An Examination into the leading principles of the Federal Constitution

In ancient Rome, the king was elective, and so were the consuls, who were the executive officers in the republic. But they were elected by the body of the people, in their public assemblies; and this circumstance paved the way for such excessive bribery and corruption as are wholly unknown in modern times. The president of the United States is also elective; but by a few men--chosen by the several legislatures--under their inspection--separated at a vast distance--and holding no office under the United States. Such a mode of election almost precludes the possibility of corruption. Besides, no state however large, has the power of chusing a president in that state; for each elector must choose at least one man, who is not an inhabitant of that State to which he belongs. -N. Webster


Why are the people not equally excited to vote for state legislatures as they are for president?

Namaska Dr. Black, I comprehend the evolution of Rome began as a Kingdom, transitioned into a Republic and finally into an Empire.

That is correct Dr. B.  I really didn't pay as much attention as maybe I should have to the opening sentence.  I was not aware of any Roman king to begin with but thank you for pointing to this.  The addition can cause confusion to those who never look for themselves.  What really grabbed my attention was the information regarding the electors of the P.O.T.U.S.

Adisa---I am almost sure that Rome developed from kingdom into the next stages.  Make sure that you unravel step by step. B.
