Why I like the Electoral College:

Why I like the Electoral College:

A national recount would be impossible. In 1960, 1968, 1976, 2000, and maybe 2012, there would have been screams and cries from the losers for a national recount. If we can barely recount Florida today , how could we recount the whole nation? 

The EC has worked fine since 1789, and has always provided a smooth transition of power. Never assume that is a given. 

No major democracy has a full direct election of the Commander-in-Chief, b/c it breeds revolutions .

If it is not broken , do not fix it .
