“Why The Founding Fathers Despised Democracy” – by Jim Huntzinger for “Townhall” Finance; good reminder that our founding fathers understood that strict democracies have historically ended in mob rule & tyranny, and hence created the American system as a constitutional republic responsible for protecting God-given rights of every person with representatives chosen by the people; the electoral college prevents highly populated states from electing a president while ignoring input from smaller states with less population – I am thankful for their brilliance, forethought, & many sacrifices for the benefit of posterity.
