The only question now is whether the Trump Admin has enough b@lls to thoroughly investigate, and if warranted, prosecute everyone in the Obama Admin, including Obama himself.

Why the Founders Created the Electoral College
Note that everyone's favorite founder, Hamilton, defended it.
Though occasionally maligned, this system of electing a chief executive has been incredibly successful for the American people.

“In creating the basic architecture of the American government, the Founders struggled to satisfy each state’s demand for greater representation while attempting to balance popular sovereignty against the risk posed to the minority from majoritarian rule.”

The Founders wanted to empower democratic elements in the American system, but they feared a kind of pure, unrestrained democracy that had brought down great republics of the past.

As students of ancient history, the Founders feared the destructive passions of direct democracy, and as recent subjects of an overreaching monarch, they equally feared the rule of an elite unresponsive to the will of the people. The Electoral College was a compromise, neither fully democratic nor aristocratic.

America’s presidential election system also was designed to empower the states, not just the American people as an undifferentiated mass.
