[Regarding: "Eric Holder: Abolish the Electoral College"] Too many people are incapable of realizing the complexity of human existence. They live in a materialistic, two-dimensional world.
The Electoral College is the last remnant of the Republic that wards off the evils of an almost-realized mob-rule, democratic/socialistic government. It is essential to the Republic! It protects the responsible population from becoming the victims of the ne'er-do-wells and fools that cast greedy, selfish votes. It's what keeps the U.S. from becoming the United Ghettos of America.

I know not of constitutional legalities; however, this threat to the Republic seems to pit the removal of organic principles from the Constitution against states' 10th Amendment rights. This foolish move and the subversive fools that support it are clearly intent on not just a conversion of the Republic to communism but to the final destruction of the United States. If successful, it is indeed grounds for civil war!
