I am opposed to replacing the Electoral College with a simple popular vote because I'd rather live in the United States of America than Detroit. My opinion is based on two indisputable facts: First, that the majority of Americans live in urban centers and that anyone who can capture the vote of just a few of the largest of them can almost certainly win the popular vote in America; and second, that candidates will cater to the needs and interests of the majority to win their support. Thus, anyone living outside those areas will be ignored.
Now let's look at how well urban areas have fared under the benevolence of such loving care. Detroit is a prime example. Although Steven Crowder is a comedian and social commentator, sort of a Mark Twain of our time, the facts that he presents in his tour of Detroit are verifiable.
I'm certain that if you were to ask today, you'd find that a majority of Americans want to eliminate the Electoral College and deny Donald Trump access to the White House. Hell, I'm not particularly happy about him being there. However, we are not the Democratic Peoples Republic of America. The majority doesn't rule. We live by the Rule of Law and that rule specifies that Presidents will be elected by the Electoral College, and I support the Rule of Law that rests upon the foundation of our Constitution. Furthermore, I once took an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, and that I would bear true faith and allegiance to the same.
I still live by that oath.
