Cracking the Blocks

Thanks to electoral-vote.com I discovered the efforts of Colorado Democrats who hope not to be disenfranchised in the presidential election this year as reported in the Rocky Mountain News at the beginning of August.

This is exactly in line with what I was advocating in response to the New York Times editorial about abolishing the electoral college. Right now there are too many states taken for granted in every election but if we put the vote of every elector in play to some degree we will have a much more democratic system as it was designed to be. I suggest that the voiceless Republicans in California and New York try to get similar measures on their ballots for November.

    I am a firm proponent of removing the electoral college. In todays technology, we can finally make this country what our founding fathers wanted it to be. A true democracy, which was next to impossible at the time, but not now. It needs to be addressed. It is the only way the people will take back the government.

    You should have read my earlier post. Our founding fathers did not choose the electoral college simply as a way to make elections easier. Their reasons – whether right or wrong – are as valid today as they were in 1789. Back in 1789 they still had to count every vote in order to determine who the electors would be.

    Read Right Data – Wrong Conclusion to hear my reasons for why eliminating the electoral college should not be our first course of action to fix our election system.
