Sounds good. America shouldn't be ruled by the minority party.

You are a fool. The only reason this country ever had a union of states at the beginning is because of the provisions made to assure that the larger population states couldn’t dictate and dominate the less populous.

Today, it would be even worse. It would be about 8 cities calling all the shots for the entirety of the United States. If you think that will fly you are mistaken.

Skip all the primaries in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, etc. nothing but campaigning in NYC, LA, Chicago, etc. Nowhere else matters.

That’s not a country I want to live in.

You want to change the Constitution for popular vote? Have at it and get 38 states to agree. That is how you would bring it about.

We wont be living in it. If the EC were abolished, states would secede. Not going to be ruled by NY, LA, and the coastal loons.

Still have the house and senate representing those areas to the federal government, president isn’t a dictator with unilateral power.

RE: House Democrats have introduced a bill to abolish the electoral college
The interesting thing that gets ignored is that most democracies choose their chief executives indirectly. Westminster parliamentary democracies do it inherently. Those that do direct election tend to require a majority, with a runoff if nobody gets 50%+1. That means, among other things, that Hillary would not necessarily have "won" a popular vote in 2016. It would have been a runoff, with results ultimately depending on how the libertarians went.

One other interesting thing is that most of the better world leaders tend to have been elected indirectly, while many of the ones elected directly tend to be pretty despicable characters.

I'll give this an honest try real quick...

See, swags, it is not to be ruled by the "minority party". It is to be protected FROM the tyranny of the majority.
Imagine you are a sheep. And you are in the company of two (2) wolves, and the three of you decide to vote on "what's for dinner". You want majority rules then?

Nah, it was because of slavery. EC gave slave owners more power. If we are going to keep this relic then we need more House members or shift the number of electoral college votes to represent the proportion of their population. California should have 200+ electoral votes if Wyoming gets 3.

Says the party that gets 46-47% of the popular vote for president, runs Senate "majorities" that represents 44% of the population but confirmed 66% of the SC justices.

You’re too ignorant to see my point for what it is. Your 4 year hissyfit and coup against the President speaks to what I’m talking about. As do the 4 year riots and rhetoric from librocrites such as yourself.

You biatch, break stuff, burn stuff and brutalize until you get your way and want to punish those dissenting opinions after you get what you want. It’s who you people are.
Most of us didn’t hate you before the 2016 election, we just disagreed with your politics. But now your side and your side alone, has made it personal with your 4 year ridiculous rant. Now most of us hope you rot in hell. And that’s on you and your side, COMPLETELY.

I truly hate to speak that way about anyone or any group of people. Makes me sick to my stomach. But that’s what happens when liberals make people choose sides. That’s what they do and they do it all the time. Pick this side or you’re racist, dumb, uneducated, brainwashed, a nazi, a whatever.
People just get fed up and say I’m not gonna take it anymore.
