The founding fathers were afraid of a direct election because the rabble might elect someone who didn’t have their interests at heart. What do you think this means? - “create a buffer between the population and the selection of a President.” In the early years of the United States, only landed, White men could vote. They wanted to preserve that privilege. They didn’t want the rest of the everyday population to interfere with that.

I’ve lived all over the world you condescending twit, including 2.5 years in Bangladesh, a Muslim country. I have never once said anything about children not being raised by their parents. I don’t believe I said anything about children at all.
