    I'm not american so maybe I'm mistaken here but wasn't this thing inspired by the 2016 election? So aren't the states that agreed to this already blue states anyway?

    The electoral college does need a couple of revisions:
    1. Each state gets 1 vote regardless of population.
    2. Each state *must* vote according to the popular vote of that state.

  • Jacob Adam Grier

    I don't know why anyone would be so against something that protects minority group interests and requires a candidate to win a plurality of groups and a plurality of interests over most of the country. Sure winning over the group with the most individuals is great and all. . aka self destruction for every nation that has tried it. Consider this: The US is the most diverse (actual diversity, not the sjw definition of diversity) nation to ever exist. Nations that were for the most part homogeneous with few differing interests were torn apart by popular vote systems. What do you really think will happen to the US under this type of system? There is a good reason the US is the oldest Constitutionally ruled nation on Earth and the EC is part of that. France Became a Democracy shortly after we won our independence. How many constitutions have they had since then? 16! Each with massive instability, revolution, riots, and ample amounts of death and destruction. . . . Please consider that when you think of abandoning the EC.

    Also the NPV is a dead movement with leftist adoption of the cause.

    I've heard that there's a possible other 'snag' in that interstate agreements, because they cross state borders, have to be approved by Congress, via Article I Section 10 "No State shall, without the Consent of Congress... enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State."
    If so, then there's also the oddity that the Compact could go into affect, but without Congress approving it, would mean that there's no method of enforcing it anyway, because it's invalid.

    I WIsh Brazil had an electoral College, the founding fathers of the US were really smart, foreseeing a scenario where the tyranny of the majority could oppress the real minorities, making it so urban areas could dictate the lives on rural areas, not knowing anything about their issues and needs, taking away their voice and representation entirely.
    Honestly, if such a thing happens it would be better for the US to simply split and remove the U from US.

    The electoral college was made to stop precisely what the open border lunatics are trying to do with illegals. The Democrats of today are attempting to and would happily continue to flood the country with immigrants in exchange for votes - easily overturning any election made by citizens.

    This is why some of the candidates want to get rid of it, its stopped the idiots running states like California (Which has dozens of cities worse than a third world country) into the ground from doing the same with America.

    I think where people get most confused is that they think we are a democracy and it’s kinda brainwashed into us that we are, even politicians say we are and for presidents. But we are not a democracy we are a republic. The root of evil is mob rule, that’s why they set it up this way. To protect minorities and have the system freely flow between one party and another when we get tired of certain policy’s.

      Generation Y and Z are majority dem. Hispanics, African Americans, and Asians are majority dem. These three populations are growing in the US, whereas Caucasian populations are shrinking. There is a growing educational divide as well. The majority of college grads and those who have postgraduate education are democratic. The number of people in this group is also growing proportionally. The number of unreligious and nonreligious people in the U.S. is also growing. These people mostly identify as dem as well.
      The Christian, Caucasian, Silent and Boomer generations are shrinking proportionately to death, irreligious trends, and immigration. The rural part of the country is also shrinking proportionally as kids move to the city. These are the majority Republican sections of the population.
      I'm sorry to tell you that your dream will not come to pass.

    This sounds like a great way to start a civil war. If history has taught us anything, people don't like change, so this is a terrible idea. Plus direct democracy is bad, it's how you get socialism to rise up in a country, and we all know what happens to socialist countries.

    That being said I enjoy the fact that you start this by explaining the point of the Electoral College without mindlessly parroting the same BS people use to complain about it.
    Also lovely to see the exactly the problem with this plan, can't wait til some state betrays this.

  • Jilk

    I like how Grey provides both sides of the argument here.
    You can hypothetically have a President say “Fuck this state in particular and everyone who lives there,” lose in that state in a landslide, win the nationwide popular vote, and have the state be forced into voting for a president that has a grudge against it.

    • Quintinohthree
      Quintinohthree 4 days ago

      Of course with the popular vote being the deciding factor it's much less likely that such a thing would happen because losing a state by a landslide over a minor loss hurts your chances substantially, whereas it makes no difference in the winner-takes-all system. Yes, your state's electors may sometimes have to vote for a candidate your state doesn't particularly like, but at least each candidate will want to make your state like them as much as possible even in those cases.

    The sad part about this is that you can give Democrats the cheats to win yet they'll still trip over themselves & fail miserably.
    EVERY chance they had to overturn things in their favor resulted in exposing themselves or eating each other.
