    Pray tell, what is "anti-democratic"?

    Something you decide yourself depending upon what is said and by whom?

    Seems so ...

    mixed government is not a democratic form of government
    Nope, the senate was obtained by free elections as of 1866. From here, The United States Senate:
    Congress passed a law in 1866 regulating how and when senators were elected in each state. This was the first change in the process of senatorial elections created by the Founders. The law helped but did not entirely solve the problem, and deadlocks in some legislatures continued to cause long vacancies in some Senate seats.
    It was the first time that a change was made in the manner of voting in the US. And we need another change badly. That of the Electoral College that was "invented" simply at a time when getting the vote-tabulation to DC in order for the winner to be accepted by Congress.

    We no longer need the state-based Electoral College for the election of a President of the Nation.

    And about the right-to-vote:
    15th Amendment (1870): "The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude."
    Refer to qualified historical references, because it seems you've dreamed up definitions to suit your own purposes. They are pathetically wrong, wrong, wrong ...

    Re: The minority majority

    Isn't this like the 78th thread on this topic, all with the same rationale, which is that the EC is bad because it keeps Democrats from winning every election? Please give it a rest.
