They said you don't need an Amendment, because it seems that 13 States already changed that into: The College in those States always have to elect the person who has the "popular" votes country wide. He said, thus if more States adapt that rule, then you don't need an Amemdment
It's actually a little confusing.
It's true that every state has the ability to choose how their Electors are supposed to vote, but it will still take a Constitutional Amendment to completely do away with the Electoral College. That's because Article II, Section I of the Constitution explicitly states that the Electoral College chooses the President.
It's a promising sign that some states are starting to take a harder look at how their electors are supposed to vote, but we still have a long way to go before we ever truly allow the people to decide who their President is.
Yes Jared, you are right. I hope you finally admit that this country refuses to accept that it is "weird" compared to common sense used all over the world to elect people or have decent health care or infrastructure or gun laws compared to other civilized countries. Indeed we deserve what we elect. All the things you said would happen are gone now; everything is now in the hands of an Hitler figure who no one trusts with "nukes". He will say lets "nuke" something and an hour later says no we should not, but then the damage is done and we are all dead. I hope you saw Bill Maher last night; he was right on about this country. Sorry Jared the picture is looking horrible if you see who he is gathering around him. Let alone his business will flourish so he can become a multi, multi billionaire while in office. Indeed just because "antique "rules run this country and even new laws are crazy here as well; just look at the useless "texting" law behind the wheel here in FL, crazy.
I hope you finally come to your senses about what is wrong with this country.
I advise your fiancee to hoard boxes full of birth control pills, because shortly they are no longer allowed in this backwards country. As "Eternal" would have written; the J.B.Society has taken over.
