What would letter writer Gerry Goldstein have us do if we don’t like a president — have a coup and let the military remove him or her from office? What we do in this country is have an election and the voters, by way of the Electoral College, decide who will run the country for four years. If he wants to burn some pent-up energy, he should get a movement going to abolish the Electoral College by a constitutional amendment.
We need to vote for the president the same way we vote for mayor, members of Congress and governor — by direct vote. Maybe then poor candidates running for president can’t have their minions rig elections as was done in 2000 and 2004 and as they are trying to do for future elections.
