The Pacific Regional Message Board
The electoral college is an illogical, undemocratic, and outdated system, which the Founding Fathers originally created to prevent the uneducated from voting for the wrong candidates. It also grants certain states a greater vote than they should have, simply because they are swing states. Why would you possibly want it to remain?
I wasn't talking about that. If you look at the proportions of state populations to electoral votes, some states have higher proportions than others, mainly the lesser populated states having higher proportions than greater populated states.
There's actually a good reason why it is there.
Thing is, if the Electoral College was removed, the states with the largest populations would determine the outcome of every election. The cities -- predominantly blue, but let's not get into that -- would swamp all of the lesser populated counties with their votes. This means most of the American states would have little to no say at all in who gets elected. This meme here illustrates it: http://68.media.tumblr.com/e63fd4f70bbbcd5bd7e5d1428dd772df/tumblr_ogfofbvuD11tqnoyio1_500.jpg Incidentally, this is why some states have more Electoral College votes, because of their population.
But you see it takes away from meaning that everyone's vote is equal. Sure each states have different issues but that's more of the state government job. The federal government sure helps that but they solve issues more on a national level. And that more affects different kinds of people than different states.
The u.s isnt a democracy.
never has been. Its constitutional republic.
The E.C is fine. Shing. It makes sense.... If you're on discord or skype dm me next week Id love to chat.

I see your point. I'm just more of utilitarian not egalitarian(I think that's the right philosophy)
Nevermind. I meant deontologist not egalitarian.
Sounds reasonable. Most people unfortunately don't act in the best interest of their country.
