I understand the Founders looked at European governments and wanted to avoid the problems there. Why is it still needed? What is the point? What good does it do now? From where I'm standing, all it is doing is blocking the democratic process, rather than helping it as it is apparently supposed to do.
The Founding Fathers weren't infallible and there's plenty to criticise them for. Just saying that they decided that surely isn't a reason in and of itself to keep it.
What success does it have that couldn't have been achieved without it? Sure, it hadn't got in the way for most of America's history, but can you say, for sure, that there couldn't have been success without it?
How is it democratic when more people voted for one candidate and it lets the other candidate become President? I still haven't been able to have it explained why some people's votes should be more important than others. Its surely an archaic system and one that is no longer fit for purpose.
