The Democrat-controlled Colorado legislature has passed a bill aimed at eliminating the Electoral College. Governor Polis evidently plans to sign it. Under this law, Colorado's electoral votes would be given to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote (democracy).
Our Founders wisely created the Electoral College system so that heavily-populated areas, (such as New York and California) would not be the sole determinants of presidential elections. If enough states approve this legislation, the protection provided by the Founders -- which gives the "fly-over states" a voice in elections -- will be gone.
This movement was started because Al Gore, and then Hillary Clinton, won the popular vote (slightly) but lost the electoral vote. Instead of accepting the results of a system that has served us well for almost 250 years, the Democrat/leftist losers are determined to change laws and stage silent coups.
The Electoral College is the same principle set up by our Founders for Congress. The House has representatives based on population. The Senate has two representatives per state. The more staid Senate balances the more volatile House. Most state legislatures use the same format.
Democracy is two wolves and a sheep, each with equal votes, deciding what to have for dinner. The U.S. is not a democracy. We are a constitutional republic. People who cannot accept that can always move to a democratic country.
If Trump wins the popular vote in 2020 will these people still seek to use only the popular vote? I doubt it.
