... The Electoral College – which was first introduced in 1804 – is comprised of 538 electors.

What do their eyes tell us? The eyes are the most revealing part of the face. Hillary smiles a lot and her eyes lift and brighten when she does. Trump keeps a scowl on his face and his eyes are more slits and guarded looking. Can the eyes reveal anything about their personalities? The Chinese seem to think so.

Sooner than those controlling America thinks, it will be forced to deal with it's slavery roots and how its treatment of Black people has always been at the core of the formulation of its government.

I am okay with the EC because of it's origins. America was a house built on sand. Trump is the chickens coming home to roost.

With this, you posit to be on the best side of this debate, which unfortunately has reduced itself to some issuing negative ratings, all over the place, smh, rather than accepting facts.

In support of your position, I refer to this post made early in the Thread:

... Direct national election of the President (which was proposed by a delegate from would have enabled the North to outvote the South, because "the South would get no credit for its half-million slaves, none of whom, of course, would be able to vote. The electoral college system that ultimately emerged gave the South partial—three-fifths—credit for its slaves." The Electoral College compromise thus allowed states to disfranchise large numbers of citizens while maintaining the same influence in the Electoral College. Amar and Amar note ...
