I believe that the Electoral College has some things going for it... but here's my problem with it.
I have voted Democratic for some offices, Republican for others. I've yet to vote for a Republican president in my two chances, but I've seriously thought about it, and would vote for certain Republicans... say, Colin Powell.
But in my state... it wouldn't matter. At all. Massachusetts voted for McGovern
, for cryin' out loud. We're going democratic even if they run B*rn*y the Dinosaur. There's absolutely nothing I can realistically do about it.
I could be persuaded, I suppose, that the electoral college needs to remain, but on a gut level, I'd like to abolish it. I think one person should equal one vote, period, no matter where they live.
