Not Great Expectations Or Performances. Repercussions Pending?

Timestamp: Very early Saturday afternoon

One of the problems most honest Americans have with our political system is the Electoral College. It is no coincidence that many nations have imitated our Constitution when designing theirs but sans an Electoral College. The institution was a necessity in the formative days of our country as well as one of the many compromises necessary to get the United States of America off the ground. In one of several late-night conversations my friend Rose gave me the basis of this solution.
