Electoral College... Keep it or kill it?
Is it time to kill the electoral college and finally make this country a direct democracy?
Why or why not.
I love how people always say how people in small states wont have a voice.. Thats a common misconception...
State lines dont matter.. 1 person, 1 vote..
Did yall know, at minimum 11 states are needed to win an election with the Electoral College...
But to be fair, it would only take 9 states to get a majority in a direct democracy... But thats under the condition that EVERYONE in that state votes for the same candidate.
Well, get rid of the Electoral College, Get rid of Political parties... And we are set.
TiredTrucker, you fail to get my argument. Under a direct democracy, where people are voting dosent matter. What does matter is the number of votes for the candidate.
1 person:1 vote
I believe that candidates would be inclined to branch out and not focus only on the higher populated states.
can you give me an example of a Direct democracy turned dictatorship.
united states 1776
electoral College: 1804...
I think you have the dates wrong, but we arent arguing that...
You are talking about actions a standing president is taking. Which would be Checked by the branches. At the time of voting, one could not do such a thing. Irrelevant
