The Electoral College Must Go!

(Before It's News)

Something is terribly wrong when a candidate for President wins the popular vote – but loses the election.

For the fifth time in our history this miscarriage of justice, this slap in the face of we, the people, has occurred. And we, the Democrats, have now won the popular vote and lost the Electoral College in two of the past five elections.

The Electoral College was a fine method for electing a president – in 1790, when life was far more local and information took far more time to travel across a vast continent. That was then, but this is now. This now archaic system distorts the one-person, one-vote principle of democracy because electoral votes are not distributed according to population, thus an individual citizen in Wyoming has more than triple the weight in electoral votes as an individual in California. There is so much wrong with this system and I invite you to check out these problems for yourself at: https://www.minnpost.com/eric-black-ink/2012/10/10-reasons-why-electoral-college-problem

And, when you hear that “the people have spoken,” a phrase uttered yesterday even by President Obama, more precisely the people have not spoken – the 538 members of the Electoral College have spoken!

Please sign this petition below to abolish this unfair system of electing our President and Vice-President – and pass it on to your friends.
