Joe, perhaps you should determine which candidates lines up more closely with the ‘will of the people’ and maybe you will find that that person is Hillary.
However, the ‘will of the people’ can be a dangerous thing. Remember slavery, jim crow, Asian-Americans being imprisoned, women have no vote, LGBT folks have no rights, world wars, etc?
And just how will this ‘self governing’ work when roads need to be built, healthcare needs to be addressed, schools need to educate, etc?
And what if you didn’t have the luxury of living in a state where you knew Hillary would get all the electoral votes? What would you vote for if you knew your vote would decide if we have a President Trump or a President Clinton?
