.
You make a good point, but isn't that what democracy is about? I think I'd rather see the largest "group" running everything as opposed to the group with the largest amount of money.I risk to say, that to this day, the American Electoral College is the only administrative equalizer between political groups of varied sizes. Without it, it would be just the largest group monopolizing everything once for all, like it is in Europe.
And what if you don't belong to the largest or richest group and don't want to forget yourself to join the largest group either?
I wonder if you have an opinion about that the USA is already gone as the country we learn about in class. There will be a "new" country in its place that will be controlled by groups different from what we know today. If we get the Electoral College accepted as a principle all over the world, then we may save face as one of those constituent groups in the future under such control. I am afraid that a majority status is never permanent, and that includes us too.
On the outside, trickling down on the insiders.
We won't live free until the 1% live in fear.
Hey, richboys! Imagine the boot of democracy stomping on your faces, forever.
What do you mean by "I am afraid that a majority status is never permanent, and that includes us too." Who is "us?"
As to the rest of your post, I'm not sure what you're talking about. It has nothing to do with the rest of the world.
He had the power to negotiate a treaty with France.
The Senate ratified the treaty w/ France
Congress, pursuant to its power to spend in providing for the general welfare, appropriated the money to send to France.
Looks legit to me. Show me how the Constitution was ignored.
