The electoral college consists of 538 electors, and of those, a candidate needs 270 votes to become president. Although the Founding Fathers wanted the people to have a say, there was concern that a charismatic tyrant could manipulate public opinion and come into power. Alexander Hamilton briefly addressed these concerns in the Federalist Papers. The idea was that the electors would be a group of people who would ensure that a qualified person would become president. (Source: reference.com)
Hillary Clinton’s demise in the 2016 US Presidential election was of her own undoing. Her past has finally caught up with her. The following two videos were published on November 2, 2016 and November 7, 2016 the day before the election. The first is a hard hitting and sobering list of her past deeds most folks are not aware of. However, I am sure the electoral college of voters were quite aware and decided enough was enough. The second is of her husband and former President Bill Clinton’s past and ongoing deeds.
Donald Trump has been close friends with the Clintons for years and I feel he was quite aware of Hillary’s ruthlessness. Years ago when asked in an interview if he would consider running for President, Donald Trump stated that he would if he felt the need to. I also imagine long before the 2016 election he felt that need rise more than ever. His children are grown now so they can run his businesses while he runs the country.
The United States has not been a democracy for some time now. It is an oligarchy run by the super rich elite as revealed in a major university study. President Jimmy Carter made this observation as well.
