After the 2016 election I almost feel the same about letting the public vote.

Truly one election not going your way is proof we should go back to serfdom. The proles must learn their place!

2016 went the way it did because of the electoral college - the winner of the election actually lost the popular vote.

If the US system was more democratic, not less, it would have avoided the current regime. (no electoral college)
