Why let a bunch of people choose their president? Why not create a situation where the people were/are fed up and DEMAND that they change the laws.
The people demand it so it has t be right, right? So what happens each time the voting laws are changed? Why not the constitution? Then they can throw
their hands up and say, "Hey, America wanted this!" and their hands are kinda kept clean.
A quick, and legal way, to get the masses to demand changes to the constitution. Very cynical method but then stack the cards in favor for the future.
In the end, Americans give away their freedom to pass a law to make them feel good. Until it comes back later to haunt them then an act of the Stay
Puff Marshmallow Man himself is needed to change that change.
I wonder what the "suggested" changes will look like? Maybe remove the "two terms only" for the president? Maybe "hey the popular vote has to count
for some electoral college votes" type thing? Any other guesses?
