People often talk about America as a Democracy. It is not supposed to be a Democracy. Democracy is just one of the three primary forms of government. In order to maintain a long-term government, a Republic must be formed with all three pillar: Principality, Aristocracy, and Democracy. That is what the Founding Fathers created. The Electoral College is the last vestige of a system designed to keep our society from descending into Anarchy, Despotism, or Oligarchy. There needs to be a balance between a voice for the Individual, the Elite, and the States or the Republic is completely gone and it is just a matter of time before it crumbles down.
