not going to do anything about his many conflicts of interest around the world. He’s already enriching himself from his position. It also seems clear to me that he’s Putin’s puppet. And his campaign has reportedly been threatening electoral college voters. So, pretty much exactly the kind of corrupt candidate engaging in intrigue while in thrall to foreign powers that Hamilton was confident the Electoral College would block.
But I don’t think that’s going to happen. After living through 2016, I no longer believe there are enough principled Republicans to save the party from Donald Trump. I’ve decided that Monday is going to be when I decide how I feel about the electoral college. If by some miracle Trump is stopped and some other Republican is elected in his place, I’ll agree that the electoral college serves some purpose. If not, then it’s clearly useless and should be eliminated.
