Monday through Thursday

To praraphrase Hamilton (Who still is my favorite Federalist even though I'm not a fan of the Federalists in general) the Electoral College is protect our country from ignorant people. That is a summation of Federalist Rule #62. In the long history of popular vote vs. the Electoral College, the one time the electoral college won, we were savaged by a stupid person. Hamilton was wrong, the Electoral College didn't save us from stupidity, it embraced stupidity. (Even my second favorite Federalist, Madison, would agree that Bush was a tyrant.) The Electoral College was a bad idea then as it is now.

The argument againist the Electoral College makes sense, however, with gerrymandered districts.This argument made by REPUBLICUS that if you elect an idiot, you can always vote him out doesn't really work. Although, that is not a great argument, the point being, sometimes people make bad choices, but with a balanced government we can fix that. Because a strong court and Congress and the president all checking each other's work makes sense.

Scott Walker was a mistake. His funders made a simiar argument as REPUBLICUS to keep the bum in office so he can serve out his term. They made it sound like the people of Wisconsin are tired of the recall. No, they are tired of the bad results Scott Walker was giving them. That argument is a perversion of REPUBLICUS. I do believe in fair elections, and if the Republicans want to game the system, we can either dismantle a corrupt, antiquated system of elections or we can ignore them and let them take away the power of the people to change us from a representative democracy to fascist state. If you are not familiar with the move to get rid of the Electoral College, you should check it out.

Now, I'm going to start asking you this every episode in this story: please go to the paypal link and make a payment to help aid the protesters in paying legal fees or if you would rather send a check, please message Sue Trace and she will help you. They do have attorneys who are representing them for low or no cost. But at $36 per jury fee, the costs are mounting. These people are singled out by the Scott Walker administration and are trying be silenced instead of being allowed to express their Constitutionally protected rights.
