In Federalist Paper #68 (1788) Alexander Hamilton urged our Founders to put in place the Electoral College as the last bulwark against a charlatan gaining control of the American Republic. Hamilton’s words have never rung more true than today. He wrote:
“Nothing was more to be desired than that every practicable obstacle should be opposed to cabal, intrigue, and corruption. These most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally have been expected to make their approaches from more than one quarter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils. How could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union?” Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Paper #68 (1788)
That is precisely what is happening today. Putin and the Russians have “raised a creature of their own” in the guise of Donald Trump and will soon see him placed in the White House. After 288 years, the Electoral College is finally called on to perform its sacred duty- to protect the American Republic, our Constitution and our people, from a “creature” raised up by a foreign power in order to take control of the United States.
It’s time Electoral College. Do your duty. Only you stand between us and the destruction of the Republic by a corrupt creature.
