it is large enough to take everything you have.

Is the electoral college still a useful function in today's America politics?
Posted by Bob Friday, 2012-November-30
Back when our Constitution was originally penned most of the population was not aware of current events as we are today. News in those days traveled slow and many times did not represent the actual facts of the time.
Today however with the radio, television, and the Internet word travels as fast as the speed of light. People are much more aware of what is occurring around them, and much more able to reach an informed decision on the selection of their president. The only thing the electoral College does today is to ensure that the candidates for president and vice president do not campaign in all 50 states. If the electoral college was eliminated and the decision on who is elected was determined by popular vote, then every person's vote would be counted equally, that is of equal weight. It is unfair that only 1% of the large state can cause every person's vote in that state to be counted for one candidate, leaving 49% without a voice in the electoral process.
