The Trump slippery slope might be roadblocked by more prevailing minds. The Electoral College might prove the Founding Fathers correct in their profound vision of human nature and establishing an assessing process to our election to the highest office.
"In every government on earth is some trace of human weakness, some germ of corruption and degeneracy, which cunning will discover and wickedness insensibly open, cultivate and improve. Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves therefore are its only safe depositaries. And to render even them safe, their minds must be improved to a certain degree." - Notes on the State of Virginia, 1782, Thomas Jefferson
The Fourth Estate being corrupted by Reaganomics thus allowing 5 corporations to own all news media, maybe the Electoral College, hoping that they have not been corrupted by Citizens United, might be the long debated instrument that will render us safe.
