Is the Electoral College "racist" and a "scam" as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claims? Or was Alexander Hamilton right when he declared that "if it be not perfect, it is at least excellent"? In this Broadside, Trent England explains why we have the Electoral College, how it shapes American politics, and why preserving it is necessary to maintain our republican form of government. With an organized campaign trying to hijack the constitution's state-by-state system in favor of a direct election, now is the time for Americans to come to the defense of the Electoral College.
