Electoral College Obsolete?

This is disturbing is so many ways. First, Megyn Kelly is a lawyer and should have known this is unconstitutional but she didn't even bring that up. Second, in order to change the way the POTUS is elected, there would have to be a constitutional amendment. Third, the states that have passed legislation bypassing the Constitution and the states considering it are practicing lawlessness.

The Framers of the Constitution  created the electoral college in order to protect the smaller states from being overrun and ruled by the larger states. If the electoral college is eliminated, and it will be by the actions of these states, the metropolitan areas of our country will elect the president and the rest of the country will have no voice. However, if the majority of the population wishes to change the way we elect the president there is one legal way to do it. Amend the Constitution of the United States.

All my life I've been told the United States of America is a nation of laws and not of men. No, it's not. We've become a nation of lawless men and unfortunately those lawless men are in charge of our federal government and evidently our state governments. Our country is being systematically destroyed by the people we have elected and who have sworn to uphold our laws.
