"Massachusetts has decided to become the sixth state--joining Illinois, New Jersey, Hawaii, Maryland, and Washington--to bypass the United States Constitution and demonstrate its utter ignorance of what this country is all about. The legislature there has voted to bypass the Electoral College system for choosing the president and vice-president in favor of a national popular vote.
I'm beginning to wonder how many Americans still understand why this country is called the United States of America. I suspect a combination of dumbed-down public schools, the unconscionable expansion of federalism and an activist judiciary contribute to a certain level of ignorance regarding the true nature of our democratic republic, but it still amazes me how many Americans don't get it."more
