The electoral college is politically correct

TO THE EDITOR

I still hear talk and read about local people who are angry about our president getting elected and their desire to get rid of the electoral college in favor of the popular vote for president. This is far from the first time this has happened. Just remember: Be very afraid of what you wish for.

If that happens your vote in Hudson and as a Wisconsinite will never ever matter again, and that a dozen cities in this nation could be responsible for the outcome of every future presidential election. You are saying that you and your neighbors' voice and vote do not matter when it comes to who leads our country. This is a thoughtless, reckless and imprudent stance and we, in our small communities and states, should be grateful for the wisdom of our founding fathers' abundant and timeless intelligence regarding political balance. They understood actual political correctness!
