One man = one vote?

I know, I know, it goes against all that is right and good. In a perfect world, we should all get one vote and majority should rule.

For example, here's one who should not get a vote:

Don't fool yourself. We don't have one man one vote thanks to that relic known as the Electoral college. We kinda have a rube goldberg type electoral system, where if you are member of the minority party in your state.... your vote doesn't count. If your state has low voter turnout and you vote, your vote counts for more than someone in a state with higher voter turnout. Its a real bitch.
