Electors should reject Trump
Alexander Hamilton contended, in Federalist No. 68, that the Electoral College prevents influence by foreign interests in the U.S. presidential election. James Madison argued in Federalist No. 10 that the Electoral College protects the republic from mischief of faction, citizens united by a common impulse that is adverse to the rights of other citizens.
The Electoral College was created to protect the republic from a candidate like Donald Trump, and it is time for the electors to fulfill this duty. The electors have the constitutional right, and the moral responsibility, to support the popular vote winner in this election.
