The electoral college that chooses the President was an institution created to accommodate states which relied on slave labor for their economy. In those state at the time, slaves outnumbered the white-voting men. It was created to give those slave-states' greater voting power and shift the balance in their favor. There's absolutely no reason for us to continue having this racist institution in a Democratic-Republic nation where slavery was deemed inhumane and wrong by the Governments & the Courts.


We are the only fully-developed democratic nation that does not elect our President through the will of the people. The popular vote should elect the President and I call for the elimination of the electoral college institution.
