Abolish the Electoral College
Article published on

Editor:
Election Day means candidates in different venues encouraging people to vote for them, especially president of the United States.

What happens if voters do not like either candidate and decide not to vote or judge their vote on superficial issues, what then? Magazines claimed Democratic President Barack Obama has a wife who wants to be a fashion icon.

His opponent, Republican Mitt Romney, appeared to want to keep women barefoot and pregnant rather than be equal to a man and hold public office.

Even if Americans vote for the best candidate, there is still the Electoral College, which can change the election to suit itself, not the general public.

The Electoral College has the choice of voting against the people’s choice or abstaining from voting altogether. In 2001, George W. Bush won the general election due to the Electoral College, even though Al Gore won the popular vote. How can we have a United States of America if voting is based on state by state. I think it is time for all Americans to push legislation to get rid of the Electoral College, so that only voters count nationwide, not state versus state.
