There is again some hope that we will reform our process of electing presidents after Donald Trump on Tuesday became the fifth person in American history to win the electoral college vote without winning the popular vote. Already, supporters of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton — who won the popular vote — have demanded by demonstrations and petitions that the electoral college alter its procedures so that the winner of the popular vote never again loses the election.

But those hoping for reform shouldn’t hold their breath.

No....the electoral college was dreamed up by the Founding Fathers. Because some of them didn't trust the people to select the "right" person for president.

Oh, those Founding Fathers. They were ALWAYS right. Like the slavery thing. And the idea that male white landowners should vote. Yup....these guys knew what they were doing. After all, they got their ideas from
GOD (who is the REAL author of the Constitution, and a white male, BTW).

Even Trump doesn't believe this BS.
