Why We Need a New Election System?
But, even in principle, the electoral college is not worth saving. Americans feel such euphoric pride for their "democracy" for a reason. It represents much that we value in government and, to a degree, in life freedom, control over our future, and concern with the fate of others. The electoral college violates what should be considered a fundamental right (at least in this country): the right to self-governance, a right on which this nation is built.
The Electoral College is unfair, inaccurate, and unaccountable. Its abolition is the only path to a true American Democracy. The public and its attitudes have changed since the framing of the Constitution. The American "democracy" has existed for over 200 years, and citizens are ready, as they have been for decades, if not centuries, to finally control their own country.
