"It is the delegates job to make themselves informed, to study the alternatives and make reasoned, moral, just and sound choices that will best suit the area they each represent.
A republic works best when the masses select educated people of good character for their delegates. The party-ed system that evolved almost immediately in this country works against this in that the parties usually try to dictate the selections often by pushing uninformed people (party cronies) into delegate positions.
But delegates and in the case of the Electoral College, electors are supposed to be free agents guided by their own moral compass and their own sound, informed judgment.
Don't be fooled into thinking the Electoral College was a random thought, our fore fathers knew what a republic was and put this in place to protect us from mob rule." - MindWalker55, DailyPaul Member coaching Mark Twain, 2012.
Oft, I am thought the fool. Fortunately, I am have my wits about me.
Thank you for your reply. I will continue my study & journal my travails. Best regards.
I strongly support Ron Paul & his guidance toward "We the People" restoring our own country as our "Republic for Which We Stand."
"Home of the Free. Land of the Brave."
