Defending the Electoral College, and federalism, is crucial to our republic

Washington Examiner | Jake Curtis) In the September/October issue of Politico Magazine, Tim Alberta asks an important question: Is the Electoral College doomed?

Last week, Hillary Clinton made clear where she stands on the issue. While Alberta doesn't arrive at a definitive answer, he does a fine job objectively examining both sides of the debate.

" The fabric of American empire ought to rest on the solid basis of THE CONSENT OF THE PEOPLE. The streams of national power ought to flow from that pure, original fountain of all legitimate authority. "

-- Alexander Hamilton (Federalist No. 22, 14 December 1787)
