In the wake of Donald Trump’s victory, some really sad and silly things have been happening. Now, keep in mind that I was as solid a critic of Trump as anyone might want to find. I’m still distressed that he has become the titular head of a party (Republican) and a movement (conservative) with which I always have been aligned.
Yet I accept election results that are not fraudulent and work with those results as best I can.

By the way, 3/4 of the states would have to approve an amendment to do away with our manner of choosing the president. That’s not going to happen.
Now we have others advocating that we get rid of states. We’re all just one big happy country, they say, and the existence of states gets in the way. We all pretty much think and act alike, we’re told.

The instrument for your protection is the Constitution you seem to disdain. If you were thinking clearly, you would recognize it for what it is:
