No, I didn't say that. I just said that's where it comes from. Your joke wasn't obvious, so I was explaining. It'd require an amendment to remove the electoral college, and that's not easy. There have been proposals to alter the process, but none have made it. Two-thirds majority in both houses, plus three-fourths majority of Americans is required to pass an amendment. It's not easy. But proposals will keep coming in and hopefully one of these days one will pass.
And I was being sarcastic when I said that about the electoral colleges, but I can see no good reason for them actually making the call. What is the purpose of electoral colleges? Why can't the people be trusted to decide who is to be their president? And your argument is that the US has had such a system before, therefore the US should continue to use it. That is not a very good argument.
