Electoral College is unfair
The Founding Fathers were brilliant in forming the rules for our new nation, and most of them still hold true. However, given the advancement in communications, transportation and the development of the once barren, far reaching areas, the Electoral College has become an unfair vehicle that usurps the will of the voters (“Ditch the Electoral College? Yes we can,” Nov. 13).
Every person in every state has an equal chance to make his or her choice. This election did not declare the candidate with the majority of actual votes the presidentelect — a once viable, useful and nowobsolete law has.
My future is not at stake, but that of my children and grandchildren is. Already, people who discriminate, who are racists and who want to change laws to make us all live by their beliefs are being chosen to serve in the government by the presidentelect.
I want to live in a country where each of us can live and make our own decisions. I don’t want to decide what’s best for anyone else nor they for me. Mypersonal decisions are no one’s business nor theirs mine, and they are certainly not the government’s. I hope the new administration realizes they did not get a mandate to reverse all laws that they religiously, morally or in any way find offensive. They should work on keeping us safe, healthy and loving our neighbor.
