1. To dismantle it is not saving it.
So, is he dismantling it? That is the question.

5.  Bush v. Gore
The Supreme Court majority concluded; "the individual citizen has no federal constitutional right to vote for electors for the President of the United States." Its electors in the Electoral college not the direct popular vote of the people that elects the President and Vice Pres. State legislatures appoint electors to the electoral college and those electors can, if they choose, ignore the popular will of the people in casting their vote. The word 'vote' appears in the constitution only with respect to non-discrimination, the so-called right to vote is a 'STATE RIGHT'. So, the 15th, 19th, and 26th amendments guarantee African Americans, women and 18-yr olds respectively non-discrimination in voting. They DO NOT grant them an affirmative individual rigtht to vote that follows them from state to state. Voting is a State Right.

8. Yes But If The People Get The Chance To Vote In Their Individual State
Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 01:04 AM by PennyMan
And Their Particular Candidate Wins That State Then Most Of The Time The
Electoral College Goes With That Candidate. But There Were Thousands Of
Voters All Across The Country Which Included A Large Number Of African-Americans Did Not Get That Chance.In 2000 Or 2004
