Electoral College helps avoid trap of only listening to the like-minded

Letters to the Editor


To the editor:

Regarding David Malan’s June 25 letter about the electoral college. I would guess the reason other countries and states do not follow our nation’s example is due to it being complicated. States have enough problems with just counting votes each election, much less counting people and splitting up votes by region fairly.

Nothing the founding fathers did about making our government was designed to be “easy.” I believe your problem is that you only want to listen to like-minded people.

Only listening to like-minded people and using a popular vote is how the Democratic South kept segregation alive for decades after the Civil War.
