New York, NY & LA, CA has a different out look on life then people in Minot, ND & Bryant, OH.
Why should we let the populated cities select our President?

Good question...I guess. Why not just let all the Merkin people elect their president, irrespective of where they live?

No, the EC disenfranchises Merkins, depresses voter turnout and potentially thwarts the will of the people. Down with EC -- Up with PV

Depresses voter turnout, huh? Probably not as much as the Demopublicans putting into nomination some the weirdest collection of egomaniacal misfits they could find in the U.S. of A.

Even so, I can hardly imagine a voter waking-up and saying, "I would vote today except the damned EC disenfranchised me! Instead, I'm gonna grab a brewski and watch NASCAR on my TV."

More EC!

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

~ Senator Barack H. Obama
