Now, just imagine you’re in the red and Hillary won.

Showing me a map of low population density is not an argument. You realize you are arguing against democracy? These low population states get a more than fair shake with 2 senators just like every other state so that people in Iowa have just as much say as California.

You should feel lucky that we live in a republic and not a true democracy. That we now live with a mechanism, the electoral college, that was put in place to stop demagogues like trump, has failed its purpose, it’s time to abolish it. The likelihood of that happening anytime soon is nil. That 3M people had their votes wiped out by a system born out of a black’s 3/5th of a vote is a modern tragedy.

Like what you read? Give Eric B a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
