That's not exactly what it does.
Eliminating the electoral college would make Republican votes in California actually matter. Which could cause more Republicans to vote.
That's what the electoral college does.
Republicans in blue states get screwed over, because their vote doesn't matter.
Democrats in red states gets screwed over, because their vote doesn't matter.
How far left or right someone is, has absolutely no bearing on how "calm or gentle" people are.
Yes, the evil coastal states making every vote the same.
Tossing the EC would not lead to solely Democratic American leadership. The electoral college has voted the same as the popular vote nearly every single election. So no, eliminating the EC would not cause only Democrat American leadership.
What happened to creating wealth?
>Are you trying to say that people don't or won't move if they can't live the type of life they want because of how the Gov is being run?
It's unlikely. Most families are mixed.
>the coasts are now screwed
More than likely both sides would be fine.
>plus the illegal immigrants aren't wanted there
Several red states have some of the largest undocumented populations.
>I guess if we just start tossing stuff out and changing things that don't favor us, well then, what's really off the table?
Yes, making every vote equal and making every vote worth something is just unthinkable.
Reps in Cali still wouldn't get their way, so what's the difference?
A more balanced system would be to have only Democrat leadership instead of the back and forth that tends to take place with the existing system?
So you're saying the past and present doesn't help predict the future?
Which will lead to the coastal states getting the locked in Democrat leadership they want, that their opposition doesn't. Who cares though right? They can fight can't they? It's not like they aren't being given an option. Hmm, I wonder if people can work to pay more for things or grow things themselves?
I thought the past and present didn't help predict the future, but now it does in this case?
Tell that to the poor and minorities. What happened to everyone working together? What happened to give and take?
Try going without food, water, oil, or electricity for a couple days, or half as much anyway, and not for vacation. Now imagine that happening over weeks and months consistently. Everything's going to be just fine? Ironic since that's what they say in the movies before everyone get's snuffed.
Being undocumented makes it kinda hard to say how many there really are no? Plus it's for things like cheap labor to keep the produce prices low, which isn't necessary in this situation anymore. It's not like the one's who wanted to stay couldn't become tax paying citizens.
It is when it only ends up giving one side what it wants. The fact that side doesn't seem to be able to see this, or knows it and doesn't care, is all the more reason to make sure the EC remains in place. It's the Dems who are trying to accomplish this, and since they aren't in power and very well may lose again, you can't seriously believe they are doing this so the Reps have an equal chance at winning, otherwise why would they bother if the pop vote almost always ends up the same as the EC anyway, right?
