    Our founders never intended for our country to be a pure democracy—and personally, I’m glad that a majority vote doesn’t decide everything in this country. When everything is subject to a majority vote, “we the people” can make boneheaded decisions that don’t benefit us in the long term. That’s why our government has checks and balances, why the legislative branch of our government is most prominent in our Constitution, why each state has an equal number of senators, and why we use electoral votes to determine the Presidential election winner.
