I've heard your socalled "best" arguments to keep the Electoral College for four years, and all of them are weak and pathetic. Sorry, the Electoral College still sucks. Get rid of it or reform it.

As it turns out, and I can’t stress this enough, Electoral College defenders DO like democracy. They think it’s great. They like ordinary people like you and me having power and having a voice. THEY want to be heard. I’ve heard your arguments to keep the Electoral College for four years now. But every single one of your arguments are so weak and predictable that they’re kind of boring at this point. It’s not that I don’t understand how presidential elections were supposed to go. It's that how they were supposed to go sucks and needs to change. Again, no, this doesn’t mean I want a DIRECT democracy. I want a true REPRESENTATIVE democracy.
